Squam Lakes Natural Science Center

The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness uses all unclaimed Derby fish to feed otters, bears, eagles and other animals at the Center throughout the winter. On Sunday afternoon a team from the Center picks up all the frozen fish and takes them to the Center where are transformed into delectable treats: The osprey really love perch and the otters love “troutsicles.” Click on the link to the left to visit their site.

The Tackle Shack

We opened our store back in December of 2010 wanting to be a destination, not a convenience over-priced store. The Tackle Shack has been stocked with what our customers use and has built a knowledge of the lakes and rivers in New Hampshire. We have stores at both Sunapee Lake and at Lake Winnipesaukee. The Tackle Shack is also a wholesaler dealer for live bait and supplies covering the New Hampshire area.
