A modern fishing boat near the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. On the left side of the image the "floats" that hold the top of the net are visible (notice the birds perching on them). The net itself hangs from these floats and is weighted down by weights attached to its bottom. This "U-shaped" "trap" is then hauled in towards the boat.
The fisherman in the boat is holding a good size fish in his hand.
On the top of the hill, just barely visible is the Church of the Beatitudes.
