Good hake fishing

Well well well that was a hard week fishing 180mile west of Lands End. When
we left Newlyn the other day was fine day steaming that was it Gales every
day after that. 

Fishing was good we had 40bxs hake 1st day then 50 2nd day a
80box day and 60bxs yday. Sunday night was worst night had to stop working
due to NW gale strong gales at times and very strong gusts. We rolled some
nets on monday due to the large swell that came into the water and our gear
shifted around the ground up to a mile in places. We had no traffic to speak
of only two 30m Spanish trawlers 'Pesca Baqueiro Tres' and the 'Rio da
Bouza'. 

We left the fishing grounds last night at 6pm our ETA Newlyn is
1700hrs thiss evening we have 230bxs hake aboard and 35bxs of w/fish most XLwhiting and haddock. Landing our hake on Newlyn and Brixham fishmarkets for sale on Thursday morning.

All the best till next time
