    BASIC FISHING INFO
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    *Some of this info applies only to Tournament events and won’t apply if 
    you’re Free Fishing.  The Fish-o-pedia says Piton the Northern Snakehead 
    sighted this autumn in the evening and it should be autumn in the morning.  
    I have corrected it throughout the guide. The Fish-o-pedia does not list 
    Walleye at Lake Mead, but they can be found there in the morning.
    
    
    Upon starting a new game you will select a character and customize it.  
    You will not be able to change your name or gender, but you can change 
    your clothing later.  Use the A button to select.  Use the thumbstick, D-pad 
    or Wii cursor to change the  options.  When finished, you will be 
    prompted to save the profile.
    
    The next screen you come to is the main menu.
    
    When you select a Tournament event there are four subheadings: 
          Start Event - begin the tournament
          Event Table - competitor standings	
          Livewell - what fish you’ve caught 
          Tier Table - leader board.
    
    There are four tiers to each skill level. You must complete lower tiers 
    before  unlocking the next tier.Choose a tournament event, free fishing 
    or two player and press A to begin.  The Z button changes the view while 
    you’re driving the boat. Press A in the boat to accelerate, B to reverse 
    and brake.  Thumbstick on nunchuck, or tilting the controller, will steer 
    the boat.  If you’re using the thumbstick, be sure to not tilt the 
    controller. You can’t enter fishing mode if the boat is going too fast.  
    Press the 1 button to enter fishing mode. Press the 1 button to get back 
    in the boat.
    
    Target fish means the fish you are trying to catch. There are several 
    indicators to show you where fish are.  In Tournament events, always drive 
    around until you find the large green circles on the GPS.  If the Fishfinder 
    is on, your target fish are blue and the others are red.  
    
    During Free Fishing, the red circles on the GPS are the best fishing spots. 
    Your casting ring will turn from yellow to green when you are in the 
    boundaries of the fishing spot.In the lower left corner, while in 
    boat-driving mode, is the FishFinder/GPS. The C button will toggle between 
    FishFinder and GPS.  Pressing the plus (+) button during game play will 
    bring up the menu and pause the game.  Depending on what mode of fishing 
    you do, some of the options won’t be in the menu. 
    
    Tournament Menu:
          Resume
          Event Objectives – what fish you’re going for, primary and 
    secondary objectives
          Livewell – fish you’ve caught
          Event Table – competitors and rankings
    	Fish-o-pedia – everything you need to know about lure techniques, 
    equipment, fish, etc…
          Controls – allows you to switch control sets
          Options – gameplay, video and sound (use the thumbstick or d-pad to 
    change options) 
          Restart 
          Quit to Main Menu
    	
    Free Fishing Menu:
          Resume
          Objectives – this show up once you’ve accepted a challenge
          Fish-o-pedia
          Controls
          Challenges – a list of challenges for that lake and completion status
          Options – gameplay, video and sound (use the thumbstick or d-pad to 
    change options)
          Restart
          Quit to main menu 
    
    Pressing the – button will bring up your tackle box while your in the boat 
    or while fishing. Pressing the one button with your tackle box open will 
    toggle through the fish in that lake for your season and time of day.  
    There will be a max of four fish species in the lake at any season and time, 
    or five if you met the Monster fish requirements during Free Fishing. 
    Tournament events may have more than four fish species.  You must change 
    season or time of day to change the fish species in the lake during Free 
    Fishing.  Largemouth Bass are present constantly.
    
    When you get out of the boat to fish, there will be a colored circle, 
    either yellow or green.  This is the casting ring.  Better rods and reels 
    improve casting precision and distance.  Use the thumbstick to move the 
    casting ring around.  Also use the thumbstick to troll.  Push the casting 
    ring out to max distance and keep pushing to troll out further.  Pull the 
    casting ring all the way toward you and keep pulling to troll in reverse.  
    If the casting ring hits a barrier, like the bank or a wall, it won’t troll 
    you any closer.  In timed events – Tournament and Free Fishing – setting 
    your casting ring around 47-60 feet greatly improves your success. Try to 
    stop the boat more close to the bank if you need the casting ring closer 
    to you.  
    
    Pull up your tackle using the minus (–) button. Toggle through the fish in 
    the lake  using the 1 button. Fish will have five stars underneath them.  
    Depending on how well the fish likes the tackle you’re using, the stars 
    will change from all black (doesn’t like it at all) to red, yellow or green.  
    One red star means the fish will bite on your selected tackle. Five green 
    stars is perfect tackle. Using the tackle that your target fish really 
    likes, and the least amount of other fish in that lake that like it, 
    improves your chances of catching the target fish.  Use the thumbstick or 
    D-pad to change lures, reels and rods.  If a fish has one red star when 
    the lure is small and  the line is 6 pounds, larger fish of that species 
    will still bite.
    
    To cast press and hold B, raise the controller and fling it forward quickly 
    in an arc.  You will get a casting bonus for hitting the ring.  If you press 
    and hold the B  button for too long it will shrink, decreasing your chance 
    for the bonus.
    
    After casting, press the Z button to change lure techniques.  Lures have 2 
    techniques.  Change techniques if your fish aren’t responding to the first 
    technique. Mimic the movement of the controller on the lower right to attract 
    fish from farther away.  Always use the lure technique. Press 2 while reeling 
    in to turn the lure technique icon off and on.
    
