Bud n' Mary's Sportfishing Marina,
Islamorada, Florida Keys
An hour and half south of Miami, in beautiful Islamorada, the sport fishing capital of the world, you'll find one of Darryl Cronzy's favourite sport fishing destinations, Bud N' Mary's. Here's a full service angler's Valhalla. If you're an offshore enthusiast in search of dolphin, sailfish, shark, tuna, king mackerel, marlin or barracuda, Bud N' Mary's offers a dozen of the finest charter boats to be found anywhere in the Keys. Each of these diesel powered vessels are clean, modern and comfortable. Even more important, the captains and mates are courteous professionals , the best at their trade and will guarantee you the experience of a lifetime.

Bud N' Mary's is proud of the fact that their offshore boats specialize in light tackle and live bait fishing. Experience the thrill of a 10 foot Atlantic sailfish worked to the release stage with only 20 pound test monofilament. Or how about a 50 pound, six foot, tiger toothed barracuda bowing to a limber graphite wand and medium sized spinning reel that's spooled up with 15 pound test nylon? Bud N' Mary's truly does offer offshore fishing at its best.

Then there's backcountry fishing that can only be found in the Florida Keys. Once again, the backcountry guides that call Bud N' Mary's home are also the finest to be found anywhere in the state. Their expertise and patience will ensure plenty of hook-ups with leaping tarpon, blazing bonefish, powerful permit and enough trout, snook and snapper until your arms feel like they're about to fall off. Here's an interesting fact. More world records are taken here at Bud N' Mary's than anywhere else in the Keys.

And don't for a minute believe that Bud N' Mary's is just for the serious sportsman. The Gulf Lady is a 65 foot party boat that works the famous Alligator Reef during the day and evening for yellowtail snapper, mackerel, grouper and even sailfish. Grab the wife and kids and board the Gulf Lady for an unforgettable experience that can only be found in Islamorada.

Bud N' Mary's also offers visiting anglers top notch accommodations. There are deluxe motel rooms, a luxurious penthouse suite which overlooks the ocean and Florida Bay and also an oceanfront house that accommodates as many as six people.
