Wheeler Leaves no Questions
Wheeler established a commanding lead on Day 1 with a 21 pound, 15-ounce limit and led throughout the tournament. Asked at what point today he felt comfortable with his catch, he answered, "When Scott weighed in -- that was when I felt comfortable."
Wheeler, who is the youngest Forrest Wood Cup champion in history, used a big array of baits, focusing mostly on current breaks up the Chattahoochee River and on bass hanging around bluegill beds.
