and my kids thought it was hilarious. But I have to agree, I didn’t like the portrayal of Billy Ray Cyrus cheating in the event. I mean he was caught, but I was surprised that BASS would be a part of a movie that played into that stigma. The Bass West issues they used at the end were very cool, you should use that cover some time, it would be awesome!

TL - I have to agree I didn’t think it was a great portrayal of a pro weigh in or the going back to the live well and bring- ing the ‘cheater‘ fish up to the stage. Of course on the other hand, it was made for entertainment, and did a good job at that. From our end I think as tournament anglers we all hate the fact that cheating has occurred in our sport. But every sport has had their problems with this, maybe congress will spend 9 million of our money to clean up our sport and get rid of the los- ers. But as my good friend Roy Hawk once told me “just get better than the cheaters and you don’t have to worry about it”. - JC
