RE: Polygraph test used to out $2.8 million winner (cheat) of fishing tournament, can this by used in running?
The only white marlin to qualify in this yearâ€™s $2.8 million White Marlin Open seemed a sure bet to earn that grand prize for the winning team on the boat Kallianassa.. Since then, however, the team came under suspicion of rules violations and, after members failed the same polygraph questions, the White Marlin Open asked the circuit court to make a ruling on disqualifying the winning team and deciding on distribution of prize money.
According to published court records, angler Phillip Heasley (who is also captain/owner of the Naples, Florida-based Kallianassa and the angler catching the 76.5-pound marlin on Day Two of the tournament, Aug. 9) and crew member Kyle Bohannon both failed the polygraph for the same rules-related questions, notably whether Heasley had assistance in catching the fish and whether the boat had passed the sea buoy before 4 a.m.
A Florida man won first, second, and third place for a single fish.
The catch that won this year's White Marlin Open was nearly 23 pounds shy of breaking the tournament record, but the angler who caught it probably couldn't care less. The fish netted its captor nearly $3 million in prize money. The "catch".... it was the only white marlin caught in the tournament that qualified.
