In Rhode Island?! That's awesome. Do you know if there's anywhere to see them in Connecticut?

Hi,
According to my Peterson Guide (and others), they are the most common squid between Cape Cod, MA and Cape Hatteras, NC. So I'm sure they can be found in CT, but specifically where I don't know, I would ask a local fisherman. I know locally (near Galilee, RI) they've been catching quite a bit just off shore this year. These are the guys you eat or use for bait (a waste). It was somewhat unusual to see them in Potter Pond (a saltwater tidal pond), although I have seen them here before, just was never able to get photos until yesterday.
