    Whenever a fish is close and net icon appears the reel stops reeling in line completely.
    This causes line slag and the player having to resort to trying to pull the fish in completely by ripping the rod backwards like when fishing with fixed line without a reel. Causes lots of big fish lost as you are unable to get big fish close enough by just ripping the rod backwards due to the reel not reeling in line. The fish continues to just swim away from you as the reel-in is non-existent at this stage and fish just snaps off being unable to be netted.

    Kept hearing about this but never encountered it until yesterday.I changed reels & then it happened twice in a row,both with big fish on.Exactly how you've described it.

    It's definitely a new issue. It wasn't like this in the past. I think it happened during last update.

    I have also noticed this now it does seem to happen on all lakes and as daft badger said it seemed for me to happen more often after i changed hooks from gravel to silt also happened upon changing reels too.

    Yeah,wasn't a problem before the new lake came out.There's a lot of people on the facebook groups reporting the same thing.
    See if they say anything in todays stream about it.
