The 2017 Bunny Clark fishing season has been a very good one for pollock landings. It has been, probably, one of our best in recent years. You can't compare this year to the first few years that we started this deep sea fishing business. The technology has improved so drastically that the pollock numbers have decreased dramatically and the thought of catching a pollock over 30 pounds is almost impossible to comprehend. When before 1992, it was a common place thing. The fishery management scene is still trying to cope with the virtual disappearance of the spawning stock biomass of cod and the spawning stock biomass of the much larger pollock we saw in the past. I think, though, that the pollock are in a much better position to recover given the reproductive cycle, the mobility and the tremendous growth rate of the species. I guess the question is; how healthy do want to see the stocks of pollock in New England waters? The beauty of the pollock, to the recreational angler, is the fun you get from catching them and the chance that you might get one over 20 pounds. When these fish get to be 15 pounds or better, they really put on a good fight. Over the years I have tried to get employees from Barnacle Billy's , my second place of work, to enjoy a trip with me. One of our best employees took me up on the offer on September 26, 2017. The employee's name is Aaron Ham (ME). It was a perfect day but he didn't quite have his sea legs about him. So he would fish for a while and then hit the bunk for a while. His work schedule keeps him up late at night and getting out of bed later in the morning. This schedule isn't conducive to getting up at 2:00 AM to go fishing with me! But he did. And Aaron caught a lot of pollock with me, among other species. His biggest fish of the trip was a 16 pound pollock. Pictured right, I took this digital image with my iPhone in the bow where he caught this fish next to one of our other summer employees visiting from the Ukraine, Mykola "Nick" Sych. Nick had no problem with sea sickness and fished in the bow all day. But Aaron had a great time. And he appreciated the pictures I took of him. The pollock is also a great eating fish. And many meals were made for Barnacle Billy's employees after that trip. Regulations on the fish will come and go. As they do our business will surely fluctuate, as it has. But if we can keep the pollock, I believe our business will stabilize over time. The party/charter fishing boats are still a great bargain to see the ocean and it's creatures in their wild state, have fun fishing and provide good protein for the family. I believe this outlet should always be available to the American public. But fishery management needs to be fair about it. So far, I don't believe that has been quite the case. Special fish like Aaron's are the kind of fish we like to see caught on the Bunny Clark .
