  1. Welcome to noob anonymous. I do very noob things like forget my spod rods, forget my keepnet, and forget to equip a Titanium leader when handling toothy fishies. You are not alone. How many of us have lost their favorite Golem Lure to titanium amnesia? An old-timer who brings-up the mystical term RNG while also telling new players "beginner's luck," really has no clue WTF RNG is. I don't know what these guys mean by RNG. Are they tossing around a buzzword because they are a developer that understands how a random number generator was implemented into a particular fish species on this particular pond? Do they understand how attribute stacking/filtering works within a game system? Do they know if the unique/trophy place holder is regenerated when it is released? Do they know the fish school demographic for the spot they are fishing at? Do they know if sustained nibbling mechanic increases or decreases the size of a unique placeholder? A weirdo nerd like me tickles game mechanics with attribute stacking versus environmental filters (ie: peak time, temp, species behavior, light wavelength, current, bottom terrain, etc.) to convince the fishing engine that she should produce lovely oversized fish for me. If they believe in RNG mechanics, they can't believe in luck. RNG mechanics is luck based when you know absolutely nothing about what you are doing. However, the more you understand the game and the way different mechanics interact with each other, the better your skill becomes in predicting the outcome of WTF. If you can recognize WTF ASAP, you can easily recover and change the outcome of your mistake. Competitions aren't always about perfect execution. If it were, the most skilled player would slay the competition in half the time of everyone else by using keen knowledge to both narrow a RNG band and predict the next active spot. Narrowing a RNG band produces consistent oversized stuff. Often times, it's a matter of correcting mistakes in judgement, casting accuracy, and equipment failure with expediency rather than forcing a bad pattern to produce favorable results. I think too many of us veterans get stuck in forcing a bad pattern to produce favorable results, hence the "beginner's luck" tirade. Adding a titanium leader or switching to a heavier line is a quick and recoverable change. Forcing a bad pattern to produce a favorable results is what ultimately sinks many veterans. Bad habits are hard to unlearn. Therefore, enjoy your noobness and let it help you learn to change your path expediently. During competitions, close chat window and click off chat display so you are not distracted by superfluous chatter.

  2. Elitism in online gaming is nothing new. The best of us share knowledge and help others along to add longevity to a game. The lessor attempt to pad an otherwise fragile ego by some imaginary self-worth. Sometimes it's a bit called for when a newer player tries telling someone who knows better "how it really is", sometimes not. One max level person calling another max level person a noob is really kind of comical. I don't know if this thread will stick around (due to personally calling someone out). That said, I hear where you're coming from. My best advice, ignore it as much as you can. I understand sometimes that is difficult. During the earlier years of this game being a very well known player I was called about every name in the book. No matter what you do or say there will always be someone with a chip on their shoulder and a contrary opinion.

