We are a family founded and run business with over 70 years experience in the outdoor industry. Captain Mike Evans began guiding in the early 1970's and established himself as an industry leader. He remains one of the longest continual guides in our area with nearly 50 Years in the business. As an original member of the Southern Kingfish Association he helped to bring the excitement of competitive angling to the Golden Isles. Regarded as a foremost authority on inshore saltwater fishing he remains a staple in conservation innovation and tournament organization in our area. He is a United States Coast Guard Masters License holder. He spent more than thirty years teaching the finest maritime law enforcement officers in the United States before retiring in 2017.
Captain Carl Evans joined his father in 2005 after first obtaining his United States Coast Guard OUPV license then finally his Masters Coast Guard License. Fishing is in his blood and will always be so. Guiding for the last 15 years part time while serving his community and nation as a police officer and eventually a federal
agent, in 2020 Carl decided to dedicate himself fulltime to professional angling and the family business.
Flatwater Outfitters looks forward to providing the most enjoyable and memorable experience possible. We pride ourselves on our philosophy of not offering a service we wouldn't be excited to book ourselves. Memories and lasting relationships with our clients drive our dedication to providing the best possible service!
