Grand Slams challenge anglers to catch three specified fish species in a 24-hour period. The FWC updated the program in 2014 by creating nine Grand Slams including a Small Fry Slam for children age 15 and under.  FWC encourages responsible angling. Remember proper catch-and-release techniques when fishing. Anglers do not have to harvest their fish to be eligible, and are encouraged to release catches alive.
