Simple, Basic Guide and Tips for Fishing with new dockyard boats/ships. * Sorry the dream ended *

*** It was a good dream while it lasted ***

Since the whole concept of fishing is gonna change tomorrow, I temporarily at least removed this guide, to avoid misleading information. We had our fun together everyone but most of us did expect this dream to end someday even from the start anyway, still a sad day it is though.
The only Suggestion I have for now for everyone is, Sell all deep sea fish and chum you have before tomorrow's update, But only at your own risk, don't blame me if gold mystery boxes appeared in sea market tomorrow, I personally sold all mine at least anyway.

What happens next?
Depending on whether I like or not like the new fishing system after tomorrow's update, I may try to make a new guide but I wouldn't count much on it, since I'm already low on motivation due to big nerf tomorrow. But we'll have to wait and see. No other choice anyway hehe.

Finally, Thanks to everyone who helped me in creating the previous guide, and alas GGS didn't let it remain useful for too long!

    Small correction to add - "Time saved" when traveling affects both outbound and inbound legs of travel.

    So, in your example of a boat with 5h42m total trip (travel+fishing) with 39m time savings  (30m base + 9m added), your total trip time becomes 4h24m not 5h3m.

    Nice work @Griffith (INT1)

    I would be happy to post a link of your guide on my website for you and I always give credit where credit is due. I will copy and paste your guide onto a page of it's own for others to look over.

    Many of the people who play Big Farm also work a full time job and they and they just don't have the hours to put into learning the mechanics of these new updates. Every little bit of information that we can get out there will help the community grow.

    edit to fix bad spelling and grammar :)
    Thanks, and yea too many bad spelling and grammar mistakes in it I know, but do me the favor and give this guide to your team so they edit and complete it, since it lacks still explanation of many other aspects which I omitted to avoid confusions and avoid making the guide too long ( such as explaning more about crew.items, and how if they not for the specific boat, their effectiveness reduces to 1/2, or many other small things like that, which would make this guide more confusing only but can be good in have separate pages or different sections in your website)

    P.S. love you website btw, it has helped me alot since I have came back to bigfarm too, thanks :)

  • Is it better to make chum and then sell it or sell fish?
    Don't know is it worth using chum on boat, cause it give 15-25% much fish, maybe when we have upgraded boats.
  • Terrific bit of work, thank you  Griffith  :)
     On the subject of chum, do not make "oyster chum" it loses you a fortune , but the standard chum, with blue fish on top, is cheapest made with oysters . There is a useful tip from Wascally Wabbit  about which chum works with which fish in the Mods section .

    Thanks for kind words :)
    Personally I don't agree with making chum with oysters though well not yet maybe at least.
    the reason for which I say this is because, even catching "oyster, shrimp, clam" is a strategic mistake, if there exists other pools with better fishes first.
    ofc if one have some extra oysters remaining in inventory from doing hardwork event or such, or if one be so active with good ships that can make all pools empty till nothing else appears or remains other than oyster,clam and shrimp, then yes that can be a good use of oysters. but keep in mind that "catching oysters" itself, is an opportunity cost, or can be even a mistake, if there be other better fishes like Tuna, Herring, Cod, Salmon, or Swordfish or Lobster still remaining to catch.

    also the difference between the profit from making normal chum with swordfish vs the profit from making normal chum with oysters make it not worth to go catch oyster instead of swordfish, just for the purpose of turning them it into normal chum. and you pay another price called "time-wasted" by making chum from oysters, instead of making them from swordfish.
    here are the calculations:

    2 oysters make 1 normal chum, profit per/chum will be:
    12000 - (2 * 4687) - production cost = 2626 - production cost
    profit made in 1 hour (lvl 1 dockyard) = 2626 - production cost = ~ 2500 dollars

    vs

    1 swordfish make 5 chum, profit per/chum will be:
    12000 - (1/5 * 47188) - (1/5 * production cost) = 2562.4 - (1/5 * production cost)
    profit made in 1 hour (lvl 1 dockyard) = 5 x 2562.4 - production cost = ~ 12500 dollars

    so by making normal chum from oysters you are actually losing ~10k more profit that could make per hour (lvl 1 dockyard) if you would instead use swordfish, specially if you are an active online player this is important.

  • 1- Buy 3 "James" from Fish/per hour crew items, and 3 x Thermic box from capacity increase items, and add all 6 to your Norfolk Wherry level 1.

    Norfolk 1 lvl has  capacity 25, fishing time 1h, and 3 fish/hour. With 3x James you have  21 f/h, so even 1x Thermic box is not needed :)  You can even buy  5x  James and just 1 Thermic Box.

