Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Phelps Bank .- This bank lies 38 miles SE, S. from Sankaty Head Light and agrees more or less in size, shape, trend, and character of the bottom with Fishing Rip. Depths are from 10 to 17 fathoms. On the southeast edge of this lies Rogers Fishing Ground, with 24 to 40 fathoms over fine gray sand.

It is perhaps mainly a haddock ground.
