Top 5 Tips for catching Carp & Coarse Fish in Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour
The key to catching carp in Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour is connecting all the dots to ensure you are fishing effectively. Here’s how; 1. Use your eyes When you arrive at the lake, look across the water for fish shows. These can be one of two things, either the fish crashing out of the water or bubbles coming up to the surface. Either of these indicate where the fish are and where you should be casting. 2. Use the correct rig The rigs in the game are best used over one of the three bed types found on the lake bed – silt, weed or gravel. When you have chosen the rig you want to use, find that type of lake bed to fish over. It is not effective to use a silt rig and be fishing in weed. 3. Use the correct bait Similarly to the rigs, the baits tell you how they behave in the water and how big they are. Ensure that the bait you are using matches the rig in terms of presentation and size. For example, you don’t want to be fishing a large sinking bait on a small (say size 8) rig when fishing over weed as the fish won’t find it! 4. Use your spod rod You’ve seen where fish are, you have a rig and bait that match the lake bed so now you just sit back and wait for it to happen? No – equip your spod rod and cast out free offerings to the fish – this will attract the fish in the area and draw more in from further afield. 5. Work your swim he final tip – work the area of water that your swim covers. You’ve seen the fish show in the vicinity but they may not be moving a great deal and you have cast 20 yards away from where they are. Start off by casting to the left of your swim and then keep recasting slowly moving more and more right across the water until you find where they are. Good luck!

Top 5 Tips for catching Predators in Fishing Sim World
The key to catching bass in Fishing Sim World is to ensure you are fishing effectively. Here’s how; 1. Use your sonar or watch the water - When you are driving along the lake in your boat, you’re sonar is giving you information on the current depth of the water and it is showing fish icons when you pass over any. The sonar is located under the middle of your boat so if you pass over fish, turn round and go back to the spot that you located them. If you are fishing from the shoreline, look for splashes and ripples in the water. 2. Consider the weather - The weather conditions and light levels are going to play a huge part in what lures will be most effective. Clear skies will favour the shiny or metallic coloured lures such as the Rat L Trap Chrome Blue Black. Cloudy conditions favour brighter colours such as the Rat L Trap Red Crawfish. 3. Fish the right depth - The lures in the game operate at different depths of the water and you need to choose the correct lure based on what depth you have seen the fish showing at on your radar. There is no point fishing for them near the surface if the radar showed they were at the bottom of 30ft of water. 4. Use the correct retrieval - The lures have different retrieval methods associated to them based which can be seen in their explanation when you select them. Ensure you use one of the appropriate retrieval methods to ensure they lure is attractive as possible to the fish. 5. Work your swim - The final tip – work the area of water that your boat covers. You’ve seen the fish on your radar but they may have moved off slightly. Start off by casting to the left of your boat and then keep recasting, slowly moving more and more right across the water until you find where they are. Good luck!
