I used a conservation culling clip at Tabke Rock this year. It cost me $30,000. Lol. When grabbing my catch from the live well, I've always grabbed me by the clip. As usual, I grabbed a 4 pounder by the clip and the clip broke right as I lifted it from the live well. It flopped right off the back of the boat and back into the water. That was day one. On day three I fought my way back and finished in 4th. I was out of first, and a new Nitro Z18, by less than 3 pounds. Losing that fish via a broken cull clip sucked. Now, I punch the hole. I figure two holes in a bass is ok for me.
