Saving a Fishing Rod Case setup


Recommended Posts

Is there anyway you can save your fishing rod setup  for a certain rod case.....

When I change rod cases , I  loose the set up and have to redo again....

 

ex.  2 rod holder for carp  .... 2 rods are set up for carp fishing only......

then change to 5 rod holder  all ready set up , rods ,reel and line.....

 

 

My the fish be with you....,   :D

Please conceder it again. It’s such a great idea! Especially for comps so we can narrow down our equipment focused on the particular compitition requirements, please! Would rather travel light with a go bag for <insert target fish here> and not have to drag along unnessary stuff that might be damaged. You’ve all see those monkey baggage handlers at the airport that don’t give a damm regarding expensive equipment. >:(

What is safe to stop using your equipment??? What's a good cut off point. My 4 rods and reels are down to 85%, 80% on cpl. How long can you let it go down before it gets dangerous???? You know I dont wanna break my rod or any reels. Please help. I was gunna stop fishing at 75%, but who knows?????? Help

I repair rods and reels after each trip, but I let the line go to around 10%.  I've chatted with some who take line down to half that.

My assumption is that all equipment can be used to as low a percentage as you are comfortable going, and my experience indicates that the less damaged the equipment, the less expensive the repair bill.

That sounds like a great idea .vs taking the hit all at one time. For example, a 440 fishhut can be $8000+ to repair if you let it go to long (couple of trips will do it). Rather enter a comp or 2-3 day trip with some ingerity in my rigs.

Just noticed that even some lines in the backpack have reduced durability. Why is that?

The lines degrade just like the equipment.  In game options you can choose to show the wear on line, rod and reel by using the pro tackle load indicator.  I generally use the line until about 10%.  Note... floats also degrade, but cannot be repaired.  One credit-saving tip not often considered - keep your old equipment and use it for the appropriate locations and species.  The less expensive equipment is also less expensive to repair, not to mention the XP hit you take for using rod, reel and line too heavy for the species you're fishing for.  I still use the Omni Float and the Value Spin, as well as fish cabin and fish fort keep nets...

DEVS  .....    Any Progress on this idea  

It would be a great addition to the game  ,    I might keep some of the  rod cases when  I buy the special DLC  packages.

   FISHERMAN    please response if you agree  and would like this added to the game.

 

Thanks
