Hi there!


Suggestion n°10:

Sandwich bait skill should be available for bottom fishing too. I see absolutely no reason to make it so specific to float fishing. When I'm feeder fishing in real life, I love to make sandwich baits like sweet corn + maggots, or bread + corn. Also having two boilies on the same hair rig :) .


Thanks for attention.

Hi there!


Suggestion n°11:

It would be cool to see an air pump to buy for the baitfish bucket, in order to keep them fresh and alive for a longer time. The "bug" making dead baitfishes alive if you had one fresh has been "fixed", so it would be nice to give us the possibility to keep fishes in good conditions for longer :D .


Thanks for attention.

I've been looking into possible locations for a level 22 map. I came across the Amur River and after doing a little research I believe it may be the best location. The Amur is one of the more prominent fishing spots in Russia and is home to a wide variety of spices including Sturgeon (the Kaluga sturgeon would be really cool), large Taimen, Amur Pike, White Fish, and many more spices.

Ruffe from 30 to 90 g,  white bream from 30 to 90 g, perch from 80 to 150 g, roach from 50 to 130 g crucian and gibel from 80 to 150 g in my opinion is hard now to get a lot of baitfish and i like fishing with baitfish a lot but i prefer to fish with other rigs because i need 2-3 h to get like 60 baitfish and that in 1 h of fishing is gone and 70% for small fish.
