Old School Crappie Fisherman #1: Carlton Byrum

Ever fish in a spot they say is “fished out”? It’s possible the crappies are gone, but highly unlikely. If they were in the spot before, there is a strong chance their offspring are there now. You just have to try different tactics because conditions (and new generations of crappie) change over time…

Carlton will show you the exact techniques he uses to catch crappie in the most difficult locations. If there are any crappies in the water at all, you’ll be getting all the action you can handle.

Carlton knows exactly what he’s talking about. He’s been fisherman of the year in Ft. Lauderdale Florida 2 times in a row, and now he’s going to reveal all his secrets to you.

It wasn’t easy to get him to talk about his best stuff…but once I got him talking, boy did he spill his guts! You’ll discover:

  • An amazing jig, combined with a special “flip, swing, pop” technique, that suckers the biggest crappie to bite almost instantly. (Especially around lily pads.) (This secret works so well Carlton BEGGED his best friend to tell him by calling repeatedly at 1am!)
  • A sneaky trick that forces thousands of bugs into the water, attracting hundreds of minnows (and crappie) to your spot.
  • How to use your BOBBER to create the perfect “noise” that attracts crappie like wild! (This powerful technique works best if you aren’t getting any bites – for almost immediate strikes!)
  • How to create your own private crappie fishing hotspot only YOU know the location of! (It lasts for weeks, in any body of water.)
  • How to “divert” crappie to your bait, and away from everyone else’s. (Hint: it has to do with your distance from the shore, and is so simple you can master it in minutes!)
  • How to catch “easy crappie” around bottom structure by using heavy line and an old school white jig.
  • How to jig chicken feathers one inch ABOVE THE WATER for “arm-breaking” flying crappie attacks! (Wait ‘till your buddies see this…)
  • How to identify land mass that points to where “reserve” crappie are hiding – when all else fails! (Keep this secret from your buddies, and only take advantage of this when you are alone!)
  • A genius method of using an ANCHOR ROPE to put crappie in ambush mode… and how to “serve” your bait to them on a silver platter for instant attack strikes! (Carlton was laughed at when he told another group about this… but 2 hours later they had caught only 10 crappie…and Carlton had 47!)
  • The secret “rapid fire” technique that can catch dozens of fanning crappie in under 45 minutes. (This one exploits a crappies’ defense mechanism.)

    (Click the play button to hear part of it - 44 seconds)

  • How to catch a hundred crappie in a single day by creating “super maggots”! (Carlton found out about this amazing secret from a wandering stranger at a gas station…)

    (Cick the play button to hear part of it - 1 minute 11 seconds)
  • How to catch up to 20 bass on the way back to the dock after a day of crappie fishing! (This works best if you are in a boat, close to the bank.)
  • How to catch crappie at night using an “invisible” (and FREE) rod and reel! (Carlton pissed off some pro’s with this by out-catching them 100 to 16… and they were using the most expensive crappie rigs money can buy!)

  • And a lot more!

Old School Crappie Fisherman #2: Bill “Pee Wee” Reese

This old guy has been fishing since age 4 (he’s 69 now). He’s fished all over the world, from the Mississippi River to Japan and back again.

In fact, he was a commercial fisherman on the Mississippi River before graduating high school… And when he was 64, he blazed through western North America catching everything that moves. (over 2500 miles of fishing action!)

FACT: “Pee Wee” catches an average of 3 crappie every 10 minutes he’s fishing!

(Click the play button to hear him talk about the "90-10" rule - 36 seconds)

...and you'll see how he does it with tricks up his sleeve, like:

  • How to “steer” your minnow into the mouths of hungry crappie by using 6 different methods of hooking a minnow… (and you’ll find out exactly when to use each one!)
  • How to guarantee you hook crappie in the upper or lower jaw, and NEVER in the paper thin part of the mouth (most casual crappie fishermen get this wrong and lose a lot of crappie. Once you apply this 2 second fix, you’ll lose a lot less…)
  • How “Pee Wee” embarrassed 3 professional crappie guides after they challenged him to a fishing contest! (After 2 hours on Roosevelt lake, Pee Wee had 35 Crappie... the closest pro had just 7. He’ll tell you step-by-step how he did it – and how you can too.)

