Day 2 leader Jacob Wheeler knew this was a possibility today. In a tournament where he's basically been running and gunning every day, looking for particular sloping banks with particular cover, like gravel and chunk rock, it's now time to look elsewhere.
"I don't have an issue with scrapping everything and doing something completely different," he said in last night's post-weigh-in press conference.
With 90 minutes left to fish, Wheeler has gone searching in pockets off the main river, looking for largemouth bass, instead of the smallmouths, which have surprisingly taken him this far. Wheeler still has time. BASSTrakk shows him trailing leader Ott DeFoe by 4 pounds, 5 ounces.
