Fishing

Heya, guys!

 

Been attempting to do a little fishing lately and having a bit of trouble with it. Will be fishing, catch about 3 fish and be fine. Go to catch fish #4, be reeling them in, and suddenly the bar suddenly drops all the way to the left and I've lost my bait. Doesn't matter if the spacebar is pressed to reel in the fish or not, just boom! gone. 

Any fish afterwards, same thing.  But then I stop fishing after about 3 in a row of this and go back to farming. 

 

First noticed it with the Salmon and the Eel, figured you'd made it harder to catch them due to the Achevements. But then it did it with a Perch on Monday evening on the Thinkpad, and just a few minutes ago with a Herring and a Halibut on the MacBook.

 

Anyone else having the same problem? Not seeing anything on the board. 

 

Please and Thanks!

Hi! I know I have similar

Hi! I know I have similar issues when I sometimes fish, but found if I switch to Single Player Mode this problem happens a lot less. I know when I'm in multiplayer mode, the bar jumps back and forth. In Singleplayer it goes as it's supposed to, because there's not so many people bogging down my fish feed, if that makes sense?

I usually fish in Single Player mode, because my Whispering Death likes the ocean fish more than the fresh water ones, and getting blasted at while fishing sucks. And generally results in lost bait. >P 

 

-Forgot to mention I've got the Advanced Rod.

Whispering Death

I'm starting to notice an alarming number of people saying they get shot at when they have a Whispering Death. I've walked out of entire areas because of it.

As for while I'm fishing, I generally just ignore it. I agree that the fishing feed does tend to be bogged down because of it though.
