LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS WEEKENDS VENUE – WHEELER LAKE
DECATUR, Ala. – The last time the Elite Series came to Wheeler Lake was in mid June, 2011, and David Walker won with a four-day total of 63 pounds, 10 ounces. None of the Elite Series anglers think it will take that much weight to win this year when the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Elite at Wheeler Lake begins here Thursday.

MOMENTUM IS BUILDING!
As we get ready for a launch tonight at Wheeler Lake Carl comes off back to back TOP 50’s and you can feel the momentum building. His made some good decisions and is sitting 66th in the Angler of the Year race, he must remain in the Top 70 AOY to qualify to fish the Elites in 2017 and a Top 30 this year will see him fish the Bassmaster Classic.
Prefish has been tough but Carl has dialed into some quality fish. The word from Anglers via bassmaster.com is Wheeler Lake is not fishing as good as it can and that 15 pounds a day will put you at the pointy end of the ladder. With less than a week between Wheeler and Bull Shoals/Norfork both the physical and mental fitness of Anglers will come into play, being able to adapt to changing conditions could also be key with a weather front coming through.
Tonight Carl will be taking off around 9:15pm Aussie time or 6:15am USA time.
