Welcome, and long time no see!
I've had a couple of questions lately regarding what type of talent's and why i use them.
So here comes a guide that explains why I use the talent tree that I do.
As you can see on the picture above. This is my talent tree at this very moment. Remember that it shares some points into Bottom Fishing aswell, which brings me to the next picture that will be displayed below here.
Some of you might wonder why do you have points into Carp Rods?
We'll when you put points into Spod Rods/Marker Rods, they share which I guess most of you people have noticed, but the main reason for this for spoding and feeding up the area im fishing at.
Since we lack the ability to use the PVA bag, we have to rely on the SPOD/SPOMB Method, combined with Cobras/Slingshots. Which is to me a fun way of doing it, since it allows you to use both Balls/Boilies/Dry Mix into consideration when fishing a certain fish.
Using the Cobra with Boilies can have a deadly effect on the area, but also be warned. You can easily overfeed an area if you use to much. I normally only use this once during a 24 hour ingame period, combined with 10 Portion of SPOD/SPOMB. Make sure you are casting the specific boilie you are using at the moment aswell to increase the chances of getting a bite.
Use your imagination and always plan ahead. Mark the time you throw them out, and count 24 hours of ingame time and then you can recast it, alongside with a SPOD/SPOMB or 10 groundbait Balls.
Slingshots, are my way to go with when targeting Breams/Tench and some other specific species. Using the Groundbait Balls CAN increase the area of which you are feeding, depends how you spread them out when throwing them. But you also have to pay attention to the wind speed, if the wind is high they will fly off from the area you are fishing in by far. If the wind is calm, this is a great way to feed up an area.
As you can see i've left out the Tele rods, and Bolo rods. I only fish with Match Rods, on every lake/river in this game. The talent tree is desgined specificly for Carps and General Match Rod fishing overall.
I hope this sheeds some light into the Match Section of the game. It's a fantastic fun way to fish, and trust me. Once you catch that trophy Carp on a Match rod, the feeling is just GREAT!
And as always, if you have any questions or want some help or encountering issues. Feel free to contact me ingame.
And remember, pay attention to the float!
I'll post some of my precious Carp catches on float for you down below.
