James Watson otherwise known as JMFW Worldwide, began his fishing career in 2009 in the back of the boat as a co-angler. That same year he earned a trip to the Forrest Wood Cup fishing the FLW Tour.

The following year Watson made the move to the front of the boat while managing his business and professional fishing career.

James Watson resides in Lampe, Missouri right down the road from his hometown of Miller, Missouri. After graduating high school Watson enlisted as a soldier in the U.S. Army. He quickly established himself as an exceptional leader and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant First Class. His favorite time while in the Army was the two years he spent as a Basie Combat Training Drill Sergeant. Watson was honorably discharged in 2001 and began focusing on his real estate career as a sales agent. He purchased and opened a Realty Executives franchise shortly after and has seen great success in the industry with over $100 million in residential home sales. In 2005 and 2006 Watson was the number one sales person for Realty Executives Worldwide.

Watson’s career has taken off since 2009 and has allowed him to make connections with many successful businesses. Watson brings his business skills to the fishing industry whether on the water or working events and shows. He knows what it takes to promote the products of his sponsors. Watson realizes the balance between the fishing side of the sport and the business side and is dedicated to seeing the sport grow in fact; Watson along his colleagues represent the USA in the 2017 World Championship in South Africa pushing bass fishing into becoming an Olympic sport!

In 2013 he retired from Realty Executives and became a full time touring professional. Watson has qualified to fish the Bassmaster Classic, Forrest Wood Cup, PAA events, and the Texas Toyota Bass Classic. He can be found fishing FLW Tour, FLW Costa Series and BASS Open events or filming Major League Fishing shows in addition to educating others on fishing techniques, contributing to corporate speaking seminars, participating in charitable events throughout the year.
