  10. Hey there fellow Angler, Imagine it’s spring, and the weather is warm. The cool season has passed, although the rainy season hasn't started yet. The water is heating up fast, causing fish to become more active and move closer to the shores. The Pacific Bluefin Tuna spawning season starts. Excitedly, you gather your friends for a fishing expedition to a small Japanese island. As you prepare, you need to ensure you have all the necessary tackles to reel in the abundant fish awaiting you in this picturesque location. Take the time to study fish range, habitats, diet, lifestyle, and fishing methods to make the most out of this adventure. This DevDiary will help you in planning your trip and maximizing your fishing experience in Japan. Naturally, when you think of this region, Tuna comes to mind first! In this location, you'll encounter six types of tuna — well, technically five, but we'll get to that later. Tuna are highly valued and prized on local markets for their quality in sushi and sashimi. Yellowfin Tuna The Yellowfin Tuna (Thunnus albacares), a big pelagic fish of the tuna genus, roams temperate and tropical waters across all oceans. These highly migratory creatures form schools with other tunas, such as skipjack and bigeye, and often swim alongside dolphins. During the day, they prefer deeper waters but come closer to the surface at night. With impressive dimensions of up to 440 lbs (200kg) and 8.2 feet (2,5 m) in length, they're constantly on the move, feeding actively day and night, seldom diving below 880 feet (100m). Their diet includes small fish, crustaceans, and squid. Yellowfin Tuna are prolific breeders, capable of reproduction year-round. Bigeye Tuna The Bigeye Tuna (Thunnus obesus) shares similarities with the Yellowfin tuna in size, diet, and behavior. However, unlike its closest relatives, Yellowfin and Skipjack Tuna, the Bigeye is known for its longevity, often reaching over 15 years of age. In contrast, Yellowfin Tuna typically live for about 7-8 years at most. Pacific Bluefin Tuna The Pacific Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus orientalis) inhabits warm and moderate waters of the North Pacific Ocean, although it's exceptionally rare in the southern regions. As the largest tuna species in the Pacific and second largest globally (after the Atlantic), it can grow up to an impressive 9 feet (3m) in length and weigh over 880 lbs (400kg). Typically, Pacific Bluefin Tuna don't venture below 650 feet (200m). Known for their great appetite, they prey on a diverse range of small schooling fish, squid, and crabs. Longfin Tuna (Albacore) The Albacore (Thunnus alalunga) is distinguished by its notably long pectoral fins. Found in temperate and tropical regions across all oceans, it can grow up to 132 lbs (60kg) in weight. With a remarkable ability to roam from the surface to depths of nearly 2000 feet (600m), Albacore are constantly in motion, actively feeding day and night like their tuna counterparts. What sets Albacore apart is their dietary preference for cephalopods, especially squid, although they also consume fish, crustaceans, and jelly-like organisms. Albacore meat is considered superior quality and the finest among all tuna varieties. Skipjack Tuna The Skipjack Tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis) is a schooling pelagic fish, distinguished as the sole member of its genus. Widely distributed across temperate and tropical regions of all oceans, it's relatively small, with a maximum weight of 77 lbs (35kg). In behavior and lifestyle, the Skipjack closely resembles the Yellowfin Tuna, often forming massive schools with them that can number up to fifty thousand individuals, including young specimens. Feeding primarily on small fish, squid, and crustaceans found in surface waters, Skipjack Tuna are a vital commercial species, topping the charts as the most caught tuna worldwide. Dogtooth Tuna The Dogtooth Tuna (Gymnosarda unicolor) is a large pelagic fish belonging to the Gymnosard genus. Despite its name, it's not actually a true tuna but resembles one externally. Found in the warm waters of the Indo-Pacific region, it inhabits depths ranging from 33 to 1000 feet (10 to 300m). This formidable predator prefers to lurk near reefs, underwater rocks, and steep cliffs. With lengths reaching up to 8.2 feet (2.5m) and weights up to 287 pounds (130kg), it commands respect in its habitat. Competing fiercely for food with other fish, including sharks and groupers, the Dogtooth Tuna hunts solo or in small groups. Its diet primarily consists of small schooling fish and squid. During the fight, it puts up a formidable resistance, often attempting sharp dives to the depths in an effort to break free by rubbing the fishing line against bottom objects. The tackle for fishing all types of tuna remains quite similar. Anglers favor Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardines, Japanese