That's true on lakes that don't currently have stunting already happening. A lake has a biomass capacity period! I can take you to numerous lakes that would only benifit from such a tourney. However this format would need be applied to a lake in this category. While I agree with part of your theory it's not completely accurate. Simple facts are when bed fishing is allowed during spawn. Hogs flock to known big gill lakes and clean house.

Catch and kill tournaments should be outlawed. Nothing positive, aside from the fry (which can be had anywhere), will ever come of it.

Bass tournaments used to be like this, now they are gone and guess what, better bass fishing for all.

Encouraging the keeping of as many big panfish as possible is a recipe for disaster...specifically a stunted panfish population.

The root cause for stunting in gills is too few big males. Without them, small males fish mature too early, which slows or stops their growth. Bull gills prevent smaller males from maturing, and therefore are the number one thing needed to prevent stunting.
