2024 Season starting soon, book your fishing trip today!

Welcome to the home of Capt. Rick Stanczyk’s Fishing Islamorada.  Here you can read our latest Islamorada fishing reports.  Capt. Rick Stanczyk is a 2nd generation fishing captain out of Islamorada, Florida.  His family owns & operates the world famous Bud n’ Mary’s Marina.  Rick has grown up fishing all his life in the Keys, and has focused on tarpon for much of his guiding career for the last 16 years.  Though we catch plenty of other species while fishing in the Islamorada backcountry.  Rick has put together a talented team of guides who all work in tandem with him providing excellent charter service!  They share fishing intel, catching bait together, and keep the boats operating properly.  Having that kind of team around you helps make for much more productive fishing, especially when things get challenging.  Capt. Rick is fishing a limited schedule for 2024 season (likely 3 days a week on my new boat) and Capt. Stephen Byrd is running his other Contender full time.  Capt. Trentin Leary is running the 20′ SeaCraft Bay Boat now and does a great job as well!  This was the boat that Rick started his guiding career in and is an excellent boat!  If you have a dream of catching & mounting a trophy fish please email to get your dates locked in – Rick will try extra hard to get you on his personal schedule if you are going to mount a trophy fish.