    (Click the play button to hear him talk about it - 1 minute 8 seconds)
  • A big “sign” mother nature puts right in front of your nose, showing you EXACTLY where the biggest swarms of crappie are waiting to feed! (Very few fishermen ever notice this dead giveaway)

  • How to avoid the spawn fishing mistake most guys make that causes 50% of bites to be missed (Hint: a lightweight item found in every home will allow you to detect crappie upstrikes most people miss!)
  • The “tight snap” hook setting secret that makes it virtually impossible for crappie to spit your bait out (Once they bite, they’ll be hooked until you bring them in!)
  • The big night crappie fishing myth! (It works for catching bass, but never crappie. If you are using this technique for crappie fishing, you've been lied to like everyone else)
  • How to find the “secret spawn” that will double your catches of crappie in a single year! (It takes place during two weeks every year, and almost nobody knows. Now, you can pull up loads of crappie during this time while everyone else is at home mowing the lawn!)
  • How to find an enormous school of crappie by identifying the “inverted Christmas tree” under any body of water (You’ll also find out how to milk it for tons of catches until it disappears in just a few minutes!)

  • A simple rod movement that will provoke a school of crappie to SLAM your bait! (This secret takes advantage of a pre-programmed instinct in every crappies brain)
  • A little-known crappie jig to use in water you’ve never fished before. (You’ll catch fish all day long, and everyone will think you’ve been fishing there your entire life!)

    (Click the play button to hear him talk about it - 37 seconds)
  • What to do when you see a MOUNTAIN LION 20 feet away from you! (It happened to “Pee Wee” when he was fishing from shore… you’ll hear the whole story.)

  • And much, much more!

  • How to re-bait and get your line back in the water quicker than anyone with a simple technique called “machine gun casting”! (Obviously, the more your bait is in the water, the more crappie you’ll catch.)
  • A special way of rigging a minnow so it attracts crappie like flies on fresh cow dung. (It makes your minnow look more vulnerable so crappie will IGNORE almost everyone else’s!)

  • How to stop breaking your line – even in the worst snag situations you can imagine. (Why lose gear, and waste money, when you can easily rig your tackle to pull through anything?)
  • How to increase the precision and length of your casts. (It’s called a “float setup”, and you’ll be slinging deadly accurate casts without messing up your rigging!)
  • The tru-turn hook secret that makes ANY bait more attractive to crappie. (You’ll notice an immediate difference in the number and size of crappie you catch!)

  • The secret “bank lure” bass can’t resist. (It will work in any water where bass live, and also catches crappie if you use a smaller version.)

  • And more!

Old School Crappie Fisherman #4:

Then he uses a brilliant method to track the school… and catch all them!

He’ll show you all his “crappie espionage” methods so you stay right on top of the crappie, coax them to your bait, and get them to attackeven when fishing a spot for the first time!

Old School Crappie Fisherman #6: Steve "Gar Bait" Farmer

Years ago, Steve overheard 2 fishermen talking about unique tactics for using “scent” to drive crappie crazy. When he tried their techniques to exploit a crappie's sense of smell, he was amazed by how many he caught.

So he began experimenting with different scents. And he took it to a whole new level when he discovered his secret “crappie catnip”… and it drives them absolutely wild!

The first time he used it he: caught his limit, hauled in his biggest crappie ever, and had an enormous gar jump into his boat! (it was going after the crappie catnip too, and almost bit off his kneecap!) The amazing part: this all happened within 20 minutes, before his buddies even got to the lake!

(Click the play button to hear Steve talk about the crazy Gar - 50 seconds)

  • A secret for “freezing” your bait when it enters the exact depth crappie are suspended in! (This works best if you use a longer rod.)

