Timing is everything



So I've had an opportunity to actually test this and it does seem to work. Certain fish only bite at certain times. I've just about got my illustrated book filled and a lot of the hard to find fish, I was able to get at times recommended by friends. As with CHANGEvil, nothing ever seems to stay the same for too long, but if the posts stay current, so should the timing (fingers crossed).

I am trying to get times rare fish are biting without chum, or at most, 1 S chum. I have caught my missing fish without chum, but if it helps with one, I'm ask for it.

Some of the hardest fish to find:

Isurus. 2 PST crank, 6 PST crank ss chum 5.55 PST minnow 2 s chum 8.30 PST crank 2 ss chum

Sturgeon.  8 PST spinner 2o'clock cast 5.45 PST spinner

Tapon. 11 PST crank s chum 1 PST crank

Atlantic wolffish. 9, 11 PST minnow 7.30 PST crank and minnow 3.30 PST minnow 1 PST minnow

Golden ribbon sea bass.  5.30 PST spinner 11o'clock cast sss chum

Blue dot ribbon Ray

Zebra shark

Laced moray.  9.30 PST minnow max right max cast and minimum cast

Killer whale. 5 PST crank and sss chum 11o'clock cast

Opah

Swordfish

Giant Barb. 2-4, 8 PST spinner ss chum 10 PST crank ss chum

Bull shark. 7 PST minnow minimum cast 6.50 PST crank and sss chum, 9 PST crank no chum 12 PST minnow ss chum 3 PST spinner min cast

African snakehead. 4 PST minnow cast at any ripple

Goonch catfish   12 PST minnow 3.45 PST minnow

White sturgeon 3.15 PST crank

Pink dolphin. 10 PST minnow no chum

Chinese paddlefish.  2-4 and 5-7 PST minimum cast with minnow,  10 PST minnow 4.30 PST minnow

Coelacanth 1.44 PST minnow ss chum 1.30 PST crank

Thresher Shark 6.30 PST crank ss chum min cast 10 PST 
minnow ss chum 1.30 PST minnow

Blanket Octopus 6.54 PST crank sss chum 8.45 PST spinner 5.24 PST spinner s chum 1.30 PST spinner

Please post the time you hooked the fish (it isn't important whether you landed it or not), along with your time zone. The bait, chum type if any, cast location, etc. I hope we can all start finding some similarities and start filling in some shadows in our iBook 8)

Happy fishing!!!

  1. I've been discussing amongst friends the difficulty in finding monster fish right after getting all other fish in a site. A little background for newer players: once you caught all fish in a certain site, you used to hook the monster fish (ie. Big black snakehead, thunderbolt moray eel, etc) within a few casts. It seems this may have changed. This is why I did not include monster fish in this initial list of difficult fish to find. Please post times, time zones, baits, and chums for any of these you had to search for. If you clear a site, and hook the monster within a few casts, don't worry about posting. Just the ones that do not fit the norm. Thanks for your help 8)

  20. I caught wts before last big update! Some think GV changed the way monsters are caught! Try this every hour or so. Max cast crank bait from 11 to 1 o clock. S-chunk doesn't hurt to use! Also go to sweet spots and baits thread. Thats where I got my info for rare and monster fish! When you catch please post time, bait, strength of cast, as much info as you can.

    1. If you've already caught all the fish at the site, then it should bite quickly.I cast 5 rods after catching all the other fish and 3 of them were fire horn. If you don't get a bite, uninstall and reinstall the game. Make sure you remember your ign and password. This should bring them in right away.
