First off let me say I am in no way associated with this program, but in the search to become a better crappie fisherman I ran across this on the internet. Just wondering if any Crappie.com folks may have bought this and what their opinions are. Without a high recommendation I would definitely not spend this much. Crappie.com is the best place I have found to learn about crappie fishing other than time on the water. Did any Crappie.com guys contribute to this? Below is a link.http://www.OldSchoolFishingSecrets.com/go/oscf/friday/list (http://www.oldschoolfishingsecrets.com/go/oscf/friday/list)



Thanks,
Flintcreek

I think I remember this coming up before. The consensus was that it was an "Old School Rip Off".

Save your money...I bought into it and promptly returned it for a refund. We had been crappie fishing for about a year when I bought it. I was desperate to gain as much knowledge as I could. Much of the information contained in the packet was info we already had figured out on our own.

Thanks guys. I am of work with my back right now and not able to get out on the water so I all I can do is lay around taking it easy and surf the net or read and study up on my Crappie fishing. I am in agreement Crappie.com is the best information I have found.

He's a "salesman" ... but, whether or not he's a "fisherman", I'm dubious. From what I can gather from his "ads", he basically takes info from various sources and just regurgitates it. His "info" is then packaged in these extensively long web promos, with all kinds of "guarantees".

He's even gone so far as to use terminology that I MADE UP ... namely "Vertical Casting" which I wrote an article on, almost 15yrs ago, & posted here. No credit given, no attempt to contact me about the article (that I'm aware of), and no mention of the fact that "he" didn't invent the term (but simply took it off the internet). Since I "invented" the term, I seriously doubt any of his "old school secrets" buddies ever uttered it.

He's also the same guy that had a "1947 secret weapon" ad .... that turned out to be a $200 underwater 12V green light :Doh: But, that wasn't the "red flag" that alerted me to the sales tactics of this guy ... it was the fact that the ad stated that you had to hurry up and order within the next few days or chance missing out on the deal. The problem (red flag) is ... it was STILL saying that same thing months later, even YEARS later. And it STILL DOES !!

Such a shame that so many make, or try to make a living off honest, trusting people.

Thank the Lord that C.Com is a teaching website. You will learn much more here and also by searching "Crappie" on You Tube than many of the books that are currently being distributed.

Makes me think of the old British saying " a fool and his money are soon parted " kind of hits home after I buy a package of banjo minnows . Also this saying is not in the Bible . :biggrin

i have had this sent to me but didn't buy as it became obvious he had no real knowledge. THIS site I have learned so much so quickly, bunch of real fisherman who know what they are doing and willing to share. THIS is the mother lode!
