Technicality Costs Angler $1 Million?

Here's a fascinating story courtesy of our friends over at The Rocky River. It's the story of how the Arkansas Department of Game of Fish is working hard to deny an angler a chance at a big bonus for his massive 68 pound striper. Read more about this by clicking here. It's well worth the read.

The IGFA actually, unbelievably, also ruled against the catch, but this time because they said that the alabama rig (although it had never been in the rules as an unacceptable lure) was an unacceptable lure.

An online petition has actually been started that with every signature, is sent to Jack Vitek at the IGFA and to Mustad hooks. Take the time to at least review the facts, and if you have a minute and the heart in you to help change this veteran's life for the good, PLEASE SIGN IT:
