wouldn't be too worried about the snow. with the wind the way it was....should have blown most of it off...grassy point "should" be alright by this weekend...but would shy away from the north launch untill you see someone else out there.

You would think,but compound 4 ft of snow and all you get is slush ice like we have in Chautauqua lake!

If the snow permits looks like the bay will have some fishermen on it this weekend...Just a reminder folks.. SPUD..SPUD...SPUD! and STAY AWAY FROM THE DOCKS DUE TO THE BLUBBERS. Will probably be joining Friday hope to get out on Third creek if ice and snow permit. Would be nice to hear a snow report hoping it blows off as fast as it snows. Stay Safe and use your head.

 Yo John,

 Glad you have already locked into the hot bite area bud. I will come over to help you cull them perch out and only leave the small ones for the rest of the guys eh?  Check your PM bud.
