Quick Challenges the Quick Way.

Well I say quick thats not really true but this way is quicker.
Play lake of the Ozarks.
only play if it is catch a 5 star bass in under 12 minutes.
you will catch this fish every time on your 1st or 2nd cast.
as soon as you attract it will drift right ( if not cut the line and cast again).
the fish is always 5 stars and easy to drag in.
this takes about 90 seconds to complete.
the other 2 challenges on this lake take 8 minutes each so when you reload the lake if it is not the 5 star challenge just quit back to the main menu.
reload until you get the 5 star challenge
I was getting the right challenge about 45% of the time.
I know the loading times are a pain but this way is still much faster.
and belive me by the time you get to the challenges you will want to save as much time as you can.
just a note as well I had to do 30 not the 27 as said in the guide.

Good stuff, I'm doing this and well on my way.
Thanks for the info

You can just hit restart and it will eventually give you the five star spotted bass mission.

this is an awesome strategy. All I have left to do right now is the challenges and catching the 25 spotted bass. This way I can work on both of them at the same time and hopefully send this back to gamefly soon

Hey. I was also worried about pressing "retire" after finishing the challenge. But I can confirm it doesnt cancel out the achievement.So dont worry about pressing retire.

Thanks for the post, it helped a ton!! A good way to get these even faster is...if you don't get the 5 star challenge, just hit start and select restart challenge. This will change the challenge almost every time and will save you those crazy long loading times!! Hope this helps!

Glad I found this. Made this final mundane achievement go pretty quick. I remember playing this challenge in hard mode I think. Got the fish right away in that one too, but would have never thought that it would also be on of the 'quick challenges.'

Final note, I too had to go a complete 30, no luck with popping early @ 27.

Your'e the only person thats made me realise about install not being an option when this game first came out... But still there are people in 2011/12 complaining of loading times. To me this is quick, it is installed but CoD maps take longer to load and im usually first in on those so its certainly not a fact of me being in some time warp. (you can tell if you are first in before anybody goes nuts, people under you are loading after, thats why you don't always get xxx has joined the game for every single person, not to mention im usually hosting with my connection...)
