Ring perch, burbot (spookaleetz in Okanagan), and I'm guessing whitefish.  Looks like mighty good eating.  You go catchum in that cold, and when you get back, I'll help eatum!

Those perch are definitely going to be some good eating. I'll help you eat them also LOL. What is laying in the snow there? Hard to tell what those are.

We call them cusk,  they also called them poor man's lobster:

"The burbot is the only gadiform freshwater fish. It is also known as bubbot, mariah, freshwater cod, freshwater ling, freshwater cusk, the lawyer, coney-fish, lingcod, and eelpout. The species is closely related to the marine common ling and the cusk. It is the only member of the genus Lota"

 Cusk fishing has some strange rules in New Hampshire :

"The usual method employed by anglers is night fishing with cusk lines. A cusk fishing line is defined as a device for storing line, which is not free running and will hold enough Dacron or squidding line to reach bottom in the area chosen to fish. The angler's name and address must be plainly marked on each device. On the business end, you must have a sinker or weight one ounce or heavier (if using 1 oz. sinker, must be lead-free), and not more than six inches above the single, baited hook. Each angler is allowed six of these cusk devices and the specificied angler must check them by visually inspecting the bait end of the line, at least once every 24-hour period. Sound confusing? It isn't really, considering this method is a "throwback" to earlier times when limits and methods for angling did not exist. Furthermore, the angler is prohibited from "jigging" or "bobbing" this cusk line in order to attract fish. Only cusk may be taken with these lines. All other species must be released by cutting the line, near the mouth, while the fish remains in the water."
