Ed Wettach and his wife Eleanor fished for bonefish, permit and tarpon coming up with all three to complete the flats slam. Ed did the fishing while Eleanor critiqued his casting and constantly had to remind him to keep his bait in the water. HaHa! Fortunately, Ed was able to catch this 27 inch baby tarpon,

and finally this 4 lb bonefish. Sweet redemption!

Biscayne Bay Fishing Forecast:

The best part of summer in South Florida is that there is always a good chance of catching a flats grand slam. July and August are the best months to accomplish this goal.

Target Species:

bonefish, permit, tarpon, sharks

More Fishing Reports:


I specialize in both fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and shark. My area of guiding expertise extends from the northern reaches of the Florida Keys to Miamiís Biscayne Bay and the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. Depending on your preference, Key Biscayne in Miami gives the angler the best opportunity to catch a variety of species, whereas in Fort Lauderdale, the focus is more on live baiting for tarpon, snook, jack crevalle and barracuda.
