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 dodging rain showers this week but the fishing has been pretty good, especially inshore.  There have been good numbers of large Spanish mackerel inside the inlet and along the beaches along with plenty of bluefish.  there are still red drum back in the marshes along wtih a few flounder.  Just off the beaches a few miles the amberjack fishing continues to be good and there are still spring king mackerel on most of the rocks and reefs in the 6 to 10 lb ranges.
