Nathaniel "Danny" Manigault
Danny Manigault was born and raised in Charleston. In high school he moved to the Union Heights neighborhood of North Charleston. He worked as a mechanic at R & M Industrial Products, and fished whiting, croaker, spots, and sharks as a hobby. When his neighbor told him how he could make a little money on the side crabbing, Danny decided to start crabbing to supplement his full-time job. Retired from R & M, Danny usually hit the Wando River by four each morning to make it back in time to deliver blue crabs to customers in North Charleston.
