Where to Go Fishing?
When it comes to fishing in the State of New Hampshire, it pays to know where to go. We have tons of beautiful lakes, ponds, rivers and streams that are just chock full of fish for you to catch while on an adventure in the local area. Start by visiting bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro, such as the Hole in the Wall on Main Street, to learn about popular fishing spots to help you learn where to go and what to avoid. If you have specific needs, such as New Hampshire boat rentals, make sure to ask about those as well. Many of the local shops rent equipment for year-round visitors, including seasonal ice fishing in Wolfeboro on Lake Winnipesaukee.
What are You Fishing For?
It is also important to know what fish are in season, which species needs to be thrown back, whether there are any limits, and what bait will work best to target these fish. Local tackle rentals and live bait stores can help you with some of these questions. You can also chat with local fishermen to get advice on what is biting, where they are located, and what they were biting on. Stop by area bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro for an assortment of lures and live bait. At Hole in the Wall, ask about our Salmon Package, which includes a boat rental, down rigger rods, life jackets and other local tackle rentals and options.
Which Gear is Best?
You might have brought your own fishing gear, but make sure to find out if you need anything extra from local bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro before you head out to the water. Get the right rod, the right reel, the baits that are being taken by local species, as well as any specialty equipment that might come in handy. Ask about local tackle rentals for equipment you want to try, but don’t necessarily want to buy. You can also get New Hampshire boat rentals of a wide variety at Hole in the Wall, so make sure to ask which boats will give you the most advantage for current fishing conditions.
Where to Stay?
Try to decide ahead of time if you want to stay in a local hotel, camp at one of the lakeside campsites or if you want to rent a cabin. Depending on when you come to the local area for New Hampshire boat rentals, the cabins and other camping areas may be full. The further in advance that you can plan the trip and coordinate your efforts with local tackle rentals, the more options you will have regarding accommodations during your stay.
Make sure to ask about options for other activities when you visit bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro. Hole in the Wall carries a wide variety of non-fishing sporting goods as well, including pickle ball equipment, corn hole bags and boards, dart boards and accessories, outside recreational games and much more.
