If you are looking for an unforgettable fishing trip, you must book with A2 Charters! Captain Armando Alejo was our guide and has fished the Glades over the past two decades.

Everglades National Park has plentiful opportunities for those seeking their first experience. Catch a Redfish, Snook, Tripletail, Trout, Tarpon, among many other popular species.

The park also supports 350 species of birds (including the Roseate Spoonbill, Wood Stork, Great Blue Heron, and multiple species of egrets) and over 300 species of fresh and saltwater fish including Redfish, Black drum, Snook, Tripletail, Sea Trout, Tarpon, among many others.

Fishing is an activity I have only begun to enjoy, as I’m a total novice. In fact, one of my first voyages was with Captain Armando. He got us hooked on fishing! Many people enjoy hobbies that are relaxing and peaceful, and others prefer exhilarating activities that never have a dull moment. Fishing has it all!
The excitement begins to rise as the first cast draws nearer. The motor is prepared for take-off and the key is placed in the ignition. The engine turns over and the huge motor roars. The sleek boat accelerates rapidly and speeds toward the first fishing spot of the day. In a matter of minutes, the powerful boat glides into the fishing spot. The anticipation of catching a fish becomes almost unbearable. The fishing poles are grabbed quickly out of the rod lockers, and shrimp lures are tied onto the end of the fishing line. Moments later, the sound of a lure splashing into the water can be heard from the boat. The real adventure has just begun.
Fishing has been around a long time and has been evolving over the years. In fact, the first known fishermen were from the Stone Age. They used materials that were available to them to catch fish and put food on the table for their families.

Succeeding the Stone Age however, fishing has slowly begun to transform into more of a sport than a method of providing food. National Geographic states, “It wasn’t until the 15th century that fishing began its evolution into a sport. Previously, fishing was simply a means for survival.”

Fishing has changed so immensely that it has become a competitive sport. Fishermen all over the world angle competitively against each other in huge tournaments for a living. Exciting stuff!

Get your exciting summer on and book today with Captain Armando and his team! Website link below. 😉
