  1. I agree with Carpman99. Fortunately, I still have my Golem lure, but I have lost a few X-Series lures to Gar and Muskie. I now use titanium leader anytime I fish for these guys. It doesn't happen all of the time, but often enough. Better safe than sorry.
  2. I thought I would follow up, if anybody cares. This is my final update. I created a spreadsheet that list every waterway in The Fisherman, including Blue Crab Island and Creuse River. For each waterway, I used the in game map to list all of the different species, and different sizes (young, common, trophy, unique) of each fish. Additionally, I added all of the monster fish, and the event fish from Halloween and Christmas. I soon realized that the monster fish and event fish do NOT count toward this challenge. I went to each waterway, caught each species and size, and marked them off on my sheet. I know that catching each species at each waterway was overkill, but didn't want to leave any stone unturned. When all was said and done, I ended up with 351/375 fish. Again, I want to emphasize that I caught every size of every species at every waterway. Conclusion? This challenge cannot be complete in the current state of the game. About a week ago, i fire up Fishing Planet and was not surprised to see that this challenge was removed from the game.
  3. Any update on a release date for the Christmas event?
  4. I finally caught the unique Sauger at Emerald Lake. The first night of fishing, I caught it with the green 3/0 halo narrow spoon on the third cast. Regarding the Trophy Rainbow trout at Falcon Lake, still no sign of it. Lot's of young, common, and unique, but no trophy or "Lake Form".
  5. I play The Fisherman also. My experience is similar, 1. Rocky Lake - I have caught Trophy Rainbow Trout and a Rainbow Trout (Lakeform) 2. Falcon Lake - No sign of either the Trophy Rainbow or the Lakeform Rainbow. There is a video posted by Jim Cooper on 11/9/2019 titled: "The Fisherman Fishing Planet Trophy and Unique Rainbow Trout Falcon Lake Colorado". This is Falcon Lake, Oregon and he is playing The Fisherman. He spawned at Trout Lair. At 4:58 of the video, he lands a 1.544 kg Trophy Rainbow Trout. At 11:28 in the video, he shows his keepnet where he has 6 Trophy Rainbow Trout
  6. Thanks Carpman. I'll look up the forum you mentioned. Regarding the Uni Sauger, I'll keep trying. I have used the 2/0 and 3/0 halo spoon in both red and green, along with green, black, purple (with 1/0 hooks), medium spoons, jigs, and a couple of casting spoons. I have also caught trophies using leeches and minnows on bottom rods and float. I have caught common and trophies on all of those lures and baits. Perhaps one day.
  7. So I decided to look into this again. What's the worse that could happen? I get to catch a bunch of fish? Anyway, I decided to go back and catch every fish species and size (young, common, trophy, unique) from each waterway. I created a spreadsheet that lists all fish species and sizes (young, common, trophy, unique) for each waterway. I used the in-game Fish Species section of the waterway to identify each specie and size. I fish each waterway, in the order they are unlocked. My intent is to catch each species and size, then move to the next waterway. I have started with Lonestar and progressed to Tiber. It seems that some fish/sizes may not be available at all waterways, as listed. For example: 1. Emerald Lake - Unique Sauger: I have spent more than 15 real hours fishing for the unique sauger. During this time, I have caught more than 20 trophies, and 100 common sauger. Not a single Unique. 2. Falcon Lake - Trophy Rainbow Trout: over 15 hours of real time fishing for this fish. I have caught every young, common and trophy fish in this lake, with the exception of the trophy rainbow. During this time, I have caught over 10 unique rainbows, but not a single trophy rainbow. As a matter of fact, In the last 2 weeks, I haven't even seen a unique sauger posted for Emerald lake, or a Trophy Rainbow Trout posted at Falcon. This might just be an issue with The Fisherman, and not with Fishing planet. Or, this might be good ol' fashion RNG, but I doubt it.
  8. I think your right. For some reason, I had 11/5 in mind. I think it is today thought.
  9. Thanks guys. I have 2 more days to find one. All I need is the Spider spoon and catch 6 ghost pike, then on to the Frankenfish. Money for travel and license is the biggest problem I have now. Do I need a San Joaquín license to catch the Frankenfish? Fortunately for me, Lonestar lake has been a hotspot for me when it comes to catching Ghost pike.
  10. I still cannot get the Spider spoon. What is the best location to find it?
  11. Thanks kdog. I was able to get the Roach spoon and Silicon spider last night, after traveling to about half the waterways. I didn't have enough money to travel to White Moose, San Juaquin, Saint Croix, or Falcon. Hopefully, I will get the Spider spoon tonight.
  12. I finally got enough rotten minnows to to complete the Black Vampire Fin mission. During the process, I earned enough cash to buy a heavier bottom rod setup (47lbs). I am currently in the process of completing the mission using both rods. Still no luck in getting the Roach spoon, Spider spoon, or silicon spider to complete the ghost essence mission.
  13. I was playing last night and noticed a change around 9:00 PM CDT. I was at Emerald Lake fishing for Ghost Pike, and noticed that the 2 pumpkins were lit up. That may not seem strange, but I had already claimed the prizes just 1 hour earlier. When I checked the pumpkin on the island, I was astounded to see a tombstone there. Until tonight, only Fishing Planet had tombstones. I travelled to a few other waterways and they too had tombstones, located in the same places as Fishing Planet. Before you get too excited, it appears that these pumpkins will not be active until October 30th. As I approach the pumpkins, the message reads something like this: "Wait until October 30th-November 5th to claim your prize"
  14. kdog - I really appreciate the time, effort, and expense you put into helping me out. Hopefully, others will take the time to read this post and gain as much knowledge as I have. My Brutus setup is very similar to your, so this is a great comparison. I spent a couple of hours last night playing. I made the rounds on a few lower level lakes, and got another 5 rotten minnows. No luck on the needed lures though. I went to Quanchkin with my Brutus and 10 rotten minnows. I ended up catching 2 vampires, 6 alligator gar, 1 trophy white bass?, and had 1 bitten off. 85lb gar are certainly a struggle to land, but it can be done. I'm disappointed that I got so many alligator gar on the event bait. At this point, I concede to this event. I doubt I will be able to get my hands on enough rotten minnows to complete this mission, or the rest of the lures required to complete the ghost essence mission. That's ok though. I I will have leveled up high enough, and saved enough in-game cash, to compete in the next event.
  15. Thanks kdog. These are the Halloween missions that I have been able to complete so far: Get the Book Bunch of Mandrake Roots Bluegill Skeleton Tail Green Ogre Scale Albino Yeti Gills (60lb fish on 30lb gear was painful Kayaking missions at Emerald and Falcon Ghost Essence with Blade Spinner, Slimy Crank, and Bony Shad I could complete the Ghost Essence mission, but I still haven't found the Silicon Spider, Spider Spoon, or Roach Spoon. Additionally, I only have 5 rotten minnows, so I can't complete Black Vampire Fin mission. As far as the remaining kayaking missions go, I think I will be hard pressed to find all the needed items to complete those missions. But, you never know. I do have a Brutus match rod, which I have been using. It's my understanding that the black vampire gar can reach 80-90lbs, which would be a real challenge. I played a few more hours yesterday, and decided to gamble, and invest $65,000 in a new keepnet (330/110lbs). I still had a few hours left on my St. Croix license, so I fished there until my license expired. I completed 2 in-game fishing days, and was able to earn back around $25,000, which helps. I should be able to get to level 42 tonight. If I can earn another $35,000 I can buy a 47lb bottom rod, and a 41lb reel. That might help with the vampire gar.
