could someone with experience give me advice on the definitive method for striking (and connecting!) when waggler fishing? I don't have a problem with large fish such as carp, rod is in the rod rest and you just wait til the rod bends, but out in a boat at Ladoga for whitefish for example, it's a different matter.
Just seems a total lottery to me when you strike as to whether you connect with the fish. IRL it's just a powerful sideways or upwards movement of the rod when the float goes under, in game it's 50/50 if this works, although using a pole it seems to be a reliable method.
Someone mentioned using ctrl and rmb together, which seems a perverse added complication vs IRL. I tried the latter, again it rarely seems to work, in fact the rod often doesn't move.
What am i doing wrong? Clearly you can't expect to connect with every bite but at the moment it's ridiculous...and frustrating.
