    To receive these two items, sign into Dovetail Live and go to the Online menu option. The items will unlock for you.

    Starting in November, winning and placing highly in our tournaments now bring you prizes in the form of clothing. Wear them with pride and let everyone in multiplayer know what they’re up against.
    Winners of weekly events will be awarded a ‘Champion’ t-shirt whilst 2nd and 3rd places will be awarded a ‘podium’ t-shirt. If you finish in the top 5% of all entries, you will earn a ‘series’ t-shirt.
    The same rewards are in place for the end of each season but hoodies as well as t-shirts are your prize.

    That’s our full list of fixes, improvements and rewards for this update. We are working on more updates so please keep your feedback coming. We hope we’ve addressed some of the points you’ve all referenced in reviews, forum comments and on social media - if we did, let us know!

    No Dovetail rewards,achievements haven't unlocked,game crashes if I try to access my equipment set ups in the customization screen,can't catch any fish in 3rd single player course tournament yet the AI seem like they are using a trawler,no boat spawns in the 2nd single player Bass tournament.This is just after about an hour & a half of playing.
    Not good enough.I think most people will give up if they have to completely re do all their achievements/trophy's again.

    We are looking into the lack of Dovetail Live rewards.

    Is your game crashing as soon as you go onto the customisation menu or is it when you attempt to make a change to something?

    Which platform are you playing on Ricardo? Is your game crashing as soon as you go onto the customisation menu or is it when you attempt to make a change to something?

    please install in your next update the changing day and night mode from Euro Fishing. Besides, the tench and bream have too much power and move too fast, this is very unrealistic. And the shadows of the trees on the Gigantica are not shown correctly, that is much better at other lakes succeeded. Otherwise, great job and keep it up!

    I am catching 20lb carp and large tench with both 12in and 4in hooks and 20MMS tiger nuts and bread crumbs....

    I target small fish and get the large carp on 7lb line too.....why? The size 4 hooks are bigger than the bench themselves that I catch.

    I've caught both walleye and bluegill on lake boulder in lilly bay area.. also still losing fish as you cant switch poles fast enough to hook said fish that animation of bending down to grab new pole really plays super slow on xbox one it has lost me a epic crap ton of fish in tourneys.. hook size seems to work better in carp tourney had 3 poles setup one with a 12 one with 8 and one with 4 hook size the size 12 got lots of roach rudd and perch with a few giant annoying as carp size 8 had a bit more carp then 12 but was mostly tench and breams... whole the size 4 was giant carp every hookup... also noticed line seems to work better as 50lb braid and drag of 35 to 45 got fish in quick... great update but if you could fine tune that stupid pole change animation or eliminate it be great going forward.... for those wondering on bait 12 was small fluro maggot size 8 was large imitation prawn and size 4 was the scb squid octopuss bait. Kept line at 50 lb braid never changed it to test others out yet.

    I don't get what you mean, I have never thought or agree that the animation between switching rods is to slow. What is all your rod setups when experiencing this issue?

    Carp tourneys work for me. Although I'm catching a lot of tench on 4in with SCB.

    Bass and pred tournaments, I catch one right away and then nothing, or maybe one more, by the end.

    Hey guys.. I done a quick video capture on the PS4.. this kinda bugs me.. The fish bouncing around like on a pogo stick and the fake splash sounds its making is unrealistic too. Hope you will work on a new patch the will improve on how the fish actually fight up close by the boat. Fish shouldn't be bouncing around like this. .

    i play on xbox one x in preview program running alpha updates..

    Its when swaping rods from peg now and then it acts weird and goes super slow motion on the animation not sure if its just latency lag when in online mode or some other issue on xbox one also cant get through animation quick enough on predator tourney if using swimbaits by time rod picks up its ethier a unsuccessful or poor hook up... lures in general fish seem to throw hooks very easy in this game if peg fishing and using plastic swimbaits or pro shads like a jig swaping between rods.