  • A special herb to tip your hook with that surrounds minnows with an irresistible smell, attracting hundreds of crappie! (I’ve actually seen crappie ignore regular minnows, to attack a minnow with the “smell”.)
  • How to avoid an amateur mistake that instantly reveals your best crappie hotspots. (There’s nothing worse than finding a gold mine, only to have everyone move in and catch YOUR fish!)
  • …and more!

Old School Crappie Fisherman #7: Dale Mitchell

45 years ago, Dale was out bass fishing when an old fisherman called “Catfish Charlie” turned him on to crappie fishing… for good. Charlie convinced Dale to fish along the weed beds with a specially made jig. He showed Dale exactly how to move the jig, and… WHAM! Dale caught his first crappie almost instantly.

Then he caught another... and another… and another…

Dale has tested Charlie’s technique in almost every major crappie state in the country. And it catches crappie like crazy… in all of them! (Texas, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Illinois, Alabama, California, and a few others.)

  • A fishing hook to avoid if you “catch and release”. (You’ll discover the perfect crappie hook that not only keeps them alive, but increases your odds of bringing them in.)

Greg White: Crappie Fishing “Great Equalizers”

Most guys aren’t aware of the subtle tricks the best crappie fishermen use.

But, Greg is going to show you the little things that make all the difference… so you can gain multiple advantages over most crappie fishermen.

They won’t have a clue how you’re pulling in more crappie than they are… and it’ll be up to you whether you tell them or not!

You’ll find out:

  • An almost “guaranteed” way to get quick crappie strikes in murky water (…and bright colors are only half of it!)
  • The live bait species that stimulates constant curiosity bites, in most bodies of water (Greg has proven these can beat minnows… HINT: You can find them anywhere – and most people use them to catch catfish!)
  • How to “pie cast” on slow days so you never get shut out… even if everyone else goes home without a single bite.
  • How to find out when a crappies’ “dinner bell” rings so you only fish when they destroy your bait! (Every body of water is different… but by following this simple rule - you’ll never waste your time fishing during crappie down time.)
  • How your overall crappie fishing strategy should change in the summer for maximum results.
  • The weather condition that consistently produces more crappie strikes than any other…and it is NOT after a rain!
  • How to hold your rod for an instant increase in the crappie you’ll catch per outing. (It’s a very subtle change… but this alone will make you a better fisherman.)
  • How to gain the advantage over boat fishermen if you are fishing from the shore. (BEWARE: This one might piss them off!)
  • And more “great equalizers”...

FREE BONUS GIFT #3: "Do You Make These Common Crappie Fishing Mistakes?" ($29 Value)

Has this ever happened to you?

You’ve spent hours preparing your tackle box and equipment... you’ve spent money on bait (and gas) to go fishing… you feel the anticipation of the fight with a monster crappie…

You drop your line in, and nothing. You go to the next spot… nothing.

You become frustrated and disappointed. The goal is to catch fish, not sit there waiting to get a bite – for hours! So you finally give up and go home - dejected.

The truth is, you probably made key mistakes most casual crappie fishermen make every day. These common blunders prevent crappie from biting –- without you knowing why.

In this special “easy reading” report, the old timers reveal these major crappie fishing mistakes – and tell you exactly how to avoid them. So, instead of boredom and frustration – you’ll feel the thrill that comes with constant crappie fightin’ action!

