    Feeding: Part 1

    Hey, anglers! Today we’ll take a closer look at one of the key element of feeder fishing, namely, Feeding. Feeding implies “providing food” for a certain areas of a waterway to attract bottom fish and keep them in that area. In this DevBlog entry we’ll tell you all about how the Feeding system functions as a feature within the game. How Feeding works. The chum that you use to feed the selected feed area can have different properties depending on the components used to prepare it. In the game, you can use either basic groundbait mixes by simply adding some water or make your own unique chum by using different components and additives. Either way, the efficiency of your chum will directly depend on the components as well as the conditions in which you plan to use it. You can prepare the chum mix only when you are already at a waterway, because it stays fresh only for a limited in-game period of time and should be used within the time limits shown on a special indicator in your inventory. Separate packed components and particle mixes, on the other hand, have no expiration date. Besides, ready-made chum is very inconvenient in terms of transportation. That’s why once you leave the waterway, all the leftovers remaining from your prepared chum will be automatically disposed of. To start Feeding the fish, you must place the chum into a feeder and cast it to the desired spot. You can find more info about feeders in this DevBlog entry: Feeder Fishing: Part 1 Feeder Fishing: Part 2 Once in the water, the chum begins to spread from the feeder, depending on its components, the type of the feeder you are using and the speed of flow. By seeping from the feeder, the chum creates so-called “Feeding spots” or “feed area” that attract bottom fish to the area. Of course, many factors should be taken into account in order to make the Feeding most effective. You should consider the bottom terrain, time of day, weather conditions, temperature, speed of current, components used for making the chum and what fish they will attract and even the amount of chum you need to distribute in the given area. It is important to keep in mind that even the most efficient and abundant Feeding won’t help you get many bites, if the feed area is initially devoid of fish. That’s why it’s always important to explore and study the waterway to select the areas with abundant fish activity. At this stage, the only way of Feeding in the game will be with the help of feeders. In the future, however, we will most likely be adding other methods, like tossing the chum by hand. But it is too early to talk about at the moment.

    Feeder Fishing news. Part 2

    The feeder is usually filled with a special feeder mix made out of many components to attract the fish. By casting the feeder repeatedly in the same spot, it creates a so-called “chum spot” that builds up the feed and attracts the fish, resulting in much more frequent bites and bigger catches! Before you start feeding fish it’s important to study the bottom terrain and look for areas with higher fish activity and then prepare the feeder bait. Time after time, by filling up the feeder and recasting it to the same chosen spot, you’ll be able to attract a whole school of fish. The length of the hooklink can be adjusted by securing the line to stop it from running, but one must be careful not to lose the hookbait when making a powerful cast. You can feeder fish by holding the rod in hand or use special rod stands that will let you make multiple casts using a number of rods simultaneously. The rod’s flexible quiver tip swill shows even a slight fish bite while using an alarm bell is a sure way no to miss it. With some practice and proper effort, this method should definitely pay off, rewarding the angler with a hefty catch! Сhum will work almost anywhere, but this method is most popular in Europe, where there the “white”, no-predatory fish are more abundant. Crucian Carp, Bream, Tench, Common Carp, and many other related species are you most likely catch when feeder fishing! Enjoy your feeder experience with Fishing Planet and tight lines!

    Multi-Rod Fishing

    The coolest thing about bottom fishing is the possibility of using different rods simultaneously! That’s what makes so many anglers hyped about this way of fishing, and that’s exactly what we are currently working on!;) Once the whole Multi-rod feature is introduced to the game, we’ll also be adding new fishing equipment, namely the Rod Holders, that will let you catch fish using multiple rods at the same time! At first, we plan to add about 7 different kinds of Rod Holders, that will mostly differ by their rod capacity, being capable of holding from 1 to 4 rods each. This means that the player will get a chance to take one Rod Holder on a fishing trip and use it by setting up in any convenient location, as well as adjusting its direction and height. We also plan to add the possibility of taking multiple Rod Holders with a capacity for 1 rod, so that you could set them up in different locations. Certain rod holder models will even have a Bite Signal feature installed. Aside from this, we’ll also be adding stationary rod holders on some of the waterways that will be available for all anglers to use. When all the functionalities related to bottom fishing and rod holders are introduced to the game, the players will be able to fish using various lures and baits simultaneously, which should drastically change everyone’s attitude to float and bottom-fishing rigs!

