Guardian Bait

I went to the sea, tried fishing there, then talked to the old man and he told me that if I catch him a guardian he would give me his sea fishing gear. I accepted hermit quest 10, but I've been trying to get the bug for the guardian for like 2 months now. I've tried it during day and night, but I can't get it. Is it supposed to be really rare?

Yes, its supposed to be rare.

The bait is the Inaba Jewel Beetle and the Guardian can only be fished on rainy days.

You'll know whether or not the Guardian is on the line when after the, lure dips, the water shake violently. The same thing goes for the Sea Guardian, but with the Genji Beetle.

Does this mean I'm screwed for catching them when it snows? I've been using the Inaba Jewel Beetle to try and land a River Guardian... and all I catch are... Huge Fish... I thought the baits description was just being vague about what "huge fish" I would catch... being that the Guardian is pretty darn BIG...

When you are fishing for the guardian (both river and sea) the water will have 5 ripples and a big splash. If you don't see the splash, reel in and try again. I believe after December 1, you can catch the Gaurdian(s) on any day.

Big splash? Does this happen when the bobber hits the water?
