Official ruling needed

Well i refuse to let a little thing like pnumonia stop me, so loaded up on meds and went fishing. First stop was WW with the boat. The Albies weren`t crashing but just leisurly cruising and eating. Then it slowed for a while, then about 9:30 a big blitz between the wall and Deep Hole. Final tally for a short morning, 3 albies and 2 blues. Yanked the boat, grabbed the wife and took a ride to the Den where Scott rewound a line so I could use my new outfit. Then on to the Canal. My wife left me at the Mud Flats and took off shopping for a couple hours. A nice late afternoon bite, 1 albie and 6 bass in 2 hours. Finally broke the 3 fish barrier!
What I want to know is, Is it still a Slam if you fish 2 states and a hundred miles apart? Never got a Slam before, would sure like to count this one. Awaiting the official ruling after review.

Thumbs up

Sounds good by me Steve!

I've heard of guys down in the Bahamas covering a lot of miles and hours between hookups on Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit to claim a grand-slam.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you

Seems to me that it is an Official Nearside/Middleside Slam Glad to hear that those Bass showed up at the Albie spot near sundown Broke thru the 3 Albie per day curse,too . You might want to save some gas money next week...there are Blues at the East end of the ditch

It only counts if my snagged dead albie at the WW counts.
