Robert James S.L.A.M. Celebrity Tournament
From Friday, September 11, 2020 to Sunday, September 13, 2020 September 11, 2020 September 13, 2020 Tranquility Bay
Anglers can target the “big three” game fish of the flats in the annual Robert-James Sales S.L.A.M. Fishing Tournament, scheduled Friday through Sunday, Sept. 11-13.
The catch-and-release event pits participating anglers against tarpon, permit and bonefish. Releasing all three species on the same day is called a “flats grand slam.”
The S.L.A.M. is the first in an annual Florida Keys autumn tournament series that benefits the fight against cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening chronic lung disease that is the United States’ leading genetic killer of children and young adults.
The series is supported by celebrities who often take part alongside other registered anglers. Celebrity competitors include Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs and former Denver Broncos football player Mark Cooper.
Anglers and teams earn points by catching and releasing fish in the tournament’s fly, spin/plug or general/bait categories. Awards are based on the most points accumulated representing all species of a slam.
