Finally #FishyFriday arrives

Thursday evening and Pendeen gig rowers get to enjoy a flat calm training session...


both beam trawls on the St Georges being readied for her first post-refit trip...


methinks there's a degree of frustration on display here...


Millenium bound in...


closely followed by the latest inshore trawler to join the fleet the Guardian...


not a bad day's work...


instructions coming from deep down in the fishroom of the Guardian...


as the day's catch is hauled to the market...


next in is Still Waters and there's a huge amount of fishing knowledge leaning over the port rail...


Friday morning's market was 100% top quality day-boat fish like these cracking Couch's bream......


and even some wrasse which make excellent sashimi when served up fresh...


prices remain strong which is just as well with the ever increasing burden of rising fuel prices....


there's plenty of red mullet...


and even the odd Zulu, no doubt caught west of the Scillys......


they say a good ship is a tidy ship, if so, Jen T must be the goodest...


even some fishermen wear yellow wellies...


the Acciona was the only non-day boat to land - plenty of top quality seine net aught haddock...


maybe the John Dory's thumbprint represents an eye and serves to confuse would be predators...


good to see the Imogen still anding the biggest shots of these gorgeous eating fish, must be in her sole...


a touch too close to the rough...


Lionel's on the move...


heading back to a berth...


scavenger...


two sides to every plaice...


megs galore...


and a few mackerel...


almost the entire fleet is at sea today...


it's be rocking in the Swordfish tonight...


one in one out...


tasty boat...


ice time...


work continues replacing the worn out fenders...


young Nigel is all smiles as the craws come ashore...


pile driver...


one to deliver, two to stand guard, fuel tankers are worth more than a bullion wagons.
