Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A duo that had been declared winners of a fishing tournament series event were caught in a cheating scandal after a tournament official discovered weights stuffed inside their fish. Videos from the Lake Erie Walleye Trail Championship event show teammates Chase Cominsky, of Hermitage, Pennsylvania, and Jake Runyon, of Cleveland posing for a photo with fish just minutes before an official discovers something inside the animals.

The official, who cuts open the fish, shouts, "We got weights in fish," a revelation that is met with angry yelling from fellow competitors. The official later cuts open more fish and scoops out weights and what appear to be fish filets from inside the fish.

Lake Erie Walleye Trail director Jason Fischer wrote on Facebook that he was disgusted and is glad he caught the cheating happening at the event.

There is a rumor floating through angler circles that the men caught cheating have declared the fraud was perpetrated by "Antifa fish f***s" and say that the entire tournament weighing system is fraught with "fish fraud" while yelling that they were only singled out because of their allegiance to MAGA.

I'm just surprised that they didn't already have procedures in place at every tournament to catch this type of cheating.

X-ray catches? I think pro fishermen probably looked at their peers like pro golfers do.

Guess that bubble has been busted forever after this.

But your question is certainly mystifying. Hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line and until now they never thought to verify catches to their honest weights?

If you want to fudge the weights just hire that pathetic lush Dr. Ronny Jackson.

It is extremely likely that these fishermen are in good standing with the Republican Party, and as such, it surprises me how angry they got over this. Shouldn't they be blaming the Deep State of the fishing rules committee of planting the evidence? Seems like the winners were only being "smart."

These guys are just too stupid to be Trump supporters, they voted for Biden and believed him when he said there was zero inflation. When they went to the supermarket and realized it wasn't they had to cheat.

That was hilarious. The last time goobers like that got worked up that much they invaded the capitol.

Nice word salad. You almost strung together a couple of coherent sentences. Keep at it, maybe you'll land that zinger someday!

I saw the video. These guys are lucky they didn't get their asses kicked. At a prior tournament it is suspected that these same two smuggled in some fish which added to their total.

Or senators. Or police.

Or judges, being a reason to not officiate with reasonable examination. Maybe the payoff isn't the only thing not heavy enough this year? Bribes can work, but extortion is perhaps cheaper.:]

Impossible.

The bottom of the societal is Trump's support.
