I’m having the same issue, I can do every part of fishing fine except reel it in. I can hold the fish in spot but cannot reel it in.


Still having same issue cannot fish at any water spot or fishing hole… when is this bug going to be addressed as I’m hearing several in game that also have same issue. Why does it affect some and not others?

Are you guys using the event fishing rod or the event fishing rod skins?

Have used both the rod by itself and then later with a skin.

The event fishing rod and the event skins are bugged right now. There’s a few other threads, but the best fix right now is to use another skin or fishing rod.