Just some of what you’ll discover:

  • A common fishing "belief" that is true for every type of fishing… except crappie fishing. (Beginners are continually given this bad advice which leads to boredom, frustration, and not a single bite...)
  • 5 simple hook preparation steps that eliminate most crappie escapes. (95% of anglers let crappie "off the hook" by not doing this before casting out.)
  • An easy way to reveal hidden crappie hotspots in less than 5 minutes! (This one will pay off every time you fish your body of water… for the rest of your life.)
  • A huge trolling blunder that actually repels crappie from your lures. (Avoid this mistake to enjoy an immediate increase in multiple crappie hookups almost every time you drift over a hotspot!)
  • Why crossing the invisible "10 foot barrier" will ruin a crappie feeding frenzy. (Most boat fishermen violate this "golden rule" and scare off ravenous crappie!)
  • Common fishing equipment misconceptions that may prevent you from catching the big ones... and how to fine tune your tackle so it's more enticing to crappie.
  • How to instantly multiply the effectiveness of any successful crappie fishing technique. (If you’ve found something that works… adding this little gem to your rig can blow your catches through the roof!)
  • Why misusing a basic feature of modern fishing reels can send you home empty handed! (If you've ever come home with few catches, this is probably a big reason why...)
  • The simple "SDC" formula beginners must know before they'll get consistent bites with jigs. (Use this and your jigs will tap into a crappies feeding instinct -- instigating more bites.)
  • And much, much more!

If you’ve ever been overwhelmed with the amount of fishing equipment available, get ready to “cut through the crap”! This special report lists only the proven equipment you need to catch crappie… and nothing more.

"Sounds great Dan, how much will all this cost me today?"

This project took on a life of it’s own after I talked to the first old school fisherman. The secrets these guys revealed are far beyond anything I expected. This course is jam packed with unique old school crappie fishing secrets very few guys have ever seen.

There isn’t anything like it. My big problem is: how the heck do I put a price tag on something so unique?

Here’s what I decided to do.

I found 5 instructional bass fishing manuals. (I couldn’t find much on crappie fishing.) Their average cost is $38. (…and they don’t even come with a CD, just a single illustrated manual.)

Well, my Old School Crappie Fishing Course contains 8 manuals and 8 CD’s. If you multiply $38 (the average price of the bass fishing manuals) by 8, you get a price of around $300… I made it $297.

So that’s how I came up with the $297 price.

…and I’m knocking $100 off because it just felt like the right thing to do.

When you grab your package today, you get everything (including the bonus gifts) for only $197.

Listen: the average crappie fisherman goes fishing about 10 times per year. If you hired a crappie fishing guide each time, it would run you between $200 and $300 per day. That works out to $2000 -$3000 per year in guide fees. (Which is why you probably don't pay for a guide every time!)

But you'll be investing only $197 total for your Old School Crappie Fishing Secrets package. (This works out to just $19.70 on each of your next 10 fishing trips!) And you'll have the knowledge to catch crappie at will for the rest of your life...

In fact, you could be catching more crappie than the guides when you put these amazing secrets to work.

Plus, you can easily save much more than $197 on useless equipment and bait over the next year by following the advice in the course. And just imagine how much you’ll save over the rest of your life…

And to make sure you feel totally safe, I’m backing up this investment with an…

Yes, you read this correctly. A 100% 1-Year Money Back Guarantee is almost unheard of these days, especially on the Internet. But the bottom line for me is: most fishermen are straight shooters. And I'm happy to give fishermen (like you) a full year to try it out.

Here are the details:

From the day the package arrives at your doorstep: you’ll have 365 days to use every old school secret in the course to unleash hell on the largest crappies in your fishing spot.

If you decide you don’t want to keep the course (you don’t even have to give me a reason), just send it back within the 365 days for a full and immediate refund.

I don’t care if the CD’s are scratched, or the manuals are bent… all you have to do is send it back to our receiving address at:

Old School Fishing Secrets
4610 Prime Parkway
McHenry, Illinois 60050

…and I’ll issue you a refund on the spot (including your shipping costs). I can credit your credit card, send you a money order, or whatever method you prefer.

I won’t ask any questions, and there’ll be no hoops to jump through. Just an immediate refund of every penny you paid. No B.S.

Look, a few people may take advantage of my generous guarantee. But I’m willing to take that risk so you feel comfortable trying out these old school secrets today. I just want you to know there’s an easy way to get your money back if you’re not satisfied.

