Saw this on another forum. Even the Skeeter's owners toruny is not safe from cheaters. I guess some people are just DA's and think they won't get caught.
Game warden cases: Crazy from the heat? Why else would one stuff a dead deer in a ‘friend’s’ truck? | Outdoors | a Chron.com blog
- Wood County Game Wardens Derek Spitzer and Kurt Kelley along with Rains County Game Warden Dewayne Noble, Van Zandt County Game Warden Steve Stapleton and Captain David Modgling worked the Skeeter Owners Bass Tournament on Lake Fork June 9-10
Five of the more than 1,650 anglers in the contest “won” felony criminal charges.
During the tournament, the five subjects were caught with illegal fish being brought to the weigh-in.
Two of the largemouth bass had their tails altered or “cut” to make them under the slot of 16 inches. Another bass, an 8-pounder, was caught on a crappie, a game fish illegal to use as bait.
All subjects wrote out and signed voluntary statements concerning their actions after being questioned by the wardens.
Five charges were filed with the Wood County DA’s office for fraud in a freshwater tournament, a third degree felony.
