We are under a Severe Winter Storm Warning due to the snow.  Writing this report at 4:30 am and along the north shore we have about four inches so far and we are expecting at least as much before this has passed.  A high of 28F with east winds shifting to northwest at 10-20 mph, but on my walk this morning there were gusts easily past that and visibility is very low.  30.25 on the barometer and falling, those winds will be with us most of the day but may let up for a bit around lunchtime before they pick back up again.

We have some danger reports in that coupled with the snow make things pretty hairy in some spots.  There is a pressure crack near the island off the south shore boat launch that is reported as large enough to take a machine.  Shore ice off Williams was reported as breaking up and we saw a bit of erosion off some spots along the north shore.  We did not get any reports of issues yesterday getting out from the Jewel access point, Godfrey Point (avoid making an initial turn to the east before you get out a bit due to some runoff, and the pressure crack on the way out is frozen over we are told–that was 3-5 feet before so continue using caution–A NEW REPORT INDICATES YOU WILL NEED BOARDS TO GET ON THE ICE AT GODFREY POINT). Reports cite access from Cleveland and Taft as good.  There is a report of a crack of Mill in Constantia and we have a series of cracks reported on the eastern portion of the lake as you work your way out.  Most folks off Sylvan Beach yesterday stayed in a bit closer and were tightly packed in one area just to the southwest of the beach.

Spoons (2-3″), jigging raps (3/5/7), and glow jigs (green and green/yellow) are all producing fish.  Colors include black/gold, black/silver, clown, green, and perch colors (fire tiger).  We got a few specific reports of walleyes hitting Caty jigs with a minnow.  Walleye are in structure 24-30 FOW with nice perch a bit deeper 28-35 FOW.

If you are heading out there today, please be cautious.  We have a combination of cracks, snow cover, and poor visibility that warrant extra caution.  We expect most folks will stay on the sidelines today with the weather as things look much better for the weekend.
