At first found this game nearly impossible, but then discovered that if you play with 2 people (one to reel and one to hit the letters) it can be hours of fun! Partner up and see what happens!

If you people can`t catch a fish then you suck...I beat the game after a couple of days and I liked it. Here`s what I suggest you do:

1. If you are trying to catch fish at night, use the right lure.
2. Save up for good equipment first, I suggest you get the fiberglass pole first.
3. Buy bait. It will get you a lot more fish.
4. When raising stats, keep in mind that haggling gets you discounts and better prices for fish.
5. Be patient.

That was completely frustrating in the beginning and it sucked up several hours that I`ll never get back but I finished it! And it was pretty fun!

I was reeled in with the Lovecraft reference, and stayed for the gameplay. Challenging in the beginning, but absolutely addicting! For those who had little success, well, same here in the beginning. I usually just sorta try the games that I run across online, but this one I absolutely HAD to beat, it became personal.

For a game to be able to do that, especially from one of those churn-`em-out sites like Armor, Monkey Games, Flashgames247, so on, is very rare. Great game, guys, loved it.

Okay - here are some tips. Put your starting stats into strength and dexterity, not haggling. Buy the advanced bait and, as soon as you can afford it, the advanced day and night lures. To catch fish:
1) cast as far out as you can by holding down the space bar until the arrow is entirely red
2) start reeling in at medium speed
3) you may have to repeat this several times before you get a strike, particularly at low levels
4) when you see "Strike!", IMMEDIATELY hit the space bar. This will hook the fish.
5) Green letters will appear - type them while reeling in the fish. This will keep it on the hook. This also requires some coordination.
6) If the fish "fights" (i.e. the green tension bar starts to fill), STOP REELING by letting go of the mouse button. When the reel stops spinning, you can start reeling back in again.
7) When you`ve caught a few fish, return to town to sell them. TIP: check to see what the "fish of the day (or night)

God dammit you clowns- when the line tension goes up, RELEASE THE MOUSE BUTTON but keep typing the letters, then, as soon as the fish stops swimming away, continue reeling. I beat the game and it isn`t hard once you actually read the instructions.

The line does not constantly snap if you actually release the reel when the tension goes up like it TELLS YOU TO DO.

Got alllll the way to the end of the game. The boss had one hit left in him, I went back to finish him off, and the game glitched and wouldn`t let me do anything....

It may not actually b impossible to catch a fish (I eventually got a couple) but you spend more on bait than you can ever get for catching the fish.

The trouble is the game gets easier the more you play, but you just can`t work through the starting stages.
