How about one of each on the same day?

Now that would be a grand slam
I've had a couple good multi-species days (largemouth bass, rock bass, yellow perch, bluegill, pumpkinseed, chain pickerel & crappie) and it got me wondering what would be considered a "slam" or "grand slam" in freshwater. Seems like a grand slam would have to include at least one type of trout. Then again, most trout are stocked so maybe that isn't so important? Is there a standard "definition" for freshwater slams and grand slams like there is with saltwater?

Q

p.s., on one occasion all types of fish were caught on the same olive wooly bugger!
