Our trip with AWS was far and away the highlight of our trip to Key West. My wife has never been out on a boat fishing, and this was my first time on the flats. Captain Tony took these factors into consideration and made sure we both had a blast! My wife still raves about her lemon shark that she... More

This was my first time flats fishing and I cant wait to go back in a couple of months and hook up with Tony and do it again. His knowledge, expertise and patience are second to none. He had us close to and reeling in fish most of the day. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a great... More

I had a sensational charter trip with AWS Charters on the gorgeous Key West flats. You cannot go wrong with Tony. He is a superb guide. He is professional, easy going, patient and most knowledgable. He is also a perfectly cool guy to have conversation with over the course of the day. And to top it all off he put... More

My wife and I had been wanting to fish the flats in Key west for a long time. We chose Cap't Tony Skinner with AWS charters and could not be happier that we did. Tony's knowledge of the area and fishing skills are second to none, but most importantly Tony is a patient, engaging and fun guy. Without question one... More

Met Tony at 6 am on April 21 for 6 hours! The tarpon had been biting early, but the wind picked up and no bites. Saw the most beautiful sunrise of my life, though, and glad I was awake to enjoy it! Tony steered to between some mangrove covered islands, where I landed these two beauties and a 5 to... More

I've been fishing for 30 years, and can honestly say this was the best fishing trip I've ever had. Captain Tony took the wife and I out for a 3/4 day trip. We left the dock at 6:10 in the morning. I was hooked onto a huge tarpon at 6:20. My wife hooked onto her first tarpon shortly after. She... More

We took the 3/4 day trip and were extremely satisfied! Tony is incredibly knowledgable and went out of his way to help us fish as well as spot animals (stingray, dolphin, sea turtles, sharks, etc). We each caught a tarpon first thing in the morning and then saw many more fish in the shallower waters. Definitely recommend this trip and... More

Capt. Tony made our trip fishing in the Keys, one of the best experiences of my life. His knowledge and ability to locate the fish and the right means to make the catch, made for one of the most rewarding and productive days fishing I've ever experienced. We caught every species we went after, including a prize Tarpon. I'll see... More
