With the two fatal Lake Winnipesaukee incidents and the weather reaching 60 degrees, New Hampshire Fish and Game are reminding people going out onto the ice to "be more cautious now than ever."

Before stepping onto the ice, cut a hole and make sure the ice is at least 6-inches deep, Col. Kevin Jordan said. Ice needs to be 10-inches deep for motorized vehicles.

Fish and Game never recommends going out on the ice with a vehicle because the conditions of the ice can change rapidly.

People should not assume the lake is frozen, even if it was the week before, Jordan said. Safe ice conditions reduce as the weather gets warmer.
