Fish types at diff. depths and the jigging trick
# Sep 21 2010 at 7:52 AM Rating: Decent
Hi Wint, really appreciate you guide here. The interpretation of the clues received during fishing is really detailed. Just like to add a few more several observations made during my beta fishing career:

a) Often different types of fish are available at different depths. The oysters and crayfishes can be found nearer the bottom which make sense. For tutorial quests tho', they make the target around mid-deptyh so it's easier for beginners. If no fish bites after a couple of takes try changing depth.

b) I always wait after a nibble but always jig after a bite. Out of maybe once in 12-15 takes the fish nibble twice and get away, but the rest of the time they always bite after they nibble.

c) Finding the right angle to jig is an intelligent guess. If the guess is right the rod shines and gives a "twin" sound. If I guess 30 degrees the first time and it was not right I try 280 degrees and so on to narrow the field.

d) the sweet spot can be anywhere. Somtimes it's in the middle. The jig-o-meter is a pendulum with a slight delay in response. Once I get into the rhythm it's easy. Say if I want it to stop at NW, I must hit the button when the swing is in the west, and if north is your target you need to fire when the swing gets to NW.

May the Puller's Goddess bless all of you with great catch. I hope I can catch sharks soon. :D
Awesome Guide

It is a very good guide to get you started. I want to help you out and make a excel or Google spreed sheet and get so concrete numbers. Maybe we can get enough data from people to make an advanced guide with solid data. I will defiantly help obtain that data. If your interested give me a PM or post here and we can get together and work on it in open beta. Also are you gonna be a cook also ?
great guide

fantastic work

helped me figure out what to do. as was said it is a game of hot and cold. once you find the sweet spot you have to keep hitting it

I catch almost every time now :)

will be fishing on my main when the CE comes!

Hey Wint, hate to burst a bubble, but I would say the majority of my bites were at the extreme ends of the cast, jigging without waiting.

Basically, I'd say 60%+ of my hooks were dropping to depth, then hitting the extreme edges of the cast bar by immediately jigging. Reeling them in became more the issue as sometimes I had to reel all the way to the other half of the cast bar.
