    This game is a mess. I have just caught a 9lbs Bream using size 4, 30lbs line, and Tiger Nut 20mm. I also caught a 6lbs Bream & 9lbs Tench using size 4, 30lbs line, and SOS 20mm. So now with this update, I am going to have to pick my way through small bream and tench to get to the big fish! I actually prefer this game back in the day when fish would bank walk, at least then you know you would only catch carp and Cat fish on size 4 hooks.

    New update, and still the broken fish haven't been fixed, well done you have lost the last little faith I had in you! I think I am done with this game once I have got all achieves on the new lake.

    Update after update, no fix for broken boss fish (I doubt this will ever get fixed)
    Static lake removed and replaced with a pathetic new version
    Can catch small bream on size 4 hook on 20mm Tiger Nuts:mad::o

    Seriously Dovetail, do you do any testing at all before releasing updates? Almost every update you guys release breaks something as well as fixing stuff.

    As I said on another thread the fact they don't believe any of the fish to be broken means they haven't even touched that issue at all in my opinion. This has become a trend with Euro Fishing (the multiplayer being broken for everyone but the host, Spod rod jumping back 20 yrds ect. ) and sorry to say I believe this is the modus operandi of this Dev team, deny the issues and hope the vocal minority give up and disappear.

    Here's a challenge to the Euro Fishing team, go do a livestream every weekend using standard consumer hardware and current release version of the game (no debug build) and prove us wrong that these issues are in our heads and you genuinely cannot replicate them in house.

    Have to say I'm getting fed up with this. Keep bringing out new lakes but not fixing the old ones, a very poor show. Not buying anymore DLC until I can finish the ones I got

    Here you go, 7lbs Tench on 30lbs line, size 4 hook and Pop up Tiger Nuts 20mm.

    I have been fishing one hour and caught 20 fish, only 4 of those have been carp weighting over 20 lbs.

    Well based on your fantastic review SPACE ODDITY I think it's best to abandon this game, much like the developers have!

    What's funny, is that when I saw I had a update for the game, the first thing I thought is ''ohh, what have they broke now''

    They are useless, how they got nominated for an award puzzles me.

    I am fishing on Waldsee, and I am struggling catching fish over 20lbs. I am mostly getting Tench & Bream on size 4 with Tiger Nuts 20mm. I swear If I hook a roach, I will shut game and uninstall lol :D

    This is truly sad. I’m guessing we have to wait another month for them to fix the hooks again, which will more than likely break whatever still works in this game.

    It seems like more gets broken with each update. Instead of trying to fix the boss fish or line snapping issues, they mess with the hook sizes. Unless the point of that was to revert the August update and see if any of them could be caught?

    Anyways, if I knew they wouldn’t care about achievements and leave them unobtainable for months, I would have never gotten myself into this mess.

    Basically the state the game is in now. If you want big fish, use small hooks. If you want small fish, use big hooks. What a F$#k up!

    In three straight casts, all with the same setup, I catch a tench, Sunrise, and a tench. All with a size 4 hook. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised to catch a marlin next. I don’t get it.

    Also, it seems like they made the wildlife much more aggressive lol. The first time I walk to the dock after the update, the birds were so damn loud and aggressive, I had to pick up my bucket, tent, and the rest of my broken equipment and head to the other side of the lake.

    its worrying but maybe once the last dlc is out they can turn their attention solely on the uncatchable bosses

    We know its a small team, and I totally understand that.... but with it being 5 months since it was first reported that the Big Ghostie on Manor Farm Lake is broken, and countless new Lakes/Baits/Equipment being added to the game during that time... it's no excuse.

    The problem with Dovetail, is they put small bugs like audio glitches & Audio improvements for footsteps above actual bigger problems like uncatchable boss fish/float fishing/broken spod rod.

    Don't get me wrong, and I know I have been very negative about Euro Fishing lately.... but Its only because I care about the game. I am a achievement hunter, and once I finish a game I normally move onto something else. Euro Fishing & Minecraft are the only two games I actually play after 100% the achievements.

    Is it me, but are Tiger Nuts next to useless now for targeting big carp and cat? Tiger Nuts 20mm have always been my primary bait for targeting boss carp and cat, and I have nearly caught every boss carp/cat in the game with this bait. It even says in the description that tiger nuts are a awesome carp bait. I have been fishing Waldsee since update, and all I seem to catch on Tiger Nuts 20mm is small tench. Its got to the point that I am not going to use Tiger Nuts anymore.

    I understand you can basically catch anything on whatever bait you use in real life, but seriously the game feels very unbalanced since last update. Its not fun having to dig through countless tench to get to the odd carp. I haven't had one 30lbs carp on Waldsee using tiger nuts since update, I don't now if its the same on other lakes?. I so hope this is not how the game is intended to be from now on.

    If they have time and manpower to create a new lake every month then they should have time to fix bugs as well.

    just caught a 45 lbs catfish (No Boss) at Waldsee on size 10 Rig and 10mm dumbell and a 3lbs tench at Foundry Dock on size 4 rig and 20mm tigernut. Very realistic Dovetail......
    Almost every update makes the game more and more crappy
