'The Catch: Carp & Coarse' (ALL) Introduces Five New Venues - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 24, 2020 @ 9:15 a.m. PDT

The Catch: Carp & Coarse is a species hunting fishing game about the passion and pursuit of what lurks beneath the waters.

You’re set, waiting…. The line tightens, your alarm screams, the fish is on and the battle commences!

Take on the hunt of a lifetime as you target and pursue monster sized fish around the world. With 35 species to hunt you’ll have to work up your strategy, skill and tactics to catch every boss fish in each venue. It’ll take both patience and adrenaline to succeed as you choose your angling spot carefully based on time of day, weather conditions and perfect equipment setup, before casting out into the water to battle and catch these elusive creatures.


Dovetail Games introduced the five new venues where you can catch the enormous Monster Boss fish in The Catch: Carp & Coarse.

Oxlease, England, UK

A quintessentially English lake, surrounded by leafy woodlands and green fields with plenty of purpose built fishing pegs, 26 acre Oxlease is one of the jewels in the crown of the famed Linear complex. In summer, the main quarry are carp, huge dark backed fish including ‘Alice’ who can reach over 45lbs (20kg), and the bullish ‘Oxen’, a surly brute touching 40lbs (18kg). In winter, Oxlease is also a renowned pike venue, packed with toothy predators to over 20lbs (9kg)! Can you find ‘The Prime Pike’ or one of the amazing double figure tench during your visit?

Pearl Lake, Malaysia

Emerald waters and tumbling waterfalls are surrounded by high limestone cliffs and glossy palm trees which sway gently in the warm sea breeze as anglers shelter from the heat of the tropical sun. Massive Arapaima, Giant Wolf Fish and exotic Redtail Catfish will all pull your string here, so your tackle needs to be strong enough to cope with fish that run to over 450lbs (204kg)! After a tiring day by the water however, this resort comes alive at night with cocktails and partying amongst the bamboo chalets and restaurants as the mist settles over the lake… are you up for it?

River Ebro, Spain

At the foot of the Catalonian mountains near Fayon, the River Ebro clefts the Spanish countryside with a glittering blue scar of fish filled water. This big river is home to some seriously big fish, and you can expect to find catfish to almost 250lbs (113kg), hundreds of carp approaching 80lbs (36kg), with barbel, perch, roach, eels and more of sizes not found anywhere else on earth! It’s an angler’s dream venue! Will you fish from the rocky shoreline or opt for a boat, drifting over the azure surface under a hot Spanish sun? If you are stuck for divine inspiration, head for the sunken church, the spire of which pokes from the depths of the river.

Rotterdam, Netherlands

With so many likely spots to choose from, where will you head for first? You could target the wandering shoals of big bream and carp which inhabit the open water wides of mid-river, or maybe seek out the cover and shelter of moored boats and the shadows beneath the bridges in search of predatory perch, pike and monster catfish which run to 150lbs (68kg)? How about grabbing the lure rod to indulge in some street fishing, or fish delicately presented natural baits for a huge variety of other species? Flowing through the heart of uber cool Rotterdam, the Nieuwe Maas has plenty of options!

Loch Mickle, Scotland, UK

Cold, deep and mysterious, Loch Mickle should be on your bucket list for the variety of rarely caught species within. Often battered by winds, slashing rain and snow, this forbidding inland sea can be fished from shore or boat, or even the dedicated fishing pier, but wrap up warm if you brave this venue! Char, salmon and trout provide the main sport, but carp, pike and eels can also be caught. Remember to keep watch for unexpected monsters… it can’t be the only Scottish loch with a legend attached can it?

Key Features:

  • GO SPECIES HUNTING: 35 different species of realistically captured fish with their own unique behaviour and bait preferences await you. Every tactic and piece of equipment will be needed to catch them all as you go from float fishing for species such as rudd, ide and bream to using lures for trout, salmon and pike. You can also fish for rare species such as pacu, mekong and redtail catfish.
  • LAND THE BOSS FISH: There are 125 legendary Boss Fish for you to catch including 11 Monster Boss Fish – the hardest fish to catch in the game. These named fish put up a huge fight and only the best will be able to locate and land them all.
  • WORLD DESTINATIONS: Featuring 5 unique destinations that all present their own challenges. Oxlease Lake on the Linear Fisheries complex is a specimen carp water with some great back up species including tench and roach. The River Ebro is home to huge wels catfish and Pearl Lake in Malaysia features exotic monsters such as arapaima and giant wolf fish. Go urban street fishing in Rotterdam city centre or explore the openness of Loch Mickle in Scotland that both contain predators such as pike and zander.
  • ADVANCED WATER FLOW: Advanced water flow will affect your fishing whether that’s from the bank or in a boat. Keep an eye on your float drifting downstream or your boat moving off the prime spot that you have identified.
  • ALL THE GEAR, ALL THE IDEAS: 100’s of items of equipment from over 20 licensed partners including RidgeMonkey and Mainline Baits. Create different set ups to cover all situations and use some of your favourite real-world equipment from the biggest manufactures in the industry.
  • BATTLE IT OUT: Multiplayer and tournaments will feed your competitive streak as you take part in a series of events that form the Dovetail Fishing League. There are some fantastic real-world prizes up for grabs if you come out on top!
  • EXCLUSIVE REWARDS: A unique set of challenges will test you even further - complete them and unlock exclusive rewards only available through the in-game mastery system.

The Catch: Carp & Coarse is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in Summer 2020.
