We've all heard the talk about these two heros in the news these past weeks. Jacob Runyan and Chase Cominsky hit national headlines when they were caught "cheating" in a Walleye fishing trail event at Lake Erie in Ohio.
Everyone is so quick to blast these guys on social platforms. My question is if these guys are so white trash and the lowest of the low... how on earth did they get away with this operation for so long?
Now I have never partaken in any walleye fishing events. I know less about walleye fishing than I would like to admit. But I do know a thing or two about event orginization and the male drive to constantly try to find ways to cheat the system and come out on top.
If you watch the video
you'll get the sense of how close these guys were to getting their asses kicked. BUT DIDINT. Maybe we are approaching young Jacob and Chase the wrong way.
Putting weights in fish to win a fishing contest is a concept as old as time. But the balls to pull this off time after time and pull local winnings in such as a bass boat worth over 100k... now that's hard core.
These guys put other fish filets inside these fish... it's Genius.
Everyone's all up in arms about losing to these "cheaters". I call bullshit.... these other fisherman are pissed cuz they didn't win the boat... and MORE upset that their weights weren't heavy enough to do so.
These guys got caught doing what tournament fisherman do every day. Fucking cheat. People have been lying about fishing since the first fish story back in 100 BC. It's almost like peanut butter and jelly. Or ham and burger. Lying and fishing go together like peas and carrots
Sure they "stole winnings" and may face "criminal charges" but at least they were out there doing it. These guys were out there putting in the hard work... Don't forget they had to catch these walleye before they stuffed them full of assorted heavy objects. No one just gave them the fish.... didn't thing about that did you.
If you ain't cheating you ain't trying, and that's just my opinion. If you were really that upset about it you would have done something instead of just yelling and threatening the two fisherman with lead balls. But YOU DIDN'T. You just stood their simping on your own lack of ingenuity and low T levels.
Get a rep and go find ways to win. Loser
