Please use extreme caution venturing out there are still a lot of bad spot on the Lake and with the snow cover you will not be able to see them. With conditions the way they are if you have not been on any particular place recently you should carry an ice chisel and check the ice as you move around . The fishing here has been good with lots of great fish being caught . This weekend was the Islands fishing derby and some great fish where caught first place Walleye was 12.52 lbs. first place Salmon was over 5lbs. first place Northern Pike was over 15lbs. first place Lake Trout was just under 10lbs. all types of fish are biting well now so get out and enjoy the winter and the great fishing.

January 26 , 2017

The ice conditions around Lake Champlain are getting pretty poor at this point with very little freezing weather over the past 2 weeks there are still a few places to go but bring a chisel and check the ice as you go DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE THICKNESS OF THE ICE it is very weak you need to be on 8 to 10 inches right now to be safe because the top 4 to 6 inches is rotten . On a positive note the weather is going to tur colder in the next couple days and the ice will harden up and be much safer by next Monday Lake Trout , Northern pike , Walleye and most Panfish are biting very well now if you can get to them safely February should be an outstanding month for ice fishing so make plans now and catch some big ones. BE SAFE OUT THERE WHEN IN DOUGHT DONT GO OUT!

Yellow Perch , Sunfish and Northern Pike have been biting good in many of the ice covered bays around the Lake Champlain. Lake Trout , Salmon and Walleye have been slow on Lake Champlain due to the lack of ice on the good locations. Some of the Lakes in the area have been producing some nice Walleye and good catches of Yellow Perch .

Ice fishing is going full swing now with good ice in a lot of places some of the northern bays on Lake Champlain have over a foot of ice . Northern Pike and Yellow Perch are starting to bite well . The Salmon fishing on the main lake out of the boats has come to a stop for a few days because the fleet has to wait for the ice to move out of the boat ramp so they can back fishing there is still plenty of open water and willing fish when they get back out probably by the weekend when it warms back up a little . If you are in the Salem New Hampshire area this weekend January 11th and 12th please stop by our booth at the Rockingham Expo and say hi .

Even after the warm spell last week there is still some ice fishing to be had some of the northen bays on Lake champlain and most of the ponds have 6 to 14 inches of ice left on them. Northern Pike ,Yellow perch ,Sunfish ,Bluegills and Bass are biteing well in most of these places but please use extreme caution when ventureing out because most places have got some bad spots and the next warm up with any amount of sun and wind will most likely bring an end to the ice fishing season. Now the main lake is open and some acesses are ice free the Brown trout have been biteing a little bit in shallow water less than 12 feet. Lake trout should be biteing also in the shallows the Salmon have not turned on much as of yet but it should start to pick up soon. We will be doing charters in April on our 22 foot Crestliner hard top boat for groups of up to 3 people. Lake Trout and Salmon fishing at this time of year usually is outstanding if you would like to do a trip please give me a call 1-802-324-2289 thank you Captain Brian

Ice conditions here are starting to go down hill this past weekend several cars and 4 wheelers went through the ice but if you use caution you can still find enough ice to have a good fishing trip. Northern Pike are moving into the bays now and starting to bite well Yellow Perch, Sunfish ,Crappie and Bluegills are all biteing well now. I think we have about 2 weeks of ice fishing left unless it turns cold. So open water fishing should start in early April at wich time we will be doing charters on our 22 foot Crestliner boat for groups of up to 3 people and starting May 1st with our 28 1/2 foot Baha Sport fishermen boat for groups of up to 6 people if you would like to get out and do some spring fishing for Salmon and Lake Trout give me a call 1-802-324-2289 Captain Brian
