Ernie Martin, one of the crew reports (April 2011):

"I was a member of the crew of the Herring Searcher when we got the Prunier Trophy in 1949.That night we caught 253.75 crans  which was the largest catch that year between two certain dates.

The skipper received a silver cigarette case and the rest of the crew received a silver plated ash tray.

The catch was caught 17 miles ENE from Smiths Knoll lightship."
