N.H. Fish And Game: Remove Bobhouses By April 1
It may still be cold out, but the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is reminding people that all bobhouses must be removed from the ice by the end of the day on April 1, according to state law.
Lt. Heidi Murphy of the department's law enforcement division says the law is designed to ensure that bobhouses and their contents do not fall through the ice and become a hazard to boaters, or get left behind on shore.
Failure to remove a bobhouse from public waters, public property or private property by the deadline can result in a fine and a one-year loss of the owner's fishing license.
