I am new to the forum but have been putting in time all over Aquidneck Island for the last year. Well, my kit, the tides and planets lined up very early this morning. Once I heard the seagulls and splashing I knew I was in the right place. I caught a fiesty 25"-er on a black slug-o on the first cast. What a rush! I now believe all posts about the dangers of landing those guys on rocks. I almost broke my a** a couple of times once I got em out of the water. Thanks to the guys in the noobie thread for providing basic guidance. I did learn to scope out spots, be careful what you ask people and most of all LISTEN and watch. A good tackle shop doesn't hurt either. My time is limited in this area and I am still hunting for a keeper from the shore or in my kayak. What a great sport.
