  1. Hello anglers! A lot of time has passed since our last Diary. We wasted no time and can finally tell you about our new big update that we’ve prepared for you — the Congo River! You will be able to explore the Congo River on Steam late November — early December, and on consoles in a couple of weeks after that! Here, in the heart of Africa, the vast tropical rainforest covers both banks of the great Congo River, the deepest river in the world. This unique biome is home to hundreds of unique mammals and thousands of bird and fish species. This is where the last corners of the wild, unexplored nature are hidden. So what can our anglers expect from the Congo River? In its middle reaches (just below Boyoma Falls), the river flows through the territory of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and consists of a chain of lake-like pools with a huge number of islands overgrown with tropical forests and impassable swampy stretches of land. The pond is located on the equator, that’s why the weather is hot all year round. Frequent fogs and strong intermittent rains give way to heat and high humidity. But then the low water season (or dry season) comes, bringing excellent conditions for fishing! The pond is practically devoid of emergent vegetation. High coastal grass only grows near the banks, in shallow creeks and channels, resembling a thick wall. Running muddy water flows north to south, characterized by a weak current in wide areas and a medium current in narrow stretches. The average depth of the river in these places is about 4–7 meters. And on vast shoals and in narrow channels, the depth ranges from 1.5 to 3 meters. The bottom of the central deep-water channels is mainly clay-earthen, with small sandy areas. However, on the shores overgrown with grass, as well as in shallow bays and creeks, it is muddy.The southern part of the pond features a rocky bottom. At the Congo River, we have prepared as many as seven locations. There are few of them: Cable Ferry Wild Islands Bomuna Settlement Hanging Bridges The Congo is generally not the easiest place to fish, and you’ll have to do your best, but your efforts will be rewarded many times over! After all, we have introduced 17 absolutely new species of fish, including some unique African endemics such as: the Nile Perch, which can reach a weight of about 200 kilograms, as well as the Goliath Tigerfish, and the African Tigerfish are the main targets for which anglers come to Africa from all over the world! And believe us, these are some of the most coveted trophies for anglers from all over the world! Of course, we couldn't leave you unequipped for battles with such monsters. That’s why we’ve prepared some unique baits for you, such as Caddis Larva, African Giant Water Bug, and Banana Bread. In addition to that, you’ll be able to use some real delicacies when fishing for the voracious African predators: Canned Meat, Buffalo Kidney, and Small Tilapia. So get your best gear ready, friends! After all, you’re about to have the opportunity to explore these amazing fishing grounds and test your skills on the African continent!

  2. This response is completely unacceptable. Fishing Planet didn't even make an attempt to aknowlege there was a problem while it was going on. Coming out and saying there was a "technical issue" is rediculous. You need to be honest with your community and tell them what happened. Someone made a mistake and set the run time for 2 hrs and not the 20 hrs. To fix this correctly, you should be rerunning the qualifer. You have many people that have invested a ton of time practicing for this tourment and they didn't even get a chance to compete. You guys need to wake up and realize what is going on. The new content has been really poor. The last two tournements have been completely lame and shown zero creativity. This is going to push more and more people away from this game. You guys thought that creating a mobile app was best.... this was a terrible decision that has impacted the core game. You guys need to take feedback from your playerbase. This response is lazy and IT WILL DRIVE PEOPLE AWAY FROM THIS GAME!

