“Best fishing experience ever!”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

My wife surprised me for my birthday with a half-day fishing trip with Grand Slam - what an awesome choice she made! First, the owner picked us up from the hotel and got to the marina on time. The boat was prepped and ready to go. After 20 min we were already out of the marina and past the breakers... with 6 people on the boat I had a mild concern whether everyone would have a chance to catch something given that it was only a half day trip. Boy was I wrong! With 7 lines fishing there was hardly a dull moment. I admit I was lucky to be the one who reeled the 48 pounder in... however the credit really goes to the most knowledgeable crew and captain. If you ever want to spend a day fishing I can HIGHLY recommend Grand Slam Charters. You will have an awesome time... and when you return, the crew will help you fillet your catch and you can take it to one of the restaurants on the marina where for a few $ they will cook it for you - the freshest fish you can possibly have!

“My birthday trip with Grand Slam?”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I spent my birthday with the crew and quite nicely the owners of the vessel decided to attend this charter as well. What genuine nice people they are.
We set out on a perfect day, light winds, clear skies, I could just sense the bite was going to be on today, everything was looking great.
We took the very short ride 10 mins to the (edge,) the edge is the shelve where the blue water begins , and where the fish prey the waters.
It wasn't long before we had some nice fish in the box, on ice,Wahoo, and we had a run with an extremely large yellow fin Tuna, that the fish won this time, but not for lack of effort from the crew,,
The sun was beaming the crew was great, the owners where so nice, and we wrapped up a great half day trip with me in the chair landing a 50 plus inch 40 pound Wahoo that was one amazing fight, and was such a beauty of a way to spend my birthday, surely was a memorable day, and the fresh fish I've been eating for he last 3/4 days and nights has been priceless..
The crew has great gear, all around from tackle to rods and reels they are ready for all that lurks..in the Turks..
Enjoy!! Grand Slam Charters I surely did,

“Great day on the water”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

I have fished all over the US and Carribean and have never had such a professional and enjoyable crew as our day on Grand Slam Charter's Hatteras Sportfish "Gwendolyn". First of all Gwendolyn has a spacious cockpit and seating area (shaded) which made our trip much more comfortable. The captain and crew did and excellent job of making us at home and giving us an orientation on how we would be fishing that day. Within a few minutes of having the baits in the spread we were on fish and the melee began. For the next several hours the fishing was fast anf furios. We caught all the fish we could eat and more for the crew. We were happy to share. We will book far in advance next time because as words gets out they will be much busier than their competition on the Island.

“Phenomenal Fishing”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This was a first rate experience! I initially sent an email and received a response from Andrea within 10 minutes. We booked our trip and arrived at the Marina where we were greeted by Geoff and the crew. The entire crew, especially the young and knowledgeable captain were an absolute pleasure. We no sooner arrived to our destination when we had 4 Wahoo hit 6 lines. It was the kind of chaos that a fisherman lives for. After landing the Wahoo, we headed to an area that the Captain felt would produce BlackFin Tuna. His prophecy was right on and 3 BlackFin Tuna later we again headed out for a quick run at some Mahi Mahi before settling in for some Shark fishing. Whithin 10 minutes we landed a nice Mahi! The Shark fishing was no dissapointment, 7 Bulls and a reef Shark later (all of which we released) we headed back to the Marina. What a day (or shall I say 1/2 day). We all agreed that this was by far the best fishing trip we had ever been on and we have done no less than a couple of dozen of them!

“Great Day”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The trip my family and I booked on the Gwendolyn went well beyond my expectations.
Although my son (who is 11) had been out deep sea fishing 5 times, my 2 girls (15,16) and wife had never been. I spent plenty of time telling them that 4 fish would be a good day on the sea when going for game fish. The crew of the Gwendolyn put us on 30+ fish. It was unbelievable with the following totals: 22 Wahoo (If you count the 2 wahoo that were lost at the boat by Marvin)...just kidding Marvin I know it was probably my fault: 2 Mahi Mahi and one Sailfish...+6-8 that were lost in battle or on quick strikes. I know this amount of fish is not to be expected and that is why I booked the Gwendolyn in order to have a boat where my 15 & 16 year old girls and wife could have plenty of room to sun bath. My 16 year old spent 3 hrs "laying" out on the front of the boat and Capt'n Codney made sure she didn't fall off and become shark bait. I know a lot of you think of deep sea fishing as a "guys" trip but it was an outstanding family trip that we would suggest to any family looking for a great time while visiting the Turks and Caicos. They even had flowers and a shirt waiting for my 15 year old, as it was her b-day, when we returned to the marina. I will definitely return for another fishing adventure and have a great time whether or not we catch fish. Robert K.....Johnston, IA
