Vicky Stark is an internet celebrity, whose ticket to fame was due to her bikini-wearing fisherman posts on Instagram.
Vicky Stark was born on August 5, 1985 in Miami, Florida, USA, so her zodiac sign is Leo and her birthstone is Peridot. She and her sister Jen were raised by their parents in Miami.
There is no information available about her education.
She is a female fisherman who loves to share her fishing adventures with the public through popular social media apps, such as Instagram, YouTube and Facebook. Due to her rising online popularity, she received sponsorship and endorsement deals from G Loomis, Smith Optics and OneOne Swimwear. She is quite capable of catching small to huge fish such as tuna, marlin, peacock bass and swordfish to name a few. Her videos feature fishing spots in Miami from the Everglades to Biscayne Bay. Sometimes she even went as far as San Cabo, Mexico.
Vicky started her Instagram account on April 4, 2012. Her 706 messages were mainly about the fish and sea creatures she caught. During the first few years, her account was very low-key and the Likes her posts had were mostly from friends and anglers. However, sometime in 2016, the Likes went to a thousand and she gained more followers. In 2020, she has gained 200,000 followers and her photo posts average around 7,000 Likes. The videos posted on her account have gotten more Likes compared to her photos, and a video can get as many as 60,000 Likes.
Interest peaked due to her wearing colorful skimpy thong bikinis while fishing. Even non-fishing enthusiasts follow her and like her posts. However, in one of her interviews, she said that she had to block some of her followers because of foul and vulgar language.
She opened a YouTube account on December 19, 2011, but did not publish her first video in six years, on May 16, 2017, which was viewed about 35,000 times. YouTube was her chosen platform for posting longer videos.
The highest number of views was her birthday video where she went to Bikini Bowfishing in Central Florida with her buddies Byron and Kim Hennecy from Osceola Outback on August 11, 2018, and it has been viewed more than 10 million times. In early 2020, she posted a total of 120 videos, with total views of over 80 million.
Her Facebook account, Vicky Stark Fishing, was created on July 21, 2017 and has 28,000 followers. Her Instagram account is linked to her Facebook account, so her posts on Instagram would automatically be shared on Facebook.
In 2019, she launched her online store, but all that was offered was the limited edition of the Vicky Stark Fishing Calendar 2019 that sold out at a price of $20 each.
Vicky is currently in a relationship with Captain Ryan Eidelstein – he is the owner of Reel McCoy Charters. The company provides Inshore & Offshore boat services for Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon fishing in Florida’s Biscayne Bay. She is also a business partner as her services are included in the charter options offered on its website. No one knew when they started dating, but her Instagram followers assumed it was on or before she shared their first photo together on April 27, 2019.
After posting pictures of themselves together for a few months, sometime in July, one of her fans asked Vicky if she was dating him, and she said yes. From the rare photos of family she posted on Instagram, she appeared to have a close relationship with her sister, Jen Stark. Jen has posted a few photos of them together in return, but is also pretty private when it comes to family. Her sister is a contemporary artist who is gaining fame for her impressive talent.
She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the New World School of Art, Maryland Institute College of Art.
Her layered artworks with different geometric shapes in different colors have yielded unique creations that have attracted a lot of attention not only in the field of art, but also in the field of music and fashion.
Her psychedelic murals and animations have become popular, such as the one at Facebook headquarters and another used as the background of the MTV Video Music Awards in 2015, which Miley Cyrus hosted. The pop artist is a big fan of Stark’s work. Vicky’s sister also got the chance to do the mural in one of the terminals at Miami Airport; apparently their paternal great-grandparents owned the land where the airport is now located.
She currently lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband. Their mother Lynda has an Instagram account but is not very active and only shares a few pictures of her daughters in the past.
Based on her recent photo posted on her Instagram account, Vicky has a perfect toned body and an hourglass body shape. She is white with long blonde hair and brown eyes.
Sources estimate that Vicky has a net worth of over $400,000 in early 2020.