  3. Chapter 1 "FORMA MENTIS" and White Moose Let's talk about two much loved spinning competition to explain what I mean by "FORMA MENTIS": Triple Trout and Big Red Fish. Identify the spots that can give us the desired prey, identify the baits that give the best results and in what times. Be ready to quickly understand when you are wasting time and change the necessary. The competitions examined have the same duration, 45 minutes, but two completely different approaches. These two ways of dealing with them will recur for many others. I mean as a mental disposition. Triple trout: we divide the competition into three halves of 15 minutes each. 1st spot - 1st quarter Here we must take, within the first quarter, 1 unique lake trout (pt.10) 2 lake trout trophies (pt.10) 1 unique splake (pt.12) 1 trophy splake (pt.6) not necessarily: 1 single brook (pt.8) 1 tropical brook (pt.4) A number of common, at least 4 (pt.8) for a total of about 45-58 points in the first quarter. When we are trained to achieve this result in the first half we move on to the second. 2nd and 3rd spot 2nd quarter time If we didn't get the only one from the brook in the first quarter we have to get it here. 2 trophy lake (pt.10) 2 trophy splake (pt.12) a number of common of all species (pt.10) 1st Spot - 3rd quarter now let's go back to the first spot where they should regenerate: 2 trophy splake (pt.12) 2 trophy lake (pt.10) 1 brook trophy (pt.4) a number of common of all species. (pt.10) The total of points with this round is ideally 126, you win even with less. If you have grasped the concept of time and generation, just train. So we shot three spot at regular intervals, not going back and forth like the fools. We have identified which fish we need to obtain and at what times. We have a "round". The "round" is something that we must remember for almost all competition. The unique of the lake trout can be taken in the first launches, so I suggest you give it a try right away with the roach spoon or the like. With the sun she will eat immediately under the surface of the water or in the fall, if it doesn't happen, don't despair and stop and go to the bottom. However, if we didn't catch it on the third launch change lure and switch to the narrow spoon 21g. # 3/0 better yet x-series narrow barbless spoon 14g. # 3/0. 36g # 4/0 x series bullet spinner is also fine. Experiment and find the one that satisfies you the most. Stop and go on the bottom is certainly the technique that gives the best results. As the lure descends, move it slightly to keep the line under tension. BIG RED FISH: Here too we have the famous round. The tour gives us the times, going randomly from one spot to another leads to nothing. In this competition we have the case in which what really matters is the lure and the technique, taking for granted the mindset of the round. I repeat myself but it is important that I try to make myself understood. We divide the lake into 5 sectors, in the center of which we will have markers for the trophy. The bait to be used is only one (more unique than rare case) and it is this: The technique is more difficult, if only for the patience it requires. Stop and go to the surface of the water. your cranck must never, and I mean never, sink. It should launch around 50 meters stop and go up to 28 meters and then recover quickly. Optimizing times with catches, it is useless to waste time under 25 meters, except in sector 4 and 5 where you should launch around 38 meters and recover up to 15 mt. We start from the first portion on the left, even if we take the trophy we continue we start until the fish come out. At the first empty launch, change part of the lake passing through the center of the wooden quay, then all the way to the right of the quay. Let us remember that he will not give us more than 4 trophies in the whole competition if we are lucky. 3 we expect them. The first 3 portions we take from "Fisherman's Hut", the other 2 spawns "Damn Road". If you follow these tips they will surely be in the first positions, just see the same names all the time. In chapter 2 we will go to Marron River for other techniques but with the same mentality, If you have favorite competitions that you want to give priority to leave a comment below. For any doubts leave a comment below. For those who hate me: fuck you.

  4. Hello dear friends. As many of you know major part of our team is located in Ukraine. On February 24th our reality has changed dramatically as Russia started full flagged war against Ukraine. Most of our team members woke up from explosions on the street and since then our life will never be the same. Sorry for not getting in touch earlier, our primarily focus has been to take care of our team and families and get them to safety. We are monitoring the situation closely and adapting to the changes as quickly as possible.Though part of our team still remains in Kyiv, we manage to maintain the necessary viable operation. However the response time from our team might slow down, given the circumstances. Russian invasion is an outrageous act of violence in the modern world. We are experiencing missile strikes on civil buildings in Kyiv and almos all cities in Ukraine, air raid sirens are going off not stop all over Ukraine. Killing civilians, shooting ambulances and bombing kindergartens and hospitals - these are some of humanitarian crimes Russia has conducted over the last 5 days. We can’t remain indifferent and will support our nation and army in all ways possible. We believe in our armed forces and the bravery of our men and women. Ukraine will always fight for its freedom and independence! If you are willing to support Ukraine in our fight here are some ways how you can help: NBU Account to raise funds for Ukraine’s Armed Forces This account accepts multiple currencies. It has been established and opened to receive transfers from international partners and donors in both foreign currency (U.S. dollars, euros, UK pounds) and hryvnias. https://bank.gov.ua/en/news/all/natsionalniy-bank-vidkriv-spetsrahunok-dlya-zboru-koshtiv-na-potrebi-armiyi

  5. WOW We all know mistakes can happen but why not just run Q3 again today there is plenty of time. The option chosen by the devs is horrible. 25000 back that will really affect my 4.4 million balance. Like everyone else in this comp I just wanted to get a chance to qualify, maybe run it again next week.

