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.

All fish caught on the Cutting Edge are the customer’s fish and will be cut and bagged for you at the end of the trip at no extra charge. 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. All deposits for Bahamas trips are non-refundable once the dates for the trip are set unless the captain deems “unsafe weather conditions”.  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.
