Different clothes really come in handy in this game for realism. At a minimum, you need a different color shirt, and camouflage. But to be honest, I would personally work on the overall look of the anglers more.
- Sorry but it should have been obvious that a fish can not bite through the steel leader, even if you have not read the manual yet. Steel leader is in the game against pike, just like in real life. There are predators with weak eyes and bad temper: perch, pike,... they will do not care and take your lure, but predators with good eyesight and with more cautiousness (e.g: trout) will not take your lure with steal leader.
- And GB will not help you to deter catfish since catfish is a predator. (Small ones eat worms too, but they are predators).
- There is no common area of burbot and pike... it is almost impossible to catch one of them if you target the other one... Burbot live on the bottom while pike midwater and could attack to the surface.
- There is no snag at Bear if your equipment adequate for Bear since appropriate reel can easily pull the tackle among the lilies, without snag. However with weak setup there could be a problem there with snag, but not often. (Old burg's ghost snags are much more annoying)
