We had a great fishing trip. All the necessary fishing equipment was ready to go. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and we caught fish! I would recommend AWS Charters for your next Key West fishing adventure.

Caught some interesting species and had a great experience doing so out on the flats near Key West. Felt we were lucky with the weather...the wind was going a little the second day. Tony is an experienced captain and very good fisherman...knows the area and how to fish it.

This was our second time fishing with Captain Tony in the past six months. This time was even better than the first. Not only is Captain Tony a great guy, but he really does treat you like a friend in addition to showing you the ropes of flats fishing, regardless of your skill level. That's not even to mention the... More

We did not catch a lot but what we did were quality. Both landed a good size shark and some bait fish. Took me 3 tries to hook a shark but Tony talked me to success. Also hooked a small barracuda. Both of us were novice fisher but will definitely return to Tony next year. Expert instruction and interpreting. Highly... More

Wow! What a fantastic day on the water! We got to fish in various spots, and even got a brief eco-tour of the mangroves which were amazing to see up close. We may not have reeled in numerous fish on our trip due to our lack of experience with backcountry fishing (jigging) and the weather patterns which affected the variety... More

This is the 3rd year that I have fished with Tony. It was like seeing an old friend again. In December you are really at the mercy of the water temp & weather for game fish. We went ahead and did some jigging and had quite a bit of action.

Let's be clear...Tony knows what he is doing, and is a great guide. He's personable, knowledgable and safe. My son, 25, and I booked a morning, half day trip during our family Christmas vacation. For anyone who has not chartered around KeyWest before, it is common to start out bait fishing, especially if you are going to try for shark.... More

My wife and I went fishing in the flats with Capt. Tony during our recent trip to Key West. We had a great time and will go back again for sure. Capt. Tony was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the area, the environment and the fishing. We highly recommend him.

My dad and I took a quick trip to fish Key West. Went out with Tony and had a blast! Super knowledgeable about tides, feeding patterns, and techniques to land as many hits at possible. Highly recommend using Tony. I plan to fish with Tony for all my future trips
