The above nailed it - Depth sounder, clip to your hook and run line off the trap to get bottom. The eggs are bobber stops, we don't use them in Maine (nobody I know anyway) on the ice - but you will see small buttons or spring bobbers to mark how deep you want to be, so you can reset the trap to the same depth. I see those eggs used more from the baitcaster/bass fishing crowd to peg weights in place.

Fortunately, I have a portable depth finder I used when I was ice fishing never used the old "Mark Twain" method. The bobber stops I still use when using bait with spinning tackle makes it easier to adjust the depth of the bait. Makes casting much easier also. Probably did use them when I was ice fishing. Earlier in the fall when my club acts as lake guides for CFR participants at their annual South Jersey retreat, I made up several leaders with "strike" indicators and bobber stops. Because of back issues I wasn't able to participate and never got a chance to try them. Still have them, might give them a shot in the spring fishing nymphs for trout.

James, next time you come over, bring the devise you're taking pictures with. We'll work on your picture taking a little bit. In my opinion, you should try to do everything you do, the very best you can do it. These pictures are not the best you can do.

Agree the first one is an ice-fishing "bumper" lead so you can find the depth (pull the line and remove but then you know you're just over the bottom when you put the line back in).
Second image is an arm? Red barberry berries under a green condom? I really can't make out the image.

I'm a bit confused ... although not surprising considering you're talking about ICE fishing!
When fishing through a hole in the ice, I would think you'd want to reel the fish all the way to the rod tip if possible. With a "permanent" bobber placement, and the bobber only inches from the rod tip while fishing, you can't really reel in ANY line.
Why not use a bobber stop that allows playing the fish to the hole without losing the depth setting?
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.
