Unbelievable... what an idiot !!

Recommended Posts

Many broken jawed bass come from culling buoys.  Non piercing buoys should be the only ones allowed.   Years ago there was a couple guys up here importing 3# and larger bass into blue springs lake and lake jacomo.  They would use a hole punch to make a hole through the tail so they knew it was an import.  After they healed there was hole shaped scar on the fish for quite sometime.

Not that I condone marking fish at all, but I could see the hole punch through a thin part of the tail being MUCH less intrusive and harmful to the fish than cutting half the freakin tail fan off! What the hell goes through peoples minds?

There was a thread  not too long ago about catching clipped river bass and wondering if it was done by whom and why,  Meramec  forum possibly.

Culling buoys should be banned, keep them or release them immediately.
