AWS Charters

AWS Charters invites you to join Captain Anthony Skinner for a one-of-a-kind inshore fishing experience in the Florida Keys. If you’re the least bit interested in sight casting for tarpon, this is bound to be on your to-do list already. Captain Anthony will do his best to provide you with a trip that’s tailored to your individual needs.

His boat is a 16’ Dolphin skiff that’s powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine. This small and nimble vessel is just what you need for a trip to the shallow flats. Its poling platform will make sight casting a breeze, giving you the edge you need.

The local inshore waters have a variety of species to choose from, but the most popular targets are usually Tarpon and Bonefish. Getting the better of a Silver King on the fly is on many an angler’s bucket list. Other species you can find inshore are Permit, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, and more besides.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of any given trip, along with the necessary fishing licenses. Captain Anthony exclusively catch and release trips for popular game species. Be sure to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined, and get ready to hear that reel scream.
