The Grove SLAM!

Fishing… and more!

It’s no wonder why people call it the “world’s funnest fishing tournament.” And yes, we know funnest is not a word.

Since 2002 The Grove SLAM! set out to be the most non-tournament tournament in Miami. Last year we took a year off to regroup and think about how we can take the SLAM! to another level. And we came up with a 3-fold plan.

What’s New?

1

FREE. You heard right. The Grove SLAM! is now free, gratis, zippo to participate.

2

In the heart of Miami. The Grove SLAM!’s new location on the Miami River is like no other with 700-feet of dock space. More than any other location we’ve ever used.

What you love is still here. The great parties. The boat wash girls. DJ Laz and the bikini contest. The Grove SLAM! sticks to its roots where it counts.