Flying Squid, Japanese Jack Mackerel, and Japanese Anchovy as preferred baits, along with Plugs, Trolling Octopus, Squid Chain, Crankbaits, Minnows, Medium Spoons, and Poppers as preferred lures. When it comes to fishing methods, trolling stands out as the top choice for targeting any tuna species. We've covered tuna, so now let's explore the other fish species found in this region. We've covered tuna, so now let's explore the other fish species found in this region. Giant Grouper Giant Grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus) is a large demersal fish of the Serranidae family. It inhabits coastal waters at depths up to 330 feet (100m). It can reach the length of 8.9 feet (2.7m) and the weight of up to 882 lbs (400kg). The Giant Grouper is a predator that is not picky about food and prefers ambush hunting. Spiny lobster is its favorite food. It also feeds on crabs, a variety of fish (including small sharks and rays), and young sea turtles. It’s better to use bottom tackle with large animal bait to catch it. Preferred baits: Japanese Spiny Lobster, Gutted Fish, Large Fish Strips, Crab, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Scaled Sardines. Ruby Snapper The Ruby Snapper (Etelis carbunculus) is a demersal fish found in the Indo-Pacific region, belonging to the Lutjanidae family. It thrives near rocky reefs, typically dwelling at depths ranging from 300 to 1300 feet (90-400m), with a minimum depth of 33 feet (10m). It can grow up to 77 lbs (35kg) in weight. Feeding on fish, squid, crustaceans, and cephalopods, the Ruby Snapper often forms small groups. It's commonly caught using bottom or jig tackle, with shiny and luminous elements attracting this species. Preferred baits include Medium Fish Strips, Large Fish Strips, Crab, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Scaled Sardines, and Japanese Flying Squid, while Pilkers are favored as lures to reel in this fish. We believe that Ruby Snapper can take part in the Prettiest-fish-in-the-game contest and have all the chances to win. What do you think? Green Jobfish The Green Jobfish (Aprion virescens) is another bottom-dwelling species found in the waters of Kaiji No Ri. Belonging to the Lutjanidae family, it inhabits the Indo-Pacific region, favoring coastal areas near rocky and coral reefs, as well as channels and deep lagoons at depths ranging from 3 to 400 feet (1-120m). It can weigh up to 35 lbs (16kg). Feeding primarily on fish, the Green Jobfish also consumes crustaceans, cephalopods, and zooplankton. It may lead a solitary life or form small groups. Bottom and jig tackle are most effective for catching it. Preferred baits include Sea Worms, Shrimp, Gulf Shrimp, Crab, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Finger Mullets, and Scaled Sardines. Pilkers are the preferred lure for attracting this fish. Mahi-Mahi Mahi-Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), also known as Common Dolphinfish, is a predatory medium-sized pelagic fish. It is very common in tropical and subtropical waters of all oceans. It can reach up to 88 lbs (40kg) in weight and more than 6.5 feet (2m) in length. This fish lives and hunts near the surface in the open ocean. Its young flock into small groups, and large fish lead a solitary lifestyle. It feeds on zooplankton, flying fish, mackerel, squid, and crabs. It hunts during the day, but can also be active on bright nights. You can spot the location of Mahi-Mahi on the high seas thanks to birds, Sargassum algae, and a variety of debris that float on the surface and around which forage fish gather. You can catch it by casting and high-speed trolling with artificial lures, as well as live bait. Preferred baits: Grub, Gulf Shrimp, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardine, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Japanese Flying Squid. Preferred lures: Bucktails, Plugs, Crankbait, Minnows, Popper, Walke, Medium Spoon, Bullet Spinner,Trolling Octopuses. Striped Marlin The Striped Marlin (Kajikia audax) is a formidable pelagic predator inhabiting the surface layers of tropical and temperate waters across the Indo-Pacific region. It can potentially grow up to 496 lbs (225kg) in weight and length surpassing 13 feet (4m). Preferring a solitary existence, Striped Marlins exhibit a unique behavior of cooperative hunting, where multiple individuals target the same prey schools. This nocturnal predator is most active during the night, often seen breaching the water's surface in pursuit of its prey. Feeding primarily on schooling fish and cephalopods, Striped Marlins are sought after by anglers using trolling techniques with artificial lures or live bait. Preferred baits: Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardines, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Japanese Flying Squid. Preferred lures: Plugs, Trolling