  1. But is the 16 hour a total for all 60 pieces or 10 pieces or 1 piece = 16 hours? So a 5 piece spod will last 5-6 in game hours roughly?
  2. Actually it is a good question . Back in the day ground-bait could last as long as 34 hours duration not sure but I think it used to make 10 balls? Easy to work out how long each ball would last. Now if it still works the same the 16 hour duration for example is for a batch of 60 . Am I right in assuming to get 16 hours game time duration from my GB I need to put the whole batch of 60 in the water? As of now I have been spoding and catapulting between 8-10 balls which I thought gave me 16 hours but if GB works as a batch duration of 60 5 in a spod or catty will last only 160 mins or 2.5 hours game time . Can you clarify if this is correct. Many thanks :)
  3. I don't know if anyone else has this issue but when I cast the line and retrieve the line shows on screen still like floating in the air on its own. SS attatched. Any fix for this would be most appreciated . cheers
  4. So I can use my bottom rods to spod but cant use it at the same time as a spod rod because it doesn't say spod rod. Well par for the course I guess. How sad. I'll just make do in that case . Cheers bud
  5. Hi Cod can you tell me if your spod rod is specifically a spod rod only or are you using an old bottom rod for spodding? because I am using an old astra bottom rod with the spod setting. I don't see why the game is counting it as a 4th rod as it has not tackle set up on it? . I have premium so its not that. I hope its not a case of having to buy a spod rod specific to be able to use it as you use yours. I mean I am essentially doing the exact same thing?
  6. As it stands we can use 3 rods to fish with which is fine. I can also use a marker rod along with my 3 selected fishing rods. I can also feed with the catapult. Why can I not use my spod rod to feed the other 3 lines without having to put 1 of the 3 designated rods away first?. Could you please make the spod rod the same as the marker rod and allow its use whilst fishing with 3 rods. Thanks
  7. Could there possibly a way to change how the strike on the float after a bite .? at the moment if I am fishing 9m depth when I strike there is a 4-5 second delay from the strike to it actually connecting with the fish and is causing the fish to bounce off more times than i actually hook up. Is there a reason for this delay as it is for all intent of purpose a sliding rig and the hook is connected to the main line which should give automatic response from the rod on the strike. I hope this can be changed cheers
  8. Float fishing and feeder fishing is part and parcel of my everyday set ups on the match circuit in the UK and the game puts bottom fishing on a much higher bite rate than you would get IRL. Remember we usually target larger species with bottom rods so in itself unless the places you fish are just crammed with big fish the bite rates are way way slower than float fishing. I have never in almost 50 years of fishing ever come close to a catch rate on bottom rods as I do with float. It is much faster and more direct and believe it or not you miss less bites. You also get more bites as you are fishing with lighter tackle. I would love to use my float rods but it just doesn't pay when most of the time you strike at air or you prick the fish on the strike. Also trying to hook up with the rod on the ground is pretty near impossible. The float might be gone but so is the fish. There is no comparison between bottom fishing and float fishing . Float fishing has no balance compared to other methods. The poles which are actually known as speed sticks are hardly speedy. It needs to be overhauled and the line from the float back to the rod is more like tugboat rope than line and should never be that tight . Bring some love to the float fishing please. I had to reskill because it's so bad
  9. Thanks for swift reply . I'll give it a few hours
  10. Hi Is server maintenance still in progress as It has been 7 hours current time UK is 15.15pm My screen is stuck on the loading profile page . Can you let me know why my game is still not working Kind regards sirfishalot
  11. Makes no difference at the point the fish is a dead weight which should never be the case because a fish is weightless in water. so it should just come back pretty easy not take hours to reel in. Sadly since my last post. I realise this game will never change and the Devs are pretty much hard coded in the way the game portrays itself. I had to make a decision do I just ignore every fish that is going to take more time than is cost effective and just fish for tiddlers or do I uninstall the game and hope to god someone actually makes one correctly. I choose the later. It is supposed to be a fun sport . You should try this IRL yourselves you might see how wrong this game is.
  12. Float fishing is far more time wasted from fish playing with the bait to the point it is not cost effective to fish with floats. I mean sure I fish IRL where on the odd occasion and do mean odd occasion a fish will be pecking at the bait or the shots on the line but i normally reel in a few turns or recast. But the game i have regularly had 3 rods 2 feeders 1 float where the bite on the float is still bobbing up and down whilst I have had 3 fish 3 bites on the other 2 rods and this can go on for hour at a time. And I don't know who feeds you the stories that carp nibble bait because I am a carp match angler. when a carp bites you know about it esp on the float you dont see it coming and the rod will almost jerk from your hand that is how fast they are .
  13. Thanks I was trying everything to find a way to clip it now i'll go try it
  14. You cannot clip the distance and it doesn't reach 17m lucky if it goes 7 or 8 @ 100% . As it stands it is useless for me to use. If fish on aktubah Putting dry mix down in the river is pointless it just washes away on impact. So now I have no means of getting groundbait out to my feeders other than what is in them. Just seen under my picture how to clip it so ignore the clip comment lols If you never hear from me well tou know it worked
