Revealed: Nature’s Little-Known “Scientific Secret” Small Groups Of Elite Fishermen Around The World Use To Easily Bring In At Least 10 Times More Catfish (And Other Game Fish) Than Anybody Else...

Special Fishing Report Sponsored By: The Catfish Fishing Secret Weapon There is a little-known secret to finding swarms of hungry Catfish – 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.This amazing secret is based on an organism that holds so much “power”, if it didn’t exist there wouldn’t be a single fish on the planet – and hundreds of thousands of humans would have died from starvation.It has nothing to do with “chumming” or any other method like this. In fact, you don’t have to “do” anything to fire up your Catfish catches to unbelievable levels. Nature takes care of it for you – if you let her. It’s something that 99% of fishermen don’t even realize exists, yet it’s right under their noses every single time they go out fishing… and if you are one of the lucky ones to discover it, you’ll be sitting on your boat (or on shore) with a grin from ear to ear after having caught more Catfish (or whatever other game fish you go for) than ever before – faster than you ever thought possible. “So What The Heck Are You Talking About, What’s The Big Secret?”

Ok, I’ll save you from any more hype, and I’ll get to the point. The “scientific 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 Catfish 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 wouldn't 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 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 Catfish 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 Catfish 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 Catfish, 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 Catfish. You can probably guess what happens next…The Catfish “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. When it gets to this point, you are in for the fishing experience of your life – I don’t care how long you’ve been fishing. Catfish feed from underneath, so what you’ll do is bait up and drop your line in off the perimeter of the feeding, or right underneath. You want your bait to be a little separate from the swarms of bait fish. You do this right, and you’ll have the biggest string of Catfish in your entire life – faster than you’ve ever caught ‘em before. To help you see the big picture – here is mother nature’s sacred food chain:

Obviously, the “key” to all of this is knowing how to find the first levels of the food chain. The “Phyto” and the “Zooplankton”. “Ok, This Is All Great, But How The Heck Do I Find These Zooplankton Rich Fishing Hot Spots?”

