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
April 23, 2017
Salmon & Trout fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee is great! The big lake is open and again proving to produce some healthy, good sized fish this season. We have seen some hefty salmon already!
Caught 4/22/17 with smelt.
Lots of nice Rainbows being caught from docks & bridges on Lake Winni too! See our Facebook Page for more pictures.
It's trolling season and salmon are biting from the top down to 20', 3-4 colors on Leadcore. Popular hardware for catching are horizontal and vertical attractors with Top Guns, BB Guns, Suttons & A.J.'s custom streamer flies. As always LIVE bait works great too!
Hot Colors for hardware:
Streamer Flies (tandem)
Shore anglers can fish the Winnipesaukee River, which flows through the Weirs channel into Paugus Bay and through the Lakeport Dam/Lake Opechee area.
Other areas include the Long Island Bridge in Moultonborough, Governors Island Bridge in Gilford, Smith River inlet at Wolfeboro Bay, and Meredith and Center Harbor town docks. At these locations, everything from smelt, shiners and worms under a slip bobber to small jigs will take salmon, as well as rainbow trout and an occasional lake trout.
~ LIVE BAIT: SMELT, Golden Shiners (Small, Medium, Large).
Worms (Dillies, Crawlers & Trout Worms).
~ 2017 Hunting/Fishing Licenses & OHRV registrations. (ONLY CASH OR CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR LICENSES AND REGISTRATIONS)
