Captain Buddy took me and my two sons (20 & 21). We caught several Red Snappers, groupers, and each of us brought in a Tarpon. He went above and beyond in getting us on good spots. I highly recommend Captain Buddy if you are the lower Keys! We will book him again.

If you want to catch fish and have a great time doing it Buddy is your man. Top notch equipment and a knowledge of the fishing grounds that is superior! He is hard to book because he knows his stuff and everyone knows it so call early to get on his schedule! You will not regret it!

Wow! This guy is a seasoned expert and a genuine nice guy with great boat and fishing equipment. I’ve only been fishing for over 60 years and found Buddy to be, not only a wonderful fishing guide, but a lot of fun on the water. He knows the local waters like the back of his hand and can take you to the right place depending on the weather and what you would like to catch. I’d give him 6+ rating if I could.

We have fished with Captain Buddy 6 years running. Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, Tarpon, Trout, Black Tip Sharks, Nurse Sharks...he works hard to make sure each trip is a successful one. He's also one of the main reasons we come back to Marathon Key each year. Buddy is exceptional working with young anglers...he has a heart of gold.

Thanks to Buddy for a great morning's fishing ! He was a patient teacher to 2 newbies who had never fished before. And to our surprise we managed to catch everything from a shark to a multitude of snappers. Thanks again Buddy ! Matt
