Just because this type of crap really irrates me I am making this post. The 2 guys who are accussed of cheating in Barkley tournament now has their picture online for all to view. Unless you are a "subscriber" to the Paducah sun you cna not read the article however. Go to Paducahsun.com, click the outdoors link on the left, and their they are. Look familiar but can say I know them by name.
This is one of the main reasons I don't fish tourneys, if a fella really knew how much cheating is going on it would scare ya to death. Any time the almighty dollar comes into play the cutthroats will be in attendance, count on it. Me I'll just stick with, set the hook, measure, weigh, photogragh if nice and release. I'll save my money to buy this freaking over prised gasoline LOL.
According to another website, these same fellas won a tourney last weekend and came in 4th in a tournament the weekend before that. I REALLY REALLY want to see the video of them loading up those fish. Also, if convicted, these guys' pictures should be plastered on the walls at every marina in Kentucky.
I agree they done it to themselves.

Hey Slop, could you give a link to the other website?
Is there anyway to cut & paste the article from the online Paducah paper onto this board?
Please do not post the article on this board. Technically that is Copyright infringement. However if someone has a user name and password they want to share that is up to you. The Paducah Sun Times might not appreciate it though.
Apparently the boat they used was one they won at Super Bass and that is the one they had confiscated.

Marked fish make final catch
Facing charges: Fishing partners Dwayne Nesmith (left) of Island and Brian Thomas of Dawson Springs — shown with a 24-pound third-place catch, including a 7-15 big bass, in the 2004 Jet-A-Marina Classic tournament — now face attempted theft charges for allegedly bringing bass caught in advance and staked out to a recent tournament weigh-in.
