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.

West Depere was the only group I seen that had Lawn games going on the ice all day. I envy the fun and relaxed atmosphere they created. Some of us are in it to win it, others just want to have fun. We all love the sport
LOST AND FOUND
-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.
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.

I spoke with Nancy the other day and she had said she will be there Saturday to make sure people are paying the launch fee and will open up at about 11am. She said it would not be a problem if people use her launch as long as they respect the launch fee. Those that have registered for the event have another access point that we have spoken with the private land owners. This lake technically has no public access.
If you haven't been told of where to launch for the WIFA event contact your coach, they should know.
