Butcher culling continues
We've watched Terry Butcher cull twice more. The trade-ins are the 14-inch minimum keepers in his livewell. He's upgraded three of them so far. I blogged earlier about the first, a 4-pounder.
Butcher has replaced two more since then. He's culled up another fish to gain another pound. Best guess on the third cull is 6 or 8 more ounces. In most tournaments that doesn't stack up to much. Here, it can mean the difference between winning and loosing. And here it can also mean a won or lost berth in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
All we can do now is wait for the weigh-in. The scales will state the facts at 4 p.m.
