The Evening Secret For Catching Fish In A Barrel

Jul 22, 2008
There is a little-known "evening secret" to finding swarms of hungry Crappie - and catching them at will. It is one of the most powerful fishing discoveries I have ever witnessed, and it works time and time again with a consistency unmatched by any method I have ever tried. The best part is that you don't need to buy a damn thing. All you need is your eyes (and sometimes your ears) to exploit it for all it's worth.

The "scientific evening secret" nature is hiding from fishermen has two parts to it. They are called "phytoplankton" and "zooplankton". Now, don't let the fancy names scare you - it will all make perfect sense in a second - I promise. Let me start off by telling you exactly what "phytoplankton" and "zooplankton" are, and then I'll tell you how you can "use" them to pull up massive amounts of fish faster than you can image. Put it this way, the only thing better would be to have the Crappie jump right in the boat!

What Is phytoplankton - And Why It Is Crucial To Finding Fishing "Super Spots"?

Phytoplankton is at the absolute bottom of the food chain. Basically they are the "plant form" of plankton. phytoplankton is made up of "diatoms", golden algae, green algae, and "cyanobacteria". But none of those scientific words mean anything to you - all you need to know is - without phytoplankton, there would be a fish on the planet - anywhere.

The "Zooplankton Animal" - What It Is, What It Does, And Why It's A Fisherman's Best Friend

Zooplankton is the "animal form" of plankton. They feed on the "phytoplankton" and basically follow it around everywhere. They are found at various depths in every body of water. (lakes, ponds, oceans, rivers, you name it) They are like "candy" to bait fish like minnows, shad, smelt, and any other small fish in your area. In fact, they are the main source of food for these smaller fish. There are a bunch more "scientific names" that make up zooplankton, but I won't bore you with those details here. The bottom line is, where there is a lot of zooplankton, there are a lot of fish - swarms of fish! You'll see why and how in a second...

How These Base "Blocks" Of Nature's Food Chain Can Easily Put You In The Best Position To Catch Loads Of Crappie Anytime You Want To

The first 2 "links" in the food chain are the phytoplankton and the zooplankton!

As I mentioned, it all starts with the phytoplankton at the very bottom of the food chain (the little microscopic green algae, and other stuff). They are the only source of food for zooplankton, which feed on them constantly. In fact, wherever the phytoplankton go, the zooplankton follow. (and the "Phytos" are absolutely everywhere!)

It gets really good for any fisherman when you find a massive "plankton cloud" (also known as a "patch") filled with millions upon millions of these tasty organisms.

Next, bring on the bait fish! (like minnows, shad, and anything else in your area) The 3rd step in our food chain are the small fish which happen to be the main source of food for Crappie and other game fish! I'm talking about minnows, shad, smelt, and any other smaller fish in your area.

These little guys don't just casually cruise into one of these huge plankton clouds...they attack relentlessly in a swarm - a literal feeding frenzy! Imagine you and about a dozen of your buddies in a room with $100 bills falling from the ceiling... well, that's exactly what the zooplankton are to these fish - and the small fish go absolutely crazy!

Now, if this food chain were to stop at this stage, you'd probably still be pretty happy. You see, when you know how to find these massive clouds of plankton, the surface of the water will be thick with swarms of bait fish - and you can dip in your bait net to get as many as you want for FREE.

But this all gets much better for you, because there are actually two more levels to this food chain of feeding. They are the Crappies, and YOU!

You can imagine the sound generated by the massive amounts of feeding activity...

It almost sounds like a bunch of kids splashing in the water - and it generates strong vibrations throughout the spot. And these vibrations scream out "dinner time!" to the Crappie. You can probably guess what happens next...

The Crappie "hone in" on these vibrations because they know that there is a helluva lot of food going nuts, all in one spot. They move in and hang out on the outskirts of all of this activity, feeding on the small bait fish one by one...

...and that's where you come in as the fifth and final link in nature's food chain. (of course I encourage you to practice good "catch and release", especially for any trophy fish you catch) But if you were to keep and eat the fish you catch, that would make you the fifth link on the food chain.