  6. Wow 25k credits for hours of practice lost (and I made it through on Q2) do better FP. everyone who signed up for that tournament should be given 1st place rewards for q3 at a minimum! Hand out some bait coins/cash/x series gear and you’ll get positive PR, 25k ain’t it guys you can catch a friggin shark and make more than that.

  7. Rig Basics and Perch Rocket Science at the Congo and Beyond PART 1: Rig Basics Hey, Musette. Why are you doing a tutorial on Rigs? Why bother when there are so many other less complicated methods of fishing? For the same reason I started my carp diary back in the summer of 2020. Groundbait mixing was misunderstood and the people who actually knew how to create mixes for 40kg carp were often harassed by those who didn't know how to mix groundbait. Now the field of groundbait has become so refined that we have mad scientists who create groundbait that break the 50kg barrier in Germany and are close to breaking 50kg in UK. Groundbait mixing is a heck of a lot more complicated than than rigging. If this mad scientist can conjure monster carp effortlessly with groundbait, surely I can crush rigging. Besides, rigging is such a sexy, SEXY angling beast. The method behind rigging is all about slow, tantalizing seduction. Bass, trout, perch, catfish and predator fish are captivated by the alluring slither and scamper of prey kicking-up bottom debris and leaping up and down through silt clouds and vegetation. Essentially, you are coaxing the fishing AI to generate a fish that will continue to follow the lure and strike at it multiple times up to and even under your boat. Phenomenally, rig fishing defeats the 12-13 meter distance nerf where the fishing AI will either send a BOLT command to a following fish or a CEASE fish generation command when the lure is too close to the angler. Furthermore, perfect rig presentation means that the first perch to attack will often be the school leader, a unique that matches the range size of your offset hook and range size of your softbait and color in relation to peak time and environmental conditions. Rigging is so deliciously wicked. If you know where to fish and how often the uniques and trophies are generated, you can fill a 700kg keepnet in less than 30 minutes through rigging alone. With lighter tackle, rigging has the force to summon uniques all over Fishing Planet with the right softbait lure. RIG STIMULI Visual disturbance by kicking-up bottom debris through scampering; Visual disturbance by rustling vegetation; Visual slithering movement that mimics larva, worms and tiny eels; Visual leaping movement that mimics decapods, larva, injured fish; Visual pop of color; Visual shape of soft bait; Sound clicking that mimics the snapping of decapods claws. RIG RETRIEVALS Full Sweep Side Sweep Combined Sweep A vertical twitch adds more kinetic energy to lift a tethered lure on a long leader, up above vegetation if fishing in tall grass for bass while sweeping. Sweeping deploys mostly stop and go or slow straight retrieval from side to side sweeping to produce scampering movement that disturbs silt and vegetation. While you can just use stop&go, twitch or straight retrievals, you are not focusing the full power of the force without the sweep, young Jedi. PRESENTATIONS 3-Way Rig: 3-Way Rig shines in silty river bottoms as it is designed to scamper and kick-up a lot of silt through it's use of dangling drop sinkers. The drop sinkers kick-up more silt than bullet sinker assemblies to create a robust visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. While glass beads can be attached to the 3-way to provide flash and sound, the FP packaging for 3-Way does not include beads. This assembly puts a high value on the large silt cloud presentation which mimic a stampede of scampering, panicking critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. This is my favorite rig for perch and catfish because I can control when to set the hook as perch attack can begin as the assembly glides to the bottom all the way to under my boat. Carolina Rig: Carolina Rig shines in tall vegetation lake and river bottoms and can hit all 7 attraction stimuli. The front loaded bullet sinker allows for the angler to slither the rig assembly on the bottom through grassy vegetation with short sweeping motion and jerks to lift the lure above the vegetation. The bullet sinkers kick-up a small cloud of bottom debris to create a visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. It's designed to make sound to further draw attention to the lure. A clicking sound is achieved through bouncing on the lake floor while a bullet sinker clacks against a glass bead. This assembly mimics slithering critters like larva, worms, and eels in addition to jumping critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. It also mimics the sound of crustaceans clicking their claws. Fish attack on this assembly midway and closer to the angler. Texas Rig: Texas Rig is versatile and hits all 7 attraction stimuli. It is capable of both slithering through vegetation and scampering through silt with it's back loaded bullet sinker. It's designed to make sound. The bullet sinkers kick-up a small cloud of bottom debris to create a visual disturbance while the leaping lure entices the perch to strike multiple times. Perch will follow the lure right up to the boat where it gets it's most lift. It's designed to make sound to further draw attention to the lure. A clicking sound is achieved through bouncing on the lake floor while a bullet sinker clacks against a glass bead. This assembly mimics slithering critters like larva, worms, and eels in addition to jumping critters like shrimp, crayfish, prawns and scared minnows. It also mimics the sound of crustaceans clicking their claws. Fish attack on this assembly midway and closer to the angler. RESEARCH DATA: Perch School Sampling Data:

