  1. Email the developer support@fishingplanet.com with the relevant information, Mac model, macOS version, platform (steam, native) there are some versions of the macOS that will not support native gameplay
  2. You may want to read previous posts about The fisherman, to get a historical perspective of why things are so. Just do a search. the quick answer is that The Fisherman updates are not controlled by the Developer (Fishing Planet) but by the publisher (BigBen).

    Server problem

    I think you need to be inside their data center to have a reasonable ping in this game. Your region doesn’t matter much. when it becomes difficult to play, I dont use spinning or casting rods, just bottom and float rods.
  4. You can land all sizes of all species of trout in that lake with a lightweight rod with fluorocarbon and a #1, #1/0 nano spinner or narrow spoon. alternatively use any insect bait or salmon eggs, with a float or feeder the fish list on that waterway tells you what baits you can use. You have many choices for that lake
  5. Natively, it is not possible. You can however run Windows if you have a dual boot Mac, or you can run windows using Parallels.
  6. The leaderboard is refreshed periodically. I believe it is weekly
  7. You need more than 1500 markers, for just 20 waterways? Are you designing a kayak slalom course on each one?
  8. I have never hooked a fish when a cayman is near my bobber, but that may be coincidence…..just saying
  9. If it doesn’t appear by the next day, it won’t. There are bugs in the game with this leaderboard and also with the fish that you have caught or remain to be caught when at a waterway. There are waterways where I have caught every species and size of fish and it does not highlight in bold.
  10. Best of luck with that big bass at emerald lake. Please write when you catch one there. I will gift you 100 baitcoins
  11. You have a different xbox live account associated with your Windows 10 PC. Follow these instructions to set up the gamertag account you want to use on the PC https://www.windowscentral.com/how-create-xbox-live-account-windows-10
  12. If you use the same Xbox gamertag to log in to the windows10 Xbox app and start the game, you will see your level transfer. Xbox and Win10 share the same playing environment. (Cross play is enabled)
  13. The answer is……..sunglasses from the home shop. The 230 baitcoin model should suffice to reduce glare.
  14. You shouldn’t compare this simulator to real fishing too strictly. In game, some things are implemented differently or not at all. As for your assumption that the fish hear the bell and swim away, that it not the case. There are many reasons why they may swim away, such as hook size, bait type, line/leader type, bobber depth, proximity, or simply RNG. FP have never stated that bell noise is a factor.
  15. There are several older posts that relate to competitions on this site. You can read these for a better understanding of the current state of affairs regarding competitions.
  16. Waterway levels and prestige levels are separate, and not additive. The game will not store or bank your prestige levels and add them to your waterway level after the max waterway level is increased. You must grind your waterway levels up to the current max, after which you can only increase your prestige level by further grinding. When the max level is increased again, your prestige level will remain the same, until you grind to the new max waterway level. When you do, you will then begin to increase your prestige level again.

    new lakes

    From a recent killerwhale interview with another player, It is likely that the next waterway will be on a new continent, possibly Asia or Africa, and may include saltwater species also
  18. He got the message because a 7GB updated dropped today, and he is a release behind
  19. I don’t know of a VPN service that I can recommend. I use my USA work VPN when I need to, even though I am currently located in Greece until September. I suggest you email support@fishingplanet.com with a link to this thread, as they may be able to provide you more info on their end with your session connection. They are likely to ask you questions regarding platform, router and other technical metrics to assist in their effort. Good luck
  20. What you are experiencing is worse than the average user, so there may be more factors involved. I experience game crashes or disconnects on Xbox but not as frequently as you. Lag may be constant for me but game crashes are less common, just several times per playing session. Putting a rod on a stand shouldn’t cause the game to quit or abort. Have you tried playing with a vpn to see if your experience is better?
  21. Poor ping and lag have been constant with this game from the beginning. It doesn’t matter what platform you are on. Some geographic locations have more lag than others, and some platforms have more than others, even on high speed internet. Some days are better and playing is tolerable, but I wouldn’t expect a fix any time soon. The problem would have been resolved if it was simple or low cost for FP.
  22. I hope they sponsor you soon. I am getting tired of the same old FP comps where the winner is predetermined.
  23. I have all the crankbaits and have tried that comp in all types of weather conditions. I have won it twice and also placed on the podium a few times, and I am of the belief that it makes little difference. If FP says it is your turn to win, you can play it with an oversized #6/0 crankbait and still win it. The prevailing wisdom says that #4/0 crankbait is the sweet spot for hook size, and the depth between 2.5m and 3.5m. As for colour, lighter for sunny and darker for cloudy, but these only apply only during regular farming. Just look at the past winners. The names seem to rotate. Not one consistent player. in fact it seems there are only a few comps that seem to have consistent high finishers, like jolly carp, and the barbel comp, and that is because I sense some players have found a mechanism exploit, to consistently finish well in that comp. all other comps seem to follow a rotating winner. I have fished that big red fish comp three times in a row with the same weather, using the same crankbaits, using the same markers and casting spot, and the disparity in results defy logic, so I think something else is in play with FP’s winner selection there. just my 2 cents.
  24. Nothing there…..That was just Jesus Christ walking on water
