The digital image on the right is a shot of Dana Decormier (NH) holding his 27.25 pound Maine state trophy pollock. He caught this fish at 9:30 AM during the Thursday, October 22, 2015 marathon trip. As of this writing, this pollock is only the third Maine state trophy that has been landed on the Bunny Clark this season and the largest pollock that Dana has ever caught. Dana has caught a lot of big pollock over the years while fishing on the Bunny Clark . But, until this day, the largest pollock he had ever caught weighed 24 pounds, also while fishing on the Bunny Clark . He caught his 27.25 pound pollock as part of a double keeper catch with another pollock of 9 pounds, the bigger fish caught on the jig and the smaller one caught on the fly just above the jig on the same line. This double, again, as of this writing, is the Bunny Clark's third largest double of the 2015 fishing season. Typically, we catch good sized pollock all season long. But it really isn't until the fall that we see the trophy fish. This season is a bit of an exception as our largest pollock, a 29 pounder caught by Tom Donaghy (ME), was boated on August 12, 2015. But some years, like this year, when the water is cold August can be an extension of the fall. Likewise, September can be an extension of the summer when the water is warm - unlike this year. The pollock has been our most prevalent angled fish in the fall since I started taking anglers in 1975. And I can remember getting complaints in the early '80's that we weren't catching enough cod to go with them. But, in those days, we caught very few pollock under 20 pounds. And, more often, most pollock were 30 pounds or better. In 1986 alone 997 anglers received Maine state trophy awards for pollock over 30 pounds while fishing on the Bunny Clark , the minimum acceptance weight for a trophy pollock in those days. And, like it is today, only one trophy award can be given to an angler per species. And some anglers, like Al Robinson that year, caught over a hundred trophy sized pollock over 30 pounds! Of course, we didn't realize what we had. Most of us felt like it would last forever. Who knew in those days that a LORAN C (along with a good sounding machine) that could pinpoint your position to within twenty feet would ruin a fishery and take so many fish in such a short time? But that's essentially what happened. We found the little places where fish spawned and were able to go to that little spot time and time again until the spot became unproductive - no matter where it was located in the ocean. I truly believe that if not for the closed commercial fishing areas, particularly those found on Georges Bank, we would have no viable groundfishery now. But we do have the closed areas and some species, like the haddock, are showing signs of coming back. I just hope cooler heads prevail and those areas stay closed for the future of our fishery. Now when I see a pollock of 20 pounds, I appreciate them greatly. Pollock is still the go-to species in the fall, albeit they are much smaller in average size. But occasionally an angler like Dana will come along and show me an extra special fish. Of which, I truly appreciate even more! Special fish like Dana's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
