For many, the thought of fishing brings images of a still spring morning with songbirds chirping and a light ripple on the water. The serene tranquility of the moment broken up only by the steady rhythm of an angler using a baitcasting reel to methodically chuck and wind a lure out into a likely looking spot.

If that’s your mental picture of bass fishing, then you obviously haven’t met James Watson, professional angler, but you should because the Waynesville, Mo., pro is the only MLF angler out there that has his own bodyguard and dates only super models. He also has wrestled a giraffe to the ground with his bare hands and has toured with the American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. Oh yeah, and Watson is also Ish Monroe’s twin brother.
