    Can anyone share any information on how they completed this? I’ve attempted it many times and can’t seem to catch more than two or three fish each time. Mostly brown trout too, not pike. Each time I probably get one or two brown trout 18-20 inches and one pike around 20 inches.

    I have tried as many baits as I can with different retrieves. Swimbaits with fast and slow retrieve. Top water pencil baits with fast and slow and twitch. Poppers, buzzbaits, crankbaits, plastics. All with different retrieves. Nothing seems to get more than 2 bites.

    What’s going on here? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks y’all.

    hi, try fishing in the margins with a perch swimbait but when you catch one move because their solitary fish I found it worked for me. tight lines

    Tried fishing shallow with the perch swimbait. I moved around the pond each time. I tried traveling with the map across the pond and walking around. I attempted the challenge four times. Tried different retrieves. I managed to get one pike on three of the four times; and, one brown or rainbow each time. Capped out between 30 and 45 total inches each of the four times. I’m not quite sure what’s going on here but it seems unbeatable. AI is reeling in 30-40 inch pike while I sometimes manage to reel In just one at 20 inches.

    Had anyone else had this issue?

    Yeah i am having this issue in the career mode pro tour on bergsee it is night with heavy rain i max out at 50in while the ai can catch over 100in in the twenty mins i too have tried dead bait and lures but only catch 2 or 3 pike if i'm lucky.

    EDIT - i managed to do it used smelt heads and the black buzzbait in the margins caught 236in over the two rounds the black buzz in the margins caught me a few 30+in pike for some reason dark lures work better at night something to do with casting a sillouette against the moonlight or ambeient light who knew seems counter intuitive using dark lures at night but it worked for me

    For anyone still having trouble with this frailkrazykev is right about the dark lures . And size 2 hooks with smelt or roach let them sit and spin with your third rod .. i caught a lot of northen pike 20 inch plus spinning with a fork flutter spoon also 20lb sunline sniper line.. hope this helps .. have fun
