Wondering what kinds of fishes you can get from SocioTown’s waters? How about the basics of fishing? Check the rest of this article to see images and tips on how to catch these freshwater critters!

Introducing SocioTown Boating

Monday, September 14th, 2009

You’ve already seen a preview of fishing in the new regions. But that’s not all that’s new! In the new regions there will also be boats!

Boats will offer several benefits.  For example, certain areas will only be accessible by boat. Without a boat you won’t be able to reach those areas. Also, with a boat you can go fishing farther out into the water and get deep sea fish.

Hope you enjoyed the preview. The new regions are right around the corner!

SocioTown Fishing - Adding Bait

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

As promised, here is more info on fishing which will be arriving soon in SocioTown. Today I’ll be going over bait.

Fishing in SocioTown will be more complex compared to bug catching. For those who are concerned,  don’t worry it’s a good thing since it will add quite a bit of depth, which will hopefully keep you entertained for awhile.

One major component of fishing is adding bait to your fishing rod. If you look up at the screen shot, you’ll see an “Add Bait” button. If you click it, it will bring up the following new item popup.

Here you can choose any insect to add as bait. Different types of insects attract certain kinds of fish. So it makes a difference what kind of bait you choose.

This time, I chose the Honey Bee as bait.

So even with the new fishing feature, bug catching is still very important. New insects will also be appearing in the new regions, so don’t throw away your bug nets juet yet! It’s important to get the right bait for the particular fish you’re trying to catch.  Certain rare fish may only be attracted to certain rare bugs…

In my next blog post, I’ll go over casting and the actual fishing.

Stay tuned!

The screen shot is from the new region River Forest, which is an adjacent region to River Creek.

Over the next several days I’ll be releasing screen shots and info on the new fishing feature. It will basically be a How-To guide on fishing in SocioTown.
