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.  





WEll finally it is starting to feel like albacore season.  Today it is blowing 15-20 out of the northeast and higher gusts.  The northeast is supposed to keep blowing all the way through Saturday.  This should get the albacore starting to show on the surface again and might break them away from the trawlers for a while. I kinda really like the trawler fishing though.  It's good for business in the fly shop.  Plenty of fly line replacements as well as broken rod replacements and new fly reels.  We are starting to see some of the old drum show up on the east beaches and the Cape Lookout shoals have good numbers of spanish mackerel, bluefish and slot red drum to be caught.  The king mackerel fishing continues to be good around the artificail reefs and spots like the Triple Nickel and Northwest Places.  Offshore the wahoo bite continues along with a few dolphin and fair numbers of sailfish.

Oooops! The man in the brown suit won this one!
Joint effort after broken rod. One reeled one held the rod!
