What does this display mean?


Recommended Posts

I believe it usually appears when the internet connection is not good (slow, high error rate etc), the problem could be anywhere between your PS and the FP servers. Stopping and restarting the game, a system reset or try accessing the game at a later time are options possibly worth considering.

Yes. What carpman says.

The other explanation is that your previous generation PS4 console cannot adequately support the connectivity requirements of the current release of FP.

I have two Xbox consoles which use the same internet connection for FP.

My Xbox series X never sees the connectivity icon you mention, but my Xbox one X frequently does.

To fix this issue, does it help to connect to a Private Room vs a Public Room?

Also, does connection issue also affect bite rate?  I run into this issue on occasion, especially during Special Events.  Things seem to slow down considerably although I am still connected.

…my follow up observations to your questions.


I have seen it happen less when in a private room but not enough to bother with changing to private as I don’t care much about the issue when grinding.

in comps it is unavoidable, as it always happens since you are in a common lobby.

I dont notice a difference in the bite rate, but definitely a reduction in the amount of fish you can hook, especially if the fish is biting when the connection icon is also displayed.  The lag that occurs affects the timing of your strike, or the ability to sense a bite happening
