How Fish Wrangler Works...






Details:
You are allowed to go fishing every 15 minutes. There is a countdown timer in the right-hand corner that will let you know when you fish. Simply click the "Fish Now" button and read your results.

You must be stocked with Chum in order to go fishing. Click the "Store->Chum" tab above and you can purchase different types of chum. You will not always catch a fish every time you go fishing - your chum can be stolen or your chum can fail to attract a fish to your line.

An important part of the game is to expand your Crew, which is done by inviting friends to the application. Your friends (Crew Members) can take you fishing an additional two times an hour.

Earn more points and gold by catching different fish. You will receive a larger reward when you catch rarer fish. The "Fish List" tab gives details on each fish. The fish image will not be displayed until you catch the particular fish.

Your points and gold will increase as you advance in the game. Point totals indicate your overall rank in the game, while gold is the currency in the game. Use your gold to purchase upgraded fishing equipment.

Types of Fishing Trips

There isn't an exact Captain Trip limit for Captains... however it's controlled in a simple way so balance isn't thrown off in the game and some players are given hundreds of extra trips each day. Here are the details...
1) You can only take each apprentice (friend) on one Captain Trip a day. You leave for the Captain Trip when the apprentice (friend) first logs into Fish Wrangler.
2) After each Captain Trip, you're told how many you've been on in that day. For example, 'Took Joe on my 2nd Captain Trip today...'
3) The apprentice always receives 50% of the points and 0% of the gold - because each apprentice only has 1 Captain.
4) The Captain receives 50% of the gold/points from their first 2 Captain Trips of the day, and 25% for the 3rd-10th Captain Trips, and 10% thereafter. It's setup this way so there's a good benefit for having 2 apprentices, and still a good benefit for having more than 2 apprentices.

Example of Captain Trip point/gold limit:
2nd Captain Trip of day: (Caught a rare 1,000pt/gold Ninja Fish)
Took Joe on my 2nd Captain Trip of the day... I caught a 3 oz Ninja Fish - earned 500 points & 500 gold for showing my apprentice something new and my apprentice earned 500 points!

3rd Captain Trip of day: (Caught a rare 1,000pt/gold Ninja Fish )
Took Ismeralda on my 3rd Captain Trip of the day... I caught a 3 oz Ninja Fish - earned 250 points & 250 gold for showing my apprentice something new and my apprentice earned 500 points!

6th Captain Trip of day: (Caught a rare 1,000pt/gold Ninja Fish)
Took Diego on my 6th Captain Trip of the day... I caught a 3 oz Ninja Fish - earned 250 points & 250 gold for showing my apprentice something new and my apprentice earned 500 points!


Captain Trips reset for the day, every night at 3am PDT - not 12am. This is because many things are processed at 12am PDT, and you're still getting the same amount of trips/day.
