Grand Slam Charters – 23'

Pigeon Point Beach
Crown Point, Trinidad and Tobago

Are you ready to try your hand at the inshore Grand Slam? Here is a great opportunity to target the 4 species that make up this collection of awesome game fish. You’ll test your skills and have a great time doing so.

You’ll spend the day with Captain Kester Herbert. With decades of experience under his belt, he knows where to go to give you the best chance of achieving your grand slam. For those that just want to fish in these incredible waters without going after the inshore slam, that’s completely fine too! There is something for everybody. 

Step on board his 23’ custom flats boat. You and 2 fishing friends will have enough space to fish comfortably at the same time. This boat has a 130 HP Yamaha engine, which will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. The fishfinder and Capt. Kester’s extensive knowledge will do the rest, keeping you on top of the fish throughout your trip.

You’ll be targeting Snook, Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, and even a Jack Crevalle or two. If you’re not going after the slam, then these are still great fish to target. Tarpon is notorious for breaking free in over 60% of cases, so to reel the Silver King in is a big accomplishment – you’ll definitely have bragging rights after that!

All rods and reels are included, and are top quality Penn and Shimano. You are more than welcome to bring along your own lucky rod along. You can also bring along food and drink – you’ll need to keep your energy up. Toddlers and babies are not allowed on this trip, but children who can hold a rod are welcome.

Over the years running these charters, Capt. Kester has had 15 people achieve the Grand Slam on fly fishing and 22 so far on spinning gear. There have been 3 double Grand Slam in a 1/2 day trip – you never know what bite, so come and try your luck!

There is no better time to book. Achieve your fishing dreams today!

About the Captain

Kester Herbert
Crown Point, Trinidad and Tobago
Member since August 2015

I'm a quiet 43 year-old resident of Tobago with lots of fishing experience. Fishing is something I have always done – when I was a lad, it kept getting me in trouble with my mother, because I always ran away to fish! Fortunately, I have now made fishing my profession. It's all about being on the water having fun and making sure that my customers are happy at the end of their fishing day.
