MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Assembly is poised to take up a bill that would allow anglers to cull during bass tournaments.
Culling is the practice of catching and keeping a fish in a live well or fish basket and then throwing it back after catching a larger one. Culling is currently illegal in Wisconsin.
The bill would create an exemption for bass tournaments.
The bill's author, Rep. Joel Kleefisch, an Oconomowoc Republican, insists allowing culling will attract more bass tournaments to the state, pumping up the economy.
