We couldn't have been more pleased to have booked with Capt Tony! He was able to handle an expert customer and a beginner fisherman all while keeping us both entertained. The eight hour trip was filled with an array of catches including an 80 lb tarpon, a 150 lb lemon shark as well as some jack crevalles and a blue... More

Great day out with Tony, he works extremely hard to help you learn fishing the flats. Hooked up with some nice fish and missed on my part many more. Fun day!!!

Hired Tony for a four hour trip. He was great with both me and my son. At first we thought the boat was too small but it didn't take long for us to realize that anything bigger would have been a mistake. He got us in to super shallow water just off of several ledges which allowed us to cast... More

Not being a fisher, I wasn't looking forward to 4 hours of it. But Captain Tony made it so much fun. He was a great teacher for me, and left my husband alone to fish. Tony worked hard to locate the fish so we could have fun. Husband caught 2 sharks and a barracuda. We released them, of course, but... More

Fished with tony on moday March 10th. It was the first time on the flats for my nephew and I. What a great time we had! We will definitely be back and tony is the guy we will go with. He was great, his knowledge of the water and fish, his patience with us "greenhorns" to the flats, and his... More

My husband & I both love fresh water fishing. A friend recommended that we try bone fishing. We have been coming to Key West for 5 years and this was our first time to fish the flats. The afternoon is one of the highlights of our trip this year and an experience we plan to repeat with each visit to... More

We met Tony at the dock at 7:00 a.m. and he was raring to go. His friendly, professional attitude made us immediately at ease. I've done a lot of bass fishing but always dreamed of fighting a big fish. Tony made my dream come true. Within 20 minutes of starting I was on an 80 lb Tarpon. About 30 minutes... More

Tony took us under his wing and took us to the flats in KW and consistently put us on big to huge Barracuda...they were a little finiky this day due to the cool weather but we again hooked-uo consistently. Then he got us into a couple of very nice sharks to end the day which he extended just to be... More

I came off a cruise ship in January with all my gear for a half day of fishing. When I learned that the bonefish were down due to a big temperature drop, I was disappointed.... Then Tony took over and we went fly fishing on mudding rays. I caught my first Jack Crevalle and had a great time and a... More

My wife and I went out with Captain Tony back in December and had an awesome time. Per our request, we took a good run at some tarpon even though it wasn't peak season. We didn't get lucky, so we switched gears and Tony got us each on a barracuda and a lemon shark. My wife didn't have much experience... More