Octopuses, Squid Chain, Crankbait, Minnows. Greater Amberjack The Greater Amberjack (Seriola dumerili) reigns as the largest member of the Carangidae family, boasting weights exceeding 176 lbs (80kg) and lengths surpassing 6 feet (1.8m). Thriving in tropical, subtropical, and warm temperate waters, this semi-pelagic predator is a formidable force. Living mostly by the deep-sea structures like caves, reefs, and shipwrecks, the Greater Amberjack sustains itself on a diet of fish, cephalopods, and crustaceans. Known colloquially as the "reef donkey" for its tenacious fighting spirit, it's often encountered as bycatch during bottom fishing expeditions alongside Snappers and Groupers. To reel in this prized catch, anglers employ trolling and casting techniques, utilizing both live baits and artificial lures. Preferred baits: Gulf Shrimp, Crab, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardines, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Japanese Flying Squid, Medium Fish Strips, Large Fish Strips. Preferred lures: Pilkers, Bucktails, Plugs, Trolling Octopuses, Medium Spoons, Crankbaits, Minnows, Poppers. Japanese Amberjack (Yellowtail) Japanese Amberjack (Seriola quinqueradiata) is a medium-sized schooling pelagic predatory fish of the Carangidae family, also known as Yellowtail. It inhabits open and coastal waters of Japan, Korea, Taiwan. This fish can reach up to 88 lbs (40kg) in weight and 5 feet (1.5m) in length. It feeds on small schooling fish in all layers of water. During the day it tends to stay at a greater depth than at night. Yellowtail is highly valued in Japan as a fish for sushi and sashimi, as well as for canning. Japanese Amberjack is often caught as a bycatch during bottom fishing, and can also be caught with trolling or casting. It responds well to fast retrieval with strong and frequent tossing of the bait in the water. Preferred baits: Shrimp, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardines, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy. Preferred lures: Pilkers, Bucktails, Minnows, Medium Spoon, Narrow Spoon, Bullet Spinner, Soft Baits (Grubs, Shads). Giant Trevally Giant Trevally (Caranx ignobilis) is a large coastal semi-pelagic fish that is common in tropical and subtropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. It’s the largest representative of its kind, reaching 176 lbs (80kg) in weight and 6.5 feet (2m) in length. Its young live in shallow bays, lagoons, intertidal zones, and estuaries, while adults live in deep pools, near atolls in the open sea, and on deep water reefs. This fish is territorial and leads a solitary life, but sometimes creates small groups. It hunts around the clock and in all layers of water, but prefers to spend most of the time at the bottom. The Giant Trevally feeds mainly on fish, crustaceans, cephalopods, and doesn’t mind carrion fish. You can successfully catch it with the bottom and spinning tackle. Preferred baits: Gulf Shrimp, Crab, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardines, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Japanese Flying Squid, Medium Fish Strips, Large Fish Strips. Preferred lures: Pilkers, Bucktails, Crankbait, Minnows, Medium Spoon, Popper, Walker, Soft Baits (Grubs, Shads). Narrow-Barred Spanish Mackerel Narrow-Barred Mackerel (Scomberomorus commerson) is a large pelagic coastal schooling fish of the Scombridae family, also known as the Spanish Mackerel. It can reach up to 154 lbs (70kg) in weight and about 8 feet (2.4m) in length. It can be found at depths of up to 2132 feet (650m) in the tropical waters of the Indian and Western Pacific Oceans. This fish prefers to settle near reefs, but can also swim in estuaries and lagoons. This is an undemanding and voracious predator that hunts around the clock. Small fish, shrimp, and squid make up the basis of its diet. Gulf Shrimp, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardine, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy, Japanese Flying Squid are commonly chosen by anglers as preferred baits, and the preferred lures usually are Pilkers, Bucktails, Plugs,Trolling Octopuses, Crankbait, Minnows, Medium Spoon and Soft Baits (Grubs, Shads). Striped Bonito Striped Bonito (Sarda orientalis) is a small schooling pelagic coastal fish of the Scombridae family. It can reach just over 22 lbs (10kg) in weight and more than 3 feet (1m) in length. It lives in subtropical and tropical waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans at depths up to 300 feet (90m). This fish forms mixed flocks with other mackerels of its size. Small fish, shrimp, and squid make up the basis of its diet. You can catch it by casting and trolling with artificial lures, as well as with live baits. Preferred baits: Shrimp, Gulf Shrimp, Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardine, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy. Preferred