  1. Has anyone caught one? I can't find it anywhere.
  2. Has anyone caught one? Can't find it anywhere.
  3. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Has anyone else had this problem?
  4. Anybody caught one? I knew it would be rare, but this is ridiculous...
  5. I'm at level 60...I've caught every fish of every size at every lake...completed every mission...and I can't even level up ready for the new update until they release it. What can I do to keep the game fun? It just feels a bit dead to me now.
  6. Well would you look at that... Thanks man!
  7. You're kidding me? The last time I checked, 2 or 3 months ago, people were only catching them by mistake when going after bigger fish. And even then they were ridiculously rare. Are you telling me they bite just like any other fish now? In the standard blackfish spot?
  8. I wish I knew how or why they do that. That buffalo spot is definitely dead for me at least. I first tried it 3 or 4 months ago and eventually gave up. I went back because it was the only fish in the game I hadn't caught (apart from the trophy blackfish at Alaska, but I give up on that one), and I had exactly the same problem. 12 days and no uniques. And it was on 2 different PCs, so it really makes no sense at all. The only other time I've had a similar problem was when I had to catch a unique muskie with a shad for a mission. I tried for 14 days before I realised the game wouldn't let me do it without a boat. When I got a boat I caught it in about 15 minutes. That was incredibly annoying, and I don't agree with it, but at least I understand it. Killing uni spots for some people but not others - I don't understand that at all.
  9. Same spot, later the same day...
  10. That's the thing - I've seen the youtube clips as well and I copied everything they did. But I didn't get any uniques in 14 days - just a thousand trophies. I eventually caught it at upside down - near the warmouth spot! Somebody caught one while I was on the map and shared his mark with me. He caught it by mistake while fishing for warmouth. Took me less than 2 hours game time to catch it. No small ones or trophies first - just a load of bass and then suddenly a uni buffalo. Really odd. They must have killed the old spot. I caught my uni channel at the same place I caught the uni flathead. In the hole to the right at swampy open space.
  11. Peas, corn, sweet peas, sweet corn, night crawlers, blood worms. I've caught what feels like hundreds of trophies but no unique. Fishing peak times in all weather types. No idea what I'm doing wrong.
  12. Anyone else having trouble with this? It's the only fish on the game I can't catch!
  13. If the leader is bitten off, a message comes up on the screen saying so. I've had both happen to me. I've had leaders bitten off because I forgot to equip a titanium leader, which fair enough was my fault. But I also once had a leader break for no reason at all. That was annoying.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. So why does my line break if I set max drag? Is it a bug? Has anyone else had this problem?
  17. It keeps happening. I've experimented with a few different things. It must be a bug. Thanks a lot guys.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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...
