I don't see this having been posted in the bugs forum; would be great to get a response (@CM_Jouska @GM_Dew) as to whether this is a known issue and/or if there are any suggested fixes:

Multiple users have reported harpoon fishing working correctly, however many (myself included) have observed that they are able to start and complete the harpoon mini game, but are receiving no loot. The 'Success' message pops up, accompanied by the EXP+ combat text above the character, but no notification of the type of fish caught or loot window appear. Edit: Durability does decrease on the harpoon as well.

Possibly related: In open sea, it is hard/impossible to find 'deep' water. I am able to get the minimap icon to display it if I jump overboard and dive slightly beneath the surface, but not otherwise. When piloting a fishing boat, the 'shallow' water icon is shown, however when leaving the helm to commence fishing the terrain icon changes to either 'mid air' or 'rough terrain'. On certain areas of the boat, it is possible to get the 'shallow' icon to display by unequipping the fishing tool (harpoon) and doing a standing jump, however this does not seem to affect the outcome of the harpoon fishing mini game.

I'm not sure I can post and screenshots that would aid in troubleshooting, but can do it it will help.

I have read about others who have experienced this bug with no window popping up on a success while harpooning so no indication of fish or unable to loot them although I don;t have this issue myself.

Possibly the second point is related to the known bug related to collision not working correctly on the fishing boat as indicated in this thread with a CM response acknowledging this problem and also confirming it should be fixed in the next patch. But that was before the latest big patch (not 880MB download) ans it is still the same problem.

It can be seen in-game where previously you could stand on the wheel to avoid being shot off the boat, since the 22 June patch it is not possible as collision of this and the main mast and possibly other elements of the boat has collision off.

This causes the problem when taking control of your boat say in Velia wharf and the camera becoming buried inside all the boats and hard to steer out etc.

I had the icon showing mid-air before that patch and no sea as it should be. I think it is when the character gets glitched on the boat items and twitched for a while and fishing so it is not registering you are standing correctly/ repositioning and nearer the centre of the boat usually resolve it but not always.

No idea if this is related to the no window problem but it is a problem and needs addressing, as do both these issues.

Just to note I am using a Nvidia graphics card if that makes any difference for the missing window.

Seems to be fixed after trying just about everything under the Sun...

One mystery remains; what is this weird light that was bouncing all over the place when I moved (even when I had no equipment, costumes, pets, anything at all on):

I have the same problem, but how did you "fix" it?  Please explain.

I tried relogging, moving to different areas in the same 'sea' region and the neighboring one, I unequipped all equipment, accessories, costumes for my character and for my fishing boat, and checked in all pets. I switched channel (not just to a different 'region' name but also to the different numbered channel), tried fishing with a regular fishing rod. I also tried to force a file verification by deleting version.dat from the game file and opening the launcher - which also caused today's patch (whether it was just a preload or otherwise) to download. Then I jumped 23 times and sacrificed a Mansha to our lord and saviour Cthulhu whilst singing the Star Spangled Banner. Unfortunately I don't know exactly which step (if it wasn't just random coincidence) resolved the issue, but I was pretty relieved after scratching my head for the entire night and almost giving up (at the cost of not sleeping at all...).

I also am having the same issue, of winning the mini game, yet no loot, over and over again. When I asked about this in chat, a few others responded that they too had the same issue, but give up. so please help us get it fixed!

I added a screenshot in hopes of showing location of my issue.

Thank you

On the one hand I´m glad that this "no loot window appears" is a thing that happens to some more people and not only me and on the other hand I´m really disappointed that this bug exist AND seems to do not get any attention by Publisher or Devteam. Please help all further fishers and make them aware of the bug so that we find a solution for this wiered thing.

Same here.

Takes away a big point of the whole feature. 

So publishers...  Are we just pretending it's raining like usual?

getting this issue today.

 

I just left my boat at the harpooning hotspot and swam to the nearest shore and climbed up a rock.  Logged out of the game completely and I am logging back in now (tried a "/reloadui" first, no change).

in boat=mid air

on prow=rough terrain

jump in the water=deep sea (while underwater)

swimming=shallow water

 

log in almost complete...

spawned same spot, same channel, rough terrain on the rock, swamp out, still shallow water, climbed on boat, still shallow water until I move.  after I move once on the boat, it goes back to the same (mid air)

3 screenshots, one of fishing, one of harpooning.  I'd like to also note, I caught a rio medal, but no fish on one attempt and I am not increasing in EXP even though the floating text appears.  The last one shows me getting a rio medal and no fish (i had to reduce the size of this to upload it here)
