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
March 3, 2014
The ice on Lake Winnipesaukee is about 20+ inches thick almost everywhere with about 10" of snow on top with a crust and lots of ruts. Traveling around the lake is a little tougher with the conditions but snowmobiles and/or 4-wheeled vehicles should be alright.
Ice fishing is picking up again and with the warmer weather moving in fishing should be great!
Recommended areas on Lake Winni to fish are Kona Farm, Cummings Cove, Leavitt Park, Meredith Bay, Cattle Landing & Three Mile Island.
Lake Trout are being caught at Cattle Landing, White Perch catches at Black Cat and both Lakers and Rainbows at Leavitt Park.
Fishing has also been good at Lake Winnisquam with reports of nice Rainbows and Lakers!
Newfound Lake has reported several Lakers and some nice Cusk too!
Check out Lake Winona for Crappie, White Perch & Brookies.
