Capt. Joe Shute
Capt Joe has been navigating these waters ever since 1985, allowing him to provide a great fishing experience for you and your crew. Retiring from over 21 yrs as a retail bait and tackle owner, Capt Joe continues to run his fly fishing store (since 1996), his charter boat guide service (since 1987), and manufactures offshore sportfishing lures. Check out the links we have below for more information.  



Just a new note, the first bluefin tuna of the year was caught just outside of Cape Lookout yesterday.  The bluefin was around 75 inches.  Hopefuly this will be an early start to the bluefin season.  There are a few boat out looking today, hopefully we will get a few more caught. Fishing just continues to get better now that the water temperatures have finally started to fall some.  The flase albacore fily fishing along the beaches has just been extremely good.  Large numbers of the bigger albies have been showing up off the beaches behind the shrimp boats. Fishing for them with simking lines and larger flies has been working very well.  THe surface feeding albies have been making appearances in both Beaufort Inle and the Hook at Cape Lookout.  The king mackerel fishing has been very good on many of the reefs in the 12 to 15 mile range out of Beaufort Inlet.  Kings in the mid teens to the mid 40's are being caught in large numbers using live menhaden and cigar minnowsl  We have even managed to catch dome using the fly rods as well.  Speckled trout and red drum are continuing to get better as well.
