After a long time on Winding Rivulet and specifically targeting the Spinning based skill, Kouri Lake became a reality. The first few hours there, nothing of major interest happened. Being a new and unexplored experience, fishing locations and retrieval techniques were limited at best and since I didn't want to walk down the trodden path of spoilers, things were difficult. It was only when a quick drive by of the cursed island that things took a notable turn for the better. Seeing the chat box fill with Burbot mass murderers, things became clear that this was the spot that required attention. A small island, with a dead tree and a very ominous axe embedded in its trunk, the time had come to invest a fair amount of time spinning around the dark and foreboding waters to see what monsters could be tamed. Using an oversized Heavens Creek 20 - 007 spoon, a few slow retrievals in the deepest of spots produced a few perch and a 1kg Grayling. Success, first ever Grayling and it was a substantial size. Day began its slow transition to night and suddenly the rod bent over double, reel screaming like the lost souls trapped on the island and an epic battle began. The whale of a fish took off purposely across the lake, taking many meters of line and ignored any and all friction brake settings, perhaps this was a mistake I thought. 

As night time moved aside for early morning day break, the fish tired. Eleven and a half hours in-game later, Moby Dick had finally tired and was slowly, extremely slowly, succumb to the pressures of 7.5kg tackle and allowed itself to be hauled from the opposite side of the map, back to the island where a very tired but positive fisherman stood. Soaking wet, cold, paralytic drunk and suffering with hyperglycemia due to sugar duck overdose, the fish inched its way with each turn of the reel. It took an age and more but a fair few hours later, a giant red surf-board shaped fish surfaced a few meters out. All the tiredness and effects of alcohol abuse subsided at the sight of this clonker of a fish. All that was required now was to get the mammoth Kouri Char onto the banks of the island. Each tug felt like towing the titanic, but after some specialised Fishing Kung Fu, the fish bobbed next my feet, but that is when reality pulled out a 12 gauge shotgun and aimed directly at my head, trigger primed. A quick flash-black to Winding Rivulet, reminded me of a fundamental issue that became apparent when reeling in a large asp; this would have been a lot easier if I purchased a landing net!. This little oversight returned in full force, I still hadn't purchased a landing net and now I was faced with the torture of being so close as to being able to touch this prize sized fish but unable to heave it up onto dry land. Everything failed, from the comical 'put the rod between your legs' and trying to lever it upwards, through to spinning on the spot like a ballerina and heavy rock music type head banging with the reel on close to breaking point friction brake settings. Nothing.. The fish just sat there bobbing in the side with one of its fins shaped like a middle finger wagging it towards my direction. Reality dawned once more, this was not going to happen, reality decided to pull the trigger of the already loaded shotgun. A black screen later and a windows desktop screen where Russian Fishing 4 once purred proudly  was all that remained. Grabbed my keys, jumped in the car and went for a drive to sooth the demons inside, close to forty minutes had dissolved into history fighting that fish, a few seconds was all it took to ALT F4 and break a heart. 

If there is something to take from that wall of text, buy a landing net.

 

True Story.

I would add one to the pot of campfire stories:

Few days ago I was fishing in Old Burg Lake at Cold Swamps peg, so I have decided to (ab)use rest of Yellow Bolies which have in stock for somewhile. Story goes as follows: 1. cast after a while medium sized Crucian Carp, 2 cast a while nothing happened so I have decided to recast. Clocks were ticking and still nothing and then bam, wham strike and bells on my trusty (and well abused) feeder rod started singing. So I lift the rod from holder, slighty tighten brake from 9 to 22/23 and of course whole reel sqeaking like dying animal, rod was bend like tree in storm. And of course I have seen brake overheat warning icon while I was running across Old Burg Lake shores (to prevent being spooled), my was leads from Cold swaps to wooden footpath-bridge and back to wooden bridge acrosss Frogs Creek where I finally land my fish after more than 12 ingame hours (and also few glases of vodka, sevela Monkey Colas and termos of tea) later and few bloody miles on my legs. Here is result (and my biggest fish landed  up todate). 

Gear used: Express Fishing Sorento FD 100 - Express Fishing Lacerti-S 4000S -Syberia Indiana 11 Lbs transparent mono line - Express Fishing Pear Sinker #4 (30 gms.) - Syberia CHSK501 #6 hook - Yellow Boilies

Can't believe developper team let things like this happend in a fishing GAME.

