Wednesday's market a little quiet with the netter fleet and many of the smaller less powerful inshore boats kept in by the huge tide.





Back in Newlyn for a landing, the Brixham beam trawler Lloyd Tyler...


a good run of lemon sole...



and, name that fish in one, which are not lemon sole...



plus a few 'snakes' as these young conger are called, really small are known as 'whips'...



one big Cornish cod keeping an eye on the auction...



out in the harbour the netting fleet are all tied up as one of the biggest tides of the year, the Spring Equinoctial tide plays out its course...



the big Scottish prawn freezer is still with us...



giving the local trawlermen a chance to check out the twin-rigging arrangement on the stern...



and her seemingly small trawl doors...



unlike the boat herself as she is huge despite being only 20m in length...



the Banff registered Tranquility is back in Newlyn again, she is also twin-rigging but for whitefish...



the easterly breeze is keeping the harbour's latest sardine boat well of the quay this morning...



en passant is the Ullapool registered prawn trawler Franchise...



with a typical inshore prawn trawler deck layout featuring a gutting and sorting shelter on the starboard side deck...



complete with sorting table...


a must when prawning as even half decent fishing meant that at least two of the crew would be stood around the sorting table and kept busy sorting and grading each haul from first tow of the day hauled around 8 am right through to the last haul taken aboard at dusk - often the crew would finish up clearing down the deck as gone midnight with only a few hours to go before the trawl would be shot away again before first light - around 4.30 am in the summer.
