The digital image on the right is a shot of Steve LaPlante (CT) holding his 18 pound Maine state trophy cusk. He caught this fish on the Ultra Marathon on July 7, 2015. The "Ultra" is our longest offshore trip of the year. An invitational, it's a trip where we see some of our best anglers altogether in one place. It allows me to seek out new areas with a group where I know if we don't produce, it's totally my fault. On the other hand, if we find special fish, this is the crew that will catch them, if anyone can. So it's a real treat for me. It's a long trip, yes. But the memories that are created on them last a lifetime. Luckily we have always had something fond to remember about them. Steve is the consummate "Ultra" angler. I believe he has been on every one that I have ever run. He was on the trip when, on a flat calm dawn in 2009, we were fishing on Sharrer Ridge right in the path of the tall ships as they were making their way from Boston to Nova Scotia. We were fishing right at the half way point of their journey. Bryan Lewer (FL) caught a 44.5 pound Maine state trophy hake there as we saw the last ship disappear off in the horizon. That was 17 year old Bryan's largest hake of his life at that time. He went on to catch a couple larger ones in other years with me. Steve was there when Dave Gray (VT - another one of my regular Ultra anglers) caught his first legal halibut. And Steve was there when all my little discoveries were made in places where I wouldn't have otherwise been if the trip were not so long with so many great fishermen. Most of these "Ultras" were held on days where the ocean was flat calm. Some so hot that it was hard to wear any clothes at all. But a couple of the "Ultras" were so rough that even seasoned veterans, like Dick Lyle (PA) were sea sick for a spell! Steve's 18 pound cusk last year became the third largest cusk of the season. But he also caught a 44 pound Maine state trophy white hake, the largest fish of the trip, the largest hake of the Bunny Clark fishing season and the largest hake we had seen since Adam Towle (NH) caught one the same size on October 10, 2012. [Incidently, Guy Hesketh (CT), the hake king, caught one that weighed 48 pounds on June 28th of that year.] Steve also caught another Maine state trophy cusk of 14 pounds that day as well as a 28 pound Maine state trophy hake (the third largest hake of his life) and he would have had a 15 pound pollock had I not missed the fish with the gaff! Steve didn't fish with me on as many trips as he usually does last season. Many of my good anglers did not sail as much because of the cod prohibition. But Steve did sail on our best one. And I am certainly glad of that! Why did I key on the Ultra for this home page? Because I can. But also because I wanted to use Steve as one of so many examples of the great anglers who sail on the Bunny Clark every year. And also because this digital image is one I haven't used on this web site yet! Fishing is fun but the anglers we take make fishing into something memorable and, indeed, exceptional. Special fish like Steve's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
