Jacob Wheeler isn’t about to concede this tournament to James Elam. And he just showed why. A 4-pound largemouth bass had him screaming and fist-pumping after he lipped it into the boat. That fish has him up to about 15 1/2 pounds. Wheeler is running-and-gunning, spending very little time on each spot, but catching a bass on about every place he stops.
Wheeler has a stellar history on blueback herring lakes. He’s showing that Lake Chatuge is no exception.
