Boat involved in notorious walleye cheating scandal could be yours

Anglers around the country might recall the highly publicized cheating scandal in October 2022, involving two men who were found to have stuffed weights into their fish during a Lake Erie walleye tournament.

What anglers might not know is that, for the right price, they could own the top-line bass boat, motors and trailer used by the cheaters and later confiscated by Ohio authorities.

(Jacob Runyan and Steven Gall also received 10-day jail sentences.)

According to Government Deals, a public viewing and demonstration of the boat, valued at $100,000, will be held Saturday (July 13) at the Dempsey Fishing Access Area in Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio.

The 2022 Ranger 622 FS Pro Bass Boat is currently in the possession of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Bids are being accepted online through July 23 and the highest bid, as of July 11, was $82,000.
