    So, we’ve now caught over 300 fish on Oxlease without a single boss fish rearing their pretty little heads! I can appreciate making it take a little longer and a little more effort, but we’ve probably been playing for about 20 hours and frankly this is taking the smeg now!

    I was pretty much thinking the same thing m8. luckily I managed to get 2 of the Boss eventually! both from same peg (35) close to the reeds 15 yards out on the left. Theres some weed abit further out but I had them off the silt. Stench and illuminatio, had them pretty quickly aswell within 30 mins of fishing. Hope this help, tight lines

    Try Peg 34, I caught this beauty today while streaming, 2nd boss fish from the lake to complete the mastery I do feel that Oxlease is a extremely difficult lake to catch them, I also caught another named fish near the island but hope this helps you try and catch maybe the same or even different But peg 34 cast off to the right about 15-25 yards and this happened to be my last fish I caught before closing the stream

    What hook do you use? I always seem to get mixed up with hooks as there so many choices

    I think I was using a size 4 silt hook, I only ever fish for silt beds, but you gotta match your hook with your baits. I use size 2 normally but it rarely had a bite because I tend to think using the bigger hook catches the bigger fish which is right, but you can always catch say like a 20-50lb fish on a size 10-8-6 hook as well as a 4. You just gotta study the lake, which is what I’ve been doing

    You should fish on a size 4 hook use citrus pink boillies if that doesn’t feel successful use pineapple two tone and also cheese seems really good for me and the source boillie

    Nice!! I think BlackJack & Frank were 2 of the most fun Bossfish I've reeled in so far. Fishing for Bass with spinner, spoon, & crank lures by the bridge spawn has been hands down the best fun at Pearl for me. Dragging in Dead Bodies(Aripaima) gets old quick.

    Thing is, arapaima are not " dead bodies" in the real world. They are one of the biggest fish known to jump out of the water when you hook them. They are very quick and very hard to bring in. Wish we could get that in game.

    Yeah, I'm sure they're a great workout Irl. I'm grateful for them in game, hopefully they'll continue to tweak the behaviors on all the fish. The Salmon in game drive me nuts. They're some of the strongest, fast fighting fish you can hook into. Not very well done in game unfortunately. Same with the pike, yeah, they pull hard in game but, they are a much faster, aggressive fish to land. Not to mention you wouldn't dare catch one without running a steel leader but, no where to be found in game!
