Captain Armando Alejo has been fishing actively for 20 years. 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 boyfriend and I took our first fishing road trip down all of south Florida and this was by far one of the best experiences we had. Capt. Armando was not only super knowledgeable about the Everglades and where to find the fish but also extremely hospitable and helpful throughout the whole day. He had all the equipment we needed and was able to put us on snook, redfish, triple tail, and even on a huge tarpon that we had to fight a black tip shark over. Capt. Armando was cheering us on everytime we had a bite and his genuine love for fishing and positive personality made it almost impossible not to have a great time. Unbelievable trip! We will be back for more very soon.
