Agreed, my point was there is not much need for a metal detector in most cases, even though they are used on tour.

As it's usually obvious when a fish has been stuffed in competition, unless it's a very small amount. As mentioned, they added fillets as well, which cannot be detected by touch. But that has been used by many competitors to add mass that the detectors cannot pickup.Sorry, but lead is easy to detect with a handheld metal detector. They do such a good job there is even an article suggesting ERs use them to detect metal ingested by kids vs using xrays. They are easy to train on too, so you don't need any special skills.

I can't believe they were so stupid to use lead.
