With weather warming up, NH bobhouses to clear ice by April 1

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - It may still feel cold enough to go ice fishing, but an April 1 deadline is approaching for all bobhouses to be removed from the ice in New Hampshire.

State law requires their removal, to make sure that bobhouses and their contents do not fall through the ice and become a hazard to boaters.

The Fish and Game Department says on Sunday, a man's Jeep fell into soft ice at the end of Meredith Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee as he was trying to remove a bobhouse. The vehicle had to be towed off the lake. There were no reports of injuries.

Lt. Heidi Murphy of the department's law enforcement division said Monday she's not aware of any other bobhouse removal-related problems.
