Meet Jason Willis, Kayak Angler Solutions ProStaff

Jason Willis, Kayak Angler Solutions ProStaff

I’m a professional firefighter in Southwest Louisiana. I’ve been in the fire service for several years and I enjoy serving the public. I married my best friend in 2014 and together we have a large family that is continuously growing with grandchildren. Doing this would be very difficult to do without the support of my wife and family. We are thankful that God has blessed us in so many ways.

In 2015 I began to kayak fish and fell in love with the sport. There is just something about kayak fishing that brings you so much closer to the outdoors than what larger bigger boats do. I think it is how a kayak doesn’t disturb the serenity of nature like the larger boats do. I took notice early on how fast the kayak fishing industry was growing and knew that eventually I would want to be a part of the growing industry. In 2019 I formed Kayak Angler Solutions, LLC (KAS) and began building a brand that I hope to see become a leader in the kayak fishing industry.

As an angler I have fished competitively in Kayak Bass Fishing, Kayak Bass Bracket Tournament, Hobie Bass Open Series, 5Live, and Bassmaster’s Kayak Nation. One of the best parts about traveling to these tournaments is getting to see the anglers that I know so well and getting to meet new people in our sport. Some of the best friendships that I’ve made have been with my fellow anglers.
