There is a little-known “evening secret” for finding swarms of hungry game fish so you can catch them at will.
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 catches to unbelievable levels. Nature takes care of it for you – if you let her.
The “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 fish 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…
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 game fish, and YOU!
“Ok, This Is All Great, But How The Heck Do I Find These Zooplankton Rich Fishing Hot Spots?”
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.
In conclusion, if you actively practice the techniques for using this “evening secret” for locating patches of Phytoplankton and Zooplankton which will attract swarms of Minnows, game fish, and whatever else lives close to your fishing spot – I can guarantee your fishing will be on another level completely. There is also a special device called the Evening Secret Fishing Weapon that can create these hot spots in any spot you want.
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…
