Jason Przekurat  
Jason Przekurat grew up fishing the Wisconsin River at a very young age. The Stevens Point, Wisconsin angler started his tournament career in 1995, taking it upon himself to become a student of the game, looking at every day on the water as a learning experience, and always believing he could become better. He won the MWC (World Walleye Championship) on the Mississippi River in 2000. His dream of becoming a full-time professional walleye fisherman became a reality when he won the FLW Walleye Tour event in Red Wing, Minnesota in 2007. The Whitewater Pro is a two-time winner of the prestigious FLW Walleye Tour Angler of the Year Award, earning the title in 2003 and again in 2007, along with the Ranger Cup Award. His next major title came in 2016, when he won the prestigious National Walleye Tour (NWT) Championship on Lake Oahe in Mobridge, South Dakota, and in 2020 when he won the National Walleye Tour Championship again, becoming the first angler win the NWT Championship twice.
