Many adventurers have been drawn to the fabled waters of Vindictus, the sword-wielding bear. There’s much more to the world-famous fishing spot than initially meets the eye. While enjoying an afternoon of fishing, it’s important to keep in mind the time of day and how long it’s going to take to catch the fish. This article is going to teach you some of what you need to know about fishing in Vindictus so that you can optimize your time spent there.
Late Morning/Early Afternoon
It’s important to remember that the bear fishing season in Vindictus runs from May through October. During these six months, the fish become active and will bite at just about any thing that moves. It’s important to time your fishing sessions accordingly so that you don’t waste any of your fishing time. As mentioned by the creators of the game, the ideal fishing time in Vindictus is during the early morning or late afternoon hours. This is because at these times, the water is a little more still, which makes it easier for fish to bite and easier for you to see the bites on the end of your rod. If you’re really lucky, you may also catch a fish that’s big enough to eat as soon as you land it on the shore! For this reason, it’s important to get up early in the morning or stay up late at night so that you have plenty of time to fish. Before you know it, those golden hours are gone and it’s time to get ready for school or work. The morning hours are often filled with rush-hour traffic and other people’s bad moods, so there’s no guarantee that you’ll have a stretch of quiet time to fish. This is why it’s best to get up early or stay up late so that you can use the time when no one else is around.
You also need to take into consideration that the fish in Vindictus are usually found in warm waters. According to Gamepedia, the water temperature in the river should be between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit for the fish to be active and biting. If the temperature is below 60 degrees, the fish will just swim around and won’t bite at all. You can use this to your advantage by either bringing a fishing rod with you that’s specifically designed for warmer waters, or you can ask the locals where the fish are biting and head there to catch some of the delicious fish. You may also need to take some time off work to get to the location of the biting fish, so be sure to make plenty of arrangements with your employer. There’s nothing worse than showing up at work, ready to fish, only to find out that the fishing is poor due to the cold water. You can also use this to your advantage by heading to a location known for its fishing and having some fun while you’re there.
Few People Around
It’s also important to remember that there aren’t a lot of people around in Vindictus. While this is a great thing in terms of being able to have some peace while you fish, it can also work to your disadvantage. Even during the off-season, there may not be a lot of people around to see you catch a fish or to help you out if you happen to throw your rod in the water by accident. For this reason, it’s best to fish in areas where there are a lot of people so that you can have the assistance of others if you need it. On the flip side, if you want to do some exploring or want to take a break from fishing for a couple of hours, you may find that there aren’t a lot of people around to disturb you. For the most part, you can avoid this by simply bringing your fishing rod with you whenever you go to Vindictus, especially in the off-season. If you do happen to throw your rod in the water by accident during the peak fishing season, you may want to consider leaving it in the water for a couple of minutes until some more peaceful fishermen come along.
To attract fish in Vindictus, you need to use the right kind of bait. Gamepedia lists minnows, earthworms, and leeches as the best bets, but you should experiment with what sounds like the most interesting and realistic creatures to you. According to Gamepedia, the fish in Vindictus are omnivorous, which means that they’ll eat just about anything. This includes insects, fish, and even other animals. For this reason, you may want to consider bringing some worms, minnows, or other small fish with you to Vindictus in case you hook a hungry bear. In the off-season, you can use a breadcrumb trail as bait, as bread attracts a lot of fish and breadcrumbs look like small animals that might be interesting to a bear. You can also use pieces of jerky or sausages as bait, as these are often the kinds of things that bears would eat. The most effective way of catching fish in Vindictus is through the use of artificial lures. These are lures that look like actual fish and are usually designed to look like the kind of fish that you’re trying to catch. Artificially lures are relatively inexpensive and easy to find, which is why you should try them out if you don’t have much money to spend on fishing gear.
Lures That Work
While you don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money on lures to catch fish in Vindictus, you do need to try out a few different kinds to see which ones work best for you. Gamepedia mentions the following lures, which are all available from online retailers:
- Minnows: These are small fish that are a similar size to the fish that you’re trying to catch. They usually come in a handful of different colors and can be used to attract a variety of fish. Most people use minnows to catch trout, but they’ll work just as well for catching bear fish. You can use minnows in combination with leeches or worms to increase your chances of catching a bear.
- Ragworms: These are larger than minnows and have a similar effect on attracting fish. You can use them to catch fish of all sorts, including the elusive brown bear. You can find ragworms in most large cities, so it’s not necessarily something that’s available only online.
- Leeches: These are very popular among fishermen in Germany and other parts of Europe. The reason for this is that they’re easy to use and require virtually no maintenance. You just need to rinse them off whenever you catch them to keep them alive. They’re particularly effective when used in conjunction with other types of bait, such as minnows. You may need to try out a few different kinds of leeches before you find one that works best for you. Once you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t use them before.
- Hooks: The best kind of hook to use in Vindictus is a sharp, protruding V-shape hook. The reason for this is that these hooks penetrate the flesh of the fish, which then causes large amounts of blood to appear on the water’s surface. It’s important to note that not all fish are going to be caught using a hook. Sometimes you need to use your line and sinker, which are more traditional forms of fishing equipment.
Once you’ve tried out these different kinds of lures, it’s time to go back and try them out in the water. Take your time and make sure that you use a slow, gentle pitch when trolling your flies. Most importantly, have fun!
