The shot on the right is a digital image of angler Steve Selmer (NH) holding the largest wolffish of the 2020 Bunny Clark fishing season at exactly 25 pounds. This is the largest wolffish the Bunny Clark has seen since John Gardner (NY) caught a 28.5 pound wolffish on September 26, 2010. It's also the third largest wolffish that has been caught on the Bunny Clark since Don Johnson caught his 28 pound wolffish on June 22, 2004. The largest wolffish that has ever been landed on the Bunny Clark was 30 pounds caught by Gunther Schulz (Germany) on August 21, 1990. Gunther's wolffish became the Maine state angling record and remains so today. We have lost three wolffish beside the boat that were larger than 30 pounds. Noteably, the largest wolffish I have ever seen was lost by Fred Kunz (NH) in the mid 1990s. That fish was over 50 pounds and was hooked only lightly in the dorsal fin. Fred was able to bring the fish to the surface so we could all see it before the hook came out. There was a very strong current that day so it was out of gaffing range when it was lost. The International Game Fish Association all tackle world record wolffish weighed 52 pounds and was caught in 1986. Steve's wolffish is his largest. It was caught on the Ultra Marathon on July 14, 2020. It was very thin but had the frame of a wolffish that could easily have been 35 pounds. It was "all head" as they say. They are a very good eating fish. My father would eat wolffish before he would ever eat a cod. In fact, his generation disliked cod. Growing up, I never brought cod home for my mother to cook. She wouldn't do it. The keeping of wolffish stopped on May 1, 2020. A conservation group petitioned the National Marine Fisheries Service to prohibit the retention of wolffish, citing evidence that it was a threatened species. The New England Fishery Management Council was unaware this was happening until the prohibition went into marine law. There are not nearly as many wolffish as there used to be. But this is true of all the groundfish stocks in New England. They are still an exciting fish to catch. Since we can't keep them, getting Steve's fish in the boat was problematic without being able to use a gaff on it. But we were able to get it aboard, weight the fish, shoot a couple of pictures and release the fish back to the ocean alive. They are an awesome looking fish as their teeth remind one of a dog or cat's teeth. Indeed, growing up, the fish was locally known as a catfish. The teeth are used to crush shellfish, which is their primary food source. The Ultra Marathon was particularly fun last year, made more so by the catch of such magnificent fish. Special fish like Steve's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
