What is an Inshore Slam?

The Inshore Slam is a fishing challenge where anglers attempt to catch three or more inshore species consisting of Atlantic bonefish, Atlantic cubera snapper, Atlantic snook, tarpon, permit, Pacific snook, Pacific bonefish, Pacific cubera snapper, snubnose pompano, giant trevally, roosterfish, bluefin trevally, and milkfish in the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific is home to eight species while the Atlantic only has five. The Pacific may seem like an easy choice but these fish are spread out across different migration patterns from western Africa passed Hawaii to Central America. Some of the best places to accomplish the inshore slam are Hawaii, Cabo San Lucas, or Africa in the Pacific and the Florida Keys or Bahamas in the Atlantic.