    I suggest you to re-read Tip No. 4 in main tips, if you have the time ofc, and then the Important Note under the "Fishing for lazy ppl" guide part 2.
    with 5 x james and 1 Thermic box on Norfolk Wherry lvl 1, you will have 37 capacity and 33 fish/hour rate, and with that rate you can catch 33 x 3 = 99 fishes in 3 type of fish pools (like swordfish, cod and salmon pools) so you are basically over-buying james for no reason. while you could instead buy 2 more thermic box to catch ~60 fish total, instead of 37 fish, in the same amount of time.

    btw just as another friendly tip, the way that you suggested, meaning 5 James + 1 Thermic box with lvl 1 norfolk wherry, is instead indeed a good choice "only" when fishing "Lobster" or other pools if and only if they have only "1 type of fish remaining in them"

    But when you fish normally and not for any specific fish in pools that have more than 1 type of fish, say for example a pool that has both Tuna and Herring, then your boat's "default fish caught per hour rate" and also "Fish per hour crew" that you add too with it too, will it affects Both ( or in 3 type of fish pools, it affects all 3 types), so if for example you fish with "4 fish per hour rate" in that pool, you will not get total 4 fish per hour, you will get 4 Tuna and 4 Herring per hour, meaning total 8 fish in 1 hour. so keep this in mind and plan your capacity and fish rate and fishing time more wisely for most profit.

    Hmm I see where I was made a mistake, sorry :)  I thought that  fish  are just distributed evenly,  I mean  6 fish per hour, with poll with 3 species, will be 2 pieces of each, OR 6 pieces of one if you take special equipment... What is sense this special equipment in this case, if it's  giving you  2-3x  less fish?


    EDIT: BTW can I translate your art  to  Polish  and  paste it to our forum (with link to original of course)?

    The original explanation here is incorrect.  

    If you have a fish rate of  X/hr and send to a fishing pool with more than one type of fish, your catch per hour will be divided among the different types of fish unless you equip for specific type(s) of fish.

    Example:  A boat sent to a pool with Swordfish, Salmon, & Cod, for 1 hour of fishing time, with a fish/hour rate of 45 will catch 15 Swordfish, 15 Salmon & 15 Cod,  not 45 of each fish.

    Well it may get a bit complicated so bear with me on this:
    basically it is ggs fault maybe for not calling it "Fish/per hour/per type" that means if you have 2 fish/per hour rate, if the pool only has 1 type of fish, then you get 2 fish (per hour), but if the pool has 2 types for example then you get 2 of each type, meaning total 4 fish in same time(per hour). so I can understand why that confused u, as it did confuse me at first too, and that's why I added it as a very important tip in tips section here.
    now to answer your second question, well to be honest there's not much point in using "special equipments" as of yet imo either (same as with protection items) not until you have big boats with high level upgrades at least, but in some certain cases they can still be useful, I will make 2 examples:

    1- for hardworker event: while using special equipments as you mentioned too, actually does not change much profit in most cases and can actually cause the opposite instead, but in Hardworker event for example using them can be handy. for example if you wanna catch alot of swordfish in only a limited time, since the capacity and number of boats that can be assigned to pools is limited, then instead of distributing your capacity to all 3 types for example (cod + salmon + swordfish), you can use the swordfish special equipment instead. well ofcourse for small boats with low level upgrades, this still doesnt make much difference in the outcome, since the number of "slots" for tools and crew is very limited, and one can simply use more capacity instead of using special equipment, but in high level big boats like imagine a level 6 Trawler for example, sacrificing only 1 slot (out of many) for the special equipment, can be a better choice sometimes than even using just 1 more capacity item. (imagine capturing 100 swordfish, vs 116 total fish (38 of each swordfish+ cod + salmon) for example), so in that case not only you can get a much better result in the limited time for the Hardworker event, but also actually you can make even more profit than if you would catch all types.

    2- another use for special equipments as of now at least, is for shortest distance pools least profitable pools. imagine you have already sent most of your ships and maximized the most profitable pools already with them, but still have a few ships sitting idle and there is no other pool than just the crappy "oyster, shrimp, clam" pools. well to me at least shrimps and clams, generally are like a shame to fishermanery (  :p ), while oyster (considering the short time of it, and its bearable selling price at least) can still be a good catch as an extra profit sometimes. so in this case too for example, sacrificing 1 tool slot for special oyster tool, can actually make the profit-results some better than using 1 more capacity item. (this also will make more sense with higher upgraded smallest boats(or even big boats too) ofc, example with a level 6 motorboat or level 6 Runabout, you can catch many oysters very fast with them this way and make some medium/decent extra profit too).

