Jacob Wheeler started the final day in 2nd place just 1-6 behind Wil Hardy. His co-angler Ronald Flamisch boated the first keeper between the duo and then Wheeler joined the party and landed his first. He started the day with a 2 to 2 1/2-pounder. It didn't take long to boat his second and third keepers. In fact, he hooked up on back-to-back casts.
His third was the biggest of the morning, but if he wants to win today then it may need to be his smallest at the end of the day.
Flamisch now has two keepers and needs one more to fill his limit. He started 6th, just 1-4 behind.
