    This happened to me tonight in the pond tournament. I can catch a lot of fish at this location in 7 minutes. It certainly effected my score.
    -edit
    It happened again in the same tournament. I lost around 11 minutes. I could have made 20pts in that amount of time. I guess I can kiss 2nd place goodbye.

    So I've noticed when fishing in the weeds only in the weeds my line seems to drift until it's on silt.

    *Edit
    It seems to only be on Digger Lake i have tested the observatory and L'arene and it does not happen there witch leads me to belive that it is a bug. I do however like an idea of the bait and rig flowing with the current expecialy with a float setup. i have a video of it not sure how to share it so you can see exactly what i am talking about.

    I've found that some lakes have got one or teo snags, same places as you say. I find dropping the drag down slightly and lowering the rod so it's pointing towards the fish helps a lot

    Hi James/Dev team,

    Not sure if it's a bug but I am pretty much losing every fish on St Johns, fight for few minutes then suddenly tension bar is all red and fish is off the hook. I have tried everything from reducing tension to 2 from 18, letting go of LT completely, pointing rod at icon, raising/pulling rod, adding tension and combinations of all of these. I am about ready to give up but I feel there is something I'm missing or it is a bug. My setup is correct for location and fish type (verified) so I don't get it.

    Please respond and give me your best insight, I love this game and don't want this issue to end it for me.

    Best regards,
    Michael

    Hiya Michael, I'm assuming you are using a big enough hook (4 or 8) and your line is (20lb or 25lb)?
    I know when i first started I was fishing at St Johns with lighter tackle and getting smashed almost every cast.
    I usually set the tension to about 2 when i place the rod in the rest. Once I have struck and the fish is hooked I move the tension to around 34 for bigger fish and when the bar starts to go into red, I reduce the tension to 18, then back up again once out of the red. Sometimes just holding the rod and not reeling for a second and let the fish move away a bit will work
    No need to point the rod at the fish, i think that would make the line go slack and that can lose a fish.

    Thanks Crabtree, will try that next time I'm on. I tend to have my tension at 18 constantly unless I need to reduce it maybe that's where I'm going wrong plus my line isn't that tough, I didn't need it before and was catching the monsters, just got lucky I suppose.

    Many thanks to all of you, this forum has proven very helpful and full of friendly people. I wish all forums were as such. I appreciate the advise and time you have all given me. Much respect to the dev team also for such an awesome game initially and for your response and support when and where it's needed. I may have given up on this game had it not been for these forums.

    Hi Michael

    We are aware that some fish are coming off the line very quickly when they shouldn't be and are looking into it seeing what we can do.

    I've had some odd occurrences.......being done by fish, then the line kiting of to a distance of 220 yards, I've also seen a number of carp and cats make it into the carp park in St. Johns haha! I've had baits cast out then disappear and all sorts. Apart from that it's a great wee game

    Hello DTG James H , it's been several times when I fish out a tournament, it does not count. Example: on the tournament from July 20 to Digger Lakes, my last 2 taken on the session 3 have not been accounted for. Thank you to do something because it lost points for the general classification. Thank you very much and desolated for my bad English

    I have had the same thing happen a couple of different time now also. On the last catfish tournament on the Spain lake, had 2 fish that didn't count which could have lead to more leaderboard points.(maybe) But they are aware of this issue, cause I have talked about it before. I hope it get fixed in the up coming patch. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!!

    Hi guys

    We are aware of the issues with the tournaments and how sometimes it doesn't record the amount of fish you caught. You will be happy to know that this has been taken on board as a bug, and once the dev team can they will actively work on a fix for it.

    Hey dev\james
    Im very disappointed in the digger lake tournament i was doing great the first 2 sessions but after that all i caught was mainly mirror carp and 3 common carp plus had a error and lost 3 mins and my line kept breaking for no reason and the fish kept going on the banks or under where i was standing. I dont see you how i caught more mieror carp than common because i know there was more common in that lake because when i did it on freedom fishing i caught alot of common carp then it went eemed like it took over 15 mins for the fish to regenerate. But please look into because im very disappointed.

    In a tournament, why do I only get credit for half the weight of a caught fish? Only catfish I've gotten (in my 3rd attempt) was 18.4 lbs. I got credit on the leader board for only 8lbs.

    This also happened during last weekend's as well, in Spain. Caught a 70lb fish but only credited for 40ish. That as well was the only fish I caught.

    I stop playing tournaments where spending my time is wasted.

    Thank you, christine. So are the fish's weight just random at this time?

