Inshore Slam Completed!

Trip Info


Got a call from a regular customer who asked if I could accommodate her and her grandson on an afternoon fishing/boating trip. I told her we could do that and better. We had the end of the incoming tide and beginning of the outgoing tide. This would present us with a great opportunity to target snook, redfish and trout.

We met at 1pm and took a little boat ride and arrivied at a small flat that has been holding fat trout and nice redfish. We fished this area for no less than 10 minutes before we hook a nice 19” trout. We barely get this fish released before we hook into a big over slot redfish that measured over 28”! We land a few more nice trout before the outgoing tide stops.

We take another ride to a secret deep water trough that redfish and snook have been hiding in during recent low tides. We arrive at the trough and almost immediately start hooking snook, we catch 5 or 6 snook and then catch another nice 25” redfish.  We reposition the boat to take advantage of the higher water and continue to catch snook, trout and redfish for the next hour.

We end up with over 40 snook, 10 trout and 4 redfish. On our ride back to the boat ramp my client complains of a sore wrist from all the fish she caught, but says her 4 inshore slams more than makes up for it!
