FHWE strategy.

Fallen (INT1)Fallen (INT1) INT1 Posts: 400
This is the strategy I use and so far earn 2 GML's with every FHWE and have only bought 1 trawler. Even if you are in the lower league it works and you can win the skipjacks, trawlers (which helps build your fleet at no cash cost) and as your fleet grows the GML's too.
Background:
The FHWE has become a hit and miss event with no notice given any more. It does seem that they have linked the FHWE with a VF but still no notice.
Solution:
24 hours before any current event ends start planning your FHWE, should it not start then simply harvest your catch and move on.
Boat preparation:
As per above get ready for herring. You only need 333 herring to hit the bonus point and you will have enough time to then  plan for the next two baskets.
Bonus point minimum requirements (Italics means they run for a long time):
Oysters: 398
Shrimp: 496
Clams: 398
Herring: 333
Tuna: 224
Lobster: 784
Cod: 239:
Salmon: 239
Swordfish: 271
Handy hints:
1. Download, save and this spreadsheet: Download (Use it to plan your catch) Instructions
2. Have a team member to boost your boats with ghost rods.
3. Do not be shy to skip a basket if it means you will have points running at a higher level. Basket skipping increases in gold price so keep an eye on the skipping. (A GML gets you 2000 gold so you have a spending budget)
4. Use specific equipment to only catch a certain fish species, e.g. Herring only (Ignore lobster baskets)
5. Do not over-fish a fish type unless it is for overnight or if you will be away from your game. It is better to harvest the minimum amount and then move on.
6. Once your 2nd & 3rd baskets are ready it is a good idea to skip the herring in order to add the extra bonus points from these baskets.

Should anyone be able to add to this or improve/correct please do so. Thanks.
EDIT: Added point 6.

    The other way is dooing the next. Start when you have the trawlers max level. 36 hours before the c-c ends saving up the herring and use that herring-net. You will fill up your boats to max 275 herring caught. SAve those herring boats up. When the FHWE starts and you have 5 or 6 max loaded trawlers with herring and unload them. You will have the +1 / second = 11 p/second running for 24 hours. KEEP on fishing for herring and you get the GML very easy when you let it run untill the end. No Gold,No sparkles needed and NO STRESSSS

    Using the strategy above and only spending 100 gold this is the result and a top 50 finish once I upgrade all my trawlers to L6:
