It was the first day of the recreational groundfish fishery, which is a limited length of time when the public can fish for their own use, with a daily bag limit of five groundfish per day (including cod) and a maximum boat limit of 15 fish when three or more people are fishing.
Inshore commercial cod fishery is still under a moratorium, to increase the cod stocks after years of overfishing.
It was a rare sunny day, so we took a trip to the community of Flatrock, just north of St Johns. Flatrock is a pretty little village, with yes, you guessed it.... a lot of flat rocks, although the rock in this picture doesn't look very flat! You can read Flatrock's colourful history here.
Not a view of his best side... but he probably won't read this, but just in case he does.... I'm sorry!
More pictures of Newfoundland to come.
