    Please stop using this free to play argument. It starts to piss me off. When I purchase the Premium the grinding does not stop. Its not like you have better experience then. It helps a little. But really you still have to farm and this is ridiculous that you have 20+ lakes and thousands of tackles and in the end everyone are farming in Weeping Willow, California or Michigan. You pay 100 euros a year for a premium and you still have to grind, pay baitcoins to fast forward etc. I bet you that the Bolivia DLC that comes out will cost you more than 30 euros on PS4. Its a full price for an indie game. And in Fishing Planet you even don't get an unlimited license for the lake. You get 30 days access to the lake. Equipment you get is not the best one either. When you level up you probably replace it etc. I think we should actually not buy anything from them for a month that they would start listening to us. I know that they are not struggling financially so its pure greed and nothing else. I like the game and I really think you should spend money on it just to support the developers. But the prices they have right now will backfire sooner or later.

    Yes, it is the Crystal Burbot, otherwise known as the Bowfin of Canada. I can't remember anything older than 1 month.

    Actually I think it's for catching the crystal burbot during the Christmas event, the antlered salmon and furry trout challenges both give you a regular hat if I'm not mistaken (Santa and reindeer hats). It's the bomber hat that has the light and I like this hat better than the hard hat one as well, the light seems brighter to me.

    As Carpman says, you cannot purchase another cap with a light, however I believe you can earn one. You will have to complete Deer Hunter III over the Christmas Holidays by catching 150 Antlered Salmon

    No, I am not aware of a way to obtaining another cap (with a light). The only other cap with a headlamp I could find comes with the Topwater midnight pack DLC (not cheap). You could send an email support@fishingplanet.com with your game name, platform (PC, PS4 or Xbox) and a description of your problem. As the headlamp really enhances the night fishing experience it's a real shame you can't have a light on any hat you choose (IMO).

    To be honest, the question of how it’s done is in many fisherman’s minds, I have fished hard for carp for so long knowing you can get larger fish. I have seen people catching them and I just want to learn how. After hundreds of hours of trying different things you make some head way. Now because it’s the carp tourney that hard work pays of a little. It’s not handed on a plate, it’s not wrote down anywhere to find that I know of. When you get it it’s an amazing feeling. Now all I feel is I’m being attacked and accused of cheating and I’m sure I speak for others, it’s not nice to be accused of cheating. fishing planet could confirm we are not cheating I am sure. the ability to catch these fish has been there for as long as I know as there was always a name up there with an amazing fish. I just wanted to be that name and now I’m there I feel I am now being attacked and don’t think it’s fair. please consider what you say, put the shoe on the other foot

    correct, there is no cheating in this game except for the losers with multiple accounts. guys who spend hours and come across a mix that nets them bigger fish or more fish are not cheating. imagine the look on their faces when they discover this exploit. everyone would love that feeling. this is a fishing planet issue as usual they are in the wrong with their crappy development practices

