The Cross Seamount is SW of the island of Hawaii at approximately 1840' N latitude and 15810' W longitude, about equidistant from Honolulu and Kona. It is charted to a depth of 330 meters. Weather buoys 1, 2, 3, and 4 are also sites of occasionally high catch rates.

All of the material relating to the development and productivity of the offshor handline fishery is taken from:
