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

Captain Tony is definitely very knowledgeable in flat fishing. This the first time I tried flat fishing. At the beginning of the trip, there was good amount of fog and cloudy / gloomy weather. Fish were not cooperating. After trying for quite some time, we were not able to convince barracuda or tarpon to bite. Tony recommended going back to... More

What an amazing experience fishing with capt. Tony. He truly knows where to find barracuda.. a lot of them!! We even had opportunities to catch sharks..very cool! The water is so clear and listening to tony call out where the fish are is really awesome. We snagged a few but couldn't land any (barracudas are incredibly strong and insanely fast)... More

We rang up Tony very last minute the night before we wanted to go on a trip and luckily he was happy to take us out on the next morning. The weather conditions hadn't been great for fishing the day before and the next cold front was due to come in within the next 2 days but we were still... More
