  2. The Developers Diaries: New Fish and Waterways! Filled with inspiration and driven by our passion for fishing, we’ve been working on a global update of our game for quite a long time now. Sparing no efforts, we’re dead set to give you a renewed Fishing Planet experience of the highest quality! And since our game is celebrating it’s third anniversary this August, we decided to share some developer inside scoop and give you guys an idea of the great wonders ahead: like the completely new European waterways, even more kinds of fish species, and a few other features you’re sure to love!;) So

  3. 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.

  4. One of the major gripes I see a lot of players having about Fishing Planet is how repetitive and "grindy" it can get. In the lower level lakes, you see players all trying new things and fishing different spots and enjoying the variety, but (thanks to the oppresive costs of higher level gear and travel, etc) people start to focus specifically on making money once they reach around level 25. What you see then is when you go to one of these higher level lakes, all the players are gathered around basically the same spots, fishing for the same fish, day in and day out, just to make enough money t

  6. Hey, anglers:) As you well know, Fishing Planet will soon be expanding its fishing premises onto the much awaited European regions! An so, today we’ll tell you about the Ghent–Terneuzen Canal in the Kingdom of the Netherlands - a place where you’ll be having some unforgettable fishing adventures! Also known as Zeekanaal (or simply the Sea Canal), it links Ghent in Belgium to the port of Terneuzen on the Westerschelde estuary in the Netherlands. This deep canal (about 12m / 40 ft in depth) runs 200m (660 ft) wide and 32 km (20 mi) long, while serving as a navigable passage for large vessels

  7. Competitions system rework in progress. Probably will be finished with Players created competitions release, and all american waterways will be switched to the new FIsh AI system. This will keeps cheaters off the comps. And the time will be reduced from 2 hours to 45 min, which will remove twinks.

  8. Hello, today "11/25/2018" I will be closing for an indefinite time the sending of videos about competitions. Maybe I upload videos about the new lakes and etc ... But for now nothing about competitions. I know that I helped some friends with what little I know and that I left others brave to show some secrets. I have always tried to help the FP players and not make a profit or something, so in the future I will come back with the videos. Many say that I am a competitive player, "yes I am" but I decided that starting today I will train, train and seek to learn more than I already know. I

  9. When you’re ready to upgrade equipment, it might pay to shop around while in the field. Example: Two identical items shown may be purchased for a cheaper amount “On Location” vs. “At Home.” That’s’ a $6030 savings. Obviously, travel expenses, licenses, etc. would factor in but if planned, we might be able to conserve a few bucks when money and/or bait coins are tight. Especially if members see a cheap deal “on location” regarding the higher end equipment and post it here, it might benefit the community. Some items may be included with specific DLC’s as well so it’s wise to read those desc

I figured I would share the template with everyone here. All you have to do to make the spreadsheet personal is copy it and save it to your personal Google account (CLICK: 'file' - > 'make a copy'). If this is not the case, just let me know and I will do whatever it takes to make this something you can use and edit and update for your personal use. I hope this helps people out there struggling to keep notes and all of this org

  12. Hey everyone, just wanted to get some feedback before I proceed to the next video. I just released a video covering how to choose your lure color on YouTube. If you have any constructive comments, just message me, or feel free to respond on here. YOUR feedback means the most to me. I am doing this channel for new FP gamers who want to get in-depth about the best ways to start catching more fish. I want to thank Kdog for his encouragement, and SabiScs for his support. There is a community on PS4 - NextGEN Fishing School as well, for newbies to ask questions if they need help. Thank you

  13. Hi, Guys! The Independence Trout Open is finally closed. We received a lot of feedback and questions regarding the PS4 performance, and we need to clarify some moments. The blue screen is a serious issue and, according to the complexity and technical aspects of the issue, resolving this problem could take a lot of time. The good news is that we are cooperating with Sony to present a solution as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding and stay tuned!

