  1. Already got the plaque. I just like to catch every fish on every lake, coz...why not? I have to grind 4 levels before I can go to the next lake anyway, might as well have some fun with it! Although it doesn't seem like much fun when you can't even get close.
  2. Has anyone caught a trophy or unique bream at the UK lake? I've got lots of young and one common, but nothing else. I can't find anything on youtube either.
  3. So why does my line break if I set max drag? Is it a bug? Has anyone else had this problem?
  4. It keeps happening. I've experimented with a few different things. It must be a bug. Thanks a lot guys.
  5. Max drag of my reel is 4.4lb and I was using 6lb line. I'm level 50 on the free version of Fishing Planet and have always used line that's stronger than my reel so I can set max drag settings. I've never had any problems. Going after the unique redear at Neherrin on The Fisherman, I broke my line on the first one I hooked. Is it a bug or is there something I'm not getting?
  6. So which do you think is the best? Spod, method or PVA? I don't mean the best for catching fish necessrily. I mean overall least hassle/expense etc. I can't be bothered to try all three and I don't know what one to go for.
  7. Hmm that's interesting. Im level 49 and have caught every fish so far without using groundbait, but I got the impression it was essential at the UK lake. They all just seem so rubbish though. The heaviest method feeder is too light for the heaviest carp rod (classic Fishing Planet), using a spod takes up a rod slot and PVA bags are single use only. If I can still catch every unique without it, I'd rather do that. I don't mind if it takes a bit longer.
  8. Which do you use for carp fishing and why? Method feeders seem like the least effort and expense, but I'd rather use something else if it's more effective.
  9. Does anyone have a link to a good youtube guide for carp fishing in the UK? I'm almost at level 50, but I haven't used a carp rod yet because I haven't needed one. I'm looking forward to trying something new, but I don't know anything about carp rods, spod rods, groundbaits, pva bags etc. There must be some good guides out there but I can't find anything that's really comprehensive.
  10. Does anyone else get this message? I get it a lot when I'm fishing for eels, but never any other time. Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong and how I can fix it? I've tried everything from a #2 to a #2/0 hook, so I don't think it's that. I don't like eel fishing, but I want to catch the unique in Germany. And this message is starting to get annoying...
  11. Is the Char Charger tourny held at Alaska? That would make sense, because I found the trophy single spoon and bullet spinner really bad for catching Chinook at Alaska and Cali. It still doesn't make sense to me.
  12. What are people's experiences with the trophy series lures? After completing a few missions, I now have the trophy casting spoon, single spoon, bullet spinner and frog popper. The frog popper was excellent - I caught the unique butterfly peacock bass at Florida with almost my first cast, after trying for days before with no luck. But the single spoon and bullet spinner don't work for me at all. It's not just that they're no better, they are actually worse. I get hardly any bites on them at all, and when I switch to the standard single spoon the fish start biting again. Has anyone else found the same thing, or is it just a coincidence or bad luck? It seems pointless to have a trophy series of lures that are less effective than the standard ones.
  13. UPDATE: Caught a unique the same day. If anyone else is having trouble with this mission...GET A BOAT! I don't think it's possible without one.
  14. UPDATE: So it seems some kind of boat is definitely essential. I'm catching more trophies from a kayak, even though I'm casting to basically the same spot. I just caught one that was 32.9lb...no joke. I feel like crying
  15. Thank you. I've tried all of that...the only thing I haven't tried yet is the combo of kayak and sunny day. If that doesn't work I'll officially give up!
