    Or changed after update. Also it takes forever to reel in any fish now.

    Definitely issues with predators. Carp seems same and bass actually seem better can up drag up a little more. Predators now also take way longer to get in so if you do predator career you get 20 mins and a 30 lb fish can possibly take that long so you will run out of time or lose to the one who catches a bunch of small gar or pike

    Bass drag setting / line tension is still broken , 50lb line 2lb bass have to put the drag setting down to 14 , and it still goes to the top. The bass fishing is a joke , absoluteley nothing like real life fishing.
    And 80lb line makes no difference for how long it takes to get 30 to 70lb carp , or other speices in.
    Also it takes way too long to land the 100lb+ fish, 5 minutes is long enough for me.

    I’m starting to see it more now with the bass . At lake Johnson I didn’t see issue but I see it everywhere else. I really see it with the muskies and pikes. Hope they make the bass and predators come in easier. If you used 80 lb test and caught a 10 lb bass you could literally rip it right out of the water and for a 40 lb Muskie that would take maybe a15 mins real time with 80 lb test.

    Well maybe you shouldn't use 80 lb line to catch bass? That's not what it's meant for. The developers even said that in the stream last week. 14 lbs fc should be plenty! Even to reel in Marshall .

    I don’t. I normally use 12 to 20lb test for bass but wanted to see if it was doing the same thing with 80lb test. I think most pro bass fisherman use about the same. I believe they are tweaking the bass fight a little. I really notice the predators though that no matter what line you pick they are fighting for much longer then they used to hope they can tune that down some.

    I did a little experimenting and if you put the black 50 lb test on and keep drag at 25 you should catch them all. You can go higher on drag up to like 35 I’d say but when bass runs you drop the rod to the water fast and stop realing or it will break off. That so far is the best method I have come across. I find with the other line types very little distance. When I use the 14 lb test I got my drag bouncing between 10 and 20 and are constantly fighting the drag to not lose the fish and land it within a reasonable time. Seems all fish are taking too long to get in. I think they are aware of this and will fix it.
