Welcome to discussion
@ubi-woofer Hello, actually I spent many many days (more or less about 60 creed days) there (off the coast of Maeldun) and I can see only small and standard ones, I never found big ones ...never !
The only big flatfish I found is off the coast of Werham (where there are the only big bream I found too) but after that only one flatfish I can see a lot of strange things as the fish appear and after just few seconds they disappear, even with the calm sea, good weather and so on.
So, you answer, I regret to say, doesn't solve the issue.
@imaginaryruins You only need to catch one of each type of fish to earn the "Good Catch!" trophy - you don't need to have completed the full range of fishing hut challenges nor the hunter challenges to obtain the Platinum. The Swordfish Connect Challenge is limited to Ubisoft Connect only, and isn't associated with a trophy. So, if you make sure that you catch one of each type of fish, the "Good Catch!" trophy should pop for you. Regarding issues in my own game, I didn't encounter any progression-stopping bugs at any time, though I did glitch into my longship and later on a tree once each, and died because I couldn't free myself. I've submitted several of my own videos to the developers to help in their investigations for particular issues, including ones to do with fishing (but not the absence of the fish mentioned here). I haven't admittedly attempted to finish the fishing hut challenges myself yet, but it's something I'll be working on now in the post-game!
@VanadiumCobalt If I'm somehow lucky enough to find the needed fish despite the spawn issues under investigation I'll be sure to share the locations here. As is, I'm awaiting an update from the team just as you all are in order to get these challenges completed myself!
@m_scatterbrain Just to confirm, you were able to catch a big flatfish for definite off the coast of Werham? Are you able to provide a screenshot of where?

@ubi-woofer The issue is the Big versions of the Mackerel, Flatfish and Eel aren't spawning for people to be able to acquire the Swordfish from the fish monger in Ravensthorpe.
The small/regular variety of these three are plentiful, so getting the Good Catch! trophy isn't a problem.
@ubi-woofer I'm sorry ...I didn't write in a proper way that sentence likely. I recognized the big flatfish (because it's very simple to do that) but as soon as I tried I was unable to catch him; the fish started to run in a circle and above the boat....
I was able to catch one big bream and only one ... and this because the fish appear and disappear. Staying on the jetty you can only find small and standard bream, the big ones usually are a bit far away. Therefore I tried to go on the boat and I was able to catch just one big bream. I'm still missing 1 big bream,. the big flatfish and the big mackerels.
That place anyway is very simple to find: going down on the coast from Werham, there is a jetty and near that a small house. the boat (actually are more than one) is in front of the jetty.
here the snapshot
@Ubi-Woofer one update from my last fishing campaign. Spending many creed days and waiting a sunny and calm day I was able to catch 3 big bream in Folcanstan. In the past I tried the same many times without success.
So, the issue is related to big flatfish and big mackerels definitely.

So glad the floating boat in Vinland and Eivor's left-foot-forward glide were finally patched, because everyone from reddit to youtube comments was ready to throw the game disc in the paper shredder for how badly those broke the game.....
Now, how about fixing the damned ocean fish from despawning already? Big Flat, Mackerel, and Eel? Or what about fish falling off the map after killing them? 100+ bug fixes that make cyberpunk look polished, with many being so obscure most wouldn't even know they were in the game if it wasn't mentioned in the patch notes, and yet the 10's of thousands of people not able to finish a basic settlement quest after almost 3 months is incredibly pathetic. Since it's clearly such a serious bug that it can't even be prioritized after nearly 3 months (probably closer to 4 or 5 months now factoring in how long of a gap between patches and will be spring by next patch release) is utterly embarrassing. Add the damned fish to Reda, or another npc for sale, put them in one of the 4,975 loot containers that have literal junk in them, or gift them to us; do something and stop dragging butt like a dog with worms too cheap to see a vet....

