Captain Q and the full-time Cutting Edge crew have been local favorites fishing the Miami area for over 40 years. A reputation takes years to build and just a second to ruin, that’s why on the Cutting Edge there are no boundaries or short cuts. It’s pretty simple, the best Penn equipment, the best Raymarine electronics, reliable Cummins diesel engines, a 45 Hatteras in immaculate condition and a couple of guys that love to fish – it’s that simple. If you’re looking to kite fish for Sailfish, and more, not a problem. We are Quest for the Crest burgundy jacket winners, World Sailfish champions, International Sailfish champions, Miami Billfish champions, Palm Beach Sailfish Club champions, Sailfish Kickoff champions, K-Rock Sailfish champions, Reef Cup Champions and more! We are continually refining our techniques to stay ahead of the competition, and staying ahead of the game is crucial. So for years, the serious fisherman that come to Miami in search of Sailfish call us.
Are you looking to troll? We have everything for that also, Penn International 20, 30, 50 & 70 rods and reels. Whether we’re trolling for Marlin, or other species such as Mahi-Mahi, Kingfish, wahoo or more we have the GEAR and the KNOWLEDGE. Want to drop for Swordfish? We are set up with Two 80 Penn International / Hooker Electric rod and reels for that too, and our biggest fish to date is 600 lbs!
The bottom line is we are ready for you. Tournament? Kids day on the water? Entertaining your best customer? We have you covered. Our priorities are your enjoyment and results.
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.
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 26 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.

On the day of your trip, please show up at least 15 minutes prior to the charter start time. Your return time may not be extended for late arrival.
Once a reservation is set, deposits for single day trips are non-refundable within 72 hours of the charter unless “unsafe weather conditions” prevent the fishing trip from going out.

Captain Q will personally make all decisions regarding refunds for reasons outside of weather conditions. Please note “unsafe weather conditions” will be determined by Captain Q and Cutting Edge Charters only.