lures: Pilkers, Bucktails, Crankbait, Minnows, Medium Spoon, Narrow Spoon, Bullet Spinner, Soft Baits (Grubs, Shads). Japanese Jack Mackerel Japanese Jack Mackerel (Trachurus japonicus) is a rather large pelagic schooling fodder fish of the Carangidae family. It can reach 1.6 feet (0.5m) in length, and its weight can be more than 1.3 lb (0.6kg). It lives at depths of up to 900 feet (275m) on sandy bottom areas in the coastal zones of the East China and Japan Seas, as well as off the coast of southern Japan, the Korean Peninsula and Taiwan in waters of 60–80° F (15-27°C). The Japanese Jack Mackerel feeds on small crustaceans (copepods), as well as shrimps and small fish. You can successfully catch it from berths in marinas both during the day and at night (especially with a torch), with a spinning rod using small lures, as well as with float tackle using animal baits. Preferred baits: Sea Worms, Finger Mullets, Shrimp, Japanese Anchovy. Preferred lures: Soft Baits (Grubs, Worms, Craws, Slugs). Japanese Anchovy Japanese Anchovy (Engraulis japonicus) is a small schooling pelagic fish up to 8 inches (20cm) long that weighs up to 3.5 Oz (100g). It lives in the upper layers of water, but can be found at a depth of up to 1380 feet (420m) in coastal areas, in the south of the Sea of Okhotsk, in the Japan, Yellow, and East China Seas, as well as off the Japan’s Pacific coast. The Japanese Anchovy is a plankton feeder. Adults mostly feed on zooplankton: copepods, eggs and larvae of fish and spineless. This fish is an important product of commercial fishing. You can also catch the Anchovy with float and spinning tackle during any time of the day. Usual preferred baits are Natural Eggs, Sea Worms and Spawn Sack, and preferred lures are Soft Baits like Worms and Slugs. Bigfin Reef Squid The Bigfin Reef Squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana) is a small mollusc, growing up to 2.6 feet(80cm) in length and weighing as much as 4.4 lbs (2kg). Resembling a cuttlefish due to its long fins, it's commonly found in the temperate and tropical waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Inhabiting depths of up to 330 feet (100m) near coastlines, particularly around rocks and coral reefs, this squid tends to gather in groups and remains active day and night, although it may be less active during daylight hours. As a voracious predator, its diet consists mainly of crustaceans and small fish, and it forages in shallow and deep waters across all layers. Anglers can catch the Bigfin Reef Squid year-round using a spinning rod equipped with squid and jig lures. Preferred baits: Shrimp, Gulf Shrimp,Finger Mullets, Scaled Sardine, Japanese Jack Mackerel, Japanese Anchovy. Preferred lures: Pilkers, Squid Jigs Here’s the list of all the fish species you'll encounter in the waters of Kaiji No Ri, but that's not all we have prepared for you! As mentioned earlier, the upcoming ocean map will be over 20 times bigger than all the other maps in the game combined. As you can see from the fish guide above, there will be a significant presence of highly migratory fish species in this expansive location. The ocean update comes packed with several major features that are entirely new to the game and one of them, which we've dubbed Fish Active Zones, will provide anglers with valuable hints on where to find feeding grounds, the areas where fish gather to feed on bait fish, plankton, or other food sources. These areas are typically characterized by natural features or phenomena that attract fish, such as underwater structures, currents, temperature changes, or concentrations of prey. For example, seabirds such as seagulls often hover or dive over areas where fish are feeding near the surface. Such behavior indicates the presence of baitfish being chased by larger predatory fish. In such hotspots you'll witness different species of tuna leaping out of the water to hunt small fish. We won’t reveal all the secrets now to ensure your adventure remains unspoiled when the ocean map is released, but to give you an idea of the feature's complexity, the Fish Active Zones will dynamically change based on factors such as weather, time of day, and other natural elements, mirroring real-life conditions. Last but not least, we've covered the fish you can catch, but there's more. While cruising on your yacht through the ocean, you'll encounter pods of dolphins and majestic whales breaching the surface. These ocean creatures will not only add to the thrill of your stay, but they'll also serve other purposes, which you'll discover later on. We feel your anticipation for the ocean update, and we share your excitement! Your support and attention mean the world to us as we work to bring you this new experience. Stay tuned for our next DevDiary, where we'll explore the Kaaiji No Ri location and its new features in more detail.

