Tightlined Slam - Eastern Long Island Sound


The Tightlined Slam - both Western Sound (weekend of 10/13) and Eastern Sound(weekend of 9/29) - are catch-and-release tournaments run by the Tightlined Conservation Coalition that contribute proceeds directly to conservation while awarding prizes to top anglers in pre-determined categories - see The Fishing for more details. The 2023 Tightlined Slam once again proudly supports The American Saltwater Guides Association, which was created to activate and unite guides, small business owners and like-minded anglers, and to represent them and their voice at the federal, regional and state level.

The 2023 Tightlined Slam will also be supporting Save A Million Bass (SAMB), a project that shares our goal of educating and activating the recreational angling community around conservation and how to best treat and build our fishery resources. Using the latest technology, SAMB looks to educate anglers about rules and regulations and the best catch and release techniques. Using QR Codes placed on stickers and digital tags, SAMB is able to do what has seldom been done in saltwater fishing - educate anglers directly before they cast a line. The idea for Save A Million Bass comes from a recognition that catch and release is only a start and that better techniques are needed to reduce the mortality of released fish. It also fills a vital gap in conservation efforts, using technology to educate the fishing community about the latest regulations and techniques.
