Has anyone worked out how these work yet? I only ask cos I put Holy Mackeral bait on my rod just now and pulled up a Yellowtail Barracuda ...

They seem to work so long as you're in the proper location for catching the named fish (it increases the chance of them appearing by an undeterminable amount). You also seem to need to rebait after each cast.

It would be nice to get some sort of tag that shows an item has been baited rather than have it be invisible.. it can be confusing.

Aha, that makes sense. And yes, I agree about the tag of some kind. A use disappeared off the bait pot, but there was no indication as to where it'd actually gone to.

I *think* the bait stays on for a while, I just caught a holy mackeral and it wasn't with the same cast as I applied the bait.
It would be nice to be able to see if your hook is still baited or not.

1. be in the right location
2. double click the bait
3. target the rod

I guess so; I haven't actually had time today to try it out properly! (see my FB for details :p)

If you're inclined to give it a go, Petra has posted some big fish locations, and there's a pile of different baits in the hold of my ship; feel free to help yourself :)

It is worth noting that using a bait cup and targeting another cup of the same bait type will combine the two.

Ooer. Will it work if you do that? As in, will you have a better chance of catching both those fish?

I said two baits of the same type... in a bit of a more roundabout fashion, but still...