    I hope this wasn't too complicated, if it was, ignore special equipments and hate them for now at least till you upgrade your boats and get bigger boats :smile:

    The original explanation here is incorrect.  

    If you have a fish rate of  X/hr and send to a fishing pool with more than one type of fish, your catch per hour will be divided among the different types of fish unless you equip for specific type(s) of fish.

    Example:  A boat sent to a pool with Swordfish, Salmon, & Cod, for 1 hour of fishing time, with a fish/hour rate of 45 will catch 15 Swordfish, 15 Salmon & 15 Cod,  not 45 of each fish.
    No Lylu, A boat sent to a pool with Swordfish, Salmon, & Cod, for 1 hour of fishing time, with a fish/hour rate of 45 will actually catch 45 Swordfish, 45 Salmon & 45 Cod,  not 15 of each fish. refer to Tip No.4 n main guide please.
    (also keep in mind this is only as long as you have enough capacity ofc, if you have less capacity than 135 (=45 * 3) then it will evenly distribute the fishes according to your capacity, for example if have 100 capacity, it will give you like ~33 of each type instead)
    (this is tested and confirmed btw, and unless it be a not intended mistake by ggs, it works that way for now at least)

    Better test again @Griffith (INT1)  I just sent wherry's twice to a three item pool, and the both times, the pool indicates the harvest will be spread evenly among the fish.

    I will post screenshots if I'm able when the boats return.  I will also continue to test, because this is a very important point with regard to planning, equipping and profitability.
  • Thank you both for your work on this. I await the outcome with bated breath.

    Lylu "the harvest will be spread evenly among the fish" is correct, as I said you are overusing fish rate instead, so if you have had even more capacity you would get even more fish with even less fish rate. please read what i explained again:

    ***(also keep in mind this is only as long as you have enough capacity ofc, if you have less capacity than 135 (=45 * 3) then it will evenly distribute the fishes according to your capacity, for example if have 100 capacity, it will give you like ~33 of each type instead)***

    the reason you are getting 15 of each is because your capacity is 45, not because 45 fish/per hour rate is being distributed 15 to each. if you have more capacity instead with lesser fish rate even, you will get a better/more profitable result.

    P.S.1 ( even though I was certainly sure after many tests i did before but still out of respect) I just sent a motorboat with 11 fish/per hour rate and 23 capacity to a shrimp/clam/oyster pool, we will see the result in 26mins. (basically if it be as you said, I should get only ~3 or 4 of each type since 11/3 =~3 or 4 and total ~11 only, but I will show you that I will get full 23 capacity fish instead (distributed evenly between 3 types = ~8 of each = 11 * 0.7(42minutes fishing time)) this way, with only 11 fish/per hour rate)

    and yes ofcourse it is very important that's why i mentioned it this way in Tip No. 4:
    ***4- This tip is very important and can make big difference in the profits that you can make:
    When you fish for a certain type of fish, say for example swordfish ( by using Bent trolling rod- specific fish equipment for swordfish for example) then your boat's "default fish caught per hour rate" and also "Fish per hour crew" that you add too with it too, will simply affect the number of swordfish caught per hour.
    But when you fish normally and not for any specific fish in pools that have more than 1 type of fish, say for example a pool that has both Tuna and Herring, then your boat's "default fish caught per hour rate" and also "Fish per hour crew" that you add too with it too, will it affects Both ( or in 3 type of fish pools, it affects all 3 types), so if for example you fish with "4 fish per hour rate" in that pool, you will not get total 4 fish per hour, you will get 4 Tuna and 4 Herring per hour, meaning total 8 fish in 1 hour. so keep this in mind and plan your capacity and fish rate and fishing time more wisely for most profit.***

    No, Griffith is right, I was checked this before agreed ;)  I was sent Norfolk  how he said.  It should be  21  fish  total.


    But there is 60. Griffith is right, we were wrong  ;)


    And before/after from fishing pool, as another proof:



    BTW Griffith I think tip no.3 is bit of confusing because is suggesting that  fish/hour are didived among fish types :P

    I ran another test and am in full backpedal now on my comments.

    YES - @Griffith (INT1) is CORRECT.  I was wrong, fish rate per hour is NOT divided among the types of fish in a pool, but rather applied to all types of fish in the pool as Griffith originally stated.

