After I got the bug with coast fish at the Folcanstan docks, while I was fishing, i continued with the Cent arc story, i had to go to the docks and still no fish when I get there. started the net mission and ended it, fast travel to the dock and I was surprised to see some fish animations. did not move, did not use odin sight, I chose the fishing line and very slowly approached the water and i was able to get 2 small Bream...then the fish disappeared again lol.

It seems Ubisoft are just ignoring this issue, coastal fish have been messed up since release and still they’ve not bothered fixing it. Do they even play the game?
Imagine putting a trophy in the game that’s basically unattainable, I’ve needed a single bream for weeks now to get platinum and it just instantly de spawns, Absolutely ridiculous.

So, after months of trying absolutely everything possible I still never managed to get that bream. I decided to just preorder the DLC ready for when it comes out and I played ‘The Legend of Beowulf’ quest that came with it free. Once I completed the entire quest I thought I could try go back down and catch a bream - again.
Fast traveled to the dock on the South Island and threw my line out - without using Odin’s sight. Within seconds I had a bite and reeled it in. To my surprise it was the bream I had been searching months for! The ‘Good Catch’ trophy popped then finally the Platinum did!
No idea if this would help anyone but maybe if you’ve finished the game and trying to get the trophy, and wanting the DLC try this method and it may work. This was a weird solution and obviously not the perfect workaround but thought I’d share it because I’ve been frustrated for months just as I can see some others have been. Hope I helped or at least given people some hope! PLATINUM BABY!

This issue still isn't really fixed. You can mitigate it to a degree by going to the coast, casting out your line, and then waiting. After about one to two minutes of sitting there with your line out it will spawn some fish but they're on some sort of timer because within a minute or two they will all instantly disappear even if you've killed any of them with an arrow. I just had a Flatfish (Large) disappear on me after I shot it and then when I used Odin Sight the small fish I saw less than five seconds ago littering the sea were now all entirely gone and they weren't even close to the flatfish nor off in the distance.
Unless you are very patient it's rough to get any of these things to spawn and those missions where you have to turn in tons of fish are effectively impossible to finish, especially with some of the ones that require four large fish. You pretty much can only catch one fish every two to three minutes if that and you have to catch your first one within like ten seconds of it latching on if you want a chance at maybe getting a second one.
Update: Turns out not only are they on a timer but if they bite your line they will disappear while on it. Just had it happen to me with a halibut (Large). So even if you wait for them to spawn and they bite your line with you hooking them you're not guaranteed a reel in. It also doesn't look like they respawn if you wait, you may need to move away or meditate before they spawn again a single time.

Same as you lot: I miss small/regular/big breams. Saw the glitch several times.
No big mackerel, no big flatfish to be found.
Hope those issues will be dealt with.
I love the country and keep roaming it (playing Assassin's Creed Valhalla (OST) Full / Complete Official Soundtrack in the background, because we can't enjoy enough the music with the high frequency put on), though I have nothing to do, but
- upgrade all the gears, so farm money (fishing, sell them),
- try to complete the Fishing Hut Quests (but the fishes that I miss are glitched, so I could get the Stinky but Deadly reward),
- would be glad to Avenge the death of 10 players (and get the Hall of Slain reward), but I can't find any death player to avenge.
Got all the achievements, but Take my hand, The enemy of my enemy, Disorder of the Ancients that are bugged (can't have them, though I've completed the requirements to have them!).
So I go to kill some Saxons and Bandits... for the pleasure of roaming the country, but frustrating! But I can't stop to play, so addict that I am with this country and music, and those dark ages.

Odin Sighted at least 5 Flatfish (big) of the Southeastern coast of the Isle of Wight. Tried catching them with fishing lure, they will bite and you can hook them. However, when you reel them in they just go underneath your boat. It will not let you catch them no matter how long you can stay in the tug-of-war with them. Eventually, it will snap the line and disappear.

@flexforce16 Yes... Fishing from a boat is crazy like this. It seems obvious that this is the intended way to fish (or from a pier), but the fish almost always swim under your boat (or pier) and you'll never catch them.
Fishing is bugged is so many ways (such as the one where fish disappear moments after you've spotted them)... Very frustrating!
