A Week in the Slammer for Fishing Tournament Cheater

Alfred Mead, a 72-year-old angler from Minnesota, has pleaded guilty to a charge of “theft by swindle” on May 20, Parks Rapid Enterprise reported.

Mead shamelessly admitted to catching two northern pike on another lake and keeping them alive to bring to the Park Rapid American Legion Community Fishing Derby on Feb. 2. The prize for the tournament winner was an Ice Castle fish house valued at $10,000.

But it doesn’t stop there. Mead has a decade long trail of suspiciously successful tournament winnings, as well as two prior convictions from 2009.
