I don't ice fish, but when I do fish on the bank, I try to be polite. What I do, is go to the spot I want, and ask anybody nearby (50-100 feet) "Mind if I fish here?". I've never had anybody say 'no' so far, but if they did... I'd just go find another spot I like.
Mostly the reason I ask, is so lines don't get tangled, because that's a huge pain to hassle with.
I may be crazy, but it's kept me from goin' insane...
