There is nothing more exciting and freeing than coming to the beautiful lakes of New Hampshire, renting a boat, and spending your time out on the water. Whether you fish, play, explore or just enjoy warming up in the sun, Wolfeboro boat rentals can help you make your vacationing dreams come true. You can also rent or purchase custom fishing rods and reels, along with specialized Lake Winnipesaukee fishing tackle and bait. Everything you need for a fun vacation out on the lake can be found at the Hole in the Wall bait and tackle store.
What You Need to Know
So before you hop on a plane or get in your car to make your way to New Hampshire, make sure to take some time to review the following tips that will help your trip be a success. The more you can take care of at home online or over the phone, the easier the rest of your trip will be when you arrive. You can make reservations for dock rentals or boat rentals in Wolfeboro, just as you would a camp site or hotel. There are some things you will need to do before you arrive, so set aside some time to get it done.
Tip #1 – Safety Course & Certificate
Many people don’t realize that they need to take a boating safety course and get a temporary boating certificate if they are 16 years or older and will be operating a motor boat that is over 25 horsepower. This applies to motorized Wolfeboro boat rentals and includes personal watercraft (PWC), such as ski craft.
You can take the course online and you must carry the card and have it in your possession when operating a vessel on Lake Winnipesaukee or any other body of water in the State of New Hampshire. Not carrying it or having one can result in a fine. One bonus is that if you take the boating safety course, you may also be able to save money on your PWC or boaters insurance.
Tip #2 – Plan Your Trip
Make sure to leave your contact information with the boat rental company and let someone know whenever you go out on the water. Safety should always be a priority. Before you go out on the lake, you should become familiar with a map of the area so you will know where you are and where you want to go. Invest in a good map of the area. While you might have a great GPS or map on your smartphone, you should never rely fully on electronics to get you where you need to be.
Tip #3 – Life Jackets & Vests
Every single person on the boat with you needs to be wearing a life jacket or vest that fits them properly and is rated for use out on the lake. When you stop to get custom fishing rods and reels at the Hole in the Wall, make sure to ask about life jackets for the whole family. You wouldn’t head out to the lake without your Lake Winnipesaukee fishing tackle and bait, so why would you go boating without the proper gear? Even if you are a good swimmer, accidents can happen. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Tip #4 – Safeguard Your Stuff
Whatever you decide to bring out on the boat, including electronics like cell phones, tablets, handheld games or even fish finders, make sure to keep them safe and protected. Consider getting waterproof cases for your phones or at least get a waterproof box to put all of your electronics in while you are out on the lake. Cell service will likely be spotty in some areas, as Lake Winnipesaukee is a very large body of water, so you might not even be able to use your GPS or other apps while out on the lake.
Tip #5 – Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions
If you have any questions about our boat rentals in Wolfeboro or if you aren’t sure what type of custom fishing rods and reels would be best for catching the fish available in our lake, make sure to ask. The friendly and helpful staff at Hole in the Wall are very happy to help you navigate the waters and ways of New Hampshire. You can even give us a call ahead of your trip to ask questions, reserve Wolfeboro boat rentals, purchase Lake Winnipesaukee fishing tackle and more.