"...I Used Two Of The "Crappie Attraction" Methods...
I Pulled In 462 Crappie In 7 1/2 Hours Of Fishing!

(Click "play" to listen to Satch's experience with
these secrets - 1 minute 16 seconds)

Hello Dan!

First, I've got to congratulate you in putting together this ingenius material. I never realized there were so many unique ways of catching crappie around the U.S. - and I've been fishing over 50 years.

Using a few techniques, I've caught 75-100 crappie between daylight and 8:30am, but when I used two of the "crappie attraction" methods I pulled in 462 crappie in 7 1/2 hours of fishing, with my old buddy Whit!

I know it sounds unbelievable, but I'd swear on my mothers grave it's true.

There's still a lot more for me to try out because the information comes from 12 different guys... not just 1.

Thanks Dan!

I'm having huge success catching crappie with the methods in your package.

I know these guys are giving up their best secrets because I've really increased my catch since I started using them.

In fact, with the Dale Mitchell and Randy Musgrove manuals, a buddy and I caught 5 limits of crappie in just 2 evenings.

Then, when I was fishing alone, I caught a 3 1/2 pound crappie (my personal best) by using one of the methods in the manuals for targeting the bigger crappie in a spot. When I hooked him, I thought it was a catfish at first, until I felt that familiar "crappie pull". I brought him to the boat and used a net. I couldn't wait to get home so I could start bragging!

Not only are their methods unique and effective, but the entire course is first class all the way - including the packaging. I'm very impressed.

"...I Caught Double My Limit Of Crappie!"

(Click play" to hear her phone message - 58 seconds)


I'm just a beginner, but your course is taking me to another level, and it's saving me time because I don't have to experiment with things that don't work.

These fishermen are so experienced, and they've come up with hundreds of great methods - and they've shown me how to perfect them.

It's been hard for me to catch anything this fall, until I got your information. I used one of James Ketchum's jigging techniques (and I corrected a big mistake I was making that Doug Dials talks about)... and I caught double my limit of crappie! (The limit is 20... and I caught exactly 40, and had to throw 20 back)

I absolutely love the course, and I love listening to the guys talk through their secrets. I can almost picture the spots they fish, and all of their techniques
are so easy to do when I follow the manuals.

Thank you again!

Hey Dan!

I am so impressed with the "superstar" lineup of crappie fishermen you've put together!

Using a combination of their methods detailed in the course, I was able to catch a 4 POUND CRAPPIE!

I've only been crappie fishing a short time, and I consider myself a rookie. If I can catch a crappie of this size with the information, I'm convinced almost anyone can.

Thanks for putting together such an impressive collection.

Hey Dan,

The things I've seen in the course so far, are so good, I won't tell a soul other than my best buddy.

I've only had it for a few days, so I've only had a chance to use Carlton's jigging techniques... but it's changed everything.

It's been pretty slow, and I've had some unproductive crappie fishing trips, but as soon as I used some of Carlton's secrets, my buddy and I both caught our limits of 50 crappie (each!) in just 3 hours!

From what I've seen (and used) so far, some of these secrets are unbelievable! It's obvious they were discovered by hardcore fishermen... FOR hardcore fishermen.

I've already gotten a taste of how well this stuff works, and I can't wait to see the secrets the other 11 guys' use!

"...We'd Only Been At It For 45 Minutes
And Already Had 13!"

(Click "play" to hear Gene tell it - 1 minute 47 seconds)

Hey Dan -

I'm so glad I got your course. Here's what happened after using one of the trolling secrets:

I took the wife out for a trip, and we trolled in and out of all the other boats. We caught A LOT of fish. An old guy came up to us complaining he'd been out there for 2 hours without a single catch. My wife mentioned we'd only been at it for 45 minutes and already had 13! The guy wasn't too happy.

The largest we caught was 15 3/4 inches, but I never found out how heavy it was. It's the biggest I've ever caught.

