I drew a tag for the 2016 season. 6 points prior to the drawing. My last URL tag was 2009 and there was one year along the way that I forgot to apply. I speared the last 2 general seasons (2000 & 2005) as well as 09 and have yet to connect on the URL's.

The way it looks to me is last year 537 had 6 points 63 of them did not get a tag. 643 had 5 points and no one got a tag. So for 2016 there will be about 706 going for 500 tags. Not counting the 7 and 8 year.

@ OB.3 and others looking into URL tags…I had posted this information last year about this time. Took me awhile to find it.

I had got the chart for the 2015 season 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 looks like 63 spearers (out of 537) had 5pts going into the 2015 drawing, and they didn't get a tag. So if you believe you’ve got 6pts already, you’re likely only 1 of 63 spearers. As long as you applied for a tag (not just a point) or not part of a group (with members with less points) you’ll be a lock for a 2016 tag on URL’s.

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 only 5 preference points. It also looks as if there could be a possible 643 applicants with 5pts for the 2016 season. So if you only have 5pts, you’ve got 66% chance of getting a tag for this season.

If you only have 4pts, you will not get a tag for February 2016. Unless a lot of spearers with 5 or 6 points opt out of the drawing.

After the drawing results are in for 2016, Ryan will likely email that information out. I’ll post it once he does.

Anyone looking for a 6x8 Winnebago lift for a shack. Took my ice shack off of mine and would like to sell it.

12-13 years based on the roughly 6,000 people that apply for 500 tags.

Last tag I had was 13' and I had 3 points, so 4 yrs. I've been upriver twice since lotto and seen 6-10 fish each season, none were over 25# since then haven't applied so you have gained another spot.

the car radio was first to be installed, I don't know how this sport is even possible without listening to jerry and the sturgeon queen!!

I had peeps telling me a CB antenna won't work on a shack cause there is no ground, I have it on a frame with a tongue up in the air, so I would think that's enough.

When I used a CB I bolted the fiberglass one right to the shack and it worked great.. I just removed it and put a car antenna on the bracket that the CB antenna was on. Radio works awesome also, Jerry Schneider will come in real good now.

Doing a little off season work installing CB in shack. Does anybody know if I can use a standard fiberglass antenna bolted to the frame? Will it get a descent ground? Or do I need to use a no ground plane antenna? I'd rather a standard, since no ground antennas get about 80% less reception distance and cost quite more.

Was a pretty quick season for us. Saw a small one on opening day. Sunday got a nice male on Poygan. First time got the fish on camera. Still trying to load it on youtube. Although I have detachable spear heads only once have I had it release. Never had a fish roll off of it either, just wears the fish out quicker. Still looking for one of those 6 tine spears if someone knows who makes them.
