Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine

Southern Head Reef .-The chain of reefs extending S. from White Head Island is all good ground in summer for cod and for pollock, also. when the herring schools are on this ground. Currents are very heavy here.

The ledges that make up this reef are more or less connected. Among these are Brazil Shoal, Tinker, Inner Diamond, Outer Diamond, Crawleys, Rans, Proprietor (Foul Ground), and the Old Proprietor. While virtually all this reef is pollock ground, Crawleys and Rans perhaps furnish the best fishing.
