I was fishing a bass tournament and spent many hours fishing along shorelines and islands and it was great not fighting boat wakes all day. The other thing that really stood out was the way most of the waterfront properties blended beautifully within the wooded lots. At times you really had to look carefully to see the the house (mansions!) nestled in the woods.

Of course I spent an an inordinate amount with my face buried in the lake chart.... man, what a terrifying place to navigate!

Don't get me wrong I still love Winnie! variety is the spice of life methinks!



Squam is fun, but it will humble you.
My brother in law and I ran aground there in the 90s and there was NOTHING marking the rocks.

Fortunately, we were going slow, but I still ended up in the water pushing the boat (aluminum bass tracker) off the rocks. You can't sleep on that lake, but man, it is beautiful.
