James Watson Joins Quantum Elite Pro Fishing Team

TULSA, Okla. – Quantum is excited to announce the addition of James Watson to their decorated team of professional anglers.

James “Worldwide” Watson is a proud former United States Army Drill Sergeant who began his professional fishing career back in 2013. The Miller, Missouri native quickly made a name for himself thanks to his entertaining persona, quick wit, and success on the water.

Watson competes on Major League Fishing’s Bass Pro Tour but he’s found success in FLW and B.A.S.S. competitions as well. Amassing over $500,000 in career earnings regardless of format, including FLW Invitational and Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Open wins.

“I couldn’t be happier to join the Quantum Fishing family,” Watson beamed. “The chance to work with and represent a brand like Quantum is something I take very seriously. Quantum has always made incredible products and I’m excited to start slinging buzzbaits and spoon-jacking big bass with the high-speed Smoke S3!”


Watson’s affinity for power fishing highland reservoirs is second only to his love of harassing his now Quantum teammate, Matt Lee.

“Quantum is excited with the addition of James Watson to our elite Pro Staff,” said Quantum Brand Manager, Balay Hartman. “James is known for his big personality and has skill to match. We think he is a great fit with our brand and our team of amazing Quantum Pros. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
