New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department is urging Granite Staters to be cautious on or around ice this early in the season, saying it may not be as thick as it appears — even during a cold snap.
“What we say is no ice is completely safe. It’s all different. It’s not uniform and you’ll have to test it wherever you go,” Fish and Game Capt. Dave Walsh said Monday. “It’s unusual to have a November like we had and it’s unusual to have people ice fishing statewide in December.”
While small lakes and ponds in northern areas are ahead in the big chill, southern areas and larger bodies of water may not yet have thick enough ice to support much weight, he said.
