TX Fisherman Indicted After Cheating in Bass Tournament

If I’m ever fishing in Texas, someone please remind me to stay humble.

I can fondly remember my younger days, when bass fishing was the go-to summer activity.

We were the lucky ones, who grew up in a tiny town where the local golf course wouldn’t bat an eye to see us strutting down the fairways with our tackleboxes and rods, heading to one fo the half dozen or so bass-filled ponds on the property.

And, let me just say, those smallmouth had no idea what hit ’em.  We could practically toss anything on a hook and get a bite.  It was surreal.

Still, we knew that some of us would recount the stories a bit, well, vividly once we were all hanging out in someone’s barn later, drinking some pilfered Coor’s Light cans from someone else’s Dad.  It was all harmless exaggeration meant to fit nicely into our otherwise awkward adolescent chest-puffing, and no one was truly bothered by an extra couple of inches of fish on the re-telling of the tale.

But, when it comes to making beaucoup dollars in a bass tournament, such tall tales aren’t ignored so easily.

Terry Keith Long from Bridgeport allegedly trimmed the tail of a bass to meet weigh-in requirements, in order to qualify for a tournament prize at the McDonald Big Bass Splash on Lake Fork, according to a release by Texas Parks & Wildlife.

Fishing regulations for Lake Fork require a length limit in the 16-24″ slot, meaning only bass 16 inches and less, or 24 inches or greater, in length may be kept, according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife website.

It was this simple snip that that got Keith caught and clipped.

Long was charged with fraud at a freshwater fishing tournament, which is a third-degree felony, Texas Parks & Wildlife reported.

If I’m ever fishing in Texas, someone please remind me to stay humble.

Keith is currently out on bond.

LeBron James And Other Members Of The Lakers Sport Mock MAGA Hats

On Tuesday evening, prior to the first-round playoff series game against the Portland Trailblazers, members of the Los Angeles Lakers, including NBA legend LeBron James, rocked mock MAGA caps which had the words, “Great Again,” crossed out and replaced with “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.” James, easily one of the biggest influences in modern sports, also wore a shirt that said “By Any Means” on it, while also posting up the slogan on Instagram, writing, “By Any Means!! Lets Get It #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.” Now, to be fair, what happened to Taylor is absolutely horrific and absolutely uncalled for. The woman was shot while in her bed and there’s definitely reason to be angry about this situation being unresolved. The real issue here is whether or not it’s acceptable to participate in political activism while on the job. Do we really need to politicize sports like we have the rest of life? via The Daily Wire: Some of the other members of the Lakers squad who donned the mock MAGA hats included Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Jared Dudley, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo, Danny Green, and JR Smith, as The Daily Mail reported. After the game, James told reporters, “You know the situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky. An innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future. Her life was taken away from her. There’s been no arrests, there’s been no justice, not only for her, but for her family … We want to continue to shed light on that situation because it’s just unjust. That’s what it’s about.” https://twitter.com/NBAonTNT/status/1295942946198417408 Last month, James told reporters at a press conference, “The same energy that we have on the floor is the same energy that we have towards having justice for Breonna Taylor…

President Trump Says That If Biden Stands Up And Breathes, Media Will Call It ‘One Of The Greatest Debate Performances In History’

Published

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt recently conducted an interview with President Donald Trump in which he asked him about the debates coming down the pike with Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden, and what Trump had to say is both hilarious and sadly true. Trump said, “You know the way it is, the fake news. If he stands up and if he is able to breathe, and if he’s able to walk off the platform, they’ll say it was one of the greatest debate performances in history.” He’s right, you know. The mainstream media will ignore any idiotic or nonsensical things Biden, in his declining mental state, might say, and just as they made a big deal of his ability to ride a bike, acting as if that was all it took to verify his fitness for office, they will play up the fact he showed up as some sort of grand accomplishment. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Hewitt prompted Trump by asserting, “The expectations of the vice president are being lowered by the hour. I think if he just stands up for an hour, that will lead the media to declare him a winner. I appreciate that you nominated me to be a moderator. I don’t think the debate commission will give you anyone remotely close to being as tough on Biden as they are on you. Do you think they’re lowering expectations for Joe Biden for the debates?” Trump answered, “Well, I’m not lowering expectations. Everyone else is. I’m not. I don’t do that. Look, whoever shows up, I watched him with Bernie Sanders, and he did okay. I wouldn’t say he was Winston Churchill.” “Yes, he did,” the host replied. “But he got through,” Trump continued. “But you know the way it is, the fake news. If…
