This black and white film shows the Lockwood Family and a group of friends out on a fishing boat from Falmouth, Cornwall. The group line-fish, eat their sandwich lunch and drink alcohol aboard the boat in a bay at Perranporth, Cornwall (?). A young boy also films their trip from the top of the boat with his handheld Cine-Kodak (?) camera.
This film opens with the Lockwood Family and a group of friends out on a fishing boat from Falmouth Pier, Cornwall. The group line-fish, eat their sandwich lunch and drink alcohol aboard the boat. St Anthony's Lighthouse, Falmouth is seen from the sea as the boat leaves the harbour. The group also line-fish in the bay at Perranporth, Cornwall (?).
The group eat their sandwiches and drink from wine glasses whilst they fish. A young boy is drinking from a glass bottle, being filmed by the camera. He laughs as he spots that he is being filmed and the drink comes out of his nose, which he dabs with a handkerchief. From on top of the roof of the boat, an older boy is filming with his camera (Cine-Kodak Model B/ BB Junior?) looking down on the group sitting in the lower deck. The group continue to fish, but are being thwarted by a flock of seagulls that eat the bait at the end of their lines.
In the final film, several large ships are seen docked in a harbour (Falmouth ?) as the boat returns to shore.
