How To Quickly Catch An Inshore Slam [New Exploration Trip Report]

I’m pleased to report that I had a fun trip out on the water this week while exploring some new waters in Tampa Bay to see how it fared from the red tide.

In the video below, you’ll see helpful tips for quickly catching redfish, snook, and seatrout on a short morning trip.

Plus, you’ll see some cool topwater redfish strikes, lots of pushes, and some fun drone shots.

The entire trip was documented so that you can use the same strategies in your area.

Equipment Used

Here’s a list of the equipment that I was using on this trip:


This is another example of the fact that using artificial lures can be a big advantage when fishing in new waters since they enable you to cover water more quickly.

It was just 3 hours from launching the boat and getting back to the ramp, so I had to move fast in order to first find some fish (#1 most important task). And then I just stuck with a few lures that I trust for getting strikes to end up completing the goal of catching a an inshore slam.

The strategies shown in the video above are described in detail in the Insider Report from this trip in which you can see exactly what spots were holding the most fish as well as the tidal cycle that is best.

what was the split grip you were using. The butt looked shorter ( which I like) than the rods noted in the report

Not sure what you shot this with, but it’s one of the cleanest crystal clear videos you’ve produced. They’re all excellent, but this one stands out. Really nice job!
