No a 50cc is not enough with a 42" bar to cut ice safely. Mine is 112cc. the ice cuts easy its the water that causes a problem. The more power you have the better off you will be.

Was wondering what size power head you folks use on a 42" bar for cutting holes? Is a 50cc saw large enough? Thanks Jesse

Wish I could be giving you a scouting report but I have a question. I'm finishing up my sturgeon shanty and looking to side it. I was wondering where I would be able to get the tin that some guys use to side the shack? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!!

Would like to 2nd that point...what a great job by spearers, the DNR, SFT, and many others.

My 65.9 inch, 86.1 pound, F4 was estimated at 44 years old. Speared on opening day.

No tags.

Received my info back this past weekend from the PIT tag in the 84.1LB 67in F1 sturgeon I speared day 4 of the 2014 season. The fish was tag at the Shawano Dam on May 1st 2013 and was 66.5in at that time. I speared it Feb 11th 2014 on the west side Zone 5. They aged the fish at 46yrs old. They also stated in the letter that harvest numbers will go up again this year as the population in the system is very healthy. My hats off to the DNR for the great work they are doing managing this awesome resource so we can continue to enjoy this great sport for years to come. It is very interesting to get your info back each year from tagged fish or when they take a fin sample for aging.

3 months 2 weeks til the 20015 season lol

Sorry for the timing on this post, but I have an ice shanty design issue.

Does anyone know what the minimum and maximum spacing on the bridges used by West Shore Club is?

Got an update from Ryan Koenigs. See the attached chart he provided. The chart shows the number of applicants and tag winners by the number of preference they had. It must add a preference point before the drawing (as stated by MuskieHunter930 as well).

It looks like 63 spearers (out of 537) had 5pts going into the 2015 drawing, and they didn't get a tag. It might be possible that some of them entered the drawing as part of group with spearers with less than 5pts. In which case they wouldn't get a tag (like the 8 people who had 6pts and the 2 people who had 7pts before the drawing and they didn't get tags)

If I'm reading the chart correctly for the 2016 season, there will be at least 427 tags left for the spearers going into the drawing with 5 preference points (there could be a possible 643 applicants for the 2016 season with 5 points). But who knows if a number of people with points already forgot or didn't apply for a tag in 2015. They wouldn't lose their points for not applying for 1 year.
