Accu-Cull Elite E-Con Tags Culling System – $31.94

If you’ve never heard of culling, here’s a quick lesson for you. For tournament bass anglers, most events allow for a 5-fish limit. This can consist of the anglers 5 biggest bass throughout their day on the water. Once the angler has 5 keepers, they can then upgrade if they catch a bigger fish. This is called culling.

Now, anglers like to use a culling tag system to mark which fish is their smallest so they can save some time during their tournament day. The Accu-Cull Elite system is one that won’t harm the bass, and will allow for quick and easy identification for the angler. You can find these in most tackle shops, or you can grab a set here.
