Fresh Water Fishing Gear
Once you get your license, it’s time to get everything else. You will need at least a basic fishing rod and reel. There are kid-versions of these available, so if you are taking the whole family, you might want to look at smaller sets for the children. You will notice that there are a lot of options for fishing line. The best range to purchase is between 4-12 pound-test monofilament fishing line. You will also need a package of fishing weights and fish hooks. Hooks also come in a lot of sizes and varieties. You just need basic fish hooks ranging from number 6-10, depending on your needs. A plastic bobber or even a cork will do to suspend the bait in the water so you can catch your fish.
The bait is where some people get concerned. If you have never worked with live bait before, make sure to ask about plastic lures when you visit our Wolfeboro bait stores. There are wiggly rubber worms and fancy, colorful fish species-specific selections. If you don’t know what you need, don’t worry – our team will help you. We can even explain how to put it all together into a tackle kit or offer local tackle rentals to help get you started. After your first fishing trip or weekend in Wolfeboro out on the water, you can put together your fishing kit with the items listed in the previous paragraph. Live bait can consist of a lot of different things, including worms, Night Crawlers (very large worms), minnows, Canadian Crawlers, dillies, mealworms, and spike. Ask a helpful salesperson for assistance. We can let you know what the locals use the most and tell you which fish bite on each type of bait.
