Texas Passes Bill Making Lying about Your Fish Illegal by GoFISHn TeamSome people will do anything to win a fishing tournament or say they've caught the biggest fish, and Texas is making it illegal.
A bill just hit the governor's desk that would make it a misdemeanor and in some cases a felony to misrepresent the size, weight or provenance of a fish in a fishing tournament.

This comes on the heels of one pro angler trying to win a $55,000 fishing boat in 2009 by adding lead weight to his bass. He was caught and thrown in jail for 15 days.

The new law extends to both freshwater and saltwater tournaments. A violation would be a Class A misdemeanor, unless the tournament prize offered was more than $10,000, in which case it would be a third-degree felony, punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Cheaters never prosper, and now, they're going to have to pay.
it would be interesting to know if we have a similar law in malta.
