Did a full day fishing trip for tarpon with Tony. He was a great guy and a pleasure to hang out with. We both had our tarpon before noon, then went fishing for barracuda and anything else that would bite. We biffed at least a half dozen cuda because we couldn't train ourselves to avoid setting the hook. Overall had... More

Finally after a number of years trying I got my flat slam (grand Slam) fishing with Capt. Tony. He put me on the fish I needed and with great spotting and direction I caught a Tarpon, two Bone fish and a Permit on just 7 casts. The two misses were my a combination of bad casts by me with a...

I've been out with Capt. Tony 3 times in the past with my BFF, but this visit, we had a group of 4, and needed to go out with Ally on her beautiful boat. I have to tell you that fishing with Tony and/or Ally will make your Key West trip special.. one you will never forget. We fished on... More

Just had my third trip in 10 years with Capt. Anthony. Once again batting 1000! This time I took my daughter Carie who wanted to catch a shark. Since she had never fished I asked Anthony to provide an all around experience but we could not leave without a shark. A half hour into the trip she landed a beautiful... More

Tony was outstanding. A fish whisperer, if you will. He knew where they were and what they'd want to bite on. He was also just a great guy to hang out with for six hours; helpful, selfless, and patient. And...he also took a relative novice (my wife) and turned her into a casting and catching maven. If I ever make... More

Had a great time fishing with Tony. My first time fishing the flats. Caught a 40# tarpon early, lost one at least twice that size. Lots of cloud cover made sight fishing the flats a bit tough, but, Tony adapted and we blind casted for barracuda leading to more action. Tony was a pleasure to spend the day with. Really... More

My wife and I enjoyed a morning fishing with Captain Tony last week and we could not have been any happier! Despite tough conditions Tony was able to put us on fish all morning. We hooked several Tarpon and then headed for the flats where we enjoyed good success with barracuda and a really big Permit. I have fished several... More

Captain Tony was very professional and friendly as he directed the fishing tour. He had extensive knowledge of the best fishing spots and fishing techniques to snag the trophy fish that you want. He was always eager to help in any way he could and was happy to teach his fishing tips and tricks. I would highly recommend Captain Tony... More

I fish a lot. I learned a lot about flats fishing today from Tony the owner of AWS. My wife and I had a great day. I caught a big barracuda and got Tarpon hits and permit too. We would recommend AWS to all fishermen! Tony is down to earth and informative. Not a novice guide like the big guide... More

Spent two days fishing with Captain Tony Skinner on the flats around Key West. He worked hard all day to put me on fish and give me a shot at some trophy permit. Caught my first permit, a 12 lb. beauty that make some spectacular runs. We also caught a few very large barracudas which were lightening fast and great... More
