My cousin is trying to convince me to come up to winni and fish 19 mile bay or somewhere around wolfboro, we'll be on foot, anyone been out there in the last day or two and know how those areas are holding up?

Thank you, Simone. lol

Still researching conditions but I'll likely try winni this weekend. I have a spot on Mousam that's great in the spring but reports on the edges are bad and it's a jackpot snow total area. I'll go farther north if I have to but I'd be fishing pretty blind with no experience past Silver. Sunapee's another option.

16 inches on winter harbor yesterday. Edges were shot at my access point and needed waders to get on. Pre storm white perch bite was excellent. A lot of emergency vehicles over by Libby Museum towards dark. A few groups were out in this area. Not sure what happened as I was further up the bay?

If there is still over a foot of ice in the lakes region, and probably some refreezing over the next few days/nights, you could still be on the ice in April!
Just can't fish the trout/salmon waters after the 1st.

I might head back up for one more go-around in the next couple of weekends....

May try winni again this weekend, Ive only been once But I thought it was weird that we jigged two and got no flags, Is winni like sebago in that jigging is the way to go? Maybe the depth was off on my tip ups.

my two flags at winni were hit-and-spit and a smallie last weekend. did well on jawjackers and jigging. conversely in February all my hits were on tip-ups. Weird, wacky winni

When i was up there we did better on the jig rod vs live bait/tilts. I think it was 6 on the jig and 3 on the tilts.
Just add water.

I have 120 (and counting) reasons this year to suggest jigging is better than traps for lakers.   ;D

Nice!

Yeah I was not complaining when I got 4 on the jig rod the first time chasing them with sub par rods and gear. Seems that 120-160ish lakers is about the high season norm, at least from some posts here on IS.

im looking for any info on small lakes in the Gilmanton to freedom side..if anybody is willing to share can you send me a pm...for saturday
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Hey guys. I was hoping to try Lake Tarleton this weekend for the first time this year. Is the ice still holding up? We will be on foot.

That's good to hear.  Soild edges would be nice. It would be good to leave the plank at home
