2021 ABC Saltwater Slam
April 21 and April 22, 2021

Thank you for joining us for our 4th Annual ABC Saltwater Slam tournament benefiting Coastal Conservation Association of Florida. Your support is greatly appreciated, and we are excited for another memorable event.

Below you will find the itinerary and additional details you will want to know about so please read thoroughly.

Boats have assigned numbers. Please make sure you know your boat number as times of departure vary each day based on it. Each boat will have three anglers, however the team you are fishing with to try to win the Grand Slam trophy and bragging rights is done via a random draw thru iAngler which will be shown on the TV’s at the rooftop bar Wednesday evening. This means your boat mates are technically your competition...be nice to them anyway. We are fishing for snook, red and trout.
