Here in Northeast Florida, a slam indicates you were able to successfully land 3 different species of saltwater inshore fish. Typically a “slam” in Florida constitutes a redfish, spotted sea trout, and a flounder. We’ve added a recipe for each species of fish for the NE Florida “slam”, simply dubbed a Slammin Recipe for the next time you pick up a slam on a kayak fishing trip.Cajun Blackened Redfish
