While there are some pretty crazy storms hitting the United States right now, believe it or not, there is no better time to start prepping for spring fishing than at this very moment. The more you can do to make sure that your custom fishing rods and reels, tackle box, and other equipment are ready to go, the faster you’ll be able to get “out there” when the time is right. While there are loads of people who enjoy winter fishing, it’s not for everyone. If you are waiting for the snow and ice to melt before coming up to New Hampshire, this is the guide for you.

Check Your Line
When is the last time you changed out your fishing line? Freshwater fishing is less harsh on a line than the constant sun and salt exposure that comes from saltwater fishing; however, you should still change your lines out at the end of the season. Depending on where you usually fish, you might need to change it more frequently. This is not the time or the place to go cheap. You count on your line to reel in your catch, so you want to make sure it can hold up. Make sure you have the right type of line for the type of fishing that you want to do. Switching from pond to lake fishing or fishing in different types of environments might require something new.
Clean Up Your Lures
Whether you have 100 different lures or just 12 that work best for the type of fishing that you do, it’s always a good idea to go through your lures to make sure everything is in good condition. Take time to sharpen or replace any hooks that have become damaged. If you discover any rust in your tackle box, it’s time to replace it. Rust in your tackle box could potentially weaken any of the hooks that are in there, so as soon as you find it – get rid of it. Shop for new lures in the offseason or stop to collect local favorites when you visit our bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro. We also have a wide selection of custom fishing rods and reels if you are looking to add to your collection or replace some worn out gear.
Repair Your Guides
When you take time to clean your rods and reels, make sure to look at the guides on your fishing rods. Check for any cracks or grooves and replace them with new guides. If you use roller guides, make sure everything is operating as it should and that the guides roll smoothly. If necessary, lubricate them or replace them if needed. Taking time to clean and repair your fishing rods and reels will help them to perform better and last longer. Don’t just toss them into a shed at the end of the season and expect them to be in good condition for your first spring fishing trip. Take the time to learn DIY tips for repairs, cleaning, and ongoing maintenance to increase the lifetime of your equipment.
