    @violence1337 Would appear it got ignored or they would have mentioned it as it's on the "known issues" list still.

    And to people claiming it's "hard" for them to find the bugs and fix them, this isn't some 5 man team on kickstarter pushing out a Pong clone. It's a billion dollar company with thousands of employees that already took your money for a highly broken game that's taken nearly 3 months to fix things that should have been working on day 1. And they also took your season pass money, your money for cosmetic add-ons, + all the money from previous games. If a handful of guys doing unofficial patches for other games, for FREE can fix stuff faster than a dedicated team drawing an income, something is wrong.

    Hello all!

    I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. This issue is due to be fixed with TU 1.1.2, which will be deployed 16 February, 2021 (Tomorrow) at 1PM CET! We hope that your coastlines and oceans become plentiful with fish following this update 🎣

    If you're still missing fish along the coast or in the ocean following the deployment of TU 1.1.2, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Thanks all! 😊

    @ratchit66 I got all the fish w/o even trying, although I farmed a ton of shallow lake and river fish with melee and arrows. Suggest posting which fish it is you don't have then go to a known location. ONLY need one of each type, not one of each size.

    @bushwickedly Oh they are busy making skins for us to buy instead of fixing well known issues instead. I learned my lesson this time and no longer giving them my money for a broken product

    I need a Bream. I’ve been to all the locations. I’ve reloaded the game like 50 times. I’ve left the longboat elsewhere. I didn’t use Odin’s sight. I’ve thrown my line aswell as shooting an arrow. I’ve literally tried everything. I need 1 fish! 1 FISH!

    As far as I`m concerned it is now too late for Ubisoft to fix this issue because I am now giving up on this game! I have waited almost 2 months for them to fix an issue that prevents 100% completion but it is STILL NOT FIXED. It is such a shame because this could have been one of the best AC games without all the bugs, it is a beautiful looking game with great characters and a really good story but the crazy amount of bugs has ruined the game. It could have been an 8.5 or even a 9 from me but with all the bugs I would give it a 5.5 instead 😞

    It must be really hard to quickly fix the fish spawns so that the million players that are waiting can finally finish the stupid fish quest... The only players who finished this quest cheated with buying some sort of program to manipulate the inventory...

    No, I haven’t been catching the fish for the fishing hut quests. I’ve been catching just one of each type of fish for the trophy. I’ve caught them all but 1

    Did they fix the fish spawns in the new patch or completely ignore that?

    Still not fixed in either PS5 or PS4 version

    I still can't catch a Bream! Like please Ubisoft! That fish won't spawn in any area but Cent near a fast travel point even when I am supposed to find it around the coasts of Essexe, Suthesexe and Hamtunscire as well. But I have no fish anywhere in my coast! Oh they spawn, sometimes, but they vanish just seconds after I have sighted them with Odin sight! I thought the update for today Jan 14 would address this but it hasn't! I finish this game around 107hrs ago, why ago? Because I have spent 21hrs trying and miserably failing to catch a Bream! It is the only fish I need for the platinum!

    @ratchit66 yeah me too. I don't know what else to do. That fish eludes me and with it my platinum torphy. And I have tried everything I can think off

    @bushwickedly I am glad you got them as I wouldn't wish this frustration on anyone, but if the fish don't spawn we can't exactly catch them. I see them sometimes with the Odin sight in only 1 specific area but whether I use a fishing line or even the bow they are gone before any of the two mentioned items are in my hand or the arrow/fishing line touch the water. I have tried some suggestions from players but that Bream refuses to spawn and when it does it refuses to remain long enough to be caught it and all other fish just vanish and won't spawn even when meditating

    No fish at all in the east and south coast, I can say english sea has no fish for me, I need flatfish, cod and bream. Not mentioning the big mackerel in norway

    I haven't played for awhile now until patches get better, but I found somewhat better luck by fishing off/near uninhabited islands like ones the seals spawn on on the east coast and empty island south/southeast (not south west) and tried my best to stay right at the transition from river to sea but focussed on melee swimming under water or knee-high water instead of using the fishing line. As far as I'm aware, despawning was happening the entire time, but right AT the river/ocean transition, there was always normal fish that would often respawn more reliably (big/rare variants not so much, but NOT needed for achievement nor is fishing line despite what description states atm). Also, inlets are good area to hang around too assuming they are spawning as game considers the area a river or a lake.

