@gryma I call BS. Your YouTube video doesn't show you catching any big fish; just claiming the Swordfish. No console player has got this challenge. Not sure why you're here throwing up a smokescreen, or why you're telling people not to bother. In fact, you told people not to bother in your video! Is that because the only way to get it is to use an inventory mod? Don't be a nuisance.

I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the development team intend to deploy several fixes in regards to fishing in TU 1.2.2. This update will be deployed 15 June, 2021 at 2 PM CEST / 8 AM ET. The team are deploying a fixes for the following issue:
- Addressed an issue that prevented players from catching fish from a small boat.
- Addressed various issues with Ubisoft Core Challenges unlocking (Stinky but Deadly)
If you are still encountering trouble with either of these issues following TU 1.2.2, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:
- You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
- The issue you're still encountering in-game (such as Stinky but Deadly remaining locked despite meeting the requirements).
Additionally, please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud. We can then pass these reports to the development team for further investigation.
I'd also like to provide you all with an update regarding the missing fish. Following TU 1.2.1, big flatfish / mackerel and small halibut / sturgeon were added to selected locations in-game. We have not yet had any new information about these fish being added into additional locations in TU 1.2.2. As the development team mentioned they intended to release a full fix for this issue in June in their Dev Blog, I have reached out to them for an update. As soon as we have any new information to share you about these missing fish, we will let you all know within this thread as soon as we are able to.
EDIT 15 June 2021, 15:10 UTC: The development team have reached out with an update about the repopulation of the missing fish. They should now be more widely available throughout the world for you to catch!
If you are still unable to find big flatfish/mackerel or small halibut/sturgeon whilst fishing in the world, please don't hesitate to reach out so we can investigate this further.

@fdeboer1 Because people want to know where we can get Swordfish in the beginning, when i gave the locations in the comments, they call cheating because i didnt show them the fishing spot in the video. Yeah, my mistake (because now im the only one want to help people to get the sword too) was to didnt record but hey, that's normal to register something like 30h of fishing
At last, you think what you want, in any case i gave my infos to the support.

It's been great to see the community come together and talk about this problem over the last few months.
However, on that glorious day (hopefully not too far in the future) when some lucky sod posts "I've got a big one!" (Dirty minded lot, get your mind out of the gutter!) all I'll say is they'd better come armed with screenshots so other people know where to go
Otherwise they might need to watch their backs!

Flying Bream on the same location as the flying flat fish. I could catch other small and regular fish before and after this one, but all big fish start flying. @TheeElf I can shoot the small and regular, but big fish I can not shoot (probably because they fly?) same happens if you fish south east of the island @Gryma mentioned.

@b00msie Why can't you shoot them? You mean like no targeting/red highlight? Every flatfish I saw I shot without any problems and could loot. I never once saw one that I couldn't kill. If that really is a big flatfish, I wonder why you are able to see it and I can't. I had no problems getting any other big fish after the 1.1.2 update. I was fishing on the north and northwest side of Isle of Wiht. I'll try the southeast side after a while and see if I have any luck there. Do you have a video from one of the Big Flatfish you were catching? I'm just trying to simulate conditions such as weather, time of day, etc..

Sorry, but I have to ask: How this all fish bug still possible in 1.1.2?! As an engineer, and developer, there are rules, how to test a patch.
First time have bug: [censored] happend
Second time: Okay, they not figured out YET, next time they will
Third time: complete incompetence?!
Are there any tester catch big flatfish on PS/Xbox?
If they did: where?
if not: why this patch came out without it?!
I've fustrated now, since we paid a LOT of money, and this make more fustration, then fun...

I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. The development team are still looking into the missing large fish. We have also reported the cases of the flying fish to the development team as well. They're taking a closer look at this strange behaviour too.
At this moment in time, we have no new information to share regarding these investigations. Please be assured that once we have any new information to share, it will be posted within the forums. We thank you for your continued patience as we keep looking for these missing fishes.
@erdosifazy - Hey there! Please note that I'm a member of the player support team, not a member of the development team. I can understand your frustration with this issue (I'm also looking for the swordfish). We've passed on all your reports and comments to the development team. As soon as we have any new updates to share, they will be posted within the forums. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and appreciate your ongoing patience at this time.
@VanadiumCobalt - I've also noticed I've been able to loot large bream in the river raids, but I've seen no other fish dropping. I'm not sure if other fish are available to loot, but I know this isn't the first instance of lootable fish. I'd be interested to know if anyone else has been able to loot other types of fish during the river raids, or just large bream.

For the people saying to just shoot the fish, as of the latest patch, big fish still immediately fall through the ground and vanish when shot with an arrow.

@quixy21 Not all big fish, I caught a bunch yesterday with the bow. Until I got frustrated with my horse tossing me off in the middle of the ocean. I did notice that fishing with the line seems to have gotten worse since the patch. I used to have trouble reeling in maybe 1 in 20. Yesterday, if I was on a boat it was more like 9/10 problematic. It was almost like the "mash" button wasn't even doing anything.

Could it be that there is a big flat fish, but Eivor simply cannot pull it out of the water as the fish always swim behind him when Im on the boat? Have the same phenomenon in Norway, which I believe is the big Makrele

@yuyu1989 Hard to say. You can normally tell the big when you see them. Regular flatties snap the line more than any other big fish in my case.
