They cheated. The judges noticed that the fish presented for the contest weighed more than they should have. By weight these fisherman should have won the trophy and the $29000 prize. But wait.
The judge opened up the fish and found lead weights and fish fillets from the grocery store inside these fish. There is a dramatic video with this, it will surely make you angry and possibly bring tears to your eyes.
It was a sad day for the Lake Erie Walleye Trail fishing tournament, and America. I’m not sure we will recover any time soon.
