Fished with Darryl, Jim, and John last Saturday in Islamorada. Darryl is an Islamorada regular with me and has caught permit and tarpon with me. On Saturday he caught his fish bonefish so now he has caught and released all of the big three fishing with me. We came across a nice school of bonefish and Darryl made a nice presentation and caught his first bonefish. Pro Tip: A "grand slam" is catching the big three gamefish in a single day. Catching a bonefish, tarpon, and permit in a single day is quite a feat. That feat was accomplished on my boat last December when Shane Duffy did it with me in late December.