    If you mimic the lure technique correctly, some background music will start 
    and your lure will give off sparkling gold stars.  Press and hold the B 
    button to reel in.  You can also reel in using the nunchuck (wiggle it 
    back and forth, or in a circle.  You’ll be able to hear it reeling in 
    when done properly). 
     
    If you want to turn the music off, press the plus (+) button, choose Options, 
    then audio, turn down the Retrieve music.When a fish bites, hook the 
    fish by jerking the Wii-mote in the direction of the onscreen indicator. 
    Keep reeling in as you hook the fish. See below for perfect hooking 
    instructions. When you hook a fish, the bottom left will say the type of 
    fish and how much it weighs.
    
    There will be a treble hook icon on the lower right corner after you hook a 
    fish. This is your hook stability. Depending on how well you hooked the fish, 
    you’ll receive one of three colors on the treble hook icon: three silver 
    hooks for perfect, one yellow or red with two silver hooks for good, or two 
    silver hooks for poor.  Reel in constantly or the line will slack and the 
    fish will escape.  Stop reeling when the fish swims to far to the sides of 
    the screen, a circle of red will appear around the fish’s mouth and the 
    game gives warning beeps. The treble hooks will turn color from silver to
    yellow to red and break off if your fish is on the side of the screen too 
    long.  
    
    Keep the fish in the center of the screen by moving your controller in the 
    opposite  direction the fish is pulling and the same direction the onscreen 
    controller is  showing.  As the fish moves toward the center of the screen, 
    move the Wii-mote also.  You want to move the Wii-mote in the mirror opposite 
    of the fish. If you pull the fish to the side, without moving the Wii-mote to 
    the center as the fish does, you’ll just keep pulling him all the way to the 
    side of the screen. The Wii-mote will vibrate when the fish is going to 
    switch sides. Using the right fishing line helps or hinders how far and how 
    long a fish can be to the sides of the screen.  If you have a 40 pound fish 
    on a 10 pound line, you’re going to get lots of red.
    
    If you caught a fish you don’t want, press the C button to cut the line.  
    Cutting the  line on a fish makes it leave your fishing spot too and can 
    be a benefit if your lure  attracts multiple types of fish. In Rookie 
    tournament mode the fish tire out easily  and will always stay in the 
    center of the screen.  
    
    When fish get within 22 feet of the boat the viewing angle will change.  
    The onscreen controller indicator, showing you what direction to keep it 
    in the center, disappears. Watch the fish and pull in the opposite 
    direction it’s facing to keep it in the center. 
    
    As the game progresses there will be a red bar across the top of the 
    screen with blue  in the middle.  This means the fish is going to jump 
    and you have to press the A  button while a circle is within the blue 
    section to prevent its escape.  The bigger  the fish, the smaller the 
    blue section and the appropriate line plays a factor also.  
     
    With some fish you have two chances to hit the blue section, your first 
    chance is when the circle moves toward the left, prior to the fish’s jump, 
    and your second chance when the circle moves toward the right after the fish 
    has jumped. Successfully countering an escape brings the fish closer to you. 
    How many feet closer is determined by the weight of the fish and the line 
    you’re using. 
    
    There is a timer at the top of the screen after selecting events, and when 
    it runs out  the tournament or challenge is over.  If you have a fish on, 
    you can keep reeling it  in and it will still count toward the tournament. 
    During tournament, if you don’t have a fish on when the timer runs out, it 
    puts you automatically in the boat mode. This is a bit glitchy, sometimes 
    when I had a fish on at the end of the timer it counted toward the tournament
    and sometimes not.
    
    You have 10 minutes to get back to the dock during tournament play. Press 
    the 1  button to get into boat mode if you had a fish on when the timer ran 
    out. Press the C button to view the GPS. Follow the double arrows on the 
    GPS to the dock. When the dock is on the same screen as your boat, it will
    be a blue square. Drive up close to the dock and press the A button to 
    weigh in. 
    
    You can press 1 to restart a tournament or A to accept.  Restarting will 
    remove your eligible unlockables and points from the event and you’ll have 
    to start over.  When  Free Fishing, you won’t see your unlockables until 
    you return to the main menu.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    ATTACK BONUS
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After you complete a tier 1 level in the Rookie Season, reeling in while 
    the fish is  in the center of the screen fills up an attack bar.  The bar 
    starts off as a small  bluish-white dot at the top center of the screen, 
    just under the clock, and expands to  the left and right as you keep the 
    fish in the center. When the attack bar turns all  blue, the A button will 
    appear on screen.  Before initiating attack, make sure the  buttons are 
    facing up when you jerk the line (buttons toward the ceiling, battery pack 
    facing the floor).  If you tipped it and the buttons are facing slightly 
    sideways, not up, you’ll probably get some red lines.  Follow the onscreen 
    prompts to determine  which direction to jerk. Keep your wrist as stiff as 
    possible and move your elbow  instead. 
    
    Red, blue or bluish-white lines will surround the fish. Blue lines 
    are perfect. Red lines mostly sink the hook deeper, but the fish will 
    swim out about farther and occasionally lose hook stability. Bluish-white 
    means you’re probably going to lose the fish. 
    
