I have been on many fishing charters (head boats), and this one was the worst :( Some things you expect on a charter, there are a lot of people, lines get caught up, that is normal. Expected. I was not expecting the understaffed boat (staff consisted of two teenage boys and the captain) to be so unprofessional and messy. When... More

Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge about the areas to fish in the region, but he is a hard working individual who is willing to get out... More

Weather was bad, crew did not introduce themselves, deck mate smoked the whole time, the fumes off the boat were enough to make anyone sick, took our drinks and put them away and didn't even let us know where the cooler was with our stuff, we had to ask where the restroom was. We didn't catch any fish. We asked... More

We had a trip booked 6 months in advanced knowing how busy Bud N' Mary's can be. The first day we went backcountry fishing with an extremely knowledgable captain. We fished the waters in the everglades national park and caught many fish and sharks. Not only did we learn about fishing in the back bay, but were were taught many... More

Our son who is an avid fisherman researched for months where he would like to go for his 16th birthday trip. After hours of research he decided on tarpon fishing with Captain Rick at Bud and Mary's in Islamorada, FL. We booked one 1/2 day and one full day trip with Captain Rick. Overall our son caught 5 75+ lbs... More
