Skipper John Joll is known to everyone on the quay as Jon-Jon, a name he says stuck after he was one of four Johns working on the same boat. ‘Every time someone called ’John!’ we all looked round, so we all got an extra name and mine stuck,’ he said. ‘I’ve been doing this for more years than I care to remember. ‘I’ve gone from being the youngest on board to being the oldest,’ he said. ‘It’s quality we’re after, not volume – turbot, monkfish and sole. It pays to catch a bit less and catch the quality. If the fish isn’t the top quality the buyers at the auction want, then we’ll move on – but it’s not always that easy. Turbot and megrim are deeper to the west, but we can’t always work the same places, and that’s why I’m forever searching for fish, trying to do better than the last haul. There’s a determination to always do better, and that’s why I’m always searching,’ he said.
