Hint: Keeping low line tension

To keep low line tension, sweep the Analog-Stick in clockwise full circles when your tension gets up very high in red. 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 low tension while holding onto 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 armoured head off in Palace

To knock the head off the armoured body in the 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 the armoured body's head. Keep reeling it in, and if your bait hits the back of the armoured head, it will fall off.

Hint: Guessing a fish's weight

Watch as you are reeling in a fish. If it doesn't take long to reel in and adds little tension to the line, it is likely to be a small one. If the tension bar remains at yellow for a long period of time it will be an average size fish. If the tension bar goes red, do not reel it in immediately. Make circular motions with the Analog-Stick and the fish will tire as you reel it in.
