Got a lot closer today. Got the bone and the permit on an outgoing tide in ankle deep water just north of us. I ended up paddling all three lagoons behind our place chasing tarpon. Got one strike, but he came right off, and I saw one other that I didn't get a shot at. I did take some video of the mangrove tunnel between lagoons here. A lot of stuff has to go right for a grand slam to happen. I wonder how long this is going to take ;)
