Ok we fished turtle today from 5:30 till 11. Far as the fish we did ok on what we targeted. Bass and panfish were where we expected them to be.
Turtle Lake, Walworth County
MOON PHASE (31%)
71° - 75° F
Fished Saturday and Sunday. Tried all times of day; morning, afternoon, and a little night fishing. Not much to show besides a few LM bass, perch, and decent size panfish. Fish caught all in weedbeds on south/southeast shoreline. Saw plenty of bass but not much biting. Nice calm lake to fish, and was a beautiful weekend.
Hey Jeff I just saw this now but if your talking the main launch in the channel you should be just fine tie it off to the dock facing east and stay in the channel headed out that way and you'll be fine as long as you can run in as little as 2ft of water! Otherwise you might consider stopping in at the bar on the eastern shore that launch is plenty deep to get on at and the people at the bar just ask that you be respectful and eat some food and have some drinks to support them! I forgot the name but there really nice people :)
hope that helps!

Consider an inexpensive kayak. I have a cabin with my fishing boat that I keep there. I picked up a kayak to fish southern Wisconsin and I've used it on Geneva, Delavan as well as smaller lakes like Turtle. Lot of fun and safer than many people believe.
