    Here's an idea for the next event. It would be community oriented. Pick a waterway and announce that it has been overtaken by an invasive species. Stock it with 10,000 or whatever number of said fish. The community has to clear the waterway of the invasive species in X amount of days. Everyone who catches one gets some small reward and the person with the most gets something x-series.

    With regard to our community’s multiple requests for more information about the coming update, this time we’ll be telling you about the new Missions system that we’ve been working on for months straight! Underwater items are actually a part of this functionality that already saw the light of day in the previous update. But now we’re actively finalizing this full feature’s first iteration. One thing’s for sure - whatever your game level, you guys will love this update!;) So if you happen to catch an old boot - don’t get disappointed too quickly - it just might be the mission key to finding a real treasure! When you first started playing Fishing Planet, the one thing you had to go through was the game tutorial. But learning new stuff and improving existing skills is something one should be doing all the time, right? And that’s exactly why we’re introducing Missions - to make sure you’re always up to speed when it comes to the game’s newest features and secrets! Worry not, angler! We haven’t forsaken the FP’s expansion, and the core part of our team is diligently creating new waterways and introducing more fish species! But in the meantime - why not test your skills by completing our fun new Missions? So what are Missions? Well, basically Missions are a system of objectives to help the player master new mechanics by introducing him to game content through engagement in various activities. This is a rather complex feature, and therefore we divided it into a number of iterations. Missions of the first iteration are tutorial in nature, based entirely upon the learning process to help the less experienced players get a better understanding of the game, like how to choose the best tackle and baits. But at the same time, there’s quite a lot to be gained here even by the more experienced anglers. Missions are available to all players. Perhaps there’s a certain feature you overlooked or great fishing spots you were missing all along - you might be surprised by the cool thing you can discover while completing Missions! All Missions include a number of tasks for the player to complete and will be available all throughout the game, depending on your progress, waterway, fish and object you catch. In short, it’s a great way to go over some stuff you might have missed!;) We should also point out, that Missions are not mandatory - meaning, you can decide for yourself whether you want to participate or not. But we do hope that you’ll see more incentive in getting various rewards, that will depend on the Mission’s difficulty level. And of course, Missions are a great way to explore the beautiful nature surrounding the waterways, when you want to take a break from fishing. These first tutorial Missions will feature hints to help understand what’s required of the player to complete them. Now, the second iteration of Missions will focus on engaging the most experienced players of higher levels. These Missions are designed for pro-anglers and those who never take the easy way out!;) The implied tasks will require a lot of effort and skill on your part, but with great rewards to match the sweat and tears you put in! These Missions will be introduced a bit later - because there’ll be hundreds of them! And we wish to present you with a finished, high quality output, which in turn requires much time for development and testing. Once the Missions are released, you can test yourself and find out just how well you know the game, as well as learn some cool things! So brace yourself for new adventures!;) Speaking of Missions, maybe you have some interesting thoughts and ideas on the tasks you'd find interesting and would like to see in the game? We will show you more screenshots next week

    An updated list of the fishing techniques required to catch (almost*) every unique in the game, including 2018 video of them being caught. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XV6SgJuwCYGDHWFzouapEyfnlFDcMdLXTr1DhKIBdrc/edit?usp=sharing Includes major trophies and common fish too. *Except half the uniques in Quanchkin Lake because I hate and loathe the place and I'm not going back. This is a copy of a post made in the Steam discussion forums. I didn't want to assume people read both forums.

    Adding junk to catch and collect which doesn’t stack and takes up storage space was a poor attempt to get people to spend more money. If you guys would just listen to your customers and fix the simple things we’ve been asking you to fix you would see that you would retain a lot more players. And guess what? They would then in turn spend a lot more money!

    No, took me 3 in-game days. It’s 24 real life hours that resets at 12am EST. Pretty funny that support doesn’t even have the correct answers..... 👍

    I see you've already figured it out, but I'll tell you how I and several people I know did it. Using a 4/0 X-Series hook, shiners, and 15in leader at the infinity tunnels in Florida fishing for Peacocks. Cast to about 80ft near the grass on the left hand side of the middle channel. Peacocks almost never nibble a shiner without biting. It was pretty easy this way after much frustration trying other methods.

