No trip to Key West is complete until you experience a totally unique fishing trip with A.W.S. Charters.  Let Capt. Anthony W. Skinner introduce you to the thrill of sight fishing in knee deep water or less (ideal fishing for the person who suffers sea sickness).  It is not uncommon to see 100 pound tarpon or sharks so large their dorsals are seen slicing through the water.  What makes this fishing a one of a kind experience is seeing the fish take the bait, then the fight that will leave you breathless and the eventual release of your trophy fish.


Capt. Anthony is skilled and prepared for both fly fishing and spin fishing.  Beginners and seasoned anglers alike, he will teach you everything you need to know to reel in the big ones.  So climb aboard A.W.S. Charters and he will guarantee you a wonderful day on the water.          Capt. Anthony Skinner

My love and passion combines both hunting and fishing. In these shallow waters, stealth is of the utmost importance. Whether fly fishing or spin fishing, this is a must do!

Sight fish for giant Tarpon, cruise the edge of a flat, bone fish in ankle deep water along a pristine sand patch, or wait until you see the unmistakable tail of a Permit suddenly appear as he dips down to eat something on the bottom.

These are all sights and experiences you can expect to have on a fishing trip with A.W.S. Charters!

This type of fishing is ideal for the fisherman who want continuous action.  Perfect for kids, first time fisherman or action seeking professionals.  Backcountry fishing is dome in channels and close to mangrove islands (imagine a highway for fish).  We use several methods to get the fish within casting range.  We will catch tarpon, jacks, barracudas, groupers, sharks, and blue runners.

Super Skiff Pro 16

The 16' Super Skiff Pro is the most widely used and respected boat in flats fly fishing today. The Super Skiff was the first boat specifically developed for stalking wary Bonefish on the shallow flats–earning its reputation as the quietest, stealthiest, best poling boat on the planet. This well equipped skiff accommodates up to 4 people.

Flats fishing

My fishing experience began as a kid fishing for trout, reds and flounder in Galveston Bay, Texas.  I Moved to Vermont in my teens and fly fished for trout in streams and rivers there.  This was nice, however, I had already been spoiled with the memory of the power of saltwater fishing.  While attending my first year of college, 17 years ago, I came to Key West for Spring Break, and like many others, I stayed.  During that trip I hooked a 2 foot barracuda on a fly.  The lightning speed and aerial show he gave was astounding and within 3 months, I had a kayak and fished any time I could. This too was wonderful fishing but I could not reach the expansive flats on the Gulf.  I bought my boat new in 1993 and have been fishing ever since.  So with a lifetime of fishing and 17 years locally, I know where the fish prowl.  Trust me to guide you to your Key West trophy.
