It’s official! Our very own touring FLW Pro Jacob Wheeler has dominated 46 of the best anglers in the world to win the Forrest Wood Cup at Lake Lanier. Wheeler shut the door on the field by catching 11lbs. 15oz. on the final day of the FLW Tour Championship. This gave him a convincing 7lb. 5oz. margin of victory. While other anglers complained of lost fish and shattered dreams, Jacob made the most of his bites and put them in the boat. Without his G. Loomis rods and Shimano reels, he may have faced the same fate as the other competitors. He uses G. Loomis and Shimano for a reason. They get the job done and so did he!
ALFC Pro Jacob Wheeler is now the youngest angler to ever win the Forrest Wood Cup, and the $500,000 pay day that comes with it. From all of us at American Legacy Fishing Copmany, we would like to extend Jacob our sincerest congratulations on a job well done. We are all honored to call you our friend.
