Hit winnipesaukee today with my first charter of the season and we kicked her off in style.

My crew was 3 guys from california that took the red eye out of LA, landed in logan before 6am, and hit their first patch of ice ever by 9am.

We landed 15 lakers 3 white perch and 1 smallmouth bassy from 9:30-3:30 Surprisingly good mid day action.

Darius, Will and Steve with supper.

Fished winnipesaukee again today.

Another BEAUtiful day, sure it was 5 below to start but thats just a number, the sun came out and the wind stayed away and it was wicked pissah...

My Burly crew from Boston kicked it off with a cusk on the jig before sunrise and then added 22 lake trout and a fatty yellow perch for good measure.  They kept 4 lakers, the cusk and the perch.

Had a great crew from mass today. Dad 2 boys and a buddy.

Cold start, windy, right about 0 degrees. Sun was a welcome sight today.
All tip-up action today. Bite has been starting at 8:10 for the last four days, no early fish to be caught.
The guys caught 13 Lakers, 3 whites, and 4 yellow yummies. They kept a few of each to eat.

I am new to fishing for coldwater species a few words of advice would be helpfull. Do the fish seem to be coming from any particular depth as of lately? Do you set up a few feet from bottom most times?  I assume you are using smelt for bait?  I set out a trap in shallow for rainbows with a salmon egg and then jigged for lakers in about 30 feet of water with no luck yesterday evening just out of wolfeboro bay.  Used a bucktail jig yellow and red with a piece of yellow perch belly.  I have read some earlier posts that pieces of smelt on a jig have worked for you in the past maybe cut sucker.  I am really looking forward to that first laker through the ice!  Thanks for your insight.

Fished today with Steve Rachel Kerri and Nick. Honeymooners from Jersey, what a woman!!! It was snowing...... You think?

We landed over a dozen trout but I lost count and a few whities. They kept 3 trout and 2 whites. We cooked 1 of the whites on the grill they brought. It was a naked, skin on fillet, on the bare grill for about 4 mins and it was fantastic, sweet even. Bare handed off the grill rack like real men do!

Bite started at 830 like usual this week.



Thanks again Adrien. We had a blast. I was really impressed with your whole operation and especially your fishing ability and professionalism. You made us feel really safe out in spite of white out conditions and it being pretty early season ice.  We all thought it was a great experience. The lake trout tasted amazing… we ate it all back at the room. I hope we can do it again some time! Steve Cherry 1-18-11

this time of year 4-44 feet is good but i would say 34 is best right now.

3 feet from bottom

Smelt

Red/yellow and yellow/green bucktails are my fav. with sucker meat on them or a whole smelt.
Not sure if you are allowed to use yellow perch meat on a jig, i never did, might want to check that one?

Been a mostly tip-up bite for me little action on the jig.

Be careful of what you use for cut bait. I believe that you can't use spiny fish  as bait ,be it for chum or any bait.

Thank you for the fishing tips I will let you know how it turns out.

The bait issue: from now on I will play it safe and refrain from using spiny fish as bait although I did look up the rules on F&G's site. They list the species that are legal to fish with when live they make no distinction to using dead fish unless it is an interstate water with Maine.  I know guys who use the eyes from perch.  At any rate smelt and suckers seem to be the go to and I will not take any chances I just thought it was interesting when I did look up the rules as far as I could see.

http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/Fishing/baitfish_species.htm

In the rules for interstate waters with Maine that:

No more than 5 lines are permitted at any one time while ice fishing (EXCEPTION: Great East Lake).
No dead or living pickerel, goldfish, yellow perch, white perch, bass, sunfish, crappie, horned pout, carp, or any spiny-finned fish shall be taken, sold, or possessed for use as bait for fishing in New Hampshire-Maine interstate waters.

Happy Fishing!

YOAdrien Charters Lake Winnipesaukee New Hampshire Ice Fishing Guide 1-23-11

And i thought yesterday was good.....

Dave Ciaran and John Put the hammer down and never let off all day. This is the second trip out with me for these guys and rainbows were on the agenda. Remember, Dave almost killed me with his Chile Last year, well i sure do. Anyway 21 Healthy rainbows found their way to the hole today but oddly enough only 1 white and 1 yellow perch came up? It was non-stop action all day. All tip-ups, all smelt, all weekend. They kept 4 and 1 made its way onto the grill for snack-time.

John from Gloucester with a great Rainbow Just about tickled 19 inches.


The guys with a scrapper early in the morning.

21 rainbows that is incredible, no wonder they booked another trip with you. I've asked for advice several times and I can't think of anyone better to answer what is working at any given time.  I will say your advice for lakers paid off for me this weekend using smelt and tip ups in that 34' foot range, so thank you for that.  Sound like rainbows prefer the tip up presentation too, I've heard they like sandy bottoms and to fish them close to shore in a few feet of water in most cases.  Other than that do you look for areas that have current, near bubblers, have access to deep water?  Also do you prefer using circle hooks when fishing with live bait the lakers i caught swallowed my regular size 6 baitholder hooks.  I have had issues with circle hooks in the past maybe I am setting the hook wrong? Thanks again Adrien, your the man.  Next few days going to be frigid hopefully it will help the ice situation a bit.

YOAdrien Charters Lake Winnipesaukee New Hampshire Ice Fishing Guide

Steve and sharon wanted to go for white perch today so we gave it a shot. First rod in and a whitie hits the jig, well you know thats bad luck....... Anyway we ran through 6 dozen minnows and caught tons of fish but mostly micro-yellows. The tally at the end of the day for eating size fish was 3 nice whites, 3 nice smallmouth,  2 nice rainbows and 10 eatin size yellows. So all in all a great day of fishing never went 1 minute all day with out a flag or 4 up at a time.
We grilled up a nice rainbow for lunch, i knew the second he came in he had a big fat senko stuck in his gut and sure enough he did, his stomach was just full of 1 senko, nothing else would fit in it, if you didn't know i HATE SENKOS!!!!!!

 I know what you mean I see a ton of them on the bottom when I dive the body of water you were on today. Darn things should be outlawed.
