There is much you can't say when trying to describe or promote a deep sea fishing experience aboard a boat known for catching groundfish. This is because there are so many things that can also happen that you don't expect. And to describe them all when the chances of that experience happening are slim, would be too much. But strange and wondrous things happen all the time when you take a boat out fishing. And I feel that the most important thing is to have the opportunity to be able to be out there. Such a remarkable thing happened when Captain Ian Keniston ran the Bunny Clark extreme day trip on May 17, 2015. The anglers on that trip were enjoying a calm day in the fog catching many haddock when minke whales appeared lunge feeding on herring right next to the boat. The fog wasn't so thick that you couldn't see a few boat lengths. Captain Ian was afraid to start the boat for fear he might hit one of the whales or ruin the experience. And it was an experience that you almost never see on a designed whale watching trip. This was because they appeared without warning or previous knowledge that the whales were even there. As anglers were enjoying this "up close and personal" experience, Dick Slocum (NJ) had a porbeagle shark (mackerel shark) grab one of the fish he was bringing up. In the process, the shark got hooked. So Dick's groundfishing experience went from catching haddock while enjoying an unprecedented whale show to fighting a game shark. Unlike most shark encounters on a groundfish party boat, Dick won the battle. So before long, Captain Ian and, deck hand, Jared Keniston (also a licensed captain) had a 304 pound porbeagle shark tail wrapped right next to the boat. Now porbeagle shark is a very good fish to eat. It is very much like swordfish. And sometimes, depending on the fish and the cut, it tastes much better, more tender. It wasn't long before they had this big shark in the boat. Captain Ian took a picture of the shark and the anglers involved in landing it. This digital image appears on the right. The anglers in the shot, shown left to right, include Dean Wolf (NJ), Dick Slocum (NJ - I wonder if he is related to Joshua?) and Jim LeMay (ME). This is the largest porbeagle shark that has ever been landed on the Bunny Clark . The big story this season has been that the recreational angler can no longer keep cod, the mainstay of the New England party boat industry. But when there are so many other fish to catch and eat. And there are so many great experiences you can't find anywhere else. Why wouldn't you go? Special fish like Dick's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
