    Haven’t had any trouble catching bass during career mode up until now. Los Molinos Championship on Lago Del Mundo I’ve been lucky to catch maybe 3 bass for the first round but yet the computer competitors are reeling in 20+lbs worth of a catch in first round....will literally have bass jumping all around the boat but nope...seems to me this particular event is bugged...

    Noticed same thing. Yeah I’m not sure if it is bugged but I’ve struggled with Lago in amateur, pro, and elite. I noticed it was cooler temps which may of had something to do with catch rate. Bestii for carp is same way only for carp career. I wish we could pick which events to include in the season. We purchase the DLC we should be able to have options to include or exclude them from season to season. I would exclude Lago for bass.

    Yeah that’d be nice. I didn’t have too much of a problem at lago in the amateurs but in the pro it seems almost impossible. Best I’ve weighed in at for the first round was a little over 14 lbs and was still placed in 89th -.-

    The levels go up so when you get to elite you need at least 32 lbs to finish top 3 in the round at the first lake. Pro is usually around 22. Only thing I have been able to do is scout ahead in practice but it may not be the same conditions and know where I’m going in a hurry and hope I catch a bass in the first 2 minutes and a big one before the time runs out which I have had way too many times a real big one on the line and time ran out. Horrible having a 15 lb bass on for 4 minutes just to lose it. I said in an earlier post I think they should implement sliders and one would be fish fight time so if you slide it to left it’s the quickest time to bring it in and if you slide it to the right it’s like bringing in an arapaima. If they implement the sliders game will be perfect with minimal patching. Then they can work on the stock ponds.

    Yeah fighting bass has become a little ridiculous in the game honestly. As someone who fishes any chance I get I find myself laughing at the bass fights in game. Even at 25% drag on a rod with 20lb test line reeling in a 5 lb bass is literally nothing lol. In game ohhhh no 2 lb bass will fight like it weighs 20lbs lmao

    Oh I agree I feel the smaller bass are harder in a lot of ways. IRL I use 8-10 lb test unless it’s heavy cover then I would go 12-20. In the game i use 14-20 Fluor and get a ton of strikes but wow it’s a workout to get the bass in. I did hear though they said they were tuning the landing times down at least for the bass. Muskies and Pike well that’s another story. Arapaima wow if you haven’t caught one of them yet they take sometimes over 20 mins.

    I flew through the first season with crazy bags but can't even place in second season or even offline tournies anymore.

    I noticed same thing and on 3rd season repeated pro bass tour and tried different places to fish did ok but was horrible on Lago and Dylan. My second season was pitiful though. I did buy the heddon baby bass at start of 3 rd season and it caught me fish. On Elite you need different colors for all 3 rods because of the dynamic weather changes. One thing I did see was that the boat launch areas have fish try not to move to much and fish the area around the launch. On lake Williams I did win that on pro and elite because the fish were near the docks.

    Twitching? What’s that? Press the right trigger as fast as you can while reeling at 1 speed?

    On a livestream they said they're looking on fixing/refining Twitching retrieval. To be fair the latest update did make retrieval recognition much better, from what I've noticed, so that's a good sign at least.

    The twitch is tricky. Try speed 2 or 3 hold left trigger and twitch with the right stick at a 1,2 count. Also there is a video on YouTube on this. Hope this helps.

    See in the tutorial for retrievals to twitch the rod was RT on xbox so your now saying it is easier to acheive the correct technique for twitching using the right stick.

    Yeah I saw a video on YouTube and I tried it and it seems to work better or at least the twitch word comes up now.