  14. Not sure if this is been brought up in the forums, but I know it's been discussed by several of our Club Members, and I believe Hate_ful mentioned it to Hegert in an email conversation. By my own stupidity, I've managed to loose a few x-series lures and assessories lol, and have used all my x-series 40lb. mono. Tmif wore out his x-series bobber, and Hate_ful lost an x-series frog popper due to a blue screen glitch. And I'm sure there are others who are in the same boat. I, and we, as mentioned above, think it would be an excellent idea that once you've unlocked or won x-series gear,

  18. Old post, STILL RELEVANT. so, seems after 1st qualifier of the Winter Pike Tour, people are being punished and banned due not PLAYING BY THE RULES. By doing this, just after the 1st qualifier, notes that FP are listening and doing things the right way. Now cheaters will not be able to participate in the other 2 qualifiers. Hopefuly they apply this in the future to normal, every-day comps.

  19. The coolest thing about bottom fishing is the possibility of using different rods simultaneously! That’s what makes so many anglers hyped about this way of fishing, and that’s exactly what we are currently working on!;) Once the whole Multi-rod feature is introduced to the game, we’ll also be adding new fishing equipment, namely the Rod Holders, that will let you catch fish using multiple rods at the same time! At first, we plan to add about 7 different kinds of Rod Holders, that will mostly differ by their rod capacity, being capable of holding from 1 to 4 rods each. This means th

  21. Just being civil here, but I feel this thread has gone off topic. Please, let us stop the accusations and finger pointing. This has become toxic. Let us all be vigilant and report the suspected cheaters and double dippers. Like we should. Forums should be a welcoming place to share ideas and make friends, not become a hostile place.

  23. 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.

  24. Soo..I spend a fair bit of time on this game. Since the Rowdies and Lepers went live I've fished exclusively for Rowdies. I've caught a few knowing the spots, even had 4 or 5 Lepers pick up Bully Grasshoppers unintentionally - I've yet to fish for the lepers specifically. In the interest of fairness, I have my challenges up right now onscreen and I have 89 Rowdies and 6 lepers. After fishing for the Rowdies exclusively since Monday, one night I spent with Hateful, BJtater and Del and our catch rate was low. So my question is, if someone like me who spends nearly all gamin

  25. Small answer. We have St. Patrick event for the third time. And every time we change something in the game along all year. And sometimes we don't have enough time to check the event with a CBT, because a huge update was on the way just before it. Our check shown the players mostly trying to catch event fish using small hooks, but I think with your 40+ lvl it's not the case. And looks like you guys frustrated with the event, we will try to improve the game and making an apology. It's hard to add a lot of stuff in the game and not break anything from old stuff.

  28. As per title, wishing everyone a happy and prosperous ( and fishy ) New Year! A massive thank you has to go to the dev team for giving us such a fantastic game and continually striving to make it what it is and even better. If they only manage to implement a fraction of the things they have planned for the future it will make an already awesome game even better for us real life anglers. Yes, there have been ups and downs, and yes, we're very vocal about the downs, but on the whole I think it's fair to say this is an incredible game. While there are little things like animation glitch

  30. The answer is simple - the game is already alive for 2+ years and grown up twice for this time. We will keep servers up at least 5+ years from now (actually I think 20+). Also, Xbox One version is coming in next half of the year with more servers. And kayaks coming next week, so your unlimited licenses will work for a very LONG time.

We are happy to tell you more what we have been working on since the release of feeder fishing and European waterways. Right now we are finalizing carp fishing and a new European waterway. The next one you will get an opportunity to explore is Weeping Willow located in the Kent County of South East England. It is an artificial equatorial complex of five lakes based on the Grasswickshire River. It is a perfect place for the professional anglers made by anglers, where fish species were carefully

  36. For a good example of what FP competitions are, research Chaos Theory. VV is right that comps have their own rules. However I disagree (very respectfully!) that a comp should have a random winner. Remember it is a computer system, 0's and 1's and algorithms and such. The players you see always at the top, even the multiple account/device cheaters, have put in the time to reduce their inefficiencies and maximize their optimum fishing times. The same 10 players everyone always sees at the top have it broken down by weather and minute. 5 PM on a cloudy day fish X spot with X lure. Catc

  37. Dennis, any chance of a timescale? You're teasing us with venues, can we get a solid date? I'm pretty confident every active user on this forum would happily act as a tester ( Say, Willow Lake) and provide feedback if that would help you guys along? 'Coming soon' is wearing thin.