    That is a cool idea you are suggesting here and it would not surprise me if something similar eventually came out of this whole "trash" feature. Great idea!

    We will be hosting another Community Event for the Fishing Planet Community (PC Only). The event will start Friday, June 8th, 12:01 pm EDT and end on Friday, June 15th at 11:59 am EDT. We will be fishing in Colorado (Rocky Lake) for Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat Trout, and White Sucker. The biggest fish of each species caught during the event time may be entered. Take a screen shot of your fish in your hand with the full UI. At the start of the event we will post a code to be typed in the chat window when you take your screen shot. You can use any tackle. X-Series equipment or lures are NOT allowed. The fish weight (must be in pounds, so use you must use the Imperial setting in-game) also, the weight and screen shots of each of your fish need to be put on the Entry Form withing an hour of the fish being caught. Please keep in mind that the Entry Form will be closed immediately at the end of the event. A link to the Entry Form and Standings Page will be posted at the start of the Event. As you catch bigger fish you can edit your entry on the entry form. Scoring will be done by average, the total weight of your fish divided by 3 will be your score. Fish caught during official in-game competitions will not count. (NOTE: You must be registered on the forums and also have a Google Account to be able to utilize the Entry Form) Prizes: Kayak DLC, Salmon Pack DLC, Catfish Combat DLC, and Topwater&Night Fishing DLC. 1st place gets first choice, 2nd place gets second choice, 3rd place gets third choice and the remaining DLC will be given by random draw from 4th place to 25th place (must have one fish of each species entered to qualify). SCREENSHOT CODE: cutbow Entry Form: Standings Page: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ubSYY3sB0CHIOQJpvioxYzGtm0HcOaMAp2l0gKR1qFQ (The screen shot code will also be on this page at the start of the Event) This is an example of taking a screen shot for the Events:

    At some point, your going to be able to take hornwart, sawgrass, shells & eye of crawfish and craft a potion to enchant your rod enabling you unlimited casting distance,(and stamina lol). Or maybe take a shoe or boot along with a lilly and craft a potion that will allow you to walk on water. Or maybe take a turtle, some bark, a stick and a bag, and craft a potion, that when taken during a competition, will not let your opponents sprint, and they will only be able to retrieve a lure on speed one for 15 minutes.

    As you progress, you'll love it even more. I have no qualms in stating that it's the most enjoyable fishing game I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Sure, it has issues. And sure, you'll either see or have seen myself and other people who have been playing for ages have a good old moan and make some snidey comments and suchlike. When the devs make a wrong move, we let them know. However, when they make a right move, our enthusiastic praise knows no bounds. The Christmas event was one such move. That was met with unilateral praise because it brought players together to co-operate to achieve goals...and cost me a bloody fortune even after I'd achieved said goals. But laugh? My God, my best time ever on a mic with some top notch dudes. I believe several of them are actually getting together for real soon for a fish in and some sweaty man wrestling ( I may have made up the second bit ). And it's only the fact I'm in the UK precludes me from joining said get together. And it's this game that brought that about. If someone comes on this forum and rips into the devs and the game when they're level 5, watch us defend the game and the devs. We provide ( or try to provide ) constructive critiscism, and even when we really have the hump no comments get censored or threads deleted. FP allow us to express our views as strongly as we wish. I've spent...I don't know ( if the FP team want to disclose exactly what I've spent on the game here I have no problem with it ). I've spent a hell of a lot, and I don't regret it at all, they are welcome to it. They've listened to us on so many issues, they've gone their own way on other things, but the fact that I'm still playing and willing to defend the devs against any randoms who appear says a lot. So why do I and others complain in some posts you may be thinking? Because we've been playing since the start. We've stuck with them and we have earned the right to complain, unlike randoms who appear out of the ether as soon as they discover something they dislike, give them a slating and never play the game again. I will always defend the game and devs against such people, and I know more than a few users here who would do the same. Because the difference is, we provide feedback, and praise when it's warranted. Hmm, only had 8 hours sleep, worked 36 night shift hours and pedalled 84 miles since Friday. Lost my train of thought now sorry, need to end on a good note.. After 10 months of playing, I've yet to come across any animosity between people in different countries with the associated language barriers. Now seeing as that's a daily thing on CoD, that says a lot. FP people bond. All other game communities are just pure toxic in comparison. And despite being Welsh, I have not been subject to a single sheep joke!

