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.  






The fishing continues to be very good here on the Crystal Coast and Cape Lookout area! The false albacore , Spanish mackerel, and bluefish have been doing very well this week.  We have also seen red drum and speckled trout fishing start to pick up.  Unfortunately we are now having to keep a very watchful eye on Hurricane Florence.  The path of Florence is still too far out to know exactly where it will make landfall or whether it will skirt the eastcoast.  Hopefully that will happen and no one will suffer the effects of a major hurricane.  Unfortunately this storm, whether it makes land fall or not will interrupt our fishing starting around Tuesday or Wednesday of this coming week.  We will see high seas and large amounts of wind and rain.  After the storm passed it hopefully will not take very long for the good fishing to pick back up. Good luck to everyone here on the east coast.  Lets hope Hurricane Florence stays offshore and turns to the Northeast and away from land.
