    Other thread was getting graphic intensive so I will finish out here on the big fish. This maybe another boss hotspot at the peg to the left of the bent willow. I have picked up two bosses here and seen a third in video. chris' pet.png weeds.png

    Hardwick Linear under the bent willow. Actually doubled on him and then caught the Pretty One (like this sixth time now...she is such a friendly fish). Hardwick Linear.png Hardwick location.png The bait is about 9 yards out.

    Do you not find the bait drifts from right to left in that location?

    Yes, until it reaches the location in the pic. Every time regardless of 8, 9, or 10 yard casts. But I consistently get strikes WHILE the bait is drifting, particularly when I have been using the spod generously. So, it hasn't impeded my success on the heavy tackle.

    Casting straight ahead in that swim then spodding slightly to the right, letting your bait drift into it has served me well (between 6 to 10yrds) caught all my bf this way & it's done well in live tournaments

    This! Thanks, tracko644!

    It seems like the area of effect for the spod is large, maybe 8 yards in diameter so getting close works. I pitch it underhand and let the rod tip follow the spod to the water to keep it from bouncing back. Works most of the time.

    Using an extreme distance rod gives you about 10yrds underarm, which usually drifts back towards you so I set one at max then reduce the distance for each one thereafter & you're right about the spod rod, cast max & push forward on the rod to stop it jumping back & the spod will drift back also (from 10 back to 6/5 yrds) hence bringing the other rods back. Works for me, hope it helps

    Finally, Birthmark Linear showed up! I am fishing right inside the seam between gravel and weeds. birthmark linear.png birthmark location.png

    This was a really strange session. Caught the Mint Common three times and Chris' Pet twice, fishing the weed line at Peg 11. The weed line runs from the left all the way to the right just shy of the bent willow. It was an active session, to say the least. Sim speed was default (1 hour = 1 day) and I fished from 7:00 to 21:15. mint common.png mint common location.png

    So, here is my count for the named carp so far:
    Popeye 3X
    Cut Tail 5X
    Chris's Pet 3X
    Birthmark Linear 1X
    Kempy's Linear 4X
    Mr. Ridiculous 2X
    Spike 2X
    Hardwick Linear 2X
    The Other Linear 1X
    Two Tone 3X
    Mint Common 3X
    The Pretty One 6X

    That leaves The Unnamed Common, Pinhead, and the Big Ghostie. 34 bosses but I have not seen the boss catfish.

    No essoxlucious, there is a problem that Dovetail are aware of and are currently looking in to fix.
    See the forum thread "Missing boss fish" for details.

    Another forum member suggested this is a boss hot spot, although I think he was on the peg to the left and may have been fishing at 70 yards in the gravel. I doubled up on Unnamed Common, and pulled in Cut Tail in the same session. I think our forum colleague is right, it is a hotspot! unnamed.png unnamed location.png

    I have caught pinhead twice now. Both times at peg 15 using the TNT. Once in the weeds straight across, and once casting toward the point across the lake and to the left.

    Anyone had any luck with pin head mirror or spike? Only 2 I need from the catchable carp on this lake.
    I've tried peg 15 as suggested for pin head but no joy :|
    If anyone can share locations, baits, rigs etc it would be very much appreciated :)

    Peg 7 Hotspot.png Yeah, I have caught spike 3 or 4 times, just caught him yesterday under the bent willow. The boss locations seem to work on a random list of bosses, as in I am pretty sure I might hook one in a hotspot but which one seems totally random. Just put The Other Linear and The Unnamed Common on the bank at Peg 7. Here is my location.

    Yeah, Micky...TNT 18 mm. It was one of those days where I was just grinding out cast/spod/cast/spod on a single line hoping the dice roll would turn up Pin Head...

    If I am calculating even a bit close that area has multiple features: weeds, gravel, and a bar that only goes to 5 feet or less all concentrated there.

    I've now managed all the carp multiple times except for the ghost carp. Has anyone from DTG confirmed that the other boss fish are not currently catchable? On the boss fish page it's basically ghostie from the first page and the entire second page that I haven't had a sniff of and get the impression no one else has either...

    Congrats! You must have found The Pin Head! I don't know that DTG have confirmed a problem but they have acknowledged they are looking at it. Basically, just as you described...all the other bosses aren't showing...no one is catching them.

    Dovetail confirm there is an issue with this game? :|:D:| Come on now they will look into it (while keeping their mouths firmly shut) until the next DLC is released then they may have fixed an issue or 2 all while adding a further 3 issues to the game in the process.

    Well, somehow I ended up stranded in a swamp in Louisiana chasing catfish. Did the Ghostie get caught? Any pics?

    Hahaha very few here will understand that one. But I know the feeling. I get lost in Florida all the time. :) I have not seen any reports of Ghostie being caught yet no. And there has been a lot of discussion the past week and a half on Manor's bosses , tips , locations etc. , myself have done many hours. But nobody said they caught Ghostie. One of the players mentioned somewhere in one of these threads that it's still the one he/she is missing.
