A now viral video of a cheating scandal in competitive fishing, has stunned viewers on social media who were unaware of the seriousness and passion involved in the sport.

The clip in question was taken at the Lake Erie Walleye Trail's final event of the 2022 season.

Chase Cominsky and Jake Runyon had thought they had won the event, but were found to have stuffed their fish with lead weights and extra fish fillets.

The video shows the tournament director, Jason Fischer, cutting open the fish caught by Runyon and Comisky, as fellow competitors hurl abuse at the two cheaters.

Fischer released the following statement on the LEWT facebook page: “Disgusted guys and gals, I’m sorry for letting you down for so long and I’m glad I caught cheating taking place in YOUR LEWT at the same time.

“I can’t think enough to post results, but congrats Tsczyko and French and TOY Hendricks and Ulmer. Same goes to the yak and open winners.

“I hope you know now that when I say ‘you built this LEWT and I will defend its integrity at all costs’, I mean it. You all deserve the best.”

The story has also garnered attraction due to other recent cheating scandals in other 'less-popular' sports such as chess and professional poker.

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen recently accused American Hans Niemann of cheating, although he is yet to be found guilty.
