Deadline for removing bobhouses in NH nears

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - Sunshine and warmer weather may help remind Granite State fishermen that all bobhouses must be removed from the ice by the end of the day on Wednesday, April 1, according to state law.

NH Fish and Game Lt. Heidi Murphy of the agency'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. The department can seize a bobhouse that hasn't been removed in cases where it can't identify the owner.
