About Offshore Capt. Nick Stanczyk

Capt. Nick Stanczyk grew up with a fishing rod in his hand in Islamorada, Florida Keys.  His family has owned and operated the world famous Bud n’ Mary’s Fishing Marina since 1978, which has been a mecca in the sportfishing community since 1944.  His father, Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr, grew up in Miami and started offshore fishing there back in the early 1960s.  He moved down to the Keys in the late 70s, bought the marina, and began fishing much of the backcountry water.  He guided Capt. Gaspeny to the one-time fly world record bonefish of 14 lbs 6 oz.  Nick spent his childhood on and around the water – from fishing with friends after school to on the weekends spent offshore with his uncle, Capt. Scott Stanczyk.  He fished many of the Jr. sailfish and dolphin tournaments growing up, winning several, as well as being a Jr. M.E.T record holder.  He mated with his uncle as a teenager and got his captains license at the age of 18.  He attended University of Miami (same as his father) graduating in 2007 with a degree in communications, where he also crafted the art of creating fishing videos.  After school he returned to Islamorada to pursue his true passion – fishing – and has been an offshore charter fishing captain ever since!  In the early 2000s along with his father, uncle, and a select few others, the Stanczyk crew devised the art of daytime swordfishing.  Capt. Nick is well known for swordfishing and that is one of his specialties.  He’s been featured in magazines and publications around the world.  Come fishing with Capt. Nick Stanczyk and experience the ‘new breed’ of offshore fisherman in the Florida Keys!
