In the Wild with Greg Wagner

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME … by Greg Wagner


A professional angler found to have stuffed lead sinkers down the throats of fish he submitted for weigh-ins during a prestigious bass-fishing tournament has been banned for life from that and other competitions in a scandal that has rocked the tight-knit and passionate bass-fishing community.

Mike Hart, a successful Southern California pro whose career earnings total more than $200,000, was accused of cheating in this manner during the recent $100,000 U.S. Open held at sprawling Lake Mead on the Nevada-Arizona border. An official with the Western Outdoor News bass tour said Hart confessed after he was caught virtually red-handed. 

From Bass Boat Magazine @ This is a photo of the lead weights retrieved from the bellies of Hart's fish.

Let this be a lesson kids: “Cheaters never win and winners never cheat!”
See you out there, abiding by the rules and regulations of your outdoor sport or activity!

Man! What a disgrace! Fishing is supposed to be about having fun! Not stuffing weights into fish! Glad you posted this Wags! What a shame indeed.
