That was a hell of a lot of time and money spent by investigators looking into a fishing contest cheat.

I thought this sounded familiar, but nope, apparently cheating is just very common in fishing tournaments because a quick google turned up dozens and dozens of cases.

Hahaha yesssss

I am addicted to the reality show North Woods Law. A 3 year investigation into a stolen ATV. Park rangers rescuing geese with broken wings. So many illegal hunters baiting deer. I've invited friends over to drink beer and watch episodes and yell MST3K style. Everything is so low-stakes but who can resist watching cops who care about animals and actually ticket litterbugs? Fark yeah!

Fishing tournaments are serious business. Just ask anyone that has entered one. Like asking vegans or crossfit enthusiasts to tell you about their lifestyle.

Litter bugs belong on a cross. Sounds amusing.

'Cept the vegans and crossfit enthusiasts are a HELL of a lot less likely to be lying to you about what they've done.

I knew someone in college that was "outed" as a "fake" vegan. I couldn't give a sh*t but it created a minor stir.

Hey, it's a fish eat fish in the competitive fishing game.

This is a long, but interesting read, about fish tournament cheating...

The first time I saw competitive fly fishing was the same week I cut my cable.

There are some things better left out of the Bro-o-sphere.

You can kill a black man or woman but don't cheat in fishing.

It's an oldie, but a classic quote:

"In reality, making a fishing series is like filming a porn movie. With fishing, you are lucky if you catch something and in porn you are lucky if you don't, but both are tedious, crusty, sticky and stinky. Also it's mostly faked"

- Rich Hall, promoting his fishing show on BBC4

That was a good read. There is some serous jail time with cheating. More like fraud but wow.