  8. There were so many options you could have taken, and this is the one you chose? Wow, what a letdown. The first mistake was not even acknowledging that there was an issue to begin with and waiting until q3 was over to release this bulls#it statement about it. Instead of rerunning the qualifier, or postponing the semis to allow a vast majority to get a chance at q3, you offer to refund the tournament cost, which should be a given considering they didn't get what they paid for, and offer "compensation"... I have zero faith in the compensation you will give, given your history with what you think the players would like. *side eyes the awful Twitch drops*. Please, feel free to continue to show your player base how much you actually do not care about them, while popping up ads in the game to buy more DLC packs and premium stuff.

  11. PART 2: 3-Way Rigging and Perch Rocket Science in the Congo For my first video, I'm going to demonstrate how to land (and launch!) those huge Nile Perch using a 3-Way rig. Note: If you are a carper, you do almost all your fishing in metric because groundbait mixing reasons. Apologies in advance if your mind is wired in imperial units. Jedi don't do imperial units. Included in this video are: How to set-up the complete tackle from Tropicana 220 casting rod to rig assembly. Pro-tip on river bottom terrain surveying Three retrieval methods: FULL SWEEP SIDE SWEEP COMBINED SWEEP 2x Nile Perch Schools with a total of 2x Uniques and 2x Trophies Bonus new Perch Rocketry Sport! Prior to level 80, you want to get the most powerful casting rod available, the Tropicana 220, Bailina 8000 casting reel, 40kg test braid, Titanium Leader 41.5kg test 0.48 at length .5 meters. The 40kg test 3-Way Rig is available early on for free by completing the Congo River Catfish Trial. Otherwise, you will need to wait till you are level 77 to purchase the 40kg test 3-Way with with 450 in cash. There are 3 different types of rigs. The Carolina, The Texas, and The 3-Way. I will be demonstrating the 3-Way in this video. I'll put together clips catching Unique Perch with the Carolina, Texas and 3-Way in my next video using a more advanced spinning set-up and show you how to balance the different rig assemblies to achieve perfect presentation. Once you attach your 3-way rig to the leader, you need to balance this set-up with 2x 56 gram drop sinkers. The sinkers come in packages of two. Use both sinkers because Fishing Planet is using Jedi math. Any other weight combination will throw off the action of the 3-Way Rig. Too little weight and the rig will tend to float more than drag the bottom and kick up silt. Too much dead weight, and you will have problems getting the lure to leap. Use a #11/0 or higher offset hook. Use a 15 cm shad as soft bait. The glow shad works both day and night in the Congo but works best at night. Ribbed Blue is best during the day Ribbed Pink during the evening and Glow Shad at night. Think of the 3-Way presentation as having a similar walking action on the floor of the river, as does a walker on the surface of the river. The 3-Way scampers across the bottom of the river bed kicking-up silt and disturbing bottom predators in the process. Meanwhile, the softbait bounces up over the silt to entice predators into attacking that tasty pop of colorful bait. This mimics the scampering of panicking decapods. Let's motor on over to the southern fishing buoy. There are 2 perch schools in casting distance of the buoy. I'm anchored over school 2 and will be casting about 40 meters out toward school 1 which swim around the area between those 2 markers in the distance. You can do rigging unanchored to cut down on some reeling time but repositioning the boat can get tedious. Also, the kinetic energy of reeling and river current, tends to make it a bit more difficult to control presentation as you drift away from the bouy. With rig fishing, you want to know if the river floor bottom is clear of debris that will snag the rig and also if there is bottom vegetation or silt. If the bottom has lots of vegetation, you want a more jerk intensive slither presentation. A Carolina or Texas rig is great for slithering through vegetation. If the river floor is mostly silty, which this area of the Congo is, you want to use wider full sweep and side sweep presentations. I prefer 3-Way rigs for silty presentations because the design mechanics of the 3-Way causes more silt disturbance while sweeping. The silt disturbance tells lurking predators that a stampede of yummy critters is in the area. I'm using a bottom rod to scan the surface of the river floor where the perch swim. The floor in this part of the Congo river is silty with no vegetation. There are bumps and small dents along the floor to help bounce the softbait up and down. The depth of the water is about 9 meters. Always do this simple check by using a bottom or carp rod whenever fishing an area you are not familiar with. This simple test helps you triangulate spodding distance versus bottom rod distance if you are catfishing or carping. It also helps you adjust match rod leader length. But more importantly, It helps you decide what kind of fishing method and retrieval to use when lure fishing. According to the bottom rod scan, depth is 9 meters near the markers. If you check the sonar display near your feet, the depth is at 7 meters. This means that you will have a little bit of resistance dragging the rig toward you as the river current rushes toward the water fall ahead. You will need to weight your rig according to the weight load of your rod versus water depth, and strength of the current. For the Tropicana 220 casting rod versus Congo river dynamics, 2x 56 gram drop sinkers have just the right balance to keep the rig on the bottom kicking-up silt while the lure bounces. Anything lighter will cause the whole assembly to have too much lift. Anything heavier will turn assembly into dead weight. It takes a little bit of experimentation to properly weight your rig assembly for perfect presentation under different conditions and rods. Perfect presentation, aside from my detailed dissertation in rig dynamics means that the fishing AI generates a fish that will continue to follow the lure and strike at it multiple times up to and even under your boat. This is phenomenal as rig fishing defeats the 12-13 meter distance nerf where the fishing AI will either send a bolt command to a following fish or a cease generating a fish command when the assembly is close to the angler. Perfect rig presentation also means that the first fish will often be the leader of the school, a unique that matches the range size of your offset hook and range size of your softbait and color in relation to time and environmental conditions. While I did choose a #11/0 offset hook because this is the largest offset hook a fresh level 75 visitor to the Congo can obtain, I have fun science motives for the #11/0 offset. However, the reason I have come to absolutely love perch fishing in the Congo is NOT to catch the biggest unique. I want a particular trophy and unique range size to for rocket science reasons! You'll have to watch the video to see it to believe it. But, if leaderboarding the Congo is your thing, go ahead and use larger hooks. Happiness is combining both rocketry with fishing dynamics. Play Fishing Planet the way that makes you happiest. Sometimes it's all about the science. Sometimes it's all about variety and exploration. Sometimes it's about hamming the leaderboards. Sometimes it's about competing with each other. Sometimes it's about free styling what floats your boat the most. Enjoy the video.

