The Brainerd Lakes Area fall fishing has been on fire. We are catching tons of walleyes, northern pike, and bass.

Vertically jigging or pitching a Lindy jig (1/4 oz) in Blue/Glo, chartreuse, or in gold metallic with a fathead minnow has been the ticket for walleyes. A good tactic for those tougher bites is to pound the bottom and then slowly raise your jig up.

If the jigging bite starts to slow down, you can also catch a bunch of fish Lindy rigging a redtail or creek chub.

During the day focus in depths between eighteen and thirty feet of water. During low light periods, target depths between twelve and twenty feet of water along weed edges.

I have also been finding some bigger fish suspended around steep deep water breaks.

You can catch northern pike and largemouth bass in ten to eighteen feet of water in and around green weeds.

Jerkbaits, crankbaits, jigs, and soft plastics will work well.

The panfish have moved out towards those deep water basins around twenty to twenty-five feet of water. You can catch good numbers of crappies on small jigs and plastics, or on crappie minnows. Utilize your electronics to locate the schools of fish and then work to stay on top of them.

If you guys are looking to get out fishing in the Brainerd Lakes Area you can book a trip through my website or you can give me a call. Good luck out there on the water and enjoy the great fishing going on right now in the Brainerd Lakes Area!
