    @vanadiumcobalt Who knows? The sea foam thing seems to have improved the spawn issue a bit, but still can't find either of the fish because they still despawn after a short while and then won't respawn unless you wait forever. Probably gonna give up on finding them for a while and come back to them in the future.

    @jcar4327 Yes man. But all I have left is fishing or I would have nothing else to do. I know where the plaice spawn but hours of searching have given no results. Even jumping on a boat and doing some deep sea fishing have given no results. I will spend some time looking for the Mackerel tomorrow and post back results if any. The new patch does show me landing and holding fish now though.

    @vanadiumcobalt Where do the big flatfish spawn? I haven't been able to find a spawn location for them.

    @jcar4327 Isle of whit is a good spot, get in a boat near the ruins. Also where it says to find them on the maps. Them small boats are essential I think as you can drift around the bays where it's calm....if it starts getting choppy head back in. Go slow though as the boats scare the fish if you go to fast. Mediate for calmer waters also. I have run around the coastline for ages so boats might be the way.

    • Issue 1: Coastal fish don't spawn. When they spawn sporadically fish dissapear after a few seconds.
    • Issue 2: Either because of issue 1 or because of another reason. The big Flatfish and big Mackerel are not able to be obtained.


    I can confirm all the two issues .... when i reach any coast i can see the coastal fish for some seconds them they just vanish. This is preventing me to finish the challenge too.


    PC Version here updatated to ver 1.1

    I have not found any big, just medium Plaice. I will have to use the Longship for the Mackerel as I have not seen small boats in Norway.

    @vanadiumcobalt There are two. One at your village spawn and another a Stavanger.

    @jcar4327 interesting. I’d noticed a correlation between choppy seas and disappearing fish, but from a personal standpoint, I’d say they’ve made it worse. I’d found a reliable & repeatable Big Cod spawn at Pt Walton, but after 1.1, it’s broken. I can get them to spawn after multiple reloads, but they disappear as soon as the line hits the water, or just as they get hooked. How hard can it be?

    @andrew187 I've been able to get them to spawn for two to five minutes without them disappearing. Has allowed me to catch maybe five six fish at a time. But the water has to be pretty calm. There seems to be certain times of the day that are better than others, and night fishing on the oceans is probably the worst because the water always seems to be roughest at night.

    The other issue I've noticed is that once you hook one a lot of the other fish in the area run away. They also seem to be much more aware of me while on a boat and run away more than they used to.

    Bump for adding it to the megathread.
    Also Big Eel should be added but I can't edit my post anymore. (A realy weird feature, just show an edit history per post)

    Update. Nothing in Norway so it's still bugged I guess.

    Just want to say thanks to the Ubisoft tech team for fixing the Fishing, one of the fun activities in the game. But when it was broken it took all the fun out of it... But I still can't find a Big Machkerel to save my life... anyone got any clues on where they are, if they are!
    Cheers

    I have put nearly 70 hours into nothing but finding all the fish in the game but Flatfish (Big) and Mackerel (Big) do not spawn anywhere.

    Why cant i still find the big fishes i need and why do all fish despawn, with the slightiest wave movements.
    In storms it makes cense for them not spawning, but some small waves should not make inpact.
    You Said it sould be fixed in 1.4 but se still have the problem

    @vanadiumcobalt Yeah, I gave up.

    @kieron-stokes I've spent about 70 hours on fishing and I can confidently say Big Mackerel and Flatfish don't exist in the game. It's been nearly 2 months since release, how is this even possible??

    Big Eel, big flat fish, and big mackerel are currently very likely bugged. They have never appeared in my game. This issue also been reported for a long time by multiple players and the result? Not patched after all this time.

    @imaginaryruins Very frustrating since it prevents you from completing the Fishing Hut delivery missions and therefore prevents you from getting the Swordfish melee weapon and completing the Ubisoft mission for wielding it.

    Is there any large mackeral, haki or flatfish to be found anywhere? Also, why do fish keep disappearing with a wave or after catching one fish?
