Tips Before Starting

  • Get the right fishing tools
  • Use Baits from General Good Stores – The baits and lures have the fish name written on them that they will attract. This is good for attracting a particular legendary fish.
  • Throw the fishing line as far as possible – while retracting it will cover a lot of areas when comparing to throwing it at a short distance.
  • Reel Only When Fish Stops Struggling – If you start reeling as soon as you catch the fish, there’s a chance that the wire will break.
