Type "big fish" as your name.
When catching Char: let the lure sit in the Char's mouth a little while before setting hook.
Press X once a fish is hooked and starts to swim quickly to the right. Wait for it to slow down, then reel it in. The fish shouldn't struggle. Note: This technique does not work very well on the lake level, or if the fish arches back to try and pull free. Note: This trick works well in the stream/creek level. Watch for bubbles to appear just before the fish takes the bait. Press Circle + X when the bubbles appear to quickly reel in the line without fear of breaks.