  18. As I said, for christ's sake, get closer to the community ASAP. You had hundreds of ways to let us all know that at least you were aware of what was happening and it took almost 20 hours for a statement about it. You had all the partners/streamers you could communicate, discord channels, facebook pages/groups, but it seemed that FP team simply vanished from the earth. I beg you one more time, please, get closer to the community (THE WHOLE community, not just your friends/old players). We love the game and are willing to help!

  19. Hi, unfortunately I couldn't play the WBT Q3, after several training sessions with my friends, due to the game's failure. I would like to be compensated in some way, I would rather be offered the baits mentioned in the prizes and 500 coins, X-Series Twin Tail Spider Grub 7cm X-Series Worm 15cm X-Series Duo Swimbait 56g, #4/0 X-Series Triple Runner 6m, #4/0 I think it would be a good way to compensate players who were unfortunate enough not to participate in the competition. I hope you understand my suggestion and take into account that I have already invested some money in Fishing Planet and I may invest more, so that it becomes better. I play a game that I like a lot, and I have a lot of fun with my friends. Thanks

  23. @Yuccasu, What are you hoping to get out of this event? I'm after the ridiculous hats and baitcoins. Baitcoins is good to target because you can also purchase clovercoins and a variety of other more valuable stuff. Baitcoins are a far more valuable commodity than targeting the event boat at your level. I do think some of this event is meant to coerce lower levels into buying the event pack to get pond access, licenses and the stringer. You are able to use other baits and lures to catch event fish. Non event fish baits and lures have a wider target range of fish so targeting event fish may take longer. One of my Italian carp friends uses spod and a variety of baits to eliminate local fish in order to catch event fish. The Irish Crayfish softbait paired off with the an X-Series Spinnerbait catches all of the event fish.

