To hook into a fish, all you have to do is:
Select the 7.0 foot heavy rod with 30lb. Test line in
the "Casting" category.
Select a large, green grub with a jig head.
For a Catfish, cast it near it's head and let it sink to
the bottom. Then...BOOM! For any other fish, cast it a
little farther away from the fish, and reel it SLOWLY by
its head. Then, again, BOOM!
After hooking into a fish, all you have to do to reel it
in is: 1)Set your reel speed to 5. 2)Set your Drag to 3. 3)
As you reel, keep pushing the mouse or joystick up and down
or in circles.
Any fish of any size will reel in pretty quickly without
breaking the line. Rarely, some fish will spit the hook though.
Go to single player. Then, Fishing Trip. When the screen comes
up and tells you to start a new trip, click on Quick Fish.
It should take you to Bull Shoals Lake. For your bait, pick
spoon, weedless skirt,(lower left hand corner), get out of
bait settings. After that you put some scent to your bait.
Set the auto cast about 2 inches from the fish. Set the drag
so there are only 2 yellow dots seen. Cast and let bait sink.
Darg the bait slowly past the fish. Boy, it is strong.
