    I've noticed a few issuse with when you get the fish in close it would somehow swim under you and then instantly line tension goes mad and you loose the fish. It's happened a good few times. I've tried giving slack and putting the drag right down but doesn't help.

    Other thsn that a fantastic game! I've been following your progress since you announced on pc. Waited a good few years for this to come out on xbox and you haven't disappointed! Keep up the goid work guys!

    Hi Harry

    We have contacted Xbox about this issue and they have given us these two suggestions to try so after you've tried them if you could let us know whether or not they worked that'd be great. [1] Press and hold the power button on the front of the console for 30 seconds and then then switch back on (this will fully shutdown the system from the Instant-on mode). And / or [2] Turn the console off and pull out the power cord, then plug back in and switch back on. If that doesn’t help, please contact Xbox customer support team for more in-depth assistance.

    Hi Jay

    We are aware of the fish going under the bank and the issues with the drag system. However you'll be glad to know that we are actively working on a fix for it as we speak.

    Hi

    I've noticed recently that sometimes after casting the rod number disappears altogether. Also long casts seem to do the same thing. Absolutely loving the game, well done guys :)

    clearing the persistent storage may help too.

    To clear this storage cache, follow the below procedure:
    1. Press the menu key of the controller.
    2. Go to Settings > Disc & Blu-Ray.
    3. In the BLU-RAY section select "Persistent Storage".
    4. Select "Clear persistent storage".

    Just fished an online match at St Johns.
    Struck into a good bite and after a really long fight a catfish surfaced...its silhouette took up almost
    all my swim, looked like a bloody submarine.... I dropped the landing net..and suddenly the fish shrunk to weigh in at 8lb lol

    Very nice game but nobody wants to be the host because of a great loss of many fish. I host a lot but caught over 2000 fish but also lost the same amount because of the hosting problem.

    Hello dovetail team
    Trying to go into live tournaments and the game crashes. Doesn't happen ever time but it is happen, just thought you would like to know. You lose a total of 6 minutes when it happens.

    I keep getting kicked out of the big tourneys. I tried the desert tournament and it would let me pick my fast travel point and soon as the lake pops up it cuts off back to the Xbox home page. Bad thing is it starts the timer and by the time I sync the game and load it back up around 5 to 7mins have ticked off the clock. So I actually missed 25 to 30 mins (total) or longer due to this. I have seen a few other ppl post under the Xbox 1 about the same issue. Was thinking maybe as a quick fix the timer could start when the first cast is made or when 1st hook hits the water. Love the game and hope you guys can patch this up.

    I don't know if it is a bug or not. But a friend told me the next matter and i tried it succesfully.
    When you pull in your line you can use a sort of autopilot. Just hold LT and press start on your controller en directly release LT. Then you see that your xbox can be your best friend and takes over the reeling itself. Very cleverly when the phone starts ringing or when you have to go to the toilet.

    The fishes even don't give a fight like that and caught mowgally (catfish 27kg) without doing anything.

    It's a great game but it really need some bug fixes.
    Particularly the biggest issue with hosting a game. As you can see i host a lot of games. But losing more fishes then catching them because of hosting ;(.

    Losing fish in a fight is obviously but not funny to lose most of the fishes by hosting like you can see in the screen shot. Also did lose 121 target fishes at the moment because of that :(

    And some times when a line snaps it's about 200 meters further. No problem but after reeling it in (you can't use RB at that moment), the image rotates 90 degrees like you can see in the picture. After catching another fish, it goes back to normal.

    For whatever reason I have zero issues hosting a lobby. I only run into issues if I join someone elses lobby. The game uses a peer to peer server set up. I don't think there is any kind of built in region filter as I have people from all over join my games. It could be something as simple as the amount of bandwidth the host has. You can check your bandwidth from your Xbox by going to Settings>>Network>>Detailed Network Statistics. Not sure what amount of bandwidth would consistently be enough, but Ive got 85mbps down, and 12mbps up, and I don't have any issues.

    Hello dovetail team, live tournaments still crashes when you go into them losing a total of 6 mins every time. Plus when it does work you lose a minute just loading in. Time shouldn't start until first cast. Float fishing is broken, get a perfect strike lose fish but poor strike catch fish. This is so frustrating.

    I agree about the float fishing..i bought the game mostly for the float fishing but any line under 10lb just snaps and the striking seems random to me..and that float icon above the float makes it look a bit arcadey to me, looses all realism..just make the tip of the float a brighter red and have an option to remove the icon if you want...fishsim 2 did it over a decade ago and you could see all the bites.
    Hope it's something the makers will think about.

    Well I thought the DTG guys where responsive but guess I was wrong. Since I've post about getting kicked outta tournament and being docked time, several others have posted this problem as well to no response, nothing. I'll continue to wait as the game just sits here getting no play.

    I've had no issues with float fishing, i think they should be more flots/setups for float fishing. Maybe introduced a option to take away the float bubble and have just the float itself

    I totally agree with you Jay on the float bubble, doesn't look like they are going to change it as, I've mentioned it before and they say we won't be able to see the bite (why? just make the float tip a red colour lol)...the other thing with the float fishing is you fish at the same depth all the time, again not realistic....really not having a go at the makers because it's by far the best fishing sim out there, but its the little details like the float bubble and depth settings that will make it even better, it will make the float fishing less like an arcade part and make it realistic like the carp side of the game where the bubble is needed.

    Yeah maybe they could put in a option like they have with casting. Making you have a choice on what you want to see ingame. Almost like customisable gameplay so you see what you want to see. But that may be in the pipe like as they say they haven't finished it yet so i think it can only get better. As for the depth i think that's definitely something they need to change, i kinda know where they was going with the float side there idea seems to be for stalking in the margins ect.. Don't think they thought much on fishing deeper water. Would be good to be able to get some of the bigger carp on float too. I've only managed to land a 14lb still a decent weight but nothing compared to what weight fish are stocked within the lakes. Overall a fantastic game though the amount of times I've been late for work due to " just one more cast/fish"

    Hi, first off, great game!

    There are several issues that have prevented me from playing for a while;

    1. Line snapping or fish escaping for no apparent reason. I know about the tension controls I keep an eye on it continuously, this is particularly an issue on l'arene.

    2. Putting down the rod often makes the line ping like elastic either far into the distance, behind me or to a different location completely.

    3. Number/bed type bubbles disappear completely or appear very far away.

    Several other minor issues but these are the most frequent and unworkable.

    I agree completely about the line snapping, none of the smaller breaking strength lines are any good at all and seem to snap far too easily, causing me to use 25lb line to float fish. Even then at some venues the 25lb line snaps (or is it the hook that pulls out?)

    Thanks for the response James, also will there be a graphic update on rods, lines, float tips, etc. I was also wondering if anyone here could give some tips on best tacklebox load out for each location, point me in direction of thread if this already exists, thank you in advance.

    Hey Crabtree, it's hard to tell what happens, fish just gets away. I even have tension at 100 when there is no pull to try and counteract to no avail and vice versa.

    I was under the impression that underwater snags are the cause of the line suddenly hitting max tension. If you pay attention it happens at the same place, and depth over and over. If you immediately drop the tip of your pole towards the hook icon, and run your drag down, 9 times out of 10 your line wont snap.Youve just got to be ready when the fish starts getting close to the snag.

    I have noticed now that when playing multiplayer online, when a host leaves and the game tries to go to continue with another host, I get thrown back to the xbox dashboard
