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.  




O.K. folks, the large bait balls are really starting to show up along the beaches and around the Cape Lookout area.  There are large numbers of Spanish mackerel, bluefish and false albacore surface feeding on those bait balls.  Sight fishing has been very good and should only be getting better and I believe we are looking at a great fall fishing season starting to break loose! The inshore fishing for redfish is also picking up.  Yesterday there were good catches of slot and over slot redfish back in the marshes.  We are still seeing good numbers of speckled trout being caught.  Offshore, the wahoo fishing had been just about as good as it gets and should continue for the next few months.Near shore and 10 to 15 miles off the king mackerel and amberjack fishing is also heating up.  Time to get the rods and reels ready for fishing or to book a charter!

Nice Tiger shark caught by Carl Setzer Thursday at Cape Lookout!
 It was a very nice day today.  Fished with the Milgrams today and managed to catch a small cobia that will make for great cobia bites!