  3. Hi, Anglers! We are happy to present you with a detailed guide to all the unique fish that you can find on the Selenge River! The sharply continental climate holds the river in icy embrace for almost half a year, from November to April. Harsh winters and hot summers make early autumn an ideal time for fishing. In September, snow can already fall at night, which melts during the day. And just at this time, the Baikal omul, pyzhyan and taimen come here to spawn. You’ll have to take on such rare and feisty opponents as Humpback Whitefish, Lenok, Baikal Omul and, of course, the Khan of all salmon — Taimen! Siberian Taimen Siberian Taimen is the largest representative of the salmon family. It can reach over 60 kilograms in weight and up to 2 meters in length. It inhabits the cold rivers of Siberia and Mongolia and never goes to sea. It mainly keeps near deep holes close to the shore. This species is active day and night. In the daytime, the Taimen picks shaded areas, and at night it moves to the nearby shallows with a fast current. Preferred baits: Large Minnows, Common Minnow, Shiners. Preferred lures: Medium Spoon, Single Spoon, Bullet Spinner Crankbaits, Minnows, Mouse Lure Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Shads). Lenok Lenok is a predatory fish that inhabits fast rivers with cold water. It can reach more than 10 kilograms in weight and a meter in length. It prefers to hide among branches, stones, flooded trees, as well as keep to sections of the river with rifts and rapids. Lenok hunts at any time of the day, but most actively — in the morning and in the evening. Preferred baits: Grasshoppers, Dragonflies Bark Beetle Larva, Night Crawlers Natural Eggs, Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow, Shiners. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Single Spoon, Bullet Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows, Mouse Lure* Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Shads, Grubs, Nymphes). Arctic Grayling Arctic Grayling is a relatively small omnivorous predatory cold-loving fish. It can reach up to 4 kilograms in weight and up to 80 cm in length. It lives in rivers, streams, and lakes of the Arctic Ocean basin. The Arctic Grayling prefers rapids and areas near large boulders, where reverse currents can occur, as well as places where branches of trees and bushes hang over the water. They are most active during the day, and hunt mainly in the early morning and late evening. Preferred baits: Grasshoppers, Crickets, Dragonflies, Mayflies, Caddis Larva, Bark Beetle Larva Artificial Salmon Eggs, Natural Eggs Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Single Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows, Poppers. Baikal Omul Baikal Omul is a schooling fish of the whitefish genus of the salmon family. It can reach about 3 kilograms in weight and more than 60 centimeters in length. It prefers deep places with clear cool water. This fish feeds around the clock, and it usually goes to shallow water to feed. It feeds on crustaceans, bottom invertebrates, and juvenile fish. The Omul bites well in all layers of water, but there’s more chance of catching it near the bottom. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms, Sideswimmers, Night Crawlers, Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon, Spinners, Nano Spinner, Soft Baits (Craws). Humpback Whitefish Humpback Whitefish (Coregonus pidschian) is a schooling fish of the whitefish genus of the salmon family. It can reach more than 4 kilograms in weight and up to 70 centimeters in length. The Whitefish prefers places with a silty-sandy bottom, a weak current, and well-developed aquatic vegetation. Its activity peaks in the evening, but it is also active during daylight hours. In cloudy weather, it is active throughout the day. The Whitefish is an excellent fighter, so get ready for some impressive resistance from it. Adults feed at the river bottom on small mollusks, crustaceans, insects, their larvae, and eggs of other fish. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Sideswimmers, Night Crawlers, Natural Eggs, Spawn Sack, Boiled Red Roe Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Soft Baits (Grubs, Craws). Common Dace Common Dace is a medium-sized omnivorous schooling diurnal fish. It can weigh more than one kilogram and reach about 40 centimeters in length. It lives in small rivers with clear water and moderate flow and is sometimes found in lakes or in brackish water at estuaries. Its juveniles often hide in holes and roots in coastal vegetation, and as they mature, they move to areas with faster currents. If you’re hunting for the Dace with a spinning rod, using twitch retrieve will help you a lot. Preferred baits: Semolina Balls, Oat-flakes Grasshoppers, Crickets Dragonflies, Mayflies, Flies Bark Beetle Larva, Night Crawlers Small Minnows, Common Minnow. Preferred lures: Narrow Spoon, Nano Spoon Spinners, Nano Spinner Mini Crank, Minnows Poppers, Walkers Soft Baits (Grubs). Common Minnow Common Minnow is a small schooling diurnal fish, reaching the maximum length of 20 centimeters. It can be found in streams and rivers with cold, well-oxygenated water. It prefers to stay at a shallow depth with a sandy-stony or sandy-pebbled bottom. Preferred baits: Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Pinkies, Maggots Natural Eggs. Amur Bitterling Amur Bitterling is a diurnal cold-loving fish that lives in reservoirs with stagnant or slow-flowing water. This elusive fish tends to keep in small flocks at depths up to 2 meters, in secluded and quiet places with a sandy or rocky bottom overgrown with algae. Preferred baits: Dough Balls, Semolina Balls Pearl Barley, Oat-flakes Caddis Larva, Bloodworms, Red Worms Pinkies, Maggots. Oh and please note that the bite of some fish is affected by the direction of the wind!

