It was a very cold day but Captain Armando still put us on a lot of fish! Had a blast catching sheepshead until we filled our cooler! Captain Armando is a “must book” if you’re heading to the keys.
1st cast landed a tarpon…great day with Capt. Armando. Caught a variety of fish. Very experienced and knows a ton about the Everglades. Genuinely a really nice guy…you won’t be disappointed.
Last year we booked one day trip and it was great. This year we booked 3 day trips and had a blast. Armando set us up on good fishing spots and was great on telling us where fish would be. He has great gear and great knowledge. He’s a really ...Read More nice guy to fish with.
We live in South Florida and enjoy our local wildlife and fisheries. We don’t own a boat so when we want to get out on the water we never hesitate to contact Captain Armando. We have booked several fishing trips and they are always a blast and never ...Read More disappoint. His boat is comfortable and he always makes us feel at home. He’s also very knowledgeable and always adapts to make sure we’re always catching fish.
Fantastic trip with a great guide. Capt. Armando took 3 of us to Flamingo Everglades. I caught a 3-lb snook on first cast—and 3 more in next 6 minutes. Plus over a dozen other snook, grunts, ladyfish. A blackfin shark too. And a keeper redfish we ate for lunch next day. More ...Read More important than the catching is the whole social experience. Capt. A was industrious and a good talker, eager to help. Knowledgeable about the area—his fishing sport for >20 years. Even on our trip back to dock when he should have been in a hurry, he stopped to have us cast for the elusive Three-tail, willing to take extra time. Caught a couple, too small to keep & eat. Next time! Great guy, grest day.
Four of us went for a 1/2 day (4 hr) fishing trip with Captain Armando and had the best day! He gave clear instructions on preparation and where to meet, and took us to a part of the Everglades National Park that we would have never discovered on our own. ...Read More He’s a patient and skilled teacher, and since some of us were beginners, having his fishing guidance was incredibly helpful. For those more experienced, you’ll have an equally great time. Captain Armando shares things he’s learned from his 30+ years of fishing in the Everglades, and knows the best fishing spots to go to. He was a great addition to our group — a lot of fun :) and very humble. He started the trip by asking us what we were hoping to get out of the day and he fully delivered! At the end of the day, he filleted the (many!!) fish we caught making it easy for us to throw them on the grill when we got home. I’ll be recommending him to my friends and family! Thank you, Captain Armando!
We had a great trip with captain Armando. He’s a friendly engaging host who knows what he’s doing. He made the trip enjoyable for all. We all caught fish and many kinds of fish. Saw lots of other wildlife too. Dolphins, crocodile, manatee, sharks. Great new clean boat which was ...Read More a smooth ride.
Great experience, and great success. Highly recommended.
I had such a great time fishing with Captain Armando 2 years ago, I booked a return trip last year (2020). Well, we all know about 2020… I find ally made it back down to fish with him & had a blast! He has the local knowledge, experience & expertise ...Read More to put you on the fish! I joked with him that the last sweet spot we fished at the end of the day was like a box of chocolates because we pulled out 5 different species of fish! Captain Armando has a new boat that rides really stable, has an awesome stereo system, & gets to the next spot in no time. When he says “hold on” he isn’t kidding 😎 He is also a wonderful, kind & patient man! Looking forward to fishing with him again soon!
We had a great time fishing. Captain Armando’s boat and equipment allowed us to do things that you can’t do on other charters. The boat is fast and comfortable. We covered a lot of distance, and the trolling motor is great technology. There was a great variety of different kinds ...Read More of fish, and we were catching a steady volume all day. We didn’t catch a trophy, but stayed busy and caught about 50 fish. Captain Armando is agreeable, focused on finding fish, and helpful but not overbearing. He goes the extra mile (or the extra 125 miles) to make sure you have a great fishing trip.
The weather and water was against Captain Armando today but that did not stop him from putting us on the fish! Even though we were met with every obstacle the weather could throw at us, Captain Armando had an answer for it! And with that, we ended the day with ...Read More Redfish, Trout, and Black Drum!! Not to mention sightings of amazing wildlife including manatee, dolphins, and crocodiles. Not sure what more someone could ask for out of a Captain! Armando delivers and I can’t wait to do it all again!
