Tournament Black Bass Pass
Please note: Each individual wishing to utilize the Tournament Black Bass Pass must purchase this permit, regardless of age or exemption status.
Anglers participating in a weigh-in tournament who hold a tournament black bass pass (TBBP) are given two privileges:
- In a weigh-in tournament conducted September 1 - June 15, an angler may keep five 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.
- In a weigh-in tournament conducted September 1 - June 15, an angler is allowed to cull his or her catch after reaching the daily creel limit, by releasing a small fish and replacing it with a larger one.