    As the game progresses you’ll be able to press the A button to flip small 
    and medium sized fish into the boat when they’re within 22 feet.  
    The Flip It game bar and the Attack game bar are one in the same.  
    Depending on how many feet out your fish is, you may want to save the 
    bonus for a Flip It instead of Attack.  If you’re far enough out, it is 
    possible to fill the game bar a second time before the fish gets within 
    22 feet. Max size to flip is somewhere between 6 pounds 5 ounces and 
    6 pounds 9 ounces. If your fish is the appropriate weight, the game bar 
    will continue to fill up for the Flip it bonus when the fish is within 
    22 feet of the boat. The Flip it bonus  disappears when the fish is within 
    5 feet of the boat. When the fish is 3 feet away,  your character will haul 
    the fish in the boat.  You can decide whether to keep or  release most fish, 
    monster fish you must release.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    OVERHEAD AND PITCH CASTING
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are two types of casting, overhead (overhand) and pitch (underhand).
    
    How to overhead cast:  
    
    Hold the Wii-mote like you’re the Statue of Liberty and the Wii-mote is the 
    torch. Now bend and point your elbow toward the TV (if the Wii-mote is in 
    your right hand, bend your elbow while putting the Wii-mote on your right 
    shoulder.  If the Wii-mote is in your left hand, bend your elbow while 
    putting the Wii-mote on your left shoulder).  The Wii-mote buttons should 
    be facing the floor.  
    
    Press and hold the B button.  Without letting go of the Wii-mote, fling the 
    Wii-mote forward toward the TV as fast as you can and let go of the B button 
    when you’re about halfway through the arc.  If you aren’t casting perfectly, 
    experiment when you let go of the B button and the speed that you fling the 
    controller.  Move the casting ring from max distance to half distance and 
    try to hit the casting ring.  If it goes too far, ease up on how fast you’re 
    casting.  How far you cast will be at the bottom center of the screen after 
    your lure hits the water.
    
    How to pitch cast: 
    
    Method 1: Hold the Wii-mote with the buttons facing up, 
    battery pack facing down. This is the same action as initiating the 
    Attack function.  Swipe the rod horizontally, kind of like throwing a 
    Frisbee.  You can cast from right to left or left to right.  
    Keep your wrist stiff and move your elbow instead.
    
    Method 2:  Point the tip of the Wii-mote toward the floor (buttons and 
    battery pack facing to the right and left of you may be easier than 
    buttons up, battery pack down) and flick the Wii-mote upwards. 
    
    A pitch cast won’t go as far as an overhead cast.  Move your casting ring 
    out as far as it will go, pitch cast a few times and make a mental note of 
    how many feet you’re throwing.  Move the casting ring to the number of feet 
    you’re consistently pitch casting.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    PERFECT HOOKS
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Wait for the fish to get close, ignore the lure technique 
    and have the controller held  horizontally (Wii-mote pointing 
    in front of you, nunchuck cable pointed toward you and buttons facing 
    the ceiling, battery pack facing the floor). When it bites, jerk the 
    controller in the direction of the onscreen indicator.  Keep your wrist 
    stiff and move your elbow instead. 
    
    The indicator will show you one of four directions: up, down, left, right. 
    For an up icon, jerk the Wii-mote tip from facing in front of you toward the 
    ceiling. For a down icon, jerk the Wii-mote tip from facing in front of you 
    toward the floor. If you’re using a topwater lure, most fish will give you a 
    down icon. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    MONSTER FISH TRICK
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Use this technique for Monster Hunt challenges and challenges 
    that have a pounds of fish requirement, restarting in between each 
    challenge. Make sure your autosave feature is turned on by pulling 
    up the menu, go to Options then Gameplay. Autosave is the third one down. 
    Make sure the autosave screen pops up after you completed the challenge. 
    There may be a brief pause before it pops up on some challenges. 
    
    Drive to and activate the appropriate challenge rings after you have 
    the Monster fish Location. Monster trick information will be listed 
    again at the beginning of each Free Fishing lake.  Monster fish are 
    indicated on the GPS by a blue circle and on the fish finder by a giant 
    blue fish.  Use GPS view when using this trick.  Occasionally the red 
    fishing spots and blue Monster fish spots overlap, switch to the fish 
    finder if you’re unsure. Some blue Monster fish spots may not be visible 
    until you drive near enough to them. Change the season and time of day to 
    your Monster fish requirements before entering the lake.  Drive to the 
    location for each lake listed below.  
    
    ***If it’s not there, press the plus (+) button to access the menu and 
    restart***   Pull up the GPS again after restarting.  It may take several 
    tries, most of the time, but not always, less than 10.  This will work for 
    all Monster fish in the lake, not just a specific Monster fish. 
    
    -LAKE MINNETONKA-
    
    The blue indicator is not visible immediately, you must drive near it. 
    From the  default boat position drive straight west under the bridge near 
    the Strength In  Numbers Challenge.  Look for the blue indicator on the 
    left side near the bank in  front of the large yellow house.
    
    -LAKE LANIER-
    
    The blue indicator is not visible immediately, you must drive near it. 
    Drive down the southeast branch that is directly underneath you. Red and 
    blue fishing spots may overlap.
    
    -LAKE CASITAS-
    
    The blue indicator will be visible immediately on your GPS to the north, 
    in between the two docks nearest to The Meaning of Fishing Challenge.
    
    -LAKE CHAMPLAIN-
    
    The blue indicator will be visible immediately on your GPS to the east.  
    
    -LAKE FORK-
    
    The blue indicator will be visible immediately on your GPS to the northeast.
    
    -LAKE ERIE-
    
    Blue indicator will be visible immediately to the right.  Drive forward 
    and turn right, in between the first two docks.
    
