5 star ratingWe tried to stay here and it was booked... but we stopped here on the drive. It was the highlight of the drive! Sharks, tarpon, pelican, great ibis and a manatee!! We just watched the animals for an hour.

4 star ratingI looked at most of the websites prior to booking wirh Capt Rick. TOPSHELF; I got there plenty early and had breakfast at their store. Great call, biscuits and gravy large portion and very good!
It was still 30 minutes before our scheduled time to leave so I asked around the bait shop if Ricky was there yet. I was told that he had left to go get bait, usually this is done on the way to the fishing grounds taking up your fish time. I was aready pleased when Capt Ricky showed up and was ready to leave. His boat was outfitted with the latest in gear and electrionics. I really liked his trolling motor, it was tied to the GPS so when we got to site the motor kept us in perfect position for the bait to drift over the reef. I caught too many fish! Grouper types, snapper types LOTS of great eats!
Capt Ricky is a very good Skipper, he knows the waters and follows the tides very well. I am already planning next years trip and plan to book with Capt Rick @ Bud & Mary's.....

5 star ratingTook some friends from out of town on the Miss Islamorada party fishing boat at Budnmarys. When ever I come down to the Keys I always stay at Budnmarys they have the best service as well the cutest houseboats facing the ocean, clean facilities, and great customer service. Oh and their cafe has by far the best large homemade buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwiches, plus they make a great sub for you to take on the boat with you. Oh and for you cat lovers out there be sure to swing by the office to meet Mary the friendly dockside cat. Well back to the fishing, I had some friends from Utah come down and they never fished the Atlantic before. This was my first time using them and definitely not the last. We caught a lot of yellowtail snapper along with my first keeper size mutton snapper. Between the wittiness of the Captain and Brad/Phillip (mates) assisting us every step of the way. Made our fishing that much better and easier. I will be back soon, heck maybe next week for my birthday.
