  1. What you have circled in red is perfectly normal. It's actually how people fish in real life. You pack the groundbait into the method feeder, then stuff the hook into the ball of gb on your method feeder.

    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.

     

    I get your point, but there is equipment in the game meant for bigger fish. And I assume you're talking about carp when you're talking about reeling in taking forever.

     

    When there is a very big carp on the end of your line, you have to take advantage of the physics. The reel alone usually won't be able to crank it in, you will see it slowly clicking even though the fish is dead weight. You have to pull the fish with your rod and reel in the slack. Repeatedly pull the rod back then reel in the slack and it will come in eventually. 

     

    If you only rely on the reel to bring in the fish, then it will take 2-3x longer to bring the fish in. Once you can upgrade to a more powerful, lower gear ratio reel, you will notice the difference.

    Hello everyone,

     

    Does anyone have a good groundbait recipe to lure big Bream?

    Thnx

     

    Peter

     

    Definitely check out the staff guides, very helpful & has important concepts.

     

    For regular bream, it depends on what your making groundbait level is. High quality GB will always work better.

     

    Try something simple like this: Pearl Barley - maggots - chopped worm - millet porridge - Anise Oil

     

    You could even use Oat Flakes instead of Pearl Barley.

    I see, so material takes precedence over diameter in the same kg range. In my example, fluoro would be preferred when fishing for cautious fish, even though it's much thicker.

     

    Going back to my other question, which I think I may not have been clear enough:

    In the shop there are some lines in their own category called "Leader materials" and come in rolls of lengths of 15-20m. Do these lines have any specific characteristics that make them more suitable for making into leaders than lines from the "Lines" category (the usual ones of 100m, 150m, 350m etc).

     

    Yeah,  braid leaders that I make for carp fishing are usually 40-60cm. I'm still able to make multiple leaders with the small spool. With that said, if i need fluorocarbon leaders, i'll buy the smallest spool (which is still expensive) and then you have TONS of leaders, hours and hours and hours of fishing worth.

    Why is it that after every server re-start/update the devs insist on killing the fishing. This is FISHING game in order to have fun one must be able to catch fish and big ones at that. Have devs not considered that they could keep good bite rate but reduce silver? everyone knows tuba pond/tuba carp fishing was the way to make silver. now that is no longer an option. Tung was the other way of making silver. however now it seems that too is  no longer a viable method.  

     

    It is frustrating initially, but in general the fish move from 1 spot to another. It's pretty easy to track them down. You already know what baits/colors work for the map you're fishing, just use what works in a different spot and you'll eventually start catching them again 🙂

    And then there are the ghost nibbles...
    Could you please make it so that you only the bite/running off with the bait and not get the endless nibbling?

     

    I found that maximizing your auto-hooking will prevent the endless nibbles. This means using the appropriate hooks and shortening your leader will help the fish hook themselves. Also, especially when carp fishing, the use of certain sinkers can help with your auto hooking.

    There is a extremely good chance that im going at it wrong i have 1 rod thats set up for there I been watching videos and such trying to get good idea but idk This post was more or less asking what others might been doing to give me a different perspective as im certain im doing something wrong. 

     

    If your gear is not that strong, I recommend bottom fishing for char, bream, and burbot.

     

    You can get really good EXP and money from bottom fishing for char. Use a fluorocarbon leader; no bigger than 7 or 8 kgs, a small hook; maybe a size #12, and mayfly larva as the bait.

     

    At night is when you should fish for burbot. They live in deeper parts of the lake. Burbot like live bait, worms, and fishy things. So pieces of fish, nightcrawlers, frogs, and live bait are all good. I would recommend a fluorocarbon leader between 10-15 kgs, and a large hook #4 - #1.

     

    A basic GB that might help with Burbot fishing is something like this: feed - bloodworms - chopped worm - biscuit - fish oil

     

    I also think you should check out rf4spots.com it is a great resource for finding spots to fish as well as what people are using to catch them.

    Have a question about about Stringer use. What is the max amount of Stringer pva you can use before you over feed the area? 

     

    In my experience with using spod for GB (which deploys 10 portions), about 20-30 portions is too much GB in less than 24 HRs. You see a dramatically low bite rate (almost as if it is been overfished) if you feed too much GB.

     

    Hope this helps.

  9. Multiple factors here:

     

    1.) Line Tension - if you have a slack line (no tension) this can cause the fish to come loose.

