TOLDEDO BEND JOINS THE PUBLIC SERVERS TODAY!
Hey there Anglers. To kick things off, Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you enjoy yourselves, eat lots of awesome food, and spend time with your loved ones. Today we will be adding Toledo Bend to Bassmaster Online, where you’ll be able to hop into a server solo or with your friends to track down and land some basszillas! Lake Hamilton isn’t going anywhere though, and you’ll see when you head to the server list you can pick which of the two venues you’d like to fish. We’ll be adding it to Bassmaster Royale at a later date. A Trip Down Toledo Bend Toledo Bend is a reservoir on the Sabine River straddling Texas and Louisiana, Toledo Bend is the largest man-made body of water in Southern USA. Bassmaster® Fishing 2022’s section of Toledo Bend will be mostly in the Louisiana portion. The starting dock is next to the famous Cypress Bend Park, from which you'll be able to see the stunning scenery that emulate real-life points of interest across the park. As you explore the rest of Toledo Bend, you'll uncover boat houses around the bank sides and foliage that is accurate to the area. Shorelines will be covered in tall Pines, Oak trees and more, and under the water, the foliage is just as diverse as the shoreline. Your Favourite Venue We would love to know which of the 8 real-world venues in Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is your favourite to fish on. We have set up a poll on our official forums where you can cast your vote on your favourite venue and you can have your say here [http://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/vote-on-favourite-venue.49129/]. Share Your Catch We love seeing your catches (shout out to Knightowl on Discord for this one from Lake Hamilton) and we’d love to see even more as Toledo Bend is now available on the online public servers! To help make this easier, did you know that by logging into Dovetail Live when you open the game you can take snapshots of your catches and they automatically upload to your profile on Dovetail Live? This means that when you log in, you can see the image saved and share it wherever you’d like! But it doesn’t end there, Logs provides you with detailed information about your catches, where you caught them and the gear you used. This information could be super useful for remembering where those hot spots are if you didn’t put down a Waypoint! The team here at Dovetail Games are still working tirelessly on Bassmaster Fishing 2022, update 3 is in progress and there is a whole host of new content coming a little down the line.

BASS BULLETIN - NOV.04.2021
Hello anglers, We hope you’re enjoying your first taste of Bassmaster® Fishing 2022, and have been catching all-manner of g-g-g-giant bass in your time on the water! We’ve been fascinated to watch you all find your hotspots, share screenshots of your catches, and support other players in getting onto the water. We also appreciate all the feedback you’ve been sending us so far. In this Bass Bulletin, we’ll share with you our plan for updates we have coming up, and talk about the patch process from a development perspective. There is also an update on the first multiplayer lake rotation, and details of a special reward for our beta testers. Stat attack First, let’s kick off with some stats. As of Wednesday 3rd November, you’ve caught an incredible… Well done to everyone who has contributed, and here’s to many more millions to come! Bassmaster Updates Now, onto the serious stuff. Bassmaster Fishing 2022 will continue to receive updates for quite some time to come. Our initial aim will be to make overall improvements and fixes based on your comments before moving on to adding more to the game. We will act on issues as quickly as possible once we have confirmed and reproduced the reports you have sent. This can feel like a slow process, but updates will be rolling out soon with smaller changes to begin with. You can expect more significant upgrades later. It’s worth noting that at this early stage we’re focusing primarily on fixing issues, rather than adjusting gameplay balance. These will come through a little further down the line. Update #1 The first of these patches is currently in testing, and covers gameplay issues that have been flagged as critical. This is a small update, but we wanted to ensure these problems were resolved as quickly as possible. We’ve already solved some server issues for all players, although we have a lot more to do to improve the multiplayer experience. Here are some of the fixes included – this is not the full list, but perhaps gives a sense of the size of updates. These are: * Fixed an issue in the tutorial preventing progress * Fixed an issue in which players cannot toggle back to underwater camera after snagging (PC/Xbox) * Fixed an issue whereby fish were swimming out of bounds in Lake Hamilton * Initial upgrades to graphic, UI, and menu Update #2 The full package of changes for Update 2 will be finalized ahead of its release. You can expect this patch to continue to focus on areas that players have fed back. These are the areas we are already addressing. These are: * Increasing online server accessibility and stability for all players * Trolling motor not functioning properly * Career mode games not completing properly (as a quick workaround, stop your boat, stand up, and the game should finish) * Making Cotton Cordell Pencil Popper lure function as intended * Tutorial and parts of tutorial able to be skipped * Improvements to lobby screen while waiting for Bassmaster Royale games There are additional areas we’ll be focusing on and investigating. Updates falling into these categories will be addressed but may wait for a later update. These are: * Online server naming * Audio notification improvements * Fish behavior rebalancing * Sponsorship discounts are not applied * Griefing prevention in multiplayer modes * Issues with catching blue catfish * Mastery items not unlocking * Tasks completed in game not rewarding players with cosmetics * Sponsorship and Bass Bucks rebalancing * Continued server improvements * Graphical issue improvements (hair clipping through hats, etc.) * Reel speed changes * Better signposting for where you can find your Deluxe content * Boat and lure stuttering For a full list of the larger issues we’re aware of and are currently working on (as well as some handy workarounds), please head here [http://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/known-issues-workarounds.47856/]. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but features a lot of the more regularly-reported issues. Our aim, particularly in this early stage after launch is to release improvements regularly. We want Bassmaster Fishing 2022 to be an excellent fishing game experience. Every piece of feedback you give us will help achieve that. Beta Jersey We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped throughout our Closed Alpha and Beta sessions. Your input and support has been invaluable as we’ve been building the game. We'll be sending you this ‘OG’ jersey as a token of our appreciation. You’ll be sent a key to redeem the jersey on your chosen platform by email. We don’t have a timeframe for this at the moment, but when we do, we’ll let you know.

