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
February 25, 2015
Fishing is good! We have seen lots of nice sized Rainbows over 5lbs and several average and good sized Lakers (19”-31")being caught. Black Crappie have been biting good and the White Perch are starting. Click on our facebook page here for current fishing pictures.
Ice conditions are great with 10+ inches of ice throughout the state however, there is an abundance of snow on the ice. The snow depth ranges from 12"-20" with huge snowdrifts on Lake Winnipesaukee. Traveling around the lakes would be best by snowmobile, tracked ATV or walking...also a possible chance of maneuvering around with chains on a 4WD ATV but all other travel would be difficult. A.J.'s DOES NOT encourage motor vehicles on the ice whatsever! There are many pressure ridges and cracks so please use extreme caution while traveling.
The following rules should be followed to ensure ice safety:
PLEASE USE CAUTION!!!
