Roach Spoon ???

Recommended Posts

I've had your luck before, you just have to keep travelling around I'm afraid. They come in the pumpkins though, not the tombstones. A couple years ago I was well into the second week of the event before I got the slimy crank. They should have left the option to buy the event lures individually in the shops for baitcoins like they were before along with the new option to buy a whole pack.

I don't need it but I haven't seen a roach spoon in 4 pumpkin runs either, good luck.

Lol.....I have 13 slimy cranks

Lol.....I have 108 roach spoons 😜

This is the first Halloween that tombstones are activated during the first week, so in the past unless you bought them for baitcoins some lures weren't available until week 2 of the event (blade spinner, slimy crank, skull jig, etc.). I haven't asked any of my friends, but I still haven't seen a roach spoon yet either so I can't say if they're even available yet, but they should be starting today if they weren't before.

I'm finished with the event but am still travelling everywhere just for kicks for a few more days, got 13 baitcoins twice so far, both times at BCI.

Spider spoon evades me too. Let's see how it goes this week. And yes actually I think yesterday I started getting bcs at some tombstones too. 

I haven't seen that yet this year either, also a pumpkin lure, or at least both of them were only from pumpkins before. Yesterdays reset didn't seem to change anything for me either, maybe today, I don't know.

4 days now visiting every lake and every pumpkin and tombstone, but not one roach spoon.

it is the only lure I need to finish the ghost pike mission. 
 

any tips?

 

The more I think about it I believe I did get the spider spoon once this year on the first or second set of pumpkins, maybe they're both just super rare for some reason. The spiders must be spawning though if Tonto only needs the roach spoon as well. 

BTW went everywhere again last night, still haven't seen the roach.

If those event lures could be traded, I'd share them. Need to free storage and tackle space. Still slowly catching ghost pike on the soft spider and and bony shad...1 more race to finish. Why am I doing this event when I seriously don't have room for all the event junk?   Oh yeah, bait coins.🙄

So 7 days into this event. Total of 252 loots.....and still no roach spoon.


15 slimy cranks

6 blade spinners.

11 spider spoons

30 bony shad

0........roach spoons

 

 

I emailed support questioning their probabilistic distribution of these lures, even doubting the existence of the roach spoon

Their response was....”We see nothing wrong”

Any idea what the Spanish moss is for as it takes up individual spaces in storage instead of just saying how many and only taking up one space. I hate chucking away anything only to find I need it later?

No use for Spanish moss (or rusted chains or bones) in any of the Halloween missions this year, it can also be obtained in Louisiana (as part of the Shore weed gathering mission).

Translation: The roach spoon has been nerfed in an attempt to induce more DLC purchases. 😉

This is my third year doing the Halloween event and in the previous two years I personally got more roach spoons than any other lure both times. I mentioned I currently have 108 but I had a lot more than that, I used the roach spoon to attempt the reel breaker challenge at one point (I don't think you lose your lure on the rod breaker one) so if it's "working as intended" then they had to have nerfed the spawn rate for them. They appear to be turned off completely though for a lot of players from what I've seen in some stream chats and in talking to other players.

I suppose there's still a chance that they'll just start popping up but I thought it would have been earlier in the week if it was going to happen, now I'm not so sure. I have plenty of cash so I'll keep going everywhere every day just to satisfy my own curiosity and will report back when/if I do finally get one. Good luck to everyone who still needs this lure, would be a shame to not be able to catch Frankie because of just one spoon.

Well.....They succeeded in making my wallet lighter by 99 bitcoins, just for the one lure I needed that they refused to make available in the loot drops.  
 

I wanted to put this event behind me, and move on to other things

finished the last 3 missions, and done with this event.

 

I suspect they will pull another fast one....for the Christmas event....if enough of us shelled out 99 coins for the Halloween lure pack

Yes same here, I am missing the Roach and Spider Spoon, and as well every day I have been travelling around all the locations checking the pumpkins. It is really frustrating. I see there is a premium Halloween pack for 19.99 that includes the Spider but the Roach Spoon I see no solution to get it except the pumpkins. Is this event only active on the original places? So there are no pumpkins, etc in the new ones, Blue Crab, peru for example?

think they will increase drop-rate of these spoon in last week / couple of days of the event. in previous events, they activated certain interacting features just for the last week only.

so i think we all will be flooded by roach and spider spoons soon, as we are now in crackbaits and others.

no spoons for me so far, don't need them, tho

There are pumpkins at blue crab but still only give the same rubbish, expensive travel for some maggots and piece of chain!

I refuse to drop the 99 coins for the DLC when all I need is the two lures, I concentrated on the sweet tooth challenge and ghostbuster  both give a Halloween rod as a reward.
