Sna 1960an, chaidh agallamh a dhèanamh le Seumas Hogg, a bha uaireigin na iasgair à Cromba, mu dheidhinn gnìomhachas an iasgaich sa bhaile. Nuair a bha e na bhalach bha timcheall air trì ceud iasgairean ann an Cromba. B' e Seumas athair Bobby agus Ghòrdain Hogg, an dithis mu dheireadh aig a bheil dualchainnt iasgairean Chrombaigh. Sa chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo tha e a' bruidhinn air iasgach nan adagan.

An Ah remember about thirty boats going to the west coast fishing from here. An there wis six men an a boy in each boat. That was apart from the men that went down the east coast, hired servants, an the men that was left at home to do the haddock fishing. Well Ah would say maself at that time there were about three hundred men in Cromarty when I wis a boy, three hundred fishermen when Ah wis a boy. An most of the fish that wis caught here an haddock, the haddock fish was transported to Dingwall an Inverness, an Ah remember as high as a hundred an eighty baskets o fish going on the boat from here to Invergordon, all bound for Inverness - haddocks.

There wis jist - there wis generally about three men, an the compliment wis four, out in a haddock boat. An they used about three lines a man, the haddocks, eight - eh, six hundred hooks in each line an three lines per man at that. That wis eighteen hundred hooks each man. Well, the worst of the work at that time wis the shelling of muscles an baiting the lines, at that time. It wis a hard job. The weemen had the worst o the job. Well, we used tae - Ah've seen as high as a ton o haddock on the boat coming in. In fact Ah sold a ton of haddocks, myself, in one catch to a curer here. Haddocks - and they were weighed some of them that day - seventeen haddocks to the hundredweight, to the hundredweight. There wis about eight or nine pound in every haddock - yes. An Ah sold them that day for five shillings per hundredweight.

And the herring fishing there was - practically all the herring fishing ports round the coast from Ireland to Yarmouth. Ah was in Donansbay [?] and in Lough Swilly, Buncrana. An I wis in Yarmouth an Lybster. An round the west coast, Stornoway, Castlebay, Stromness, Thurso, round the east coast, right doon. I've discharged two hundred and thirty cran o herring, in one shot, in Yarmouth for two an six a cran. Now that shot o herring in the present time, would be ye might say [?] fishing; it'd be two or three thousand pound the day.
