Just a weekend fisherman that’s worked my way to the top level.

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.
