Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Captain Armando's dad took him fishing at about the age of 6. It didn't take long for him to explore this hobby as he took any available free time to go fish. On his 17th birthday, he and his brother DJ, also a charter captain took to the Flamingo Everglades not having a clue what to expect. It was on this trip that Armando caught his first Redfish, and simply never looked back. In his teenage years, Armando idolized the "Spanish Fly" Jose Wejebe and aspired to be just like him. Armando has achieved humble success in the industry, the highlights include entry and wins into local and national tournaments and a TV commercial for his sponsor at the time, Evinrude engines. At close to 200 FIVE star reviews, Armando takes pride in showing his clients what he knows about fishing the Flamingo Everglades for the past three decades. Quite simply, there isn't a Captain in the area that has the experience Armando has- jump aboard and be pampered by world class customer service! A2 Fishing Charters
