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 last few days back in the sounds has been pretty good fishing.  Went to the Pamlico Sound yesterday, fished from 1 to 4 pm and went 5 for 6 bites on old drum with Bob Baldwin. These were Bob's first encounter with the old drum. There are still slot drum back in the marshes as well as a good number of speckled trout.  Along the beach we are now starting to see false albacore show up on bait pods.  There are also still good numbers of Spanish mackerel and bluefish around.  Farther offshore the king mackerel are doing well around some of the rocks and reefs along with amberjacks.  The wahoo bite continues to be good offshore from the Swansboro Hole to the Big Rock.
