    Update:

    I was able to get all but the Big Flatfish and Big Mackerel. From what I can tell they don't actually spawn in the console versions at the moment.

    Hi all,

    We are aware of the issues with Costal fish and this is being looked into by the AC Team at the moment.

    Apologies for any frustration this causes in the meantime.

    Bream (small and regular) will spawn on the north and east sides of the tiny island next to the isle of wight.

    Bream (small and regular) will also spawn, though not appear in Odin sight, on the coast just to the west of folstanton in Kent (dock fast travel coast) . See the YouTube All fish locations vid - big sturgeon timestamp for the proper spot as have to be pretty close and calm seas to catch there.
    Whilst folstanton dock itself used to be reliable for all sizes of bream, since the patch they despawn immediately. The line kept breaking trying to catch the big one prior to the patch. However it was guaranteed to spawn right by the docks and beach when you fast travelled in.

    Having the exact same problem, walked along the coast and went in a boat out in the sea for about 15 mins up and down the coast and didn't see a single fish.

    @evolve_shadow Is there any area in particular in England that this is happening to you?
    Do you have any videos or screenshots ?
    This sounds worth raising.
    Thank you

    @ubit00n there’s suppose to be coastal fish in England? I didn’t get to any coastal areas till after the recent patch.

    Same Problem here. Run along the coast, but no fish.

    Other Problem is that some fish simply not or extremely rarely spawn. Trout, perch or catfish for example are everywhere. But some other fish like allis shad or hake for example are so hard to get. I mean, this is not a fishing simulation. I dont want to spent hours on hours just to get this damn swortfish challange and an achievement. Its even hard to recognize what fish is in front of you even if one use odin sight.

    If you want Hake then head to the outpost in the top left corner of the map and fish off the jetty there. Just dont let your longship in close as things will be a pain otherwise.

    @ubit00n There have been multiple threads discussing this issue; so, I would have thought this was already brought to the attention of the devs. This issue occurs EVERYWHERE on the COAST. The only places I have found it not to occur is in Northern East Anglia where there are several small islands that stop the waves from coming in. Basically what happens is if the water is even a little bit choppy it causes the fish to despawn as if it is during bad weather. What also occurs is that if you have a fish on the line when the despawn occurs the fish becomes unresponsive to be reeled in. I have two videos that show this happening, but when I try to add them I get a message saying I do not have enough privlages to complete this action.

    Yes this is a widely known bug among the players, I would hope the devs are aware of this by now. If you reload the game, there will be fish on the coast for maybe 60 seconds but then they despawn. It's something to do with the waves I think. Also the large flatfish and large mackeral are not in the game anywhere. Only people who have gotten them have used inventory editors.

    There are 3 confirmed locations for big hake unfortunately the longship presence is a hindrance at each. They're all in the north part of the norway region.

    1 - the outpost in top left corner of norway region - mixed randomly with hake, char, and redfish big
    2 half way up the fjord leading to the outpost on the right shore ( draw a line between the synchro points to get rough spot).
    3. The fast travel dock furthest left. Dont fast travel here as sometimes the fish spawns where the longship sits when you do. Random between redfish and hake on the spawn.

    Anyone know where to get cod?
    I've tried all along east coast but with the waves they dont seem to spawn, or if fish do spawn they aren't cod.