Getting Started with Bassmaster® Fishing 2022
Hey there Anglers! We want to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone who has been playing Bassmaster Fishing 2022. It's amazing to see so many messages, catches and live streams. This article is your one stop shop for getting started with Bassmaster Fishing 2022. The Tutorial For new players opening the game, after you have chosen/created your angler you will load straight into the Tutorial. This is skippable any time simply by opening settings and hitting Quit. If you do skip the tutorial and want to re-play it you can find it in the Angler Hub. You can also take a look at the Manual [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/manual] here. Getting Started video series on YouTube To help give players some extra information and tips we have been uploading a series of Getting Started videos on YouTube In our first video “The Basics” we introduce you to the on screen UI, fish finder, map, finding and catching fish. Our second video takes a look at Snagging – what snagging is and how to un-snag your lure and the GPS marker system. The third video in this series discusses using the Trolling Motor and the Sponsorship system. (To note, we are aware that the discounts earned through your sponsors are not currently registering when you go to purchase your items, and that players on PS4/5 are also experiencing issues using the Trolling Motor we are aware and we are investigating) In part four we talk about Basic Cast Control Vs Total Cast Control. One thing this video doesn’t show you is how to actually control the cast when using Total cast Control. You start as normal by hitting the cast button, from here you need to hold down the cast button while using your mouse or joystick to pull back your rod, when ready push the mouse/joystick forward and release your cast button to release the lure. This does take a little practice to master but when you nail it, the results are awesome! Community Content There has also been some awesome community created content that we think are a great resource for players who want to master Bassmaster Fishing 2022. Starting with a great video by Professor Smooth [http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrrzG9aP1lanrOojYCJBXAg] This video covers the controls on Xbox, the user interface, sponsorships, how to fish, snagging, quick catch, lures and hooks - you name it, professor smooth will help get you catching fish! Professor Smooth - Bassmaster Fishing 2022 Getting Started The Basics [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DujycUyEvuU] Jumping into your first career tournament can be daunting, thankfully WobblyCaptain [http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC82nsa1pgNoQXZSjMQZOKeg] has a super helpful video showing you some of his spots and gives some handy advice about practicing and finding your spots - you can always hit "Practice" to learn the lay of the lake before you start the event! WobbyCaptain - Bassmaster Fishing 2022 College Series Toledo Bend [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9AT8GN8bbA] Feedback from you, the players is crucial to us improving the game so please do keep speaking to us via our Discord, Socials and Official Forums.

