  1. I have been bedridden for the past two plus weeks and as such I've fished as I could and felt up to it. I was fishing in Alberta. Although I never finished a complete in-game day, on my third day of trying to finish out the in-game day, I returned to find that Fishing Planet had reset my day, still on day one, but I lost almost 400 pounds of fish! I didn't realize the game did this as I've never had this issue before. The word frustrating doesn't begin to describe how I felt! And since the holiday update, if I have to go to my inventory while on the lake and in the boat, when I come back to the game, supposedly in the same place where I left, my boat is positioned at the dock again and I must find my spot again. I must love the game to continue to put up with these issues!
  2. Hi anglers! I haven't asked a dumb question in a while and thought you might be missing them. So here goes: First off, I finally reached Level 50!!! I am so excited and of course I had to have a bass boat. I loved boating when my health permitted but now it's all done on the PS4. I finally figured out the trolling motor which is great. However, here's the dumb part. How do you stop it? I landed a huge muskie the other night in Michigan and it pulled me from here to yonder. I was using the trolling motor and just had to let the fish drag away. I finally managed to pull it in but the only way I could drop anchor again was to put my rod up and then depress the triangle for the anchor to drop. Once dropped, I pulled the rod out again and kept fishing. What am I missing? Do I regulate the trolling movement with the throttle of the motor or is there an actual anchor drop for it? I don't troll per se but rather simply move the boat from area to area within the larger areas without starting the main engine. I've checked out YouTube but I didn't find anything so you guys are my next resource. Thanks in advance for any help you can give. PS: I have asked the developers to upgrade the boats and buoys with lights to enhance the reality of the game.

    I was asking my husband last night which side of the buoy should I be on and we noticed there were no lights on the buoys or the boats. How about considering adding the red and blue lights to both? It would really enhance the reality of the game.
  4. I was thinking of this just the other day. And I agree, a calendar would be great!
  5. FPdimsam, the first try I caught a trophy Largemouth Bass! Thanks!!!
  6. Thanks a bunch! I will try that later to tonight.
  7. Can / will anyone give me some tips on how to fish using the jerkbait? I have been using a stop and go with a retrieve speed of three but I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. I have seen / read that too. That night I think there was a guy pretending to be straight but was really looking for a guy to hook up with. Holy moly, when he was discovered, it was almost WW III.
  9. Hi fishers! I haven't posted in a while because I'm been busy fishing. I've fallen in love with California and Russia fishing. But last night, I had traveled to Michigan to try to catch a few muskie, pike, etc. I can't for the life of me understand why the fishers that enjoy fishing late at night would rather argue with other fishers about jobs, the number of fish caught, the size of fish caught, etc. If it hadn't been so annoying, it would have been hilarious! I understand, even enjoy friendly competition but downright arguing. I felt like I was on the lake with a bunch of three-year-olds that was having the red licked off their candy. And don't misunderstand...I'm not griping; I just found it odd that grown men couldn't simply enjoy the game because the fish were really biting!
  10. Hi fellow anglers! I hope your fishing has been productive lately and not like mine, ugh! But I wanted to ask if anyone has been having issues connecting to the server. I have been having issues for the past week. I sign on, see people fishing but when it starts to load my location, it can't connect. I have to literally exit the game and do a restart to get it to reconnect. I know that I have experience lag issues at times and yes, I'm still griping about those, but now this is getting ridiculous. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  11. I have had the same issue so hopefully I can head to CA tomorrow and try that spot out.
  12. I realize this will not affect many of us as I am guessing the majority of everyone here is of the male gender but please allow this one vent. I am a woman and enjoy fishing. No longer able to fish in real life, I get a lot of enjoyment from this game and so appreciate all of the help everyone has offered me. Your help and tips have enhanced my fishing skills tremendously. Last night while trying to finish up one of the missions and finally catching the necessary fish for the mission, I decided to stay and catfish for a bit since I had to buy the license. I went to the catfish hole, dropped my bait and immediately landed a 13 lb trophy cat. Woohoo, lots of remarks, etc. Dropped the bait again and within five minutes, landed a 12 lb trophy cat. This time the remarks got a bit colorful but I'm not a prude and I simply didn't respond. The next fish was yet another trophy cat (3 within 10 minutes) and then the language went hooker status. Some of the remarks felt like they were being made to a $3 hooker standing on a street corner in torn fishnet stocking and stiletto heels. As I said, I'm not a prude and I can deal with real life but I am a wife of 47 years, a grandmother and I consider myself a lady. I enjoy the random rooms for two reasons; I see some of my fishing buddies there as well as pick up some pretty good tips at times. But I'm wondering if I should simply fish by myself and go into a private room each time. I understand you can't change a leopard's spots but good grief; I truly thought fishing on Fishing Planet was a fun sport and not one of trolling the 'Net for easy women or men. Trust me; I've seen some women's post just a bad toward the men. . This is the second or third time this has happened to me that was this bad. I appreciate all of your advice, your tips and your professionalism of the sport, which is the reason behind my question asking for your opinion. I hate to fish alone but if I must, I will. You can't say anything to these uneducated jacklegs because it only makes it worse. And to the forum owner, if this type post isn't allowed, please delete it. I will understand.
  13. I'm no expert by any means but I usually catch mine in that location about 90 - 95 feet out.
  14. Perfect, this was excellent and answered a lot of my questions! Seems it wasn't an idiotic question after all as many others had the same questions.