    Kind of surprising this wasn't fixed ASAP

    Your welcome. As far as ive seen u get half the points for the weight example: u catch a 20 lb fish u get 10 points. But sometimes it doesnt give u that like your supposed to but hopefully the update will fix it. When it ever happens.

    Hi, I just caught Cheetah (100lbs catfish) and didn't unlock the achievement. The achievement tracker says I'm at 88% (for catching Leo a couple of weeks ago). The Anglers log says I've caught Cheetah @ 100lbs, any ideas? Thanks

    Hi Guys, all weights in the tournaments are in metric (kgs) so that the leaderboards are accurate and showing everyone's weights using the same measurement. So, if you have your game settings to lbs and catch a 20lb fish, the game will record that and convert it into kgs for the leaderboard

    I hate to beethe first to say about a problem with the new update but im trying to play multiplayer and its stuck at where u pick ur teleport location. And when fishing on multiplayer u will go to cast and it will just freeze then a few seconds later it will cast it out. I do not like the update and im about ready to get my refund like the other person did. I think the update made the game worse.

    First of all, I was in the "Not playing till it's patched" camp as it was really infuriating to play and I didn't want the release build to ruin my opinion of the game too much. The patch has really improved the gameplay and is definitely a lot less buggy which is great news and in my opinion the game is now playable.

    Had a good session last night on St John's and also The Observatory but did come across a few bugs still that the development team might want to know about.

    1) I was fishing in spot 2 (https://dtgfishing.com/the-observatory-lake/) to the right side and kept getting bites with ease, but each time, without me really doing much at all and despite the drag being set to 2, the line tension would rocket up. The majority of the time I would lose the fish there and then, if I didn't then as soon as I did anything with the rod or began to reel, I would lose the fish. Happened countless times.

    2) A few times (but nowhere near as much as before the patch) on both The Observatory and also St Johns I had fish swim into and through the banks causing me to lose the fish. (I took a recording of one of the times this happened if you need proof or any more info)

    3) Only the once this happened, I lost a fish and my character started looking straight down, almost to his feet, I assume as that's where the hook went, but I was unable to "reset cast" with RB and had to physically reel the line in.

    They were the only bugs that I came across last night and all in all I was impressed with the patch.

    I do have a couple of suggestions to make the game a little more realistic....

    1) can we not just have everything we unlock in the tackle box? I don't really see the point in having 4 bait/hook options per tackle box. If I go fishing, I load the car up with as much stuff as I can take and the majority of it get's used, it just seems a bit silly restricting these things when you wouldn't do that in real life.

    2) When playing online with friends, it would be great if we didn't have a limit on how far we can walk from our peg, in turn, this would allow us to walk around to our friends peg (as we would in real life) and maybe help them in netting a fish or maybe playing a 2nd or 3rd fish they might have on at the same time as the one they are playing.

    3) I notice on the PC version, players are able to try and net a fish before the blue tired symbol pops up, why can't we do that on Xbox? Would make playing 2/3 fish at the same time a little easier, quicker and more realistic as in real life I'll do everything I can to get that sucker in the net as quickly as possible, especially if another alarm if firing off!

    1kg is 2.205lbs so you wont quite get half the weight if ur old (ish) like me n playing in pounds . . . hence the random points/weight. . . .

    Hi!

    Firstly thank you for taking the time to write your post and thank you for your suggestions. To try and answer some of the points that you make;

    - We are aware of the annoying bugs that mean the tension will suddenly shoot up and fish can also swim onto the bank at times. We are working on a fix and look out for an announcement regarding this later on today.
    - We understand that people want more options in their tackle box and this is something that we will be addressing in our next update.
    - Understand what you are saying about multiplayer but still want to emphasise the importance of not leaving your rods unattended.
    - The PC version had the old netting experience where you had to try to net the fish yourself but we were not happy with the mechanics of this system so we have updated it with the auto netting that you now find in Xbox One. The PC update was slightly bigger than the Xbox One update as it wasn't running on the same build as the Xbox One release. Both builds are now identical and will have identical updates going forward.

    Thanks!

    Yes, the bosh screen image is a bug and will be corrected in the next update. Smurfy is definitely a ghost carp!

    Sounds like you have it all under control then! Great stuff.

    I love it when game developers actually listen and converse with the forums about bugs, glitches and updates. I'm a huge fan of The Golf Club and the developers have exactly the same ethos as Dovetail on communication with the gamers. Long may it continue! Well done guys.
