KastKing Signs Walleye Pro Nussbaum

KastKing has once again expanded their elite pro team with the addition of pro fishing phenom Dylan Nussbaum. He will use KastKing WideEye fishing rods built specifically for walleye fishing and KastKing fishing reels in walleye tournament competition in 2019. Dylan Nussbaum age 20, is the youngest person to have ever won the Cabela’s NWT (National Walleye Tour) Championship. Nussbaum bested competitors who have been vying for that title for decades.

The Cabela’s National Walleye Tour offers premier, tour-level competition for walleye anglers across the North. Each event is coordinated and executed by industry professionals with decades of experience in the tournament fishing business.

Nussbaum, a native of St. Mary’s in Elk County located in central Pennsylvania, who has fished tournaments since age nine, fished championship walleye fishing tournament events this year at Baudette, Minnesota, Devil’s Lake, North Dakota, Bay City, Michigan, and Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

“I’m excited to be a part of the KastKing family!” says Dylan Nusbaum.

“I am so excited to begin a long relationship with a rising pro fishing star like Dylan Nussbaum,” says Al Noraker, Director of Product Development at KastKing. “Dylan has already proven to have angling skills and knowledge far beyond his years. His enthusiasm for catching giant walleye is incredible. Don’t be surprised when you see his name at the top of the leader boards throughout the year. Dylan has already been testing and using KastKing WideEye Walleye rods and many different KastKing casting and spinning reels in his preparation for 2019. He is very excited to be using equipment that will allow him to compete at the highest level.”
