CUT­TING COD

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

— Dave Rus­sell of Bay Roberts is a slick hand with the knife, and this vo­lu­mi­nous cod fish would agree, if it weren’t be­ing sliced into meal sized fil­lets. Rus­sell is a well­known player in the fish­ery in Con­cep­tion Bay North and be­yond, and op­er­ates a fish pro­cess­ing com­pany in the town. He was ob­served fil­let­ing some freshly caught fish at his plant on Wa­ter Street on Satur­day, July 19. The fish were landed by Rus­sell’s son, Ja­son, and some of his friends dur­ing open­ing day of the recre­ational ground­fish fish­ery. Rus­sell quickly stepped in af­ter watch­ing his son clum­sily em­ploy the well­honed knife, not shy about show­ing the younger set how it’s done. The fi­nal day for the summer fish­ery, mean­while, is Aug. 10, while the fall fish­ery is sched­uled for Sept. 20-28.
