The digital image on the right shows Chris Willy (VT) holding his 11 pound Maine state trophy haddock which he caught on the May 2, 2024 marathon trip. This is the largest haddock that has been caught on the Bunny Clark since a 13 pound haddock was caught on the Bunny Clark on April 14, 2010. On April 12, 2010 a haddock was caught by William Lozada (NY) that weighed 11.1 pounds. Curt Fish (ME) caught the 13 pounder. No other haddock caught that year were as big as those two. However, it is the only registered Bunny Clark fishing season where the top thirteen haddock caught were all 9 pounds or more, the top eight being 10 to 13 pounds. Exactly fifty Maine state trophy haddock were caught that season, the most trophy haddock that the Bunny Clark has ever seen. This season, so far, we have recorded thirty-one trophy haddock. That is a big number so early in the season. On the marathon trip that Chris attended we caught ten trophy haddock. This ties the record for the number of trophy haddock caught on a single Bunny Clark trip. The last time that happened was on April 14, 2010, the day that the 13 pound haddock was caught. Chris' haddock was the third fish over the rail on that marathon trip. When I watched it come over the rail, to me, the haddock looked like a caricature of a normal sized haddock. In fact, I thought it was bigger than 11 pounds! Chris has never seen a haddock that big. And I, of course, have not seen many. Otherwise I wouldn't be so excited about this fish. As it turns out, Chris is also photogenic. So I felt compelled to put his picture on this index page. The haddock was a very rare fish to catch during the Bunny Clark years of 1984 to 1994. In 1995, May 1, to be exact, we had the first real slam of haddock with the crew from the Lighthouse Fishing Club from western Massachusetts. We have had some very successful haddock trips since that first big catch until now. Most years they are smaller than we have been seeing. Sometimes, like this year, they show up later giving the recreational angler the advantage. Sometimes they show up early, which favors the commercial fisherman, like last year. Either way, we have done something to bring the haddock back to healthy levels. We may not always get the big ones. It's rare indeed. But if haddock are sustainable in the fishery, then there is always the chance. Special fish like Chris' are the kind of fish we like to see on the Bunny Clark .
