Jacob Wheeler vs. Harold Allen

Getting tagged with the label “phenom” before your 21st birthday could be stressful for some people. For FLW Pro Jacob Wheeler, it was an incentive. Not only did he become the youngest angler ever to win the BFL All-American, he became the youngest angler to score the FLW’s top prize, the Forrest Wood Cup. Today he’ll make his Ultimate Match Fishing debut against a legendary angler who already had 10 Bassmaster Classic under his belt before Wheeler was born. It’s grizzled Texas veteran Harold Allen going head-to-head with phenom Jacob Wheeler on Lake Okeechobee!

Stetson Blaylock vs. Jason Quinn

Just ask FLW pro Stetson Blaylock why he fishes professionally and he’ll tell you “it’s the competition”. Since his FLW Rookie of the Year title in 2009, Blaylock has been a threat to win any event he enters, and today he’ll get all the competition he can handle from Elite Series veteran and 6 time Classic qualifier Jason Quinn. One of these anglers will move on to the quarterfinals… the other will head home. Lake Okeechobee is ready!

So which of these left coast superstars will be left out of the quarterfinals?

Roland Martin vs. Scott Martin

Icon. Legend. Superstar. There’s no limit to the accolades that fit Hall of Famer Roland Martin. He’s won everything there is to win in the sport of professional bass fishing… many of them multiple times.  But the thing he may be most proud of is his son Scott, who as it turns out is also pretty handy with a rod and reel. Today father and son will spend a little quality time fishing on their home water, Florida’s Lake Okeechobee. At stake? Just a little friendly competition and the final spot in the Ultimate Match fishing quarterfinals!
