Bio

Jacob Wheeler's success began at a young age in the junior fishing programs where he captured angler-of-the-year and state championship titles, top ten finishes and Junior Bassmaster Classic appearances. In 2010, Wheeler finished 1st place in his first FLW Outdoors BFL division level tournament and continued to qualified for the 2011 BFL All-American. In 2011, Wheeler made history as the youngest angler, 20 years old, to win the BFL All-American and he won with a wire-to-wire win. In 2012, his rookie year on tour, he dominated the competition with a wire-to-wire win at the FLW Outdoors Forest Wood Cup and entered the record books again as the youngest angler to win. Wheeler's winning ways has continued through the 2014 season where he has surpassed $1,000,000.00 in tournament winnings.

Jacob Wheeler is a fishing phenom and continues to prove that he will be a fierce competitor in years to come in the sport of bass fishing.
