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.

@ OB.3 (and others asking about the URL drawing)

back on 3/7/2014 I had posted the information on drawing a tag for URL that I got in email from Ryan Koenigs. Take a look if you want to see the chart. Part of the email from Ryan stated the following:

"So looking ahead to 2015 season, applicants will need at least 5 preference points to draw a permit, but not all applicants with 5 will receive a permit."

I've just emailed Ryan to see if he could provide an updated chart with the 2015 numbers. I'm going to guess that somewhere around 150+ applicants had 5 points going into the 2015 drawing and they didn't get a tag. So for 2016, if you've got 6pts, you'll get a tag. For 2016, there might be about 800+ spearers going into the drawing with 5pts however. Meaning that 350 of them will get a tag and 450 will not. This is just my guess. I'll post a reply if/once I get one from Ryan.

Looks like the Muskie/Musky Hunters will be hunting some upriver girls!

I had five prior to this year and with this application year it was put in for six. I checked last week on the DNR website and it stated six points, no permit awarded, so they added the point for this year as well prior to the "drawing". I must have checked right before the drawing. Just got the fee paid and the permit is on its way. Big Smile

I heard of others in the same year class as I, who did not get it so the drawing isn't just alphabetical I guess. Worried
