  1. I know the area you are referencing, I have had good luck there with live bait but not with lures. Have tried cranks at various depths and colors, bullet spinners, spinners, topwater, and spoons but seem to only be able to catch 1 or 2 pike, not young pike, per game hour. Do get a lot asp, zander etc,. so worried about even being able to catch 5 during the comp. Will have to expand and try some other stuff and variations. Was not expecting any trade secrets and do appreciate what you suggested, I at least know I am in somewhat of the right area, thanks.
  2. Awesome thanks. Now I just have to find where they are. Under the bridge has been best for me so far but still a very low yield. Any suggestions or clues?
  3. I was thinking about trying out some of the new comps, did Huuuge Ide, and was looking at the Party of 5 in Russia and have a question. It says Spinning tackle only and am wondering what that all encompasses. I am sure it means lures etc,. but does it also mean sinkers and live bait since it can be used with spinning gear. Anyone know? I mostly ask because I can not find the pike on lures anywhere consistently.
  4. I get it too on the ps4, a 1-2 sec lag spike about every 30 secs or so.Do not think its internet, at least on my end, I have business fiber optics with a 100mbps upload and 100mbps download. Makes casting and maintaining a reel in technique a pain. Its not consistent but fairly so. I have experienced this for over a year and keep thinking it will get fixed but apparently not.
  5. I always thought they should set the comp times a better schedule that rotates around the clock, example.. Say the Midnight Gars is currently every 72 hours.. Well instead make it every 70 hours so its start time rotates around the clock and at some point everyone can get in on it.
  6. I think it is referring to things like the quick strike method used to hook fish faster than intended.
  7. The big update made the game interesting again for about 20 mins. Wish we could see some new content.

    ps4

    At this time, I do not believe there is a way. However, I believe in the next patch you will be able to take snap shots in third person.
  9. Excellent post and could not agree more. I did catch my 50 by last Thursday of the rowdies but gave up after that. Just too boring and slow going. So, maybe after 2 more St. Patricks days I will get my 150. Though I did not think the hat was worth it all or even the 100 more gold.
  10. I gave up on crankbaits also, I was trying lures. In Alberta I was mostly using the med spoon #4/0 and #4/0 spinners of various types and I cant remember what I was using in Neherrin but was a 2 or 3 hook set up. it was a set up for the breaking shad tournament. Also found I was having the same problem in Alaska using lures with #4/0 hooks. I have switched to using lures with #2/0 hooks and have seen a huge improvement. Just harder to find lures within the proper weight range using a #2/0 hook. The 5/6 oz #2/0 bullet spinner and the 1oz #2/0 single spoon have been working well with only about a 30% chance of missed bites. It's just weird that I can catch the same fish floating consistently with a #6/0 hook but have to drop to #2/0 with lures.
  11. /Agree. I still have not figured out how to use the chat menu specialty functions. I am curious, has anyone tried hooking a mouse up to the ps4 and using it game?
  12. Is it just me or am I doing something wrong? It has been very difficult to get hooked up with lures especially in certain places like Alberta and Neherrin. It's really sad because I did a tournament in Neherrin and got maybe 20-30 bites but no hook ups and I was trying to show a friend the game and his only comment was "Why play a fishing game where you cant catch fish?" Then I tried the triple trout tournament in alberta and for the first in game hour nothing but bites and then finally started getting hooked up. I tried different hooks sizes, retrieval techniques, speeds, bait, etc,. I even went back to those places after the tournament and still had the same issues. In other places it is no where near as bad but I do not ever want to go back to those two lakes again. However, when I am seeing guys catching 30+ fish in a tournament that I am getting nothing but bites leads me to believe I am doing something wrong... Any help?
  13. I have noticed a few people running multiple accounts such as b-a-x-t-a and a-x-t-a-b which I am sure helps. Use one account to go first and find the best thing they are hitting on then use the main account afterwards to fish it up.
  14. I, and others, have mentioned some of these in other places. I just kind of wanted to consolidate them. 1. Ocean fishing: From day boats, beach, pier etc,. Raise level cap to 50, incorporate ocean fishing from 40-50. Think of the money you could make on new packs for that! 2. Cabin. Buy a cabin on a lake to display your record fish and tournament trophies. The lake you purchase the cabin on, probably with bait coins, you would not have to pay travel expenses to because it is your home lake., Friends and club mates should be able to visit it and you should be able to decorate it. 3. Club management system and maybe instead of a cabin above the club would have a cabin that could display the record fish of each type caught by the club and who caught it. Bragging rights is always good. 4. High end gear. Not something winnable from tournaments but maybe like a quest or mission. Catch certain uniques from certain lakes of certain poundages or something. 5. High end packages. I reached level 40, have all the top gear, caught all the unique fish.. need something more to go after and do. I have given up on tournaments.
  15. definatley be cool to get some polarized sun glasses.
  16. Like the aquarium idea but at least a trophy room but the idea of having a cabin and decorating it with fish trophies, tournament trophies would be cool. Buy it on a lake, and where you buy the cabin you have dont have to pay travel fees because thats your home lake.. Friends should be able to visit it too.
  17. /agree I was thinking the same thing. Would live to see some ocean fishing too. Renting dayboats or off the beach, jedi, or pier.
  18. I found this game to be just the opposite. I got to level 40 and had all the top gear in less than two weeks. Really not much of a grind at all. If anything not enough of a grind. When I play a game I expect 2-3 months of grinding to get to max level and all the top equipment. I only wish there was more stuff. New equipment would be nice. I'm tired of the same equipment being released in packs but in a different color. Heh, the game needs a quest to get some uber gear

