This guide was written with the intention to show players how to catch Char on Kuori Lake, to cover bottom fishing and some spinning techniques that might help you to catch Char. But this guide will mainly focus on bottom fishing for Char. Please remember that in our game Fish might change spots and baits. Those spots that I will show you might not work in the future and the same goes to the baits I used. I want to also show you guys the 5 spots where you can successfully catch a Char using a bottom rig with cords and clip info.
Char is the common name for several species of fish of genus Salvelinus of the salmon family (Salmonidae). Approximately 11 Char species occur worldwide. The Char is a lake-dwelling salmonid fish, native to the Alps, Scandinavia, Scotland, and Northern European Russia. Sometimes its forms found in the lakes of Siberia and the Far East are described as separate species. Char mainly lives in lakes, and exceptionally can be found in rivers. In deep waterbodies, the population of char divides into several forms with different diets: small forms feeding on plankton are often light-colored, bigger ones with darker coloring are predatory.
I spend around 12 hrs over 4 days trying 5 different spots on Kupori map. I used 3 feeders (bottom tackle).
Spot no.1 - 120.14 clip 40, cast in the direction of the 10m hole
Spot no.2 - 124.84 clip 40, cast in the direction of the 15m hole
Spot no.3 - 112.93 clip 27, cast in the direction of the 15m hole
Spot no.4 - 89.99 clip 37, cast in the middle between 12m and 3 m holes
Spot no.5 - 69.86 clip 13, cast in the direction of the 4.5m hole
I focused on using only bottom fishing gear: loop rig.
and baitfish rig
Baits And Groundbaits
Groundbait that I wanted to test ( I used lower level skill ingredients on purpose, so lower level players can give it a try as well).
I used the following baits:
Spots I chose to do my research came from my ingame experience and research on the internet. Char likes deeper water especially when the temperature is above 10 °C and this is happening very often on Kuori Lake, so searching for Char in those spots was the best option for me as during my research the temperature at Kuori Lake was between 5 °C during night to 12 °C in day time. When the temperature is lower than 8 °C you can try to look for Char in the more shallow parts of the Kuori Lake.
The most Chars I had on spots 1, 3 and 4.
When using a loop rig most of the Chars I was able to catch when using Mayfly larva - around 70 %, the rest of them I caught on Nightcrawler. I didn't have much luck using a Grasshopper.
The most bites I had in temperatures of 8-11 °C and during hrs of 8-10 am, 12-1 pm amd 18-20 pm. I think temperature is a very important factor here. If the temperature was below 7 °C I was mostly catching Burbots and over 12 °C Breams and other species. For me, Char bit more on Mayfly larva during sunny weather and on nightcrawler during rainy weather.
I would recommend using fluorocarbon leaders bellow 10kg to get a lot of bites and to increase the chance of getting Chars.
Using GB will help you to get better results so try to use it when fishing.
When using baitfish rig the most chars I had were on Roach and Bleak, but Gudgeon and Ruffie are good as well. Please remember that sometimes when using live bait rig and when spinning or jigging you might hook a Pike, but still, I recommend to use fluorocarbon leaders when targeting Chars. Using baitfish rig will bring you more Chars and often another cool species from Kuori Lake, but using loop rig or another bottom fishing rig is worth the try when targeting Char.
Targeting Char with bottom fishing can get you a decent amount of silver and using 2 bottom fishing setups + 1 spinning setup might be the best solution for targeting Char and to earn a good amount of silver.
Average Char keepnet during those 4 days:
If you want to try to get Char on spinning setup, please consider those few lures that worked for me in the past. Lure rig with fluorocarbon leader bellow 10kg:
Jigging rig with fluorocarbon leader bellow 10kg:
Char are a fun fish to catch. They give the player a good challenge both for bottom fishing as well as for spinning. I hope this guide helps you in targeting these fish.
Good luck and have fun guys. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to post them below (but not in game please). Thanks, Levo!
