2023 Season is upon us!

I have opened up February through May 2023 for bookings for myself personally!  I’ll be opening more in the Summer/Fall for fishing with myself personally later this year, but if you want to get your name in the book give me a shout and I can tentatively schedule you.  You can book open dates by calling Bud n’ Mary’s Marina at 305-664-2461 and asking to book Capt. Rick, or just shoot me an email.  If I’m not available I recommend Capt. Brandon Storin who runs my 20′ SeaCraft boat, or Capt. Trentin Leary who is running our 18′ Action Craft skiff.  Both these young captains I’ve personally trained and they run many of my charter trips for me.  If you have a dream of catching & mounting a trophy tarpon please email me to get your dates locked in – I will try extra hard to get you on my personal schedule if you are going to mount a trophy tarpon!

My team of captains have learned lots of the tips & tricks I’ve found over the last 15 years of my professional guiding career and have been putting in hard work & time (being most important)!  You can see what we’ve been catching here lately on our regularly updated fishing reports.