Come have fun competing with other players and trying to catch the biggest fish! The journey will start in North America, then head to Europe, and finally explore the waters of South America. For those of you who are new to the game, signing up for the tournament gives you access to all the Tournament waterways, no matter your level. Plus, the registration fee covers all the licenses you need to catch qualifying fish in the tournament states. And if you consider getting some new equipment, The World Cats Cup Pack will be your reliable support in this journey! This bundle contains everything you need for a bottom fishing tournament. Here’s the tournament schedule: March 12: Qualifier 1 at Saint Croix Lake in Michigan. March 13: Qualifier 2 on the beautiful Sander Baggersee Lake in Germany. March 14: Qualifier 3 on the swampy shores of Quanchkin Lake in Louisiana. March 16: Semifinal on the tropical banks of the Marron River in Bolivia. March 17: Tournament Final in the winding streams of the Amazonian Maze in Brazil. Now, let's talk about the rules. We've recently joined the Epic Games Store, which means you can play against folks on Steam too! Here's the most important part: you can have Fishing Planet accounts on both platforms, but you can only use one Fishing Planet account per device for tournaments. We know gaming with family is awesome, but for tournaments, each family member should play on their own device. If you share a device, just pick one person to compete. For all the details, check out our Competitive Activity Rules. They've been updated slightly, so take a peek here: https://fishingplanet.com/TournamentRules.htm Good luck to you all, and may every fish you reel in from the bottom lead you to the very top!

  21. In the early days of spring, as the sun peeks over the hills and rivers take on a verdant hue, the notorious Snakeheads emerge, causing chaos and scattering fish in their wake. But fear not, brave Angler, for you alone hold the power to restore peace to the Fishing Planet world, much like St.Patrick banished serpents from Ireland. Today marks the start of one of the most anticipated events of the year and first things first - you need a cool outfit for the Syt. Patrick’s Day party! Our new anglers have the chance to embark on missions and earn our all time favorite Leprechaun Frock Coat, Paddy's Top Hat and the Green Shamrock Glasses with the shiny St. Patrick's Song motorboat. Meanwhile, seasoned anglers who already earned all of those items in the previous years, eagerly await the opportunity to amass hundreds of Baitcoins by reeling in event fish from the St. Patrick green waters! With the ocean map nearing its final stages, it's a wise move to keep earning those Baitcoins for what lies ahead in the nearest future. In search of the Lucky Horseshoe: Rainbow Chase Harness the power of ancient craftsmanship with the Gold Horseshoe Stringer to rid the waters of those pesky Snakeheads! Venture to any pond where festive boat races are held—Emerald, Tiber, Saint-Croix, San Joaquin, Sander Baggersee, or Blue Crab Island—emerge victorious, and collect parts of the Gold Horseshoe Stringer. Also, obtain Clover Coins to pay Leprechauns for Stringer repair. The Magic Cauldrons Follow the rainbow to uncover the elusive Silver and Golden pots—they can manifest anywhere! These enchanted cauldrons bestow event baits for catching event fish, as well as credits, Clover Coins, or Baitcoins. The Lucky Horseshoes Venture into the surroundings to uncover Lucky Horseshoes and unlock a trove of special items! From event baits to extraordinary treasures like the Lucky Charm Catapult, Leprechaun's Chest, Triskele Rod Stand, Kayak Irish Rover, and even the illustrious St. Patrick's Song Motor Boat. May the luck of the Irish shamrock be with you! What's more, most of the Pots and Lucky Horseshoes are accessible to all, including those who completed all the event missions in previous years. Keep your eyes peeled for these magical treasures and reap the rewards! Let’s get down to our event fish Event lures are your ticket to attracting those Sneakerheads in no time! But remember, for a secure capture of every last one, make sure to equip the Gold Horseshoe Stringer. You get 1 Clover Coin for completing the Leprechaun's Favor missions, but even if you did complete all of them, you can still enjoy the thrill of catching event fish and earning a shiny golden Baitcoin for each one! Enhance your luck by using event baits, the delicious Drunken Worm, Bully Grasshopper and Pickled Januari Palm Fruit, which greatly increase your chances of catching Rowdy Bass, Leprechaun Fish, and Buzzman Tambaqui. You've got until March 18th at 10:00 UTC to complete all the event missions, giving you a total of 11 days to conquer them all! If you're looking to boost your chances of success this year, consider enlisting some extra help with our St. Patrick’s pack. It includes event rods, reels, and event baits to aid you on your mission together with two pond passes and licenses. Steam EpicGames American PSN Store European PSN Store Xbox For even more assistance, check out our Green Fortune Pack. Not only does it feature all the event lures and equipment you'll need, but it also comes with a generous supply of 777 Clover Coins, 7 pond passes and licenses for event locations, the Golden Horseshoe Stringer to immediately combat those pesky Snakeheads, and the unique Shamrock Headlamp to uncover additional Leprechaun pots brimming with gold.