  29. Hello to all. This forum is practically in agony. I would like to revive it, I will try to do it by putting a "column" on competitions, from the general plan and the mindset to keep in individual competitions. Before I start to devote some of my time to this project I would like to have some feedback to encourage me to do so. If anyone is interested leave a comment and I'll start posting my personal guides on "how to win a competition"

  30. Hallo liebe deutsche Community, ich fasse mich kurz: Lasst uns den Entwicklern zeigen, dass auch wir verdient haben, ein Boot mit Rutenhaltern zu bekommen, ohne ein DLC kaufen zu müssen. Kommentiert diesen Beitrag wieso DU denkst, dass wir auch ein Boot mit einem Rutenhalter verdient haben! Vergisst nicht diesen Beitrag ein zu geben, damit dieser Beitrag auffällt! Dies soll kein "Hate" Beitrag gegen DLC Spieler sein! Jeder kann kaufen was er mag, jedoch ist es sehr Unfair, meiner Meinung nach, dass "Free to Play" - Spieler einfach überhaupt kein Boot mit diesem Feature erhalten! So wird die Community gespalten und ich finde dies ist Diskriminierung gegenüber Spieler, welche z.B. kein Echt-Geld für das Spiel ausgeben wollen/dürfen/können...

  32. When the trophy blackfish was the rarest fish in the game, Del is the only one I know to have caught it on purpose, meaning he caught it on the suggested insect baits, and he did it on two different platforms. Del was a true student of this game, a very meticulous fisherman, and a great friend to those of us lucky enough to have known him. I will miss our conversations and hope to meet up with you one day at that big lake in the sky, I'm sure you'll already have all the best spots sorted out. Rest in peace my brother.

  33. I think this was in the forums before. Somewhere. Can't find it. Would be great to have an option to turn down the rodpod beeps separately. I think it's linked to the ambient sounds. And while I love to hear the wildlife around me while fishing, the rodpod beeping gets unbelievably annoying

  39. I don’t know about you guys, but when I clicked on apply to the Tournament. I clicked it KNOWING (bad rng or not lol) I was In it to WIN IT! Therefore, that being said… I would like the 5k Baitcoins. I’ll be nice and you can keep the hat, lures, and currency. But instead an all expenses trip to the Maldives on a Private Jet with a pimped out golf-cart waiting on me when I land for a week Thanks KW lol Those who put time into trying to figure out Q3. I don’t know what to say but sorry and also know your not the only one this happened to. It happened to hundreds literally. Tourney can be restarted in all fairness in a week or 2. Maybe? If not, it is what it is and there will be another eventually. We even had 1 dude with 3 accounts take up 3 of the 20 spots in Q1 on steam. It’s been a mess from the very start. If it continues, don’t forget the asterisks on board lol But remember everyone, It’s only a game. There will be another soon. We just need to stay patient and keep the X-series tissues for another rainy perch day, there is more than the game they are worried about right now out that way. Mobile is outstanding if you guys haven’t heard, check it out in the app store! Coupon Code: KrellicOG for increased RNG. J/K It’s FREE and it is pretty good!!

