Buddies and Bud N’ Mary’s

I have been so busy with school, hockey and looking for employment after college that I haven’t had time to fish, let alone write about fishing stories. Consequently, I haven’t written in a while.

Finally the smoke has cleared and the dust settled. Finally, I am retired from hockey and have squared with that. No regrets. We had a great season and made a good run all the way to the regional finals. That being said, I couldn’t ask for anything more.


I’ll be getting my degree in two weeks and will graduate with honors. There was a lot of hard work on my part as well as the part of my parents for giving me the opportunity to go to college. I was very blessed to have their financial support as well as meals to take on the road and whenever I got to come home. I also have great friends that have been close to me all these years and helped make things easy. In other words, my family is amazing.

As far as looking for employment after college, it’s a work in progress. That being said, I am following leads and working hard, going to a few interviews and weighing all my options carefully. Sooner or later I will have an offer.

Return to Bud N’ Mary’s

Now as for the real reason why I am writing it is to talk about the trip that I have planned this summer. I am going down to Islamorada to fish out of Bud N’ Mary’s. It’s been four years since I’ve been to the Sportfishing Capital of the World, so needless to say I am extremely excited.

The best part is that this time I am taking six of my closest friends along for the ride.

Bud n Mary's

Bud N’ Mary’s is world famous. From Ted Williams to Hemingway it has been a destination for those seeking trophy gamefish. Conversely, many a novice has absolutely slayed in the Keys as well.

In Conclusion:

There will be dolphin, there will be tarpon, there will be sharks and redfish and tunas. Fish like pelagics and flats fish alike.

We may check out the nightlife in Key West or try for peacocks in places like Miami or Fort Lauderdale. In any event, I will certainly have writing material for a few blog posts to come.

Most importantly, I will be with my friends.

Until next time, Tight Lines.
