Default Satellite Image of Lake Erie

A quick question for the big lake fisherman. How do you determine water color/clarity before going fishing? I'm mostly concerned with finding clear enough water close to shore. It seems like I have good results fishing moderately clear water, but sometimes I show up to fish and it'll be the brown frown (coffee stain).

I've read in posts that people are able to see a real-time satellite image of Lake Erie. It seems some people determine water color/clarity from it. Could someone direct me to this site. It would be a useful tool to have in the arsenal.

Thanks for the help

Link is not working right now, but when they get it up and running, this is what you want.

(edit)
Working now (noon on Friday). You can even see some lake now that the clouds have finally broken a bit!

Click under the Lake Erie links above the threads, Lake Erie Wave Forecasts and Temps, then click on CW Satellite Images. It's not 'real time', but they update it every couple of hours.

We have our annual trip to the big water in two weeks and starting to worry about the water clarity, can it clean up in two weeks or push the trip back. The two boys and my dad are driving me crazy, need Help!!!

It could clean up in that time period without a doubt. We just need it to stop blowing, and raining so much! I have not looked at the wind forecast but they are calling for some sort of chance for rain and storms all this week, which will not help the situation!

I'm not an Erie expert, but I'd say four to five days of stable weather and things should be good.

There's a ton of clean water out there now, especially towards the Canadian line and East of the Islands. Changing plans because of water clarity two weeks in advance would be no different than playing the lotto. The further we get into spring, the less turbulent the weather should be and the further East, into generally cleaner water conditions the fish should move and stay. Fishing is already very good for some as evidenced by yesterday's MWC results. Some teams handled more fish with four rods than some charters have recently handled running 16 rods so it's improving fast in my opinion.
