Just got back from a 5 day trip - stayed at a great small hotel in Cancun and fished up around Isla Blanca for baby tarpon, permit and bones - Went with Bill Kiene with a total of 6 guys who all pretty much knew each other - a really great trip. Two had grand slams during the week and we all had multiple opportunities at slams each day. Fishing was much better than catching but if it were easy we would all take up golf!! There were incredible numbers of permit and lots of tarpon and fewer bones

A guy a couple of weeks previous on his first salt water trip had a grand slam the first day and a super grand slam the second. He wrote an incredible statement in the hotel journal: "Permit work the mind.. but Tarpon bring out the heart of the child."
