Tournament Black Bass Pass

The tournament black bass pass may be purchased online, or any location where fishing and hunting licenses are sold.

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:

  1. In a weigh-in tournament conducted September 1 - June 15, anglers may have 2 fish as part of their 5 fish limit that meet the statewide 15-inch minimum length limit but are under a special length limit for the lake being fished. The 2 short fish must be released after weigh-in.
  2. In a weigh-in tournament conducted September 1 - June 15, anglers are allowed to cull fish even after they have reached their 5 fish daily creel limit.
