Hands down one of the best guides in the lower keys. Extremely knowledgable on species available based on month and weather, and how best to catch them (both fly and conventional tackle). Capt. Tony works well with a novice angler up to an expert fly fisherman. Excellently maintained flats boat, and uses top end fly and spinning gear. A full... More

We didn't​ do the flats fishing with Capt Tony, but went with his wife Allison on the larger deck boat for to some of the many islands. This is a great trip for families, or couples who are interested in getting on the water without being on 'fishing' boat. Though we did fish. Allison was great company and very informative.... More

Captain Tony worked his butt off for me. He sited several barracuda and guided me the whole time on casting and direction. We boated one very energetic cuda and hooked up 3 or 4 more. We had several chase but broke away at the last second. I can't say enough about his knowledge and hard work. I would highly recommend... More

We fish up in MI but not spin casting. Tony was the best captain we could of asked for. The seas were unusually calm but he got us out of the boat even to sneak up on the barracuda and even enabled us to catch shark.. Can't say enough how awesome the experience was... Definately will be doing this again... More

My father-in-law and I went fishing with Tony. We had a good time! The two of us really wanted to catch a shark. The conditions were bad today but Tony was able to get us into a position to catch a shark and we did a — strong 6-7 ft lemon shark! Not only was Tony knowledgeable and skilled, he... More

I have lived here in Key West for 18 years and have enjoyed the Keys waters in every way....or so I thought. I'm a diver, a spear fisherman and an occasional deep water fishing enthusiast. I went sight-cast fishing with Captain Tony Skinner and was introduced to a whole new way of fishing. Captain Tony taught me how to cast... More

Absolutely wonderful trip with the best Capt. in Key West! Tony is a blast and focuses on you the entire time, providing one on one help from casting to bringing in your catch. I took my Dad for his first fishing trip and we are already planning the return trip with Tony. I can't recommend AWS Charters enough!

Fished two full days with Tony and it was my fourth and fifth time fishing with him. It's always fantastic, which is why I keep coming back to him. No matter how many fish you catch it's always a great time, and trust me, you will catch fish with him. This weekend was a bonefish extravaganza!