7 DAYS TO GO
To celebrate the fact we are now only 7 days from launch, here are 7 things you need to know about Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 1 – Our Largest Multiplayer Not only does Bassmaster Fishing 2022 have by far our largest ever online multiplayer, it also supports cross-play so you can hit the water with your friends, whatever you play on ! Prepare to battle it out in the brand new, highly competitive mode, Bassmaster Royale! Do you have what it takes to be the last angler standing and be crowned the Bassmaster Royale champion? If you prefer a less high-octane approach to your fishing, why not take to the water with a relaxing Fishing Trip? Relax and hunt down some Legendary fish. You’ll spot other players on the lake too - do they know where the hot spots are? Why find your friends and fish together? The best bit is, we’re just getting started. Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming roadmap, where we’ll talk about future content (including any new game modes)! Game Modes & Mastery [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/game-modes-mastery-challenges-bassmaster-r-fishing-2022] 2 – Exclusive B.A.S.S. Content Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is the official video game of B.A.S.S.®, which means you get to experience the true-to-life thrill of progressing up from the Bassmaster College Series, through the Bassmaster Opens and Elite Series and , finally, take on the Bassmaster Classic® to become the Bassmaster Champion! That’s just the beginning of the Bassmaster fun - we also have the legendary voice of B.A.S.S., Dave Mercer, as well as a vast selection of licenced content including boat wraps and clothing. If you bag the Deluxe Edition as well, you’ll get an exclusive B.A.S.S. rod and reel to boot (as well as loads of other goodies Deluxe Edition [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/bassmaster-fishing-2022-playstation-pre-order-deluxe-edition] ), too. 3 – 10 Pro Anglers In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 , you can choose to play as one of our 10 Pro Anglers or…compete against them! We have a fantastic roster of Pro Anglers in Bassmaster Fishing 2022 including, Scott R. Martin, back-to-back, Two-time Bassmaster Classic® winner Hank Cherry, Carl Jocumsen (the first Australian angler to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series), and the 2019 angler of the year winner, Scott Canterbury! If you’d rather go up against the pros then Bassmaster Fishing 2022 has a massive range of character creation options, clothing, cosmetics, and boats to make you stand out from the crowd on the water! How you plan to take down the opposition is completely down to you. Pro Angler Team [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/the-official-pro-angler-team-in-bassmaster-r-fishing-2022] 4 – Gameplay Fundamentals In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 , finding the fish, understanding the underwater environments, and using the right gear for the right situation is going to be critical to your success! Thankfully we have some awesome new features to help make life a little easier for you. Think you’ve found a bass-zilla treasure trove? Use the GPS marker system to drop a pin on that location that will always be there, whenever you fish that lake! In Bassmaster Fishing 2022, you will have an unlimited supply of some of the basic equipment. Once you progress through the ranks, your gear needs to match it. As does your reputation! Thankfully, Bassmaster Fishing 2022 features a sponsorship system. Improve your reputation and social following to approach sponsors and get an unlimited supply of lures from your preferred manufacture! Sponsors will be crucial in your journey towards lifting the Bassmaster Classic trophy this is largely due to another new feature, Snagging. Snagging your lure on the environment costs not only time but if you snap your line, your lure. You don’t have an infinite supply of lures, rods, reels and even boats so securing a sponsorship will save time and your hard-earned Bass Bucks. We want the experience of bass fishing to be as thrilling as it is in real life , and we know that, in competition, every second counts. So, we have introduced a feature called Quick Catch. If you can get your bass close enough to the boat you’ll have an opportunity to land that fish quickly - but if you fail, get ready to keep fighting as the risk of losing your catch increases by the second. 5 – 8 Official Venues Take to the water on 8 real-world Bassmaster venues including Lake Hamilton, Chickamauga Lake, Toledo Bend, St. Johns River, Lake Guntersville, Lake Ray Roberts, Sabine River and St. Lawrence River. All these lakes have been meticulously recreated using detailed mapping data which provides us information like terrain and water depths to make Bassmaster Fishing 2022 the most authentic bass fishing experience ever made. These lakes are all real lakes used during official Bassmaster events and offer stunning landscapes and environments that change as the day passes to night. And each lake features a diverse variety of fish species to catch! Fish Species & Venue Logos [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/fish-species-venue-logos-bassmaster-r-fishing-2022] 6 – Fish AI and Movement There are many variables that will and can affect your outcomes while bass fishing. Temperature, time of day, and environments , to name a few. In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 we have been working closely with freshwater biologists to help make your experience as authentic as possible. Our fish AI system takes multiple factors into account causing the fish to dynamically move around our 8 venues. There are hundreds of paths they might take between our various underwater points of interest! You’ll need to keep moving and work out where the fish are, when, in order to master your craft! The onboard fish finder will help you get an idea of the population and size of fish swimming around your boat, as well as providing valuable clues as to possible underwater points of interest. We’ve also brought in a very useful underwater camera, which is at your disposal to see what’s going on under the surface, so you can manoeuvre your bait away from snags and towards your catch Fish AI System [http://live.dovetailgames.com/live/bassmaster-fishing/articles/article/fish-ai-system-bassmaster-r-fishing-2022] 7 – Career Mode In Bassmaster Fishing 2022 you’ll have the opportunity to make a name for yourself by climbing the ranks in the official leagues of B.A.S.S. Starting in the Bassmaster College Series , where you’ll get your first experience of tournament style bass fishing, you’ll progress up the ranks and join the Bassmaster Opens where you’ll face off against a huge roster of anglers. From there , you’ll be promoted to the Elite Series - your gateway to the Bassmaster Classic. The competition will be fierce, so you’ll need to use everything you’ve learned! Do you have what it takes to lift the iconic Bassmaster Classic trophy? Find out October 28th.

