Excuse the ignorance guys (never ice fished before) but what do apples do for you? What do you use them for when you ice fish?
Don't let that stinking bass get away!!!!!

That is what I thought as well.... but the whole ice fishing convo kind of threw me off.... I am having one of those brain strain days so I am likely missing something here..... ::)

it would be accept that i want the apples so my parents can feed them and watch them.also i don't believe that lakes are drawn down to aid in ice fishing but do have an issue with the number of wet lines allowed.i believe you can have five when ice fishing but only two when fishing soft water.seems wrong to me.

CT allows 6 lines, RI 5 lines.

The only problem i see with ice fishermen is they tend to keep everything!  I ice fish but i release everything except for maybe a few perch or crappies....

I never understood the mentality of so many of the ice fishermen. Why do so many of them keep everything they catch?

Is this largely a different group of anglers than those that fish soft water?? Just curious.

i icefish and have for years, i don't keep any fish, even the pic's get let go. don't think it matters hard or soft water.   over the summer at beach pond saw a guy dragging a 3 lb smallie around on a stringer, says he was going to eat it....oh well

on another note, up in Maine over the summer and old timer cooked me a LMB dinner, i hate to say it, it was pretty tasty.  i still wont keep fish, but at that time it was his water, his house, his rules

Nothing wrong with eating a bass every now and then!

But i was talking to one guy coming off the ice at Watchaug a few winters ago and he had a dead 5lb bass in a bucket. He was taking it to Hope Valley Bait & Tackle to take a picture of it. Then tells his buddy we should have kept the other two big ones and took pictures of all of them together ???

Some people just don't get it!

Ya... I don't have a problem with someone keeping a couple of 12-14 inch bass to eat now and then, but like Joe said, some people surely don't get it. What's the matter with taking pics right there at the lake and letting them go?

As I said before, many ice fishermen seem to be a different breed of anglers with a different mentality.