  22. Hi, We will announce it as soon as it will be ready. Stay tuned and sorry for the delay.
  23. As we near the final stages of developing the new ocean map, we're eager to keep you in the loop about our progress. We understand your anticipation for the release, and rest assured, it's our top priority too. With this update, we're introducing several exciting new features, which is why we're taking the time to ensure everything runs smoothly. Today, we're here to offer you a sneak peek behind the scenes at the Fishing Together feature. But remember, this is just the first glimpse of what's to come in our Saltwater DevDiaries series. In the upcoming diaries, we'll dive deeper into details about the location, fish species, and new saltwater tackles. Fishing together with your friends on the same boat has been one of the most requested features ever! And we couldn't agree more. There's something truly special about navigating the ocean waters with your fellow anglers, developing a shared fishing strategy, and sharing in the experience while enjoying breathtaking sunsets. So get ready to see it all firsthand—we can't wait to show you more! Location Nestled in the East China Sea, close to the Japanese Archipelago, lies a picturesque gem known as Kaiji No Ri. This small island, embraced by the waves of the ocean, boasts an enchanting landscape that captivates the senses. With its beautiful views and serene atmosphere, Kaiji No Ri is a haven for anglers seeking both the thrill of the catch and the tranquility of nature's embrace. The new boats When it comes to ocean fishing, you'll need a sturdier vessel to tackle the waves. For now, you'll have two options at your disposal. You can opt to rent the Tsurihito™ Scutum™ Fishing Yacht, designed to accommodate two people onboard during the fishing together session. You and your friend can fish together using two rod holders each, while also holding an additional rod in your hands simultaneously. Alternatively, if you're the proud owner of the sleek Tsurihito™ Volans™ Fishing Yacht, you'll have the luxury of bringing along three additional friends. Hence, it will accommodate a maximum of 4 players onboard simultaneously for a Fishing Together adventure. Fishing Together If you're the host inviting friends, you'll be the Captain of the yacht. As Captain, you'll enjoy some cool bonuses, like getting to navigate the boat first or fast forward time for everyone onboard. However, with great power comes responsibility. You'll also be tasked with finding the best fishing spots and ensuring everyone has a great time. Your friends will receive the invitation and can accept it right away. However, it's important to ensure that the location is available for all the players, everyone has enough credits to cover the travel expenses to the island, licenses, and the cost of the stay. Just like in real life, it's all about planning ahead and making sure everyone is ready for the adventure. The first thing you would want to try is cruising around the island! The new map is going to be massive, offering plenty of space to explore. With dimensions of 20 by 20 kilometers, it covers an enormous area of 400 square kilometers. To put it into perspective, envision the size of all 24 existing maps in the game combined and then multiplied by at least 20 times. Plus, you'll have access to boats that are faster than the ones currently available in the game, making your cruising experience even more exhilarating. The view from both the captain's bridge and the lower deck is stunning. No matter where you are on the boat, you can always see each other and communicate easily in the Fishing Together chat. You'll have the freedom to switch places on the boat if there is at least one free spot, plus, the captain has the option to allow other players to take the wheel and navigate the yacht, adding an extra layer of teamwork. As you sail, you'll encounter various sights along the way, from regattas and ships to birds gracefully soaring overhead. