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.  




Since Hurricane Matthew came through, things are getting back to where they were before the storm here in the Morehead City area.  The large false albacore have showed up in good numbers just along the beaches this week.  The water is dingy and dirty, but there is plenty of bait around the inlets and beaches.  You will need to use larger lighter colored flies because the bait is much larger than before the storm.  The speckled trout bite is still continuing to be pretty good with nice 2 to 3 lb specs being caught. We are also seeing very good catches of king mackerel  from the beach to the offshore reefs.  I just had some dates canceled if anyone want to give it a try.  October 26, 27.28,29,30,31 and Nov 2nd.  Those are prime fishing dates for just about anything you want to fish for. captjoesinfo@yahoo.com or 252-240-2744.
