Inshore Grand Slam – The Crown Jewel of the Saltwater Flats

Belize Permit Fishing

Of all the the Caribbean fly fishing opportunities, the inshore grand slam is one of the most challenging and unique scenarios to achieve.

The Caribbean will have grand slam opportunities year-round depending upon where you fish.

Some areas will provide a diversity of species throughout all twelve months of the year, while others in the region will provide opportunities within only specific months of the year. Talking with Outdoors International can help you figure out the best flats fishing locations to pursue when you decide to plan your trip. Besides the planning aspect, if a grand slam is a goal, the biggest step anyone should take to prepare is to practice casting.

The Inshore Grand Slam

Any combination of the following three fish in a single day constitute an IGFA certified Inshore Grand Slam.  If you catch all four of these inshore game fish in a day, it is considered an Inshore Super Grand Slam.

Kent Goodman is no stranger to the Inshore Grand Slam.

This is a wonderful fishery that is often overlooked by many guides in the area.

*You do not have to keep, weigh or kill a fish in order to qualify for an Inshore Grand Slam like you would for a world record. All you need to do is take a picture with the angler and the contact information of the captain, guide or other witness.