    Fishing in the Netherlands

    Hey, anglers:) As you well know, Fishing Planet will soon be expanding its fishing premises onto the much awaited European regions! An so, today we’ll tell you about the Ghent–Terneuzen Canal in the Kingdom of the Netherlands - a place where you’ll be having some unforgettable fishing adventures! Also known as Zeekanaal (or simply the Sea Canal), it links Ghent in Belgium to the port of Terneuzen on the Westerschelde estuary in the Netherlands. This deep canal (about 12m / 40 ft in depth) runs 200m (660 ft) wide and 32 km (20 mi) long, while serving as a navigable passage for large vessels almost all year round. The in-game fishing locations are situated on the part of the canal near the small town of Westdorpe, just a few miles off the Belgium–Netherlands border. The shoreline is somewhat monotonous, which on the one hand makes this area seem a bit dull, but on the other - provides a perfect location for large-scale feeder and float fishing competitions. In fact, World Feeder Championships 2015 was held here as well as countless regional and local competitions. Among other things, this canal is so attractive to anglers because it is inhabited both by typical freshwater species (Ide, Common Bream and Common Roach) as well as sea fish (like the European Flounder, Thicklip Grey Mullet and the European Eel). Only the eastern bank (right side) of the canal in this location is available for fishing. The fishing area is about 1km in length. Since this waterway is a canal, the steady-sloping grassy bank is basically unchanging, lined with some reed thickets close to the shore. Beyond the fishing area, you’ll see a hilly tree-lined landscape with a highway and farm fields barely noticeable in the distance. Although the landscape and the shoreline are largely unchanged, the fishing area can be roughly divided into two parts, that is two fishing locations: 1) An urbanistic bank near a large highway span bridge, overlooking a large elevator and massive warehouses on the opposite side; 2) A shoreline overlooking Dutch houses and farm fields with windmills. Here are some interesting man-made objects that we added as part of the scenery: 1) a highway span-bridge across the canal; 2) huge cargo ships navigating the canal; 3) towboats and freight-laden barges navigating the canal; 4) an industrial area with a moore and an elevator across the canal; 5) modern and old-fashioned windmills atop the hills across the canal; 6) Dutch-style houses as part of the landscape. Here’s a quick overview to give you a general idea on how we created the new waterway: First off, our game-designer (who is also an expert angler) did some in-depth R'n'D looking for the right waterway in the Netherlands. The key factor to consider was the waterway’s popularity particularly among feeder anglers in the region. Since we were looking at the Netherlands, we wanted it to be a canal, to add some local coloring. Among other factors were the abundance of fish species, some interesting landscapes (we don’t want to repeat ourselves), etc. Once we found the perfect waterway, our angling game-designer drafted up a detailed plan with a map and all the necessary info that was further handed over to our 3D artists. It was up to them to create the scene, plant the trees and bushes, design and scale the industrial objects, etc. After that, it was up to our programmers to do some coding magic and make the towboats and cargo ships move, the windmills spin, the cars drive and the span-bridge turn. Finally, once all of that was completed, it was once again up to our angling game-designer to create the waterway’s bottom terrain and structure. And right now, we are working on the fish setup for this waterway which is one of the final steps before waterway introduction into the Game.
  14. Hey, angling friends! Today we’ll give you a little insight into the captivating world of feeder fishing and tell you about this very popular technique, widely practiced and much loved by anglers worldwide! Feeder fishing was originally invented in Great Britain - a nation with an immense history of fishing, and one that particularly enjoys this sporty pastime. Two things make feeder fishing different from all other methods: the use of feeders instead of simple traditional bait (that’s where it gets its name from) and the use of special fishing rods with a soft, sensitive quiver tip. The quiver tip’s sensitivity shows the rod’s “test”, usually measured in ounces or grams. The right “test” depends on the fishing conditions and target fish that you plan to catch. If properly chosen, this parameter should allow identifying even the slightest fish bites in any conditions. Enjoy your feeder experience with Fishing Planet and tight lines!
