Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Monhegan Southeast Ground. This ground lies SE from Monhegan Island, the center distant 12 miles. This is nearly circular, 3 miles in diameter. The bottom is so broken that depths may vary much within a short distance, but depths are from 35 to 75 fathoms over a bottom of rocks, gravel and mud. Fishing is by trawl and handline.

It is good cod ground from April to July; haddock are taken in December and hake in summer on the edges in 50 to 60 fathoms.
