After 16 years of professional fishing, Ranger Boats pro Mark Courts was named Cabela's National Walleye Tour Angler of the Year after a season highlighted by consistent placement in the Top 25 at each event.

Courts clinched the title at the Sept. 17-19 NWT Championship event at Devils Lake, N.D.

"Winning means the world to me, to put it plain and simple," Courts said in a statement. "To finally get it after 16 years, it just means the world."

"I'm running the 620FS with an Evinrude G2 on the back," he said. "That package, by far, was the best-performing boat on tour this year. Whether it was big water or making long runs, that combination was a huge success. But it comes back to efficiency on the water."
