Great 1/2 day trip with Captain Butler on Saturday, 4/12. My 13 year old son and I are not experienced fisherman, but Dave made it easy with some initial instructions and then lots of encouragement. We caught plenty of snapper in different open water and mangrove locations. Dave's boat ran well and speeding around the area was a lot of... More

I booked a trip on the reel McCoy so I could fish with capt george. When I showed up I had another captain with no notice. I had even traded voice mails with the can't the night before and he said he would see me the next day. Unacceptable in my book. The caption I was with did not even... More

We just returned home to Colorado after having an amazing vacation at Bud n' Mary's. I especially wanted to thank Dave Morris (Fishwife) for making our experience one that will never be forgotten. There were 4 of us in our party and he went above and beyond to ensure we all caught fish....which we did! He was more than willing... More

Did a backcountry fishing trip with Fishwife and Captain Dave. He knew where to find fish and was FUN to be with for the day. Helped our wives fish and did everything!! Caught mackarel and snapper, probably 40-50 fish in total. A fun relaxing day with Dave. Definitely use him again!!

Well, we had another great year fishing with Capt. John Johansen out of Bud and Mary's Marina! If you get the chance book a charter with him. He teaches and shows you about the area fishing, as well as, helps you catch whatever you're after! We can't say enough good things about him and will book with him again next... More

We just got back from a great half day with Capt. Rick S. doing some back country fishing. He asked what we wanted to do and he did just that. We had a great time catching Tarpon and also getting good mess of Snappers to eat. Had a great time, we will be coming back down. Thanks again Rick!

We wanted to rent a boat that provided some comfort -- the fishing boats do not really come with cushioned seating, and since my husband and I had no desire to fish, but instead just wanted to get out on the water for the day, comfort was key. We headed to Bud and Mary's on the recommendation of a local... More

Capt. John Johansen was my contact for a two day fishing trip in late Feb. 2014. He arranged for us to fish a half day first with his friend Capt. Vinnie Biondotelli and then for a full day with him. I told them we would fish for what they knew was biting then. Capt. Vinnie guided us to dinner, catching... More

3 times I have had the pleasure of having Capt. Shaw take me in the backwaters. And I have never been disappointed, he knows where the fish are and I must say them Mangrove Snappers are damn fine eating fish.

We wanted to catch a lot of fish, not monsters, but numbers, and Captain Johnny Johansen was dialed in for results. We had a spectacular day on a well stocked and maintained flats boat with a seasoned local captain than knows the FL bay like I know my yard. Good variety of fish caught including a shark, and a surprise... More
