The digital image on the right was never used on my Internet site. I took the picture during a particularly good fishing trip on April 23, 2010. The shot shows Ray Westermann (MA) holding his 7.25 pound Maine state trophy haddock which he caught that day. In fact, he caught two trophy haddock. The other one weighed 7.1 pounds. Ray won the FY'14 (Bunny Clark Fisherman of the Year award last season). In 2010, Ray came in at seventh place behind his dory mate, Jon "Griff" Griffin (MA) who was fifth in the hunt for FY'10. But Ray did win the Bunny Clark's Baitfisherman of the Year award that season, his third such award in a row. After last season, Ray has won this award for seven years in a row! The consummate haddock fisherman. As we look forward to the beginning of the Bunny Clark's 2015 fishing season, we do not know what all the fishing regulations are going to be. We know most of them, like the fact that we won't be able to keep cod. And the fact that we can't keep haddock until at least May 1. But we do not know if we are going to be able to keep any haddock after May 1. The reason for this is that the National Marine Fisheries Service (the government entity responsible for promulgating the regulations - NMFS ) can't decide if too many cod will be caught if they allow the retention of haddock. They believe that by allowing the recreational angler too large a bag limit of haddock, too many cod will be killed. A certain percentage of cod die when you catch them (called a mortality rate). NMFS is afraid the mortality rate of released cod for the season will be higher than the total number of cod (TAC or, officially, the sub-ACL) that the angler is allowed to kill in the Gulf of Maine during fiscal fishing year 2015. This based on the assumption that keeping haddock will allow anglers into areas of higher concentrations of cod. This isn't true. But they think it is. There are times when haddock and cod are found together. But this is true mostly after both species have finished spawning. And this etiology (of both species) tends to start in August and lasts through September. So will we be able to keep haddock in May? I don't have a clue. But we will be able to catch all species when the Bunny Clark is ready to sail. We have enjoyed many good haddock springs, April & May being the best months. And since the water has been colder than normal this winter our best haddock fishing will occur in May. It would be fun to be able to allow our kids to catch and keep a haddock to bring home to eat. But we are going to have to wait just a little longer to find out. Special fish like Ray's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
