Captain Matt Budd is a second-generation USCG Captain and son of a well-known local fishing guide, Cliff Budd. Growing up in Jupiter, Matt has extensive knowledge of the inshore and offshore fishery where he’s highly dialed in on snook.
As a father himself, Matt understands the importance of educating our children while they are young, so he built the Jupiter Fishing Academy to do just that. Matt takes a special interest in working with young people because he knows that they hold the future of our ocean’s ecosystem in their hands. Matt is a former EMT, Firefighter, and state-certified Fire Inspector. This background and years of fishing experience make this a top-notch experience!
When Matt isn’t on the water fishing, you’ll find him freediving, spearfishing, surfing, or practicing his Jiujitsu. Go check out his social media and if you have kids, the Jupiter Fishing Academy is an excellent way for them to become comfortable and confident on the water!
