Dano Charters - Reel Patience

4281 Warner Avenue
Huntington Beach CA, United States

Captain Dan owns and operates Dano Charters, steering a 33’ Wellcraft boat into close-to-shore and deep sea fisheries alike.

Decades of experience have taught this seasoned seafarer where and when to go hunting for all game swimming around in the SoCal Pacific, ranging from delicious rockfish to humongous sharks. Being a 100 ton licensed captain, he has primarily fished on multiday open party boat trips before starting his own private charter service.

If you want a guide to take you for anything from short local bottom fishing in the Horseshoe Kelp area, Palos Verdes, Huntington or Newport Beach to longer trips around Catalina and San Clemente islands or some die hard trolling action offshore - Dan is your man! Do not hesitate to book with one of the most knowledgeable and affable guides in the area.

Top of the line Shimano and Seeker gear will be provided for your charter, as well as all bait and catch filleting and bagging services, so you can have that delicious after-trip dinner. Any food and drinks may be provided per request.

We really had a great time. Captain Dan taught us a lot about fishing in the area and how to do it successfully. He and his crew went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable on his boat. I really recommend this trip for anyone interested in booking a fishing trip.
