  1. Hi, anglers! Many of you probably have been wondering what’s coming next in Fishing Planet. We are happy to tell you what we have been working on since the release of Marron River in Bolivia. Right now we are finalizing a new waterway - the maze of islands and canals of Amazonian Maze in Brazil, which we plan to release in 3-4 weeks. A curious maze of islands, canals and bays has found its place a couple of hundreds kilometres from where the Rio Negro joins the Amazon. Tiny pockets of civilization spring out here and there among the impenetrable equatorial rainforests: Indian v

  2. After dominating so many years now, this statement says a lot. I was thinking about changing my ID to "VFF_xxxxx" just to see if it would help catch more Pike in qualifier 2... It pains me to say this, but I just have to be honest. Lots of fishing games have come out in the past couple years and haven't had the success that Fishing Planet has had. There's almost a cult following and it's because the game was FUN above all, and competitive. I think the FP team or whoever owns the company have done a good job creating that experience like no other. Here is the truth as I see it: F

  3. Hi, anglers! Many of you are interested in what we will release next. Get ready to visit South America and experience a new fishing destination - the wild Maku-Maku Lake in the north-east of Peru. The wild Maku-Maku Lake is located in the north-east of Peru, upstream the Amazon basin and in between the Marañón and the Ucayali Rivers, which come together to form the Amazon River. This lake is a forgotten treasure of the immense and impassable Amazonian equatorial rainforest. Nothing even resembling industrial activity can be found within miles of the lake, with no signs of urban

I just wanna let u know FP Team, we have the same issue if not more on PS4, buffering window, lag, 2seconds freezing, blue screen error,etc it looks like FP has a Fishing Game only on steam! you know what FP team! this is just great proof you do not apply the same meter!

  8. I think in most cases it is. But sometimes it's half that. On that topic, dear devs, it would be amazingly helpful if we could have all the available gear and it's specs in a readily available web page, it can't be that hard.

  9. 11/19/2020 Dear Carp Diary, My internet is being sus again. I wanted to do a Germany carp creel to show how lucrative carp fishing is in the area, but alas...so much disconnect and groundbait loss. Before setting out to fish bighead and silver carps, I wanted to observe their migration habit. I tracked carp migration on my bass boat sonar system just outside the connecting bridges where I normally fish bighead and silver carp. Roughly, the bighead and silver carp appear to run in 2 small schools every 5-6 minutes during prime fishing time. The large trophy/unique blips run by wi

  10. Jim and Carpman, thanks for making me laugh I did finally finish the Halloween event and am now doing all the side challenges associated with the event for more baitcoins. Been collecting baitcoins from the tombstones and pumpkins too. Still in it for the baitcoins.

  13. 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 hou

  14. This may be a little much but i think there should be real ocean fishing i know blue crab is the best we have right now but i think we should have the ability to catch amberjack, grouper,jacks,sharks,etc this would be a good step for the game and middle consone boats such as.. this might be a bit much but i think this game would pop if we had this and the ability to deep sea fish.

  15. I read today on the steam forums about a feature that snuck its way into FP. Spooking fish if you get too close. Was this also included in the update we got today for PS4? In the post, Killerwhale said that it would be fixed tomorrow. Does that include PS4 also?

  17. Пользовательские соревнования уже заняли достаточно хорошую нишу в игре. Пора продолжать дальше развивать их. На данный момент в них есть 2 режима: обычный и расширенный. Игроки создают множество соревнований, но все они однотипные... Командные могут быть только 3-х типов (Суммарный вес / суммарная длина / суммарное кол-во), с индивидуальными ситуация обстоит лучше, но они тоже сильно ограничены по выбору типов. Как можно разнообразить соревнования, сделав их более интересными, и, тем самым, привлечь к ним большее кол-во игроков: Для индивидуальных соревнований: Добавить возможнос

  21. Suggest you do not sell your old tackle until your happy with your new tackle (in the future), don't know your level so don't know what you have access to. Log in 4 days in a row to get $3000 credits, buy the cheapest spinning rod available - Valuespin 190 level 3 $1250, add a level 3 or 4 spinning reel (MiniSpin 1200 (lvl 3 $650) or InspireCast 2000 (lvl 4 $850)), get level 3 or 4 Mono line ($180 - $260), get some Narrow Spoons 1/0 (lvl 5 $210), buy a 1 day Advanced Texas licence ($200). Total : $2490 - $2690. Go catch some Bass at Texas until you can afford to buy stronger (better) ge

  23. Well.....They succeeded in making my wallet lighter by 99 bitcoins, just for the one lure I needed that they refused to make available in the loot drops. I wanted to put this event behind me, and move on to other things finished the last 3 missions, and done with this event. I suspect they will pull another fast one....for the Christmas event....if enough of us shelled out 99 coins for the Halloween lure pack

  24. 10/08/2020 Dear Carp Diary, I've been recovering slowly. Was at the hospital off and on this past month. Finally well enough to collate some data. Someone asked me to share one of my hybrid Spod and PVA combos which generates alot of carp uniques. I wasn't pulling-up Moby Carp (Jim Kaf's endearing term for monster carp), just 8-10 unis in a 30 minute IRL period. But the formula can be modified to pull-up the mobys everyone seems craves. I don't enjoy fishing mobys because they take longer to reel. This means I may lose 2-3 unis with 4 active rods. I prefer a slower recipe so t

