Stretching the Limits

Game wardens investigating possible bass fishing tournament fraud in Travis and Bastrop counties discovered a unique sleight of hand while checking the potential violator after he had submitted questionable photos to a tournament on Decker Lake. The catch and release kayak fishing event used photos taken by contestants out on the water of their catches placed on a measuring board, with the angler having the most inches of bass in the aggregate declared the winner. Upon inspection of the violators vessel, a cut tail of a bass was found in the paddle well of the kayak. The violator initially stated he found the cut tail in the reeds and was taking it to shore to turn it in. Later the violator confirmed to have used the tail to place over another bass, using his hand to cover the questionable area, to make the fish look longer on multiple occasions. The violator was arrested for fraud in a fishing tournament. The charges are pending.

I recall a friend trying to get me to enter a few of these kayak bass by the inch tourneys, think the site was Xcite or something, I thought it would be full of fraudulent photos, I feel the same way about paper tournaments.

Even if they don't cheat, not everyone measures a fish the proper way. I've lost two tournaments in the last year by .07 pound or less. That's what, maybe an eighth of an inch or less?

Just bring the fish to the scales. That way you don't have to wonder.
