    completly ruined the game.
    1. fish snapping off split second after alarm sounds
    2.while playing a fish it flirts about the screen.
    3.you have to lower your tension a lot lower,down to 23 with 25 lb line for a 0.92 roach which just took a 20mm tiger nut so twice as long to land fish.
    4.cast my line up against the reeds 8yds out, within 15 secs its floated out in front of me, none of my baits stay where they should cast in front of me drifts towards me static winds clear sky.
    was happy about new lake but dont think i will be purchasing it. VERY DSAPPOINTING.

    wouldn't need a third of that lol, they should update the shop more baits,rods etc. venues for maybe beach casting, i know they have problems but they seem to make things worse instead of better:(

    The 'new' update has put me off the game now big time,the ps4 version launched with the bug of tiny fish on 4hooks & 20mm baits aswell as big boss cats being caught on waggler & maggot!!! First cast yesterday after update and a rip roaring take off a 20mm tiger landing me a half pound roach :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: this bug alone ruins it for me.Who on earth does the testing of these updates because I've even read somewhere in the ps4 section a dev mention about rigs&baits not being right and now it pops up in our 'new' update....Hmmmmm funny that!:mad:

    i entered this weekends tournament on st johns lake in one hour using 15mm boilies i caught 1 mirror carp 2 common carp 6 roach and a bream 4 snapped off before i could even pick a the rod up.the tension is up and down like crazy you have to drop it now to 25 to 30 yu cannot keep it constant, i underarm cast right up against the bank 3 different places they all drifted out and ended up in the same place behind each other. takes forever now to land the fish because of the tension problem. this needs to be sorted its pathetic.

    When the line snaps off do you get a run on the line or does it stay where it was initially?
    It is intended that you have to change your clutch value while playing a fish but this seems a bit extreme for such small fish so we will look into it.
    Which lake were you playing on when your bait was drifting from the position it was cast to?
    Do you have screenshots of this error message.

    I'm sorry I was unable to respond sooner, we have had a very busy last two weeks.

    If the line is staying where it is and you are not getting any time to respond to the bite alarm it could be that you are getting false bites. Where a fish will nibble on the bait and trigger the bite alarm but not actually take the bait and start fighting.

    xbox live clips
    on my xbox live i have a clip from st johns with the drifting bait also how long the alarm sounds before it snaps, in the same clip but it does go off again few seconds later,(which doesn't happen very often ) at least you can see how quick the line snaps ,happens quite often.