  4. Hello anglers! We haven't brought you new locations for a while now. But we’ve been working hard and are ready to present a wonderful gift for you! It’s time for you to witness the results of the long work of the whole team: our new location, the Selenge River in Mongolia. The Selenge River will show you the incredible world of fishing in Asia. Have you ever dreamed of breathing in the fragrant wind that travels over the sea of steppe grasses? Have you ever wanted to observe the vast expanses of millennial steppes? Have you ever wanted to hunt for amazing, unique inhabitants of faraway rivers? If yes—then very soon we’ll give you an exceptional opportunity to visit the distant and unknown Northern Mongolia! It is here, in the hilly forest-steppe, surrounded by low mountains, that the proud and cold river Selenge is found, one of the high-water rivers that feed Lake Baikal. The Selenge flows across predominantly flat land, and in its course the narrowings alternate with hollow widenings, where the river divides into straits and forms numerous islands. The current is quite fast and the waters are muddy, with a lot of sedimentary rocks. Its depth is small (3–4 meters), although sometimes there are pits up to 7 meters. The shores are mostly clayey and sandy, although pebbles can sometimes be found. The places for fishing are surprisingly diverse, full of life and unique flair. Here, in the interfluve, you can find a fishing camp, popular with locals. A large hearth, prepared seats made of fallen trees, and fish dryers assembled from poles eloquently suggest that this is a good fishing place. On the west bank of the Selenge you can find a traditional camp of nomads with typical Mongolian yurts and nomadic flocks of sheep grazing, camels, and horses. At the foot of a low hill, you can feel the spirit of antiquity and see carved wooden serge poles and millennial deer stones, decorated with solar symbols and ritual signs. On a large pebble island overgrown with grass and bushes, there is a small boat station. Under a cliff in front of the island you can see a whirlpool, about which the locals can tell you several legends. The harsh continental climate keeps Selenge in ice for almost six months, from November to April. Short but hot summers and cold harsh winters make early autumn an ideal time for fishing. However, September nights may already see some snow. The Selenge teems with fish. In addition to the usual Pike and Burbot, its waters are home to many unique cold-loving fish, such as Arctic Grayling, Humpback Whitefish, Lenok, and Baikal Omul. However, the Selenga is also famous for having the largest fish of the salmon family! Of course, we are talking about the king of all salmon — Taimen, whose weight can exceed 60 kilograms! Of course, in order to deal with such unique underwater dwellers, you will need new lures and baits. Your collection of surface lures can be expanded with mini-cranks, ideal for catching predators who prefer to hunt in surface waters, and an artificial mouse, which will attract Taimen, as well as Lenok and Grayling. The new baits will include Curd Dough, Oat-flakes, Bark Beetle Larva, Boiled Red Roe, Eurasian Minnow, and Sideswimmers, which will drive Baikal Omul crazy. In general, Mongolia is a very colorful and unusual place where you can not only enjoy the spirit of an ancient original culture (from Buddhist stupas, deer stones, and ruins of ancient temples to nomadic camps and traditional mouth harp music), but also get unique fishing trophies!

  5. This is from National Geographic's website; Hucho taimen, also known as the Siberian or Mongolian taimen, is the largest member of the salmonid family, which includes trout and salmon. It can grow six feet long, even bigger than the North American Chinook salmon. Though it is one of five taimen species in Asia, when people talk about “taimens,” they’re usually referring to this species.

  7. The reel (max drag 19 kg) is not suited to that rod (line weight 1 - 3.25 kg), you'll need to either use a very low drag setting or get a level 8 CrucianHunter 3000 (max drag 3kg) ($3710) reel, careful with the drag setting though (don't set it too high) because the line (3.6 kg) looks like it's a little heavy to be used on that setup and you could end up breaking the rod. You really should have the level 11 or 12 braid 0.15 mm (2.7 kg) for that setup.

  8. SELENGE RIVER-Mongolia Welcome to the vast expanses of Northern Mongolia! Here, surrounded by low mountains, we can visit one of the deepest rivers that feed Baikal — the Selenge. Many rare birds live along the banks of this mighty river, herds of sheep and horses graze peacefully. You can also notice the yurts of nomads, surrounded with enclosures housing two-humped camels. The Selenge mostly flows across a flat land, first becoming narrower and then turning into hollow-like expansions, where it divides into channels and forms multiple islands. The banks, overgrown with sparse forests, are mostly clay and sandy, but pebbled areas are also often found. The river has a fairly fast current and relatively shallow depth. The extremely continental climate holds the river in an icy embrace from November to April. In September, snow sometimes falls at night and melts during the day. It is here that the largest fish of the salmon family is found — Taimen, the king of all salmon, sometimes reaching a weight of over 132 pounds. Lenok, Baikal Omul, Humpback Whitefish and Siberian Grayling can also be found here in abundance. Although the Selenge is not an easy place for fishing, it’s incredibly interesting!

  9. The new result board for competition is very much different from the previous one; it looks like the custom competition. But what i am interested in is that they did not show the personal rating in the results, please tell me how to know how much personal rating did i gain or loss in this result board.

