Fishing Planet Developer Diary - Mississippi: The Blue Crab Island

Recommended Posts

Hello, dear anglers, and welcome to the new entry of Fishing Planet Developer Diary!
Today we’ll tell you about our latest and perhaps most fascinating of all Fishing Planet waterways - Mississippi: the Blue Crab Island in the Gulf of Mexico!  Our team has been working on this new map for the past few months and we are happy to announce it should be released in a week or two.

This idyllic and picturesque island is actually a part of Mississippi and is located off the state’s coast in the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico. From the angling perspective, the coolest thing about this place is perhaps that the island is surrounded by both fresh and saltwater areas! This means that you’ll have the opportunity to catch both freshwater and saltwater fish species within the same angling destination!


What’s more, Blue Crab Island is the largest Fishing Planet waterway up-to-date, with an overall area encompassing 4km2 (1.54mi2). This destination is perfect for boat fishing, as the island itself is small and most of the angling will be done offshore. At the same time, the depth is hardly over 1.5m (5ft) in most areas.

Despite the waterway’s impressive size, there will be only two fishing locations available at this time. The first location is situated next to a large stilt house, right in the center of the waterway and is a great spot to start exploring both fresh and saltwater areas by boat.

The second location is on wooden docks in the middle of a freshwater bay, amidst natural wild scenery and black mangrove trees.

To recapture the atmosphere of this enchanting nature paradise as best we could, we added 2 types of mangrove trees: dwarf red mangroves in the saltwater area and tall black mangroves on the border of fresh and saltwater aquatorium.

You’ll also find dense thickets of sawgrass - abundantly covering the banks of many natural and man-made canals as well as countless little islets.

As far as weather and time of year are concerned, Blue Crab Island welcomes you with beautiful enchantment of early autumn, when the monsoon has already passed, and dry season hasn’t yet taken its reign. This gives us very interesting and diverse weather conditions: from heavy rains to scorching hot tropical sun. But more importantly, and much to any angler’s delight, practically all of the seawater fish species can be found in the northern part of the Mexican Gulf this time of year!

There’s a total of 20 fish species for you to catch in the waters of Blue Crab Island, with 4 of them appearing in the game for the first time! The ones particularly worth mentioning are probably every anlger’s dream: we’re talking about saltwater giants like Bonefish, Permit and the Southern Flounder!

Whereas in the freshwater area, you can take your chances against the monstrous Speckled Peacock Bass, the largest member of its kind, weighing over 10kg (22lb).

From an angler’s point of view, the saltwater area of Blue Crab Island is probably the most interesting. Aside from the above mentioned species, you can also catch some Red Drum, Striped Bass, Gafftopsail Catfish and huge Tarpon!

To make your fishing experience even more realistic and add to the overall ambience of the place, we introduced a number of unique anthropogenic objects:

1) a huge house with docks and boat hangar in the center of the waterway;

2) an old and abandoned power line on wooden poles alongside one of the canals;

3) a new power line on huge metal supports seen on the distant horizon;

4) small and shabby little shacks with old windmills scattered around the waterway;

5) old docks and wharfs;

6) modern windmills in the saltwater area of the waterway;

7) hangar-style boat houses with gas barrels.

Also, don't miss the opportunity to have fun watching plane flying around.

And to make your Blue Crab Island experience even more realistic, you can actually fish out unique objects and critters, like blue crabs themselves!:)
Have fun exploring and tight lines!

Looks fishy to me :) , hope the (tablet) Map is adjusted for the shallow water unlike the Weeping Willow (UK) map (0 - 21 m) which gives no detail of where the deeper parts are.

That's a ripoff not even worth wasting my money to go there

 

This is only preliminary information. Let's wait for the update, and then we will draw conclusions.

You expect us to grind to lvl 54 with the nerf to xp? That would be a joke and a waste of time for me. Im assuming you hoping we waste money on premuim to go for another grind. Not to mention ever update always has new bugs.

The deep spots are the dark blue areas on the tablet stupid

I have watched many streams of the new waterway, and I have to say that I am cautiously optimistic. I agree that the costs seem high. The repair on that new big net will be around $2000 per day. And only having 2 pegs, coupled with the lack of rodholders on boats, concerns me. It looks beautiful, and the new species seem interesting.

My main concern is that in the streams I have watched, it seems like all the testers parked at the same few spots (ie the half sunk barge). Hopefully there is more testing going on behind the scenes and not just early access for some.

There are no dark blue areas (Weeping Willow) at the waterway, the scale of the tablet map is incorrect for the water depth.

Is it possible to reduce the amount of amateur competitions? They are almost always canceled from the lack of competitors. At least on Xbox. Would love more opportunities to fish in them.