    2.) Quality of Hooks - The higher quality hooks you have (the # of stars seen in the store) the less chance of a fish getting away during a long fight.

    3.) Bad Luck - in some cases, the fish just comes loose. With that said, I have caught thousands of fish and less than 1% of them have gotten away.

    Again looking at the maps, topics on forum it seems that I should focus on improving my gear in float and spin fishing. As they are more common in Belaya, Kuori and the following maps opposed to bottom feeding setup (confirmation needed by higher lvl players).

     

    IF you're only focused on efficient progression, then it's a good idea to have some spinning gear & bottom fishing gear. Float is less efficient. 

     

    In the end, you have the ability to use whatever method you find the most fun! Just keep in mind that certain water bodies are better for certain fishing methods.

     

    Example: Kuori is a fantastic spin fishing lake! You can find mild success bottom fishing, but primarily it is for spin fishing. (A good angler will use multiple fishing methods in a day to keep the silver flowing). Spin fishing during the day, and bottom fishing at night will make sure you are always catching fish.

     

    However, places like Bear Lake are different, but the same concept applies. You can fish with a match rod (heavy float rod) during the day for carp, but then you might have more success at the bottom at night. Or you could just bottom fish for carp day AND night.

     

    Make sure you are aware of what species are active ONLY during the day and ONLY during the night. Take advantage of your time and target whatever species are most active.

    Why I managed to get a bigger fish on feeder rod than the spinning rod (comparing the rods max weight and the reels max drag)?

     

    Spinning fish (setup attached, max 12kg) I landed a ~5kg pike.

    Bottom feeding (setup attached, max 14kg) I landed a ~10kg common carp.

     

    Just like in real life, fish have physical differences. Pike are very strong compared to their actual weight, they fight very hard. Carp however, do not fight hard (with the exception of grass carp xD) and they are mostly dead weight you have to pull in.

     

    A 10KG pike will fight significantly harder than a 10kg Carp. 

     

    I hope this information helped!

  11. Hi,

     

    I think lures under the "huge" category should be more effective in attracting big fish, ESPECIALLY while trolling. I would be happy using "huge" lures knowing I am able to catch something, even if it is at a lower bite rate. As of right now "huge" lures are useless, the bite rate is way too low to consider using for trophy hunting.

     

    "Medium" sized lures attract a large quantity of fish as well as trophy fish. This makes them better for trophy hunting AND farming large quantities of fish.

  12. I'm looking for someone who can craft high quality wobblers. I will buy mats.

     

    IGN Nawrly17

     

    Shoot me a message if you're able to craft high quality wobblers, I'd really like to try some out!

  13. I have a question that I think would help lots of players. Is there a way to tell what foods/flavors fish are attracted to? And would the game benefit from an in-game glossary of known attractants/baits that fish bite on? For example:

     

    Tench:

    Likes - Cheese, corn flour, Worms, Algae etc.

    Dislikes - (whatever might repel the fish or show no attraction whatsoever)

     

    This gives room for the players to create their own groundbait / bait recipes while giving them direction to target certain species.

    Im struggling to force myself to play rf4 anymore. its gotten soo ridiculously boring. I log in, sit & stare of the opening screen and all i can think of is WHY bother? Which sux cuz this used to be a personal fav.

     

    Yeah :( I just can't justify wasting my time not catching any fish. I still think this is the best fishing game out there, but there just arent enough hints as to what I need to do to catch fish.

     

    GREAT IDEA, just thought of it.

     

    What if there was a 'fishing report' generated by the game based on your unique profile! It would say what fish might be willing to bite on, what flavorings for GB/bait would best work in current conditions, what colors of lures fish show interest in. I think that would be a welcome addition, so that each player can have their own unique fishing experience without wasting their time or trying to copy other players!!

    This, even on a normal jigging rig I have a lot of success catching good sized Zander with the occasional burbot and char. I make sure to use a 9.7kg fluoro leader to have a better shot at hooking char, very slow retrieve on the bottom, 22 speed on a gold 80s.

     

    Just an update to this, I posted to discord a trophy Zander i caught with more details on the setup!

  16. Leveling from 80 - 100%

    • I always used the cheapest base mixture available (and only the base mixture)
    • Always discard (backspace)
    • Drink 2/2 portions of general's brandy every 15 minutes
    • All done within one happy hour; barely got done within an hour while working fast.
    • Cost me ~1300 silver

    Drinking alcohol helps level your skills up faster. There is a significant difference seen in skill gains when drinking alcohol vs. not having the effect of it. It matters a LOT! Drink some alcohol if you find yourself crafting but not receiving any % a few times in a row.

