    I was just doing a carp tournament when I hooked into a catfish. This got me thinking about whether people carry on with the catch or cut the line and try again for the target species.

    What would you do in this situation? I carried on and caught the cat (justins fish by the way) but I'm not that competitive.

    Quick release as soon as you seen it’s not an eligible fish that counts for tournament. Could lose the tournament especially if it’s a Wels on the line because they take time to come in

    Thank you both. I have always played as if it was true to life so I have always done as I would if real fishing. It always feels cruel even though I know it's just a game. Strange I know.

    No problem. I know it’s hard to let another big fish go that isn’t the right species but what’s good about this game is remember where you had that fish and go back. Chances are you might catch this fish again not in a tournament. Try a fishing trip so you can start hammering out these boss fish.

    I am slowly breaking my bad habits. I played euro fishing for so long and have been playing this version for about 3 months and only just started the tournament's. I'm trying to change my way of thinking and remembering what I'm trying to do.

    If you cut the cut the lines (most with pike duering bass tourney) they keep coming back!
    If i hook a big catfish, i go to map and teleport to other spot!
