Game Updates

On February 15 we released our biggest update yet to Bassmaster Fishing 2022. This update provided a number of improvements and fixes to the game, plus the addition of beards, and the ability to change both your beard colour and hair colour.
Here are a few of the highlights from that update:
  • Mastery – We are trialling a possible fix for Mastery Challenges not tracking or completing. We recommend all players to log out of Dovetail Live via the settings menu, re-launch the game and log back in. if you continue to experience any issues with Mastery, please let us know HERE.
  • Fish – When fishing in areas where the water is 60+ feet deep fish are now able to see lures from a greater distance and will now more actively pursue lures that are within their line of sight.
  • Fish - We have improved the fish behavior to prevent very large groups of fish from congregating at specific POIs, you will still likely find fish at these POIs but fish will now be more active throughout the session and will move around venues.
  • BEARDS – A selection of beards are now available for players to use in game
  • Hair – You are now able to change the colour of your angler’s hair and beard
  • Audio – Improvements to audio when fish leap or break the surface of the water during fish fights
  • Menu – An issue causing the game to crash when navigating to the boat selection screen has now been resolved
  • Loadouts – An issue preventing players from being able to make changes/create new loadouts while fishing on a venue has been resolved
  • UI – An issue that was causing players to have a loss of their UI after catching a fish has been resolved
