$15 dollar launch fee. Lol.. That's crazy. Thanks for the heads up. $5 per day/ $40 per year is the most I would pay also. At least when i buy a state park sticker you have access to plenty of landings.

Yes you can launch at the old Tiki place. But bring your paycheck! It now costs $15!!!!!! Yes, $15!!!!!!!! Bar is under new owners who obviously have their heads up their @$$. Yes, you get $5 off at the bar, but screw that! You still pay $10 and get a nasty burger. If the lake was better fishing, maybe, but for snake northerns, hell no. Heard the lake was restocked recently, good to know the northerns will have some more food. LoL $7 is a little better, but please, $5 should be the normal price. I know many fisherman I've discussed this with and they all will no longer be going to this bar or lake. The bar owner needs to wake up and rethink his money making greedy ways.

Fished the IBEW 2150 tourney at nan seas on Sat. Caught several northern, none over 18". Watched a guy fall in walking. There was a hidden 3 ft hole under the snow in about 8 ft of water. Thinking an old fishing hole that got huge with all the rain water running in. Also heard one other guy fell in a similar hole on a different part of the lake. Over 12 ins everywhere we drilled.

I fished this lake back in December I did well since then I've wanted to come back but it's a lengthy drive. Where is the ideal place to park at Nan Seas? I was very confused the first time I was there. PM me if you would like. Thanks.

Congratulations to all the particpants in the fish tournament.  Wasn't on the lake Saturday but weather great!  Spent 10 hours on lake Thursday; drove out from NanSea's w/ no issues and paid her fee.   Launch area in great shape.  Activity slow early but picked-up once snow stopped and sun started coming through clouds.  Son caught 32-inch northern on tip-up and large golden mid-day.  Oddly no typical snakes caught.  Towards dusk caught 2 BIG walleyes on medium shiners.  ALOT of light hits and flags as sun went down.  Finally some snow on lake to make walking around easier.

Waupun was one of the teams that participated in Ted's tournament yesterday and I am the head coach.  Lots of kids and coaches on the ice and from what I observed the kids were focused and friendly.  As we fish more tournaments it is nice to see more of the coaches and kids from other teams and hopefully we become lifelong friends. Our goal is similar, to get kids outdoors and teach them ethical and responsible techniques.   While these are competitions it is fun to see more experienced fisherman help out the newbies.  Fishing is a life long sport as one gentleman I met at a store reminded me this week.  Thank you to Ted and all of the coaches for molding the future of the next generation with a healthy activity.

Great job kids and coaches. Lawn games on the ice sounds like a great time. Way to make memories and teach the kids.

-near cambelsports area i found a jig pole with kastmaster on it, if your kid can describe it i will bring it back to them. 
-near home base- 8" auger cover brand new.  My auger went home with me without a cover.
-I drove the entire lake and only found 2 soda cans and 1 bottle.   That's with 170 people fishing on the lake.   We should be proud!!!!  Many kids caught there 1st ever fish thru the ice.

Itchin,

I am a coach of a team that has fished the tournament for 3 years. The live weigh in is for panfish.  They need to be put in a bucket of water and released after weigh in or kept as is legal.  All gamefish are measured and released and catch and release is encouraged.  Our organization is investigating how we can stock the lakes we fish,  Does any other fisheree do that?  I conducted a tournament on Lake Emily last weekend.  Hundreds of fish were caught and released.  

Instead of complaining about the details of a tournament,  look at all of the good things that this organization is doing.  Personally I emphasize catch and release of all large gamefish and responsible harvest of panfish for food.  Look at our website at studentfishing.com or type in WIFA in our Facebook page for more details.