    I was hovering over a keep net just to read out the details to a bud that was on the lake and accidentally pressed the X button and bought it, it was around 37000 but already had the XXL, so I sold it and got about 7000 back, what a waste, the game needs a confirmation prompt before you actually commit to buy anything.

    Well I'm not one to bitch and fuss alot, but the competition blue screen error is killing me. Not to long ago, maybe last week, while fishing the Salmon Galore Competition, I was in first place with a 12 point lead and 10 minutes left. After bagging a Uni sockeye...blue screen error. Reloaded game, spawned back in, and had fell to 10th place. Could not catch a fish for the next 7 minutes. With 3 minutes left, I managed a trophy chum and sockeye, which put me back in 1st in my room. I inevitably finished the competition in 12th. This past weekend, fishing the same competition, with 5 minutes left, I was once again in 1st place with a commanding 18 point lead. After catching a trophy Chum...you guessed it, blue screen error. Reloaded game, spawned back in, had fell to 3rd place. The damn game was so glitchy, and the screen was flickering so bad, that I could hardly cast, let alone present a desirable retireve, and didn't catch another fish. Finished 3rd in my room, and inevitably finished the competition in 15th. I whole wholeheartedly believe that these blue screen errors and glitchy game play after reloading, could have cost me a possible win, or at the least a top 3 finish in both competitions. That's my rant for now. I will continue to play and take my lumps as they come, but something needs to be done.

    Just finished the 300 challenge and it took a total of around 5 hours. I was at Texas using blood worms, #10 hook, and 20 inch depth. Casted next to lily pads during all peak times and averaged around 60 fish an hour. Glad that’s over!

    I'm not sure if I've got it on my list either lol. I'll have to check. I'm still after that stupid elusive uni whitefish.

    Just got the underwater objects update on Steam. Caught 2 Lily pads and 1 seagrass so far. They have their own folder but I won't know if they take up inventory slots until I have completed the 30 day trip.

    Well, we wondered at the time why they'd included the limit to home storage ( and purchasable extra storage ) when nobody had mentioned or asked for it. It seemed a strange addition at the time, but now maybe the thought process behind such a move has become somewhat clearer. I'll refrain from judgement until it becomes apparent what they mean about the trash being part of a future mission system. I've still yet to catch any trash btw. Fish? Plenty. Trash? Zip. If only it was the same IRL 😉

    Hey guys, so i´ve been playing this game for the last month or so. wondering if there is an official list of all competitions and how they rotate, weekly, 2-weeks or monthly. Also i would like to know if there is away of playing all competitions ones you are high ranked. For example SCHOOL BASS is always max lvl 13, so i cant access it any more since i`m low 30's atm Thanks

    Lots of fishing time coming up Jim, I've taken redundancy and gonna live off the money for a few months. Which means I get to play on weekends when hopefully you're allowed to stay up later than 6pm 😉 As well as talking trash we get to catch it also. I hope it gives a good fight..

    Biggest Mistake: Fiddle Fartin' around with a new reel a few months back, and loosing two x-series #4/0 jig heads due to "breaking the line" will attempting to adjust drag settings...Back to Texas it was for me lol. Don't ask me why I had x-series gear equipped while experimenting...maybe it was the Vodka lol. Biggest Failure: I don't know if I've failed at anything related to Fishing Planet. Unless I could refer to a couple of competitions I could very well have won it hadn't been for blue screen errors...yippie ke yay dev's.
