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.  




With the cooler NE winds that have been blowing this week, there has been a large number of baid pods showing up along the beaches and the Spanish mackerel, bluefish and some false albacore have been very active.  Plenty of surface feeding Spanish, blues and albies have been going at it for the last few days.Fly fishermen and casters as well have been doing extremely well casting to breaking and surface feeding fish.  The bait seems to be  glass minnows and anchovies.  There have also been larger numbers of king mackerel showing up along the reefs and wrecks just off the beach.  Speckled trout and red drum have been doing much better with these cooler days as well.

 It was a very nice day today.  Fished with the Milgrams today and managed to catch a small cobia that will make for great cobia bites!