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of dolphins or a huge whale swimming by! We will reveal more of those in the upcoming DevDiaries. All players aboard the yacht will experience the same time and weather conditions, which the host can select for the entire group. Additionally, the yacht will feature a storage space, eliminating the need for individual keepnets. Each angler onboard will have access to about 2000 kg of storage, ensuring ample room for everyone's catch. As the upcoming map will be significantly larger compared to all other locations currently available in the game, the exciting addition to the game will be special navigation buoys. These buoys can be strategically installed in preferred locations on the water, allowing for quick navigation to these spots with a simple click on the map. This feature will streamline the process of locating and accessing areas with abundant fish, helping anglers save time and maximize their fishing experience. Fish will dynamically move around the shores of the island based on various natural factors, presenting a challenge for anglers to locate them. To assist in this endeavor, players will have the opportunity to complete a special mission and receive a Saltwater Fish Finder as a reward. One more great thing about the Fishing Together feature is that every player earns additional XP for every fish caught when fishing with friends. If you're angling with your club mates, you receive extra XP for both club fishing and fishing together on one boat. And last for today’s Diary, but definitely not least, is a new fishing method. By casting your rods and placing them in the rod holders, then slowly moving the boat, you'll engage in trolling. This method involves dragging baits through the water to attract large ocean fish. To ensure an optimal trolling experience, the captain won't be able to ride the boat fast while the rods are cast. This restriction helps maintain a steady pace, ensuring the boat doesn't move too fast and disrupt the fishing process. There's nothing quite like the delight of fishing together with your friends aboard. Therefore, in the future, we are planning to expand the Fishing Together feature to all the Bass Boats in the game and you will be able to go fishing together with your friends in all the locations where Bass Boats are allowed. With shared experiences, a lovely backdrop, and the challenge to find fish on a huge ocean location, every moment promises to be fun. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming update, as we continue to unveil the new features that await you. Until then, happy fishing and tight lines! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Follow us on social media to stay tuned and be in touch with our lovely community: Our Forum Discord Facebook Group Steam Community You are always welcome to ask for help in our support: support@fishingplanet.com *All visual content in this DevDiary is crafted to showcase the upcoming features; however, there may be slight differences upon the actual release of the update
  24. Dear fellow Anglers, We're here to announce that the First Season of Club Leagues, the Icebreaking Angler Rivals, has drawn to a close. You can check out all the winners in the Leagues Tab within the game. Although there are too many to mention across various platforms in one post, their names will be marked in the Fishing Planet history. First and foremost, a huge congratulations to all the winners! We extend our gratitude to all who participated, as well as to the clubs that persevered until the very end. You have shown an impressive dedication, strength, and persistence. It’s been a long journey and we understand that the road hasn't been without its bumps. Throughout the season, we've been diligently gathering and forwarding your feedback to our developers. While we refrained from making mid-season adjustments, we carefully considered all of your comments, suggestions and ideas for future improvements. We deeply appreciate your willingness to share your opinions and help us enhance the game. Looking ahead, we've decided that a comprehensive overhaul of the Club Leagues feature is necessary. We intend to take the time to thoroughly review all your feedback and devise improvements in your gaming experience. Given that our primary focus at the moment is the upcoming ocean map, which we're eager to release as soon as possible knowing your excitement, we've made the decision to give the Club Leagues our undivided attention after the launch of the new map. We hope you'll stand with us on this decision, recognizing it as the best path forward for now. The Club Leagues will come back after the improvements that we will take care of while you’ll be enjoying Saltwater fishing. Regarding the new map, we sincerely appreciate your patience. Rest assured, we'll be providing a series of Dev Diaries detailing the features awaiting for you, starting with a focus on the Fishing Together feature in just a few days. Plus, mark your calendars! Today at 7:30 pm Central US Time, Fishing Planet’s Game Designer Andrii will be live on Bo Angel's YouTube channel, answering all your questions about the ocean map. Don't miss out! Thank you for your continued support. With the warmest regards, Fishing Planet Team
