New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department says all bobhouses, or ice shanties, must be removed

New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department says all bobhouses, or ice shanties, must be removed from the ice no later than the end of the day on April 1. “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,” Lt. Robert Mancini of the department’s Law Enforcement Division said in a statement. Failure to remove a bobhouse from public waters, public property or private property by the deadline, or burning a bobhouse on the ice, can result in fines and a one-year loss of the owner’s fishing license, the department said.
