Planning a fishing trip on the lake in mid-summer requires a bit of knowledge about the species of fish that you want to catch while you are on Lake Winnipesaukee. New Hampshire boat rentals can help you to get to the best spots in the lake to find small and largemouth bass, as well as other popular types of fish. You can rent Lake Winnipesaukee fishing tackle if you don’t bring your own or you can purchase your own custom fishing rods and reels all at the NH Hole in the Wall in Wolfeboro. We have everything you need to have a great time out on the lake, including the best lures and live bait in New Hampshire.
Go Deep for Bigger Fish
As the temperature heats up in the middle of summer, the bigger fish often go to the deeper waters where it’s cooler. Bass have distinct water temperature preferences, so if you head out on the lake and have difficulty locating them, consider using a fish finder or ask a local. There are lots of great gadgets available that you can use to view the fish under the water where you purchase your Lake Winnipesaukee fishing tackle. While some consider this to be “cheating,” others just see it as a strategy. While bass are known to hang out where there is lots of underwater growth or debris to catch their prey, it’s a good idea to start looking for spots that fit this bill that are in cooler waters.

Buy or Rent Quality Tackle
Finding the fish and getting to the fish is essential, but if you don’t have the right tackle or bait in your boat, you’ll never get the job done and land that monster fish. Whether you are an experienced angler or if you have never hooked your own worm before, the NH Hole in the Wall has all of the tackle boxes, lures, flies, custom fishing rods and reels, live bait, safety gear, tools, and equipment you’ll need for your trip. When it comes to tackle rentals, contact one of our team members in advance of your trip to see what’s available. You might want to bring some of your special lures, but won’t necessarily have to haul all your gear here in your vehicle or on an airplane when you come to New Hampshire.
Live Bait in New Hampshire – Never ever bring live bait from another state when you travel for a fishing trip. There are laws and regulations from the Department of Fish & Game that regulate the type of bait that can be used. Don’t even chance getting a fine (or worse) just to bring your bait with you across state lines. These regulations are in place to protect the local fish and wildlife from invasive species and other animals that might cause damage.