    Trophies were not tracking correctly before and so you will need to complete the requirement for the achievement again. We apologise for the inconvenience.

    What equipment are you using in your custom tackle boxes? Can you access the inventory without crashing when you are on a lake?


    We will be putting in a fix for this.

    Is this in all modes or only in certain modes?

    We will have a look into this.

    Thank you for the video. I'll pass it over to the developers so they can look into it

    Some videos showing how broken fish spawners are on waldsee way more carp types then anything else spawn need to tweak them somewhat to have less carp spawn for each of the species and up the other fish spawns but the European Perch can catch those all day there on fluro maggots or swimbait gold.
    video 1


    video 2


    video 3



    please don't do what you did to gigantica that was un needed as you can go 20 minutes without a bite there - need to re up numbers slightly there of all species.

    to get fish to circle in waldsee like this I used a couple rat l traps sitting in water off dock while moving one around.

    @ DGT_Stephen, as soon as I try to move the "cursor" onto any custom set ups the game just crashes to the dash whether in the main menu or on a lake.
    Would love to tell you what equipment I have in them but can't.
    The 3 default set ups are fine,can access those with no issues but the second you try and pick a custom set that's it,game crashes.

    Hi Stephen it is in all the modes i think it occurs when you change the settings i.e the weather and time as i found that not changing this i could get on lakes also i am experiencing the same crash when changing tackle out on the lake and in the customisation tab on the home screen . Gigantica is now pointless had 2 fish in a hour yesterday i fell that you have reduced the bite rate too much for this lake.

    Totally agree on that. I don't even go to Gigantica anymore. It went from the top lake to the worst. I agree that it needed a bit of toning down , but they went overboard and killed it way too much.

    Are you able to make changes to the default ones or does that cause the game to crash?

    Thanks for the videos Duncan, I will pass these over to our development team.

    We will have a look into the issues trying to load a lake. We are working on a fix for the tackle box issue.

    I will pass this feedback on Wikus.

    I can change the default set ups just fine.
    It's not game breaking.Just have to be careful not to scroll to far when in a tournament etc. as it'll crash the game.
    Already did that in this weeks predator tournament,went to change something & accidently scrolled to far right onto a custom set up & game crashed.

    I play on PS4 with same person all the time. We have to take turns making the room because 2nd person is always at a disadvantage. Mainly because when you have landed the fish, when it has given up before net comes out, you have to wait a good 10-20 seconds extra before the fish net comes out. And sometimes you lose the fish because your drag line goes down to ZERO waiting for this to happen. Maker of room doesn't have these problems.

    On boat lakes it is even worse and you still get that choppy crazy low frame rate and you spin round and round, and some fish you have to wait 30 extra seconds to land. Also, in any online game with a friend, one of you can get kicked out of room precisely when the other is landing a fish. So it is still the same problems as before the update.

    on PS4 October tourneys are done and I finished overall in 9th place. It is hard to believe I didn't finish in top 5% of all PS4 players??? No t-shirt for me? All tourneys had well over 200 players, so overall should be more than 200 players. Top 10 place with 200 players exactly should be top 5%. So did anyone get a t-shirt for finishing high or on Podium?

    We are currently investigating multiplayer issues.

    The clothing rewards for tournaments will start being given out for tournaments in the November Dovetail Fishing League. You will receive your first set of rewards after this week's tournaments.

    It will be fixed with our next update.

    The update is coming out very soon. We are aiming to do 1 per month.

    Sounds great DTG!
    But, last night I played the Match Tourney (PS4) on a Bass Boat with 1 rod of course. The top of the leaderboards show several guys well over 50, 80, 90 fish, top of boards is 101 fish. This is the 1st time I have seen the leaderboards where it is obvious someone found a glitch and exploited it like in Euro Fishing it happened all the time. It is impossible to catch 101 fish in 1 hour with 1 rod. I sure hope DTG will investigate numbers like this and fix the glitch. If not it will KILL this game for me. I am hooked on the weekly Tourneys!
