Armando Alejo

Member since May 2017 Key Largo, United States
Background
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

Captain Armando likes inshore fishing on light tackle.

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.
