  1. Hi all! My first brown trout trophy . Specie: Brown trout Map: Lower Tunguska River Spot: 113:111 Direction: aim the rocks at the left, close to the other ridge (see screenshot) Setup Method: walk-the-dog Weather: sunny Moment: early morning
  2. Oh no problem buddy ^^, we can say this is quite surprising and weird, but it exists ^^. I was the first shocked when it happened . But maybe it depends of the clams themselves. They are quite primitive creatures, so who knows what they really think .
  3. Hi! I know, by my own experience, that mussels are good fighters . I caught 2 of them while fishing with small spinners few years ago, and I thought each time that it was a 100g perch fighting. Those mussels were approx. big as a credit card, even smaller. They move by swallowing and expulsing water. So there's nothing weird about their behaviour in RF4, it's just surprising that they can do that . I hope it brings an answer to your suggestion .
  4. Hey all ! Another hot spot . Specie: Frame-sided carp Map: Amber Lake Spot: 124:66 G8 Clip: 35m Setup Weather: sunny Period of the bite: night Feeding: one PVA bag on rods 1 and 3 the first 24h, then a cast of redkrill pellets 18 at 8pm every 24h.
  5. Hey all ! Amber being hot . Some big ladies there. Specie: Common carp Map: Amber Lake Spot: 83.144 E4 Clip: 35m Setup Weather: sunny Period of the bite: night Feeding: one PVA bag on rods 1 and 3 the first 24h, then a cast of redkrill pellets 18 at 8pm every 24h.
  6. Hi all! Another nice spot for baitfish rig I've found. You'll find there nice chars, nice lake trouts, nice arctic chars, some good sevan trouts and some decent rainbow trouts (not on the next screenshot). I got a trophy char at this place. I used mainly roaches (the trophy char took it), the best for me. White breams give some nice lake trouts and some good chars, ruffes give a bigger proportion of chars. The final net was pretty nice, and still would have been without the trophy . Results for 1h30of fishing: Coords: 112.94 G6 (aim the green circle on the screenshot) Clip: 30m Setup (baitfish rig) Best weather: sunny
  7. Hi everyone! Specie: Char Map: Kuori Lake Coords: 112.94 G6, (aim at the green circle on the next screenshot) Clip: 30m Setup (baitfish rig - roach) Weather: sunny
  8. Hi all! I'm testing different spots with some baitfishes, and I've found an interesting one for the rainbow trout. I think there's potentially a nice trophy ont the area. There are some nice chars too. The final result is pretty nice , for only 1h of fishing with baitfishes. The baitfish working the best for me was the roach. Results: Coords: 92.100 E6, cast to the smallest deep hole Clip: 32m Setup
  9. Hey everyone! An actual good place for white bream and crucian carp at Bear Lake. Species: White Bream and Crucian Carp Map: Bear Lake Coords: 55.33 F7 Clip: 15m Setup (classic hair rig)
  10. Hi all! Finally closed the book at Mosquito !!! Specie: Perch Map: Mosquito Lake Coords: 96.77 I5 Casting distance: max 20m, they bite mostly within this distance, and with shorter casts, you will optimize the number of your tries during the "hot" hours . Setup (jigging rig) When/Weather: caught during the evening, under the rain. The morning and the evening are the best moments (biterate and size) Other: you can try other luras as the classic shads for example. I tried the fluo yellow, it gave interesting results. You can also try with nightcrawlers on the bottom while you cast your lure. It's effective too.
