Any suggestions for walleye on this lake? Not looking for exact spots. Any info on depths/launches and bays would be appreciated.

Has anyone been fishing off Trinkies for panfish? I'm guessing there is plenty of ice for walkout out and probably enough for an ATV (or there will be by this weekend)

This is an email that I received today from the DNR in regards to a vehicle going through the ice. I live in Lake Geneva and saw the cars go in the lake yesterday afternoon. I was not aware of all of this, so I thought I'd share it with you. Tight lines guys and gals! Ryan- There were 15 vehicles that went through the ice yesterday. No one was issued any citations. The law allows for a vehicle to be submerged for up to 30 days. After the 30th day they could be fined daily for not removing the vehicle. Cars do not pose much of an environmental impact. Fuel tanks and motors are sealed pretty good and do not discharge a whole lot when under water. The owners of the vehicles are responsible for their own tow expense. The cost of the tow and the potential loss of vehicle is expensive enough. Most insurance companies do not cover vehicles that go through the ice. The applicable law is s. 287.81 (2)(c), Wis. Stats, on Littering. 2) Except s provided in sub. (3), a person who does any of the following may be required to forfeit not more than $500: c) Fails to remove within 30 days or otherwise abandons any automobile, boat or other vehicle in the waters of the state.

To the comment about insurance....the answer is it depends. Some insurance will cover it and some won't. I am very careful where I drive when ice is concerned but I also do my due diligence first.

Prior to driving on the ice every year I contact my insurance company via email and get a confirmation on ice coverage. I hope to never need my insurance but I want to know I am covered should I need it

Ice Depth: 4" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 36° - 40° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Please people be very aware of ice depths,this has been a very mild winter and the ice has actually lost some thickness. "It appears many vehicles are drowning in the Lake due to thin ice.I couldn't believe it but it happened. Can we get a Helicopter,preferably a Chinook to quickly fix this unless too late or handled in a timely manner. I am no longer near the Lake. Please observe warning signs or cut a hole and take your own measurements. I have kicked a hole in the ice 2-5-2016. I drilled 1 hole,very quickly by hand,just over 4" where I was." I don't like walking in 3",the ice color matters too,blue or choppy ice can be weak. Fishing was not bad.

No one was directing people to park on the ice. This is not a fair or event where it is in an enclosed area or open field. It is in the city of Lake Geneva. The lake is clearly posted "WARNING drive on ice at your own risk) prior to driving on the lake. We have not had the weather to support driving on Lake Geneva as it froze over about 2 weeks ago, with mild temperatures and one day of rain this week. The city is not at fault in any way shape or form. When you drive on a lake, any lake you know you have a chance of the ice breaking and you going through. The conversation should be, why didn't these people ask around before parking on the lake to find out current ice conditions. My best guess would be 6" as I have not been out here yet this year.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think insurance covers anything once a vechicle goes onto the ice...where the people directed to park there?

Have not been to lake geneva this year but in years past ,I have seen people park on the lake side by side like it was a parking lot,have even stopped by the cop shop and advised they post 10 to 15 foot between cars and trucks ,was pretty much told it was covered by your own risk thing ,so how much did the town save rather than poping for a sign at the launch, now the lake will be closed to cars likely as not,

I seen where several vehicles have busted through the ice parked out there for the ice sculpting deal. Not very smart

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 8" Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 36° - 40° F
Fished Friday in the afternoon and today in the morning for panfish in Geneva Bay. Moved across the Bay from one side to the other in depths from ft. to 45ft. Used ice jigs and plastic, Swedish pimples and jigging Rapalas, all with and without spikes and waxies. Fished parallel to shore and straight out from shore. I caught so many 3-4in. perch that when I got a 6 incher I really thought I had something. Is anyone doing any better? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
