Great little place to get some food and necessities before a day of fishing! We went fishing with Boned Up Charters for the day and we got out breakfast and lunch from Bud n' Mary's before we left. Very good prices and very good food. Also had a clean restroom to use!

Bud and Mary's Marina supports the Sport Fishing Fleet at the southern tip of Islamarada. The gift shop is refreshing after a long day on the water or for breakfast prior to departing. Get there early as the line can get long first thing in the morning. There is plenty of parking and the Tarpon truly like the remenants of... More

Spent a long bachelor party weekend with a trip out of B and M's. Good te with a Capt who worked hard to accommodate our large group. Good fishing and great weather made our trip great.

I've done this trip a lot of times, and it is usually great, but this time, we had a young crew that did not seem to know how to manage the old timers who were hogging the back of the boat. I pretty much caught nothing, while they pulled in fish after fish and never thought to share some space.... More

My family did a half day charter with Captain Raymond and first mate Justin on the Reel McCoy. The boat and equipment were top notch and we caught a boatload of yellow tail snapper and a Mahi. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Great experience and we hope to fish with them again in the future.

I booked two days fishing with a friend. The main target was Redfish. The info on the website suggests that Redfish is abundant in the Back Country and easy to catch. The captain we had the first day. Al Polofski, wanted to fish Tarpon on the ocean side because he couldn't spot Redfish due to the cloudy conditions and the... More

Myself and two friends enjoyed two great fishing trips last year. Our charter captains convinced us to make the trip down from Boston again this year. After arriving at bud and marys for our 7 am Saturday morning fishing trip we met our captain who was clearly frustrated about there being no bait available for our trip. So off we... More

3 days of Tarpon fishing with Rick Stanczyk. Rick is a consummate professional and fantastic guide. One day we had 15 Tarpon hooked and landed 5. Our experience was off the charts in terms of Rick putting us in position to catch fish. His equipment is first class and I can't imagine fishing anywhere but Bud N Mary's. Caught my... More