  40. I wanted to demonstrate how to arm and deploy Mudwater's special X-Series Spinner for maximum effectiveness on Mudwater since the op asked earlier in the year. I wasn't around to answer stuff then because of connection issues earlier in the year. I'm sorry. This is for beginners who still want to learn how to get the Mudwater special spinner bait and learn how to use it with dead on accuracy. ----- PHCarpman99 is correct. The fish the spinnerbait was targeting was too small and clumsy. However, there is a way around this for level 15+ beginners who still want to learn how to use a spinnerbait from a level 4 waterway with dead on accuracy. The reason this works for level 15+ beginners is because the line needed is level 15. The rod is level 8, 7 levels before the rod. The game can be brutal in this regards to beginners. Going into Mudwater or Falcon Lake with a less than level 15 set-up will wreck the rod and reel. PRO BEGINNER TIP Always wait until your level is high enough to buy the line and lures before getting the rod. The problem with frilly lures with bass skirts, both ir and ingame, is that they have more mass to swallow in relation to their hook size. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. Good in trying to generate bigger fish; bad when targeting fish with smaller mouths. Fish like bass use the quick strike mechanism which seems to have various degrees of accuracy in predator fish. In quick strike, fish don't nibble. They attempt to swallow something whole! They either hit the target, miss, or partially hit it. In order, to trigger dead on accuracy in quick strike, you want the lure to ding as many sensory stimuli as possible. Predator fish have keen eyesight but need movement and extra stimuli to trigger BOTH quick strike AND accuracy. The X-Series Spinnerbait #2/0 is available as the Mudwater Explorer III 30 day achievement reward. It adds visual stimulation with 1) color, 2) flash, 3) water vibration and 4) X-series mojo. Add a softbait to the spinnerbait like this: To stimulate feeding interest with added 5) more color and 6) native fish bait shape. Set time to 7) peak fishing: In this type of weather, there is 6 game hours of lovely fishing (1 hour 30 minute ir) Add sweep retrieval and long casting distance to cover more space, 9) more water vibration and 10) alot more flash action and boom, you created dead accuracy which not only attracts fish but gets them to quick strike with dead on accuracy even if their mouths maybe a little smaller. I probably have overkill with my dead on accuracy set-up and retrieval, but try to ding as much stim points as possible to get lots of primo action on the water. This following video is a little shaky because of lag reasons. But the lure execution was still dead on accurate even with lag caused by 2 very popular events running simultaneously. I'll do some beginner speed runs after all the events are over on Mudwater and Falcon Lake with the same set-up.

  42. Hey anglers! How do you feel after the hard week of fishing with Elusive Arapaima? Do not relax, new fishing battles are waiting for you this week!! This week's monster is Wailing Catfish! Research has shown that a huge Wailing Catfish has taken up residence in the Marron River. Help the ichthyologists to create the Speaker Sinker to attract this monster. Follow the sounds traveling across the water in the evening to find the Catfish’s habitat.

  43. Great tutorial and video Musette. Over the years I've development and tested many retrieve techniques. From all the different Sweeping Techiniques you described, the 3 Speed Burn and Turn, Shadow Casting Twitch, The Jerk & Lurk and many more lol. But I must say, that I have never given Rig Fishing much of a thought. In real life, I'm a Large Mouth Bass kinda guy, and use the Texas and Carolina Rigs guite often. I figured Rig Fishing was just a gimmick from Fishing Planet to entice peeps to spend money on such, and that it would have no effect on the overall fishing experience. But it looks as though I may have been mistaken lol. I intend to give this Rig Fishing my upmost attention over the next several days and combine it with a few of my own retrieve techniques. Once again, great tutorial.

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. Hi, I known a lot of player who stop competition or stop definitively fishing planet cause of the level on competitions is very high and sometimes can get frustrated , so perhaps FP can make make something to regroup best people . Like delete amator competition and create elite competition for all player more than 1500 or 2000 personal rank point . What you think about that ?