…and that, my friend, is the question that – when answered – will plunge you into a new world of fishing success that will blow your fishing buddies away. (And I wouldn’t recommend sharing this with everyone… only your closest friends – after all, it’s fun to keep your fishing success a “mystery” to the other guys…) Ok, so how to we find all this Plankton and hit it big in the fishing hot zones? Biologists who study life in the water use advanced equipment to locate patches of Zooplankton, including a special type of sonar… but since most fishermen don’t have this state-of-the-art equipment, you’ll be using some other special techniques to find these massive patches of Plankton (and the swarms of fish that will be feeding on them). There are basically 2 things you’ll be looking for. The first thing is called “Chlorophyll” which is the base that indicates large patches of “Phyto” and Zooplankton. Chlorophyll and “Phytoplankton” go hand-in-hand – you’ll never find one without the other. Don’t let the “scientific” word fool you… “Chlorophyll” can be easy to find when you know where to look. Chlorophyll is attracted to sunlight and will gather in huge patches near the surface – usually in places with direct sunlight. When you find one of these patches, you’ll know. The Chlorophyll is a dark green color – and when you have enough Chlorophyll in one area the water will appear dark green or even black. We’ll call this “stained” water from now on.So, be on the lookout for “stained” water during the daylight fishing hours. “Fishing by the stain” is so incredible that if you are in a body of water where you can find these stains easily – it doesn’t make sense to ever fish in a spot where the isn’t a stain. The “Landmark” Of Amazing Fishing Hotspots Here is another way to find the Chlorophyll, Phyto, and Zooplankton… The “landmark” I am talking about is green algae – and anytime you find some, grab your rod and get ready for a wild ride! Even if you don’t see a water stain on the surface around the green algae, you can be sure there is a large cluster of Phytoplankton, Zooplankton, bait fish, and Catfish right in that spot. Hunt for algae close to the shore or any other underwater structure, and don’t hesitate to hit the fish hard without hesitation when you find it… Another clue that there is a large bloom of Zooplankton under the surface is if you see lush vegetation on the shore where there is some water run off. The water going into your body of water will bring Plankton into the water with it (from the vegetation) and create a large patch of Plankton – sometimes much larger than normal. These are primeareas for catching a huge amount of Catfish fast. The Second Thing To Look Out For, “Dancing Snowflakes” I know many fishermen who use underwater cameras to locate Zooplankton – but you can also see this happening from the surface. This powerful fishing phenomenon onlyoccurs in severe hotspots – and it’s much more rare than finding the stained water I talkedabout earlier. Using an underwater camera (or looking in from the top of the water in well lightedconditions) you will see millions of Zooplankton which looking like “dancingsnowflakes”. They are clearish-white in appearance – and when they are there, you can’tmiss them. When you find them, be surprised if there aren’t already hundreds of minnows and otherbait fish sucking them up like they are going out of style… if there isn’t yet a swarm offeeding fish, there soon will be. Bait up and get that line in the water, because they’ll bethere fast.Finding the “Dancing Snowflake” phenomenon is much more unpredictable than findingthe “stained” water. It can occur in open water (which is why Catfish sometimes prefer theopen waters), and it can also occur near structure. It’s hard to go out hunting for it,because it can happen anywhere. Always be on the lookout for it though as you searchfor the stained water. Now, Imagine If There Was A Way To “Create” Patches Of Zooplankton Nearly 10Times The Size You’d Find Naturally – In Almost ANY Fishing Spot? You have enough information about Zooplankton to go out and find it for yourself, and pull up more Catfish than ever before. However, recently it was brought to my attentionthat there exists a way for any fisherman to “create” massive patches of Zooplankton (andby doing so, swarms of Minnows and Catfish) at any time, and in almost any spot. Almost nobody knows about it (you can imagine why – fishermen “in the know” rarelylet their best secrets out), and I have to admit I got pretty darn lucky when I found out about it. I actually saw it working with my own two eyes… and of course, I’ve been using it ever since. In fact, I wouldn’t dare go fishing without it. It’s just too powerful. At first, I didn’t tell my buddies about it – and they were all dumbfounded when I’d comeback from a fishing trip maxed to the limit. (and what they didn’t know was I wouldcatch my limit within 30 minutes almost every time… and catch and release at least 3 times that amount afterwards…) Finally, under pressure, I cracked and told them about the amazing device that almost instantly creates swarms of fish – taking the “science” behind nature’s food chain to another level. Now, my friends are all using it too – along with some of the bestfishermen in the country. If you are interested in reading more about the amazing device that put me ahead of all ofmy fisherman friends, you can read an article about it here……and it’s jam packed with revolutionary fishing information that will shock you. It won’t be up on the website forever, so if you liked what you read, get over there right away. What You Learned About Mother Nature’s “Scientific” Fishing Secret I am going to summarize the 4 key points you absolutely must know after reading this article, to make sure you got everything… 1. Nature’s food chain basically consists of 5 things: Phytoplankton, Zooplankton,Bait Fish (like Minnows), and Game Fish (like Catfish). The secret of finding“fishing hot spots” containing a ravenous feeding frenzy of bait and game is to locate the bottom 2 links on this food chain. The “Phytoplankton and“Zooplankton”. You’ll do this by locating the huge “patches” of plankton. 2. The first way to find it is to search the waters for “stains”. Remember,“Chlorophyll” are the dark green organisms that go hand in hand with the Phytoplankton. When there is enough Chlorophyll to create a fishing hot spot, the water will be a dark green, or even black. Search areas of direct sunlight close to the shore or underwater structure – especially around green algae. If you find green algae you can be sure you’ve just stumbled on a hot bed of minnow, Catfish,and other game fish. Also, remember to look for lush vegetation on the shore with some water runoff… this will create a very large bloom of Plankton – far beyond the normal patches you’ll find. These are excellent places to find fishing hot spots… 3. The second way to find these fishing hot spots is to keep an eye out for millions of “Dancing Snowflakes” in the water. These are enormous floating masses of Zooplankton. A lot of fishermen use underwater cameras to find them, but you can also see them from above the water if the lighting conditions are right. Theydrift through the waters almost at random – and can show up anywhere! This makes it hard to actively seek them out, but as you are searching for stained water, keep an eye out for these “Dancing Snowflakes” – the results of fishing these amazing spots will be some of the best fishing of your life guaranteed. 4. Finally, there is an amazing device that can quickly “create” patches of Zooplankton that are nearly 10 times the size you’ll find naturally… until now,only the best fishermen in the country have been using it, so the available information on it won’t be available forever. If you want to read more about this revolutionary technique, read the special article here: In conclusion, if you actively practice the techniques for locating patches of Phytoplankton and Zooplankton which will attract swarms of Minnows, Catfish, and whatever else lives close to your fishing spot – I can guarantee your fishing will be onanother level completely. Nature has her secrets, and when you are able to find a way to use what she’s telling us to find the fish – you’ll be amazed at the number of fish you pull up, almost at will…Remember to check out the details about a little-known secret “weapon” some lucky Catfish fishermen are using to double their catches of Catfish.