    -LAKE MEAD-
    
    The blue indicator is not visible immediately, you must drive near it. 
    Drive southeast from the default boat position to the easternmost corner 
    of this branch.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    TOURNAMENT
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    *This was written before any Free Fishing challenge lures were unlocked 
    and you may have better options.  
    
    Seasons:  Rookie, Pro, Legendary
    You must complete Rookie season to unlock Pro and complete Pro to unlock 
    Legendary.
    
    Secondary objective helps you gain tournament points but won’t get you 
    unlockables.
    
    When you’re in a tournament with a length requirement, sometimes the fish 
    that weigh less are longer than a heavier fish.
    
    If you feel like you’ve won or want to stop, drive to the dock and you can 
    weigh in  early and it will tally the scores immediately.
    
    The unlockables are by tier only. You won’t get additional unlockables for 
    completing the other tournament events in those tiers. 
    
    The tier structures for Rookie, Pro and Legendary are identical: Three 
    events for tier 4, two events for tier 3, one event for tiers 2 and Final.
    
    Cut the line on anything hooked outside of your target fish with the C button.
    
    You must keep the fish for it to count toward your total.
    
    In Tournament fishing there are large green circles when you’re using the GPS.  
    These fishing spots are loaded with your target fish.  Always drive around 
    until you find one. If you switch to the FishFinder your target fish will be 
    blue, other fish will be red. When you get out to cast, hover your casting 
    ring over the surface of the water until it turns green. A yellow casting ring 
    means you’re outside of the fishing spot.  
    
    Keeping your casting ring around 47-60 feet, and still green, is the 
    single most  important element, outside of location, that will help you 
    place first.  You will have  a lot more time at your disposal if you didn’t 
    waste two minutes or more reeling in if your casting ring was at max distance.
    
    To troll the boat if you are too far away, set the casting ring to max 
    distance and keep pushing it out further. If you are too close, bring the 
    casting ring as close to  you as you can and keep pulling the casting ring 
    toward you. If the Interim standings get in the way of your FishFinder/GPS, 
    turn them off by pressing the plus (+) button, go to Options then Gameplay.  
    Turn Interim Standings off at the bottom.

    FREE FISHING
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    *If you’ve met the requirements to unlock the monster fish,
    the GPS will show a blue circle at a random location upon entering 
    the lake and the fish finder will have a giant blue fish.  
    You don’t have to activate the Monster Hunt Challenge for the blue 
    indicator to be there and can catch them right away.  You have to activate 
    the Monster Hunt Challenge for it to qualify toward the challenge. If you’re
     in a lake with a challenge where a requirement is pounds of fish, you can 
    use the monster fish toward the weight qualification.  Once you catch a 
    monster fish, it will move to a new location. You don’t have to restart.  
    If you’re at a lake where the monster fish is near the default boat 
    position, you may have to restart several times for it to reappear.
    
    If you’re having difficulty trying to find it, get the fastest boat 
    by unlocking the  final tier of the Pro Season. Drive around every inch 
    of the lake since some of the  GPS indicators don’t show up until you’re 
    near them.
    
    You can select all of the lakes, weather type, reel type, season and 
    time of day and  play with no time limit to free fish.In each lake are 
    red rings on the water surface with a red and white circle floating 
    above them.  Drive into the red circle and press A to activate a challenge. 
    There are time limits to most challenges. If you complete the challenge 
    successfully, the red circle on the water surface disappears.  
    
    The red and white circle floating above the water remains if you ever 
    want to repeat the challenge.  It will auto save when you complete the 
    challenge if you have that option turned on. The red circle on the water 
    surface will not reappear even if you leave the lake.  When you quit to 
    main menu, you can see the unlockables you collected.  There’s no easy 
    way to tell you how to locate the rings, just drive around until you 
    spot one.  Use the GPS and drive around the border of land clockwise 
    if you’re having a problem.
    
    I completed all of the Tournament challenges before this, so some of my 
    equipment may be different than yours.
    
    After selecting a lake, press the plus (+) button to access the challenges 
    information.
    
    ----------------------------LAKE MINNETONKA CHALLENGES-----------------------
    
    *MONSTER FISH TRICK: You need to drive near it. From the default 
    boat position drive straight west under the bridge near the 
    Strength In Numbers Challenge.  Look for the blue indicator on the 
    left side near the bank in front of the large yellow house. Set season
     and time of day to autumn in the morning and use Lou the Lake Sturgeon 
    for Monster Hunt and The Real Deal challenges.

    Title: MEET THE FISH
    Objective: Catch 4 different species of fish
    Time Limit: 15 minutes
    Unlockable: Men’s character Woodland Shorts, woman’s character Cut-Offs
    Recommendations:  Change the time of day to morning. Drive to a fishing 
    spot using the fish finder. Equip 30 pound line and a shallow running 
    Rapala Original Floater medium to catch a Walleye, Muskellunge and a 
    Silver Carp in the same fishing spot.  Cut the line if you hook the 
    same type of fish that you’ve already caught. Drive to a new location 
    and use a Topwater Rapala Skitter Walk to snag a Largemouth Bass. 
    It doesn’t have to be a fishing spot, just somewhere random. If you 
    don’t want to go back and change time of day, toggle through the fish 
    and see what lure they like.
    
    Title: THE REAL DEAL
    Objective: Catch more than 100 pounds of fish without losing any fish
    Time Limit: 30 minutes
    Unlockable: Rapala Skitter Pop
    Recommendation:  Cutting the line counts as losing a fish. 
    
