Cheaters Never Win
Fellow anglers, this is very disturbing news that my brother brought to my attention. This man you're seeing was caught cheating in a fishing tournament. Cheating really is not the issue, it's how he cheated. Forty-five year old Bobby Rose from Garland, Texas did something very inhumane to try to win a fishing tournament. Matt Peterson of the The Dallas Morning News states,"He stuffed a lead weight into a bass during a fishing tournament." This lead weight was no little split shot either, it weighed a full pound. I have always dreamed about becoming a professional fisherman, but the day I stop enjoying fishing to make a buck would be the day I'd never forgive myself. I found that this sport has helped me in so many ways, like having love and respect for nature. I hope people understand that even though fish get hurt in this sport, there is a huge difference between fishing and cruelty.
