IDK if this should be in bug forum or not but I am sure everyone would agree that when you get the "PERFECT" catch in fishing (meaning you perfectly hit the space bar, you 99% of the time get JUNK. And I mean that I will be in a hotspot and get like 20-25 blue/yellows and then when I land "Perfect" I get a hook or a white fish.

 

Has this happened to anyone else ?

99% of the time outside hotspot.

I think that the fish is determined at the time of biting, not at the time you reel in.  I've have perfect catches of just about everything (well, not that many perfect catches, but old hooks to gold fish).

As someone who used to active fish a lot, I can tell you it is random. It definitely feels like its more often junk when you land a perfect roll, but I have gotten blues and yellows many, many times with perfect roll.

I actually try to FAIL perfect catches and just barely get it close to the end just because "perfect" gives me junk so much. Lol  And I only fish hotspots so I can go an hour with ONLY blue/yellow fish but the second I hit the "perfect" catch I get a jellyfish or a hook.

I've NEVER gone anywhere close to that long while actively fishing without catching something white. Are you sure you aren't afk fishing and have "throw away junk" turned on, then come back to active fish and perfect roll a white? I agree that it feels like perfect rolls give garbage most of the time, but I've personally never gone more than maybe 10 fish without catching something white. Not saying its impossible obviously, with the RNG in the game ANYTHING is possible. I'd be willing to bet someone out there has killed only 2 ogres in his life and got an ogre ring both times...

its working as intended because perfect catch only means you dont have to do the minigame that would normaly come after the first minigame. What you get as catch is still just random!

Then you are not at the hotspot. A small change in angle or position can take you off the hotspot and give you a completely different loot table.

 

There are no hooks or junk caught at a hotspot, period. The only "junk" at such a spot are Silver Keys.

I know what a hotspot is stupid. That's the point of the thread. 0 junk until I hit "perfect" catch then it is junk.

then maybe you just were lucky before...a hotspot even if you activ fishing NEVER gives you junk not while perfect catch nor while you do the minigame.

you need to change your perspective on those silver keys think of them as green fish that only take up one inventory space no matter how many you catch

Totally incorrect.  Perfect does not affect the drop, it just skips the minigame, definitely without a doubt.  I consistently, still, receive all kinds of rarities with "PERFECT"...including yellows, blues, greens..

I've pulled coalecanths with Perfects before.

The perfect just skips the second minigame.

Period.

The perfect score just makes you skip the "Dance Dance Revolution" mini game.

What you caught was already decided.

Odd how I can get 25 blue /yellows and never a hook but when I get a "perfect" I get a hook or jellyfish. Lol. I guess I'll post again on the bug section so it can be seen by experts and not average gamers or trolls.  At least if they could look into it or reply then I will shut up. For now, it's an issue.

Hooks are not possible at hotspots, white fish (such as jellyfish) are possible though.

I don't remember much about fishing last month.... but I'm pretty darned sure that most of the times I accidentally landed the perfect catch, an actual fish would be at the other end and not an empty hook like the last 5 perfect catches I got yesterday in the middle of a very "abundant" location that was otherwise showering me in Gold & Blue fishes