    Method 1: Catch Lou the Lake Sturgeon, 200-plus pounds.
    
    Method 2: Shallow running Rapala Original Floater, large, 30 pound line 
    (unlock tier 3 of Rookie tournament) or 80 if you have it (placed first 
    in the final round of the Legendary Tournament), any rod and reel.  
    Drive to a nearby fishing spot.  If you only have 14 pound line (unlocked 
    by winning 3rd place or better in Rookie Season tier 1), use a medium 
    instead of large.
    
    Title: TARGET PRACTICE, LAKE MINNETONKA
    Objective: Cast into more than 10 rings in the time limit
    Time Limit: 9 minutes
    Unlockable: Rapala Glass Shad Rap
    Recommendation: Only one ring appears at a time.  You can miss and it’s 
    not a penalty. Equip rod and reel with best casting precision.  Line your 
    pole up with the right edge of the casting ring and use overhead casting.
    
    Title: STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
    Objective: Catch 5 fish of the same species consecutively in any of the 
    locations  
    specified on the map
    Time Limit: 15 minutes
    Unlockable: Sunglasses 2
    Recommendation:  When you accept the challenge the spots on the map, using 
    your GPS, are represented by blue dots and on the water surface is a lime 
    green ring.  Use the Shift Casting Rod, a Rapala Original Floater medium 
    and 30 pound line.  Line your casting ring up so that max distance lands 
    in the middle or the edge opposite of you, troll the boat if you need to.  
    Catch your first fish and make that your target fish. Cut the line to any 
    that aren’t your target fish.  Use the Attack and Flip it function 
    at every opportunity.  When you cut the line, recast as fast as possible.
    
    To find the location of the Strength in Numbers challenge ring, go to the 
    main menu and start Free Fishing, Lake Minnetonka from the beginning.  
    When you enter the lake the default boat position is facing the Northwest 
    corner on your GPS.  Drive straight forward toward that Northwest corner 
    inlet and there are some banners on a bridge that say Sufix and VMC.  This 
    looks like a barrier, but it’s not.  Drive under them. 
    
    
    Title: JUST PERFECT
    Objective: Perform 5 perfect hooks.
    Time Limit: 10 minutes
    Unlockable: Men’s character Rapala Tournament Shirt 4, woman’s character

    Rapala Original Floater, medium and 6 pound line.  Hover the casting ring 
    over the surface of the water until it turns green. You don’t have to reel 
    them in, just hook them.

    Time Limit: 1 hour

    change the season and  time of day.  The Monster fish will be indicated by
    a blue circle using your GPS or a giant blue fish using the fish finder.
    
    If your Monster fish is not in a fishing spot, your casting ring will turn 
    lime green  when it’s above it (it will be lime green if it’s over a fishing 
    spot regardless).   When you catch the Monster fish, the lower left fish 
    information will say its name  instead of species, i.e. Dottie the Largemouth 
    Bass will say Dottie.Troll your boat until your casting ring is around 45 
    feet and still green for an easy catch.
    
    Equip for all: Shallow running Rapala Original Floater medium, 80 pound line.

    North of the Bass Fight challenge ring is a Bridge.  Before the bridge is an 
    inlet on the west side.  It may have indicators on your GPS that show a 
    fishing spot.  Along the inlet is some tall grass and a couple of dead 
    branches that prevent you from driving your boat into the inlet. You have 
    to pitch cast into it.  Be sure to set your casting ring twice as far as 
    you want to land, because pitch casting will be about half the distance.

    green ring will disappear and you drive to the new location.  Equip a Shallow 
    running Rapala Original Floater small, 14 pound line and your shortest 
    casting rod.  Line up the casting ring so you hit the edge furthest away 
    from you at max distance.  Initiate Attack and Flip it as much as possible. 
    Cut the line on anything that bites that will give your 14 pound line a 
    problem.  If you are a confident marksman, line up your casting ring at 
    50-ish feet to the center of the green ring.   If you have problems, switch 
    to a faster boat and shorten your casting distance, and change the season to

    If the challenge ring and green ring locations don’t vary by game, use this 
    as a guide to finding the green rings:  First ring, immediately east of this 
    challenge ring.  I used the GPS to drive to the next location. Point the boat 
    facing west and exit this  branch.  The GPS shows a branch going north and 
    south.  Take the second south branch, catch two fish in this ring until it 
    disappears. Leave this branch and go north.  Head slightly west and take the 
    first north branch.
    
    Title: 5 PERFECT PITCH CASTS
    Objective: Perform 5 consecutive perfect casts by using pitch cast
    Time Limit: 4 minutes
    Unlockable: SXSi Spinning Reel
    Recommendation: Equip rod and reel with highest casting precision. A pitch 
    cast won’t go as far as an overhead cast.  Move your casting ring out as far 
    as it will go, pitch cast a few times and make a mental note of how many feet
     you’re throwing.  Move the casting ring to the number of feet you’re 
    consistently pitch casting.
    
    How to pitch cast: 
    
    Method 1: Hold the Wii-mote with the buttons facing up, battery pack facing 
    down. This is the same action as initiating the Attack function.  Swipe the 
    rod horizontally, kind of like throwing a Frisbee.  You can cast from right 
    to left or left to right.
    
    Method 2:  Point the tip of the Wii-mote toward the floor (buttons and 
    battery pack  facing to the right and left of you may be easier than buttons
    up, battery pack down) and flick the Wii-mote upwards.  
    
