About the Captain

Quinton Dieterle
Key Biscayne, Florida, United States
Member since March 2016
Captain Quinton “Q” Dieterle is a native of Miami, Florida, who has fished the area around Miami, the Keys, and the Bahamas all his life. His lifelong passion for fishing was taken to a new level when he was at high school and started working as a mate for the legendary captain John B Dudas. While he was working with John, the team revolutionized kite fishing and live bait fishing for Billfish, giving him an early taste of the innovation needed to become a truly successful sports fisherman. Captain Q has been operating the Cutting Edge from Key Biscayne for more than 26 years, and over this period he has competed successfully in countless Billfish tournaments, gaining over 30 top captain awards. He has won the ‘World Sailfish Tournament’ and has been nominated as a top five captain in the world by “in the Bite Magazine” twice. He is also the captain of the very successful Floridian fishing team, Get Lit.

Started off hot on the Kings then died off as we tried for the Mahi.  It heated back up in the afternoon with more kings, a 42lb Wahoo and even bigger amberjack!  Captain Q and first mate Ryan tried different approaches and it paid off.  Three guys ended our day with stuffed coolers!
