    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    I am quite confident there are far better places.

    And as to the *real* answer... To catch a slam...you actually have to fish specifically for...a slam. You have to be willing to walk away from an off the hook Trout bite...or Snook bite..or Red bite...to move on with the game. Easy if you have every day to fish...but not easy for a guy who gets a day here and there.
    You also cannot worry about failure...because that is part of the game which makes it a challenge.


    I have said this many times...it is really just a "trick"... Once you have a few things mastered and figured out...It is relatively easy.....so easy an old man can do it.

    As far as location...Generally, south of Crystal river since snook are less common north of that....
    and not much further south than Jensen/Hobe sound on the east coast due to less Redfish....and not much North of Daytona due to less snook.

    If I thought you wanted to factor in the seasons ...I would say SW Florida is top spot.....Never really cold enough except on rare winter days to shut the bite off completely.

    If you are in the river...then think slower presentation....their under slung inferior mouth is made to feed on the bottom.
    When you start locating Redfish "spots"...you will find the fish will be in that same general area over time....

    Keep at it...it will get easier.

    Up here Snook = Flounder & my dock is a pretty good place ;)
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' / 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons or Limits
