If there was one thing that was missing from the Windows 8 platform of games it was a fishing simulator! That was until Field & Stream Fishing came along that is. Field & Stream offers three lakes initially (you can purchase more if you wish). All of them are similar, but with different fish. The game has you casting, dangling your bait, then striking to hook fish. Once hooked, you enter a mini game which involves you swiping left, right and down, and reeling in to land your fish. Each lake has five spots you need to fish and you need to complete all goals in each spot to finish the lake.

There is an optional upgrade to unlock more lures. The price of this has varied since release, but is normally around $5. There is a lure called 'Target Master' which will mean you cast perfectly almost every time, making this game much easier. I would highly recommend purchasing this, as getting "bulls-eye" casts is part of many of the goals and three achievements.

Abbreviated Walkthrough
It is totally up to you which way you play through the various spots on the lakes. More spots will open up as you complete goals. You can jump back and forth between different lakes or finish one lake completely before moving on to the next. For the purposes of this walkthrough, we will do the lakes in order.

New Melones
Your first cast will net you And So It Begins. Play through the various spots and finish all the goals. Finishing your first spot, you will catch a legendary fish, unlocking Truly Legendary. You will unlock Welcome to the Everglades after a few goals are complete, but continue working through New Melones first. When you get to a spot named North Bay you will be introduced to monster fish. Use this spot with the relevant lures to unlock Hooked It, Cranked It, and try for Monster Outing. Don't worry if you struggle for this here as some of the goals in the other levels will require you to catch at least three monster fish. This lake is the easiest to go for the three bulls-eye achievements. This is much, much easier with the 'Target Master' lure. It can get you a bulls-eye pretty much any time in any lake, but is the easiest lake if you don't have it as the spots are less obstructed and there is no wind. Once you have completed all goals you will unlock New Melones Pro.

Everglades
Equip the lure you just unlocked and catch a monster fish for Jigged It and then continue to complete all spots. There is a fish in this location called a Tarpon. These are heavy fish that are good for points. This is a good spot to try for the point related achievements. There are achievements for 15k, 20k and 25k points. Finishing this lake will unlock Everglades Pro and unlock a new lure.

Torch Lake
Go ahead and equip your new lure and catch a monster for Spooned It. Continue to complete all spots for Torch Lake Pro and then use the new lure you unlocked to catch another monster for Grubbed It.

Mop Up
You should have everything unlocked now! If not, continue to fish at your leisure until you have it done.

Well there we have it. Fishing. To be honest a totally unnecessary game that few people were really screaming for, but it is not too bad. It is pretty monotonous, but is a pretty easy and stress free 200 , especially if you purchased the extra lures.

And So It Begins5
Complete your first cast 

This will be the first achievement you unlock. It will pop as soon as you cast for the first time.

Hooked It5
Catch a monster fish with the hook 

You will need to catch a monster fish with the 'Master Caster'. This is in the top left corner of your bait box. The first place you can catch monster fish is North Bay in New Melones (if you aren't skipping ahead). To increase chances of spawning a monster, try to be as accurate as you can as the nearer the bulls-eye.

Cranked It5
Catch a monster fish with the crankbait 

You will need to catch a monster fish with the 'Speed Reeler'. This is on the top row, second from the left, in the bait box. The first place you can catch monster fish is North Bay in New Melones (if you aren't skipping ahead). To increase chances of spawning a monster, try to be as accurate as you can as the nearer the bulls-eye, the better the chance.

Jigged It5
Catch a monster fish with the jig 

You will unlock this lure after completing all goals in New Melones. The lure is called 'Target Trainer' and is in the middle on the top row. You can either go back and catch another monster there or use it in a different location. See Cranked It or Hooked It for more information on how to catch monster fish.

Spooned It5
Catch a monster fish with the spoon 

You will unlock this lure after completing all goals in the Everglades. The lure is called 'The Fighter' and is second from the right on the top row. You can either go back and catch another monster there or use it in a different location. See Cranked It or Hooked It for more information on how to catch monster fish.

Grubbed It5
Catch a monster fish with the grubtail 

You will unlock this lure after completing all goals in Torch Lake. The lure is called 'Bully' and is on the far right on the top row. You can either go back and catch another monster there or use it in a different location. See Cranked It or Hooked It for more information on how to catch monster fish.

Truly Legendary5
Catch your first legendary fish 

Each fishing location will have a series of goals. Three are available from the start and the fourth will unlock when you have completed the first three. Once you have completed the fourth one, you will unlock the goal of catching the legendary fish. Accuracy is the key, if you hit the bulls-eye or close to it, the legendary fish will almost definitely spawn. Catching them is pretty simple, just do what you would normally do. This will come quite early.

Good Outing5
Get 15,000 points in one outing 

See Perfect Outing.

Bullseye5
Get your first bullseye 

A bulls-eye is obtained when you cast into the center of the target. If the target says 75, then when casting try to get the slider around three quarters of the way down. Of course adjust this amount if the target says more or less. Make sure when you are pulling back up to be as straight as possible. You can make this a lot easier if you equip the "Target Magnet" lure, as this will hone in on the center, making this task a breeze.

Welcome to the Everglades5
Unlock Everglades 

Unmissable, you will get this while going for the other achievements.

Super Outing10
Get 20,000 points in one outing 

See Perfect Outing.

On Target10
Get 3 bullseyes in one outing 

See Casting Champ.

Welcome to Torch Lake10
Unlock Torch Lake 

Unmissable, you will get this while going for the other achievements.

Monster Outing10
Catch 3 monster fish in one outing 

The first location you can catch monster fish is North Bay in New Melones (if you aren't skipping ahead). You can increase your chances of encountering monster fish using various lures from the tackle box upgrade. The 'Target Master' helps. If you are nearer the bulls-eye, they will spawn more often. 'Monster Spawner' increases the chance of monster fish spawning and 'Lake Specialty' will increase the chance of monsters and specialty fish spawning. If you don't have these lures, it is still not that difficult to get. Just keep fishing and you will get this when your accuracy improves.

Perfect Outing15
Get 25,000 points in one outing 

During each outing, you will receive points for various things. You will get points for accuracy during casting, for hooking fish, and for performing perfect fights. You will receive bonus points for catching fish that are the targets of goals (have a gold coin next to them when you hook them). After you land the fish, you will be given points on the weight of the fish, the time it took to land it, and your fight performance. It is much easier to get this achievement in the Everglades or Torch Lake, as you will generally be catching bigger fish. Just make sure you concentrate on casting accuracy as that is what will lead to more large and monster sized fish.

Casting Champ15
Get 5 bullseyes in one outing 

You will need to hit the bulls-eye all 5 times during one outing for this. Practice will make this much easier, but if you have the "Target Magnet" lure equipped, you can pretty much guarantee the bulls-eye every time. If you don't have this luxury, this is still quite possible, but will require a steady hand and lots of practice. See Bullseye for more information on how to hit the center of the target.

Monster Perfection15
Catch 5 monster fish in one outing 

You will most likely get this in the Everglades or Torch lake. Many of the goals involve you catching three or four of a certain type of monster fish and they will not always appear. Just continue to catch monster fish. This will come easily once you have mastered casting.

New Melones Pro15
Complete all New Melones goals 

These achievements will unlock once you have completed all goals in all fishing spots of the locations. These mostly revolve around catching certain types of fish, certain sizes of fish, or hitting targets. The final goal in each spot is catching the legendary fish. If you do not see the type or size of fish you need, double click the center of the reel to end the cast. If you have completed all necessary goals, you can right click and select 'Weigh In' to finish the session.

Everglades Pro20
