My name is Jeffrey K. Daniels and I started fishing at the young age of three, fishing stock ponds and local lakes for catfish, bass, crappie, and anything that would eat a worm. At the age of twelve I started inshore saltwater fishing in East Galveston bay with my family during summer vacation. After graduating from high school I began my career with the U.S Coast Guard. Living in Anchorage Alaska for three years I Salmon fished during the summer and ran a small trap line during the winter. In 2011 I received orders to the USCGC Dauntless for three years. Not having very much time to fish while at home I would take advantage of the fish calls while I was underway. After the Dauntless I deployed to Bahrain for a year. During My deployment I received orders to Aids to Navigation Team Galveston. After returning back to the Galveston area I decided to start kayak fishing and bought my first fishing kayak, an Ascend FST12. Fishing the first six months out of the Ascend I decided to upgrade to a Hobie PA 12 and have been fishing out of it every since. Fishing is a serious passion for me, and I strive to teach children about the sport so that our outdoor traditions are carried on for generations to come. I am the Author for the Beach Triton fishing report and an active member of the Coastal Conservation Association and the saltwater boys kayak fishing club. I fish the Galveston Bay complex for speckled sea trout, red drum, and flounder with artificial lures.
