Capt. Anthony Skinner Key West, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Key west fishing charters starts with AWS Charters. Key West flats fishing is like no other fishing in the world. In Key West, we are surrounded by miles and miles of pristine flats, crystal clear water, mangrove islands, wading birds, birds of prey and an abundance of fish willing to take a well-placed fly or lure.

Captain Anthony Skinner will be your guide as you search the Flats of Key West for your next big catch. Capt. Tony has fished throughout the Bahamas, Mexico and Central America with both fly and spin rods. Capt. Tony has had a passion for fishing since catching his first Trout when he was just 4 years old. He has fished the Key West area for over 20 years and became a full-time Key West flats fishing guide in 1999. Capt. Tony is Orvis-endorsed and associated with Sage, Winston, Abel, Rio, Scientific Anglers, Shimano, Star rods, Power Pro and a host of other great companies.

Fishing trips with Capt. Tony take place in Key West but could end up venturing to fishing spots around Fleming Key, Geiger Key, Big Coppitt Key, Dredgers Key, and many other wonderful locations in the Western Florida Keys area.

Capt. Tony has a beautiful 16-ft Dolphin Super Skiff with a 70hp Yamaha 4 stroke engine powering her. This vessel is perfect for fishing the flats and backcountry of Key West.  You will find all the necessary safety and navigational equipment on board. She features a poling platform and a casting platform for easy casting.  

We offer 4, 6, and 8-hour flats fishing trips that provide you with tackle, rods, reels, bait, and a fishing license. We provide fly fishing equipment as well in case you would like to try this wonderful method of fishing.

When you’re flats fishing in Key West, you have a great chance of a Grand Slam with either a spin or fly rod. A Grand Slam is catching Tarpon, Permit and Bonefish all in the same day. While you are fishing for the big 3, there is a host of other species you will encounter and catch, including Sharks, Barracudas, Snapper and Jack Crevalle.

AWS Charters with Captain Anthony Skinner invite you to experience the best flats fishing Key West has to offer. Book a trip with us today to get started on your fishing charter adventure!