  49. June 12, 2021 Dear carp diary friends, Currently, I'm working on fine tuning flavor and color values to influence carp species roll order. I'm mostly a Stage 2 carper because I'm never satisfied with just one mix or method. I'll also fish through the entire mix with many fish hooks sizes and baits just to see what swims with my target fish. It's a great way to complete area missions while farming game cash and exp. Find a spot and devote a couple of rods for your target fish and a couple of rods to explore what else is attracted to your groundbait. The fish will sort themselves out by hook size and hookbait. Groundbait encourages chunkier fish and school retention. TF and FP carping fall into 3 categories: Stage 1) Amateur (fishing with no groundbait or limitted knowledge of groundbait mixing) Stage 2) Uni farming (fishing with a stable high particle feeder mix and sometimes with Couch Potato spodding) Stage 3) Moby hunting (fishing with a spiked high particle mix and pond jumping) Amateur Carping Until you have unlocked all carping ingredients at level 50, targeting unique carp is limited to predatory carp. You may be able to snag a common uni once in a great while in California. Your best bet for targeting high value carp before level 50 is in Germany for trophy common, grass, mirror and leather carp along with trophy bighead and silver carp. However, without level 50+ match rod tackle, Germany's uni bighead and silver carp are likely to break your line, rod or reel. My earliest diary entries are my amateur level Weeping Willows tests when I was level 50-something. I pretty much violated established methods with fusion mixing. I felt like an 8 year old child gleefully playing mad scientist with a brand new chemistry set. I mixed everything then carefully subtracted components for a more stable chemical reaction. Try mixing your own flavors to produce surprising results and kabooms! Uni Carping When you are ready to graduate to steady uni carp farming, you can try one of the many carping mixes found in my carp diary. (Sorry, I don't stream Youtube or Twitch because I am too embarrassed to cuss on a live stream. My friends think I'm too cute when I cuss in my anime girl accent. Fishing live when your connection is bad produces lots of multi-lingual cussing.) My first steady feeder mix is from my Sunny, Tropical Fruit Test dated October 26, 2020. This mix still catches oversized carp in both sunny and cloudy weather with minor aroma adjustments. This is where I learned how to control carp size with high particle concentrations (particle totals of 14%-15% and balanced aroma based on temperature and carp species isolation). I also learned from that French test round that sunny weather, round shapes, infrared colors and bait size plays a more dominant factor over aroma since tropical fruits and nuts produce no aroma. Tropical fruits are encased in shells or tough skin. This also means that boilies are a superior hookbait to pellets because of shape. A basic uni feeder farming mix that works for both TF and FP can be found here. This mix gives instructions on how to combine and subtract components based on weather and temperature. I usually make about 1k baitcoins on TF or 120k+ cash on FP with temperature variants of this mix. Moby Hunting Moby hunting is extreme uni carping. When you have more than enough baitcoins or game cash, you don't bother landing anything less than 36 kg or 80 lbs. You constantly bounce around waterways chasing known moby placeholder positions. No couch potato spodding needed with all that bouncing! You focus only on peak game hour periods and push your heaviest bottom and carp tackle with a high particle, lower value aroma feeder mix. Size #10/0 hooks for TF and #14/0 for FP. Large spikes in weight becomes more important than a steady stream of average sized unis. Veteran carpers have their own feeder mix variants that loosely adhere to my uni carp formulae from October 2020 and May 2021. The exact recipe to hit moby carp caps exists only in experience at any given time of day because light wavelength, temperature, and weather influences optimal groundbait values during peak hours. TF moby carping is confined to match rod tackle in Germany and carp rod tackle in UK. TF is about a year behind FP, so no South American fruits in TF to make bottom rod carping worthwhile. FP moby carping currently favors bottom rod tackle with South American fruits in UK, and match rod tackle in Germany. Thus far, the largest Germany bighead carp spikes in both TF and FP occurred with a #10/0 hook and Technoplankton + UK carp feeder mix at peak times night, day, ANY WEATHER. (Thank you to anglers who sent me their moby bighead markers). Bighead and silver carp travel as a college (mixed schools) with other species of carp. Therefore, you indirectly increase the size of uni bigheads and silvers through what I call an ENTOURAGE effect. Using a carp rod and size 8/0 hook and 20mm boilie, your feeder mix should be able to isolate trophy only browns, commons and grass carp in the 17-21 kg range. If your mix is catching smaller carp, your feeder mix needs adjustment. Now your spodding area is ready to generate mostly supersized moby bigheads and silvers during top peak hours. In Germany, I'm using method mix spodding to get the uni bigheads and silvers to take larger hook sizes past 7/0. The highest hook size I've gotten bites out of is 12/0 on FP. The most 30kg+ bigheads and silvers in a single day is 7 on TF during sunny weather template with size 8/0 hooks. The current size caps for carp in TF remain at 40 kg bighead and 45 kg mirror. The size cap for for carp in FP should mathematically be closer to 110 lbs/50 kg in both Germany and UK unless there is overlord dev intervention. Current carp rods are under powered to handle 50 kg carp load within a reasonable time unless you deploy terrain tactics like bracing your rod against a tree, bridge or platform. South American bottom rods with South American fruit and hook size 14/0 have replaced traditional boilies carping. The species descriptions on both TF and FP are old school 50/51 level values. The old school descriptions did not take into account an increase in FP player level and hooksize. Player level and hook size most definitely affect moby size caps! Conclusion Carping is more intellectually stimulating than other forms of fishing using the Fishing Planet game engine because of the many different factors and nuances in weather, temperature, lighting, carp species habit, et al, when designing carp groundbait and hookbait configurations. Carping is complicated and may not be for everyone.

  50. Indeed, it should also be mentioned that eel will also take baits like cheese, small minnows (probably shiners too), small and medium cutbait, crawfish cut and shrimp for those who can't access the the large cutbait yet. Not as effective but better than nothing.
