Losing XP from fish

The short answer: The red arrows indicate the tackle is too strong for the fish your catching, the number of arrows meaning 1 slightly 2 fairly 3 overly overpowered. To stop this use a lighter tackle setup.  When using a balanced setup (from weakest to strongest) the line (test) is matched to the reel(max drag), and the reel to the rod(line weight) so I'd say it was the setup.

(When using feeder/bottom tackle I have the leaders (test) slightly weaker than the lines test)

Hope this helps.

@Carpman99 Ah okay I had a big alli set up which followed the rule of rod to leader in terms of strength and was losing xp on peacock basses so I altered my line and it didnt change so I just thought that I'd ask! Thanks for the advice!

barbless hooks or barbless lures can boost +20% XP!
