Christie keeps a Picasso Cull Buddy System in his livewell, but he uses it selectively. "I use it as I think I’ll need it," he said. "If I catch a 5-pounder right off the bat, I don’t tag that one. It depends on the lake. If we’re on a lake like St. Clair where we’re going to catch a lot of 3- to 3 1/2-pounders, I tag them. But on a lot of the lakes, I kind of put the big ones on one side and the little ones on the other. I worry about culling when the time comes."
