Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Outer Horse Reef This is a short distance SW. from the Inner Reef, with only a narrow gully between. The small shoal falls off rapidly on all sides. It has a depths of 30 fathoms. Over a space 1/4 mile in diameter the bottom is gravelly.

Seasons and species are as on Inner Horse Reef. (ln spring and fall this is a good cod ground. Hake are found close to the edge in summer. Fishing is by small craft, generally. using trawl and handline. It is a good lobster ground.)
