Below is a rundown of the full list of saltwater fishing slams that have been created and recognized over the years.

Now keep in mind that the proper “nomenclature” when talking about fishing slams is as follows:

Any three fish caught in a single day by a single angler is considered a “Grand Slam” (aka a “Slam”)
Any four fish caught in a single day by a single angler is considered a “Super Grand Slam” (aka “Super Slam”)
Fish do NOT have to be kept or killed in order to complete any slam.
I have broken it down in between the following three saltwater categories:

  • Inshore Fishing Slams
  • Offshore Fishing Slams
  • Miscellaneous Saltwater Fishing Slams

Note: If you see any that we missed, please leave them in the comment section so we can add them.