    (as side note - you were right G, it was the boat capacity that skewed my results and made the appearance of division)

    well it is not about being wrong or right, honestly I appreciate all the feedback, even if the system be as I said now, there was still a possibility of ggs changing it maybe even today or like half an hour ago(same as how some viking farm steps have actually changed and has become easier now, while still most guides are not updated about it), so that's why I also ran another test just to re-test again as you mentioned too but it still confirmed the old results, so fish/ per hour rate affects all types separately still, let's not panic about it (yea i was honestly shocked when i first noticed it too, since it can majorly increase profit) and make lots of dollars :p

     What is sense this special equipment in this case, if it's  giving you  2-3x  less fish?

    I see these as a way to select how your boat capacity is used. You are "sacrificing" more fish for a certain type of fish.  (important for the FHW event and maybe for profitability also (more number crunching needed to determine this still)) 

    Example - 10 fish/hr, 5 hour fishing, 48 capacity, three item pool
    1-sent without specialization returns with 16 of each fish but not efficient because could have brought 50 of each fish if capacity was higher
    2-sent with 1 type specialization returns with 48 of that type only.

    @Lylu (INT1)  @Griffith (INT1)   My compliments to you both  (and also my thanks)  for this curteous, well-mannered investigation. A magnificent example of the scientific method in action. 

    Thanks you are very kind, but honestly though, someone should go tell ppl to update "Viking farm" guides too, some steps of it as i played this month has changed (become easier) compared to what they were before and compared to what still exists on most spreadsheets and help sites guides.

    Uhmm not so much.  Honestly,  that's because of this point I was thinking  fish/hour are divided  per numer of species :P  If  you  specifically  write that there is no dividing, this will be more clear and not misleading :)  Because you know "dividing" and "distributing"... :P  

    I suggest to re-write 3 and 4 point to something simple like:

    3. Given fish/hour rates are per fish type - that mean you should multiply this by number of fish species in your fishing pool. This apply both to default fishing rate of your boats, and to bonus fishing rate from assigned crew.

    Example: if you have fishing time 1 hour, 5 fish per hour, and you will go to pool with Tunas and Herrings, you will end up with 10 fish (5 Tuna and 5 Herrings) instead of 5 (so you need Capacity 10, not 5!). Of course there must be required amount of fish - if there will be 10 Tuna and only 3 Herrings, you will catch 5 Tuna and only 3 Herrings. So plan your Capacity accordingly! 

    4. Fish-type items (lobster cages, trolling rods etc.) are useful only when you need specific fish type but you have problem with Capacity. These items  are making all your  "prey" will be of  one type, and  your Capacity won't waste for  "not-that-precious-at-the-moment" species.

    Example: if you have fishing time 5 hours, fishing rate 10 fish/hour, this will give you 50 fish of each type in fishing pool. If there are 3 types in pool, there is need of Capacity 150 to don't waste any fish. But what if you want just swordfish (for profit or HWE for example), and your max Capacity is only 40? You will get just ~40 fish, and there will be same amount of each fish type from pool, so not great deal... But if you use trolling rod,  you will  get 40 Swordfish (instead of only 13) but no fish of other type. 

    :) 


    BTW:  I have few questions, are you know answers?

    1. How exactly chums are working? There is bonus to the  "final" amount of fish caught ? Or they  make more fish in pool? For example  if there is only 10 swordfish in the pool, and  you will use chum +10%, do you can catch  11 of them instead of 10?

    2. How exactly dangers (sharks etc.)  are working?  What are these percents? This is percentage chance of "attack"?  Or chance of attack is "who knows?" and these percentages are for  amount of lost fish (for example "Sharks 10%" means "in case of shark attack you will lose 10% of your fish")?

    YES - @Griffith (INT1) is CORRECT.  I was wrong, fish rate per hour is NOT divided among the types of fish in a pool, but rather applied to all types of fish in the pool as Griffith originally stated.

    (as side note - you were right G, it was the boat capacity that skewed my results and made the appearance of division)


    well it is not about being wrong or right, honestly I appreciate all the feedback, even if the system be as I said now, there was still a possibility of ggs changing it maybe even today or like half an hour ago(same as how some viking farm steps have actually changed and has become easier now, while still most guides are not updated about it), so that's why I also ran another test just to re-test again as you mentioned too but it still confirmed the old results, so fish/ per hour rate affects all types separately still, let's not panic about it (yea i was honestly shocked when i first noticed it too, since it can majorly increase profit) and make lots of dollars :p


    wow this is a huge tip. I have been fishing wrong the whole time thinking that rate fish / hour was for the total. To think of all the wasted fishermen :P :P!
