Grand Slam Miami Charters– 18' Boat

Grand Slam Miami Charters offers specialist inshore and flats fishing trips, delving deep into this shallow-water wonderland to do battle with hard-fighting gamefish just a stone’s throw from Miami. These waters are home to a huge range of species, from tasty Trout and Mangrove Snappers to hard-fighting Bonefish and huge Silver Kings.

In fact, the murky backcountry and sandy flats around Miami is home to every species on the IGFA’s inshore hit list. This means that an Inshore Grand Slam or even Super Grand Slam is a real possibility if you’re skilled and lucky enough. Captain Josh has been chasing these species for 20 years and knows how to put clients on the very best of each species.

You will be spending the day aboard an 18’ Gordon Waterman boat. This style of boat was specifically designed to dominate skinny waters. She has a cruising speed of over 35 knots to get you to the best fishing spots, and a silent trolling motor to make sure you don’t spook the fish when you get there. She was made in 2008, but don’t let the year trick you - it was not used up to now, so she is almost new and ready for adventures!

Captain Josh loves working with anglers of any skill, from seasoned pros to complete beginners. If you want to spend the whole day targeting one species, he will do everything he can to get you on a record-breaker. If you just want to catch some tasty fish and take in the scenery, he will make sure you head home with a trunkful of tasty fish!

All Grand Slam Miami Charters trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and fishing licenses for everyone onboard. Just bring your food, drinks, sunscreen, and shades, and get ready for some awesome flats and backcountry action.
