    Hello everyone,,
    Decided to invest some time on Waldsee over the past few days, mainly as it offers the widest range of species and size.

    I've probably already made my point to death on too many carp in the game, so I'll leave that for now.

    Lots of people have been complaining about bite rates and I couldn't agree more, absolutely no point having 3 x rods as you just showbox.bio/ tutuapp.uno/ vidmate.vet/ can't keep up. I have suggested changing bite rates to directly be proportionate to the bait size and hook already, I.e small hooks and maggots get you lots of bites of small species and vice versa for the larger end of the scale.

    The reason for this post is more about bite rates from each species. Unless I'm doing something completely wrong Rudd and Ghost carp are almost impossible to hook. I am way into the many hundreds of fish caught on the game but have only managed one Rudd and Ghost carp to now.
    Roach, not quite as bad but again it doesn't matter what method/bait I use... they turn up once in a blue moon.

    Catfish I have just got into double figures but as there isn't a real stack of waters with them in, I'm fine with that for now.

    I've managed Perch only on lures, not one on a traditional hookbait ... not sure if it's possible or not?

    Of course bar the Ghost carp, I have hundreds of carp. Bream seem more regular than Eurofishing and tench about the same.

    I'm not sure if this is by design, bugs or my skill level but something certainly needs to be done with the catch rates of certain species while other (Yes carp!) Need to be dialed right down.

    It would be quite interesting if on a new venue the developers play the stock card differently and it results in more believable species bite rates. For fun let's say a lake is created and they go down the line of promoting it only has a small head of tench, so I'm not expecting to catch tench at all really but when one turns up it feels an achievement. Much like in real life when you manage to hook something that you only had heard about being in the water.

    Sadly i doubt anything will be done about this, it's been the same since a few months into the euro fishing EA/beta , the bite rates were really good then they decided to up the bite rates to how they are now and they never returned .. they obviously have their reasons and i suspect it's simply because of the Consoles, gotta keep them from falling asleep you know.

    if it was PC only i imagine they would do something.
