Hint: Keeping low line tension:
After your tension gets up very high in red, sweep
the Analog-stick in clockwise full circles. If done correctly,
the tension will go down extremely low, allowing you to reel in
big fish. Keep sweeping the Analog-stick to cause the fish
to become tired.
When you have a large fish on your line, or a fish that has a
lot of energy, tap your Reel button at a slow rate. While
doing this, it gives the line just enough time to keep the line
easy, and enough time to hold on to the fish without it snapping
your line. This should work for any fish of any size, no matter
what type of challenge. If the line gets very tense, release it
and let it go into the yellow zone for about a second. Then, keep
tapping it at a slow rate.
Hint: Knock armored head off in Palace
Use the Deep Crank or Sonic bait and cast it to the
left of the palace's front door. Reel it all the way in until
it sinks to the point where it is directly behind that armored
body's head. Keep reeling it in, and if your bait hits the back
of the armored head, it will fall off.
