The digital image on the right was taken in the morning of April 13, 2017, on the Bunny Clark marathon fishing trip, during the first trip of the season. The angler in the picture is none other than Frank Noble (ME), one of our best regular anglers who tries to sail with us on every first trip of every season. Frank is holding a double keeper catch of cod that he caught on this trip. Both of these fish were caught on the same line at the same time, one fish on the jig and one caught on the cod fly about eighteen inches above the jig. The spring is a very active time for catching cod. And it's not unusual to catch doubles in April and May. This was a particularly good double where the smaller cod weighed 7 pounds and the larger one was 10.5 pounds. Both fish were released right after the picture was taken. Recreational anglers will not be able to keep cod while fishing in Federal waters in 2017 unless some miracle happens. But that doesn't mean you can't catch them or take the occasional picture with a particularly good looking cod. These two cod were caught in the Western Gulf of Maine closed area, closed to most commercial fishing and all commercial groundfishing. Most of these cod are resident fish, some of which stay on the same exact piece of bottom for sometimes three years at a time. Or, at least, this is what twenty years of my own cod tagging study has shown. We haven't tagged cod for a few years now. But the cod we catch in the closed areas are, generally, getting larger every year. This backs up the theory that a lot of these cod are staying in the closed areas. And the bigger they get, the more fun they are to catch via rod & reel. Haddock season opens on Saturday, April 15. The bag limit for the rest of April will be fifteen haddock a person with a minimum legal size of seventeen inches. The management proposal from May 1, 2017 forward will change the bag limit from fifteen fish to twelve fish a person with the same minimum size limit. So we may not be able to keep cod but we will be able to keep haddock, at least until the middle of September. We will have to wait and see to get our bearings on the actual season regulations, due to come out at the end of April. But I don't believe these regulations will be onerous. At this time, also, the pollock are starting to show up. We had quite a few small legal pollock (to 6.5 pounds) caught on the same day that Frank caught his nice cod double. We also caught a couple of cusk, released a couple of wolffish and caught some small mackerel. Frank told me he had a great time on the first trip. It was a beautiful day with a lot of fish caught. But Frank knows fishing and just enjoys being out there as do I. I'm looking forward to seeing Frank and many other patrons aboard the Bunny Clark this season. And it's only just the beginning! Special fish like Frank's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