    Title: THE X-CATCH

    Title: MONSTER HUNT, LAKE LANIER
    Objective: Catch a monster fish in this lake

    change the season and  time of day.  The Monster fish will be indicated by a
     blue circle using your GPS or a giant blue fish using the fish finder.
    
    If your Monster fish is not in a fishing spot, your casting ring will turn 
    lime green when it’s above it (it will be lime green if it’s over a fishing 
    spot regardless).   When you catch the Monster fish, the lower left fish 
    information will say its name  instead of species, i.e. Dottie the Largemouth 
    Bass will say Dottie.Troll your boat until your casting ring is around 45 
    feet and still green for an easy catch.

    Recommendation: Pull up your tackle and toggle through your fish to 
    make sure the Monster fish is there.  It will be listed by its name. If not, 
    change the season and time of day.  The Monster fish will be indicated by a 
    blue circle using your GPS or a giant blue fish using the fish finder. If your

    Time Limit: 8 minutes

    Title: IN BETWEEN
    Objective: Catch between 45-47 pounds in total fish weight
    Time Limit: 30 minutes
    Unlockable: Men’s character Rapala Tournament Shirt 3, woman’s character 
    Rapala Tournament Shirt 18
    Recommendation: Equip a Shallow running Rapala Original Floater, 30 pound 
    line and drive to the nearest fishing spot.  At the top, above the timer, 
    is your total fish  weight.  When you get to around 40-ish pounds, lower your 
    line weight to 6 or 10  pounds. 
    
    Tally 45 pounds minus your current fish weight. Tally 47 pounds minus your 
    current fish weight.  
    
    Example:
    45 pounds minus 43.3 = 1.7
    47 pounds minus 43.3 = 3.7
    
    The figure after the decimal point is not the ounces. It is tenths of a 
    pound. One  tenth of a pound is 1.6 ounces.  Use the conversion chart below 
    to figure out how many ounces your target fish should be.
    
    If your fish weight ends in the number on the left, the ounces should be the
     number on the right.  
    
    0.1=1.6
    0.2=3.2
    0.3=4.8
    0.4=6.4
    0.5=8
    0.6=9.6
    0.7=11.2
    0.8=12.8
    0.9=14.4
    
    The example fish (1.7 to 3.7) must weigh between 1 pound 11 ounces and 3 
    pounds 11 ounces. Cut the line on anything out of your target weight.

    Pull up your tackle box and toggle through the fish.  If Striped Bass are

    nearest fishing spot.  Hook your first fish and release it (fish number 1). 
    Fully reel in the next one (fish number 2).  Continue this pattern, cutting 
    the line of fish 3,5,7,9 and catch fish 4,6,8,10.  You will only be reeling 
    in 5 fish.   Wait to cut the line on your odd numbered fish until you see the 
    controller icon indicating which way to pull.  If you cut the line too soon, 
    you’ll have to start over.
    
    Title: 20 DEEP DIVING

    Time Limit: 50 minutes
    Unlockable: Rapala DT (Dives-to) Sure Set Series

    line and any rod or reel.  Drive to the nearest fishing spot.  Set your 
    casting ring to around 47 feet.  Utilize Attack and Flip it as much as 
    possible. Cut the line on anything that gives your line problems, or switch

    dive near them again, until you leave the lake. Having several visible before 
    starting is helpful. Stop the boat when you are directly over them. Make sure 
    your casting ring is green when casting into them.  If it doesn’t register 
    toward your score, try moving the casting ring a few feet.  Cut the line 
    immediately after the lure hits the water and you hear a chime.

    don’t have to reel them in,  just hook them. Missing is not a penalty. Wait 
    for the onscreen indicator showing you which direction to pull comes on 
    before you cut the line, or it may not count toward your score.

    Time Limit: 30 minutes
    Unlockable: Rapala Twitchin’ Rap
    Recommendation: Equip the Topwater lure you have unlocked that gives 
    Largemouth Bass the most stars, small, and 14 pound line.  
    
    Location 1: From the challenge ring, drive south until you see a south 
    entrance into a marina. There is a fishing spot to the east of the 
    marina entrance along the wall.  There is a tree, a tower and some tall 
    grass under the tree. Try to get your casting ring to around 60 feet from 
    you to the wall and still green. You’ll have to drive the boat closer 
    because you can’t troll when your casting ring is shorter than max distance. 
    Fish until you no longer get a bite and nothing follows your lure.   
    
    Location 2: Get back in your boat, use the GPS, and drive north. There is a 
    land barrier with street lamps on it.  Do not pass under the bridges and 
    continue north.  The land barrier will angle and you’ll see a line of trees. 
     In the corner where the  land barrier meets the line of trees are two trees 
    in the water with tall grass  underneath them and a red fishing spot.  
    Get out to fish and troll the boat as close  to the grass as you can, and 
    pull back your casting ring to about 80 feet. You may  
    need to occasionally pitch cast. Fish until you no longer get a bite and 
    nothing  follows your lure, and then go to next step if you haven’t caught 
    20.
    
    Get back in the boat and turn on your GPS, accelerate for 2 seconds and 
    brake. Get out to fish, cast off the front of your boat and set your casting 
    ring to around 50 feet. If you didn’t get a bite and no fish were following 
    the lure by 35 feet, cut the line, get in the boat and accelerate for 2 
    seconds and brake. Get out, cast and repeat. Utilize Attack and Flip it bonus 
    as much as possible.  If you can’t fill the Attack  bar twice by the time you 
    catch the fish, choose Flip it over Attack.
    
