Well, we turned the corner and entered another year, 2020! Will it be the roaring twenties? At this point, who could guess. All I know is that time is going by way too fast. At this time of year, January, I think of the upcoming fishing season. I plan on when our first trip will be, I wonder what the weather will be like, if the ocean water will be as cold as previous years, I consider the changes with the new fishing regulations, etc. I also think of the fish species available during the first two weeks. If the water is warm enough we see the bigger haddock and the larger pollock. The last five springs have not been like that. In fact, the water temperatures have been decreasing every season for those last five spring starts. When this happens, what we do see is a lot of redfish. At that time of year they can be found in the shallower offshore waters. April and May being the height of their reproductive cycle. With a colder water start it also takes longer for the water to warm up. So we have also been seeing the redfish staying in the shallower water for longer into the spring. And because it is peak "spawning" time (redfish bear their young alive so I'm not sure if the word spawning is the correct terminology) we find many of the bigger redfish also in that shallower water. Last season we saw quite a few bigger redfish than is normal. Big is a relative term when considering fish species size. Maine considers a trophy redfish have a minimum size of 2 pounds. That is a big redfish. During the 2018 Bunny Clark fishing season, we saw no trophy redfish, the first year since 1983 that we haven't seen at least a couple landed. Last year there were sixteen trophy redfish landed off the Bunny Clark . One of the best catches of redfish we saw came in early June, a late period to find big redfish in the shallower water. The catch I most remember was one by Caleb Zellers (PA). On that early day in June he caught a redfish double, two fish caught on the same line at the same time. Both trophy fish, one weighed 3 pounds and the other weighed 2.75 pounds. This is the largest redfish double I can ever remember seeing caught on the Bunny Clark . It might have happened in the mid '80s. But if it did, I don't remember it. I took a picture of Caleb holding his big double. This digital image appears on the right. The 3 pounder tied for the Bunny Clark's third largest redfish of the season while the 2.75 pounder tied for the Bunny Clark's sixth largest redfish of the season. Although not very big when you consider how big cod, pollock and halibut get, the redfish is one of the finest fish to eat. A very delicate meat, it has it's own flavor and is perfect when put in a frying pan with garlic and butter. Like every season, we will take what we can get. And, of course, the anticipation and the not knowing add to the allure of fishing. I am certainly looking forward to it. I hope you are too! Special fish like Caleb's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
