 I knew that these are known to approach the shore in search of prey, but great job catching it! And not losing your pole in the process!

        I finally found one and then the Kestodons respawned and interrupted me as I was about to reel in. Love this game

        • If you go to the Ancient Forest chasing KM crowns, I highly recommend doing in on High Rank. They seem to spawn about as often as Master Rank, but MR spawns are almost 50/50 if it'll be the great variety or normal; additionally, in HR, the king varieties always spawn along side their normal variants, which is not the case in MR.

            Has anyone been able to acquire a gold or mini crown for this thing? I swear the great marlins spawn as often as the regular ones now and they all seem to be average size.
