The digital image on the right was taken on the July 7, 2015 Ultra Marathon Invitational offshore fishing trip. The subject, Bryan Lewer (FL) is holding his 8.25 pound Maine state trophy haddock. This is the largest haddock we have seen on the Bunny Clark this season so far. In fact, the haddock fishing has been very good this year. We may not be seeing as many trophy haddock as we have in years past. But we are seeing a lot of legal haddock. There have been very few days that we haven't reached the boat bag (3 haddock X the POB count) limit on the day trip or the longer fishing trips. A lot of this has to do with the lowering of the minimum legal size from last years twenty-one inches to seventeen inches. But most of this simply has more to do with the larger population of haddock available to thr recreational angler. The haddock are not available to us on the half day, inshore, trips as they were forty years ago. So the fishery management process hasn't helped to that degree - yet. But if the closed commercial fishing areas remain closed to commercial fishing gear, particularly mobile gear, there is hope for a complete haddock recovery. Along with the haddock, we are also catching plenty of pollock, mostly in the 7 to 15 pound range. But we have had a few up to 22 pounds. There have also been a few big cusk caught, to 26 pounds, a few halibut in the 10 pound range, some hake to 44 pounds and some nice sized redfish. But the haddock still remains the most prized of the catch on the regular trip. They are a fish that can be caught on bait, primarily, but also with a jig as well, putting all anglers on a level playing field for success. And the nice thing about catching haddock is that you don't have to fish in deep water to catch them. So, less tangled lines in the process. The haddock is considered New Englands favorite eating fish. The colder than normal water has kept the fishing very good right straight through July, something we normally equate with June fishing. And this has made it a very fun fishing year so far. So if you are interested in catching a few fish and bringing some fillets home, the time is now to enjoy the good weather and the good fishing. Nothing lasts forever. But, as of right now, the haddock (and other groundfish) are still waiting! Special fish like Bryan's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
