my son jack and i are doing homework for his fishing tournament this weekend on squam lake. hoping some fellow anglers out there are able to help with any fishing tips, locations if possible regarding what the large and small mouths are doing this week.
thanks in advance, Jack and Jim
I have not been on the lake since May, but we got into some smallies out between Birch Island and Loon/Little Loon Islands. They might be deeper now?
I've never caught any largemouth in Squam, but I did see a guy catch a 5 pounder while I was fueling up at Squam Livery. He caught it right off the dock in the channel. You can't fish the channel from a boat though. I've been told that Squaw Cove might hold some largemouth. Maybe Rattlesnake Cove too? Good luck.
I'm not a bass fisherman, but they have caught some nice bass at the point between Cotton Cove and Glen Cove (Kesumpe Cove).
The bass are in deeper waters, and I see Bass fisherman in deeper water. Also saw some off Birch. Try the area that was mentioned above.
Try Cotton Cove in Little Squam too and Squam River. There are a few Tournements that release in Cotton Cove after the weigh in, one was a few weeks ago..
get all set up for salmon fishing (6-9 colors, 32-45' on the riggers) use all the usual salmon spoons and troll between 2.2 and 2.8 and you should get into the bass and maybe catch an occasional salmon or rainbow. Works for us and we aren't even trying for bass!!!!
Tournaments release a lot of bass in Cotton Cove, and we also find a large number of dead bass after any bass tournaments.
