This weekly fishing report features multiple lakes in the Brainerd Lakes Area located in central Minnesota. It’s provided by Nate Berg Fishing Guides.

The bite slowed a little bit with the first major cold front in quite a while but picked up quickly after. Fish of all species are still active in the weeds but we are starting to see a few walleyes move deeper than the 10-20 feet they have been all summer.

Big bluegills are really turning it on and schooling up nicely. Big pike are starting to move shallower and can be caught casting or trolling big wood. Crappies are starting to bite throughout the day. Bass are very active and can be found in several depths ranges.
