Mark Daniels Jr. quit his job and moved his family across the country to pursue his dream of fishing professionally. Will reality wreck his quest? Watch as Daniels takes on the challenge in season three of Circuit Breaker.
MARK DANIELS JR. has been here before. The last time he was in front of a camera, however, with a rod in his hand and the world watching, the stakes were much different. Daniels, a California native, was chasing opportunity at the 2013 The Bass Federation National Championship on Grand Lake, a nationally televised tournament. He won that event to earn TBF’s “Living the Dream” prize package, which included expense-paid entry into the Walmart FLW Tour.
Historically speaking, most of the anglers who win the “Living The Dream” package keep their day jobs. They give the Tour a shot for a year, or maybe a few years, and then, their curiosity about a full-time tournament career satisfied, ease back into the workaday world of weekend bass tournaments and normal family life.
