  1. Wow a money grind!!!

    Well, the level cap is at 40, after that you can gain Rank. At this point we don't know how the Rank will affect future purchases, etc. However, it can be a real grind if you don't plan ahead and lose a bunch of cash. Before you go to a location, plan on spending at least seven days. Make sure you have all the equipment, bait, etc. in your inventory before you leave home. Make sure you have the proper licences (don't need to get a big fine). On the Map Screen you can select how many days you want the trip to be, ONLY GO FOR ONE DAY! You can extend the trip at the location and if you have to leave for some reason, you won't have wasted any money. Just like when fishing in real life, or for than matter anything you do you need to have preparation. I simply call it the "P" Principle "Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance" Just relax and enjoy the game! Good luck and tight lines to you all!
  2. Help on forms

    Hi, I'm not with Support, but I can answer your question. Yes, that is one of the advantages of the DLC equipment, it can be used by any level player.
  3. Question bout line

    Yes. You can use Mono, Flouro, or Braid with any type of rod. But the line type will affect the casting distance. Braid will cast the farthest because of the smaller diameter.
  4. Q&A with the Dev Team! #4

    There are several current locations that could support 10 players rather than 5, with the advent of Kayaks. I can think of several that may be able to support that many. New York & North Carolina, for example. Louisiana could probably support 15-20 rather than 10, just on the size. Are there any plans to expand the number of players at such locations?
  5. Planning Another Community Event, #7

    My German is not what it use to be, but I'm pretty sure I know your suggestion. This time we think all the smallest would be the best. Many who play the game always try for the BIG fish, catching the smallest can be a great challenge. I have your suggestion and we may do that in the future. Danke
  6. We are currently planning another Community-wide 5-7 day Event. Same basic principles; however, we are considering making it all the same species and going for the smallest three you can catch. The scoring would still be done by average and the winner would have the smallest average weight, rather than the biggest. So, let us know what you think about the idea.
  7. New CLUBS Tab

    Yep, very cool.
  8. Community New Years Event - Closed

    Hi Nabla, well there are several locations for the Uni Redband and Rainbows, but I just provide information on what several of us found to be the most productive. The set-up I used was a Fenix 14'10" rod, EspiraMLR 3500, 12 pound Flouro line, and 3/0 hook. You can set the drag at 10 of 12. For both fish we used maximum depth. Redband: Go to the Kayak Peg and walk down the trail to the left cast about 130 to 140 feet out at the base of the rock wall using Mayflies fishing prime time, both day and night on the chart. Rainbow: Go to the bottom right peg cast between 65-75 feet out to the right of the rock just off the right shoreline using Shiners or Large Minnows, night fishing during prime time was very productive. On nights with 3 clouds from 3 am to 5 am we caught most of the biggest fish. Hope that helps. Good luck and tight lines!
  9. Topwater Fishing

    Hi shaysaidso, basically many folks use many different "favorite" set-ups. It depends on the type of fish you are fishing for, what type of lure or bait you want to use, etc. Something I posted a long time ago may help, then you can decide how you want to fish and with what set-up. Good luck & tight lines.

  14. PH_Flshbone will be hosting a Community New Years Event for the Fishing Planet Community (PC Only). The event will start Sunday, December 31st at 9:01 am EST and end on January 5th at 11:59 am EST. We will be fishing in Oregon (Falcon Lake) for Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Reband Trout. The biggest fish of each species caught during the event time may be entered. Take a screen shot of your fish in your hand with the full UI. At the start of the event we will post a code to be typed in the chat window when you take your screen shot. You can use any tackle/lures/bait you like; however, X-Series equipment or lures are NOT allowed. The weight and screen shots of each of your biggest fish need to be put on the Entry Form withing an hour of the fish being caught. We will also post a link to the Entry Form and Standings Page at the start of the Event. As you catch bigger fish you can edit your entry on the entry form. Fish caught during official in-game competitions will not count.
