Punched several holes in Geneva Bay this aft. I fished 2-4:30pm. The ice at the downtown launch is getting very crusty and breaking up a little bit. Atv’s are still able to use it. Ice still fairly thick there but I have my doubts after tomorrow. I caught 5 small gills. The ice several yards out is still 13 plus inches thick. GLTA.

Went out on the bay in Geneva at 830 fishing was pretty slow 1 decent perch and some small gills left at 1230 and the shoreline had about an inch of water and the ice was very soft got my feet wet at the edge there's no way around it unless you wanna climb the snowbank
Yesterday the shoreline ice at Trinkie's was very very bad. In the evening you could not get off the ice without doing some difficult wading. Many thanks to the two gentlemen who stayed around and helped me get off the ice, even wading across the water and soft sunken ice to find the best spot to cross. Great to find people still willing to help others! As I drove by Geneva Bay at about 5:30 there were still quite a few fishermen out, but cant say what the shoreline conditions are there. Stay safe, dont take chances!
