Wisconsin! Fishing! --- Controversy!

From the AP, via The Star Tribune, comes this tale of a Fishing Competition that was tainted by the Scourge of Pike Smugglin'.

The initially declared winner has been accused of smuggling a fish into the competition, through some tipsters and a piece of excellent detective work:  "girls who sold refreshments told of the excessive amount of bottled water the man bought in the 14-degree weather."

Organizers stripped the winner of his grand prize, a new Dodge truck.  Which makes his initial reaction to winning all the better:  

"TV cameras were rolling when he was asked what he would do with the grand prize and replied: 'Drive it like it's stolen.'"
