  1. Hi everyone. Can I please get some advice on how to effectively farm live bait size perch? Where, how and with what. I know UL works but I don't have a setup for that. Thanks in advance
  2. Morning. Can any one give me a review of the Natora 8000? I'm looking to purchase one to replace a alpha. I already have a old Mayor which I'm not happy with, due to its line capacity and quick wear from braid. Is the 'new' Mayor any different to the old as the specifications are identical? Or would it be best to save more and get an Everest?
  3. Nope they want you to spend gold on them as live bait
  4. Stay away from the Mayor. For a bit more go with the 18.5kg Natora 8000. Reason why is because the Mayor holds so little mono so you have to use braid... Which eats the reel up
  5. Thanks mqg for the info. I'm never throwing perch again off the islands on Ladoga. I hooked something stupid (must of been a baltic) which completely stripped my mayor during a 10 minute fight, never hit alt f4 so fast before
  6. Haha just as scared... Want to buy a new reel but worried they will make one stronger and one weaker... And I will buy the too be nerfed one knowing my luck
  7. I unlocked live bait three days ago. I was a bit disappointed to start off with, a small pike or two at Ladoga and odd burbot at Kuori. I basically blanked at Volkhov and Bear. However last night I went to Sura and fished the 7.5m hole. I constantly swapped between live bait species until I got a bite. My first throw with bleak I caught a 10kg catfish... From there all 9 of my bleak were taken in as many casts in almost the same amount of time. Zander and Volga Zander couldn't leave them alone. I even caught my first trophy Zander of 8.8kg. Caught some more fish on white bream and gudgeon. Smaller live baits and lighter tackle gives a decent bite rate, Where's perch, crucial and gibel are very slow (only caught pike on them so far). I also noticed lately in the game no matter the method, if a rod is sitting still for a long time, recast it... It almost always triggers a rapid bite.
  8. The only fish species that require gold baits are sturgeons. Just gain levels, most gold baits you can buy for silver at higher level lakes or you can craft. The silver farm is hard now that bream populations have taken a dip. I'm still making good money at bear lake. My first hour there I normally make around 200 silver, then tapers off to around 100 after that
  9. Would be pretty rad for Taiman, Lenok and Amur Pike. Would be cool is this map introduces proper flowing water like rapids
  10. Hi everyone. Currently I'm sitting the mid 50s for feeder fishing skill. I have premium but I'm hardly getting experience points. I know I should target different species etc but I have and nothing seems to give me points. If I use later equipment and skills like my upcoming loop rig skill or picker rods (which I have used before) will they give me more experience because it's new/unused techniques? I really want to get to live bait as I have already unlocked frog harvest skill but can't use them
  11. Thanks Elwoodiath2. I have purchased premium and unlocked mayflies as well. Still receive basically no increase in skill. Anyways. A question about frogs as bait. Im almost able to harvest frogs. But do I need to unlock a skill in the feeder tree to actually use them? And do you need to purchase a live bait bucket etc for frogs?
  12. Hi, I just unlocked the scoop and harvest blood worm and aquatic plants skill. Firstly all I can collect is blood worm and secondly I have not received a single 0.1 increase in harvest baits. Is this correct?
  13. Is honey dough still the only bait providing a good rate of bite from common, mirror and leather carp? I enjoyed bear the yesterday but couldn't stay long because I haven't unlocked honey doug, got a few from other players but they ran out. Beside grass carp on potatoes no other baits worked for me. BTW... Amazing grass carp
  14. I have tried a whole bunch of spots looking for bream, vimba etc. Old well known spots and new... And results have been very disappointing. After around 5 rl hours I maybe caught 7 bream. Tried spinning and trolling. Better but the majority of fish don't even have market value
  15. Yip big grass carp at the burg always find a way to mess you up. Once was fishing of the fort island and had a 12kg run straight into the little back bay (sleepy hollow?). Luckily it couldn't strip me but my 7.5kg gear could not bring him over land once he went belly up. I just put the rod down and went to land a 22kg on my other rod, after that tug of war I went back and to my fortune the previous one I had on somehow lined itself up so I could pull it through the little bridge/walk way
