Watch Bassmaster LIVE and see the back sides of two anglers fishing from the same front deck. They are Dustin Connell and Jacob Wheeler. Both are good friends and Connell came to his rescue after the previously reported mechanical breakdown of Wheeler.
Wheeler, the more experienced offshore, deep water angler, has taken over boat positioning duties with the trolling motor. The good news is Connell is also on a large school of bass and Wheeler is in the search for those fish. Wheeler already has broken off a keeper.
The two Bassmaster Elite Series rookies are swapping small talk and making the best of their situation. For Connell, his good deed now includes a real-time lesson in deep water bass fishing. For better or worse, each angler has gained a teammate.
