I am not a big fan of ice-fishing in waters where you know that most of the fish will have to be released.

I think (no scientific evidence I know of) that the mortality rate may be higher when you drag an undersized pike up on the ice on a cold day, take a picture of it and stuff it back down the hole.

In summer time when you hook one (especially on a fly rod) you get a great fight for your money and have a better chance of a gentile release (if its not too hot out)
