Fishing is a horrible disappointment. You kind of wish that they didn't even include it. You're given a time limit. About 5 minutes. And you have to catch a fish or a certain weight of fish. And you're done. There is no challenge, cast out, set the hook (it's a quick time event that lasts about 4 seconds) and reel in the catch. It's a waste of time. There is no free fish mode either.
If you want a fishing game, stick with the Rapala games.
Its true the fishing does suck. Its not a huge part of the game. The best thing to do is drop your anchor and back up enough in the boat and press the right trigger twice quickly and the cast goes right to the buoy. Simple and stupid and the time limit is SO ANNOYING!!!
kylewilkie posted... fishing is very simple. not sure how to get the perfect cast achievement... or what constitutes a perfect cast.

To do a perfect cast... all you have to do is cast directly into one of the little pools where it asks you to set a float for marking the fish in the lake. Instead of putting one of those in... just back up about 2 boat lengths... and cast into it. I hope this helps! :)
