We have been on many fishing trips over the years. Most on our boat but several on chartered and partyboats as well. So we are not novices to this activity. We know that a good day of fishing doesn't always mean a full well. Calm seas, warm sunshine, tight lines and a sore arm from reeling should put a smile... More

The crew was polite and helpful. Bait was plentiful. A word of advice for those who left negative reviews on the crew. If you need help ask for it. We've used this boat several times over the years. Whenever we've asked for assistance they have been very helpful. The crew is very busy especially if there are a lot of... More

This charter was absolutely the best. Our captain, Jeff Beeler, is amazing. His knowledge, skill of boat operation and fishing techniques are top shelf. We are two senior women who had very little fishing experience - never salt water - and he made our day. Personable, witty, fun - just an amazing guy. A side note.....to our great relief -... More

My friend and I decided to make the trip down for the day to Bud n Mary's not knowing what to expect (we were basically shut out on our last backwater trip out of Key West). We went out with Captain Rick on his surprisingly comfortable and dry boat (his boat even has some chairs up front making the hour... More

We stayed in the Lucky Lady houseboat and loved it! It was definitely a unique experience and fairly rustic, but we enjoyed it. If you want a standard hotel this place is not for you. Bud n Mary's is a world class fishing marina, (so it is pretty fishy smelling) with huge carp swimming in the marina, manatees and we... More

My son and I stayed at Bud n Mary's over the holiday break. My 10 yr old son and I made arrangements to fish with Captain Rick Stanczyk.... By far this was the BEST charter that I have EVER been on. We had 20 Jacks, 10 Mackerel, and 2 huge cobias by 10:30 am! Our arms and hands were tired... More

A wonderful boutique, TREMENDOUS staff, near the must visit Acquarium and great restaurants--plus a wood burning fireplace, which is perfect when you pause for a stay in the well appointed rooms. Breakfast is delivered to your room each morning--a very nice touch. I hesitate to tell others where to stay--but I highly recommend the Spindrift.

Jim is hands down a professional. My Dad and fished with him last year in the Everglades and I also did a half day bone fishing. We just got back a couple weeks ago from two full days with Jim. We fished reds and snook in the Everglades and sharks another. His passion for fishing and the keys is very... More
