The picture on the right is a digital image of Joe Columbus (MA), one of our most successful regular anglers on the Bunny Clark . The fish he is holding is a 31 pound Maine state trophy cusk that he caught during the July 20, 2021 Special Offshore Fishing Trip (SOFT) . This fish is the second largest cusk caught during the 2021 Bunny Clark fishing season. The fish ties the fifth largest cusk all time that has ever been caught on any one of my fishing boats since 1975. And it is the largest cusk Joe has ever caught by 18 pounds! The minimum acceptance weight for a cusk to be considered a trophy is 12 pounds in Maine. The Bunny Clark has quite a history, including world records, with large cusk over the years. The Bunny Clark's first world record cusk was a 29 pounder caught by Ross French (NY) in 1987 that broke the existing world record of 24 pounds 9 ounces caught by a guy off the coast of Norway in 1983. Ross' cusk's registered weight was 26.66 pounds. It was beaten only seven days later by a cusk caught off Massachusetts that officially weighed 28 pounds 15 ounces! We captured the world record again in 1988 when Neil Morrill (VT) caught a 31 pounder. We were drifting off a deep peak on the way back from fishing Tantas west of the Portland Lightship. It was the last fish in the boat. So I steamed home, got the fish weighed immediately and came up with the official registered weight of 30 pounds 1 ounce, the new official International Game Fish Association (IGFA) all tackle world record. Eight days later, it was beaten again, by a cusk caught off the coast of Norway that officially weighed 32 pounds 13 ounces! It wasn't until October 11, 2002 that we had the chance to beat it again with a 36 pound cusk caught by Kenton Geer (NH/HI). At the time, the all tackle world record was just over 34 pounds. Kenton's fish was disqualified because he caught it with a jig with a cod fly above the jig and a tube hook on the jig itself. It came under the title of "gang hooking", a no no as it concerns the IGFA rules. Today's existing all tackle world record cusk was caught in July of 2008, again, off the coast of Norway. The present world record weight is 37 pounds 14 ounces, a hell of a cusk. Joe has been fishing on the Bunny Clark for many years now. He is frequently "high hook", with the most legal fish. And he always makes a statement with a fish of note every season. Last year, 2020, it was a 50.5 pound Maine state trophy white hake. This year it was this huge cusk. I live vicariously through the exploits of my professional anglers. And I don't believe you could know who is more excited about a great catch like Joe's, Joe or I. At any rate, having anglers aboard always adds a special element to me over commercial fishing, which is why I like "party fishing" so much more. Special fish like Joe's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
