Perfect Time

Fish activity usually depends on the weather and time of the day. Study the Weather Forecast and bite charts, and learn to use the Fast-Forward Time function to ensure the best possible fishing conditions. The higher the curve chart, the more active fish will be at that time.

Catch Redear

Different lures attract fish in different ways. Try using Crickets to catch a Redear Sunfish - it has a particular taste for insect baits. These fish go out to feed closer to shore, near the lily pads. You will need a Keepnet to keep your catch and sell it at the end of the day.

New Lure, New Possibilities

Try experimenting with different lures, explore various areas of the waterway and you’ll see your Keepnet fill up with heavy fish in no time! To cover the travel and stay costs, you need to catch a lot of fish and sell it at the end of the day, before leaving the waterway.

Catfish

Mudwater River is known for its wide range of fish species. Catfish are large bottom-dwelling creatures that have a taste for smelly baits. Use a bigger hook with Petfood as bait, and head over to the Catfish Heaven location. There, in an underwater hole near the shore, you’ll find these whiskery monsters. But you’ll have to increase the leader length to get them.

Tough Setup

Going after bigger fish requires sturdier tackle. You can get some new powerful fishing tools in Mudwater’s local shop, without leaving the waterway. But keep in mind, that the tackle selection in local shops is always limited, and prices are a bit higher than in the Global Map’s game store.

Update Your Gear

Before travelling to a new fishing destination, you should get all the necessary tackle and equipment. Your spinning rod is still great, but the reel is definitely worth upgrading.

Emerald Lake is heartwarming and always welcomes the weary traveller. Head over there for a few days to explore this waterway’s marvelous possibilities.

Catch the Pike

Pike are a promising catch in any weather, but the trick is to choose the right time. Since Pike like to ambush their prey, it’s a good idea to cast your tackle near to the reed thickets by the shore, perform a Straight retrieve and get ready for a powerful strike!

Pike Lures

Silicone Shads aren’t the only lures to attract Pike. These predators eagerly bite on a variety of regular Spoons as well. Try experimenting with different lures. And don’t forget about the Shad you received as a reward - using a different color can land you a different kind of fish!

Kayaking

Time to try navigating on the water! Go ahead, rent a kayak to explore the calm deep waters of Emerald Lake and see it’s marvelous aquatic world from an entirely different perspective. Traveling in a kayak will take up you energy, and the faster you go the more tired you will become. Try to use your energy wisely for a better navigation experience.

Kayak Fishing

Fishing from the shore is only a part of the much bigger fishing experience! Try to catch fish directly from your kayak. Make sure to anchor, to avoid being dragged by a large fish onto a sunken log or boulder. Keep in mind that boat fishing requires having an Advanced License.

Fish Places

Pay attention, and when you see fish jumping out of the water as they hunt, you’ll know that’s a great fishing spot. Another way of finding a good spot is to watch for bubbles and disturbances on the water surface coming from bottom-dwelling fish as they move around in the depth below. Follow the hints and try finding such spots by noticing fish activity. Turn this into a habit, and you’ll always end up with a fantastic catch!

Sauger Catcher

Use the narrow spoon and try catching a Sauger. These fish like to stay close to the edge of underwater holes and will eagerly bite lure on the fall or a Lift&Drop retrieve. This retrieve imitates behaviour of small fish that usually search for food close to the bottom and are an easy target for predators.

Night Fishing

Walleye are nocturnal predators, so it’s best to use the special glow-in-the-dark night fishing tackle that you can get from the shop. Equip the night fishing silicone Shad and catch a few Walleye. Look for these fish in deep holes and nearby. Don’t forget that night fishing requires an Advanced License!

Idyllic nature of Rocky Lake’s pristine wilderness along with perfect weather conditions and plenty of Trout to catch make this a top fishing destination for many anglers. Trout are predatory fish that like to wait for their prey near rocky shores and large boulders. Try landing a few of these fish using Spinners, some of the best lures for Trout fishing. Effectively adjusting the reel Drag is an important element for effective results, as it helps regulate the load on your tackle.
