Palm Beach Fishing Guide

Palm Beach Fishing Guide invites you to explore the inshore saltwater estuaries and freshwater lakes systems with one of the most knowledgeable captains around.

Get your hands on Snook, Jack Crevalle, Shark, Barracuda, and Tarpon. Palm Beach Fishing Guide and Capt. Danny gladly fish with the novice anglers and younger anglers from 9 years old and up, along with seniors and seasoned professionals. Besides saltwater fishing, Capt. Danny also fishes freshwater, targeting elusive Largemouth Bass, Peacock Bass, as well as the notorious Clown Knife Fish. For freshwater fishing, you will need to obtain your own fishing license by calling FWC or online on their website.

Everyone is welcome on a 23’ Travis bay boat, which was overhauled in 2017 and comes powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. This vessel is outfitted with a wireless trolling motor, quality electronics, and an array of professional accessories.

On your day out, you will be provided with Shimano reels, G.Loomis rods, X Generation custom rods, and other equipment by Pradco Fishing, Power Pro Line, DOA Lures, and Owner Hooks.

Captain can pick you up anywhere from Boynton Beach up to Riviera Beach.

Scroll down the page and take a look at the captain’s bio! Besides his passion for taking people fishing, he is an advocate for the fisheries and recreational anglers’ rights. He loves teaching and always works hard to make sure you have a fun and safe time on the water fishing, taking pictures of your catch, and building memories to cherish for a lifetime.
