About us

At the Wheeler Fishing Foundation, our mission is to work together with our donors and sponsors to host fishing tournaments and other events where bass fishing enthusiasts can compete against the best in the industry, with the potential to win lucrative cash prizes.

As a competitive Bass Fishing Champion, Jacob Wheeler understands the financial burden that fishing can place on college students that are looking to make a potential career out of their fishing skills, due to expensive tournament entry fees, costly equipment, and travel expenses to various fishing industry tournaments. By hosting a variety of tournaments and events with no entry fees, we seek to support the talent of the brightest and best high school and college-level bass fishing amateurs in the sport.
