  • Fishing with a Catch-of-the-Day Bait may result in the player getting a fish bigger than its maximum perfect size.
    • Such fish are called massive fish.
  • A bug involving the Shrimp Lure made players able to catch any kind of fish with a greatly higher size than perfect during the first hours after the fishing update was released. This bug was later fixed.
