Fly Fishing Charlotte Harbor Captain Rex. In this video Rex gets what is sometimes referred to as the back country slam on the fly! Although unofficial it is official for fun’s sake.
Although FWC has changed the rules and the species (to get more species involved) some anglers still consider this an “off the record” accomplishment.
- Red drum
- Spotted seatrout
- Flounder (such as Gulf flounder, Southern flounder)
A Grand Slam is defined as the catch or catching and releasing of three specific saltwater fish species in a 24-hour period. The FWC updated the program in 2014 by creating nine Grand Slams, including a Small Fry Slam for children age 15 and under.
Successful anglers receive a certificate signed by the Director of FWC Marine Fisheries Management as well as a colorful t-shirt in recognition of their achievement. Recipients will also be listed in the Saltwater Recreational Fishing Regulations booklet and on the Club Members page. Anglers who are awarded at least three different Grand Slams will be recognized for Grand Slam Club Recognition Tiers for the opportunity to receive additional prizes.
