A pair of fishermen were about to receive a reward of R$150,000 for the incredible weight of fish they caught during a competition in Ohio, USA, when it was made public by the organizers. They found that the men stuffed the fish presented at the tournament with lead weights and fillets of other fish.

Jason Fischer, director of the Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament, said in a video posted on the competition’s official page that he suspected a team’s fish weighed almost twice what it expected at the championship weigh-in in Cleveland, Ohio.

“When we weighed the green beaks this team caught in the bucket, it looked like they should have weighed 1.8 kilos each, but the total weight showed they were at least 3.18 kilos each,” the director said in the video. “I thought that was not possible,” he said. “I could also hear the crowd saying ‘no, no’.”

Fischer claimed that by touching one of the fish, he could feel the hard objects inside. The moment Fischer discovered the alleged cheating was documented in videos posted on social media that showed the director surrounded by contestants, cutting the fish with a knife and explaining it was a lead ball.

Fischer hosts approximately eight tournaments throughout the year that attract competitors from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Competitors face off to see who can get the most total weight for a bucket of five fish caught in Lake Erie.

Angry at what happened, Fischer says the tournament organization is in contact with local officials. Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Stephanie O’Grady told CNN that the department collected evidence Friday and is preparing a report for the Cuyahoga County Attorney’s Office.
