Jay Przekurat

Wisconsin’s Youngest Bassmaster Elite Series Angler – Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 2:00 PM (Room C)

Talking about my journey throughout my early years fishing locally and competing up to when I decided to try and qualify for the Elite Series. I will also share some of my favorite ways to dissect new bodies of water and become successful across the nation.


Jay Przekurat started bass fishing at a very young age and little did he know that his passion for the sport would grow at such a fast rate.

Since age 2, when Jay first held a rod and reel, he fell in love with fishing. At the age of 11 is when Przekurat starting competitively fishing with his father and that’s when things started to take off. Once he become old enough to drive a boat, he competed in most all local bass tournaments when he could. At the age of 18 is when Jay began to win and win a lot. Competing on the Wisconsin Bass Team Trail he has accounted for multiple team of the year titles in 2020 and 2021 as well as a two time Wisconsin State Team qualifier. He is also a Wisconsin Bass Classic winner on the Madison chain in 2019. When Przekurat started doing well is when he realized that he should take his talents to the national level outside of the Midwest.

When he made it down south for his first season as a co angler in 2019 Przekurat won his first major tournament a Bassmaster Open on Grand Lake in Oklahoma. He then Followed that win up with yet another one in 2020 as a co angler on Lay Lake in a Bassmaster open. That was when he had the funding to make the jump to the Pro side and fish the Bassmaster opens as a boater in 2021. In his first year Przekurat finished well enough in all three Bassmaster opens to place second in the points race qualifying for the Bassmaster Elite Series. One of the youngest to ever make the Elites, Jay is here to tell everyone about his journey up to this point.