    New maps

    Have there been any indications of adding ocean fishing? Would love to go after some Halibut, tuna, mahi mahi, sword fish, shark etc,. on the west coast.
  20. Sweet, I finally got it, twice. 40 something days.. I got it by the left camp fire so I might have been in the wrong place since I was focusing near the right camp fire. The other I got by accident. Just left of the Uni lake trout. Seems an interesting area since in the same spot I have caught the uni splake, uni brook trout, and uni lake trout.
  21. I'm probably the odd man out but I enjoy this game because I can do everything on my own with out having to rely on other people. I'm sick of the entire clan thing and having to do what everyone else is doing and having to search for people to help you complete something. I just want to be able to relax and fish, do my own thing and not have to worry about or rely on others to complete tasks in the game and yet be able to participate in all aspects of the game. Multi-people events means I wont/cant participate. If it comes to that, i'm out.
  22. Thanks but 4 days on that netted zero splake caught. Not one single splake and I covered the area from the burbot unique to the almost where the salmon start. 145ft out during all the peak and unique times. Caught my typical 2 per game hour fish, lake trout, burbot, perch, brook trout, and salmon., even 1 pike. Starting to think something wrong with my game and time to delete lol and consider if I should re-install. I do not mind grinding but having to put in 40 hours of real life work to get one unique is starting to get ridiculous when I see others do it so easy. Would consider trying during the trout tournament but I can never seem to catch more than 3 fish during any tournament. Thanks for all the input. Much appreciated.
  23. Thanks for the replies. I will keep trying. Are you catching them on left side where the unique bulbot and unique lake trout are or in the area of the right side camp fire?
  24. Does this fish still exist in game? I am on day 27 trying to catch this fish and I have never even seen one caught. I watched all the videos and got all the info I can on this fish but no luck. I understand my account has bad luck catching uni's, took me over 40 real life hours to catch the unique striper in California and I am the guy who spends 8 real life hours trying to catch the unique blue catfish while everyone else comes up and catches one in a few casts yet I use the same set up and technique. However, since I have never even seen this fish caught I just do not want to waste my time trying to catch it if it's not available anymore. Mostly I have been using the 1/2 oz rainbow spinner but have tried the 1 1/2 oz med spoon. I even tried float fishing but caught too much salmon even when I switched over to salmon eggs.. thought that was weird. Oh, Devs, on a side note, I would say you got stripers half right, yes they move around but are very predictable. The lake in Cali I caught them at, I knew exactly where they were at certain times of the day. 5:30am they were at the inlet pushing the shad to shore which was so bad you could use a dip net to catch shad then fly line them out to catch a striper. and when you did, they ran like hell. They would only be there for about 30 minutes but you knew it...
