Build-A-Burbot: How to Make & Set a Cusk Line for Ice Fishing February 1st
Saturday February 1st 3-5pm | Squam Lakes Association | 534 US Route 3, Holderness
We will be going out onto the ice to make and set up our lines in accordance to the NH fish and game laws. Participants should feel free to bring materials to make their own lines! We are looking forward to getting out there and figuring out what all the fuss is about!
What to Bring:
You MUST bring lots of extra layers that can be taken off/added on to stay warm and dry, raingear, a hat, gloves/mittens and an extra pair of socks. We will be out at night in very cold and windy conditions with no cover. Prior to departure LRCC members will look your clothing/equipment to make sure you are adequately prepared. You also need a headlamp, any sort of medication you may need, warm boots, snowshoes or microspikes (dependent on conditions), snacks, and plenty of water. The SLA can provide snowshoes for up to six participants. Click here to view a list of SLA recommended gear for winter hiking.
Bring your own BAIT (larger bait will ensure smaller cusk aren’t getting on your line). Preferably live bait so larger minnows or white sucker, etc.
All ages welcome MUST HAVE A FISHING LICENSE. NO EXCEPTIONS
Anyone comfortable out at night in very cold temperatures for a few hours. There will likely be a lot of wind on the lake due to lack of tree cover. Not suitable for young children.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED: Limited to 5 participants. $10.00 charge for cusk line materials if not bringing your own. Please bring check or cash on day of program. Register

Light Paintin' and Stargazin' February 2nd
Sunday February 2nd 6:30-8:30pm | Squam Lakes Association | 534 US RTE 3, Holderness
Light painting is a unique photography technique that involves “painting” the air with a glow stick, flashlight, or glow sword, at night while a camera takes a long exposure shot of the artist. The result is the completed design of what you’ve drawn in the air as a glowing painting on a dark background. Typically, the person doing the painting is not visible. Depending on the moon light, you may faintly see yourself in the background, but that’s okay! While others are taking their turn in front of the camera, we will have two telescopes set up for star and planet gazing, as well as a hot chocolate dispenser to keep us cozy. If you wish to watch the sunset on Piper Cove, please arrive at 6:15, however the program does not officially begin until 6:30.
What to Bring:
Warm attire is required for this program. We will be out on the ice after dark and will not be moving around a whole lot, so your body will get cold quickly if you are not bundled up or have proper shoes. Microspikes are recommended in case there is not a layer of snow over the ice. The SLA can provide two additional pairs, one small and one medium.
This program is for all ages, no art experience necessary! Children must be accompanied by an adult
Registration required. Space is limited to 12
