Flat Out Guide Service provides fishing trips for inshore and nearshore species along the Intercoastal Waterway including beautiful St. Catherine’s Sound and the surrounding islands of coastal Georgia. Captain Tony Gaskin’s goal is to provide an enjoyable fishing experience for everyone, from serious anglers to families.

Capt. Tony has been fishing these waters for over thirty years, so he knows his way around the best fishing grounds. He can take you to all the local secret spots and honey holes to maximize your time on the water!

You’ll go out on his brand new 23’ Sportsman bay boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4.2 SHO engine, which will get you where you need to be in no time! The boat can accommodate up to 4 people who can all fish at the same time.

The captain will have Denali rods and Penn reels for your convenience, so you don’t have to worry about equipment. Licenses are included in the price.

You’ll be targeting a variety of species, including Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Whiting, and Flounder. Capt. Tony will be happy to clean your catch upon your return to the docks so you can take it to the table.

Kids over 5 are welcome, and you’re guaranteed to have some family fun. If you’re booking a trip for multiple days, Flat Out Guide Service offers lodging right on the water. We are happy to arrange lodging and meals separately..You can ask your captain about anything you need.

There’s a cooler and ice on board, but make sure to bring your own food and drinks for your refreshment. Bring some sun protection and dress appropriately so you can be comfortable on board.

All that’s left to do now is to decide on the adventure you’d like to have and you’re ready to explore the productive Intercoastal Waterway!

I have fished all my life growing up in coastal Georgia. I got more pleasure out of being on the water than playing sports. Every day is a learning experience and I look forward to the next bite with excitement for myself and my clients. There is no better place to make a lifetime memory with friends and loved ones. I take great pride in sharing and providing that experience for all. I have been a Professional Tournament Angler for the past four years, competing in Redfish Tours throughout the Gulf Coast and up to the Carolinas. I enjoy sharing my knowledge to help fishermen become better Anglers.
