Plan For a Slam, A Georgia Bass Slam, In 2024

Wouldn’t you like a plan on how to make a Georgia Bass Slam happen for you? We got you.

Check out our newest fishing blog post contributed by Bass Slammer Jason McRae. Jason is the only angler to complete a Slam all 7 years it has been offered, and has caught all 10 bass species each year, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (GADNR WRD).

“It's often said, ‘the best time to go fishing is when you can,’ however, if your time and resources are limited, you can stack the odds in your favor by grouping species in categories so you can plan a trip to target specific species, stream or habitat,” says Jason McRae.

Anglers can get a Georgia Bass Slam by catching five of the ten black bass species found in Georgia: largemouth, smallmouth, shoal, Suwannee, spotted, redeye, Chattahoochee, Tallapoosa, Altamaha and Bartram’s.
