Catching fish?

[Post New]by darkhalf01 on Aug 15, 13 5:48 PM
I've tried every possible combo on the catching fish quest and haven't caught one. Any suggestions?

This is just a matter of not holding the click down too long or too short. Keep the bars in the green zone.

when you are trying to catch a fish does it just come up out of the water by itself if you keep it for so long on the green? It seems impossible

I have been trying for 3 days now and have had no luck with fishing. I am getting bored with this game and angry I spent my money just to abandon it so early!

I'm not even getting a green area. What am I doing wrong?

You click when it says strike and then just keep clicking while watching the bar so it doesn't go past the red line

I'm not getting a green bar either, just a little fish above a pink bar, I keep the fish between the two red lines but I still can't catch the fish. How come I can't even see a green bar.

I can't believe it, but after many, many tries, I finally got it. I hope I can describe the procedure well enough to help someone.

Click on Cast

When Wait appears -- just wait

When Strike appears, you'll be able to see a rolling bar between two upright posts. Don't hold (the tutorial instruction is misleading); just click rapidly enough to keep the rolling bar inside the two upright posts.

Goodness, this is very hard to describe, but once I got it, I never missed.

I wish you all the best of luck --

DK

Even trying the above instructions was no help at all. If there's no way to get past this without clicking forever this will be a no-buy for these arthritic hands.

Did anyone manage to catch any fish? Or is there a glitch?

To catch fish, when it says "Strike" you quick click constanly but keep the line in the green. If you click too fast or slow, you won't catch. Some of the "Strikes are shorter than others. Keep clicking until the little fish symbol above the green line gets to the right hand sid Easy once you do it a few times. Again, keep clicking but don't go out of the range until the little fish gets to the right.

I was stuck on this as well! I actually ran out of bread and had to start the WHOLE game again as I was unable to make any more bread.

This works! Thanks, DK.

Thank you so much ... I had already given up on this game

almost at the end of the game I discovered that on the 3rd island you get a fish every time you send the small boat out. That REALLY helped

While you are clicking on the mouse to keep the bar in the green (about 2-3 times per second, I find) you'll see a little white spot (tiny fish, I thik) moving from left to right just above the bar. When this spot reaches the right-hand bar, you've caught the fish. Sometimes you get the fish earlier

Okay, I'm ready to try everyone's suggestions now that I know not to HOLD it like the game says to do! How frustrating! Do I have to start over? It says I need bread to fish yet I can't go forward to make bread until I fish! It doesn't seem they thought this through very well...

Hi - no you don't have to start over. You need to make Bread (from Flour and Water) in your Kitchen before you can Fish. You have to buy the Flour from your Car.
