fishingGuide to ideal temperatures and O2 levels

Thanks to Jase for providing this Rough temperature and O2 guide for all the Fishsim species :

This is only rough and a lot is venue dependent, but it should give an idea.

To use this list, you will need to do the following

  • Locate the species in the list that you wish to target (eg. Pike which has the following Ideal temp/O2 levels 8 / 8)
  • From the tackle setup screen, add the digitherm to your line as close as possible to your hook (it will not spook the fish)
  • Go fishing in your venue and use the digitherm to locate an area of water that has settings as close as possible to the target levels (the closer you are to the required temp/O2 levels will result in a better chance of catching the target species)

Temp and O2 are not the only factors to consider, but by having your bait in water with correct temp and O2 levels will help to get more bites from the target species.
