  1. Yes, the ability to create solo events where you can recreate the competitions times and conditions would provide another avenue for people to try out different scenarios (short version : good idea)
  2. There is a option to do this (from Inventory), select SPORT, select CUSTOM COMPETITIONS, select the CREATE button and select the two crossed fishing rods under the Format option (then fill in the required details), the rewards aren't great (yet, if ever) but it could be a good option for practicing other competitions. HTH.
  3. The answer to your question is yes, many people have managed to get out of debt. You'll get $3000 just for logging in four (real life) days in a row. Always try to use an Advanced licence so you can pick and choose which fish (barring a couple) you want to keep. Buy an Unlimited Advanced licence for Lonestar as backup insurance should you find yourself in the same position again. Do not sell or bin your old setups until your satisfied with your new tackle and always have a backup spinning setup sitting at home. Also suggest keeping different sized keepnets for different waterways (a small one for Lonestar, medium for the Everglades and a large one for Michigan for example). Once you're out of debt suggest saving up for good spinning outfit and a couple of different coloured narrowspoons #1/0's(as suggested before) and then taking a trip to either Rocky (for the trout) or Emerald (for the night time Walleye) to get some money back in your account (using lures is cheaper than bait when money is low IMO). HTH.
  4. You could spend a few of those baitcoins on a unlimited advanced licence for Lonestar (think it costs about eight). The spotted bass are the easiest to catch high paying fish (around $100 ) in that waterway.
  5. You were using a Titanium leader ? Large Pike and Muskie stalk that area.
  6. Fishing with a Basic licence has it problems due to the requirements imposed (no fishing at night or from a boat, no keeping of trophies or uniques and also having to keep some fish which are considered pests being among them), if your line keeps breaking then your drag is set to high. Best bet would be to use something like a Valuespin rod, a suitable spinning reel and some 7g (1/4 oz) narrowspoon 1/0 lures on Bass at Lonestar fishing the peak times (leaving and returning to the waterway if required - no travel cost), should be around 80 fish. Do not exchange the baitcoins for credits as it's a total waste. You need to try and balance your setups Rod (strongest, line weight) => Reel (max drag - should be equal or slightly lower than the rods max line weight) => Line (test - equal or slightly less than the Reels max drag) and the leader (weakest, if being used) should be equal or slightly less than the Lines test. Also make sure that the lure or casting weights you are using are not too heavy for the rod you are using, you should get a warning message. You could also buy a DLC pack, the Lucky Start pack seemed to be the cheapest and included $10,000 credits (not all DLC comes with credits, be sure to check) HTH.
  7. (I believe) Any purchase or sale involving baitcoins should have a confirmation prompt before being actioned.
  8. The PC version is working normally.
  9. YW, (from the Inventory screen click on your game name, scroll down the Challenges column until you find the Night Shift challenge, place your cursor over the challenge to see how many more fish are required).
  10. You'll need to obtain a cap with a flashlight first, easiest one to get is by fishing at night (9pm - 5 am), catch 100 fish at night (the Night Shift (I/II/III) achievement). A couple of other caps with lights are available either though events (catching lots of Crystal Burbot during Christmas at White Moose) or buying a DLC pack which has a cap with flashlight included. HTH.
  11. The Fields of Gold spawn point is the closest to the present, looking at the water, turn right and travel until you find a bridge walkway, cross the bridge and follow path until you find another bridge. The present is on the other side of the bridge (easier to use a power boat to get there IMO) .

    The fireworks are used at White Moose, Alberta. One person sets off a firework (F on PC, action1 for Xbox (I think) to select firework, LMB (right trigger) to set down) while others already have their baits/lures in the water. Use the right bait/lures(narrowspoons, crankbaits, small minnows and shiners all work) and you'll get lots of Christmas fish. Note : If no one is around you can use a rod stand to cast out your lines before setting off the firework. HTH.
  13. Thank you for the locations of the stockings. I didn't see anywhere I could reply.🙂
