Our own Pro Jacob Wheeler rocked the fans at Gwinnett Center Arena with a monumental catch of 21lb 15oz, giving him a 5lb 6oz lead over his closest competition. Using his G. Loomis rods and Shimano reels, Wheeler was able to catch five giant largemouth to weigh in a bag of fish few thought was even possible on Lake Lanier.
The event is the FLW Tour Championship, one of the most prestigious events in all of bass fishing. If ALFC Pro Jacob Wheeler can hold on for the win, he will walk home with a cool $500,000 paycheck. His career will immediately be launched into instant bass fishing stardom, as one of the exclusive members to have ever won a Forrest Wood Cup.
