My buddy Mike and I spent a day fishing with Tony in Key West. We caught a variety of jacks, pompano, lady fish, yellowjackets, snapper and even a blacktip shark. Tony knows his stuff and I will go fishing with him everytime I go to the Keys.

Second trip for my son and I to Key West. Both times we absolutely had to fish with AWS charters (Captain Skinner). Caught Tarpon, shark, barracuda, and dozens of snapper. Tony is a consummate professional. Great coaching, instruction and conversation on many topics and he is very supportive with children on the boat. Very difficult weather conditions to deal with...

My buddy and I went down to key west with one main purpose in mind. That was to FISH! We spent a insane amount of time researching and calling other captains and trying to find the best fit. We decided on a flats trip because we wanted to FISH, not troll for 6 hours , not drop shrimp to the... More

I've been fishing for 60 years and over that time have had a lot of guides - Tony is the best I've run into. Now, the fact that he put me onto my first Tarpon may bias me little but here's why: He knows the waters inside out and he really understands fish behaviour, his gear is in first rate... More

Tony is a very good guide! Though we didn't have good weather conditions, Tony did a super job of finding places where we could fish. He does a great job of positioning the boat so casting is easier, and he is great at spotting fish. Well done Tony! Will book again AWS Charters.

This was my first time Fishing the Flats and it was an awesome experience. I felt like it was just as much hunting as it was fishing and Tony's infinite knowledge found us fish. We caught 5 Jack Cravelle and then landed a tarpon. What an outstanding experience. Fish With Tony!!

The only mistake we made was not booking our fishing trip for the whole day. We had such a beautiful morning, and Captain Tony was fantastic. Easy going, personable, and knowledgable. Tony pays attention to the environment, and knows where the fish are. We were floating around after catching a bunch of fish, I made a comment that we were... More

Tony, I have to tell you that was the best fishing I have ever done. Tim said it was the greatest moment of his LIFE. We appreciated your patience with us, I know it was a little tight with 2. The constant questions you answered from us was probably a little too much, but your infinite knowledge is priceless for... More
