Vicky Stark is an Internet Celebrity, whose ticket to fame was through her bikini-wearing fishing posts on Instagram.
Vicky Stark was born on 5 August 1985, in Miami, Florida, USA, so her zodiac sign is Leo and her birth stone is Peridot. She and her sister, Jen were raised by their parents in Miami.
There is no available information about her education.
She is a lady angler who loves to share her fishing adventures to 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 massive-sized fish such as tuna, marlin, peacock bass, and swordfish to name a few. Her videos featured Miami fishing locations from the Everglades to the Biscayne Bay. Sometimes she would go as far as San Cabo, Mexico.
Vicky started her Instagram account on 4 April 2012. Her 706 posts were mostly about the fishes and sea creatures that she caught. During the first few years her account was very low-key and mostly the Likes that her posts had were from friends and fishing enthusiasts. However, sometime in 2016, the Likes went up to a thousand and she gained more followers. In 2020, she has gained 200,000 followers, and her photo posts are averaging about 7,000 Likes. The videos posted on her account gained more Likes as compared to her photos, and a video can get as much as 60,000 Likes.
The interest spike went up due to her wearing colorful scanty, string bikinis while fishing. Even non-fishing enthusiasts are following her and liking her posts. However, in one of her interviews, she mentioned that she needed to block some followers due to abusive and vulgar language.
She opened a YouTube account way back in 19 December 2011, but didn’t publish her first video for six years, on 16 May 2017 and it gained around 35,000 views. YouTube was her chosen platform for posting longer videos.
The biggest number of views was her birthday video where she went Bikini Bowfishing on 11 August 2018 in Central Florida with her buddies, Byron and Kim Hennecy, of Osceola Outback, and it gained over 10 million views. In early 2020, she posted a total of 120 videos, with total views amounting to well over 80 million.
Her Facebook account, Vicky Stark Fishing, was created on 21 July 2017 and has 28,000 followers. Her Instagram account is linked to her Facebook account, and so her posts on Instagram would automatically be shared on Facebook.
In 2019, she launched her online store, but the only thing that was offered was the limited edition of the 2019 Vicky Stark Fishing Calendar that was sold out for a price of $20 each.
Vicky is currently in a relationship with Capt. Ryan Eidelstein – he is the owner of Reel McCoy Charters. The business offers Inshore & Offshore boat services for Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon fishing in Biscayne Bay in Florida. She is also a business partner, as her services are included in the charter options offered on his 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 27 April 2019.
After a few months of posting photos of themselves together, 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 seemed to be close with her sister, Jen Stark. Jen in return has posted a few photos of them together, but is also quite private when it comes to family. Her sister is a contemporary artist who is gaining prominence due to 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 artwork using various geometric shapes in different colors has produced unique creations that have captured many eyes, not only in the field of art but also in music and fashion.
Her psychedelic murals and animations have become popular, such as the one in Facebook headquarters and another one used as the backdrop of the MTV Video Music Awards in 2015, which Miley Cyrus hosted. The pop artist is a huge fan of Stark’s work. Vicky’s sister was also given the chance to do the mural in one of the terminals in 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, only sharing a couple of photos of her daughters in the past.
Based on her recent photo posted on her Instagram account, Vicky has a perfectly toned body and an hourglass body shape. She is Caucasian with long blond hair and brown eyes.
Sources estimate that Vicky has a net worth of over $400,000, as of early 2020.
