Hello, anglers!
And we’re finally rolling out the much awaited feature of User Generated Competitions and much more!
User Generated Competitions

524bbb0dc70ef03f0e7c06cbc1e7008a13544dab

Now, you can create and customize competitive fishing events based on your own preferences, by fine-tuning and adjusting multiple event settings, including rules, locations, time schedules, participants and much more!

We designed a whole array of new tools to make it more comfortable for you to create and host just the perfect angling competitions and set numerous parameters to your preferences:

  • Use pre-existing templates or generate your fishing event from scratch!
  • Select the competition formats (free for all/team/duel) and privacy settings.
  • Set your own Entry Fee and Prize Pool.
  • Choose from multiple settings, including location, number of participants, player LVLs, duration, time, weather conditions, tackle, qualifying fish, etc...!

We’ll tell you in more detail here how these new competitions are going to look like in the game.


5d49df9703af7e21561a32e4bd34dbc8d5090ff8

A new Custom Competitions menu will be added to the game interface that’ll feature a convenient list of all the user competitors both available and already played.

New Complex Rigs with new types of terminal tackle:
Rigs. Yep, now you can use rigs with your spinning and casting rods: Texas Rig, California Rig. Three-way Rig and Flipping Rig- all to enhance your fishing experience!;)

Three-Way Rig
82da6293fce63dd6349d6949c54d378bc935676131ca792c4d1ae9fbed449b17ecf624dcf150bfca886dea3225ecdf5fd3d3d82cd46ce99e76117429

One of the most well-known and simplest rigs, the three way rig features a three-way swivel that has separate attachment points for the main line, sinker and the leader. Easy to set up, the three way rig provides smooth rotating and eliminates line twists. Particularly efficient for going after predators like Catfish, Trout, Pike or Bass.

Texas Rig
383c8fdada27c94a5697d8703510c255b973552078408264aec59d93be2e37587fb8f1bfcc3908ceaed606d16ac36da220074e3f215bc369fda5abaa

The Texas rig is one of the easiest and most effective ways to use soft plastic baits for bass fishing. Just slide some weights on the line, tie on a hook, thread on a soft plastic bait, like a plastic worm, tube or craw and you’re ready to catch some big bad bass!
Carolina Rig

de13b794b6e70f9c0ca463aa3ffe51d4bf6b0a906c98a84568c8227f4a84eca89ad090c5f4d325fdfebbac6e9b21a87222c037620787f14c895482ed

The Carolina rig is a super effective plastic bait rig that is especially perfect for going after bottom feeding fish and fish like bass. In this rig setup, the weight is fixed above the hook, and can be used with a number of soft plastic baits, like worms, craws or tubes. The Carolina rig is suitable for beginner anglers.

Tear Drop and Bullet Sinkers

Tear Drop:

84767fe6128a1a4da3a5673f9d75e724d16ffd43d24336cc05364644ef12216b08607fc10a9fbdca5627d666c9e5e0209acf1592e36ac889d2926b88

High-quality sinkers that are designed for use with jig rigs for spin fishing. These sinkers are one of the most popular choices among anglers.

Tails
03ab7ccbba7277a921c1839029761f16fc7483d96f93664f8005551d96f1fe9089768121d67a1d9d73bd07265217c301868da62feb4f4d573a84f703

An extremely efficient enhancement for lures such as spinners and spinnerbaits, Tails deliver superb flashing baitfish imitation, making them irresistible for predatory fish like Pike and Muskies.

I find it very interesting that all the changes made are very detailed EXCEPT for the details about the "New Bite System". This is deceiving, and is obviously something that will negatively effect our game play. It has made it too hard and boring to enjoy. Cast into a mess of spawning fish and get zero bites - or 1 bite that takes 5 minutes to finally strike. This game is already expensive enough, now we can't even catch half the fish we did a few days ago. News just casually mentions  this change.. like we wouldn't notice? Many of us will leave if this continues.

Well, I've been playing this game for a long time and in my opinion it has never been as bad as it is now. This new patch has done away with fish bites in Alaska. Since the patch was released I never filled my net. The game is very boring, I spend more time looking at the landscape than fighting with the fish. It comes to give me sleep! I would like the game to be as it was before, it was more fun.

I don't know if the idea of making this change came from the developers or the players request, but whatever they tried to do went wrong. Maybe they tried to make the game more realistic, and it's OK to try it! But you can not forget that it is still a game, and that being fun is more important than being realistic.

Anyway, I don't want to offend anyone or downplay the work done, however, I have to be honest and give you feedback on a change made in the game.

That's it, I hope somehow the feedback can help you improve the game.

