First fish landings for 2022 in Newlyn.

Bass a'plenty from the beam trawler Billy Rowney which was the first trip boat to make a landing in 2022...


along with a few boxes of brill...


Dover sole...


bait in the form of small gurnard...


lemon sole...


and plaice...


while the handline fleet in some sheltered spots were able to defy the appalling weather and get some decent hauls of mackerel in over the rail...


along with more bass...


and the odd line caught pollack


at this time of year the beam trawl fleet head east of the Lizard to seek out cuttlefish...


plenty of fresh mackerel should hit the local shops later today...


along with the odd monk tail...


and a handful of red mullet...


the weather and big tide sees most of the fleet still in port this morning...


netters like the Amanda and Rachel of Ladram...


along with the Karen and Charisma of Ladram will seek out a trip later this week, weather permitting.
