    Yesterday i got one with cr1 bottom baits. But i was fishing like 2 hours and only got one, so i guess there is better baits for it

    Do you remember how deep down she was? I'm thinking 14-15ft deep. I've caught some big Arapaima at that depth but, no Mekongs yet.

    No i don't remember. I tried today about couple hours, but no mekongs. I tried almost every bait, and different depths and locations but got only pacus and big siamese carps

    Mekongs stopped bitting on deadbaits after update . So did mastery catches and background changes . This happens all the time they have to update to fix there updates .

    Its all RNG at the end of the day, and if it rolls in your favour great, if it doesn't then pack up and go home.

    100% Agree! This game it seems to be just being in the general area. I've caught all my Boss' on multiple setups, Deads, floats & lures. If something ain't working, try a different setup. You'll be surprised what will catch what in this game. It's a lot like real fishing in that sense, experimenting is key. Then you find something that maybe shouldn't work but, does. Still, sometimes you get the fish, then other times the fish get you.

    I feel you! I agree as well. Still ain't catch no Kongs yet, I got 100k so tackle is not a problem. My rig catches plenty of catfish just no Kongs ...that's whats so fun about the game to catching the elusive fish.

    Yeah I switched to day time .....I've only fished Pearl so far. I've watched my sons fish other locations but, for some reason I just like Pearl.

    Still no Kongs!!!!

    Most of mine i've caught around the west top peg, first peg you spawn to about 25 yds straight in front of me forget how deep it is you will get a ton of bigheads, juliens and siamese but stick with it and you should get a few mekongs

    Well Deserved bud! I'm feeling the pain of grinding them Boss' .
    I won't be able to complete it unless I pick up the Besti map, which I'm in an indefinite hold pattern on for now.
    I'm sure out of sheer boredom I'll have to give in. But, just can't bring myself to pull the trigger yet. I have Too much resentment built up against our buddies at Dovetail.

    Caught a couple of specimen mekong catfish at top right spot on map using the source boillie in conjunction with the source wafter, had to get passed a load of annoying red pacu though

    Also noticed that bloodied eel catfish pellet seems to land them along wit wide range other species seems a good all round bait for pearl lake

    Since I originally made this post, I've been catching the Kongs off CR1 Bottom Baits ....still have not caught any RARE or BOSS Kongs yet.
    Will try the bloodied eel catfish pellet
