  1. I know there aren't many people who still play The Fisherman, and fewer people who use this forum to discuss/share information about this game. However, I still enjoy playing The Fisherman and would kind of like to revitalize this forum for those who still need help, or want to share experiences. To preface this topic, I play on the XBOX One Series X only. I understand experiences may be different if played on other platforms, especially Steam. Recently, I have reset my profile, in order to play the game from the beginning. I most enjoy playing this game when there is a goal, and progression. I like playing the missions and completing the challenges. As others have commented, any of the DLC (Blue Crab Island, Predator Boat Pack, and Trophy Catch Pack) that was purchased, is lost after you reset your profile. On the XBOX, I have yet to find a way to restore that lost DLC after a profile reset. If I want it, I will have to purchase it again. Does anyone else have knowledge or experience with this issue?
  2. I also reset my profile, in order to start over. The only thing I purchased was the Blue Crab Island DLC. After the reset, Blue Crab Island is locked, and none of the DLC items are available (boat, fishing rod/reel, lures, etc.). Seems like a shitty deal. You can reset your profile, but you lose everything you purchased.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Any update on a release date for the Christmas event?
  6. 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".
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I think your right. For some reason, I had 11/5 in mind. I think it is today thought.
  11. 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.
  12. I still cannot get the Spider spoon. What is the best location to find it?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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"
