To get started in Fishing
Champion, press the START button on the main game screen. It is
located on the right hand side directly above the fish. You will
then be shown a screen that describes the items listed on the HUD.
They include total score, the ability to mute or adjust the music level in
the game, open instructions, money earned from catching fish, open the
map, open the fish list, select your bobber, the number of worms that you
have left in your inventory, a picture of the fish that can be caught for
bonus points (i.e., extra cash) and the casting power meter.
If you would like to become
the fishing champion, there are a total of six fishing holes. Each
hole has a cash catch goal. Complete each fishing hold tournament by
earning the cash catch goal. Each fish in the game has a different
cash value, so you may want to focus on the high dollar fish to
maximize your earnings.
To cast the rod, click on it
and hold down the left mouse button. You will then see your casting
power meter activated which displays how far your rod will cast out into
the water. Release the mouse button to cast the hook. After
casting, hold down the mouse button to reel in the hook (and hopefully a
fish!). You want to make sure to reel your hook close to a fish.
If they don't see your bait, you will have no chance in catching them.
When the fish glows red, they are interested in your bait, so do not move
your hook at all. When a fish glows green, the fish is waiting to
see if your bait will move so move it just a little bit. If you move
it too little or too much at this point, the fish will likely lose
interest. When the fish bites your hook, it will glow yellow.
That is when it is time to reel it in. Make sure you jerk the
fishing rod back and forth across the screen to sink the hook in properly.
If you fail to do this, your bait (and the fish) will be gone.
