From Spearfishing Magazine – The 2004 Nationals – 2004 Hell Divers’ Rodeo

Weigh in 
Mike McGuire’s heart sank when he opened up his hatch; he had shot an illegal sized parrotfish. He could leave the small fish in his kayak or cast it away in the ocean. He didn't. Consequently, Mike was disqualified at a great cost; giving up first place in the mixed doubles, third over-all in the men’s division, and a chance to qualify for the next Worlds Meet. Mike’s comment was succinct: (clearly stated in few words) “In the end you have to be able to look at yourself in the mirror”. Sportsmanship and honestly like Mike’s wasn't universal; in the men’s division two major protests were lodged because some competitors accused other competitors of releasing fish in order to increase their scores.

Mike,
    From all of us at Atlantis Divers
® and I am sure all of our spearfishing friends;  Thank you for demonstrating to us that honesty is worth much more than prizes or rewards.  Our hats are off for a true hero among us!
