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
August 15, 2016
Salmon & Trout fishing is good and we are into a summer pattern of catching larger fish. The thermocline is around 45-50' for the Salmon & Rainbow Trout but Lakers will be hiding in the deeper holes around 60'-80'.
Smallmouth Bass are at the drop off's at depths of 25-30' and are aggressively feeding around deep structure. Target the smallies on the deeper side of the marker buoys.
Worms & Lizards
Night-time fishing is good with black Jitterbugs and Hula Poppers.
Live bait such as Hellgrammites & Crayfish are HOT!!
Salmon are feeding at depths of 40'-60' over the deeper waters using spoons and flies with downriggers or 9-10 colors of lead core. Weirs Beach, Lockes Island, Shep Browns, Sandy Island, North East side of Governors Island and Black Cat Island are the HOT spots on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Top Gun, BB & Mini Guns:
Yellow & Orange
White Perch fishing at sunset has been GREAT from the surface to 25' deep.
