Were you playing with a joystick or mouse? Even using 0X tippet I get broke off about 80% of the time on regular mode. I haven't played it on the big fish cheater yet. Maybe I don't want to. :roll:

Steelhead over 40 inches (with the "big cheater" function) seem to really test even the heaviest tackle in the game. I believe a little more tuning of the strength and stamina of the biggest fish is in order. In the next update we'll bring the stamina of the biggest fish down a bit. They'll still rip into the backing on a good run, but they'll wear down a little faster.

Dawg, I'm really impressed you landed a 41 incher! In theory there should be some a few inches longer with "big cheater" enabled, but those will be some serious tackle manglers...

Keep it up!

Wow... That's massive. But yes, they can get just a bit bigger. 47" is the max on the Polis with the big-fish cheat enabled.
