  1. Hi Dipper, I do not think there is a PS5 only version of the game maybe you can just play the game on console including PS5 and yes the game is a bit clunky but still plenty of fun tight lines
  2. maybe try to fish for the monster at white moose with more than one rod and try to hook two monsters or more at the same time. I think then you may be able to catch several that you have hooked at the same time. I am not sure the game will spawn anymore once you have completed the mission but you will still be able catch/land the other monsters you have already hooked and get good xp good luck
  3. I understand you can fish for monster fish using several rods and therefore it is possible to catch more than one of some of the monsters, but you may have to hook them before reeling one in but I am not sure on that last point - I have not done it myself. If you have not caught the white moose lake monster yet maybe give that one a go or one of the others and let us know how you get on. tight lines
  4. I had a look at my stats after my last post and I did manage a uni bream at weeping willow on blood worms - i guess take a good assortment of likely baits and give them all a go. good luck
  5. I had some luck with bream in a few spots at weeping willow. Maybe try this spot if you haven't already tried it: go to golden lake and walk quite a way up the left hand side and there is a large tree tree on the bank on a small promontory and just out from the tree quite close to the bank are two small but deep holes quite close together - you can see and mark them on the lake depth/contour map. I got quite a few bream in there. I may have got a trophy there certainly plenty of bream though - try night fishing at good times for them if you haven't already. I used ground bait probably best wit
  6. you may already be aware of this - the kayak is great for doing the sleigh missions if you do not anchor when you fish and also it allows you to fish with relatively light gear and still catch big fish eg muskies on St Croix or some of the monster missions and get good XP. If you were not aware of this I hope it helps you
  7. I agree St Croix and San Joaquin are better for grinding than Emerald and whilst I had to return to Emerald quite a few times to grind/unlock St Croix I think once you have done it you will probably not go back to Emerald except maybe just to complete a mission. I found St Croix really good fun and I will definitely return there to stalk the monster muskie but I doubt I will buy an unlimited licence - I can always cover my costs as a free to play player there. I think if I was going to buy an unlimited licence I may wait possibly to unlock Weeping Willow although I can cover my costs th
  8. I also experienced this problem when trying to buy some groundbait a couple of days ago. The bait screen did not load and I must have got impatient and pressed the X button on my console once whilst I was waiting for it to load. When the screen loaded I found I had purchased the first groundbait that the screen goes to once it loads. In this case I think it was crimson gold the pack you have to buy for bait coins as that is the first one listed. I was a bit put out but I ignored it. I guess I will definitely remember to let the page load before I try to make a selection in future. I agree
  9. I agree if you just use the dock and the beach it is a bit limited, but around this time you may have have unlocked a kayak. If so consider getting one as it opens up a lot more possibilities and if I remember there are some other beaches that are only accessible by boat/kayak. There is also a little stream at the end at the rhs I think.
  10. When I used to fish there I used night/glow shads (at night), blue worms and my goto for walleye was an amber grub - lots of others work as well. Cast straight out from the dock but you need to get out into the deeper water towards the back of the lake. During the day the walleye mainly sit on the bottom but at night they tend to move around a bit more and may move into the shallows particularly along the reeds to the right from the dock. I usually just cast out from the dock towards the hole in the trees at the other end of the lake into the deeper water and let it sink right to the bott
  11. Just a few thoughts. When I lure fish I often keep the rod in the strike position ie on PS4 i hold down L2 (the left trigger) as I reel in and this will often help you set the hook even on finicky bites. I use it a lot when I lure fish - I guess I am sort of lazy but it does help I think there is a similar method for float/bobber fishing where you do the same thing ie keep the rod in the strike position with the line fairly tight to the bobber. I think it has been called the "quick strike". I haven't really used it yet when i bobber fish but I understand it can be quite effective
  12. This is a bit off track but I thought i would just mention that when I first started grinding out pike at St Croix I was using a lure with a rod and reel that was a bit too light and after catching quite a few fish over several days my gear began to get worn - fairly worn but not completely maybe the reel was around 60% i had used the drag a lot as nearly every fish took line from my light setup. Then I hooked a muskie (of course) the fish gave me the run around big time but I kept fighting giving and taking line throughout the course of the tussle. Then after a while my drag gave out - the re
  13. Hi Mitchell, I know it sort of goes without saying but it is worth rechecking everything - i expect you have done all this already, but maybe check you have: the mission tracked, and all prerequisites to catch the fish have been complied with ie you just have to catch the fish left in the tracked mission notification. Then, use a fairly small hook eg 1# or 2# as the fish has a fairly small mouth and won't get the hook in it's mouth otherwise. Then fish at peak times, close to the bottom out near the middle of the lake. It took me a while and I had to mark the deeper areas in the middle of
  14. yes maybe try the bread with honey as well. There is a long deep stretch at the top of the lake perhaps try there for the buffalo - best at the top right hand end of the deep hole if I remember correctly. If you have some cutbait you could try there for the cats too Also you could try a bottom rod and feeder if you have one if not a float should do the trick especially now you can use a light slider or waggler float to fish down deep (if these are available to you). You can also feed by hand when you float fish but I have found it disappointingly inaccurate I think the slider float
  15. I was wondering when ground bait expires does that relate to just the left over ground bait? Or, does it also include the ground bait that you have just fed/spodded into the water? I ask this as my swim went surprising quiet the other day/session after the ground bait expired notification popped up even though I had just put some ground bait in! Any thoughts welcome and may I thank you in anticipation.
