Can there be a case for fraud here as far as money made off the lies? Seems that could be legally devastating for him.

Me either it just seems like the quietest, out of the limelight place to go.

Celebrity worship is naivete in action.  Some would call me a cynic though I would say I am a realist.  I hear and see people speaking highly of the character, goodness, and skills of celebrities, including quite a few on this forum who think some professional anglers' poo doesn't stink.  You don't know what you don't know and the true story of Mike Long is now appearing to be revealed.  Every group of people, no matter how skilled or kind they appear to be, has some bad apples.  There are no exceptions.  

 

Who's next?  🙂

Well said!

Bill Murphy was scared of Mike Long.

 

...

 

“Murphy absolutely thought he was a cheater. I had breakfast with Bill Murphy a few months before he died, he thought not only was he dangerous, but he was a cheater, and that he was spawning a bad element in bass fishing in San Diego County,” Zieralski told me in a phone interview this May. “He did not respect Long. He feared him. He feared the element that Mike was bringing into the sport.”

That's crazy. Sounds even worse than I thought.

You have to know that when people began becoming suspicious and accusations started, the default response of his would be "they are just jealous".

 

You see a similar response all the time when someone achieves success, be it financial, political, celebrity and they act like a jerk.  Anyone who calls them out as a jerk will be dismissed as being jealous.  The fact is people can achieve success and be jerks or cheaters, those categories are not mutually exclusive and jealousy is rarely the main motivation for pointing it out.

Just finished reading the whole article. He threatened so many people who caught him cheating and in a few cases essentially tried to kill some of them by loosening wheels. He even threatened a 13 year old and made it known that he knew where he slept and shined lights in his window.

 

He belongs in jail, and he's lucky he never received a shot to the head.

Man, if this dude was shining a flashlight into my son's room he would more than likely be rolling his big, lying, cheating, scumbag, 6'18" butt in the grass outside said bedroom with a load of buckshot in it.

 

Truly a great big stinky turd of a person.

I can't even imagine the mindset of cheaters and liars and their need for constant attention.

 

You do have to admire the author of the story and video, Kellen Ellis, for his tenacity. He not only did his research in putting together the article, but he spent untold hours stalking and filming Long to get proof of his snagging bass.

The author of this article did a fantastic job. I don’t know much about the world of journalism but he should be nominated for an award. 

 

I feel like a made for TV movie, or perhaps a dateline episode needs to done about this

To be fair, that was completely speculation as nobody saw him or had evidence it was him who did that.  Now the other stuff, yeah that seemed to be pretty straight forward bad stuff.

  I know an angler like that . He  even weighed my fish in a tournament . I was young at the time and let him get away with it . He had   trophy's from tournaments out of state that he never even fished in . He hired a guide to fish with in a club tournament . I dont know what causes  this  type  of behavior . Maybe an inferiority complex .

Did you not watch the snagging video?

 

That's evidence for me 😉

 

On a positive note that lake he was snagging those Hawgs on I would love a week checking that out!

I did, I was referring to the removing/loosening of the lug nuts on the trailer wheels

I guess highlighting the part in the quote i was referring to wasn't enough.  Probably wouldn't hurt for you to read and comprehend my entire post as well as I made sure to call out everything else seemed to be pretty straightforward and not on the up and up.

Rather amazing. Reminds me a bit of the “Angler X” fiasco years ago, among others. A good look into the psychology of the gamer and the gamed, and makes you wonder just what else we’ve accepted over the years (catches, records, tourney wins, even forum posts/pics) where reality might not have ever been “discovered.”
