Wheeler Lake in North Alabama is a popular location for many national circuit tournaments as well as state and national high school and college events with a high number of participants. This tournament activity is in addition to area and local circuit fishing tournaments, area club tournaments and individual fishermen. Some release everything caught and some rely on their catch for dinner.
I really wonder how many anglers, out of the hundreds fishing in these tournaments, and the scores of leisure fishermen have any idea about what they are casting their lures into and the possibility of putting toxic fish into the livewells. I doubt very many do.
