You should be fine to fish for and catch all three of those species of fish!!!  Our summer has been a bit weird and while I was out of town for the weekend, I did manage to come back to town to a 5* water temp drop.  I did manage to find some crappies back in one of the spots that I had left them.  If water temps manage to stay similar over the two week period, I suspect little will change until the photoperiodism thing starts to move fish in to more of a fall pattern.

BTW, one of the more major bass circuits does their fall classic/state championship up here, so I suspect you'll be fine finding those...

I'm heading up here for a week vacation the last week of August.  Staying at a cabin a few miles from here, but this chain of lakes interests me for fishing.  I mainly would like to catch perch, northern, and bass.  Anything happening this time of year?  Don't need any secret spots, but just a general depth of water and what type of structure the fish might be hanging out in.  You can message me if you'd like.  Thanks in advance!

For what it's worth last year panfishing for perch and crappie I don't remember catching any small walleye . This year fishing for perch and crappie we caught about a dozen walleye from 5" to 18".   None kept of course but was good to see that when ur not targeting them. They should put a low daily limit one. I think even having a slot rule like the eagle chain will hurt the population quickly.

They'll probably get to that 6 fish/acre relatively soon however just closing the Fishery does nothing to fix the lack of recruitment problem. The dnr has been stocking the crap out of it, something like 20 large fingerlings per acre. Once they open it back up it will be a blood bath and we'll be right back to where we were five years ago.

How late into Oct. is "mid-Oct."???  With water temps where they are currently, if we do not get a fast cooldown, we may not be into turnover yet at that time.  That would be good for musky fishing IMHO. As for the panfishing, I've never fished them preturnover...  Bass fishing could be another good alternative...

Your best bet will be either musky or panfish as walleye is not open at this time.  More on that later...

There have been some fish showing up for the smb anglers on Tomahawk.  Haven't been hearing as much from the Minocqua/Kawaga side...  My biggest fear will be when reopened.  Kentuck went through this some years ago and got to as high as 6 fish/acre.  It however was assaulted when reopened during the ice season and didn't last long.  It will be interesting to see how they implement bag limits when that time comes...

I know I've seen some discussion regarding the walleye comeback but just wondering in general, is anybody starting to catch a decent amount of these undersize walleyes that have been stocked the last few years in the chain? Would be great to see a nice success story come out of this all. Thanks

I've heard anywhere from 3 inches to 8 on stacks bay. Does anyone have the ice depth for stacks? Thanks so much
