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.  






We have been having some very good weather lately with light winds and the fish have been cooperating.  The spanish mackerel have been doing extremely well along the beaches and around the Cape Lookout area.  We are still seeing cobia being caught inshore as well.  Still have some of those large 8 to 12 lb bluefish around the Hook of the Cape and on some of the flats as well.  A little farther offshore at some of the inshore wrecks and reefs there are good numbers of 8 to 15 lb king mackerel being caught as well as a few dolphin that have pushed closer to the beach since the water temperatures have heated up.  Offshore there are still good numbers of dolphin, whall, tuna as well as billfish.  The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament is going on this coming week.  Looks like the weather will be very good for the tournament this year.
