http://www.bassmaster.com/news/million-dollar-catch Mustad is trying to sneak out of this using technicalities to pay up...This Angler exudes great class and integrity, it's not even funny. Pay the man Mustad! For all that feel he should get paid, click the link in the article for the petition site and submit one.
After reading this story, I believe there is no reason for this gentleman NOT to deserve the record and the money. Technicalities are simply ways for Mustad and the IGFA to avoid giving this man what he should have gotten. He caught the fish according to the rules they set up. It is time to cut out all the B.S. and reward him with the record and pony up with the money.