Yes i know i can move to an other place or change bait or go spinning or.......but there are so much things EXAGERATE in this game that i can simply not understand "why ???".

Developpers, you make the best fishing game on the market, no doubt at this but please try to better balance the game mechanic, it's not only frustrating, it become just ridiculous.

Thanks for reading and have a good work to make things in game better...

P. Burton from Belgium.

 

Im still in lvl22 about 2 months, I try everything, float I was 66% skill, Spin 35% and feeder 55%, 2 months and still lvl22, I dont know why, Ive spend 2 real hours everyday, but I didnt make 50 silvers, on Kuori as example, Ive fishing about 2h30m and only 3 fishes, 2 chars and um trout. Grasshopers, mayfly larva, hooks 6-2/0, Feeder I have a Westhill I won from LadyofGames on giveaway. So, idk what I do, cuz I watch everyday streamers and I try to do the same, but I dont have luck like streamers. RNG no work for me,

I see, so no Discussion, no Suggestion, no Other discussion topic, where we can just chat. That's one sneaky way of censorship, because one we start (even a reasonable) discussion somewhere, you can just delete with a reason, it was offtopic for that particular topic.
Not to mention deleting all the previous comments from above mentioned topics and hide it behind a Forum restructuring. You just hit the level of WarGaming. GG.

They deleted one of my posts where I suggested that the neat game mechanic "fish migration" could be responsible for not catching fish. Got a warning for spam as well. My third post in something like three days, spam. I can promise you that me and my friends will work hard to inform everyone on steam of this excellent mechanic and how Rigged fishing 4 handles things.

You're not helping the cause and don't shout at me :D


It depends on them if they matter or not, but if it's decided anything on this forum doesn't matter, cause they just delete/ignore them. That cast very dark shadow on them. It's always so easy to screw things up and lower reputation and so hard to put the reputation back up.
Until now even I naively believed we can change some things here and help it to get even better...

Grunzor, we've been at it for about a decade before you first heard about so called "big brother". So, to us it's a compliment that other projects follow in our steps. Must be doing something right.

EinarAfterglow, you having a hard time understanding the fish movement in the game doesn't make the game rigged. But your aggressive behavior and threats will lead to disciplinary measures on the forum.

Thats exactly the problem. There was only one topic that was active. Take a look at fish thread or water bodies one. No information. No discussions. Almost zero participation. And that’s exactly why this forum is created. To share, informs and discuss. So the answer to your question - please do have discussions but in the appropriate topics and in the civil manner. 

That is all we ask. 

Further more an announcement will be published shortly explaining what we are doing and why. As of right now just please bare with us while we transitioning. 

Thank you.

Ok..then stop moving posts. I posted something in Kuori Lake section and it got moved into Discussions ,so i kept posting there. And what we all ask from you guys ,is to take a look over our feedbacks, we feel like no one is reading what we say. A simply reply from you guys will make things better. Communication is the key to success. Thank you.

Why not take the challenge I spoke about in my last post on Discussions and come on the lake on the same live server on a spot where we all fish, to see you in chat and school us in the following:

1. What to do to NOT get  Perch on every lure, and get some decent fish.

2. What hooks to use to get big fishes. I posted already some screens with the biggest hooks in game Extra Large 4/0 and got the same 500 grams NON STOP.

3. How to find the FISH after they decided to  " Migrate "...after a spot depletion. ( I fished for the last 3 real days ) and once you get a set amount of fish in one spot- You can literally drag down the Kouri Lake and not get good bites...until the set amount for the player is reset ed.

4. How to hunt for Trophy...I have 0 in skills for Trophy and have like any other 1 trophy per 500 fish.......

Here's the perfect example of the comment bound for Kuori topic (except us doing the fishing ) and if you don't mind, that's exactly where I'll move it for further discussion.

Dear mod, if there were enough fish and decent sized fish caugjt by a player then why wouldnt someone share it. If u look at some of my posts in the kuoriake section i have to my utmost best tried to make that post active at that time when i used to get decent fish and when it was fun playing this game... But the the so called migration came inherited from the wildbeasts of africa i guess and fish got lost. Then what are we supposed to share? Proof of me encouraging ppl to post more can be found in my earlier posts u can track them back. But the main point is y do u think i stopped posting those pictures and sharing my experience?
