2020 NMMI Member’s Only Contest – Rules & Awards
REGISTERING YOUR FISH
All fish must be entered into the Lunge Log on the Muskie’s Inc. website (Log into Member’s Only Section > Lunge Log > Fish Submission > Fill out the form). Make sure to hit “Submit” only one time to avoid registering the same fish more than once. In addition, please disregard the “Release Patches and Individual and Annual Certificates” option (See Divisions & Prizes section below). All fish must be entered within 30 days of being caught to count in the contest.
4 points awarded to any 30” Muskie + ½ point for each ½” over 30” rounded to the nearest ½”.
DIVISIONS & PRIZES
The top 3 places in each division will receive an award. Winners can choose to defer their award, which will then be used as a prize for the North Metro Annual Banquet. In addition, Release Patches and Individual and Annual Certificates have been eliminated for the North Metro Member’s Only Contest, so please disregard this option when entering a fish in the Muskie’s Inc. Lunge Log.