    Hi there!

     

    A little update about 63.133 as there's some sturgeon biting now.

    I caught myself some russians, and I've seen a 10kg stellate being caught. Maybe there's some perspective about sturgeon fishing here, who knows?

    Bigheads are still biting at night, still some burbots and zanders, and the small species are still very good (see previous posts).

     

    About sturgeons:

    Spot: 63.133

    Clip: 20m

    Baits: halibut 14 (I caught the two biggest sturgeons, 17.2kg and 14.1kg, with this boilie), cockchafer larva

    Groundbaits/PVA: take a look at screenshots

    Session duration: around 3h30

    That sounds right, I used Halibut 20 boilies trying for wild carp and ended up catching a 15kg russian sturgeon.

    From my experience, I'am trying to mix things up at ladoga width honest results.

    My journey is usually as below:

    I buy a three days boat ticket

    1st 24 hours I start at 50:46 where I'm doing texas rig fishing with lyns minnow lure. I'am aiming EAST in the 11m hole and i usually get Zanders, Chars and in a lesser quantity burbot, lake trout, red char, gray char.

    2nd 24 hours I go to 90:21 where I texas rig again for a good quantity of char aiming outside of the map North East (you aim for the first island outside of the map). I can get 10-15 chars usually like this + some zanders/burbots as usual

    3rd 24 hours: I go to the island in 61:33 and I swith to feeders. At night , I aim for 60:40 with nightcrawlers/pieces of fish for burbots. Then in the morning I thow my two biggest lines in the 18meters hole. You have to have good setups to make a quite long cast to reach the 18meters spot. With those two rods, I try to use rhino/nightcrawlers to get baltic sturgeon (but you can get many other fished like whitefishes like this). With the last rod I put mayfly larvae and cast to the 11meters hole.

     

    Usually it makes for a honest amount of money and it's quite enjoyable.


    If you just go for trolling, I suggest using a 3rd rod in hand (preferably a light spinning setup) with wacky to get a lot of smaller fishes.

     

    Regards

     

    This, even on a normal jigging rig I have a lot of success catching good sized Zander with the occasional burbot and char. I make sure to use a 9.7kg fluoro leader to have a better shot at hooking char, very slow retrieve on the bottom, 22 speed on a gold 80s.

    The big asp like to bite in the morning. Since the restart, the 6.5m hole seems to be really good for asp, i caught a 5kg, and a 4.4kg on a sunny day with s11 wobblers. Catching those 2 asp saved my day, putting me at 110s for the day (i was trying another spot from before the restart and i was getting small asp). I also want to mention that I stopped playing @ mid-day, to go to bed, so I very well would've been over 110s on the day if i played the whole hour. I am at work right now, so I had to snag someone else's picture of the map, but I highlighted the area in pink.

     

    I was using a 13.8kg fluoro leader, and I did not catch any pike but that's definitely a reason to try a thinner mono if you dont want to risk losing lures (11.5kg mono).

     

    I know topwater is the best method to catch asp, so I plan on trying that for a day or two and I will post the results later. (Orig Walker 002 --> walk the dog)

    I did not forget about this, only had 1 hour to play last night, weather was 17* at volkhov (which is extremely hot) so I didn't even bother fishing, let alone on topwater.

     

    It was abysmal, only caught 2 1kg asp and 2 beefy Chub, 1 small pike. ( from 2:00am - 10:00am). Topwater skill was also at 1/3, but i will try again with better weather.

  21. I honestly tried ladoga for 3 hours yesterday. The most I got out of it was 2 trophy roach, a 3kg lake trout. I did get a big fish on my UL setup, but for some reason all the fish are getting away lately. The burbot were O.K.

     

    #6 jig, Lynn's twister, the purple one @ finger stones. 

     

    I moved all around, I tried going for pike at the 6m pond area. I tried all along the cliffside, by the lighthouse/bridge. Fingerstones. No luck :/

     

    I used mayfly larva with loop rig the whole time for my bait rods. I tried different sized hooks, size 12 got me some ladoga whitefish & trophy roach. 

     

    I did not try trolling, and I did not go out on the boat to jig the 14m hole. Idk, I feel like ladoga needs a little buff, or some way to better tell where the fish are.
