Saw plenty of shark, tarpon, etc. Tony is very knowledgeable and and walks you through the different steps needed for each different type of fish.... More

I've been fishing with Tony for years. He is so good and so much fun that every year I go two days to KW just to fish with him. If you go to KW and don't fish with him you are making a mistake. His wife also runs a great charter for all other water activities.

My wife and I made a trek to The Keys for some relaxation and a little fishing. Now I am a passionate NW Salmon/Steelhead guy so fishing the flats for something, anything I could catch on a fly rod was an entirely new experience for me. My wife and I booked a trip with Capt Tony and from the onset,... More

1st time flats fishing, a big change from deep water West Coast Tuna!! Capt Tony is a great teacher even working with poor anglers!! Tony managed to put us on many fish and we were able to boat and release a few.

Our group fished with Tony for 4 days. This was our fourth time fishing with him overall. While the fishing was challenging and conditions were not perfect Tony worked hard and did everything he could to put us on the fish each day. We ended up landing a bunch of great fish including Tarpon, Permit and Barracuda. We always enjoy... More

We had a blast fishing early in the morning with Captain Tony. He put us on big tarpon and some barracuda. He is very knowledgeable and friendly, I would recommend fishing the flats with this guy. Thank Captain.

After getting my grand slam with capt. Tony last May I am back to learn how to fly fish. Tony put me on plenty of fish. My first day ever fly fishing and I caught my first bone fish with a fly rod. Then I caught a permit on a spinning rod with a crab and then back to fly... More

I've fished with a fly rod for 30 years extensively throughout the U.S., Bahamas, Mexico and Belize. Anthony is one of the most experienced, professional guides I've ever met and fished with. Anthony runs a great boat with top of the line gear, ready to fish. His level of expertise with Permit, Tarpon, Bonefish, Barracuda and Sharks all on the... More

This was my third trip with Captain Tony and every time I go out it makes me want to come back more! We've done different things every time and I can't speak more highly of Tony, his fishing skills and his ability to have a good time. He knows where the fish are and knows how to put you on... More