    
    Title: THE SMALLEST CATCH
    Objective: Use any Rapala lure to catch a fish smaller than 3 pounds
    Time Limit: 10 minutes
    Unlockable: Rapala DT (Dives-to) Flat Series
    Recommendation:  Equip a Shallow running Rapala Original Floater small, 6 
    pound line. Cast out about 47 feet from your immediate location. Cut the line

    Title: SEEING LOTS OF SITES
    Objective: Find and cast into 8 different fishing spots
    Time Limit: 15 minutes
    Unlockable: Luhr-Jensen Kwikfish Xtreme SureSet
    Recommendation:  Equip the fastest boat, any equipment.  The fishing spots 
    are the red circles using your GPS.  Some don’t show up until you are very 
    near them. Once visible, they will stay like that, preventing the need to 
    dive near them again, until you leave the lake. Having several visible 
    before starting is helpful. Stop the boat when you are directly over them. 
    Make sure your casting ring is green when casting into them.  If it doesn’t 
    register toward your score, try moving the casting ring a few feet.  Cut the 
    line immediately after the lure hits the water and you hear a chime.  
    
    
    Title: MONSTER HUNT, LAKE ERIE
    Objective: Catch a monster fish in this lake
    Time Limit: 1 hour
    Unlockable: Ranger 1860 Angler Color Option C
    Recommendation: Pull up your tackle and toggle through your fish to make 
    sure the Monster fish is there.  It will be listed by its name. If not, 
    change the season and  time of day.  The Monster fish will be indicated by a 
    blue circle using your GPS or a giant blue fish using the fish finder.If your 
    Monster fish is not in a fishing spot, your casting ring will turn lime green 
    when it’s above it (it will be lime green if it’s over a fishing spot 
    regardless).   
    
    When you catch the Monster fish, the lower left fish information will say 
    its name  instead of species, i.e. Dottie the Largemouth Bass will say 
    Dottie.
    
    Troll your boat until your casting ring is around 45 feet and still green for 
    an easy catch.
    
    Equip for all: Shallow running Rapala Original Floater medium, 80 pound line.

    your GPS, are represented by blue dots and on the water surface is a lime 
    green ring. Equip a Topwater Rapala Skitter Walk, small, 6 pound line, 
    attracting Largemouth Bass.  Set your boat at one edge of the green zone 
    and your casting ring at the opposite edge, about 75 feet.  Pull your 
    casting ring closer about 2 feet.  When reeling in using a Topwater lure, 
    you won’t see the lime green zone.  You may drive to different green zones 
    without penalty.

    Title: FISHING SPOT FRIEND
    Objective:  Cast and catch 1 fish in each of the map’s populated fishing 
    spots
    Time Limit: 50 minutes
    Unlockable: Trigger X Minnow
    Recommendation: Equip a Shallow running Rapala Original Floater, medium, 30 
    pound line and the fastest boat.Before activating this challenge, drive south 
    of the challenge ring and drive around the perimeter of the entire lake until 
    all of the fishing spots along the bank are visible.  When you get back to 
    the challenge ring, activate it.  The map’s populated fishing spots are the 
    normal red circles on the GPS. There are slightly more than 18 fishing spots, 
    adding a little room for error.  They don’t disappear after you’ve caught a 
    fish in them.  Stop your boat directly when it’s directly over the fishing 
    spots and make sure your casting ring is green.  Try to set the casting ring 
    to 47-60 feet.  Verify that your catch is recorded in the score above the 
    timer before moving to the next fishing spot.  If not, move the casting 
    ring a few feet.
    
    You’re going to drive in a zigzag pattern starting from the southwest,moving 
    east, stopping at all the fishing spots on the way. Go to the fishing spot 
    furthest south and west.  Catch a fish in the first fishing spot, get in the 
    boat and make your way east, stopping at all the fishing spots on the way.  
    When you get to the east bank, drive north until the south-most fishing spot 
    is at the bottom of the GPS. Drive west, hitting all the fishing spots on the 
    way and repeat.
    
    If you have a hard time, pull up the Fish-o-pedia, North American Lakes, and 
    then Lake Erie.  Draw a rough sketch of a map of the Lake, drive around the 
    lake making circles on your drawing of the fishing spots.  Number them 1-18.

    Unlockable: Men’s character The Arrrr, women’s character Headband
    Recommendation: Pull up your tackle and toggle through your fish to make 
    sure the Monster fish is there.  It will be listed by its name. If not, 
    change the season and time of day.  The Monster fish will be indicated by a 
    blue circle using your GPS or a giant blue fish using the fish finder.
    
    If your Monster fish is not in a fishing spot, your casting ring will turn 
    lime green when it’s above it (it will be lime green if it’s over a fishing 
    spot regardless).  When you catch the Monster fish, the lower left fish 
    information will say its name instead of species, i.e. Dottie the Largemouth 
    Bass will say Dottie.
    
    Troll your boat until your casting ring is around 45 feet and still green for 
    an easy catch.

    Original Floater, small, and 6 pound line.  Cast from your immediate 
    position.  Set the casting ring out to 70 feet and fish from the left, 
    front and right sides of your boat.  You must catch four different fish 
    species, not four fish total.  Pull up your tackle box and toggle through 
    the fish, write them down or make a mental note.  If you catch the same 
    species twice, it will tally the weight toward your total. If one of your 
    first three fish was not a Largemouth Bass, equip any topwater lure to reduce
    the amount of other fish species attracted to your lure.
    
