Videos show fishermen erupting after would-be tournament champs were accused of cheating by stuffing their walleye with lead weights

A fishing tournament on Lake Erie ended in scandal Friday when a winning team was accused of cheating.

The tournament organizer cut open several walleye fish to discover heavy lead weights.

Cheating in a fishing tournament, in which prizes can exceed $100,000, could be considered fraud.

A fishing tournament on Lake Erie devolved into a scandal in Ohio on Friday after the team that appeared to have won was accused of cheating when weights were discovered inside their catch.

The Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament series was set to conclude this weekend, but chaos erupted during the championship weigh-in on Friday in Cleveland. Competitors Jacob Runyan and Chase Cominsky were initially named champions until the tournament organizer sliced into the walleye and discovered heavy lead weights.

This is why we have capital punishment in this country.

Yeah, I would be ticked too if I spent hundreds to enter a rigged competition. I imagine only a select few make back the funds it takes to fish in big tournaments, most the entries I am sure lose money to play.

Let's say you came in number two or three or four, and missed the 'money' of sponsorships, equipment, boats, pickups to pull them, clothing, expenses and a paycheck to be a professional angler because the guy who took first place was cheating...

Pissed would likely be a calm way to describe that reaction.
