The picture on the right was one I took during the Ultra Marathon trip in the middle of July during the 2017 season. I never used this picture until now, saving it for a time like this when party boat fishing in northern New England does not exist. The shot shows Bryan Lewer (FL/ME) holding his two Maine state trophy cusk that he caught while fishing during that trip. The larger of the two fish weighs 22 pounds, the other 21.5 pounds. These cusk were the second and third largest cusk caught on the Bunny Clark last season. The cusk, a member of the cod family, is one the recreational angler can keep. There is no bag limit for the cusk and there is no size limit as well. And that is a good thing as there is no easy way to release a cusk back alive. Very few swim to bottom as they suffer from barotrauma when being brought to the surface. Bound with air, most cusk coming from the depths have a hard time fighting the buoyancy this ailment causes. I find the cusk a good eating fish. It's popularity in dining cuisine is not nearly as great as the cod. But they are fun to catch. And they give you an unmistakable fight if you are a seasoned groundfisherman. Of course, the big ones, like Bryan's, give a great fight and can break your line if the drag on your reel isn't set properly. On the Ultra we try to find places that haven't been fished before or very often. This sometimes puts us in territories where we find very big fish. Other times it means riding around for three hours and not finding anything. But it's the closest trip we run to a twenty-four hour excursion. And it's certainly the longest trip of the year. The weather, of course, can change this and often has in the past. It's an invitational so I get to choose all the best anglers I can find to attend. So if we get the great opportunities that I am searching for, I have the talent aboard to do the job. Last year's trip featured perfect weather which translates to increased mobility. With a calm ocean it doesn't matter in which direction you are traveling, the ride is smooth and you can make the best time. And we took advantage of this that day. Some of the better fish we caught on that trip included the largest cusk of the season, a 23 pound Maine state trophy caught by Jonathan Griffin (MA), a 68 pound halibut caught by Tim Rozan (ME), one of the five largest hake we have seen in the last twenty years, a Maine state trophy of 47.5 pounds caught by Bryan Lewer and a 27 pound barndoor skate caught by Steve Selmer (NH), our largest during the 2017 Bunny Clark fishing season. The Ultra is one of our best trips of the year. But what really makes it special are the anglers who attend it with me. Special fish like Bryan's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
