Yank this man’s Bassmaster patch right off his camouflage shirt. Can you believe that someone would stuff a fish to win a tournament? It happened in Dallas Texas no less. They might string him up for that down in Texas.
“No fish story: Man jailed for weighting fish
DALLAS - A suburban Dallas man must serve 15 days in jail after admitting to stuffing a lead weight into a bass he caught during a fishing tournament. A Texas Parks and Wildlife Department spokesman told The Dallas Morning News that Robby Rose must also surrender his fishing license. That's after the 45-year-old man pleaded guilty to felony attempted theft after admitting to rigging his fish.
The felony charge relates to the bass boat Rose hoped to win with the rigged fish at a bass-fishing tournament on Lake Ray Hubbard last October.”
