About the Captain

Captain Armando Alejo has been fishing actively since he was 10 years old. His earliest experience was fishing for Peacock Bass in the 90’s on the residential lakes of Miami Lakes, which later evolved to Largemouth Bass fishing in the freshwater canal systems of the Everglades. But only after Armando landed his first Redfish during a trip to Flamingo-Everglades National Park on his 21st birthday, that he decided to lunch his experience to light tackle fishing in the Glades. Captain Armando spends five to eight weeks a year guiding his clients to many popular inshore and nearshore species.

My elderly Father and I had a memorable experience fishing with Capt Armando!
He is very attentive, knowledgeable of the area and a wonderful man! My Dad will be 90 in September & has fished all over the world.  We were both super impressed with Capt. Armando!
He pays attention to detail, is very observant & works hard to get you in the fish. We were so busy catching fish that we forgot about eating lunch. Book him for a day or half day of tight lines!

My wife and I took a few day break from the weather in Wisconsin and stayed in Key Largo. While there, we had the opportunity to spend a 1/2 day with Captain Armando, which was an exceptional experience. We caught Red Fish, Trout, hooked up to a shark (which got away), and had lots of opportunity to catch fish. We also saw manatees, dolphins, and lots of other wildlife while fishing. Overall I would definitely book again if we can get back to the keys. Thanks for everything!!
