Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Seguin Hub. This lies SSE. 5 miles from Seguin Light. There is a collection of half a dozen small hummocks rising from the 65 or 70 fathoms of the surrounding muddy bottom to 30 or 35 fathoms of rocky bottom. These are hand-line spots.

Species and seasons are as on Seguin Ground, except that a great proportion of hake are taken here on mud from 60 fathoms down. It is a cod ground in spring and summer.

Marks: Hunnewell Point Woods on Seguin; Damariscotta Hill over Damariscove Island.