    
    Title: TARGET PRACTICE, LAKE MEAD
    Objective: Cast into more than 20 rings in the time limit
    Time Limit: 7 minutes
    Unlockable: Ranger Z521 Comanche 2008 Wrap

    Time Limit: 10 minutes
    Unlockable: Ranger Z521 Comanche 2007 Wrap

    medium and 30 pound line, any rod and reel. Cast right from where you’re at.
    
    
    Title: RAPALA RUN

    Time Limit: none
    Unlockable: Rapala DT Thug 
    Recommendation:  Listed below are the 5 default Rapala lures you get at 
    the beginning of a new game. Use a small size and 10 pound line for each. 
    Fish from the closest fishing spots to the challenge ring, Largemouth Bass 
    will bite on them all.

    Title: THE IMPOSSIBLE DEAL
    Objective: Catch 30 fish
    Time Limit: 1 hour
    Unlockable: Ranger 621V5 Fisherman 2009 Wrap
    Recommendation: Equip the Shallow running Rapala Original Floater, small, 
    and a rod and reel with the shortest casting distance, 10 pound line. Drive 
    to the nearest fishing spot.  Initiate Attack and Flip it as much as 
    possible. Move to a new fishing spot if you reel in with no bite and nothing 
    following your lure.
    
    You need to reel in a fish every 2 minutes.  Set the casting ring to around 
    45 feet.   Most fish won’t bit on your lure for 15 seconds after it’s in the 
    water. That equates  to 9 feet if you’re constantly reeling in.  If the fish 
    is hooked within 33 feet of  the boat, it’s going to drag the line out to 34 
    feet regardless of how close to the  boat it was hooked. At 47 feet out, I 
    should have a fish hooked by 38 feet, it won’t  drag the line out and it 
    gives a little leeway.  Make sure the casting ring is green  when casting 
    into a fishing spot.
    
    
    Title: FINAL CATCH

    unsuccessful.
    
    Method 2: Use Jack the Northern Pike sighted last summer in the evening, 
    Murphy the Muskellunge sighted this summer in the morning or Blaze the 
    Striped Bass sighted last spring in the morning.

    ----------MONSTER FISH-----------------
    
    If you are doing a free fishing challenge and get a message that says 
    you have to  
    unlock a monster fish for this lake, you haven’t met the requirements. 
    You must have 1. caught a fish of the species you’re going for (in any lake, 
    tournament or free fishing, i.e. you must have caught a Largemouth Bass to 
    unlock Dottie the Largemouth Bass) or 2. check your Fish-o-pedia under North 
    American Freshwater Lakes and scroll down the description information, 
    monster sightings are at the bottom. Write down or make a mental note of 
    the season and time of day (it varies by game).  Restart Free Fishing and 
    change the season and time of day to match the monster sighting information.  
    To see if you have unlocked a Monster fish, go to the main menu, select 
    Extras then Unlockables.  Scroll down to the Monster fish information if 
    there is a red padlock to the left of the fish name, you haven’t caught that 
    species yet.
    
    While in the lake of your target Monster fish, pull up your tackle and 
    toggle through your fish to make sure the Monster fish is there.  Monster 
    fish will be represented by a blue circle using the GPS or a giant blue fish 
    using the fish finder.  
    
    It will be in a random location when you enter the lake.  
    You may have to drive around every inch of the lake since sometimes the 
    fish indicators don’t show up until you’re right on top of them.  Once 
    caught, it will move to a new location and another blue indicator will mark 
    it.
    
    If your Monster fish is not in a fishing spot, your casting ring will turn 
    lime green when it’s above it (it will be lime green if it’s over a fishing 
    spot regardless).   When you hook the Monster fish, the lower left fish 
    information will say its name  instead of species, i.e. Dottie the Largemouth 
    Bass will say Dottie.  Troll your boat  until your casting ring is around 45 
    feet and still green for an easy catch.
    
    If doing the Monster Hunt Challenge, you will only be rewarded for the first 
    Monster fish you catch.  Catching the rest rewards nothing.
    
    There are 30 Monster fish, one for each type of fish in the game.  The fish 
    appear in  the monster sightings at the beginning of a new game, even if you
    haven’t caught that fish type.

    MINI GUIDE TO CATCHING ALL 30 FISH SPECIES AND MONSTER FISH
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are 30 fish species and 30 Monster fish, one for each species. 
    There will be no more than four fish species present at one time during
     Free Fishing, and one Monster fish. Adjust the time of day to find new 
    fish species, or time of day and season for Monster fish.  There are seven 
    lakes. Each lake has a difficulty level.  Lake Minnetonka is the easiest and 
    gets progressively harder as you scroll toward Lake Mead.  Weather and reel 
    type are a matter of preference.  Season only matters to Monster fish.  
    
    During Free Fishing, equip a Shallow running Rapala Original Floater medium 
    and 30 pound line (unlock tier 3 of Rookie Season) unless otherwise 
    specified, any rod and reel.  Drive to the nearest fishing spot using the 
    GPS.  
    
    Some fishing spots are prevalent with a certain fish species than others, 
    you may have to move.  Try fishing spots in the middle of the lake as well 
    as along the bank and in high grass.
