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


Beginner Questions


Poles & Leveling


Quests

Earl's wife, BetsyLou, needs help in preparing dishes for her restaurant, Sand Bar & Gill, located in Waterport. Each fishing pole has an assortment of signature dishes that require particular fresh fish from the local waters.

Compete in a quest either individually or with a friend. After catching all the dish requirements, wranglers must visit BetsyLou at the Sand Bar & Gill.

How Quests Work:
  • Quests can be completed individually or with a friend. Only one quest can be activated at a time. Completion of preceding quests will unlock additional quests.
  • Each quest requires a particular pole, so you must fish with this pole in order to have the fish count towards the dish.
  • You can catch required quest fish via crew trips, deckhand trips and individual trips. Please note that captain trips, tournament trips and night fishing does NOT count towards quests. NOTE: Night fishing catches do not count because the current night fishing system has various technical limitations as it calculates/saves thousands of fish catches per second.
  • There are no time restrictions. Quests are timed for leaderboard purposes only. The clock begins when the quest starts, and ends when the dish is dropped off at BetsyLou's 'Sand Bar & Gill' in Waterport.
  • You can compete in the same quest multiple times.
  • If you invite a friend to a quest, the invitation remains active for 24 hours. You will be unable to invite another friend to your quest until the invitation expires or your friend rejects the invite.
  • If competing with a friend, dish requirements will be multiplied by 1.5 (rounded down).


How Do I Quit/Leave A Quest?
After creating a quest, the quest leader (Player 1) must wait two hours before deleting the quest. The invited user (Player 2) can leave the quest at any point; however, this action will remove any fish contributions Player 2 accumulated towards the quest. Player 1 must complete the quest individually, and the dish requirements will be reduced (from 1.5x to 1.0x).

Finishing A Quest/Leaderboards
After catching all the fish requirements, you must visit the Sand Bar & Gill by traveling to Waterport. BetsyLou will reward each wrangler with the dish. You will receive a special Trophy Dish after completing the entire quest set. Please note that after completing most quests you will unlock an augment for a pole, you cannot buy the augment until your pole reaches a level 50.
