Not quite the silver dawn of a Monday morning.

Silver Dawn leaves the ice-works berth and heads back to sea after landing the first part of her tide's trip...


all the fish on the auction this morning were the very best quality day boat fish landed from the inshore fleet like this superb squid...


lemon sole...


ray wings...


cracking tub gurnard...


quality shellfish...


superb monk and red mullet...


pristine Dovers...


and even a few totally tender Mediterranean octopus...


more meaty monk tails...


and lemons form Brackan's Spirited Lady III...


juts the one tasty morsel of a black bream...


near perfect red mullet...


and fish from dozens of handline boats working hard to land line-caught mackerel...


or better know as blackjacks...


scallops by the 10 dozen bag...

bright eyes and red gills tell you all you need to know about the quality of these pollack...


and bass...


not much crab being caught today...


but plenty being landed...


a few of the fleet that was...


visiting Brixham beamer, Sara Lena...


the Spirited Lady III all lit up...


there's crabbers and crab pots...


two new doors...


where there's hope...


even at low water over-topping affects the South Pier, a sure sign the harbour could do with the extra protection a big new breakwater would bring...


the long reach if the dredger...


high and dry on the slip, Ocean Pride.
