Crappie Angler Disqualified, Banned for Life for Cheating


We started getting reports Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, that an angler had been disqualified from the Crappie USA $125,000 Classic on Old Hickory Lake in Tennessee that fished Oct. 25-26, 2019. As shown in the video below, at the 53-minute mark, an angler comes to the stage and the tournament director pulls him to the side to have a discussion. You can hear in the audio discussions on disqualification, authorities, felony, etc. Moments later the angler gathers his fish and leaves without weighing them.
