Wow! Thought about this in past years, wondering if anyone had ever tried it and hopefully got caught.
These clowns should be Black Balled forever and lose all their sponsorships.

The shit of this is, how do you prove they cheated in the past tournaments? Tough to file lawsuits or criminal charges unless you have proof of past cheating.

Think of the money the other competitors spent, sponsors, winnings, etc. during the past year(s). I'm sure it's at least one million if not two that they could be sued for. I think about the guys/gals who came in at 2nd place to these assholes in the past year....I'd be so pissed! Good on them for not stringing them up on the spot, had to be tough not to.

Happened one time at the dakota walleye classic. They found weights in fish while cleaning them.

I was thinking the same thing. Hard to go back and prove this happened in their past tournaments. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.

As obvious as guilt is... would it be provable in court? I bet they would walk from the criminal part, but would, and should get spanked so hard they can't even look at anything fishing again, ever.

That tournament should be applauded for catching them.

Around here they would have got away with it every time.

"No your honor, we didn't put that in the fish we caught. They must've broken lines from other fishermen previously."

Or, from the defense attorney to the prosecution: "Do you have eye witness/photo/video evidence of the accused adding anything foreign into the fish they caught?"

The above said, if they don't move far far away, they're probably going to have to become big fans of Amazon and home cooking. If they've got school-aged kids things could get mighty rough for them.

Some people would cheat to win a used diaper, just to be able to say they won.

Airport scanning machine will eliminate all this nonsense, scan, then weigh, simple. But the prefish and dog kennel stringer shit will continue, need a way to eliminate that as well, even on the local level tourney, this is happens more than you know, so why even fish a tourney...its no fun anymore....everybody out for blood, nobody is better fisherman then the next guy, jesus L...fish to put food on the table guys. What happens when you put up thousands to win.....greed takes over not sportsmanship

Wasn't there some shenanigans at a pike spearing tournament in ND just a couple years ago? Like they were actually spearing a different lake, or something like that.
