Young Blood from RI

Hi...I've been lurking around this forum for awhile and figured it was time to join up. I'm a 23 year old student/bartender from Narragansett. I grew up in Montauk surfcasting with my grandfather before moving to RI when I was 8. Any knowledge I was able to retain was quickly forgotten. Other than the occasional trip back to LI boatfishing with my family or surfcasting M, fishing was far from a big part of my life. Over the last 2 seasons, I've been dedicated to surfcasting the RI shore and learning as much as I can. I'm able to get out a lot, but not nearly as much as I want. With the spring season just about here, I'm full of excitement and as ready as I'll ever be. Good luck to everybody out there...tight lines!

Harp - welcome to S-B. Good location to fish from, Gansett. No fish there

There is a great local fishing club to check out: http://narragansettsurfcasters.com/ more than a few people here are members. Meeting next Tuesday night.

You are in a great place to get back into it! Im a young dude as well, but spend most of the spring in the bay... july and august I head down your way more often.

If you ever want to meet up and fish, let me know... none of my friends fish, so I am always looking for a fishin buddy...

plus if you are a bartender, perhaps a few on the house!

tight lines

Also live in gansett. Ive been cooking in restaurants for 12+ years. I do the same when i get out of work, but not till ussally after 1am.. Thats the best thing for me, after cooking for 3-500+ im really wired and cant sleep. Id rather go unwind making some casts then s#^&#^&#^&#^&#^&g down loads of beer! No fish in gansett, all the fish are up the bay with the bunker..