    Anything that also spawns in rivers should be the priority location.

    TBPH, once realizing the fish spawns were bugged, and thinking you had to use a line + get every size, I didn't try for ach., however was hoping to get settlement quest so anything knee-high (lake, river, inlet, i.e. anything shallow) just farmed stuff as it was super quick to lunge while using 2 daggers. Was in a lake farming and fired an arrow, and it popped the achievement. Did a double take at the time I thought it'd be impossible to bother with that. Haven't checked my game in awhile, but I had TONS of everything. Only things that were really rare were cod. Bream, sturgeon, etc., will spawn even if broken.

    Here's some screen shots of my fish inventory and Good Catch just to know I'm not lying. Also, I sold off a bunch of fish AND turned many in already. Only fish yet to actually find are Big Flatfish, Big Mackerel, and Big Eel. Only know about big eel from forums. Also, "regular" flatfish and a very large icon for them, on-par with large fish in general, but are regular on mine.

    Very last pic has 4 Big Cod fwiw.

    10 minute edits and unable to upload native PS4 4k pics....

    Looking at my map now:

    -Essexe I fished a lot around Port Walton and the very tiny island above it.

    -Cent Fished heavily immediately east of Rouecistre Fortress (the inlet that borders it's east wall that looks like Florida, is FULL of flatfish just spam attack with spear or special attack dual daggers and clear all of them in minutes) until you reach the fast travel anchor. That area immediately east of Florida inlet is river/ocean transition. Swim and Odin sight, then melee. Only tiny fish are harder to melee due to speed. Stay under surface and fish are less likely to flee until after swinging your hatchet. Use lunge/sprint button and melee. If fish vanish, go back towards river-side of inlet and start over. Don't discriminate, just kill whatever fish appear, loot, and move on. Better chances of different fish spawning in and occasionally getting one you need.

    ***Essex/Cent border in river/ocean -Inlet immediately s/w of Maeldun cliff on shore. That river to ocean inlet too. This is a good place as fish from both areas AND river/ocean transition can occur in same spot. Fished heavily here.

    -Essexe Might have done Turrim Larus Ruins area too if there were seals there.

    -SouthSuthsexe, Seven Sisters fast travel anchor. Go west until almost slightly beyond Anderitum Hideout (it's n/w of Seven Sisters on map) then look south. There's a smaller island there with I think a wrecked ship. Might be loot, I forget. I was catching Big Bream there on northern tip (barely).

    **Rivers/lakes farms

    -Glowecestrescire Cragstone Watchtower jump into the lake below

    -Hamptunscire Hourglass-shaped lake right below (s/w) Readingum Abbey also Reindeer around there.

    -Grantbridgescire Grantbridge has a moat that surrounds almost the entire city. LOTS of harder to find fish there including eels. Odin sight and check ALL water areas here.

    -Cent Immediately north of Beamasfield right below the Medeuuage circle is a small, shallow lake. Tons of Pollock fish.

    -Cent ALL around Canterbury border

    ANYTHING with knee-high water can be cleared quickly and many locations have numerous species in same tiny lake making odds of getting everything greater and faster. Some lakes might only have one species though. That's mainly what I hit. Also, forget Folcanstan. Would be ideal spot for things like sturgeon but too unreliable.

    @imaginaryruins Well, the despawn issue is still very much with us after the 1.1.1-patch (playing on PC). Both yesterday and today I was fishing off the coast of Hamtunscire and whenever I spotted a number of fish, they were completely gone even before I could throw my fishing line into the water.