  27. 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 ga

  28. 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 accuse

  29. I have to agree with @TheGreedySheep on this one. Taking into account how many combinations there are for chums, its out ouf balance if only very limited choices ( only 1 recipe I'm aware right now) provide you these "oversized" fishes. Right now this "miracle" recipe (maybe there are more than I know of) is not really very logical. So it feels like entering a cheat code in some other games. I fished and wrote down on paper more than 200 uniques in Weeping Willow. None of them were "oversized". Then I started to experiment with different mixtures and the most logical ones, you would use there

  30. Dear Carp Diary, 9/11/2020: I was in Weeping Willow UK today for a competition which was in off-seasonal warm water. I had too much left over warm water feed and spod chum, so I decided to test warm stuff under cool conditions. Here are the results of my little test because I did not want to waste my leftover warm weather competition chum and feeders on 9/11/2020: While I managed to net 8 unis in one spot in the same game day, it was not fun. The first 2 game hours I wanted to give up. Just a few young and regular bites. I still had a lot of feeder and spod that was going to

  31. I had a weird weather shift mid morning from cloudy to sunny. This netted me an extra set of peak fishing time and extra 3 Unis. Every day at the same time there is a "system clock reset", the weather forecast is forwarded to the next day and challenges requiring things like catching a certain amount of fish in a day are reset. It can be very useful to note when this change occurs for you, so you don't accidently forward to a peak time and suddenly find yourself in a snooze zone and stuck with the cool down timer, or getting that sneaky extended run of peak time .

  32. 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 a

  33. Please re-evaluate your leveling system ! its getting out of control at this point !!!!!!! Its not a great feeling for the newer players to get this game and find out once they hit 40 its going to come to a screeching halt , oh...and your going to have to fish the same 3 or 4 species of fish nonstop for the next couple months !

  34. This nerf has also eliminated the trolling option apparently. If you pass over a spawn point now it gets turned off and fish will not bite even when your lure is 150 feet behind the boat. It was working pretty well to locate spawn points while exploring before the update, but now after 2 in game hours cruising an entire shoreline in one direction you catch zero Arapaima. Turning around and spending another 2 game hours cruising the same shoreline in the opposite direction had the same result, with the exception of the occasional 2 pound croaker or piranha.

  35. Yes, this nerf is on PS4 as well. And boat fishing is officially pointless now. In Maku Maku we used to catch Arapaima from 8-10m. My friend tried it yesterday and there you can't catch even young and common ones from close range anymore. He spent 2h real life time and got only 1 common (peak competition time/weather).

This indigenous freshwater inhabitant of the southern part of the USA, easily recognizable by its colorful body and aggressive behavior. The second one is Bigmouth Buffalo. One of the biggest species in the Catostomidae family, native North American freshwater fish, mostly known for its giant size and its long lifespan. Despite being mostly planktivorous species, it easily could be caught on sp

  39. I have one idea that has been on my mind lately. Maybe the devs could enhance the buoy/markers in game? How about the ability to color code the buoys or have the label of fish caught appear above the buoy? I want something to help me identify each buoy without going to the map. If anyone has other ideas maybe share here. Maybe leave ranting about how the game is 'broke' for another thread...

  40. Thank you for this. And thank you @Tapatalgud also! You both are awesome for even taking the time to write all that you both have. I took 135th on the second qualifier. Stayed in the same spot, using the same lure the entire time. I was 3.5lbs away from 1st. That’s crazy.. It was an absolute blast, because I caught fish non stop. Night and day from mudwater. Anyhow, thanks again. Sounds like I need a pad, pen, and lots of time... ...

  41. Dude, I just spent 50 dollars on this game 1 week ago and now I can't play because you can't figure your servers out.vi want a full refund, it's like all of your games are good but your staff sucks, get it together and quit taking our money if your system doesn't work right, money back please. And quit ignoring your paying customers, what kind of customer service do you think people want?

  42. I have never heard anyone complain about a Free game having updates . If they are adding new content or trying to fix bugs i say the more the better . Remember this game is FREE they have to patch in new DLC to generate income or the servers would go down . If they wanted they could shut it down and it would be gone so be thankful for what we get. Also if you put your PS4 on rest mode it is supposed to update automaticly

  43. I agree with what you are saying. If you have nothing in your tool box, you will have trouble with Alaska. This is unlike any lake because of the various techniques you have to learn. I had some help on this lake, and once you get the locations, techiques and times, can be very rewarding. Peak times are limited in many cases. So, I'm in Alaska now, just say Hi and let me know if I can help or you can help me. Stay safe.

  45. Thats what makes fishing planet so unique , being able to go to any lake and find ways to catch fish . Discover what works for you and perfecting it. With the new fish system and mechanics it seems that there are so many different ways to catch the same kinda fish. It makes fishing in different spots and times more profitable .

  48. 2018 I spent around 100 euros on this game. I bought some DLC and premium and just enjoyed the game. Then there were several updates that ruined the economics totally. And it has gotten worse and worse. With every release they announce we joke with my friend about what they could have broken this time. And it's sad because the game has so much potential. I have promised to myself that I will not spend a dime on this game anymore before some of the most annoying bugs are fixed (will list them later) and when developers come back to reality about their expectations how much gamers spend on this

Что бы хотелось улучшить в игре: - Добавить возможность передачи между игроками на локациях (порой забыл купить приманку, а друг тебе ее привез) - Сделать хранилище на озерах и реках, чтоб можно было оставлять что-то на реке или озере и когда приезжаешь использовать (позволит хранить определенные снасти на том или ином озере и при необходимости использовать их там) - Зимняя рыбалка (о ней мечтают многие, можно использовать те же озера только добавлять к ним вариант зимней рыбалки) - Портативные эхолоты для использования с берега (не на всех водоемах можно использовать лодки, а
