Fishing Grounds of the Gulf of Maine.

White Head Grounds Depths on the shoal (the White Hub: Bring Budd cottage out by White Head, Black Head. and Allens Island touching) are 7 fathoms, thence to 20 fathoms on the edges about it. This ground extends NE. and SW., 2 miles long by 1/4 mile wide. The bottom is chiefly broken, of rocks, and with spots of coarse gravel and sand.

Fish and their seasons are as on Franklin Ground.

Marks: Bring Black Head, White Head, and Gull Head in range on the east side of Monhegan Island.
