So in my opinion the damage system is one of the absolutely worst features of the game. In real life you can use tackle for years without any problems and here you get damage on reel, line etc, after one fish. soo...yeaaa thanks, but no thanks
I had two of those ( 6kg and 4kg ) from the very smal island in H8 square casting towards deeper area. Also had there 1 russian sturgeon and 1 stellate sturgeon + 2 big perches. All in about 1hr 30min so kinda slow but worth taking a closer look
107:92 is currently coming back to life. Here's my net after 90 real life minutes.
Pea porridge is working nicely with caster and pearl barely also giving decent numbers.
Bites seem slower while raining.
Additional about 20 "underage" breams were cut into fish pieces
Enjoy while it's quite active.
