  1. From a recent killerwhale interview with another player, It is likely that the next waterway will be on a new continent, possibly Asia or Africa, and may include saltwater species also

  3. I'm not sure about the time frames, but yeah unique sizes drop quite a bit after 7-10 days and don't pick back up again until around day 21-23. If I'm looking for just big unis I only fish the first 7 days then leave and come back to try again. It's not because of a recent update, I noticed it over a year ago when I was skipping from night to night during a community event on PS4, trying to get a gafftopsail catfish over 10 lbs., never did catch one lol.

  6. There is currently no way I know of to get the lure back. Did hear it mentioned (somewhere) that the Developers might look into a way of obtaining lost limited edition lures (like the Golem lure) in the future but were currently too busy with new waterways (think they were releasing the South American waterways at that time). I have not seen anything official mentioning that this will ever happen but would be really nice if it did (losing one of your favourite lures is never any fun).

  7. Dear carp friends, I'm raiding a new angler's Fishing Planet stream on Wednesdays. I'm not abandoning all things carp. I still have Russian fish school telemetry to sonar scan for predator and common carp as well as carp species isolation mixes to finalize. I enjoy helping new players make the most of having fun on Fishing Planet and The Fisherman. Helping support new players helps the community grow. The more our little game community grows, the more we can bug the developers to keep adding new content. The fishing party is just friends from all over the world, spouses, bros, gals having fun fishing and raiding each others Youtube and Twitch channels. I know I can be overly scientific when talking carp, so I guess that makes me the resident Lady Neil deGrasse Tyson of the Fishing Planet trout party. If you are new to Fishing Planet, you are welcome to join our rag tag party on Youtube and learn how to fish while having fun. Feel free to ask questions, and I'll try to answer them without getting too technical. The party is family friendly for most part, except when we misunderstand each others accents, regional slang and awful puns. High level veteran anglers are also welcome to help answer questions and laugh along with us. Next lake we are partying at is Falcon Lake, Oregon. We're mostly going to focus on trout fishing this run so I can get some of the people ready to fish the Rainbow Outlaw Monster. I think some of them tried hunting monsters earlier without me and lost rods and hair. Sigh. Since many of the party goers are relatively new to Fishing Planet and The Fisherman, I'm going to be the one supplying everyone attending with Telemetry and Tackle details. I have included some of my favorite trout hunting techniques which more advanced users may find helpful in the official Trout Tournament.

  8. Competitive Moby Hunting Each time Jim Kaf sails a 14/0 cap'n hook into Arbor Lake after he carpet bombs the lake with his super particle collider groundbait mix, he creates an entanglement with the server to roll up to 5 different carp within a 35k average range with potential spikes close to 50k and a few below the 20k range. The carp only nibble one at a time to conserve server and end user resources. Smaller hooks, smaller particle mixes, different baits and different aroma intensities result in a smaller weight average or bigger spike range. Jolly Carp contenders like Jim Kaf and Eluce often run custom competitions on Fishing Planet using the same parameters of upcoming competitions to resolve Groundbait Bait and Tackle Channel effectiveness against competition Environmental Channel parameters. These guys need to produce 40k mirror and leather carp averages consistently to win. On The Fisherman, where there are no custom competitions and upper limit of hook size remains at 10/0, top competition average is only 30k per carp. Practice runs, hook size, stable moby mix, and a steady high speed internet connection is what wins carp competitions on Fishing Planet. Moby Hunting Failure If you ain't placing very high in Jolly Carp on Fishing Planet several things could be at fault. Poor internet connections causes missing data, bottleneck data trickle, faulty instances, disconnections, and broken rod mechanics where rods struggle to load groundbait. Missing data throws off game physics and math calculations. Musette's internet fails in this category. As much as you think you practice, you likely don't practice as devotedly as someone like Jim Kaf. I thought Jim had more game wealth than I did because he's been playing Fishing Planet much longer than I have and is a much higher rank. He spends quite a bit of fishing cash conducting practice game competitions to git gud. I have 3 times more game wealth than he does in Fishing Planet because Jim spends generously on custom competitions. I just conduct fishing experiments on both Fishing Planet and The Fisherman platforms in regular competitions and instances. I'm a science nerd while Jim is a competitive beast. I have a bad habit of dropping competitions to chase anomalies like the recently discovered Carp Ballet whilst in the middle of a Lucky Ghost competition. I really should be conducting science observations in custom competitions rather than official competitions. Twilight Zone A competition is a special instance or dimension of your favorite waterway. Everything looks the same. However, underwater, Twilight Willows is a shadow version of Weeping Willows. Fish school populations are reduced. Your favorite fishing spot might not be active. You need know to several active spots through experience. You need to know how to stimulate fish feeding behavior through very narrow preset Environmental Channel parameters. If you only have one great mix that works on a rainy, high pressure day, you will score poorly. If your internet connection is less than stellar or the server is over taxed, Twilight Willows could become glitched. Welcome to the Twilight Zone. (Jim, we should have a Rod Serling impersonator narrating!) Carp Ballet Not all oversized moby carp which can be summoned will inhale bait on a 14/0 hook. One of the delights of fishing on Fishing Planet, as opposed to The Fisherman, is that you can watch carp nibbling up close. Some of the larger carp may not take a bait on a short leader. These oversized carp may approach from the top and need to do a couple of twists before inhaling the bait. If the leader is too short or the hook is on an incline, the fish won't be able to complete his twist ballet. Thus, if you are watching large carp dropping the bait while smaller carp pick it up, adjust the leader length and try again. The moby place holder that dropped the bait will remain with his school until the school moves on. Some carp schools are confined to a small territory while other carp schools, like in Germany, have a wider migratory path. Till next time, I leave you all with real life footage of how spod carpet affects schools of small fish, large carp school, then schools of small fish again until the spod is mostly eaten, similar to spod carpet life cycle in Fishing Planet. The devs did well calculating fish behavior and spodding dynamics in Weeping Willows, UK. Disclaimer: No Jim Kafs were harmed in the making of this Carpumentary. Jim Kaf does not neccessarily subcribe to any of Musette's sus fish mechanic theories. Musette needs to update her carp diary with remixes but has been too lazy to do so. Just play around with particle amounts and a few ingredients to create your own Jackson Pollock underwater masterpieces!

  9. I try to picture what kind of research went into the fishing AI and how detailed the devs chose to be. How does randomization fit into generating fish size or bite rate? How does range and angle fit in? Is range and angle the reason underwater cheaters attract larger fish faster? If range and angle are a factor, if I equip a waggler or a heaver tackle, can I approach the same marker from another long range position and get another set of fish to spawn? (Yes, in San Joaquin!) Did the devs program fish behavior according to season? If so, do some of these fishing aromas simulate fish pheromone behavior like I believe X Flavour does? I don't expect to win competitions mostly because my Comcast connection tends to bottleneck and lag way too much. However, I do fish through competitions to collect and compare data to see what parameters are different and similar. I may start holding custom competitions of my own to study randomization in controlled settings. I enjoy learning what makes things tick. Take note of the people who run custom competitions. Some of them may be studying game parameters in depth to help them ace official competitions. When I take my boy fishing IRL, he loves just watching the water and sky intently. He tells me, "Mom, whoever created the fish and birds is a great engineer to be able to make fish fly in the water and birds swim in the sky." My boy enjoys learning what makes things tick too.
