Background
Captain Armando has loved to fish since the early age of 6. His idol was Jose Wejebe aka "The Spanish Fly", a fishing pioneer.

Captain Armando's charming personality, southern hospitality, as well as a genuine passion for fishing will help you have a fun and productive day on the water. Regardless of your skills and age, he will do his best to make all his guests enjoy their day. Since 2019, the captain has entered various local and national tournaments and has won two of them.

Great bite, Nicer weather!
Great bite, Nicer weather!
Sep 23, 2022 Key Largo
Greetings A2 fans. With a welcomed chill in the air, our best time of the year approaches! But the bite has already stepped up.. Recently we have welcomed aboard Redfish, Tripletail, and abundant Snook aboard! Such was the case on a recent trip with return customer William. On day one of a two day adventure, William and I set out from the world famous Caribbean Club in Key Largo. On this day, we set our sight on Snapper, Snook and maybe some Redfish! Our morning went off GREAT as planned, and within 15 minutes into our first stop, Williams boated his limit of Gray Snapper, keeping none, but simply enjoyed the fierce fight of these feisty dudes!! Having filled his Snapper urge, we ventured from Key Largo waters and into the Flamingo Everglades. At our second stop, we picked up quite the mixed bag; Shepshead, Snapper, Snook, Trout and others... As I waited for the tide to come in, we sight casted to a school of Tripletail, none of which were smaller 20 inches! In short order we boated four, released two, and brought two back for an amazing TT dinner later that evening (One was 12 lbs and the other 8). On our way back, and on a hunch I stopped at a spot that hadn't been good since last season. Well, on this day, and although it took a while to materialize, William and I boated a 1/2 dozen, ALL upper slot Redfish. Keeping none. Day 2 two brought us more Snook that we could count. No tripletail. And another great showing by our friends the Redfish. Book with us today! Before our open slots close. Ps. As always we offer military and first responder discounts. Also, booking multiple days will get you a nice discount as well. See y'all on the water.
