Fish Town – 14 October 2020 – 14/10/2020 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Episode 2
Series 2

The brand new fishing boat Westro, skippered by James West, has been fishing in the North Sea for three days hunting prawns, but so far the crew has struggled to find the catch. James launched Westro just two months ago, costing him over two million pounds so he needs to see an improvement in the fishing if he is going to earn a good wage for himself and the crew. James makes the brave decision to sail 120 miles to the other side of the North Sea, hoping to find more prawns and salvage this trip. The hauls don’t improve though and James heaves up a net full of mud, causing damage to the nets. On their final haul of the trip, James finally gets a big haul to send him home happy and make the trip worthwhile.

On Scotland’s west coast, Peterhead trawler Ocean Endeavour, skippered by John Buchan, is heading out to remote fishing grounds 300 miles into the North Atlantic. On board is new recruit 17-year-old Gavin Burnett. On this trip, trainee Gavin has some new responsibilities: bringing the fish on board and cooking for the crew. The fishing is booming in Rockall and the Ocean Endeavour is bringing in big hauls of haddock, but with good fishing comes hard work and, after two days of non-stop action, exhaustion catches up on Gavin and his attention to detail starts to slip.

After returning to harbour it’s the social highlight of every fisherman’s year, the Fishing News Awards. Westro skipper James is nominated for fisherman of the year and rookie Gavin is nominated for trainee of the year, but will they come home with the prize?
