We Inspire Young Bass Fishermen To Develop Their Love Of The Sport

The Wheeler Fishing Foundation was founded by Jacob Wheeler, a renowned bass fishing champion, to advocate for the sport of fishing and relieve the financial burden it can place on college students with limited disposable income.

By hosting a variety of tournaments and events with no entry fees, we hope to inspire these young college students to hone their craft and compete against other rising stars in the world of competitive fishing, without worrying about expensive fees and equipment costs.

About Jacob Wheeler

In 2010, Wheeler finished 1st place in his first FLW Outdoors BFL division level tournament and continued to qualified for the 2011 BFL All-American.

In 2011, Wheeler made history as the youngest angler, 20 years old, to win the BFL All-American and he won with a wire-to-wire win.

In 2012, his rookie year on tour, he dominated the competition with a wire-to-wire win at the FLW Outdoors Forest Wood Cup and entered the record books again as the youngest angler to win. Currently he is a 5x Major League Fishing Champion, 2x Bassmaster Elite Series Champion, and FLW Super Champion.

Wheeler's winning ways have continued through the 2020 season where he has surpassed $2,000,000.00 in tournament winnings.Jacob Wheeler is a fishing phenom and continues to prove that he will be a fierce competitor in years to come in the sport of bass fishing.

He and his wife Alicia are so excited to have been able to start the Wheeler Fishing Foundation in 2021 to share their love of the outdoors and fishing with others.
