As one who lives in the cold and water-logged city of Chicago, one does look at warm places every now and then just for happy thoughts :) Australia has been my go-to happy place.

Some brief little details would be as follows,  

-New Equipment: Rod, Reels, Baits, Terminal Tackle, and some Lures

 

 

-RODS-

1. RIVERTEX™ Salty Slaya' (Spinning Rod) (Deep Blue, White, Net Pattern)

-Length: 7'8

-Casting Weight: 2 1/4 Ounce - 6 3/4 Ounce | 63g - 190g

-Power: Medium

-Line Weight: 75 - 90 lbs | 34 - 40 kg

-Pieces: 1

-Guides: 8+1

2. RIVERTEX™ Deadset Dropper (Trolling Rod) (Black, Silver, Criss-Cross Pattern)

-Length: 11'3

-Casting Weight: 6 Ounce - 9 1/2 Ounce | 170g - 269g

-Power: X Heavy 

-Line Weight: 90 - 115 lbs |  40 - 52 kg

-Pieces: 1+1 

-Guides 14+1

 

 

-REELS-

1. RIVERTEX™ Exy 15000 (Spinning Reel) (Black, Silver, Honeycomb cutouts)

-Ratio: 4.9:1

-Recovery: 22" | 56cm

-Max Drag: 95.7lbs | 43.4kg

2. RIVERTEX™ Eddy 810 (Spinning Reel) (Deep Blue, Chrome)

-Ratio: 6.4:1

-Recovery: 29.5" | 75cm

-Max Drag: 115lbs | 52kg

-Ball Bearings 4+1

-Drag: Rear

 

-NEW BOAT-

Aluminum Saltwater Boats (Based off the "North River Boats: Seahawk Offshore SXL-Series)

A new type of boat would mean that deep(ish) water fishing out in the pacific ocean. I believe that a money making tradeoff for needing a boat for the deeper ocean fishing would mean that there would be an in-game pack containing the obvious new tackle and boat that comes with it, this would cost real money. There would also be a new boat in the in-game store that costs regular fishing planet currency.

Well there you have it guys! Remember, this is just an idea for the dev team. It was very fun to research and write this but TL;DR, An Australia map with some new fish species and new methods of fishing would be absolutely awesome!!!!!

I could definitely see those fitting in!

I did my best to add some new species but also not overload the entire place, although I guess they did that with South America and Africa. I'm open to any ideas, personally i'm not interested in small fish so i didn't do any research on them. 

If u have any other ideas lmk, would be a dream to add an oceanic map to Fishing Planet

Maybe add some more sharks and other fish would be awesome since we have only one shark species like maybe tiger shark, silky shark, reef sharks,nurse shark,oceanic whitetip shark, scalloped or smooth hammerhead sharks and thresher sharks. Maybe there could be some more unique fish too!

Honestly was thinking of adding some, but I didnt wanna go overboard with a bunch of new fishies. I think that tiger sharks are kind of a staple to Australia, (I THINK) and I can definitely modify the list of fish. 

 

P.S. I didnt even know some of these species of sharks so thank u for the ideas!!