    When I first starting fishing Weeping Willow, UK, I had no clue what spodding and groundbait carp fishing was about. I just used sweet peas and sweet corn with bottom rods. Then I tried carp rods with random boilies and pellets, no spod, no pvc, no method, slightly better results. Then I tried random groundbait and spod mixing with random boilies and pellets. Ummm, results indicated that I was wasting money as this was slightly better than using just peas and corn. Then I paid attention to the daily/nightly temperature patterns, weather patterns, groundbait temps, aroma temps and looked at bottom composition of bouyed spots. Tailored spod mixes to ambient temps and matched pellet and boilies to the warm/cool weather flavors of groundbait/aromas and bottom textures. Amount of trophies and unis per 6 hours of peak time fishing took a dramatic rise. I got a consistent pattern of Uni bites about 4 every 2 game hour period. I could only land 1 Uni at a time if there were more than 1 Uni on my rod stand. Swapping Uni rods tended to make me lose one of the Unis to line slack after switching rods. This amounted to 3 Unis per each 2 peak game hours. I usually got multiple Unis to bite within the first peak game hour but can only reel in 1 at a time. I prefer to fish carp during peak hours as there are more trophies and less young carps. I keep tweaking recipes and bait combos to see if I can increase carp weight and attract more trophies and unis. I suspect there is a cold water combo of bait and groundbait that is more effective than pairing boilies/pellets to matching groundbait. I'll be testing this theory further. I can't do more warm water testing at this time because ponds do not get warm enough in the fall unless there is a competition with off season warm weather. I'll be posting my Weeping Weeping Willow UK Carp Creels so you folks can see which bait and groundbait combos the carps preferred. My keepnet/creel is 1102 Lb max. I'm in the process of clipping and uploading my creels, weather conditions and chum recipes and combos to get a sense of how I made some of my observations. I'm sorry that I'm not set-up to do videos at the moment, but I did take many screenshots to record my findings. I'll figure out videos later as I've been requested to video some of the bugs I've encountered. 9/7/2020: 1 Day Warm Water Chum Creel (9 Unis) 9/8/2020: 1 Day Cool Water X Flavour Creel (6 Unis) 2 Day Cool Water Giant Octopus Creel (5 Unis) 9/9/2020 1 Day Cool Water X Flavour/Octo Creel (9 Unis) 2 Day Cool Water X Flavour/Octo Creel Double Strength (9 Unis) 3 Day Cool Water X Flavour/Octo Creel Double Strength with Heavier PVA (12 Unis but odd weather change) My Daily Carp Creel Diary will be posted in this forum at Carp A Diem. Weeping Willow UK Carp Observations: 1. Warm water days are extremely sparse but the chum recipe is 2 ingredients. 2. Expect cool water days for awhile during fall and winter and expect to clutter your inventory with 5 ingredient all purpose weather spod mix. 3. If you plan to do both a tournament and farm before or after, you might want to bring both warm and cold baits and groundbaits. Tournaments can have unseasonal warm weather. Carp appear to be more attracted to sweet and nutty baits in warm water. They crave spicy garlicky baits in cool, overcast and rainy weather. 4. Medium PVA is more cost efficient than Heavy PVA. Heavy PVA is wasteful for exp and cash farming. Heavy PVA might be more useful in tournaments for slightly heavier carp. You'll only need 1 bag of groundbait per rod if you fish till you fill a 1102 Lb keepnet with 4 rods. You'll need 2 bags of expensive groundbait if you use heavy PVA. I'd like to use flat feeders to save on PVA costs, but this means I need to make space for 4 feeders versus 1 slot of stackable PVA. My tackle has limited space. Also, flat feeders tend to glitch for my steam PC set-up. This slows down my ability to manage multiple rods. 5. I suspect unis regenerate at least every 3 game hours in the same spot. Either move after the 3rd or 4th Uni, or advance to another peak period. I need to test this further to be sure. I usually just fish one spot because I'm dyslexic and easily get disoriented if I need to move around too much. I also hate reclipping my rods to a new spot. 6. If I didn't release all my regular carp, my keepnet fills up in about 1 hour IRL. Since I'm still exping, I aim for at least 9 Unis a creel, the rest are all trophies. Fishing like this takes a little longer but gives fast exp and has less wear and tear on a pricey gear. 7. I'm pretty sure X Flavour Aroma is just a cool way of saying Spicy Red Robin Mix by the way it obviously enhances spicy and garlic groundbaits. It's like the 11 herbs and spices that make Kentucky Fried Chicken "finger licking good." Red Robin is a traditional spicy bait enhancing additive by Haiths. 8. The combination of Giant Octopus and X Flavour aromas produces a synergistic effect on Garlic flavored boilles and groundbait. I'm from Hawaii where giant octopus are common where my grandfather fished. Giant octopus aroma contains sea food flavours a giant octopus would be attracted to. Octopus doesn't really have a smell unless it is rotting in the sun or have much taste unless it is enhanced with spices and soy sauce. I fancy chum made from various plant grains, spices and sea food flavoring as the equivalent of delicious sushi for carp. Haiths, the makers of Red Robin carp attractant discusses a similar formulation >here<. 9. Between 3.5-to-4.0 percent of aroma yields similar results to twice that amount. So about 2 percent of Octopus and 2 percent of X Flavour provides enough chemoreceptor enhancing magic for carp. I've doubled the aromas and have seen no great improvement in carp size or attraction. I guess the chemo-receptor carp AI is just keen to a certain amount of chemical concentration and chemical signature. Currently, the carp AI favors a 4% combination of seafood (Giant Octopus Aroma), Red Robin Spices (X Flavour Aroma), and Garlic with Spice boilies, pellets, and groundbait. This chemical signature will change when the weather becomes warm again in the Spring or during an unseasonal competition/tournament or when developers feel the carp are bored. 10. There are several warm water feeder baits and aromas, but only a handful of cool or all purpose feeder baits and aromas. Since it is the start of fall, the water temperature at Weeping Willows UK is cool and will be cool for awhile. Therefore, you need to make your own all season grain mix with all season carp aromas until Spring and Summer weather returns next year. 11. Weeping Willow UK ponds are silty and weedy. Pop-up boilies and pellets should logically do better per description of product. I still need to do more testing on the effect of leader length as carp tend to be bottom dwelling scavengers like catfish. I'm not sure if carp AI is more sensitive to color and motion during the day and aroma at night. Or if the baby carp hang more at the bottom or middle. I want less baby carp and more trophies and unis to exp on. So far, I'm getting more trophies and unis with pop-ups in the UK. 12. In Hawaii, where carp comes to us in the form of a revered Japanese Koi pet, carp are beautiful, smart and can be tamed. They will follow you eagerly around the pond and wait to be hand fed. Carp will grow wary of sameness and begin to reject favorite foods and textures which is why carp baiting is so complex. Carp develop a keen culinary sense according to weather and seasonal changes. I suspect the wild carp AI is programmed with similar chemo-receptor signatures, colors, texture, seasonal and weather sensibilities and boredom.

