How do I catch fish? I'm not sure of the mechanics.

Bump. Any help at all?

From the game's FAQ:
2. Controls-

Control Pad: It controls your movements, cycles through lists, directs
casting and reeling, and if you run into someone, you talk to them.

Select: Toggles between walking and fishing.

Start: Starts the game. It also pauses it.

"A": Use it to reel in line, attack animals, or confirm something on the
menu.

"B": It controls casting and cancels selections on the menu. It also
gets you out of the menu.

The instruction manual is of no help. I've logged 38 minutes of play and caught zero fish. I read on the board here that you wait until the fish stops swimming then try to reel it in. So I do that and then it resists, the beeping noise kicks in and whether I let go or keep reeling it gets away.

Either this game was a waste of $5 or I need to be told the secret on how to catch a fish.

It has been a long time since I have played it. I think you need to real it in a little bit at a time and let wear itself out.

Maybe this will help you? I'm not sure. They catch a fish at this point in the video. I've never played the game so I don't know what to say on it.

Thanks but that video was no help. He did nab a fish on first try but didn't give any clues on how to do that. Which you'd think would be the point of a Lets Play video.

Ok I was having this problem too, but I found out how to catch a fish
Basically before you reel in you have to let the fish run with the line till it stops completely and as soon as the fish stops you have to reel in, untill the fish begins to fight back and you reel much slower then let the fish run with the line again and repeat the first step do this untill you catch the fish

I finally found out how to catch fish. When it stops completely hold the A button, then the fish turns backwards, wait untill it stops and repeat fist step. I had no idea at first, but now it's easy.
