Fishing aptitude over 1?

Unable to get fishing up over aptitude 1, is this the max unlike other skills?

No, fishing aptitude goes up like any other. In fact I know one person with 150+ aptitude ( :eyes: )

If yours isn’t going up then there’s a bug. You have to take it a bit past the rollover point for it to kick in but I assume you’ve done that.

aye have spent hours fishing for cooking mats etc but still stuck on absolute lvl 1 apt

Well that’s not good, and it’s not an everyone issue.

I would screenshot a catch right at the point where the aptitude Icon and Catch XP popup happens and then put that in the Bugs forum using the Bug Reporting template.

I hope that gets resolved for you. :fishing_pole_and_fish:

will do, thx