    Sadly, many have fallen victim to this poor description with DLC's. Many buy DLC's thinking that it also contains a "pond pass", and not just a license for the waterway. A pond pass is needed if your existing level cannot unlock a higher level waterway. Some DLC's however do contain a "pond pass".

    my m8 got 9 packages delivered when buying blue crab he has 9 boats rods reels etc lol then when trying to fish it it said he didnt have a licence and fined him . they just transfer it over with no thought . have to say FP is the worst company ive ever encountered in the gaming world . fp still has so many bugs its impossible to fish anywhere without encountering one ,and yes anyone buying blue crab needs hospital treatment

    Why do you even buy this shit? 10€ is a fucking rip off. I thought the game was supposed to end all the money spending but now I'm supposed to pay for updates? Fuck you! You ruined Fishing Planet with the grind and now The Fisherman as well. Fuck you, I'm out!

    So there's a known ground bait glitch to use for carp fishing and you can see it in the results so far in the qualifying.. those of us that don't know it or don't want to use it are basically spectators! What's the point in competing.. if i'm not making a valid point please do tell.

    as a general rule you can do the following to determine which brake setting to use 1) between the line and leader select the lesser of the two values for the calculation 2) Read the maximum reel strength value (listed in reel description) 3) Determine the total number of brake settings on your Reel. (usually 6, 8, 12) 4) divide the max reel strength (item 2 above), with the total number of brake settings (item 3). That will give you the brake resistance for each incremental setting. 5) click your brake to the setting position that is just below your weakest link of line or leader In the example below I have listed the strengths for both the Kraken 8000 (max 19.65kg) and Kraken 9000 (max 21.5kg), both have 12 settings, and determined best setting setting for max resistance is 1 click from the top when I use Fluoro .60 for the kraken 8000. It will give you max resistance at 18.013kg when the strength of the line is 18.1 Kg. you can't get any closer than that.

    This is a rip off. Paid for and game froze now it took away my 50,000 and 20 baitcoins and location is locked.I'm not trying to buy it again. Hope they can fix it or Microsoft store refunds my money. Should have stuck with the free version,at least it works

    I agree that this chum mix is unreasonable. I would not call it a cheat. More than likely it's a bug in the bite system. There are actually some videos in Youtube that give a hint about the mixture. And it will be made public next week. But to be honest my only issue with this mixture is that it has to be so exact and that it gives you fishes that don't exist in real life. Other than that its normal that mixing chum increases the bite rate or fish sizes.

    I think I've followed those threads more or less, maybe I missed the exact recipe being mentioned, apologies if that's the case. Regarding the tournament though, Q2 was doable. Except if I used a glitch recipe and I don't even know it, who knows, everything's possible I guess.

