Anglers Pond is a new mini game in FarmVille. It was originally released on December 4, 2012. It was free to access and you could find it on your home farm down in the bottom corner. You would be transferred over to the new anglers pond where you can fish, collect items for rewards and more.
At this time the only collections that can be completed without using Farm Cash are the Basic Collection and the Boot Collection. All others require a separate Rod (Trout, Bass and Salmon) in order to catch those specific fish.
Free Bait does come around, but it is like energy in that you get a new piece every 15 minutes or so. All in all not too bad, but they are gonna putting the screws to you for the other collections.
When fishing you have a chance on finding Mega Bait. This new Bait can be found in your Tackle Box, under the Bait tab. When fishing with this bait, it will give you 10% increased chance on catching a fish. This bait cannot be bought in the Bait Shop!
On december 24, 2012 all of the Fishing Rods became free for undetermined time. This gave FarmVille players the opportunity to get other Rods, besides the basic rod, and complete their other collections.
