Mild Monday morning in Newlyn.


Tasty looking box of shells from the netter Stelissa...



to go with her trip of pollack...



while the ground fish from the big beam trawler Enterprise included these conger eels...




ray...


turbot...



though no-one spotted the interloper in this box of octopus...



ling...




and coley came from the wreck-netter Annie May...


while the Enterprise landed monk tails...



megrim soles...



plaice...



lemon...



and Dover sole...




with a few red mullet...


and haddock thrown in for good measure...



plenty of pollack from the Annie May...



and even more bass from the Cadgwith boys for whom Christmas came early it seems, though prices for these fantastic line caught fish were well below what they should be at this time of year for such hard-won fish...



bait by the box for the crab fleet...


and for the first time this season some really good shots of mackerel from the handliners...



who also picked away a few squid...



and these delightfully tasty...



herring...



yet more mackerel from Mr Smith...



the boats are all lit up...



as are the harbour lights...



 while it now seems to be very dark in the Harbourmaster's office.
