Just wondering if anyone on here has shelled out the bucks for this set of cd's and manuals purporting to be the end all to catching crappie. I'm not naive enough to believe everything I read, but his ad is pretty convincing. Any input or opinions? Thanks in advance. Longtime lurker, new poster. really enjoy this site and all I have learned from it in a short time.

It sure would be cool to sift through all that information, but I'm not sure its worth 200 bucks??????

I'm interested to see a couple people come on here and tell how good it is.

One of my biggest questions is......how many minutes of information do I get for that much money? It would have to be a TON!

I fish more for fun than anything else and I will not even read all that crud nor will I listen to his talk. I don't need it to catch more than I can eat anyway. I am still trying to get through giving away my crappie from 2007. It was not but a couple months ago I gave away what I had from 2006 and still I am not to where my next package would be 2008.

Why on earth would I want a $200 anything with secrets about crappie fishing? I don't care enough to even look. I don't care if I go fishing and every once in a while I don't catch any, but most of the time I catch all I need and when they go in the freezer there is already too much in there.

just my 2 cents,

Skip

There you have it, from men who probably know what they are talking about. Some on this forum can more than likely give him some Old School crappie secrets.

I am sad to say I bought it. If you knew nothing maybe it is worth it. It is all about people telling their expierence on the lake. Lot of stuff did not pertend to my lake. A couple of interseting tips and that is all I got from it. One was use a thick rope for your anchor. Crappie will hide behind the rope all they need is an eyeball covered and they are happy. Have not tried that one.

I wish I had saved my money and put it towards a humminbird si.

I'm not trying to judge, but I don't understand. If you have so many fish in the freezer, why not just C & R until you use what you have? Once my supply is up, I quit keeping for awhile.

I agree, with so many experienced crappie fishermen on this site...there are years and years of experience here. The internet is such a blessing, bonding us all with something we all love. I have been researching info on this site for about three years now and finally joined back in early summer. I didn't feel that I knew enough to contribute, just learn. I am in my mid 30's and have been fishing since before I could walk and I still don't think I have enough experience but I keep an open mind and good attitude and continue to learn from everyone else's experiences...both mistakes and successes. Something I have learned from this site is don't make things too complex and enjoy every trip. I believe that with the commercialization of our era we feel we have to have a ton of JUNK to be successful whether it is at fishing, hunting, work, family, etc. If we simplify we will enjoy much more. I apologize for my rambling...just my $ .02.

Here's you an old school trick My dad often used a old nylon stocking of my Mom's filled with 1 can of cream style corn and cotton seed meal he'd drift this along the bottom normally after the winter goin into the spawn he'd hange it right over the side of the boat then he'd cast a slip-bobber rig about 30 feet out from the boat and fish it 4 foot off bottom the crappie's will come in and pick off the traling baitfish chasing the food partical's that are floating up that's why he fished his minnow's up 4 foot.

Welcome from Alabama. I am sure that everyone on this site is willing to help you catch a few more crappie. On many setups both artificial and live baits are on the same crappie rigs. This is the best of both techniques.

http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd100/shipahoy41/CRAPPIEDOTCOM/Mikesdropperloopjigrig.jpg

Use 1 &#189;” length or smaller minnows. Crappies are easily attracted to changes in light patterns so some type of jig with a blade is also very effective.

One of the most disgusting but most effective live baits for crappie is the “maggot.” Place them in a container with some white cornmeal. Fish the maggots using a #4 gold hook or tip a hair jig with them for added scent attraction.

I would have to agree with everyone on here, this is all the information you will ever need new or old.... I just e-mailed the guy about the 1947 secerts, just a simple e-mail, I can't get rid of the guy and his crap is old school stuff and a lot about night fishing. I worked nights and don't want to fish nights also, to many bugs.......... my 2 cents.......

I have read the books, watched a few videos and spent hours on here....still cant catch crappie!:confused: Maybe I'm a slow learner?:) If I hang out here a couple more years and make a few crappie camps maybe I can get my degree. Keep up the good work guys.

You can only learn so much from books, videos and the internet. There's no substitute for spending time on the water with a crappie veteran.

Why don't you hook up with another crappie.com member who lives near you? Or hire a guide for a day or two. I think at least one of the guides who posts here is in Arkansas.

I made the mistake of getting on his E-Mail list & he was sending me leaders to a new secret every 2 or 3 days, but his ultimate goal was to get you to buy his "Secret weapon" which comes for a short time with a case & the crappie catching course. I ask several times about the so called secret weapon but got no responce. The secret weapon is just a 4' green light & I believe he gets $200.00 for it. I have 2' green lights from Academy for under $30.00

Too many people have gimmics to try to milk bucks out of others. I believe some are worse than the old aluminum siding salesmen from years ago.

All,

Thanks for all the comments. It's pretty much what I thought most would have to say. Just wanted to know I wasn't missing out on some 'gotta have' info. I have already learned much on here from just surfing. I'm sure I will be asking questions in the future that are concerned with actually catching fish. Can't wait to learn more. Thanks again, guys.

The best "gotta have" info I ever learned about crappie is...what is the crappie's favorite place to be at what water temp?
