I have been in the tackle retail business since the age of 16 and have been fishing Lake Winnipesaukee since I was five years old. My passion for fishing and knowledge of the lake have been an essential part of operating the business. Seasonally, we’re open 7 days a week and I can be found in the store 95% of the time.

A.J.'s Fishing Report
September 27, 2014
As Salmon & Trout season nears an end September 30th on managed waters we want to thank all of our loyal and new customers for a great season! We have heard only good feedback from you regarding our new location and we are happy too.
Fishing season doesn't end as there are lakes & ponds that are open year round and will offer some great Bass & Perch fishing until we start hard-water season.
Click the picture below for a list of year round lakes & ponds in NH.
Bass fishing is good! Smallies are at 15-25' deep during the day so try fishing the drop offs and marker buoys, they are on top in the evening. Largemouth Bass are in the weeds within the heavy cover.
Live Bait is working great (Worms, Hellgrammites & Crayfish)
Rubber worms (Bitters & Yamamotos) Night fishing is good for Bass with black Jitterbugs & Hula Poppers.
A popular 'fly-fishing only' area is the mouth of the Merrymeeting River as it enters into Alton Bay, this offers catch & release for Salmon until October 31st.
As always, send us your fish pics!
