I’ve already restarted to game, relogged without restarting the game and used other hotspots but it’s still the same outcome that you can see in the video.

(And yes, i’ve actually tried fishing in the hotspots, not like i did in the video)

Same issue as here Fishing Hotspot *hit* isn't shown - #7 by radox71 , the thread came up as i was writing mine

Same issue as above. Casts dont register in the legit “hotspot” when fish are active and jumping.


Same. Also, my character is still not discovering secret and broad hotspots despite having dozens unlocked and only half that on my map.
It’s 3 weeks after release and I still can’t venture to a hotspot and fish in it.

same, hot spots broken for me too

For me, it seams that I get more rare, even when I dont get the “in the hotspot”. I thought this was just cause my fishing level increased and I dont need to know that I’m on a hotspot, cause I seen it 50,000 times before. Seamed cleaner, but less informative. I thought it was working…but could be wrong. Maybe it was because I finished the fishing quests and got better gear to fish with. IMO/TLDR = BROKEN

The Hotspot still work. The notification that you are in it was removed. Not sure if it’s intentional change or a bug
