    Can they provide proof of this?

    It is because small catch only gives you fishes so that means it has higher chance to get smelts; either regular one or glacier. But then you have to cancel fishing while you are doing mini game (The one that's not small catch)

    Maaaaan...the drop rate of glacier smelts was crap today. >:(

    40 smelts and only 18 glaciers. The hell. :|

    Got a white bear hat today though. -shrugs-

    Do you need to cancel during the mini game? Because I can cancel when I get the message and I don't use up bait. But you'd have to actually pay attention to it and keep casting the line (restart the skill) over and over again.

    Only cuz of stackable prizes+limited bait. I'm bandwagoning the approval train.

    if you don't waste bait even when you get the message then that's when you cancel I guess :)

    Now that it is the weekend I will try manually catching only 'small catch' and see if I get more glacier smelt. I'll report back tomorrow.

    (Also I have three sturgeon in my inventory now. I think I'm going to hold them hostage in a pet forever, for the pain they caused me prior to this event. Biggest one is 233 cm and need 300 cm for 5* :'( )

    Doesnt seem to be a difference between manual and auto fishing when there's a small catch. I seem to get 50/50 on the different kinds of smelts. but it does but the fat, in terms of other fish and the Fish Traps.
    ??? What is that supposed to say?

    And I don't get anywhere near 50/50 with automatic fishing. I'm getting a lot more regular smelt.

    It does cut the fat.* It stops fish traps, and normal fish.
    I fixed it.

    Maybe Im getting bad luck. But manual fishing still hasn't given me more glacier smelt, over normal.

    Sometimes you might get a "small catch" of a lamprey whose size was on the low end of the spectrum, but yeah, if you cancel fishing at any notification that isn't "Small catch" then you'll save your bait for Glacier Smelt or regular Smelt.

    I seem to find like... 40:60 ratio of glacier smelt to regular smelt.

    And the rewards quest's glacier smelt requirements are additive not cumulative, right?
    So 300 glacier smelt altogether for all the prizes?
    This'd be a hard to reach goal if you were fishing without 100% success rate.

    Kinda makes me wish the 10 smelt -> 30 bait quest was infinitely repeatable.

    I agree... I notice a lot of events cut it close for rewards lately.... even the titles for holiday hide & seek... you had to settle for only one title for the most part and do win trades with friends to get them

    i was only able to get 8 G-malts on the 19th ;-;

    they could have easly worked in the infinite bait thing without breaking the evant.
    for example they could make it so the number of malts needed gos up every time. I.E 10 gos to 20. 20 gos to 30 etc and have the number reset every day

    Nah I was previously just trying to finish the fishing collection journal, and the sturgeon remained elusive for 2 - 3 years because it's rare and I have bad luck :'( for the cooking journal I just bought a sturgeon from an NPC to cook. I'm not sure why I'm deciding to keep these ones except for I'm just mad at them :D this bait must be good for them cus I've caught three with it already

    Yes I think it's a little ridiculous how limited the bait is. Remember back in the day when we could just buy event bait from the NPC :'( why do they have to be like this when school is running. I can AFK fish while I'm in class but I can't manual fish and cancel everything that's not a small catch. I'm still really mad about the Christmas event, I spent WAY too much time on it and I was angry the whole time lol. I have a problem with needing homestead items :D

    So we don't need to do manual fishing, we just need to cancel it if it says something other than a small catch.

    Yes. But if we are going to get 300 before event ends anyways, we don't really have to do that unless people are trying to get 300 Glaciers for alts and just quit the event. Since they will be useless once you catch 300 glaciers total...

    That's just too tedious to keep staring at your character for hours, just for a chance to get some more of Glacier Smelt. I afk fished for 3rd day now and i already got 69 (Hah... Good number...) Glacier Smelt.
