Bassmaster Elite Series Champion Four-time Bassmaster Classic Qualifier Two-time Bassmaster Open Tournament Champion Major League Fishing Tour Competitor
Hi! I’m James Elam.

After six fantastic years on the Bassmaster Elite tournament trail, I’m now a Major League Fishing pro. It wasn’t an easy decision. I had a great time fishing the Elites and Opens and made memories that’ll last forever. I’ll always be thankful for the opportunities B.A.S.S. provided me. 2019 begins an exciting new chapter in my professional angling career.
