The digital image on the right was taken with my iPhone during the marathon trip on October 6, 2016. The subject is Katie Baumann (MA) holding up her 2 pound Maine state trophy redfish (ocean perch). An excellent fisherman, Katie sailed on her maiden voyage aboard the Bunny Clark last year, 2015. By the end of that season she had garnered enough points to become our female angler of the year. This year she hasn't sailed with us as often, being busier than normal with her vocation. But when she is aboard something special always happens. Not necessarily to her but on the Bunny Clark in general. And some of that has to be the company she keeps! But Katie has caught some very big fish with me at times including her largest cusk and her largest hake last season, both trophy fish. The redfish is a species we don't usually target. They are caught incidentally in the fall when we are playing around in the deep water looking for bigger than normal groundfish. Although 2 pounds isn't big for many species of groundfish, it takes many years, approximately seventy-five years, to attain that weight for a redfish. It is also one of only two species of fish that bare its young alive. The spiny dogfish is the other. Usually, they have their "kids" in March through June in the shallower harder bottom pieces when the surface water is as cold as it gets here in New England. They feed at night as a general rule and seek the shelter of outcroppings, wrecks and hard bottom during the day. We catch them during the day when they are gathered together frequenting these bottom features. They eat many bottom dwelling arthropods, their favorite being various species of shrimp. I believe they will take a cod fly quicker than anything, when fishing for them. However, their diet makes them a very good eating fish, the fillet producing a meat that is delicate and more flavorful than other species of groundfish. And their vermilion color and big eyes make them look more like a red snapper than the normal groundfish found in New England. I love to see the redfish come over the rail. But then again I like to see any fish come over the rail, with the exception of the dogfish. Special fish like Katie's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
