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 even with the high winds that we have had for the last 4 or 5 days the fishing has still been pretty good.  There have been plenty of the larger Spanish Mackerel in the 4 to 6 lb range caught all the way up until yesterday, and they shoul show back up when the winds calm down some.  Yesterday the winds were blowing 20 knots but we were still able to make it up the river and catch some very nice red drum from 24 to 30 inches yesterday.  The water was very dirty so we had to use natural bait, but it worked quite well.  The false albacore should be showing up once again later this week when the winds lighten up.  There is still a huge amount of bait in the ocean.  When the winds let the boats go offshore the wahoo fishing is still very good.
