Fish and Game: Skimming across water illegal, and bad idea
“We’ve had to pull bodies out of the water of people who thought they were just having some fun,” said Sgt. Brad Morse, a Fish and Game conservation officer.
“We get a few every weekend,” he said. “We had a bunch out at Governor’s Island during the fishing derby (last month), and we even had a few last weekend at the Mosquito Bridge (in Belmont).”
On Sunday, Laconia fire officials say an all-terrain vehicle rider tried to skim in about eight feet of water off Weirs Beach but sank. The operator reportedly hitched a ride away from the scene on another ATV.
“It happens all winter, it just seems to happen more in these months,” Morse said.
