Jason Przekurat Bio
Jason Przekurat “Shuh-Ker-Rit” grew up fishing the Wisconsin River at a very young age. Little did he know that those early days, honing his skills, would now pay off into achieving a fishing resume that many would only dream about.

Since 1995, when Przekurat started his tournament career, he took it upon himself to become a student of the game. He says that every day on the water is a learning experience. Never satisfied is the approach he takes. Always thinking he could be better.

Jason’s dream became reality in 2007 when he turned full-time as a professional walleye fisherman. Here a just some of the accomplishments he’s earned along the way.

The first major came in 2000, winning the MWC World Walleye Championship on the Mississippi River. Then in 2007, he won the FLW Walleye Tour event in Red Wing, MN. Jason is a 2 Time winner of the prestigious FLW Walleye Tour “Angler of the Year” award. He won it in 2003 and again in 2007 along with the Ranger Cup award. His biggest title yet came in 2016, when he won the prestigious National Walleye Tour Championship on Lake Oahe in Mobridge, SD.
