I'm paralysed. Devs please read.

Must have happened a dozen times now, I finish a retrieve or simply reel in my bait on St Croix and I simply can't do anything.

I can't move my rod, I can't set up an aimed cast, I can't cast normally. The game doesn't freeze but my character does.

Fortunately, pressing the Options button to go to the map screen and then pressing it again to resume is a fix, but until tonight I've never experienced this before.

Anyone else, or just me?

Ok, sorry for the double post. I tried the bug reporting thread and my phone tells me I don't have an email client installed when I click the link.

Technology..

After checking with the guys in my room it appears that the freezing issue only happens while using the chatbox. I stopped several retrieves halfway through to reply to people, and upon resuming the rod is frozen in position. I can finish the retrieve but then cannot move or cast again unless I hit the options button and then go back in.

This is the first time I've seen this and until I started chatting there was no issue.

Hegert, can you bring this to their attention please? I'm in the UK and the other guys are in the USA and we have the same issue.

Anything new on this? The issue is still there, and seems to be getting worse. I now get "paralysed" after fast-reeling in by holding X. Plus, I don't know how to fix it, other than restarting the game. Respawning, changing chat rooms, changing rods, changing lures, opening and closing chat.. nothing works.

About 1/2 the time you can get it to go away by pressing in the right joystick(R3) which changes the type of cast you're going to make. Inconvenient to have to toggle through but not as bad as restarting.

Cool thanks mate. I'll give that a try next time. Much appreciated!

Why is this still an issue almost 2 months later?

It isn't just me, everyone I chat with on Michigan experiences the same.

Devs can put all that effort into giving us trash to catch but not into fixing a very annoying bug?

How to recreate: Go to Michigan on a PS4, start fishing, chat to someone and then realise you can't move until you press options to go to menu and back. And if you have a float out and then hook a fish, you can only play it with the rod pointing at whatever angle it was when you started chatting - not good when it's a big fish.

Repeat that everytime you get asked a question and you'll soon see how annoying it gets.

You surely can't give us the 'working as intended' line on this issue?

You encourage communication between players ( and rightly so ), but this is one bug that needs fixing. I'm less inclined to chat and help people when doing so impacts on my own fishing. I find myself giving them more info than they may want just to avoid freezing out when I get all the usual questions.

Kinda similar, in the Midnight Salmon comp last night I pressed x to discard some pondweed. After that I couldn't turn left or right. I could move but not turn. Had to restart to fix.

This disease is slowly spreading, I was stuck a bunch of times last week in Missouri and then in Alberta after that. I don't know about chatting, but for the situations I quoted above, try L2, R2, L2. Worked for me the last few times I got stuck.

Perhaps I should have mentioned that this was the first time it happened to me, 2 months to the day now since this thread was started. I only fished for an hour last night, but it happened again after discarding some weeds in North Carolina.

Could someone maybe acknowledge that you're looking into this?

I only see replies from members here and it's obviously getting worse. It may happen more often when chatting, but is not limited to chatting or location as I've experienced it on all three waterways that I've been to over this past week just by reeling in my line.

So, I guess it's heads in the sand and hope we go away.

Hard to believe this is still happening after all this time without even so much as an acknowledgement. I've just come from Michigan and it was absolutely rampant - every comment resulted in a freeze.

They can take the time to put crayfish and boots in ( which nobody asked for ), but not fix a widely reported issue, or even give us the industry standard " we're aware and working on it "?

Options and Options again  is quicker.

If your float is in the water and you hook a fish, you're in for a painful fight. Just better off holding R2 and doing something else.

I wouldn't mind so much if they said they were working on it or suchlike, but we have zip.

I spent this evening in Florida and it didn't happen once ( although I did see someone mention it last night in Florida ).

The simple fact is, I first brought this up nearly 3 months ago and so far I haven't had a single response. The devs do read this forum, as evidenced by their posts here, but on this issue..not a word.

Why should we be finding fixes for their ineptitude? I currently have all rods locked in home storage. I can move or sell reels, bait and tackle, but not rods. Restarted, closed app and restarted, nope.

They want us to chat and share info, I fully agree with that. But when chatting freezes your game and you don't hear anything nearly 3 months later...well.
