This photograph shows the dock at Head Harbor and Gooden Grant’s workshop with his boat healed over for cleaning. The white door on the right is where Gooden stored bait. Because it was dug out of a hill, it never got warm on the hottest days. Any fisherman could be envious of that.
Flounders used to be numerous, and small ones were used for bait. When the eel grass died off, the flounders disappeared. The fishermen then seined for herring to use for bait.
