Fellows, I believe that we need to add this rule to our the CFF Tx's! For instance, if come to the weigh in and have about 9 lbs. with my three largest fish which are all LM and I see that 15 ibs. is winning the Tx. and there is no way I going to finish in the top ten or so. But I also have a forth fish, a Spot in the live well. After seeing the early part of the weigh in and knowing what is leading, I then go back to my boat and cull out my smallest LM and put the Spot in the bag! Now I have a shot at Spot money! Culling should not be allowed at the ramp or dock. JMO! It's open for discussion.

I agree make a decision before you reach the dock!

It's a gamble on spots but I go for the weight over everything. It's a points trail, so why would you decrease weight with a smaller spot. JMO. Thanks for adding th hat to the rules!

It really keeps someone from having a big bag of fish that wins by four or five pounds from keeping a spot in reserve or a small mouth and not only winning the tournament but knocking other angler's out of money or a point or possibly a place in angler's of year. It forces a decision on the fly and not one with an unfair advantage at the ramp after you know what everyone else did. Kinda like playing cards with marked deck . You can win but at what cost.

Easy to fix- eliminate spot and SM and just go with 1 or 2 big bass. Can also add a 'no culling at the weigh-in location' etc. imo.

Yep no more than the number of fish that will be weighed in should be allowed to be kept captive at any time. I'm surprised this has not been a rule for a long time.

A few surprise livewell inspections would stop that problem.
