Jason Williamson grew up in Aiken, SC where at a young age he began to develop a true passion for the outdoors. He grew up fishing ponds near his home after school and spent most of his weekends on the lake fishing with his father. His true passion for fishing and his strong will to compete has lead him to fishing for a living. After being very successful on a local level he decided to take the next step and compete in the Bassmaster opens in 2006 where he won two boats and had six top 20’s out of 10 events. He found himself qualified for the Bassmaster Elite Series. In 2007 Williamson started his Elite Series campaign and since has become a 2 time Elite Series champion, 2 time Bassmaster Classic Qualifier and to date has won over $900,000. Although his career has kept him busy he still enjoys time with family and when not fishing loves going to the races. Jason and his wife Brittany and their children also love grilling out and spending time in the mountains. Jason credits a lot of his success to strong family support and great sponsors. As J-Will would say, "I am truly blessed beyond belief".

First of all I would like to say what a lake. This is in my opinion the best lake in the country. Texas over the years has been so good to me, I love Texas. This was our second largest event of the season and I was able to make it to championship Sunday. This was one event that I can say I made a lot of the right choices on the water. Day one went as planned and I had 19 lbs. fishing out deep with my buckeye jig. Day two about 1pm I only had 11 lbs. and decided to abandon my deep stuff and went shallow. Within one hour I had 24 lbs. flipping cypress trees and I must say this was one of the best decisions of my career. If I had not have made this decision I would have been going home after day two, instead I was sitting in 4th place going into day 3. Day three was a little tuff for me only catching 15 lbs. but I scrambled around and caught one big one that kept me in the hunt for the final day.With a day off before the finals the storms rolled through leaving us with hard winds straight out of the north which really made it nearly impossible for me to fish the same areas I had been. The final day rolls around and I ran all new water in search of five big ones to give myself a shot at winning the event. I caught a lot of fish throughout the day but never caught any big ones. I ended up with 12 lbs. and finishing 12th place which moved me back up to 4 in the angler of the race.
