Hey, anglers! Today we’ll take a closer look at one of the key element of feeder fishing, namely, Feeding.

Feeding implies “providing food” for a certain areas of a waterway to attract bottom fish and keep them in that area. In this DevBlog entry we’ll tell you all about how the Feeding system functions as a feature within the game.

How Feeding works.

The chum that you use to feed the selected feed area can have different properties depending on the components used to prepare it. In the game, you can use either basic groundbait mixes by simply adding some water or make your own unique chum by using different components and additives. Either way, the efficiency of your chum will directly depend on the components as well as the conditions in which you plan to use it.

You can prepare the chum mix only when you are already at a waterway, because it stays fresh only for a limited in-game period of time and should be used within the time limits shown on a special indicator in your inventory. Separate packed components and particle mixes, on the other hand, have no expiration date.

Besides, ready-made chum is very inconvenient in terms of transportation. That’s why once you leave the waterway, all the leftovers remaining from your prepared chum will be automatically disposed of.

To start Feeding the fish, you must place the chum into a feeder and cast it to the desired spot.

You can find more info about feeders in this DevBlog entry:

Feeder Fishing: Part 1
Feeder Fishing: Part2

Once in the water, the chum begins to spread from the feeder, depending on its components, the type of the feeder you are using and the speed of flow. By seeping from the feeder, the chum creates so-called “Feeding spots” or “feed area” that attract bottom fish to the area.

Of course, many factors should be taken into account in order to make the Feeding most effective. You should consider the bottom terrain, time of day, weather conditions, temperature, speed of current, components used for making the chum and what fish they will attract and even the amount of chum you need to distribute in the given area.

It is important to keep in mind that even the most efficient and abundant Feeding won’t help you get many bites, if the feed area is initially devoid of fish. That’s why it’s always important to explore and study the waterway to select the areas with abundant fish activity.

At this stage, the only way of Feeding in the game will be with the help of feeders. In the future, however, we will most likely be adding other methods, like tossing the chum by hand. But it is too early to talk about at the moment.

The feeder is usually filled with a special feeder mix made out of many components to attract the fish. By casting the feeder repeatedly in the same spot, it creates a so-called “chum spot” that builds up the feed and attracts the fish, resulting in much more frequent bites and bigger catches!

Before you start feeding fish it’s important to study the bottom terrain and look for areas with higher fish activity and then prepare the feeder bait. Time after time, by filling up the feeder and recasting it to the same chosen spot, you’ll be able to attract a whole school of fish. The length of the hooklink can be adjusted by securing the line to stop it from running, but one must be careful not to lose the hookbait when making a powerful cast. 

You can feeder fish by holding the rod in hand or use special rod stands that will let you make multiple casts using a number of rods simultaneously. The rod’s flexible quiver tip swill shows even a slight fish bite while using an alarm bell is a sure way no to miss it. With some practice and proper effort, this method should definitely pay off, rewarding the angler with a hefty catch!

Сhum  will work almost anywhere, but this method is most popular in Europe, where there the “white”, no-predatory fish are more abundant. Crucian Carp, Bream, Tench, Common Carp, and many other related species are you most likely catch when feeder fishing!

Hey, angling friends!

Today we’ll give you a little insight into the captivating world of feeder fishing and tell you about this very popular technique, widely practiced and much loved by anglers worldwide!
Feeder fishing was originally invented in Great Britain - a nation with an immense history of fishing, and one that particularly enjoys this sporty pastime.
Two things make feeder fishing different from all other methods: the use of feeders instead of simple traditional bait (that’s where it gets its name from) and the use of special fishing rods with a soft, sensitive quiver tip.
The quiver tip’s sensitivity shows the rod’s “test”, usually measured in ounces or grams. The right “test” depends on the fishing conditions and target fish that you plan to catch. If properly chosen, this parameter should allow identifying even the slightest fish bites in any conditions. Enjoy your feeder experience with Fishing Planet and tight lines!
