    When taking 10 smelt to Jan for the daily quest, you have to choose the conversation option and talk to him. (It says I've timed out and to retry, so hopefully this won't duplicate a post.)

    I only caught 8 glacier smelts with that entire stack of bait. How are you supposed to get more or do I really have to wait until Saturday hot time?

    Ok a little confused, Jan took smelt, not glacier smelts, which I brought twenty to Jan. The post above says Glacier smelts, so is there any purpose for the glacier smelt? or are they just a red herring? Just curious because above it says "Bring Jan some Glacier Smelts to receive rewards depending on the amount you bring him. Please be aware the Phishy Phobia in Physis quest must be in progress to receive the rewards." We could use some clarification. Thank you.

    The regular smelts are for the daily quest so you can get 30 more bait. The glacier smelts are for the other quest Phishy Phobia in Physis, it isn't a daily quest and thats what the rewards are for on the bottom of the announcement. I hope I made sense if not I'm sorry ><

    If you talk to the guy, he tells you to use Land Maker.

    I'm bad at math so correct me if I'm wrong but I think we get 3,150 bait if we log in every day and do the daily with regular smelts:

    Between Jan. 18 - Feb. 7 there's 15 weekdays and 6 days of the weekends
    (100 a day from log in x 21 days) + (30 a day from daily quest x 21 days) + (70 from hot day x 6 days of weekend) = 3,150 bait

    If we get like 15 glacier smelt from 130 bait AFK fishing at r1 that's gonna be around 360 glacier smelts:

    15/130 = 0.115 chance of glacier smelt per bait
    0.115 chance * 3,150 bait = 363.46 glacier smelts

    Since we need 300 smelts for the chair its cutting it a little closer than I'd like. I'm still testing how much canceling everything but 'a small catch' boosts glacier smelt haul

    So do glacier smelt count as fish, or as items?

    Fish
    You can just manual fish for "its a small catch... What should i do?"
    to do that just cancel the skill when the text says anything other than its a small catch

    I did miss stopping the skill when I caught an item several times due to not paying attention and wasted some bait but,

    With a regular fishing rod and 93 small fish catches I got 35 glacier smelt and 58 regular smelts. So that's a 32.55% event fish rate out of small catches. Tho there may have been a couple of lamprey in there.

    But I got enough for the ice fishing rod cus I already had like 12 from yesterday. With my remaining bait and the ice rod I got 16 glacier smelts and 22 regular smelts, and a couple lampreys and a sturgeon or two. So that's in the vicinity of 42% event fish. So either the ice rod does help a bit or chance can just can fluctuate a lot, I'll see more tomorrow

    not sure if the Ice Fishing Rod increases chances for catching glacier smelt fish or not. I caught 13 glacier smelts with with about 60 bait afk fishing with the Ice Fishing Rod. also even though the Ice Fishing Rod says it needs special bait feeder to catch fish in the description it still appears to work fine with a normal tin of bait.
