Ice is melting; move those bobhouses

CONCORD — Attention ice anglers: All bobhouses, also known as ice shanties, must be removed from the ice no later than the end of the day on April 1, according to state law.

Once it’s off the ice, do not leave a bobhouse on public or private property without permission – that’s also a violation of state law – so if you’ve moved your bobhouse to the shoreline, take care to move the structure to your own property.

The law is designed to ensure that bobhouses and their contents don’t fall through the ice and become a hazard to boaters or get left behind on shore, said Sgt. Dave Eskeland of the Law Enforcement Division.

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. In cases where Conservation Officers cannot identify the bobhouse owner, Fish and Game has the authority to seize any bobhouse and its contents not removed by the deadline.

For more information, contact your local Conservation Officer or Fish and Game’s Law Enforcement Division in Concord at 271-3127.