Would recommend it for being a well developed and well detailed game. However, support has to acknowledge its errors. 
Stop blaming the players, especially experienced players who play for a long time, accept the tips and correct their mistakes.
Nerf in the game shows development incoherence; Increasing fish stamina above what the equipment can handle, completely impairs gameplay, that's a big mistake; 
Having bottom fishing tackle above 21kg, and a leader of only 19.5kg does not justify, makes such gear impotential. Remember, we don't have a tugboat to drag these fish. 
The equipment that the game offers has become useless in the face of the abusive increase in fish stamina. 
Be more coherent and correct stamina by matching the equipment the game has, We can no longer drag the fish with the strongest brutus, absurd what they did. 
We are no longer getting the fish out with float fishing equipment, this change has killed float fishing equipment. Not even bottom fishing tackles are getting the fish out. 
The delay is absurd to be able to drag the fish, not in real life and no other game is like this. 
Where are the fish, you have nerfed the maps, reduced the amount of fish by 20%. Your greatly reduced the catch of the unique fish.
When you correct the items mentioned, I change my assessment. I moved today to not recommended after much stress in catching and attempting to pull fish.
Bad idea the increase of stamina absurdly, you lost track of the game. A game is for our enjoyment, not to cause more stress.
Here's the tip.

"New bite system" means that a new fish AI from European waterways has been implemented at all waterways of North America. I personally do not see this as a problem. Have you ever fishing in Europe? Now the hunt for fish became much more fun!😄

how can you say this is better and more fun,when i come on i want to catch fish not sit there and stare at the water,i'm not trying to be an a-hole or anything but i've supported you guys since 2015 and can't believe that anybody thinks this is a better setup.now we have to level up to level 55,i've been on for a few hours and only got like 3500 xp,how can you level up when hardly catching fish or the fish you catch are just regular fish.if a guy comes on for an hour and you catch a fish or 2 then you have to try and find where the fish are again,this is a game you guys are making it from fun to frustrating and like i said people had no problems paying for the premium every year to help keep the game going.this was my favorite GAME,i would come on an hour before i went to work trying to catch a uni rainbow trout back in the days and then when i came home i couldn't wait to get on the game again but now i just want to smash the game.maybe you guys can figure out another system so that the fish spawn at the uni times and after that hour let them move however you have it now so guys that want to catch big fish can and go after the fish they want to hunt down and all the info that's out there can still be used.one more thing why are the fish smaller now too,i've been trying to catch a 71 pound clear muskie but now it looks like the biggest is 65 pounds now on the leader boards.bring the uni's back like they were and you'll get my premium money every year and i'm sure there's alot of other people out there that feel the same way

I just expressed my own opinion. You expressed yours. And it, without a doubt, will be taken into account. It's already taken, because bite rate in american waterways is already changed upward.

hi dimsam i was watching the interview with killer whale and warmaster101 and i couldn't really understand what he said,i think he said that he realizes that the player doesn't want to look around for fish he wants to just catch fish so is he gonna change the bite system or say kind of get it back to the way it was,is that correct,and thanks for all the other answers you gave me

I guess it was not a question of returning to the previous bite system, just the new system will be more “responsive” to the players. At least, as I understand it.

this was my favorite GAME,i would come on an hour before i went to work trying to catch a uni rainbow trout back in the days and then when i came home i couldn't wait to get on the game again but now i just want to smash the game

Why on earth would you want to catch fish at 9:35 and of course you have to be on hook #6/0?? :D

With the new system this game got even better now and overall it finally starting to make some sense for a change tbh.  PRO mode would make mega changes without messing about whole game and loosing those who don't want to catch 9:35 uni's :D

P.S. I know I said it before, but this would solved a lot of problems...

Is it intentional that on rods you have a bite on but can't currently tend to, even the tiniest fish can break pretty strong leaders? You used to only lose your bait when you were unable to get to that rod in time, now your bait hook and leader are all lost. Getting annoying very quickly.

same here put rod down to bring in other rod and i loose all my stuff before i can go back to reel in fish because it takes 15 minutes to get fish in lost sinker hook and bait,also when i buy bait it will only give me 10 and the rest is getting sent home,this never happened either

tell me how it's better,all you catch is regular fish now and every once in a while you get a trophy or uni. but you go to michigan try and catch some good size muskie and tell me how this is better unless you come on to look at the scenery and don't care what fish you catch,if i have an hour to kill and come on here and want to catch a certain fish i could but now basically they nerfed the fish hardly anymore big fish on lakes so i don't know how you can say it's better unless you haven't leveled up and you only have a few hours in game because after the grind and you want to come on to fish i don't think you're gonna like catching a 15 pound clear muskie when you could be catching a 70 pounder so how is it better.
