Both fish were caught on our last trip of the season, the November 6, marathon trip, the latest we have ended the Bunny Clark season since the Bunny Clark fishing season.
The shot on the left is a digital image of Jim Feeney MA holding his 3 pound whiting. The shot on the right is a digital image of Don Johnson MA holding his 3. Both fish were caught within a few minutes of each other.
Don's whiting is tied for the sixth largest whiting of the Bunny Clark fishing season while Jim's whiting is the eighth largest whiting caught on the Bunny Clark this year. Interestingly enough, my son, Micah, brought a trophy whiting over 3 pounds to the surface a short while later, only to have it drop off the hook and swim back to bottom.
This after Ally Fuehrer ME almost boated the largest whiting of the day est. Ally's fish was a couple feet from being boated.
She had snagged her fish in the side. All this happened right around dawn. The Bunny Clark has landed five trophy whiting from 4. There was no wind on the ride to the fishing grounds.
But there was no spray to speak of and I was able to run at full cruising speed from Perkins Cove to our first fishing spot. The sky was mostly cloudy with some clear spots showing stars. That turned out to be the highest air temperature of the trip.
On the fishing grounds, the wind was very light from the south when we first arrived. Within a half hour that wind was gone, leaving us with a calm ocean surface.
A short while later, the wind blew lightly out of the north. Those first two hours showed us a sky that was thinly covered with clouds leaving many clear blue patches. As the day progressed, the sky became more cloud covered.
It rained lightly for the rest of the day. At about that time, the wind started to blow more than the one or two knots we had been experiencing until that point.
But the wind never blew more than five knots until 2: The wind direction had been established from the north northeast at Half way home, the wind finally hauled out of the northeast. We never had any wind of ten knots or greater.
The tide current was light to moderate. The visibility ranged from seven to fifteen miles. The surface water temperature reached a high of The fishing conditions were excellent. There were no dogfish, the ocean was flat calm, the current was almost nothing and the air temperature was mild.
The catching was good. Landings were fair until the last spot, giving us a category of good for the day.
Most legal fish landed were pollock, by far. Legal landings also included three haddock, one redfish, one cunner, one whiting, six cusk and fifteen hake. Released fish included a 9 pound cod, two sub-legal cod, one sub-legal pollock, a sub redfish, six small haddock and a dogfish.
We drift fished most of the day. I anchored three times. Jigs and cod flies were used. We brought bait clams but no one used them. They keep their fish together so it was impossible to tell anyway. Ray won the boat pool for the largest fish with the largest fish, a I took a picture of Ray with his big hake.The Bering wolffish species has an inconsistent distribution.

Ray and I went out to try and find some salmon but instead we found something called a Wolf Fish vs Wolf Eel. We fished a few hours in the Seldovia area of Kachemak Bay for salmon and didn’t get a bite so decided we would go find some halibut.
