Lake Winnipesaukee Ice Fishing Derby

With Lake Winnipesaukee frozen over, ice fishing enthusiasts from all over are flocking to New Hampshire’s Big Lake for a chance to catch their share of lake trout. When all the boats are stored for the season, there is still plenty of opportunity to throw a line in and enjoy a refreshing beer or beverage. Ice fishing offers the perfect activity to enjoy all of the beautiful scenery in the heart of winter on Lake Winnipesaukee. You certainly don’t need to wait until summer to get your fish on.

Aside from the peace and relaxation that comes with ice fishing, the sport includes plenty of opportunities for social interaction. So, bring out the friends and family, spark up a charcoal grill and enjoy cooking lunch on the lake with a hot cocoa or cold beer in hand.

Another added benefit of this winter sport is how much cheaper it is to ice fish. With the surface frozen over, you don’t need a boat to get out into the middle of the lake. With no boat, comes no cost for fuel or repairs, just take your equipment and head on out.
