Wheeler lands a 5-7

Jacob Wheeler lamented the fact that he was able to cull a 3-pound bass on Friday, but didn’t even catch one that big on Saturday. But he was confident he’d be able to catch one today. He’s done that already with a 5-pound, 7-ounce bass, which tops the 5-1, his previous best of the tournament.

And he’s just getting started, apparently. After adding a 2-9, Wheeler looked over at photographer Gettys Brannon, smiled and said, “They’re going to have to catch ’em today.”
