Indiana Native Jacob Wheeler has sat at the top of the BassFan World Rankings as the #1 angler for the last three years. 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 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. 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 the event. He then fished the Bassmaster Elite Series for two years and became the first angler in history to win the first two Bassmaster Elite Series events he competed in. In 2019, Wheeler joined Major League Fishing’s Bass Pro Tour where he won Stage Seven on Table Rock Lake and the General Tire World Championship. Wheeler earned his second Bass Pro Tour victory in 2020 at Stage One on Lake Eufaula. Then in 2021, he really impressed by winning three of the seven Bass Pro Tour events: Stage Two, Stage Five and Stage Six. Wheeler also accomplished his lifelong goal winning the title of 2021 Bass Pro Tour Angler of the Year. With all of that said, Jacob’s passion for fishing is something that is hard to match. When he isn’t competing, he also runs a very successful YouTube channel where he spends his time teaching others how to fish and takes viewers on the road with him around the country. If he is not out fishing, you will find him spending time with his wife Alicia and their two children, Olivia, and Hudson.
“With the advancements in technology a lot of fishermen are upgrading to some of the best units out there. I set out a few years ago to run what I thought was the best setup I could to give me an edge at the top level of the sport. Part of that decision was running Boatlogix graph mounts. These mounts are hands down the best mounts that I have ever used, period. From the way they are connected to my boat, to being able to change the angle to the exact position that I prefer, nothing is comparable. If you are looking at stepping up your game look no further than Boatlogix.”– Jacob Wheeler
