Moved Strange Objects on Water0 Likes/5 Replies/138 ViewsOriginal poster Gibbers08 1 posts
Had anyone else noticed some strange objects floating above the water since update 1.2.0? I have an X-Box Series X and noticed these objects floating above the water when I was fishing near Scarborough. I have seen them in other locations as well. They look like a sea horse or something. I have done some searches but can’t find any reference to them. Thanks for any help.
I would upload a picture but can’t figure out how sorry, first time using forums.

It could be flatfish, I noticed the other day when I was trying to find the big ones that the others did this weird kind of fold when you hooked them and reeled them in.

@gibbers08 Was it small fish? I went to an ocean location with lots of waves and some of the fish are bouncing like 10ft up and down on the surface. It is pretty bananas. If you shoot them, they spaz out even more.
There should be a picture icon in the edit bar or you can just drag and drop pics directly into the message window if you'd like to add a pic.

The new wonky fish are Halibut. Since the start of the game they swim flat (horizontally). But if you look at the position of their eyes, they're obviously meant to swim through the water vertically. I don't know if this new 'twist' affects the small halibut, but I caught a few regular & large over the past couple of days since the new patch & both those sizes have that weird bend & they skim or float above the water. I can only assume the dev's have done something to them in order to distinguish halibut from Flatfish. So proof to those doubters on the megathread that say the devs aren't trying to fix the missing mackerel & flatfish.
I have photos but I can't upload them, I get an error message about dimensions being too big. Sorry.
