Should everyday anglers be allowed to cull fish just as tournament anglers will now be allowed to cull bass?
BACKGROUND: Wisconsin governor to sign bass culling billMadison, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker says he'll sign a bill that would reshape Wisconsin bass tournament rules.
The Republican-backed measure would legalize culling, the practice of catching a fish and temporarily keeping it alive, then throwing it back after catching a larger one. It's illegal in Wisconsin but the bill would create an exemption for bass tournaments.
The bill's chief sponsor, Rep. Joel Kleefisch, an Oconomowoc Republican, says the change will draw larger tournaments to the state and pump up local economies.
Both the Senate and Assembly passed the bill earlier this month. Walker says he'll sign the bill Friday morning at the Golden Mast Inn on Okauchee Lake in Oconomowoc.
If this practice is OK for bass tournament anglers, should it also be OK for ordinary fishermen at other times?

The search is expanded this year because a dozen of Wisconsin’s wild elk, all young animals, were trapped this past winter and were moved to an “acclimation pen” 10 miles distant from the main herd as the crow flies.
That pen – a black plastic wall that surrounded 2.3 acres of forest around Clam Lake – was breached this past Wednesday by DNR biologists who quickly retreated after leaving piles of alfalfa outside the opening. This allowed the wary elk to wander out into their new territory, undisturbed by humans.
