A2 fans. We are excited to share we have a NEW Pathfinder 2300 Bay Boat! (See photos attached). This vessel can comfortably fish FOUR folks! Our weather has begun to change, and our favorite time of the year to be outside is QUICKLY approaching. Contact us to book your trip today! Currently, we are finding good size Redfish (Red drum) very close to home but also within a short boat ride from the ramp as well. We are looking for two major areas to target, first, are the classic mangrove shorelines and second are marked channels adjacent to grass flats. Each of these zones are hit at different tides, we prefer the mangrove scenario on a rising or the first few hours of the dropping tide. Whereas the channel scenario I prefer to do on the last three hours of a dropping tide. In either scenario, we are sticking to our tried and true soft plastic bait rig.. We prefer GULP shrimp imitation patterns in as natural a color as you can find. We are throwing these with a popping cork rig with LOTS of success! All in all, our fishing weather will only get better and we know the fishing will do the same just as soon as we begin getting our first few winter blasts! See y'all on the water!

Spotty weather, GOOD bite.
October 25, 2020
Greetings A2 current and future clients. This month has dealt us a weather challenge, with unseasonably wet conditions, but we've worked hard to keep our ice chest with good fish in it. On a recent trip, we zipped into the Glades on our new Pathfinder and found a good Redfish bite. Sprinkled in have been Tarpon, juvenile Snook and some Trout. We've spent most of our days throwing the best popping corks in the industry- Four horsemen.. paired with 1/4 jigs and soft plastic baits. Our fishing now is good and we are anticipating our first cold fronts, and with them the migration of trophy black drum and other species. See y'all on the water. Capt A2.
Triple tail and other species, on fire !
May 23, 2020
Greetings from the South Florida Everglades. *We are practicing structured cleaning practices to ensure our boat and equipment are safe and clean* Currently, we are on large schools of Red fish and Triple tail as well. For Red fish, we are working grass flats on the higher tides but also channels running off of the flats (on the lower tides) and are achieving great success with large schools. The most productive Triple tail action seems to be near the gulf beaches, with the largest concentrations near floating seaweed. Redfish and Tripletail both are taking to artificial baits such as shrimp imitations and paddle tails, the colors vary but lighter colors are currently working best. On a recent trip (picture attached), my clients Julio and father Julio slammed 20+ Redfish and 10+ Triple tail all on a full day charter. All in all, we are capitalizing on an epic bite at this time, we encourage you to book today as our calendar is filling up into June and July. ** Capt Armando is a Florida native and has fished the South Fl Everglades over the past 20 years.

Triple tail are here!
May 16, 2020
Greetings from the South Florida Everglades. *We are practicing structured cleaning practices to ensure our boat and equipment are safe and clean* There are many species to catch in the Glades but Triple tail, may be our favorite! As the water and afternoons heat up, our triple tail are showing in HUGE numbers, and earlier than anticipated... we are currently targeting large open bays and areas near the coast to find the larger fish. My clients are currently throwing artificial and natural baits both, and we are noticing this year's TT's are taking to many different baits as opposed to just natural baits. On a recent father and son trip we boated 10 or more TT's, with two of them weighing 10 or more pounds. I'd be leaving a major part of my report out if I didn't mention Redfish! Our Redfish are out in LARGE schools, currently, we are finding those near oyster beds and mainly on the dropping tides! Redfish too are taking to artificial baits primarily! ** Capt Armando is a Florida native and has fished the South Fl Everglades over the past 20 years.
