Living Lake Country -- What is Culling?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Buyers Agent/Luxury/Lake/REO, listing package options

The governor signed the bill at the Golden Mast Inn on Okauchee Lake near Oconomowoc last Friday morning. The bill's author, Republican Rep. Joel Kleefisch of Oconomowoc.

Culling refers to catching a fish, keeping it in a live well and then throwing it back after catching a bigger fish. The practice is illegal in Wisconsin, but the bill creates an exemption for bass tournaments. Kleefisch says the change will draw larger tournaments to the state.

Friends of mine were on hand for the event -Republican Rep. Joel Kleefisch of Oconomowoc, Aaron David and Mike Simonds!

More opinions than you want to hear about.

Has anyone explained why culling is good for bass tournaments but bad for normal fishermen?  I wonder if anyone has ever been cited for culling fish in Wisconsin. It seems unenforcable, or at least very difficult to enforce the law or prove a violation.

Thats a good question MIke.  NOt sure of the answer.... but I can tell you on Waukesha County lakes there is a high presence of DNR and Sheriffs Deputies on the lakes..... but if it can attract tournaments and $$$$ to Wisconsin and does no harm, why not!

There are several jurisdictions that patrol the lakes in Waukesha County alone.  While I personally believe culling should be allowed for everyone, it was enough of a fight to just legalize it for tournaments.  Remember, any fisherman can catch 5 bass and take them home to eat.  There certainly is a higher mortality rate in fried fish than in those culled and put back.
