    I feel everyone's pain with this. I've lost 5 boss fish due to this now and it's actually putting me off playing. In addition to the above lakes, I have also experienced this bug on Digger Lakes too.

    This is definitely a major bug, PLEASE fix!!

    Also, not sure if any of the above would agree - but I feel this becomes more frequent when fishing close to a bank.

    i feel your pain lost count of how many fish have been lost because of this i have looked everywhere online and have found that fish dont grow legs and walk on land like they do in the game :) it happens on all maps.. but i have also found that on some parts over ever map that there is places where you hook will just keep falling under the map

    Not that I want to be the bearer of bad news for you new PS4 players, but we've had this issue since day one on the XB1 version also PC have had it aswell, apparently they did fix it in a patch a while ago, but it still happened after, it seems like you guys have the build that was plagued constantly with the walking fish, seems weird they didn't just use the most up to date build, I like this game I do, but its been a let down for a long time now, this new lake they are on about, they told is about it at least six months ago and still they just keep saying it's coming soon!. Same with other new things, tackle, new fish species, better reel and fish fight mechanics, all coming soon!.. Yes its a small team, but they can only use that excuse so many times!. Enjoy it if you can, if you can't I'd say get a refund if you can.

    Thankyou for letting us know everyone, we are looking into this issue as, as it has been mentioned here, it has been present for a while now.

    there are alot of places where your hook will just keep drifting under the map from aplace where it says 5ft deep ends up like 47ft then goes to 0.0ft

    Really hope this can be fixed as I have so many friends (fishing and non fishing) that have asked me if its any good I would love to yes its great without having to say its great BUT........
    with the fix I think this game could sell so much better, I am sure there is at least one person put off for each person that talks about this games problems.
    I have at least 4 friends that have said they will wait to see if the bugs are fixed before buying it.

    How long? As I'm currently about to try and get a refund. This is happening far too often now and the game is basically unplayable.

    Ive lost 5 fish on st johns this way & they were all boss fish, could just be a coincidence or a problem with boss fish.

    I will add:
    I used to play (alot) on xbox one last year & the problem doesn't seem to be as bad as it used to be. It would happen alot more frequently on my favorite pegs then it does now.

    I have found feathering L2 and dragging them off the land with the rod helps. Even netted one on the land last night. Stupid bug though
    Edit: update, was playing again today and had a nightmare of a time with fish deciding they wanted to go for a walk and snapping the line 90%of the time. No matter what I tried

    It's a shame, I love the game but my record is so bad when it comes to losing boss fish!! I fight with a big catfish on St. John's or the Spanish lake and then it grows legs and snaps my line on land!! Seriously need to sort this out dovetail because I am very close to deleting the game (which sucks because I really enjoy it) :(

    We're aware of the fish swimming onto land and how frustrating this is. We're working on a fix that will be rolled out as soon as possible and we will keep you updated as and when we have definitive dates

    What you have to do is lower the drag a bit and use the right stick to drag the fish , Pretend you have a 400lb catfish on the line, you need to pull it away from the land..


    When you pull stop reeling then reel pull and so on.Keep a eye on the bar on the left........just tap reel so it doesn't break.



    Do this until the patch comes. Should work for fish 70lb and below.

    Then don't play on the Spanish lake. More to fishing then reeling in huge fish..... I have noticed all the mutliplayer games are this one lake. There are other lakes while you wait for this bug to be fixed.

    Yes must be as xbox had this bug last year. All they did to fix it was stop the line breaking on land. The fish still goes onto the land.

    Dovetail surely you can put a barrier around each lake to stop the fish grounding them selves? Shouldn't be hard to do, also can you fix the spod rod bouncing back at you, are we getting new features such as : pole fishings, more pools lakes canels sea?, how about letting us choose the spod mix, using the chair and bivvy, how about letting your friend pick up your rod when your busy playing a fish? How about customize our character? More species of fish barbel, chub pike perch the list is endless

    AI fish logic.... which is AI paths yes. But they will need to do that for every spawn on every lake.

    Nah I'm not play this game until they patch it twice I've lost the biggest fish because he when on land. This should of been fixed before release as all the other system have had this bug.

    IMO you're taking too long to patch this.
