Quick fishing question

Recommended Posts

Bakkerbaard

Am I right in assuming that some fish, like the lake sturgeon in this instance, just can't be arsed for a nibble at night?

I found fishing at night pretty much sucks in general.

True. But somehow I manage to stay out days on end and only come off slightly peckish.

 

I love immersion.

I had no problems at Owanjila Dam at night.

However.. I did the daily challenge to catch 5 fish with a lure and had to leave 4 three star muskies on the shore because I couldn't break them down. 

Despite having a knife, machete, cleaver and hatchet on me. 

 

I love realism.

Almost as much as I love sarcasm.

Yeah, it would be better if we could filet the fish, though I basically only fish for the dailies myself. I pull up the hunting wagon and fill it up, make a mint while I'm at it.

Damn thing's gotta stink up the stables by now.

Thing is, you can break down/filet the small and medium fish in your satchel. But a large fish never goes into your satchel.

 

I fished as the primary means to level up my health. To that end, going for medium-sized fish was the best option because hooking a large fish gave you the same amount of health XP but took much, much longer to land each time.

You can break down large fish. I believe the option is only available when they are stowed in your horse cargo.

There is not a button prompt, I checked recently when my dailies were to cook a type of fish.  I know in SP it gave you the option to cook it when holding it near a campfire, but I haven't been able to do that.  Might have been on a mission or something though.

Just checked, you're right. The option is gone. I can only assume the feature was removed with the summer update.

In online you could never break down big fish.

I used to purposely go after pike for the flaky fish daily challenge. That'd be kinda hard to do if you could never break down large fish. It was changed.

People had this same discussion 6 months ago. You couldn't break large fish down then, and you can't do it now. 

 

There was a fishing thread somewhere, probably got buried under these incredible "topics" getting started so often lately.

Breaking down large fish has never been an option, maybe you were breaking down a smaller fish and thought it was a pike.  Maybe pickerel.

I know what a pike is. Fishing is literally all I did before Frontier Pursuits, and I didn't learn what fish species are from Red Dead. 

 

I used to fish for pike so often at one of my spots that I broke them down as a main source of food. Fun survival aspect I gave myself early on in RDO. I'd bring extra pike to people in Valentine to sell at the butcher.

 

I don't know when it was changed, it's been quite a while since I did it on a regular basis, but it was essentially a core aspect of my particular playstyle.

 

I remember clearly, multiple complaints of pike/large fish only breaking down to one fillet of fish. These complaints wouldn't be possible if it wasn't a game mechanic in the first place.

Dynamite works well for fishing.

It definitely was. I remember being able to do this.

I'm sure I've never had the option to break down large fish online. Looked for it a few times because I'd rather have something than just leave the 2nd fish in the mud but it's never been there, even when people told me it was in the horse cargo section there was no option to break down a large fish.

^ from release day until this very moment, never could I break down a pike, muskie, longnose gar, catfish or whatever other bigh fish. And trust me I've tried. Not trough cargo, not on foot nor near a fireplace...

 

Maybe someone can point out how it was done then if this is/was possible ?

 

Are you on Xbox one @einjzmolf ?

Same here. Been playing since launch and have never been able to break down the large fish. It may be a console thing though because I am on xbox and I remember a while back I saw some PS4 users saying the option to break down the fish was there but was bugged. So idk.

I am a PS4 user, the option is indeed there once the fish is stored on your horse, it simply does nothing though. What I know is that FP update didn't change a thing in that regard, patch notes don't mention anything either. It would be nonsense to remove such an option if it had been there. Even by R* logic standards

Just like in real life, the best time to fish is in the early morning preferably when it's raining

Early mornings and rain are just two of the reasons I don't go outside, so that information is new to me.

I will take it to heart, playing at night.
