(1- Poor to 10 – Fantastic)






For any bass that you will be culling in the Pennsylvania water systems, the Cull-Buddy is strong enough and will handle the fish well. Up to 15 lbs per tag.



This is the only area that I can see a flaw in the product. For most guys this may not make a difference, but I don’t like exposed bolt heads on top of the boat carpet. See notes below.

Culling Fish


Since the tag is through the fishes lip, it makes it easy to use a balance beam to cull fish.



You get what you pay for when it comes to this product. It may be a little more expensive than other systems, but it is worth the money.



Currently, the only place that I have found the product is the cull-buddy website, but they will have them to you in the matter of days.

Mounts on livewell lid. Tag is through fishes lip.
Durable and strong. Bolt through carpet and exposed.
Colored and numbered tags.  
Can be used with any culling beam.  
Keeps boat more organized.  

NOTES: This is a great product based on a great idea.  You tag fish and put them in the livewell, so why not mount the tags in the livewell.  This helps keep the boat more organized and saves precious time when in a tournament.  It saves time by you not looking for tags and being able to hook the tag onto the culling beam.  As far as mounting is concerned, if you don’t mind seeing the 4 bolt heads on top of your carpet the livewell lid mount is great.  I don’t truly have a solution to this problem besides mounting it inside a compartment.  Which, mounting the system in the compartment will not help you save time on the water.  By using this product I guarantee that you save time and become a more efficient tournament fisherman.  Balance beam and scale are not included with the cull-buddy.

ABOUT THE CRITIC:  You must know that I am very critical of my lures.  I only have about 3 lures that I use that would receive a perfect 50 and I personally modify those lures once I have them.  I consider any lure over 40 great and any lure over 30 good.  Anything less than 30 and you probably won’t see it in my tackle box.
