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 it looks like we are going to have nice weather for this coming weekend.  The winds are going to be light and the seas subsiding.  There have been good numbers of large 5 to 12 pound bluefish along the beaches and around the artificial reefs just off the beach.  There are already some Atlantic Bonito around the reefs as well.  There are still some old drum on the eastside of the Cape Lookout Shoals.  Offshore there are good numbers of blackfin and yellowfin tuna along with wahoo and dolphin.
