D&J Fishing Charters offers exciting family adventures for all types of anglers. Captain Danny Quagliato is a 100-Ton Master captain with a lifetime’s worth of expertise fishing all the way from New Jersey to Florida. Whether you’re looking to fish the Intracoastal Waterway, bottom fish over reefs, or cruise the subtropical waters of Palm Beach, Capt. Danny guarantees a memorable day on the water!

Your journey will take place on a classic 21’ Wellcraft fishing boat. This vessel comes with all of the top-quality equipment you need for a successful day, including GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, safety gear, and top-notch fishing tackle. She accommodates 3 guests, including children ages 5 and up, and everyone can fish at the same time.

Capt. Danny offers trips with an opportunity to bottom fish over reefs and wrecks, site-see, and relax. You’ll also be able to troll and drift using either light or heavy tackle, depending on your target species. Some of the fish you’ll be able to catch include King Mackerel, Cobia, Snook, Black Grouper, Triggerfish, and Porgy.

You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to target various Snapper species as well, including Yellowtail, Mutton, and Mangrove Snapper. No matter what you’re going after, you can count on Capt. Danny’s years of experience to put you on top of many of these species.

He’ll provide you with state-of-the-art Okuma, Shimano, and Penn gear but you’re also free to bring your own equipment if that’s what you prefer. Catch cleaning services are also included in the price so you can have your fish filleted and ready for the grill.

Your fishing license is covered by the boat as well, so no need to make any extra stops before your trip. So just arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time and you’re all set.

Member since September 2019
Captain Danny Quagliato grew up in Lincroft, NJ. His childhood revolved around his passion for fishing and boating. He started fishing as soon as he was able to hold a pole in one hand. At 20, he joined the US Navy and started exploring and fishing all over the world. After serving almost 10 years in the Navy, he returned to Lincroft, where his passion for fishing and boating grew even more. In 2011, Capt. Danny decided to trade in the cold waters of New Jersey for the subtropical climate of Palm Beach County, FL. Once arriving in South Florida, he obtained his 100-Ton Master Captain's License and turned his #1 hobby into his dream job.

It was a beautiful day on the water. We trolled for a while with no bites. We switched to bottom fishing and flatlining over the reefs. It was quiet, but we caught a few keepers including a huge triggerfish and a nice size kingfish. Overall a very fun day.
Fun on the intercoastal.
