Rhode Island Hunting Spots
 
Hello Everyone, I am new to the sport of Spearfishing but am eager to learn all I can about it. I live in Rhode Island and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some spots. Being a complete rookie I would like to start with shallower water, 10-20' and I'm mostly looking to hunt Tautog. Thank you for all of your help and I look forward to your responses

anywhere along ocean drive is a good place to start, not the brenton side though.

This is a serious question and I know it's probably a dumb one, but we have sharks?

Yes, but you probably won't see them. Visibility is too bad usually.

One more thing, don't dive alone.
