On the right is a digital image of Tina Cromwell (ME) taken with my iPhone during the September 20, 2016 marathon fishing trip aboard the Bunny Clark . She is shown holding an 18 pound pollock that she caught during the early part of the trip. Late in the day, Tina landed a 21.25 pound pollock, the fourth largest fish of the trip and the seventh largest pollock caught on the Bunny Clark this season, as of this writing. I took a picture of that fish as well but the picture posted here looked better to me. She also caught quite a few cod in the 5 to 6 pound range and other groundfish. Tina even started the doubles going by being the first angler of the day to catch two good fish on one line at the same time. These first two fish included a 13 pound pollock and an 8 pound pollock. The fishing has been really good as of late. We are seeing a good number of better sized cod. There hasn't been a problem with catching the bag limit. We are seeing less haddock inside than we were seeing. But the larger haddock on the offshore grounds are still there. The most interesting feature is the increase of larger pollock on the fishing grounds, particularly on the offshore grounds. These fish are the prime spawning fish that are just showing up. Some of those fish, like Tina's, could weigh more if it were closer to spawning time. And many of these fish are forty inches or more in fork length. We have seen this influx of bigger fish into our fishery during the fall ever since I can remember. But this year seems to be better than the last few. The problem with it as an angler is you never know when you will catch them. You can be drifting along and start catching them anywhere. The result of which often times leaves you with one fish when using a jig and fly combination. Such was the case on the marathon trip mentioned above. Some of our biggest fish that day were caught alone where a fish of approximate size hooked on the lower jig, swimming against the other fish hooked on the fly, broke the line in the middle. This while using sixty pound test leader material! Still sacrificing a jig is a small price to pay to catch a fish weighing over 20 pounds. I'm hoping that as the season progresses we see even bigger pollock and the larger cod as well. But there again is the fun of deep sea fishing; you never know! Special fish like Tina's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
