    ... and in the next 6 casts I caught 3 great barracuda.

    It made me giggle, so I thought I'd share the moment.

    You should have watched your line a little closer. See, you were catching stone fish, but the barracuda came along and snapped them up.

    I used up the full can, 88 charges. In all I caught 8 great barrcuda 0 stonefish. I think next time I go through to Papua I'll try fishing with great barracuda bait :D

    [edit]
    *falls about laughing*

    You're never going to believe this, I just this minute caught a 51 stone Stone Fish - with a rod baited to attract a great barracuda![/edit]

    Perhaps this could be explained looking at the code ?

    Like a bug that somehow inverted Great Barracuda and Stone Fish on baits ?

    We "think" we are applying a bait for a Stone Fish but infact, the game is applying one for Great Barracuda and vice versa..... Who knows..... Only looking at the code can say it for sure.

    No popps, I think it was just the RNG messing with me. I also caught yet another great barracuda shortly after.
