Sonny-S Boat Line did not begin seasonal operations this year due to vessel condition issues.  As indicated on the Sonny-S Ferry Web page, the boat is undergoing extensive repairs and a hull refit.  It is unclear when regular service between Middle Bass Island and Put-in-Bay will resume, but business owners hope to start before Independence Day.
