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.  




Everything is really starting to heat up along the beaches here on the Crystal Coast.  There have been good numbers of false albacore feeding on bait balls from Beaufort Inlet to the eastside of the Cape Lookout shoals.  There are still good numbers of Spanish mackerel and bluefish as well.  The northeast winds have got  the mullet running out of the inlets and down the beaches.  Red drum as well as the king mackerel and a few sailfish are off the beaches and feeding on the mullet.  Offshore the wahoo bite has been just about as good as it gets.  Plenty of wahoo from 20 to 60 lbs are being caught from the Big Rock to the Swansboro Hole area.  Blackfin tuna and dolphin are mixed in as well. Back in the marsh the red drum and speckled trout are doing very well now and should continue to get better.

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!
