Nitro Boats joins the National Walleye Tour presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s (NWT) as a sponsor for the 2021 season. The partnership comes as the nation’s top walleye anglers prepare for the upcoming season, which is set to begin April 29 on the Missouri River.

“Competitive anglers look to gain any available advantage and Nitro Boats provides the perfect platform for serious anglers,” said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. “The future of competitive fishing is brighter than ever and with the help of dedicated sponsors such as Nitro we will continue to provide one of the best top-level tours in the nation. We would like to welcome Nitro into the NWT family.”

Nitro Boats delivers pro-level performance with proven designs. As part of their partnership with the NWT, Nitro Boats is offering a lucrative contingency program for anglers to boost their winnings at all NWT regular-season events and the championship. Qualified anglers who win or are the highest-finishing Nitro angler placing in the top 10 will receive cash awards.
