    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting

    Newport RI

    After suffering through the red tide for 2 weeks in Siesta Key last year, we are going this year to Newport RI.
    We were there years ago and I remember the cliff walk and a few small beaches on the bay. Lots of history in the area. Has anyone detected on the island ? Any restrictions? I understand the water is colder than Florida even in June and the back yard of " Marble House " may be off limits. Thanks for any advice, Tek

    I love the rain. A day without rain is like a day without sunshine I always say.

    Used to hunt there for yrs - lot of hunters hit there now - If you can get some permissions on land
    you may get some goodies - most the parks been hammered - in summer beaches always hold fresh
    drops but lot of regular hunters so timing and luck are a factor

    The warmest Newport waters ever get - are usually colder still than yours ever get
    I advise you to bring a wet suit or a dive jacket if you are going to hunt in the water
    especially if you are a Fla. native

    you should not have to worry about red tide in june - but there are a few spots in Newport at the height of the summer heat (usually
    July-Aug)- that get red tide also

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Wow, thanks for all the info. I'll bring a skin for the water. Love the older coins and that buckle is amazing.
    I saw people jumping from the rocks on the cliff walk into the water. Do you think the water around those cliff areas can be hunted safely?
    Any good Italian restaurants?

    Thanks again Casper

    How long are you thinking of being up there?
    Remember to drop me a line before you do - very possible we can hook up
    Narragansett and Scarborough beaches are not to far away and are big beaches
    few sample finds from Narragansett - funny thing is I only go there 1 or 2 times a year
    place gets hit daily by retired locals but I have gotten a necklace or 2 almost every trip
    there - I always shocked what others have missed there - I think its a lot of luck and timing
    right spot at right time

    3 of my Newport favs
    Coddington Brewing Company: Newport County's First Brewpub & Restaurant
    make their own beer - real good food (my opinion - best clam chowder)
    - nice inside - I know the owner
    348redparrot
    in the wharf center - great food - nice atmosphere
    https://www.blackpearlnewport.com/get-a-quote/
    on the wharf -it is split into to two - tavern side and 5 star side - if you want to take the wife for real nice dinner
    tavern side great for lunch - they have award winning chowder
