What kind of tournament was it to have more than two anglers in the boat? Must have been a big tournament to have payed $4000.

My thoughts too. And how did they make you swear not to tell, threaten to beat you up? And how about the team that should have gotten third? You helped decieve them out of their winnings by being silent. You are right, bad situation and you are definately part of it.

Hey JMO,but you need to turn them in, they admitted they had done this before, they are criminals, i repeat criminals, you should turn them in and report there names all over the internet.
These scumbags should never be allowed to fish for money again.
And if they tried that at one of my local tourneys, the boys would be waitin for at the ramp the following tourney and it would get real ugly fast!!!!
Guys like this kill tourney fishing. Do the right thing and turn them in....They will cheat and steal again.
I cant stand a cheater!!!!!!!! If you cant win or place without cheating keep your sorry arse at the house!!!!!!!!!!!
PS. Never I repeat never fish any tourney that doesnt check livewells at the ramp!!!!!!!
[censored] cheaters, God I hate'em.

I have never heard of a tournament big enough to have a $4,000 payout, yet does not check livewells beforehand and allows 3 people to fish out of a boat. Odd.

That said, assuming everything is accurate, you should report it. They have stolen money from the people who competed fairly. It is theft.

I am surprised at the number of people who have said, "Too late to say anything about it now."

True, you should have said something immediately, but it's never too late to set things right. Knowing about it and keeping quiet makes you just as guilty as they are.

I think there was an article in last months BASS mag about 2 KY
guys caught stealing in a tourney. They had caged fish waiting
for them. Someone saw them put the cage out and called it in.
They were busted the next morning when they went to "catch"
their fish.

Those boys are going to jail for a while. These guys are thieves
for stole from everyone in that tourney. They need to be caught.

everyone says they would turn them end - in actualilty most would have done just wha you did - pretty much nothing - then feel bad about it forever. i say go fishing with them again - go to the middle of the river - pull out a gun - and let them swim.

reminds me of a time my brother in law and I went fishing on Carters Lake in Georgia. We ran out of bait and pulled into the bank next to a little creek. when we went up the creek looking for bait we found where someone had dammed the creek up making a little pool. in that pool was some pretty good sized bass, which I might say ended up in our belly that night.

I talked to the tourney director. He knows the guys dad pretty well and they do some busines together (or did business together). The guys dad actually provides a digital sign for the tournament. He said that it was too late to really do alot about it. He appreciated my honesty and vowed that next year would hold a few new surprises to the tourney in order to catch them in the act. He agreed that he has suspicion of a few boats doing the same thing. I will never fish another tournament though.

Tournament fishing takes the fun out of fishing IMO, I don't care for fishing tounaments.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
