What an experience!! Spent a couple hours out with Sara pulling stone crab traps as a girls trip while the guys went on a fishing charter! Stepped out of my comfort zone and had blast!! Highly recommend this for anyone coming to The Keys! The crab claws were delicious! We spent another day out boating with Sara helping her find... More

My husband and I had two great days fishing back country with Captain Rick Stanczyk. What I really like about Rick (other than he helped me catch a giant tarpon) was how he always kept us informed of what we were doing and why. I have fished with other guides who don't communicate and since my husband and I fish... More

Like the others, the store staff are great, very accommodating and helpful. The boat was understaffed .... needing another deckhand. The crew are very nice and hard working, but because of the way they fish (netting live bait, using dough balls and long lines for yellow-tail, etc), they are not proactive .... you DO need to ask for help. They... More

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
