Hints And Tips


  • If you are at buoy A, and do not cast the allowed casts at that buoy before leaving to fish at another buoy, you will automatically be "spooked" at the first buoy and will not be able to fish there for 24 hours.
  • 10x multiplier events allow 15 casts per fisher, regardless of what rod they use.
  • XP determines how much profit you make. The higher your over-all XP, the better your odds of catching higher value fish more often.
  • Rank determines your standings within the fishing community - the only factor it contributes to your earnings is the rank bonus. The rank bonus only applies if you are using a Pro rod or better.
  • Rank can be lost. For example; if you start fishing less than those in ranks around you they could pass you. XP can not be lost in this manner .
  • Upgrading rods can only be done from same rod type to same rod type. For example; from a Deluxe rod to a Deluxe rod Extended version. To get an updated rod at the discounted rate, you must submit a ticket request at our helpdesk requesting it. The upgrade cost is the difference between the cost of the two rods.
  • Transferring your rod to another avatar will break the scripts in your rod and cannot be fixed.
  • Goldtokens will only guarantee you profit if you are using the small green worms. Being a beginner with low XP and fishing 1x buoys will not affect the guarantee of profit if you average your casts over 100 casts and subtract all lottery worms won from your costs.
  • Enabling the ability to save local chat logs in your preference window will allow staff to help you much more easily should you have errors or lost items.
  • Our ATM system of payment is as follows - your fishing earnings go to your Goldtokens account and are viewable with each cast. You must withdraw those earnings from our ATM in order to see them in your SL account.
  • If you get an error while withdrawing from one of our ATM's please don't panic, simply file a ticket with our helpdesk support staff and wait for instructions to be sent to you via email. Check your spam folder for these as well.
  • The potions and powders won when fishing are a bonus - a gift from the creators - and are not resalable. The exceptions to this policy are the fish you catch, and Biowaste.
  • If you are fishing at a busy sim and are getting many "Oh Dears" results, slow down your casts and listen for the sounds of other fishers casting. Aim your casts for when there is less casting sounds.
  • It is against Goldtokens policy to ask the hosts of our buoys to fund a depleted buoy or turn a multiplier event on.
  • It is best to move away from the landing point after tp-ing to a buoy so that others coming in don't land on you and are not obstructed by your avatar.
  • There are dozens of handy tips and hints to learn as you begin the journey to becoming an expert fisher, and plenty of community members willing to answer questions. Don't be afraid to ask them, and listen (read) the ongoing chat in the LGH room. You will learn as you go and have fun getting there!
