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 winds just don't want to leave up alone here lately.  With the winds averaging 15-20 for the last week it has made it hard to get out and catch much in the ocean.  There have been some decent red drum fishing back in the marshes using natural bait.  There have been a large population on bonnet head sharks back in the sound as well.  There has been some speckled trout and a few flounder inside.  Hopefully the winds will subside and we can get back in the ocean to take advantage of some of the Spanish mackerel and bluefish along the beaches and the amberjacks on the offshore reefs.

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!