The team is excited to announce that Cross-Play is coming to Bassmaster Fishing 2022! This means you can play with anybody who has the game, no limitations to platform. **Bassmaster Royale ** Bassmaster Royale is the new adrenaline pumping mode coming to the fishing game space. The aim of the game is to spawn in, find your hot spot, and catch more fish than the other players to avoid being eliminated in the 4 culling events that take place throughout the match. Survive the culling events and you are crowned the Bassmaster Royale Champion. When starting a match, you’ll spawn into 1 of 3 different spots on the lake each time and race to your hotspots to start hooking bass. Be careful though, other players might be trying to take your spot, so you’ll want to have a game plan as soon as you set off. By watching the leaderboard you’ll see where you stand within the match if you’re too low down you risk getting eliminated when the next culling event happens. If you get eliminated, better luck next time, if you haven’t been eliminated, then you’ll need to carry on catching more bass than the other anglers and increase your haul. If you successfully survive all 4 culling events, the player with the heaviest weight at the end is the winner of the game and becomes the Bassmaster Royale Champion. Have you got what it takes to be the last man standing? **Fishing Trip ** How about just relaxing and fishing with some friends? Well, we’ve got that too, if you want a non-competitive environment to explore then you can jump into any of our open lakes in the multiplayer part of our game, find your friends, and start fishing. This is a great mode if you’re just looking to hang out, learn venues together, or simply show off your new cosmetics. **What’s coming? ** Post launch the Dovetail Games team has exciting plans to bring new modes to multiplayer so players can fish against others to be the Bassmaster Classic® champion online, or where they can become the angler of the month in the Global Dovetail Fishing League! Whether you’re looking to be the last man standing, the Bassmaster Classic Champion of the world or simply hang out with some friends and relax on the water, we’ve got you covered in Bassmaster Fishing 2022. * Follow us on our social channels [http://www.facebook.com/DovetailFishing] * Sign up to our Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 Newsletter [http://live.dovetailgames.com/auth/register?returnPath=/live/bassmaster-fishing/about-bassmaster-fishing-video-game-2022] * Join our community Discord [http://discord.gg/z9zHX47vBv] * Follow us on Tik Tok [https://www.tiktok.com/@dovetailfishing?lang=en]

Gameplay Trailer & Launch Date Reveal - Bassmaster® Fishing 2022
Bassmaster® Fishing 2022, the Official Video Game, is launching on October 28th – and we are excited to announce that the game will be available with Xbox Game Pass from launch. And, we’re also delighted to announce that today you can also check out the latest, all-action Gameplay Trailer for Bassmaster® Fishing 2022. The game hosts a full complement of exciting new features, game modes, and mechanics. Large multiplayer lobbies, Cross Play, Bassmaster Royale, a fully licensed career mode, and lots more, is ready for you to tackle (and bring out those tackle boxes for) this October 28th. Check out all of the details below so you're ready to go on October 28th. Become the pro When you first jump into game, you’ll be able to play as – or compete against – 10 Elite Series anglers, such as the two-time back-to-back Bassmaster Classic Champion, Hank Cherry, the 2021 St. Lawrence River Elite Event winner, Takumi Ito, or our effervescent cover-star Scott Martin. You can play out your career just like the pros, starting out at the College Series, and battling your way to Bassmaster immortality – while using awesome branded equipment like Scott Martin’s Skeeter boat with a hefty 250HP Yamaha outboard motor. You’ll be taking on multiple tournaments when you start your career. Expect Pro Challenges, Grand Slam events, and traditional tournaments (where your goal is to fill the livewell with your 5 biggest bass) are just a few of the events you’ll need to conquer to make your way to the Bassmaster Classic. Your path to Bassmaster Champion begins at the bottom: The College Series. This is where you’ll start your career to get a feel for amateur tournament bass fishing. Your opponents will be learning the ropes, so expect heated competition from all manner of wannabe anglers. Once you vanquish the College Series, it’s time to bring on the big guns: The Opens. The goal of the Opens to get enough qualifying points to go to the Elite Series. If you can make it to the Elite Series level, you’ll need to use everything you’ve learned to finally get that coveted invite to the Bassmaster Classic: the highlight on any bass angling fan’s calendar. The Bassmaster Classic is where all your knowledge and experience come into play. You’ll have to put it all on the line to overcome all other competitors and become the Bassmaster Classic Champion. Master the waters You’ll be fishing 8 real-world venues when you get out on your boat for the first time. Points of interest, water depths, surrounding vegetation, and fish species weight are just a handful of things that you’ll have to look out for when fishing in these iconic venues. You’ll be fishing through dense swamps on the Sabine River, open waters on Lake Ray