Well, I need advice on a situation that I was recently put in. I was in a fishing tournament with 2 other guys. The tournament was a 2 day tourney.

We were fishing the second day and one of the guys pulled out a fish from the live well that I knew that we had not caught that day. He had gone fishing after we weighed our fish the day before. He managed to keep the fish alive in a water box at his house and brought it in the boat the next day to weigh in. This was a horrible situation to be in. I know these guys fairly well and they are friends of my wife.

We ended up placing 3rd in the tournament and it payed out about 4,000 in cash and prizes. I defered any payment and would not accept any prizes because I knew it was wrong. I felt so horrible standing up there knowing that we weren't winners at all. They made me swear that I would not tell their wives or anyone else.

I am tempted to contact the guy who administrates the tournament to tell him about ehat they did because I can't sleep since the tournament because I feel like by not coming forward, I was just as much of a liar as they were. The guys wives are good friends with my wife and I don't want to cause a stir but they even admitted that they have done this before.

Suggestions?????????????????????????????

The time for saying anything has long past. Nothing good will come of it now.

Don't fish with them again.

Who did you defer the money from? (your partners or the tournament director) If it was your partners, I would not say anything & never fish tournaments with em again. If it was tournament director, he probably suspects something is fishy (no pun intended)

I defered the money from the guys that I was fishing with. They are terrified that I am gonna tell someone, so I am hoping that this will cause them to have an integrity check. The guy pulled the fish out at the weigh in and later told me the story of how he caught it on day 1 after we stood up to accept the prizes. I fished on the back of the boat all day and they fished on the front. This fish was in the fron t livewell all day.

should have told them to get bent and toss the fish back right then...now I would tell them how and what I really think about them and how sorry it was for them to put me in that situation.

My wife is my best friend and she would support me no matter what I did about it and how her friends felt about it. I would tell them to find another fishing partner next time and that they could KMA.

Remember what goes around comes around..life is full of circles and the road just branches in short paths sometimes. I know how you feel my conscience is the same way and it would bother me too good luck..

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.
