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.  




Fishing along the Crystal Coast area is continuing to be very good.  the speckled trout fishing continues to be off the charts.  Very nice size 16 to 24 inch speckled trout are being caught both on the beaches and rock jetties as well as still back in the sounds and marshes.  False albacore are still stretching lines all up and down the beach and even inside Beaufort Inlet all the way to the turning basin.  For those of you who want a really big tug on your string, even though you can't harvest bluefin tuna for sale until Jan 2017, they are now just off our coast where they have been in past years.  Bluefin tuna up to 100 plus inches are already being caught off  Cape Lookout and Beaufort Inlet areas. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
