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.
To hook into a fish, all you have to do is:
1) Select the 7.0 foot heavy rod with 30lb. Test line in the
2) 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.
