Before monsters appear you must catch that type of species first, i.e. once you catch a largemouth bass, Dottie will appear, etc. If you have 'messages' turned on, it will notify you when a monster fish is unlocked.

In Free Fishing, select the lake and make the adjustments listed below [leave everything else random]. The location of the monsters varies, but it will show on the map as a small blue dot.

I recommend activating the Lake Challenge to catch a monster first, that way you'll get both things done at one time!

Here are the 30 monsters:

Lake Minnetonka:
Dottie [largemouth bass] spring > morning
Largemouth bass are found almost everywhere

Crier [smallmouth bass] spring > evening
Smallmouth bass can be caught in Lake Mead in the morning.

Ludwig [white bass] autumn > evening
White bass are caught in Lake Lanier in the morning.

Lou [lake sturgeon] autumn > morning
Lake sturgeon are caught in Lake Champlain in the evening

----------------------
Lake Lanier:
Arrow [rainbow trout-steelhead] autumn > morning
Rainbow trout-steelhead are caught in Lake Mead at noon

Lighter [white crappie] autumn > evening

Eyesup [flathead catfish] spring > morning
Flathead catfish are caught in Lake Mead at anytime

Amp [white perch] spring > noon
White perch are caught in Lake Champlain in the evening

---------------------
Lake Casitas:
Charlie [brown trout] summer > evening
Brown trout are caught in Lake Champlain at noon

Umbra [black crappie] summer > morning
Black crappie are caught in Lake Mead at noon

Pickwick [sauger] autumn > evening

Thanks very much. I am sure this is going to help alot.
To unlock a Monster Fish, can it be caught in Tournament or does it have to be in free fishing ?

Fish caught in tournaments or free fishing will unlock monsters. I'm not sure however, whether monster can be caught during tournaments. I did all mine in free fishing.

Thanks for the tips, and MEGA props on all your achievements. no offense, but how much time do you put into playing XBOX360. I play XBOX360, PS3 and World of Warcraft. So I don't have a ton of achievements as you can see.

i am not seeing the blue dot on the map showing where the monster is. I have it unlocked also because when i goto my tackle box it is there. i see small yellow dots, bigger yellow dots, and green dots.

I don't think the guide is wrong, but if you can be more specific with the problem you're having perhaps I can help.

Translation (?)
No creo que la guía está mal, pero si puedes ser más específico con el problema que está teniendo tal vez pueda ayudarte.
