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

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

One more thing, don't dive alone.

Re: Rhode Island Hunting Spots

Weekapaug cove is a great spot to dive from . Thats where I learned from mostly and I saw a ton of different things while diving there like puffer fish ,pilot fish schools of menhaden, lobsters, skate and the usual game fish .