    Day 1 (9/12/2020) Pt. 2 Rod 1: Boilies Tiger Nut Pop-up .8" (Neutral Warm Bait) Method 2 5/6 oz. with Hot Spices Method Mix (All Season Groundbait) Rod 2: Boilies Tiger Nut Pop-up .8" (Neutral Warm Bait) PVA Med with Garlic Pellets .24" (Neutral Warm Groundbait) Rod 3: Boilies Spices Pop-up .8" (All Season Bait) PVA Med with Garlic Pellets .24" (Warm Groundbait) Rod 4: Pellets Garlic Pop-up .6" (Neutral Warm Bait) Method 2 5/6 oz. with Hot Spices Method Mix (All Season Groundbait) Observations: Only 10 unis this round. I was an idiot. I should limit uni magnet configurations to 1 rod. I lost a few unis to line slack by trying to reel 2 in with furious rod swapping. Tiger Nut, a slightly warm weather aroma, appears to work well when paired with spicy or garlic groundbait aromas. Rods 1 and 2 were highly active, with Rod 2 being slightly more active than Rod 1. Curious how neutral warm aromas stimulate carp chemo receptors in cool water. I think this fact is further evidence that aromas have different activation times based on sugar content ratios programed into the fishing AI. Today's result leads me to believe that the fishing AI favors calorie rich proteins with savory spices during cool weather. Warm weather has a different chemo receptor profile of sugary calories. I should try spicy with stinky meats combo in my next test since the fish AI is looking for calories mixed with savory spices. Also of note: I'm using red braid on Rod 2 and green braid on Rod 1. If the carp AI is sensitive to line color, carp should be avoiding the more popular Rod 2 which uses red braid. Either the carp REALLY love garlic, or they are programmed to be line blind. I'm seeing similar line color blindness to the carp in Russia which had warm weather when I last visited. PS: I'm late in posting, already did the other test...another WOWSER. Spicy stinky calories slayed the mighty Tiger Nuts! Stay tuned as I collate the data. Been sick yesterday.

    Day 1 (9/12/2020) pt. 1 Observations: I have 13 Unis recorded for this game day but actually caught 14. I had to release the last uni because my keepnet was over capacity. I would need to let 2-3 trophies go at a loss of about 2k in profit to keep the last uni. Tiger Nut with Hot Spice Method Mix feed stole the Uni Show in cool weather. While boilies bait does not have a weather rating, boilies groundbait do. Tiger Nut is a nutty warm weather aroma so I paired it with a random cool weather mix, Hot Spices. Wow. The rod with this pairing was super active throughout the 6 game hour test run. I was expecting the other 3 flavors/aromas to beat Tiger Nut. Unique Break Down: Tiger Nut Boilies with Hot Spice Method Mix Feed = 9 uni = 70% efficacy Garlic Pellets with Garlic Boilies Feed = 2 uni = 15% efficacy Spices Boilies with Hot Spice Method Mix Feed = 1 uni = 7.5% efficacy Crab Boilies with Crab Boilies Feed = 1 uni = 7.5% efficacy Please don't get too comfortable with these results as there are other parameters that I have yet to test like synergistic effect with other aromas, line color, rainy weather, bait color/shape and more warm water testing. Not enough testing has been done to use my results as any sort of optimized meta. Listen to the more senior players who have way more knowledge about the fishing AI than I do. PS: If you guys see me catching a bunch of Unis and Trophies then a bunch of Commons and Young, that means I filled my creel to capacity and am testing how the leftover feeder and chum affects corn, sweet corn, peas and sweet peas. Thank you to the kind veterans who try to teach me in game. I'm curious by nature and must investigate what makes things tick. The grind doesn't excite me as much as my amateur mad scientist experiments. The next test is a trial run with method feeder and PVAs. The glitches I have had last month with method feeders seem to be fixed now. Thank you dev team

    The investigation has been provided at PS4 platform in the reason of cheating and farming of in-game currency. The Sponsored Competitions creation licenses have been revoked for some players.

    Again tho....they are making content that very few of their playerbase will actually ever spend any time on or even have much access too at all. Wouldnt it make more sense to let players experience the majority of the game ? Ill say it again , and theres really no argument against it....If someone gets a new account tomorrow there is little to no chance they will EVER see all of the new species and places due to the unreasonable leveling system.

    What u don’t realise futjam I also put in the work I used to be like u with paper everywhere but have fine tuned everything I do ! I also have hours and hours into finding the mix ! But it wouldn’t be fair if I beat people I class as friends In say mighty carp with a fish that shouldn’t be there ! so I’m giving it away on the YouTube channel (don’t care about subs ) I believe in beating people with a better rotation/spots and knowledge not an exploit dude u did realise when u lot started to hit these fish there would be players like me that put in serious time on this game that would go a find out what’s up And to be fair futjam it wasn’t u that spurred me to find this out it was the vffs as I was beat twice by a 74lb mirror in jolly carp and ur comment u put in the work and I got rewarded how do u no what I’m doing is The same as u ? Oh yeah coz it’s an exploit and has to be exact I put in work myself and found it so I’m free to do what I want with information I found - it wasn’t given to me hard graft and boring fishing at willows found it for me . take care anyways
