Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Black Ledges Ground This ground lies between Jordan's Delight and the Halibut Ledges, or Black Ledges.

It is a good haddock ground for a brief season in the spring and early summer when the fish are following the herring schools. In general it is a small-boat ground on which chiefly hand lines and trawls are operated. A few cod and cusk are taken here In the fall, and it is a good lobster ground.
