Fishing is bugged, you only get a pile of guts, no fish filets
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Tried fishing again after the new patch (0.55), caught 2 fish, had about 8 free inventory slots. Every time i prepare a fish i only get a pile of gut, no filets etc.

Long story short, fishing is currently broken and useless.

I only got the Small Pile of Guts (100%) and no fillets.

I also had 4 fillets in my inventory in a pot from 0.54, which disappeared in the new 0.55 stable update. I suspect they were removed because the fillets could not be cooked previously.

However, you can still fish for the thrill of the catch and then die of starvation while dreaming of your Filet o' Fish sandwhich. Perhaps it's only a perception thing, but it seemed much more random whether or not a fish would come along and nibble at the bait. I sat in one spot for what seemed like three minutes without a status change. Then I moved locations (and started a stopwatch app) and one showed up within 30 seconds.

ok, maybe in the next update...would help tremendously in .55 tough ;)

Hello backwoodshunter and thank you for the report.
I have tested this thoroughly but unfortunately I was not able to reproduce the issue you have described. Please retest once next update hits Steam and report back in case the issue re-appears.