The dev team is working on making Fishing Planet with equal access to everyone, and we have strong rules what to do with those who will use the second account, everyone has the same possibility to win the competition and reach all goods of Fishing Planet. If you have any suggestions about those who are cheating, please email support@fishingplanet.com and be sure that cheaters will be banned. Thank you for making our g

  39. If you can demonstrate to us - the masses - how to get 3 dot popping, I will pay for a years Premium to a random player of the FP teams choice who uses this forum. I can get 2 dots consistently, but I've never even entered the hallowed ground of 3 dots when it comes to poppers. Give us a vid of 3 dot popping, tell us how to achieve it in said vid and I will pay for 12 months of premium that you can transfer to the player of your choice.

  40. Could you not let newbies know what tackle etc will be required in advance of them travelling? I have no need to do the missions but I'm doing them anyway ( so are lots of level 40s ) and twice now I've been on a venue, told to go home to buy this or that, then return to the venue I was just at. Money is at a premium for new players, and while I can see how these missions are structured to ensure new players following them don't run out of money, surely a heads up before travelling stating that " you will need XXXXXX, XXXX XXXXX, XXXXXXXXXX and XXXXX to complete the missions here " w

  41. Why is fish tiring non existent? I get there should be more fight when using under powered rig, but hr long fights in a game is ridiculous. Especially when you get them reeled in under 20ft more than 5 times just to have them run 100ft out every time. I've been deep sea fishing catching 500+ lb fish that had less fight & reel time. That aspect of the game really needs tweaking, like put it on a timer (i.e. every 5-10mins of reel time drops the fish stamina by so many points) or something, because if we're good enough to keep 'em on the line without getting low tension or getting spooled th

I had 4 blue screen errors myself during the qualifier yesterday, 3 of those were tropy/unique Dolly Varden, and one of those I'm 99% certain was a unique Bull Trout. Nearly every contact that I've ever had with support even with photo proof end up with them telling me "They've checked the game files and it was on my end." That or not ever even so much as giving a response for months at a time. Just brushing it under the table and ignoring it. Every single player here has experienced the sam

I couldn't care less, I'm crap at competitions and barely enter them anymore as they don't matter to me. A bit of fun with friends at best. But, it is an amazing coincidence how all the top comp winners who post on here have the aforementioned dependent who has an account, while all those of us with just one account cannot place. And there are far more people playing than posting. Yup, sputter over your cornflakes. And don't get me started

  45. Hello there everyone, I am not a pro or anything close to it but after playing close to 90 days for 10+ hrs daily and after losing many fish I learned few things, which I am going to share below. 1. Don't use L2+R2 to get the strike right away when u see ur bobber taken away instead try moving ur right joystick left/right + R2.( u will notice the difference) 2. Repair ur rods/reels while u can because once it's broken u can't fix it or sell it. 3. Sell damaged X series lines/equipment to get baitcoins instead of removing them. 4. Take extra reels/lines for your trip it

Maybe once you've done everything there is to do you'll understand my dilemma. Barely a session goes by without someone asking how to catch xxxxxx uni, that is all I have to keep the game interesting now. Aside from that, there is absolutely nothing that makes me want to continue playing apart from the company of friends. But hey, you assume that after all the game hours I've put in a

But, I'm starting to reconsider my views given the amount of takes that I miss. I believe it changed at the same time kayaks were added? Before then they were fine, but as it stands it seems to me that the 12' and deeper are worthless now. The indicator shows any deep crank just dragging bottom now ( or hooking invisible Sasquatchs that drag Pierre up the mountain or invisible birds ). While it's

We are happy to announce December 5 as an official release date for the Topwater & Night Fishing as well as Kayaks fishing on PS4! It took us some time to do the porting and go through the approval procedures. But we have finally all settled down and in a week much awaited update will be waiting for you! Thank you for your patience and support. More new interesting features are to come soon. Stay tuned!

  49. We are fighting with cheaters from the beginning. And probably we will do it one again with some tuning. Now we have all Ps4 comps data which can be used as a reference model (PS4 is a trusted platform, cheating is extremely hard here). So we can use it to tune down our anticheat system on PC. Will start tomorrow and will write down the anticheat progress here.Finally, we have some time and manpower to do it right.
