    Yes. I was on the lake that day and a fisherman told me somebody caught a big bass near San Diego Arm. =^..^=

    That's to bad. I've never been a huge fan of sight fishing. Not saying all sight fishermen does it but not all fishermen are honest. Furthermore, I'm thinking Mike Long is not the only one. This reminds of how "DOTTIE" was supposedly foul hooked on the back with a white jig. If I remember correctly, the angler swung like 4 or 5 times before finally hooking her on her back. Just curious. What are you thoughts?

    My mind went to the same place! Big money breeds corruption. Seems that when the white jig disappears they swing. The main difference being the weighted treble hook, if indeed that's what was used. Had there not been witnesses to the Dottie snagging would she have gone on the top of the "list"? Who knows?

    If i remember correctly they recognized she was foul hooked and didn't try to hide it. I could be wrong though.

    Anybody think the lakes here will remove his records? Seems like they couldn't really deny the evidence, but not sure they really care to get involved? Also, think the DFG will cite him and ban his license privileges given the snagging video? Seems like those two possibilities would be best case scenario. And yeah, seems like he's already found his hole to crawl into and is getting comfortable. Maybe he'll attempt to sue Kellen for defamation? I for one am very interested in the fallout of this thing.

    There's no hard evidence of any wrongdoing as far as attempting to snag the bass; If Kellen had made a citizen's arrest things might be different. Right now, there's just a guy in a boat in a video that could have been shot anywhere. The DFW pretty much has to witness the illegal behavior; and even when they do, they rarely take away a poacher's fishing privileges for long. Sometimes there's a suspension. I know it's been a few years, but the two guys who speared the black sea bass...INside the La Jolla reserve....would have been allowed to reapply for fishing licenses if they didn't reoffend while on probation. But, hey, they said they were sorry.....

    Agree, as they say on those real-life whodunnit shows, "there is a mountain of circumstantial evidence". I found some of it downright silly. By no means do I think the man is innocent of all charges, but I doubt a prosecutor would go into the courtroom with such a case.

    Don't think the purpose was to have him prosecuted as much as it was to shut him down. I agree with fisheromen. The Snow Bass is a good example. The lure reportedly used was a jig yet you never see a hook set or rod bend. Can a hook be set by just turning the handle? Sure, isn't that the method used by many while drop shotting and almost everyone when fishing circle hooks. Can a fish be brought in by pointing the rod at a fish? Sure, it's called straight winding. Here's the caveat, anyone who fishes jigs and has the room to swing is going to swing and I know of no one who is going to point their rod at a fish to bring it to the boat unless they had no other choice but to. Those of you who have fished a crowded boat know what I'm talking about. With few exceptions, that are a whole nother subject, it's just not done. But alas, as fisheromen stated, it's circumstancial evidence

    Can't figure that out either. Never known it to happen unless DFG is involved. Maybe the powers that be figure banishment and shame are enough punishment

    There has been suspicion for some time. The snagging video was shot this last spring.

    Edit: Some was shot spring of 2018.

    this story has been i my head 10 years (quote)
    “Around 2010, I realized he was completely full of it,” said Ellis, who acknowledged he stopped answering or returning calls from Long when he became convinced the angler was cheating and falsely claiming records. “So I started writing this in my head. I’ve been doing this article in my head for 10 years.”

    Tournament directors have been leery of the guy for years, as noted in the article. BTW, there's a Bryce Miller column on the front page of today's UT sports section about this. With a still shot...Kellen Ellis photo credit.
