Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine
Bantam. This ground lies off Seguin 6 miles E. by N. It has a bottom of rocky broken ground. There is a buoy in the center over a reef that is said to break at low water. Elsewhere depths range from 14 to 20 fathoms. The shoal is about 2 miles long in a NE. and SW. direction and is about 1 mile wide.
This is a cod and haddock ground in the spring, and bake are plentiful in summer on the edges of the ground.
