Bass Pass

Bass Pass

A Bass Pass ($12.50), required of each angler participating in a black bass tournament between Sept.1 and June 15 allows anglers to keep two fish, to be released after tournament weigh-in, that meet the statewide 15-inch minimum length limit but are under a special length limit for that fishing location.

The regulation also allows an angler in a registered tournament to cull his or her catch after reaching the daily creel limit, by releasing a small fish and replacing it with a larger one.
