    Patch Update Notes

    We are pleased to announce that our fixed patch is ready to be released now that it has successfully passed the Microsoft certification process. We appreciate the frustration that the delay has caused but we hope that you agree that this update sees a great improvement. We refer you to the previous patch notes released for this build, which can be found below, but would also like to highlight the following improvements and fixes that have been made;

    • Line tension has been improved so that the line will no longer go slack on its own accord

    • Fish no longer tire instantly after striking when float fishing

    • Rod physics have been improved and now take on a much more realistic bend when fighting a fish

    • ‘Floating Line’ no longer happens after casting and putting the rod down

    • Rigs no longer drift from position in the lake once they are on the bottom of the lake bed

    • Fish AI has been improved, the fish now swim slower and more realistically with deliberate movements when trying to spit the hook.

    Previous Patch Notes

    • This build aims to prevent fish from being able to swim onto the bank. We have spent over a week testing this and have not seen it happen at all. However, we cannot replicate it being played by the 10’s of thousands of you so if anyone does experience a fish going onto land, please let us know the details including which lake and which peg within that lake.



    • Line ‘snapping’ randomly has also been fixed and should not happen anymore. As above, if anyone does still experience this then let us know!



    • Multiple takes – now if you are playing a fish and get a fish on your second rod, you will have 2 minutes before that fish escapes. If you are lucky enough to get a bite on your third rod, you will have 4 minutes before that fish escapes.



    • We have updated UE4 to version 4.12.5



    • We have changed the way our physics system works so that fish now behave more realistically and make the fight feel smoother.



    • Megladon – Our biggest catfish has proved very tricky to catch so we have made it slightly easier to get him to take your bait (but we aren’t telling you how!)


    • Surface tension on the line so that it now floats on the water when necessary.



    • Improvement to the reel mechanics – there is a proper correlation to the amount of line reeled in against the turning of the reel handle.



    • Fixed clients sometimes being unable to connect to multiplayer games hosted under the same NAT.



    • Optimised several assets in multiple lakes


    The following have also been fixed in this update

    • A soft lock will occur in the 'Baiting' tutorial if the user walks away from the peg.


    • Score is taken in Challenges when the casting goes out of bounds and is pulled into the water.



    • Steam profiles are not displayed after selection in the leaderboards.



    • Rod selection and pick up rod buttons lose functionality when opening tournament map.



    • Opening and closing the pause menu causes the line to be reeled in a small amount.



    • Progress in the Academy (tutorial) stages can be blocked by using a reel exploit.



    • If the hook bounces on the water during a Distance challenge, it counts as two casts.



    • Music plays throughout single player tournaments that is only intended to play at the beginning.



    • Score is taken in Challenges when the casting goes out of bounds and is pulled into the water.


    There are the following issues on the Xbox platform that will be fixed very shortly;

    • Issue with multiplayer in which if the client loads faster than the host they simultaneously select the same peg. Clients then can't put down their rod and have to quit and re-start the session.

    • If you cast your spod rod out and immediately put it down, the game will freeze. If you reel in or wait a few seconds as you normally would, there is no issue.
    • Leaderboards don't currently show you Friends scores, though the worldwide scoreboard is working.

    Installed the update.. looked forward to a session.. disappointed not long after.. I dont know who does your testing for you but within 10 minutes of starting, a major game breaking bug appeared, fighting a fish at Linear, fish just stops swimming, cant reel, no amount of drag can move it, line completely slack from rod to fish, sound of reel still playing and line going out sound still playing, but nothing, still move rod but nothing happening, exited, restarted, same again. The update may have fixed what you wanted it to, but now we have other bugs that stop us from playing, I really hoped the game would have been improved by now but sadly, it hasn't. who do i need to contact for a refund?.

    I had this issue in the first lake, while a fish in my rod being unable to be catched because of that reeling up glitch. I was on the very far east peg point, also, I catched the fish very near the foliage, using the first hook designed to foliage, I forgot its name.
    Another opportunity it happened while was raining and with strong water flow, using the first silt hook, where my bait was drifting in the bottom of the lake and after a fish strike the bait, it was surprisingly out of water, showing the icon with a X again.

    Well i've fished on L'Arene and The Observatory so far with no problems and even bagged 'Carley' the monster Roach : ) For those with 'freeze' issues maybe try clear Xbox cache or there is a known issue with the spod rod if people didn't know(its in the patch notes) I like the new reel mechanic its much more realistic and i've enjoyed playing again....Thanks DTG and looking forward to whatever future plans you have for the game.

    Don't use Spod. It's a known glitch freeze up. Pick appropriate hooks and baits and catch em. Check your leaderboard right now for fridays tourney. Size 8 KD rig, large sweetcorn, and 12 dumbell sinker, KD Iq-d with a hi vis pop up. The guy in first place, Chris Malakof posted that number before the patch. My number is legit

    People were catching ridiculous amounts of fish while you weren't able to play, by cranking their drag to 100 and ripping them in. Those guys days are done. I'm going to to tell you everyday, exactly what to use, and ruin those guys fun. It wasn't fun not knowing, I taught myself. Now they can't rip them in with 100 drag. See how the game changes

    Don't need Spod at all, avoid using it in tourney, so as not to cause calamity. Chiggity check yourself, before you wreck yourself
