Flats fishing trip - great time

Tony is a great guide and fun to fish with. He really works hard to find the fish for his customers. Highly recommended AWS.

Capt. Tony is very knowledgeable and patient. We were new to flats fishing and he put us right where the fish were. My husband caught a 6 foot nurse shark. What a beauty. Highly recommended. Great trip!

This was our first trip to the Keys so naturally we needed to do some fishing. We couldn't have picked a better guide than Captain Tony! I consider myself an experienced surf fisherman and my fiance considers herself an experienced surf fishing observer but both of us were brand new to flats fishing and sightfishing. Captain Tony did an excellent... More

I went bone fishing with captain tony in June and had a blast. We reeled in over 5 bonefish. Every year me and my buddy fish with tony and it's extremely fun. Best flats guide in the world. He books up fast so call him before you head down to key west.

I've been fishing the flats with Anthony Skinner for over 5 years and I don't use any other guide. Anthony tries really hard to give the best fishing experience and for the first time this year I was able to get a "slam" - tarpon, permit and bone in the same day. It was awesome! I have several friends that... More

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