Catfishing In The California Delta

I never understood the appeal of fishing. My father would rise before the roosters, pack his gear and go out to sit idly on a rock, drink beer and coffee, trade stories with my Uncle Roosevelt and if he were lucky—come home with enough to feed the family. There were eleven of us and most times, he did just that.

My father had been an avid fisherman all of his life, so it came as no surprise when my siblings took up this activity. Still, I did not understand the joy of this hobby. But then a funny thing happened. While on vacation and going through a divorce, I was looking for a new hobby to occupy my time. I decided on fishing and I wouldn’t have to seek out a teacher because my brothers lived a few doors down from me.

That was 14 years ago and now I have become a more than capable angler. My favorite fishing spot is the California Delta, which offers a plethora of hard fighting whiskerfish. This 1100-mile region is a conjunction of three rivers—The Sacramento, San Joaquin and Mokelumne and numerous sloughs and lakes. There are a number of piers, levees, islands and crags that one can bank fish from and plenty of area for boat fishing. I know this area extensively and offer these five tips for bank fishing.

Old School Catfish Fishing

1. Get up early—preferably around three a.m. giving yourself room for last minute hold-ups—usually that sleepy headed buddy who isn’t ready when you arrive. The catfish bite is usually strongest around dawn and dusk. I also like night fishing.

2. Prepare your bait the night before, particularly stinkbait mixtures. Catfish rely on smell so if you fish with shrimp or grubs you might be wise to let it sit in the sun for several hours, then placing the bait in a jar for safekeeping. You can also soak shrimp in vanilla. But even if you buy pre-packaged bait, it is best to do so in advance. My choices of bait are clams, chicken liver, mackerel, nightcrawlers, blood worms and sometimes meal worms dipped in vanilla. (I’ll use the latter when I know that there are crappie and perch in the vicinity as well). Other fishermen suggest using whole kernel corn. Let it sit in the sun for a day or two, then add black pepper.

3. If you miss a catfish bite, be patient. These creatures are greedy. Theyw ill strike again, usually within seconds after the initial bite. They are also known to “hook themselves”. Once you snag one, be prepared for a tough and fun fight. Even the smaller ones are tenacious!

4. I tend to cast into the middle of the water, but when the bite slows, try fishing along shaded areas and amongst the tulles. Fish among the pilings and other debris if possible. In either case, be wary of getting hung up.

5. My five favorite sites: Hogback Slough (near Isleton), Frank's Tract, Lindsey Slough (near Rio Vista), Eight mile slough (near Stockton) and Jersey Island.

Now all you have to do is prepare, be on the bank before the sun rises, cast out and relax.