  11. Hello all . A short post for beginners who desire to farm some breams at night. Here is a spot I've tried during the night. The camp looked so comfortable, I decided to stay there. Coords: 54.75 C5 Clip: 12-15m, cast towards the 2m area Setup (loop rig) / Groundbait : classic bream mix Results:
  12. Hi all! A little update about spots and baits. 98.157 seems to be not active anymore. 108.129 still active. Baits: the mayfly works quite nice too now. So you can try those sandwich baits: mayfly + nighcrawler mayfly + gammarus mayfly + caddisfly gammarus + nightcrawler gammarus + caddisfly nightcrawler + caddisfly New active spot: 138.196 E4 Clip: 25m, casting upstream Depth for float: 2m-2,25m Fishes and nets (sessions of about 45min-1h15)
  13. Hi all! Here is a small update about my experiments. The weather: It seems that the longnose sucker is much more active in cloudy/rainy weather. The bite rate during sunny/hot weather decreases clearly. The period of the day: the activity is more important during the morning and evening. The average size of the fishes seems to be higher aswell during those periods. There are regular bites during daytime too, but from smaller fishes. By night, bites of the longnose sucker become less numerous. I've found an other active spot that is quite promising. There are some other fishes like the dolly varden, the whitespotted char (and some small sized coho salmon), even some rare levanidov chars. Coords: 108.129 D6 Clip and direction: 20m, casting upstream to south, then letting the float drift with the current. Depth for the float: 1,50-1,60m Results:
  14. Hi all! Here is my first approach of the fishing of this specie. I will develop only float fishing, and especially with the bolognese rig. This is not really a guide, it's more an experimentation report to give you, players, an idea of what to do. In addition, the used setups were based on my tests, so don't hesitate to propose better setups more adapted to this specie! As it's mentioned in the fish's description, this specie is mainly targeted with float and spinning rigs. The only exemplars that I caught on bottom rigs have bitten on lamprey baitfish. Not even on feeder rig (maybe one exemplar on hours of fishing with nightcrawlers). They seem to like lampreys, but the bite rate is very low (like maximum 2 or 3 fishes per day). And it would be a pity to target such a small fish with this bait (you'll get probably many unintented catches from salmonidaes ). I began with the match rig, but it's clearly not adapted for this kind of river with strong current. I experienced a lot of missed bites, it wasn't easy to perform good strikes with match rods. Bolognese rods seemed better to me, as they are longer and can offer a better lever arm for strikes in strong current and at quite high distance. I won't talk about telesticks, too stressing and too much work on this waterbody . Here is an example of setup : As you can see, I'm using quite strong leaders for a 1-2kg fish. It depends of the spot. For example, the spot I will present has a good population of coho salmons, and amazingly they bite not so bad on the baits intended for the longnose suckers. Some of them are very nice, over 4kg+, and fight very well. There are also some chum salmons. At a "less problematic" spot, populated with smaller fishes (I will present the spot aswell, but it seems to be inactive for the moment), you could use a lighter setup of course (maybe a little better bite rate). A leader of 3.6kg or 4.4kg is enough for a good specimen of longnose sucker. Consider it as a strong roach . The baits: I tried a bit of everything, and for the moment the nightcrawler and the gammarus (gammarus gives the best bite rate) are working the best. You can use them separately or in a sandwich. Nightcrawlers seem also to interest nice coho salmons. Caddisfly gives results too, but the average weight of the fishes seems to be inferior with it and smelts love them very much. The spot: Coords: 98.157 D5 Clip and direction: 25/30m and cast upstream, the float must land like 15m from the ridge, and you let it drift downstream. Fishing at a longer distance from the ridge works too; I've tried to fish at 30/35m from the ridge (with a bigger clip of 45/50m), but reeling in so much line each time you need to recast is a loss of time. Depth for the float: 1m70-1m80 Float fishing in a strong current like this requires much attention, to not lose the sight of your floats that can be quite far from each other. You'll have also to zoom in with the binoculars to see better the bites (at least longnose sucker's bite isn't subtle, you'll see your float sink quite quickly). You can also use the little zooming window to follow easily one of the floats. It's a quite funny method for those who like active float fishing . Results: The other spot seems to be inactive now, but has to be remembered for next migrations, you could give a try later: Coords: 271.157 J5 Clip: 30-35m, you perform a cast in the same direction as the stream, cast really near the ridge (around 2m from it) and you let the float drift with the bail opened till the clip is hit. You can get longnose sucker's bites all along the trajectory of the bait (at 30-35m too). Depth for the float: 3m-3m50 Setup used when it was active (I advise you to use bigger hooks, because the place is overcrowded with asian smelts that bite continuously on gammarus and caddisfly. It will help to filter fishes a bit. Here, use preferably nightcrawlers.): Results at this period:
  15. We let players figure out what works the best . But theoretically yes, perches must work, but how good they work you have to discover by yourself ^^.
