Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Harris Ground. from 15 miles S W from Monhegan island to 6 miles SSW. It has 40 to 50 fathoms over a bottom of sharp rocks and mud - a "blistery" bottom.

Cod, cusk and hake are found here the year around. Halibut are here in June, July and August. Fishing is by trawling and hand lining, with very little gillnetting.
