Been playing about 40 hours since in the last 2 weeks, and I have a few beginner questions. First, what is the right trigger button for? I notice that I pull the rod to the right when I pull it, but I have no idea when I would want to do that instead of just using the thumbstick to pull the fish to the right. Second, how do I know when I want to change the angle of my strike? I usually just pull back on the thumbstick and I either get a perfect strike or a bad one. I imagine this is due to my angle of pulling back. Third, how long should I wait to pull the stick back for a strike. I have been experimenting with going from an immediate pull back and then using a slight delay, and I still get mixed results. Fourth, are the offline tournaments meant to be harder than just a casual fishing trip or tournaments in career mode? I noticed I have a lot tougher of a time in the offline tourneys. Fifth, I notice you cannot ready your cast when facing the back of the boat, but you can turn that direction when you actually cast. Is this meant to stop you from casting off the back? I usually stop my boat when I'm over a few bigger fish and then cast off the back instead of turning the boat around. I think that's all for now. Love the game, as you can tell by my hour count.
