Hey everyone,

Thanks to take the time to read this :).

So, I just turned level 15 ans now have a net of 55 pounds that i brought. Looking to make trips and level up, but i dont really know where can it be profitable and nice to get exp?

Any advice would be appreciated, and i was lucky enough to finish  3rd in a tourney!! Got a great casting spoon for big fish (i pretty sure its a 1/2 oz !) I catch bass in the first pound around 1.5 to 2 lbs at all time with this new lure.

 

Have fun fishin!!

Walleye can be tricky, they'll go in spurts where I'll catch a bunch in a short time, then go for a long time without one.  I've had the best luck at the spot that's not the dock, just behind the lilly pads to the left, towards the weeds.  When not getting walleye I tend to catch a good amount of trophy chain pickerel there as well and even got a unique as well once, so I really like that spot.

Once you can fish in Florida/California/Michigan, here are the things you should focus on there:

1) Florida: Largemouth & Peacock Bass. Topwater lures work really well for them, and they are very active at night too. Cast around or near lillies. Takes longer to fill your net as the fish are smaller, but they give decent payout and the catch rate is very high.

2) California: Fish for Striped Bass and Steelhead Trout. Both can be fished from multiple locations, but I usually go to the docks (top peg) - specifically the middle dock, and cast roughly towards the green building. But fan-casting works too, they're not limited to a small area or anything. I use walkers and poppers with great results - in daytime and nighttime. You fill a net very quickly here, and a full 200kg net can yield you about 20k (non-premium).

3) Michigan: The real money-maker. Float-fish for Northern Pike (I use shiners on a #6/0 hook at 30cm leader length) around the lillies on the south of the lake. High bite, rate, and VERY good value for money on the pikes. They will also bite cranks and medium spoons.

On ps4 we don't have night fishing or top water fishing yet. But when that is available I'll definitely take your advice!

Ahh right. Okay, on Florida the bass will bite on medium spoons with a speed 3 stop&go. Cranks will work too. In fact, this combination will work in California and Michigan as well :)

I've been using cranks on bass since level 16 I think. It's been working pretty well. I can't speak to Michigan or California though. I haven't been there. Bass are pretty decent $, but I feel like the experience is pretty low.

I honestly don't really pay much attention to the experience.  I'm in no rush to get to max level.  The money is all  really pay attention to, the XP will come is how I look at it.

Very true. I guess I've just cared about leveling so I could get better gear, then in turn catch bigger fish. Reduced experience probably isn't that big of a deal anyway. I might as well just keep using my stronger setup that I think could pull in a unique and live with lower experience. I don't need to lose a 3rd bait coin crank lol.

Quick question about travel and multiple day stay :

Ok, so if it cost me 2500 to travel to north carolina, and 500 per day. If on the first day, i fill my 55 pounds keepnet to max, then i forward time to end of day, will it sell my fish and start day 2 with empty fishnet? Or do i need to go back to home to sell the fish (thats what ive been doing since the biginning, and im level18 now...)

By doing so, i mike abput 700 profit on a trip to north carolina... not tha great... 

 

Thanks for helping me...

Once you reach 5am (either by the time passing naturally or by fast-forwarding time) it will sell everything in your keepnet. You don't have to leave the waterway.
