For the last two decades or more, bass tournament anglers in Wisconsin have been hamstrung by a biologically unjustified regulation that does not permit culling during a bass tournament. But finally there may be a light at the end of that tunnel.
Thanks to a change in the legislature (think "Republican Governor and teachers' protest") and the hard work of Wisconsin B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Legislative Director, Dan Brovarney, and all Wisconsin BFN members involved, Wisconsin Assembly Bill 35 has been introduced to permit culling during bass tournaments. Finally.
For the second time in the last several years, B.A.S.S. Conservation Director Noreen Clough traveled to Wisconsin to testify on behalf of B.A.S.S., LLC. This time her testimony was in support of the legislative proposal instead of opposition to the continuation of regulations to not allow culling.