Before I started using the strategies in the course, I'd sometimes go home empty handed after spending hours out fishing. But now I go out there with a strategy. And I can quickly get a mess of crappie almost every time.

I would have gladly paid full day guide fees to each of these guys. But with your course, I don't have to - it's all there.

This is a great collection of old time crappie fishing information, and it's all very user friendly and easy to follow. Thanks Dan.

"That's 120 Crappie Per Night, Not Counting The Ones We Threw Back!"

(Click play to hear what Clint has to say about it - 1 minute 9 seconds)

Hello Dan,

Me and the boys took off to Lake Martin armed with the crappie fishing secrets in your package. Every single one of us caught our limit every single night! There were 4 of us, and the limit in Alabama is 30 a person. That's 120 crappie per night, not counting the ones we threw back!

We focused on the depth finding techniques and a few of the crappie attraction tips. We really wore 'em out!

Next time, I'm going to test Carlton's anchor rope technique. I can't wait.

Dan, nothing is more frustrating than gearing up for a good fishing day, and 6 hours later you come in with nothing but a sun tan. There are so many techniques in the course, from so many old fishermen, I can't ever imagine feeling that frustration again.

I'm also going to save at least $20 on every trip because I've started to catch my own live minnows with the bait catching information. And the crappie definately prefer the natural live bait!

You seem like a good old country boy too, Dan. And your course is amazing.

After speaking with you on the phone, and exchanging emails with you, I wanted to tell you how impressed I am with you. I can tell you really care about your customers. You seem honest, trustworthy, and you tell it like it is - no bull. It's an honor doing business with you.

And I'm glad I did, because your course is very VERY good.

These fishermen talk about every aspect of catching crappie. Hook sizes, line weight, sinkers, bait, techniques, jigs, how to use jigs, and more. All of the bases are covered with their unique methods, and I've already caught my limit of crappie a few times since receiving the course.

Good job!

(Click "play" to hear Rick's story - 1 minute 25 seconds)

Hi Dan,

Your course is a gold mine of techniques from some of the finest crappie fishermen in this great country of ours.

This course is the "cream of the crop" compared to any other fishing information I've seen, and my wife and I have been crappie fishing for almost 20 years now. Once we got the course, we realized how much we didn't know!

Using the techniques we caught 56 crappie in an evening (the most ever!) And we also caught a 4-pounder (our personal best) using a unique bait we found out about from Dale Mitchell in the manual #7!

But Steve Farmer has to be my favorite. Using his scent secrets we're able to catch over 50 crappie almost any time we want to. In fact, we used his scenting techniques to catch all of the crappie for our fish fry.

Everything is spelled out so clearly as to what gear is best, what baits are most effective, how to find the hotspots, how to coax crappie into a spot, and how to entice them to bite.

It's one thing to see the information laid out in the manuals, but the ultimate reward was listening to the guys on the CD's. They all have great personalities, and I almost feel like I know them.

Thanks for putting together such a great package Dan, I can't wait to go fishing again!

"It Was One Of The Most Productive Hours
Of Crappie Fishing In My Life."

(Click "play" to hear Red tell it - 1 minute 15 seconds)

Hi Daniel,

The course is great, and the techniques these guys teach are tried and true, handed down over the years from one generation to another. And they really work.

I tested some of the dock fishing tips and caught 11 crappie, all about 2 pounds... and I caught them all in less than 1 hour! It was one of the most productive hours of crappie fishing in my life.

The best stuff, for me, is the actual step-by-step techniques laid out in the manuals. Especially the ones that talk about using specific presentations during different times of the year.

I can identify with all of these fishermen, due to the fact that I'm an old country boy - and my family and friends all have a similar way of thinking.

I love the course, Dan, and with so many old secrets in my hands, I know I won't fail to fill a stringer even when fishing new water.

Anyone who's serious about catching a ton of crappie should be serious about trying these secrets. I've never seen some of this stuff before, but the stuff I've tried actually works!

Thanks Daniel!
