A-Squared Charters has been one of anglers’ favorite charters for many years. Captain Armando has been putting people on fish for years out of Key Largo. Now, you have a chance to start your adventure from the other side of the Everglades, and board in Choko.

These trips take place on a 23’ Pathfinder as well. This bay boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and quickly reaches any fishing spot you want to visit. There’s enough room for anglers to fish in comfort, so you can share the adventure with your loved ones. The boat also features a trolling engine, GPS, and top-notch fishing equipment.

Explore the backcountry of the Everglades National Park and target a variety of species. You can go after Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout. After the trip is over, the captain will clean and fillet your catch free of charge.

A big part of the experience on this charter is Capt. Armando’s hospitality and friendliness. He’ll easily make any novice angler feel comfortable and start landing fish like it was their hobby for some time. Your guide is also sponsored by several marine industry leaders, which ensured he has the best fishing equipment, ready to serve you.

Besides the equipment, Captain. Armando also covers your fishing licenses, so you only need to pack your sun protection, snacks, and some drinks.

Captain Armando has been fishing actively for three decades. His earliest experience was fishing for Peacock Bass in the 90’s on the residential lakes of Miami Lakes, FL, on his bike! This later led to his first visit to the Flamingo Everglades in 1991. On that day, Armando caught his first Redfish, and it has since then become his favorite species to catch. In 2013 Armando caught a 50 lb Blackdrum, and decided at that moment that he wanted to teach folks to do the same! Armando has entered, fished and guided in may prestigious tournaments (including the Herman Lucerne) having won two in the past three years! Most recently, he took first prize in the 4th annual Hook'em in the Glades charity tournament having beat out 50 or more boats.
