    Same thing happening to me all the time (PC)

    Hello everyone,

    I am pleased to say that title update 1.1.0 (patch notes here) released today, and in it was included a fix for the missing swimming animations for fish:

    Addressed an issue where fish may lay on its side during the fishing animation.

    Following this update, it would be appreciated if we could receive confirmation that the fish now swim as intended, and also that they are visible when caught. If these issues persist, we'd like to collect short video clips demonstrating this so that we can reopen the investigation with the developers. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding, and please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or feedback! 🙂

    Same problem. I play on base PS4 digital copy of the game on external hard drive, patch 1.02.
    The bug / glitch can be seen in action here

    When catching big fish, Eivor moves like s/he is pulling it out of the water and holding it proudly in front of him/her for a moment.
    Just that there's no fish in his/her hands. They're empty.
    Just an optical bug because you still gain the resources but it's an obvious one...

    @kizza0721 I'm having the same issue. Fish animation locks/freezes when a fish is hooked on the line, then when I pull them out the fish are invisible. Looks just like the video that was posted. Eivor will even move like the fish is in her hands but the fish visuals didn't load or something.

    @mikkdc This is EXACTLY what's happening in my game. I've never actually seen what the fish look like out of the water.😑

    @littlebits744 Same issue on the PS5. It worked for my first 3-4 fish and ever since then it's been stuck like this. I've loaded the game again, restarted the console, even reinstalled the game and the issue persists 3 days later.

    I have encountered two bugs so far. One makes it so any customization I make to which NPCs are in my crew on my longship isn't saved. Another makes it so some fish appear to be already dead when they're swimming and they're invisible when Eivor pulls them from the water.

    @alcapwnd5 same bug on PS5, no animation, fish just float on surface as if dead. Also are invisible when landed!

    @kizza0721 This is annoying about to just give up on this game.

    @caspeer_costel Same just happened to me in patch 1.04. After loading up the game I immediately went fishing and it was fixed. The fish were swimming correctly when hooked and i could see them when i pulled them out the water. Then took a break from fishing, did Reda's daily missions and went back to fishing, only to find the no animation and invisible fishing bug had returned 😞

    When pulling out the fishing line and jumping in the water, the hands stay the same instead of the swimming animations.

    In my game, every time I hook a fish it never animates like it should. I just lays there like an unmoving log until I fight it in, at which point the fish never even renders in Eivor's hands. Its really disappointing because i love the fishing mechanics in the game and its a great way to pass time but with this bug I lose a lot of immersion. And its just not as fun. Any help would be much appreciated!

    I have the same issue. I also posted about ti but it got moved to the forum feedback section for some reason. 😕

    When I first started fishing I saw the fish animation, it changed after I progressed more in game. Did yours also start like that?

    Since the previous patch (and was not fixed in 1.04), fish are no longer swimming when I catch them. They also seem to be having a placeholder generic fish sometimes (e.g. a salmon looks like a grey trout, after hooking). Before catching, they are working fine, but will stop swimming and appear to be on their side until you reel them in. When catching, there is no animation, and catching big ones where you would usually be cradling the fish, you hold nothing but air, and the string seems to still run from the hand to the water.

    I can present video of the issue, just need to cut the video to size. This has been ongoing past reloads, restarts, zoning, and patching.
