The Captains

Captain Quinton “Q” Dieterle is a native of Miami Florida. He has been fishing the waters off Miami, the Keys and the Bahamas his entire life. Captain Q has been operating the Cutting Edge from his Key Biscayne location for over 30+ years.

Captain “Q” started off fishing with his dad every opportunity he had, fishing the waters of Biscayne bay at a young age and then offshore as he grew up. In high school he began fishing with the legendary Captain John B. Dudas on a local charter boat and that helped propel him to the next level. Working with Captain Dudas as a mate they revolutionized the art of kite fishing and live bait fishing for billfish and other offshore species.

Captain “Q” has had great success over the last 30+ years fishing Billfish tournaments, and has received over 30 top captain awards. He has won the “World Sailfish Tournament” and been nominated twice as one of the top 5 captains in the world by “In the Bite Magazine”. Captain “Q” is also Captain of the Contender One fishing team. Contender One is currently one of the most successful fishing teams in South Florida having recently captured the 2022 highly sought after Quest for the Crest Burgundy Jacked. Captain “Q” was previously captain of the Get Lit fishing team which was also one of the most successful fishing teams in the southeast and keys.

Captain “Q” spares no expense when it comes to catching you the fish of a lifetime. He realizes that every trip demands 100% effort and complete attention to detail. Every customer is his best customer. You will see that in all his crew and the entire Cutting Edge family.

The Cutting Edge is a custom 45′ Hatteras, customized by Captain Quinton Dieterle. It is the most comfortable fishing machine you will ever fish on. It is fast, clean and tournament rigged. A large cockpit with a 100 gallon live well built into the bulkhead and a 50 gallon live well in the deck. The fish box is also built into the bulkhead to preserve space.
The fly bridge and tower are also designed with fishing in mind. The salon is air-conditioned with a large seating capacity and has a flat screen TV and stereo for your enjoyment.
