About A-Squared Charters

If you are looking for a world class fishing trip, you’ve come to right place. I have been fortunate to fish the Glades over the past 20+ years, and I can’t think of a better place to seek out such a variety of salt and freshwater fish. The minute my Maverick HPX 18 hits the water up “front” or the “back” of Everglades National Park problems seem to quickly fade away! Everglades National Park has plentiful opportunities for both the seasoned angler and those seeking their first experience with world class bay or backcountry fishing. Folks from all over the world come to the Everglades seeking an opportunity to catch Redfish, Black drum, Snook, Tripletail, Sea Trout, Tarpon, among many other popular species.

Everglades National Park

The largest tropical wilderness of any kind in the eastern United States, located less than one hour from the city of Miami, and visited by approximately one million people each year.  Established in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman to protect its unique and fragile ecosystem, the Everglades are a network of wetlands and forests fed by a river flowing.  The park is a breeding ground for tropical wading birds and contains the largest mangrove ecosystem in the western hemisphere.  The park is home to 36 threatened or protected species including the Florida panther, the West Indian manatee and the American crocodile.

It’s also the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist.  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.

Everglades National Park is a world class fishery where you can cast at a mangrove shoreline for Redfish or Snook, sight fish for Tripletail in the Gulf of Mexico and push pole on a grass flat searching for rolling Tarpon, all on the same fishing trip.  My clients describe Everglades as a “CONTROL ALT DELETE” for the mind, “a great way to break the routine of everyday life”.

Capt. Armando Alejo
U.S. Coast Guard Licensed
I have lived and fished in South Florida since my grade school years.  My earliest fishing experience began on the residential lakes of Miami Lakes (fishing for Peacock Bass in the 90’s) and evolved to the freshwater canal systems of the Everglades for Largemouth Bass.  Essentially, I’ve actively fished since I was 10 years old.  It was on my 21st birthday that a trip to Flamingo- Everglades National Park changed my mindset and helped launch my experience to Light Tackle Fishing in the Glades.  On that trip, I hooked and landed my first Redfish.  Redfish quickly became a species I value and respect for its relentless fight and its superb table fare.  Currently, I spend five to eight weeks a year on the water guiding clients to Redfish, Black drum, Snook, Tripletail, Sea Trout, Tarpon, among many other popular species.

Our Boat
Maverick 18 HPX

Professionally, I’ve dedicated my life to K-12 education. This affords me the luxury of free time of which most is spent navigating the pristine waters of Everglades National Park. I am a U.S. Coast Licensed captain and I trailer my Maverick 18 HPX (rigged with a new Yamaha VMAX) to Flamingo- Everglades National Park, Everglades City or to a freshwater canal on the Everglades canal system. Each location is a unique fishery, and each offers world class fishing to anglers of all experience levels and can catch drum, Snook, Tripletail, Sea Trout, Tarpon, among many other popular species.
