My wife and I just returned from a great trip to Islamorada. While many parts of our trip were memorable, the absolute best part of our trip was the Backcountry Fishing Trip out of Bud N Mary's. Our guide was Captain Rick Stanczyk, and he was excellent. We took off just before dawn and headed to catch some bait. He... More

My fiancé, sister, brother in law and I all went on our very first lobster charter with captain Rob! He did an awesome job teaching us how to catch lobster and taking us to spots filled with lobsters! We had an amazing time and definitely recommend this to people of all skills levels looking to get some lobsters this season!

Stayed in the Tackle Shop room. Really nice and convenient to the marina. Took two fishing trips. One full day back country with Captain Rick Stanczyk. He got us on the fish right away. Got some sharks, snook, and tarpon. Super nice and professional. Next day went offshore with Captain Travis Dickens and Mate Phillip aboard Man O War. True... More

Great experience. Crew is top notch. This is a party boat, not a private charter. We went out with close to 40 people. It was crowded, but the crew ensures that everyone that wants to has a chance to catch fish. There were 5 or 6 sharks caught as well as many yellow tail, snappers, and grunts. It's fishing at...

My wife and I went out with Captain John Johansen on 07/25/2015. We had a great time! He was professional, explained what we were going to do and how to do it. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fun guide to fish with. We look forward to coming back to Islamorada!! Thanks for the easy and fun... More

Booked a trip to Islamorada last minute to take the family fishing. We had been to florida keys several times, but this was the first trip to Islamorada. Wanted to take the boys(13 and 15) back country and spend a day offshore. After researching some I called Bud N Marys and got two trips locked in. The first trip was... More

My wife and I left the dock with Capt. Rick Stanczyk around 6am. What a GREAT trip. Caught some bait in the back country and headed over to the spot where some tarpon had been the day before. After wearing out the shark, sting rays, grouper and others, we finally hooked up with a 60 lb tarpon. What a great... More
