    I can access the game normally (on PC).

    Got it working by uninstalling and reinstalling. Then decided any game that gets literally zero response from it's support team and attempts to reskin the same game and sell it twice, should stay uninstalled.

    Why do you need more powerful leaders if you have enough of those that are already there? I foresee the question of carp leaders. The fact is that IRL the most powerful leaders are carp too. Another thing, IRL you can easily equip a bottom rod with a carp leader. BTW, IRL you can do everything you want at all. For example, you can fish using usual thread with a hook made from paper clip and a float made from goose feather. But in the game you can not equip bottom rod with boilies and pellets, as carp leaders also. These are just the rules of the game. The developers decided that it should be that way. If they decide otherwise, it will be different.

    Do not agree at all. If you know right spots and have properly tuned tackle, you may also earn game currency and XP in Michigan, Alaska, Alberta, Louisiana, Florida, Germany, Russia, even Italy. 

    Lol, I can name many leaders, in real life that far surpass Carp leaders. Nobody outside of EU fishes for Carp, other than with dynamite or bows. You speak with no knowledge. As far as XP, you are wrong on many counts. If your actually played as much as you posted, you'd know that. Currently their are only 3 real XP and Currency meta's to max efficiency. The best is still probably Sturgeon in California, but it's closely followed by Carp in England because of the number of trophies and Uniques available. The other, which many champion as equal is Musky in Michigan, but it far pales in comparison to the other two due to weather, it's amazing on sunny days, but cannot compare in any other weather. All this is besides the point, the main point is, why have bottom rods and reels capable of 59 pound drag with a leader only capable of 43 pounds? Is it so we hopelessly fight Clear Musky for 20 real life minutes, while feeling some moral superiority due to "the challenge." Ridiculous. Those who want a challenge can grab a jigwinner and hunt bass in Florida, downgrading gear is always ones choice. Clicking the space bar for hours, with the most upgraded gear in the game is droll and frankly silly.

    You ignored my question. 
    I didn't ask what you can do with existing leaders I asked why we don't have higher test mono leaders even tho carp setups do have leaders up to 25kg. 
    So why are mono leaders missing this option if setups using those leaders go up to 27kg?

    100% otherwise, why have rods capable of handling much higher weight? It's wasted without a stronger leader. Which is why Carp fishing becomes the best, consistent form of XP grabbing, post level 50. It's close in money too, because you have Trophies and Uniques, 4-6 a gaming day that can be hauled in fast with superior carp rigs. Sturgeon is still better, for cash because it costs next to nothing, but it's debatable if you find an efficient system on Weeping Willow. No reason to fish anywhere else other than California and England if max money and XP is the goal. It's a tiny tweak, but a much needed one to give bigger leaders to non carp rigs.

    use the Ambusher 8500 so you can gain more power from your equipment, with the 9500 you can't use at full power causing your equipment not to use its maximum power capacity.

    if you prefer to use the Kraken 9000 and it might be even better.

    Even if your equipment is not assembled correctly, it would be able to bring the fish faster.

    Excellent info, confirming what my assumptions were. I've never actually maxed drag on a reel, is that possible with a perfect rig? Kraken 8000 has become my go to for heavy bottom as it has micro drag adjustments and can be set at 1 click off max for a well rounded rig.

  5. Theskeindhu, Steam. 24 and 25 September. Multiple bugs found which repeated themselves twice on two different gaming sessions. The first manifest with time stopping on the game clock. No bites, no time moving, stuck on the same time. Chat still working. Exited to menu and back to game, all rods got bites and time worked. Upon striking the reel wouldn't reel at all, on all 4 rods. Exited to menu and back, didn't fix the problem. Eventually it began to feel and then the second error I was unable to keep the fish, clicking "keep fish" was locked with no response. This happened on two separate occasions. Both times a hard reset seemed to fix the problem. 


    Effects on gameplay, aside irritation and having to reset/quit to desktop included losing all Spod that was already out and having to remix and cast Spod wasting valuable in game resources. 

  6. Tried that, thanks though. No mouse to click the X, the mouse icon isn't available on the chat.

    On the PC you can either select the tab for the main chat window or there is a X in the top right corner to close that conversation window taking you back to main chat window. Maybe it is the same for the Mac.

    Top fish FP rating is not eternal, leaderboards are updated every week. Therefore, your fish may disappear from there after some time.

    They are off "my fish" as well. In the case of Lake trout, the game isn't even recognizing I've caught a Unique (I've caught several, with SS's on at least one). In the case of Striped Bass, it was the number 2 fish on the leaderboards and now it's just gone, not in my fish, not on the leaderboard.

    Specify your question, please. Am I right that you're asking about the differences in using and working carp and other regular groundbaits on US waterways?

    Yes, I was asking whether or not groundbaits and feed had any difference on US waterways. The question was answered by Carpman sufficiently.

  9. Lol, lines as in groups. As in are you aware of our Oakley line of products. For reels there is the Ambusher line and the Griffon/Kraken line, at higher levels. If it's easier, is the Kraken 8000 a better reel for the Cat Boxer 7'10 or the Ambusher 9000?

  10. X series 16' 6/0 crank just outside the strike zone, speed 3 stop then speed 1. Nailed quite a few with that and Rainbow 6/0 Spinner, speed 2 stop and go. Also the 8' lemon 6/0 crank using the same crank method. 

  11. Am I correct in assuming the Kraken to Griffon spod line is better for horsing in bigger fish due to higher recovery rate? Especially assuming my current leader max is 43 pounds? Specifically talking about bottom rods Cat boxer 7' 10 and on.
