I can see that being important in fishing tournaments. In a situation where prize money is involved, lying about the size or number of fish would be pretty much like stealing.

True, but there are already laws against fraud on the books and they've gotten at least one conviction (mentioned in the article) based on those existing fraud laws. Seems redundant to make a specific law regarding fishing tournaments. Though, the way I read the article it sounds like there was already a law like this dealing with freshwater tournaments, and this law deals with saltwater tournaments. If that's the case I guess it makes sense to balance it out.

This is a harsh law.  Don't they understand that we men are born with a disability that causes us to overestimate the size of things?

It already is a felony to lie to a federal officer even if what you are misrepresenting isn't an offense. See Martha Stewart. My link above just says it all for me.
