IGFA news: E.M. Kolassa – Colossus of the Inshore Grand Slam

Since its inception in October 1995, IGFA’s Inshore Grand Slam Club has by far been the most popular of all IGFA Special Clubs. The World Records department has received more than 350 applications from anglers around the world who have caught three of the four prized inshore species (snook bonefish, permit and tarpon) in one day. While many anglers have accomplished this feat, none have done it more frequently than Mr. E.M. “Mick” Kolassa who has racked up 19 Inshore Grand Slams since 2007 – recently adding three more after a trip to Central America. Clearly a believer in the old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, Kolassa has achieved each of his 19 Inshore Grand Slams while fishing the Belize River Lodge in western Belize. Congratulations, Mick, on four great years of angling and your three most recent Inshore Grand Slams!
