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 water temperatures are starting to fall and get cooler along the beach and this means the fishing is starting to pick up.  We are starting to see good numbers of bait fish starting to show up along the beach.  With the bait comes the bluefish, Spanish mackerel and even the false albacore are starting to show up.  Shrimpers working off the beach means excellent light tackle and fly fishing for all sizes of sharks.  King mackerel fishing is starting to pick up around dome of the near shore wrecks and reefs.  The eastside of the Cape Lookout shoals has been one of the best places to look for the kings right now.  Red drum fishing back in the marshes is picking up.  the large numbers of bait fish and shrimp and the cooler water temperatures are helping get the drum more active.  Offshore the wahoo bite is really starting to pick up and should keep going for the next few months.

Nice Tiger shark caught by Carl Setzer Thursday at Cape Lookout!
 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!
