Mark turned himself in to Trip, stating he briefly forgot about the no snag rule on Sturgeon Bay and kept the fish. Takes a lot of character and a class act to turn yourself in after the tournament and miss the Bassmaster Classic because of it. Great man.

He is a man of integrity. That had to be hard to do.

I guess i'm kinda on the flip side on this. Looks like he knowingly broke the rules, weighed his fish, walked across the stage with it in the back of his mind. Then got home that night and felt bad about it and turned himself in. IMO I give more credit and class to the guys that threw those fish back on the water when nobody was looking. Im glad he did the right thing but I don't think he should be commended for it. Prob a great guy and a great fishermen.... Just my .02 cents.

Good for him. But this makes me wonder how often something like this may happen and we NOT hear about it. Even in the Major League like Menendez.

Kind of how I feel about it. Well said.

He did the right thing, why cast a shadow over it. We as natural men usually don't immediately recognize wrong doing and confess sin. It often takes a while for God to work on us and for us to humble ourselves enough to make things right. What a cool story! It always pays in ways that really count to do the right thing!

I agree with this rather than the downer side of thinking.. He got excited like many of us do, stuff happens..
Any wrong has been righted, why always try to tear something good down. That's whats wrong with a lot of things these days imo..

Just wondering if maybe his marshal turned him in and BASS gave him a way out. I know first hand some of these boys will bend the rules a little when it benefits them

He did the right thing.

Go to the Sturgeon Bay BassCam, scroll down, watch a video called "ISH Happy with that One," and tell me if you think that one was caught in the mouth.

But was it hooked in the mouth before it started kicking in the floor?
