The Bunny Clark

The Bunny Clark is a forty foot fiberglass deep sea fishing boat built in 1983 and specially designed to carry passengers with speed, comfort and stability. She is powered by a Roger Penske 8V-92TA diesel (New in 1993) which delivers 650 horsepower and is insulated to reduce noise. A spacious bathroom is located forward for your convenience. The deck area is equipped with rod holders and seating for everyone with ample space for your coolers and belongings. A large canopy covers most of the deck to protect from rain or spray. Trophy sized fish, like the 52 pound cod Fred Kunz caught on June 3, 1995 (pictured above), are some of the fish we like to target.

Safety Features

The Bunny Clark has modern navigational and lifesaving equipment. She is equipped with two 36 mile radars, an automatic Loran C position indicator, Global Positioning System (GPS) position indicator, color fish finder, paper recording fish finder, cellular phone (emergencies only) and various radios. Lifesaving equipment includes lifepreservers, life rafts, search and rescue lights and much more. The Bunny Clark exceeds the rigid U.S. Coast Guard safety standards and is inspected and certified for offshore work to 100 miles.


The fishing is mostly bottom fishing for cod, pollock, halibut, haddock, hake, cusk and wolffish. Anglers may use bait or jigs. The bait is Maine shrimp, surf clams or mackerel. We usually drift fish. However, we will anchor when anchoring is more productive. When you catch your fish the crew will be there to gaff and land it for you. During the fishing trip, the mate will prepare or fillet your fish if you desire. We provide small plastic freezer bags with the fillets at no extra charge. Gratuities are accepted.

Fishing Equipment

The fishing equipment is mostly custom made:

Fishing Guests

Guests fishing on the Bunny Clark are not required to bring any fishing equipment as rods and reels, bait, various jigs and teasers are all provided at no extra charge. However, guests are responsible for lost gear. Persons may sit and fish with bait or stand and jig. All that is needed to enjoy a day of fishing is a warm sweater and lunch. Beer is permitted (6 bottles/person max.) but bottles can't be opened until the boat is offshore. Intoxication will not be tolerated and hard liquor is prohibited.

Please Take Notice:

To insure a day of fishing, a reservation should be made by calling (207)646-2214. Guests should arrive one hour before departure. Payment in full required for a reservation.

Map of Ogunquit & Bunny Clark Location

The Bunny Clark departs from
Barnacle Billy's dock in the morning and departs from the Town dock (about 75 yards due east) for the afternoon half day trip. Before or after a fishing trip, anglers have the unique opportunity of dining on sumptuous sea food & lobster in a casual atmosphere at Barnacle Billy's or Barnacle Billy's etc. restaurants, enjoying the scenic coast via the (mile long) marginal way walk or having a refreshing swim from Ogunquit's beautiful white sand beachs.

Bunny Clark Special Features:
