The digital image on the right is a shot of Kleanthe "Bubby" Caryofilles (NY) holding his 23.5 pound pollock which he caught on our first fall marathon trip of the 2014 fishing season, August 28, 2014. This was the last fish to come aboard before we headed back to Perkins Cove to end the trip. He thought he had bottom. This partially because the fish was foul hooked. This is the Bunny Clark's largest pollock of the fishing season so far and the first pollock to break the elusive 20 pound barrier. And I'm sure this is the latest that we have ever caught our first pollock of the season over 20 pounds. A lot of this is due to the intense fishing pressure that groundfish are experiencing in New England. As the stocks of many species diminish, the demand for the fillets increase, driving the price up and encouraging fisherman to target the more expensive fish. Because of larger mesh sizes in the fishing nets that are used, the larger fish are becoming the first fish to be depleted on the fishing grounds. So it's becoming less and less common to see the bigger pollock, cod or haddock, our most desirable groundfish species. Add to this the increasingly efficient technology that is available today, the fish are having a harder time getting away from the fishing pressure bestowed upon them. This is leading to more restrictive fishery management measures to combat the dwindling groundfish stocks (including the prohibition of haddock & cod possession starting September 1, 2014) . Although pollock (and haddock) are showing better signs of recovery (more than just about all the other groundfish species), the stock of both fish is a long way from becoming a healthy harvestable commodity for the market. Still, there are enough groundfish around for the angler to enjoy a wonderful day of groundfishing on the ocean. Bubby's nice pollock proves this. And you don't have to bring fish home to enjoy a day of angling on the ocean. But, at this point in our fishery, we need to be more vigilant than ever to maintain our fishery before the fishing gets any worse. If this means we have to have more restrictions then so be it. I'm just hoping that any new regulations are salient and meaningful to get us where we want to go in the future. I'm all for helping the fishery. But I don't want to see regulations that decrease interest in the sport fishery and don't get the job done either. Special fish like Bubby's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
