So fished all morning at Emerald Lake searching for the best trophy yellow perch. Rules state that you can use a kayak but you have to fish from the bank no big deal rented a kayak went across the lake jumped on the bank and was tearing them up. Competition started placed me back on the dock no kayaks to rent! I catch trophy yellow perch at the dock all the time and the whole tournament only caught like 6 small ones. Competition is broke and as far as I'm concerned it seems rigged. Folks pulling trophy after trophy after trophy when normal game physics it's not possible at this location to catch a yellow perch trophy every cast. I'm done with competitions. There's my rant it is over with have a nice day!

How much different are they? I'm genuinely interested if there is some info about it, because online I found people saying everything from them being completely different to the same if you find same weather. From my own observations I feel like main difference is bite rate, which is noticeably higher in some cases.

Regarding the Kayak.

The rented Kayaks are rented for ONE ingame day. And the event is always starting you off in a new day.

You might for example have practicing for 7 days, showing day 7/7 in the top left corner. Once you enter the comp it will say day 1/7, and there for the rented kayak should be gone.

 

However, the issue you're describing with a new one not showing up at the dock MIGHT have something to do with a similar bug me and others have encountered in Michigan, where we have anchored the kayak at the "old floatdock" and then switched pegs. And when we go back to the "new Kayak dock", the kayak is not there, it's still anchored out by the "old floatdock".

My friend came into the competition and did not rent a kayak and it was not there for him either also I'm not able to dock at the old broken dock across the lake it won't let me exit my kayak and walk the bank on that side only on the Rock side. Also a felon told me last night he entered the competition and The Kayaks were not there and he had not been on that map. Before the update I was able to exit my kayak and walk the bank at the old dock but now I cannot I can only anchor there.

unfortunately you are so right about the competitions being broken. sadly the last few i have entered someone always catches 40 fish in the first 10 seconds. it's gotten way out of hand on every challenge

the cheating only gets worse and worse. the crappie tournament was a joke. the top 20 everyday caught 20 trophies. i'm level 50 and fish all day everyday as i'm handicapped with nothing else to do. it's impossible to catch what these people are catching every event without cheating. i keep hoping fishing planet will do something but it's apparent they will not.

20 trophy can be taken no cheating. The top players had good size to go with it.

Q3 last night all 20 fish in my net trophy, my place when finished 60+. My place when Q3 ended i havent checked but probably in the 100+ . Enough practice to know what, where, when works for me but not enough practice to know what would of influenced a few larger ones for a couple of extra pounds to qualify. These people some by luck but most by practicing to get a better outcome. You say you play alot but how long did you play just that day weather etc fishing souly just for the crappie? There have been problems with multi accounts which devs did act on last few tourneys, but the scores are real no cheating or hacking for more fish or bigger fish

How many youtube clips show hacks that work? Play more learn more and you will understand. Then think about the clans that compete and you see on board each time, not just 1 persons knowledge and skill practicing but 5 10 20 all working out what is best. 20 go in 3 go through then same example for other qualifiers 9 out of 20 in semis (HACKERS) no just 9 people that spent time and got the lucky weights on the day. If they where hacking why didnt all 20 go thru? Do you see what im saying.

Firewalker1946 is right. Competitions ARE broken. I'm not level 50 yet, and from a new player standpoint, what's the point? If you don't have an HONEST chance at winning a tourney or competition, why bother even entering? And... if the game owners don't care enough to stop the cheating, then are they a company I want to invest my time and money with?

Here are some of my thoughts on the competitions. I practiced for Triple the Trout at White Moose Lake for two days (same weather and time as the actual competition). Each time I got Unique Lake Trout, Unique Splake, several trophies and a bunch of common ones (I didn't keep exact count).

 

During the competition this was my exact result: 10 * Lake Trout, 1 * Trophy Atlantic Salmon, 2 * Atlantic Salmon (only Trout scored points).

I found this discrepancy strange and decided to try another practice round and keep score.  I used the same gear, spots and weather / time as the competition.

This was the outcome: 1 * Unique Lake Trout, 1 Unique Splake, 2 * Trophy Lake Trout, 1 * Trophy Splake, 7 * Lake Trout, 1 * Splake, 1 * Trophy Atlantic Salmon, 3 * Atlantic Salmon

 

I don't intent to compare myself with people which have invested money in Premium, DLC and thousands of hours in the game. But for the competitions to at least appear fair, I think I should be able to get similar results both in practice and in the actual competition.

 

Thanks.

Hi everyone, just my two cents. I'm quite noob at comps, have never had premium nor bought a dlc, member of no clan. Still I've won a couple and usually place in top 20 in most comps I get to join, often top 10.

Sometimes I do wonder how the ones at the top have so much success while I'm struggling but then I chat, ask around, try different things on my own and with work every time I tend to do better.

It really doesn't seem to me that there's any kind of rigging. Sometimes people have more time or more info or acquired the appropriate gear.

Don't give up, I arrived late to the comp aspect but it's so motivating and fun I wish I'd started from earlier.

Sorry if I'm intruding. Always the same old stories, every time a newbie arrives he says they are rigged. If you want to compete you have to play a lot, study, take notes, start with amateur competitions. Let's face it, you would like to arrive, never made one, and win. But what do you do in real life?

I don't claim that they're 'rigged'.   I simply mean that it's a fixed scenario.   Once you figure out whatever exact thing works in that competition, you simply repeat it.  

This is nothing like real fishing competitions - where the scenario is unknown, or 'random'.   Each competitor would have to figure it out.   In FP, we simply repeat whatever works on that competition. 

Of course it looks rigged - some people have the answer already. 

The solution is simply to make each Competition occur at a random time, weather, 'heat level', etc.  Then everybody is figuring it out at the same time, each time.

I'll respectfully disagree, 25/08/2020, with feeder.

Ok, 2 solutions lol.    The point is that it's the same conditions (and fish locations) every time.  That makes it simply a matter of looking up whatever works for that competition, and doing it.   Those that try to actually 'fish it' are not going to succeed until they stumble across it, while the others are simply repeating the solution to the puzzle.

Sorry to break it to you buddy but I wish it was that easy. Next time, same weather, same comp, I finished #58.

Because somebody else was using a more 'optimal solution'.   That solution is on YouTube somewhere, because it's simply a puzzle to solve.   Each time you run it, you run the same solution.
