Fishing Challenges live?

Recommended Posts

hotrats773

New live event called Fishing Challenge? Just had this pop up and took part. What a nice change of pace from the usual "kill every orange dot you see" crap! This took part in the swamp and I got two giant catfish right away which helped me win.

 

Hoping for more like this!

Looking forward to this.

 

Was it based on total weight?

Yes. I lucked out and spawned near two channel cats so that put me up pretty big right away. After the cats,  no more spawned so I really needed to hustle and use the spinner to keep ahead.

 

Not sure if they provide lures and a rod (can't imagine they wouldn't).

Wanted to try it but i have no bait yet so i had to skip it. (funny how the fishing rod is unlocked at rank 20 but baits sits at rank 30)

 

Was the pay good?

$53 and 330xp but this was my first play through and I came in first. I'm sure we'll see those numbers dive lol.

 

Edit. Maybe someone else who is under rank 20 and tried it can confirm if level locks apply? Seems doofy if that stuff is.

Idiots join the event just to troll people. I had one moron follow me, splashing in the water where my lure was so as to scare off the fish. Griefers gonna grief I guess.

They need to find a way to get these on more often, and somehow let us get the ones we want more. I nearly always get that horrible dispatch rider one.

 

Maybe let us vote on whatever's coming up next?

Yeah for me anything free roam is fair game (to a degree), but those events are for a specific purpose and that someone would join for the explicit purpose of messing with others is pretty lame.

Rockstar logic: "we add thing that you can't play". We need an option to play this f*cking event or any event without wait 2 years untill the bloody thing pop up.

the "invited" to free roam event implies someone started it and invited people to it, but it seems to be a random system. I hope Rockstar allow us to start instances of free roam events whenever we choose, because competitive fishing sounds like my kind of pace.

i got a invitation to a fishing challenge near the swamps, the biggest fish i caught was a 5 lb bass, and other fish was 1 lb (i forget what fish it was).

but i did get about 11 or 12 gold nuggets.

Welp, sorry folks, guess I bombed that one. I guess splashing is the new griefing, they'll always find a way.

Sh*t like this makes me wonder why I even bother with multiplayer games anymore. Some people have always got to find a way to screw things up.

 

 

At least with splitscreen or LAN games you could give Tommy Toxic a slap when he decided to be a dick

This mode is very heroic. You also get to keep any fish you got that fit in your satchel - so it's pretty good money. I got 10 of those salmon, so an extra 25 on top of the reward for winning the mode. Only had one other person, but still ended up a good pay.

I had the opportunity to try this last night.  It was actually very fun.  The only issue I had was I believe there were too many players participating for the small event area.  Everyone was literally on top of each other trying to fish.  

 

I would recommend either halving the participants, or making the event area larger.  I would also like to see specific species of fish targeted, not just total poundage.  They're called bass tournaments for a reason.  If target fish is salmon, any other fish wouldn't count.  Just rambling off ideas.

just wondering, why is the fishing in USA so bass focussed?

They way I pictured this when it was announced was that the game would kick off and we would all high-tail it to our closest favorite fishing hole.

It probably seems that way with the televised bass competitions etc. but it's more about where you're located. Down south bass, out west trout & salmon. Of course these can cross over in certain areas. I grew up near the Chesapeake Bay so 99% of my fishing was salt water but I have caught 2 smallmouths IRL.