Roberts, or just admiring the views of the Memorial bridge at St. Johns River. Using the all-new underwater camera, you’ll be able to find points of interest around the venues where you can catch some truly big bass! Snagging is something that you need be careful of when you’re out fishing – as, depending on the environment you’re fishing and the equipment you’re using, you risk getting your lure snagged up on all manner of underwater dangers: weeds, wood, rocks, and more. Our dynamic time-of-day feature means you’ll need to practice fishing all throughout the day to really master where the hotspots are, and where you have most success on the water for different species and locations. The Fish AI in game move around the water depending on temperature, time of day, whether there are any underwater structures or not – all these things (and more!) are what you’ll need to master & track if you want to be successful in the game. The competition is just getting started Bassmaster Royale is an all-new, cross-play compatible, adrenaline-pumping game mode coming to the angling genre, where you’ll go head-to-head with other players to be the last player standing. To stay in the game, you’ll need to keep your fish weight total above other players, or you risk getting eliminated! We can’t wait for you to jump and start building your Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 career this October 28th. With so much to do in game, you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to start! And don’t forget that after launch on October 28th, we will have loads of updates and extra content coming to single and multiplayer, so it’s time to get practicing!

Fish AI System - Bassmaster® Fishing 2022!
In Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 we have been working with the pros to bring you a new next-gen Fish AI system. Today we are going to dive into how this works, and what tools you’ll have to hand to help scout out the waters and catch the biggest bass. Working with the experts Just like in real life, there are multiple variables that you’ll need to study and keep an eye out to get the best success when fishing. The development team has been working closely with freshwater biologists around the venues from the game. As well as gathering accurate scans of the water depth, we have been gathering data about the species, fish weight and fish population in the different venues that feature in the game. This means that you’ll have the most accurate experience when you venture out on your boat. Points of interest Venues in Bassmaster® Fishing 2022 have points of interest dotted around above and beneath the water. You’ll have structure such as pallets and trees that make hotspots for fish to gather around. You’ll want to explore the venues outside of tournaments and practice fishing at different times of day, different temperatures, and different locations. The fish are getting smart Our Fish AI system takes multiple elements and dynamically moves the fish around the venue. Fish have hundreds of paths that they will follow between different points of interest in the water. It’s important to move around as the time-of-day changes because a spot that was once thriving with bass at midday won’t be the same at different temperatures and different times in the day. This AI system mimics real life, so if you have any experience fishing in real life, that will help you here! But don’t panic if you don’t, we have lots of tools to help you find the fish. Below you’ll see a visual example of lines through the water that connect points of interest that the fish will move between. Finding those hawgs You’ll have a variety of tools at your disposal to help when finding and tracking big bass. First of all, onboard your boat you have a fish finder, so while you’re driving your boat around the venues, you’ll get readings on the size and population of fish around the boat. This is really helpful if you are fishing on a new venue for the first time, as you’ll be able to locate hotspots in the water and start hooking some bass. Fishing from a new perspective The underwater camera is a great way to find points of interest and to get a close-up look on the fish. While fishing you can toggle between underwater and over-shoulder camera angles on the fly, which is great if you like to mix it up while fishing and see the position of your rod. This is useful too if you’re using the trolling motor and need to check where you are going. The last thing you want to do is crash into something! But if you don’t want to use the camera at all, that’s ok too and you can switch it off completely in the menu settings. Come back later Once you have found a great spot to fish you can mark it up with the new map marker system. This allows you to mark a point on the map, select an icon and add some text to the tag such as the time of day. Once you add a marker it will also mark other useful information that you can refer to next time you look at your map. This is great if you are practicing out on the water and want to mark up a spot to come back to during a tournament. This is why it’s so important to learn the venues before you compete, to make it to the Bassmaster Classic you need to know where the big bass are! Using all the tools at your disposal, practicing, tracking on different venues, and marking it up on the GPS will help you climb the leaderboard and strike those big bass.