Absolutely ridiculous.....136 hours put into this game and I’ve needed 1 fish (bream) for the last 3 weeks for the platinum trophy they show for a second and then disappear completely. I’ve tried everything people recommended. I’ve tried ALL the correct spots to get it. I’ve watched countless YouTube videos and nothing works it’s bugged.
I was hoping the latest patch fixed it but obviously not. It should be a simple fix so why it’s been ignored since release is beyond me.
Thank you for your latest replies I'll address these individually below, but first, I just wanted to verify Outlander1982's previous information that small Sturgeon can be found near Rouecistre Fortress in Cent! I looked there myself last night, and was able to fish five small Sturgeon from the waters in order to fulfil the fishing hut task. I'll include screenshots below to hopefully help you all identify the fish you're looking for, and where you should look:
A great tip I picked up from reading these forums and other online resources is to scan the waters with Odin's Sight to identify groups of small fish, and then activate Photo Mode and use this to examine the fish in the water to see if there are small Sturgeon hidden somewhere. This is what I did to create my first image above - the Sturgeon have definitive ridged top fins and thin tails, so it was easy to tell them apart when viewing them so closely.
I also captured a short clip showing that the fish can be caught, which you can view here if interested:
Let me know if the above information is helpful! I'll keep you updated with regard to the other missing fish as and when updates become available, but for now, I have no new information. Now, in response to your individual replies -
@m_scatterbrain Thanks for the additional information! I'll take a look there myself and see if I can spot the same big flatfish you believe you saw. I'm also in need of big Bream, so if there's any chance I may find one there or in Folcanstan, I'm keen to take a look around both for this investigation and myself
@Valen78 I opened an investigation myself into fish refusing to be caught / issues with catching them even if in range, as I experienced the same behaviour myself while fishing. I'll add your report to the investigation, but I don't suppose you've captured any video clips showing this type of issue that I could forward?
@dannyrhinos89 Bream are available in the game and are known to be found in the seas around Folcanstan - I'd try fishing there and see if you can grab one. I'd recommend going to the western shore, and taking a small fishing boat out a little way into the waters so that you can reach the fish that spawn further out. Good luck!
Hey @asgardian02 I've noticed that behaviour only if I startle the fish by getting too close to them on the shore / row my boat too close to them. The rest of the pod normally will continue swimming in the direction they were going and one will break off to bite at my line. Could you provide a clip showing exactly what you mean so I can judge? In the meantime, maybe try staying further away and casting your line further, to see if you have better luck.
but the problem is that if i row the boat eivor grabs his bow instead, then when i press C i am already moving and fish start to move away.
Then i takes rougly 8presses of N to draw the fishing line and by that time most are gone. once i have caught a fish i need to row roughly 10meters orso to be able to cath one more.
Thats a process that is no fun. I made an etire topic about it:
So fishing is just another activity thats to be meant as a time sink. A massive at that.
Not only does it take quite some effort to even get 1 fish (50-100 space smashes is pretty common), in addition to that the line just breaks for no reason, adding further to the frustration.
Then also fish constantly move away from your shadow or something. So once you have spotted some fish after one throw of the line, all the fish are gone. Making fishing even further frustrating.
In every area there always multiple different fish sorts including small, regular and big ones. So getting the ones you need is already plenty hard.
But the fact that they all move away after even 1 throw is seriously a bad design. Then i have to row in a boat which is another pain as that is a total bug fest. When ever i Press E to start moving a small boat Eivor just grabs his bow instead
since finally a support staff answers here, could you make the big feedback and suggestions topic i started a sticky, that way ppl can continue to comment on that one instead of creating new topics about the same stuff over and over ;_)
@asgardian02 Out of curiosity, have you previously rebound some of the keys for particular actions to others? Do you still have the same issues if using different keys for using your weapon / throwing out the fishing line? I play on PS4, so unfortunately I'm not fully familiar with how fishing works on PC, however it sounds as if you may have a conflict with the bindings that is causing the issue with the bow being drawn instead of using the line properly.
My experience of fishing on PS4 is quite different to yours on PC it seems - while I do see fish swim away at times, they're not difficult to pursue so long as you are cautious with how far you row your boat and you don't lose track of them. If you have a controller you could possibly test the fishing with on PC, it would be helpful to know whether you feel the same about the experience when using that as when using keyboard and mouse.
Regarding your feedback topic, I'm unsure which you're referring to, however in terms of addressing feedback we would always prefer to have separate threads for individual feedback topics / individual players' feedback. This allows us to address individual ideas in-depth and means that players are able to find a thread for their idea / feedback much easier due to it not having a generic title. Thank you for taking the time to create a thread though! You're welcome to share all of your own ideas there so that we can take a look at them all in one place.
I left all keybinding on keyboard as is, i did however make macrcos on my mouse for easier combat. Thats just the 1,2,3 and 4 button moved towards the mouse.
I also draw my bow, when i want to jump, or all sorts of things, and i have seen this in other topics too.
Made a very extensive and long post in regards of stuff i would like to see return in valhalla, would be nice if someone responded to that. There hasnt really been much interaction here from ubisoft though
https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/93217/the-big-suggestions-and-feedback-topic/51 here it is
i have no idea tom film myself while playing though, would have to look into that

@Ubi-Woofer they aren’t there on my game, At folcanstan they de spawn instantly before I can take my fishing rod out that’s what I’m saying, honestly I’m so frustrated I’ve fished in every place they are meant to be believe me I’ve researched, like I said I’ve watched countless YouTube videos and I’ve tried suggestions put here or on reddit. Ive literally spent the last 3 weeks trying to get it.
My issue is they de spawn instantly I can stand on the pier at folcanstan doesn’t matter how I get there be it fast travel or just ride there on my horse, I use my Odin sight and they show for a literally a second then they completely disappear and don’t come back I’ve waited over an hour in real time. I’ve been out in a small boat waiting, I’ve stood on the pier and waited they just don’t appear for me.
I’ve fast travelled back and Forth, I’ve left the animus, I’ve tried meditating, I’ve tried loading previous saves every time results in the same scenario. They Just disappear.
