    Here are the updated 2015 musky contest standings, 50 inchers registered by FRV’ers in 2015 and Illinois muskies over 45 inches registered by club members this year based on Lunge Log entries made as of about 9:30 am on December 29. There are 2-1/2 days left in the year. It ain’t quite over yet.

    I was just looking at the list of 50’s and it’s amazing that 6 different people boated multiple 50’s this year. Klaus with 5, including 3 on consecutive days one trip and 2 on consecutive days during another trip; Rich with 3 (2 on the same day); Cathy with 3 (2 on the same day); Steve with 2 caught on consecutive days, Mike with 2 and John with 2. 11 others caught one each for a total of 28 fiddy’s in 2015, 7 more than in 2014 by FRV’ers!

    Catch and release…it’s a beautiful thing!

    Congratulations to everyone who caught 50’s this year (and 40’s and 30’s too)!

    Here is a comparison between 2014 and 2015 based on fish registered to date.

    Year                                           2014                          2015

    Muskies Registered                736                             668

    Ave Length                               38.44″                        38.97″

    IL Muskies Registered           241                              182

    Ave Length                               37.12″                        37.35″

    It appears the numbers have dropped, but if you deduct the 66 or so fish registered by one guy last year who did not register any fish this year, the numbers are very similar. The average size has slightly increased from last year. Catch and release probably the No. 1 reason. The number of fish over 45″ registed from IL was 9 in both 2014 and 2015.