  10. Have begun. Ubersheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wEvjycxSaVLNmVOCIZPALsPvLtxnJSz_LDcPKowAFb4/edit#gid=1806653623 With the time I have been away this will take some time. Due to level cap increase I am still locked out of many new things. I have begun with what I can so far: -Removed price paid per weight of fish caught, not something I want to track -Added all new store reels to level 40 to drag sheets (DLC reels likely missed) -Bait Pricing sheet, fully updated with all baits -Preferred Lures and Baits, added slots for new uniques in low level locations -Locations Summary, updated with species and max weights through to Colorado -Texas, Missouri, New York, Colorado sheets. Updated with new species/uniques, max weights to reflect current game info -Czech, new location sheet added From here I will likely continue updating/adding sheets up to my current level cap (40). Locations I can fish to confirm data. Once I hit a soft wall on that I will move to updating much of the new gear that has been added. The balanced combinations sheet may be a long while coming as I am level locked out of many reels (which I need to buy to confirm number of drag settings available). As always in the past. If you have info that can help increase the accuracy of the Ubersheet (especially peak times) please let me know. To maintain the integrity of the data please provide screen shots/links to confirm information. Thanks.

  13. Thanks for doing this. Having been away from the game since 2018 I have had to learn about a lot added to the game in my absence. The baiting system, as it is, is the most complex of the changes. Having recently unlocked Weeping Willows I made my first trip a few days back. Bottom rods and peas along with me, just mainly doing the exploration mission. While I got the early missions done fine the trip was nothing fantastic in terms of results. Before my second trip yesterday I had spent some time looking through this thread. My second trip was my first time spodding ever and my first time baiting via some actual research. I can report that my one day trip fishing through one peak time I landed 6 uni carp and filled up about 800 lbs of my keepnet. A very successful trip for my first time trying this.

  16. A bit off the main topic. Been reading some of your posts. In particular, on carping, baiting, etc. I tried explaining to people long before bottom fishing came around about "schooling fish", how all fish don't simply appear/disappear with each cast of the rod. How important lure size and retrieve speeds were based on fishing conditions. Most thought I was having delusions. Glad to see you've had more success in explaining the finer points of the game. I look forward to reading in more detail as I further explore the baiting aspect of the game.

  17. Hello everybody. Powell, first of all I want to make it clear that this is just my opinion. Fishing Planet is by far the best mobile fishing game, and one of the biggest if not the biggest of all platforms, having said that, it's important to say that unfortunately the fishing game community is small compared to so many others follow-ups, but something very important is that we are a faithful community. I was happy to play the game on the iPhone 8, which despite having problems due to the limitations of my device, it was a game I played for 6 hours a day, I got level 30 in 15 days. But I have to say, not having the game available on Android is nonsense, and today, almost 3 months later, we still have no possible release date and no pre-registration on the Playstore; To the developers I say, you have the best fishing game in your hands, with unprecedented reach potential in the mobile world, segregate Android so that iOS users have a wide advantage in level up and content creation for streamers It's something to say the least regrettable. I come through this to ask you, give us at least a possible release date for Android or better yet, at least a pre-registration on Playstore, and gain at least more reach than you already have in your game. Yours sincerely Silas P. Nacashigue

  18. At Ghent, I can't catch the cannibal eel. With the eel doll bait, I'll catch an occasional Zander or Eel, but not the monster. I constantly get the "your bait was pulled too far away" message, literally every few seconds when I have 3 rods in the water. Definitely a bug.

  24. I have a few questions. Please answer them in correspondence to their numbers so I can better make sense of your reply. 1. Are you guys going to add saltwater fishing so we can drive out far into the sea with boats for blue marlin, mahi-mahi, sharks, etc?! I really though this game would have a lot more saltwater fishing when I first bought this for a game called “Fishing Planet”! 2. Are you also going to make it so you can trade real money for in-game money and have an in-game store that lets you do that kind of stuff? 3. Also, you going to update your graphics? Because they need to be updated BADLY! 4. I also find it incredibly frustrating that the controller only vibrates (and not even intense enough for certain fish) when you’ve gotten a bite, but doesn’t continue to vibrate and feel like you’re still fighting the fish as you’re reeling it in like other fishing games do. I found that to be a huge blunder on your guy's part and I’m wondering if there’s any plans at this time to fix that as well? If not, I highly suggest that you create a plan because that’s very essential to any fishing game. Please answer all these questions as thoroughly and quickly as possible! Thanks,

  25. Although the sunglasses do not allow you to see further into the water as real polarized glasses would, they do cut back the glare from the sun which is handy for fishing at places like the The Salty Delta peg at the Everglades, Florida on sunny mornings. I do agree that it would be great to be able to see more underwater features or the fish you are currently trying to land in more detail with them on. BTW You're able to obtain "special" glasses from some of the special events (Halloween, Christmas and St. Patrick's day to name a few)
