The digital image on the right is a picture of Nikki Bleau (VT) holding her 6 pound haddock. Six pounds is the largest haddock we have seen out of the hundreds of haddock we have caught this year already. Six anglers have caught haddock of 6 pounds. Nikki is one. This year has certainly been the year of the haddock. There have not been many, if any, previous years where we caught so many haddock. The big difference this year is that haddock can be found anywhere. So far, on every piece of bottom we have fished this season, there have been haddock to catch. Even where we don't expect to catch haddock we catch haddock. Many of the inshore haddock have over-wintered in the places we are catching them, I believe. Generally, haddock do not have nematodes, like the cod do. This year, however, many of the inshore haddock we have been catching have had them. Haddock don't' get these "worms" unless they stay in one place, near the hard bottom, for a longer period of time. So I believe that a lot of these haddock have become resident to some of the inshore places we fish. From 1987 until the spring of 1995, if you caught a haddock, a single haddock, it was big news. Our haddock counts in those days ranged from a low of twenty-five fish in a season to a high of fifty-eight haddock. Now, if you don't catch fifty-eight by noon on a single trip it's very unusual. So what happened? Why the change? The simple answer is the closed area number 2 on Georges Bank. It has to be. It was the only area where there were any haddock left in New England when the New England Fishery Managment Council suggested that the National Marine Fishery Service shut the area down to commercial and recreational fishing in the 1980s. We started seeing the results in May of 1995. Since that time our haddock landings have increased every year. With the increase in catch we are also seeing the haddock average size decreasing. Maybe this is related to abundance. I don't know. In our daily fishing activity we look for the bigger haddock by trying new spots, ranging further and trying deeper water than we normally fish. The hope is that we find spots where Nikki's haddock seems small. Until then Nikki's fish is the biggest of that species we have seen this season so far. Special fish like Nikki's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
