James Hall shares his vast fishing knowledge from growing up fishing with his grandfather to his 20+ years as a B.A.S.S. Editor.

James has been an avid angler since graduating from diapers to Spiderman underwear. Growing up on the banks of Texas’ Lake Arrowhead, he learned to catch catfish and crappie from his grandfather. Eventually, he graduated to bass fishing, which sparked not only a lifetime passion, but his career. James has worked for B.A.S.S. for 20+ years and is currently the Editor-In-Chief of Bassmaster Magazine. He has caught fish in 12 different countries and has landed more than 200 different species of fish. Still, he spends free time targeting his childhood favorites: shooting crappie jigs under docks and trotlining for channel cats.
