We had fished with Donnie before and loved it, his father was no different! Tons of fish, lots of excitement, and Ted was awesome. Can't recommend highly enough. We always stay at Postcards but only to be close them:)

Ted was awesome! He was friendly and knowledgeable about all the fish we caught.... He was able to teach us techniques for each fish we were after. He was patient and I liked that we were supporting someone who grew up on these waters, highly recommend!!

Clean, new, well-outfitted boats with a father and son team that will put you on the fish. We had a really fun day with capt. Ted and caught a variety of fish. He was courteous and very knowledgeable with lots of stories of the "old" keys days. Very fun day, highly recommend Skins & Fins!

He made it easy for my girl to hook her first tarpon ever and gave her man more options. In was able to... More

Great day on the flats for two newbies. Patient and put us on fish immediately. Would recommend for hardcore fishing and for novices. Capt' Ted killed it.

Had an amazing day with Captain Donnie he put me on more tarpon than I could count. If only I could have got them to bite. He also found a flat with a huge school of permit which we did land. Amazing trip I will defiantly be back to fish the flats with Captain Donnie.
