Ice Fishing on Suncook Lake


Winter in NH is a wonderful time of the year. The state is covered in a blanket of white snow making the landscape a photographers dream especially after a fresh snow fall.

What to do on a winters day in NH ?

I have a bucket list to fill every winter that includes a ton of outdoor activities.  Trips to my favorite ski areas. Loon, Ragged, Sunapee, Cannon and Gunstock are my favorite go to areas. I do have a snowmobile and if you don't have one you can rent one for a day of exploring. You can travel the entire state on your sled on wonderfully groomed trails, while out on your sled pack along your snowshoes to further explore areas of wilderness not accessible by snowmobile. We try to make a day of it bringing along a grill to cook up some hamburgers and warm cider trail side.  If you have never ice fished with the family you are missing fast action with the tip-ups popping constantly and the kids racing from trap to trap to watch the line go stripping out.  While on this adventure do bring along your ice skates and grill. Don't laugh ice fishing is a blast, go with a family member or friend who has all the gear, especially a time saving ice auger.  Snowshoeing is fun and a ton of exercise. Plan a short trip to start and I guarantee you will find sore muscles the next day you never thought you had.  If you don't have snowshoes you can rent them.  You can travel out on existing snowmobile paths or live a little and head into the back country. Bring lunch, plenty of water, a map of the area plus a compass, you are not going to get lost as you can easily backtrack out.  As my bucket fills I often dream about adventures that I may never get around to.  Ice climbing, there are some climbs that are easy to extreme this one I don't think will happen. One that  I would love to try is ice sailing. While out ice fishing or snowmobiling I have seen these boats going zipping by at incredible speeds. Ice sailing is a must try for me.   For those a little less adventurous you can take the tramway to the top of Cannon Mountain with the skiers and enjoy the vistas at the top and the skiers making their way down the mountain, on a clear day you can see almost to Canada. A trip into Manchester to watch the Monarchs play, great semi pro hockey at the Verizon Center or just a shopping trip to Merrimack, Tilton or North Conway for lunch or shopping at the outlet stores.
