This game is a pretty easy 1000
; the biggest drawback is the quantity of quick challenges. Once again the difficulties do not stack.

Introduction:
Welcome to Rapala Fishing Frenzy. This game has only 9 achievements and can be done in a long afternoon.
  This game requires one Career playthrough in each difficulty and 30 Quick Challenges. NOTE: This game has very long load times.  I highly suggest you download it to your HDD to cut down on wait time.

Step 1: Tournaments
Jump right in. Start with the Easy Cup, following the achievement guide to unlock the Normal Cup. Completing that unlocks the Hard Cup. Be sure to follow each stage requirements exactly to avoid an unnecessary do-over. Pay attention to the Fish Connoisseur achievement that requires you to catch 15 different types of fish DURING tournaments. Keep track of this one carefully, use the extra time at the end of each stage to catch these fish – see the achievement guide for more details.   Overall if you're doing things right you should be able to get Fish Connoisseur by the end of the Easy Cup.

Step 2: Quick Challenges and Mop Up
Do the Quick Challenges. There are a number of different lakes to choose from here. Each lake has 3 different challenges that appear randomly. You do not have to do them all, you can do the same lake 30 times.   While you're doing these challenges it's also a good time to get all the achievements for catching a certain balance of fish.  Check this post HERE for what each lake's quick challenges focus on.  I suggest you finish catching Largemouth, Smalmouth and Stripped in that order  Once you have all three of those achievements it's time to finish the spotted bass as well as finish these quick challenges. To do this select Lake of the Ozarks and only accept the challenge that asks you to catch a 5 star spotted bass.  You will catch this bass on your first or second cast.  If you don't get this challenge, simply restart the lake until you do.  Simply repeat this challenge as many times as you need to complete your 30 challenges.

Step 3: Mop up 
If at this point you are still lacking some fish for the achievements, open fish or quick challenge until you meet the required balance.

Tips & Tricks for Tournaments & Challenges

 

* Use the default lure

ALL fish can be caught using the default lure, but some events require you to change to a specific one [The Shad Rap lure in ONLY found in the 0 ft depth menu]. If you have to change it:

 

1. When standing on the boat but not fishing, press to open the menu.

2. Use and to select the kind of fish. [optional since all lures work]

3. With [up/down] select the depth you want to fish. [use the default]

4. Use [left/right] to select the lure type.

5. Press to select the color options. [optional]

 

*Stay where you started

1. Most, if not all the fish you need can be caught from the starting location if you use Attract.

2. If you're having trouble finding the fish you need, while standing on the boat waiting to fish press to bring up the lake map, highlighting the "Hot Spots" around the lake where you WILL find the fish you need for the specific event. 

 

* Manage your time.

Especially critical in the harder events / challenges. [I have lost too many challenges on time!]

1. ONLY use Reel-In Boost, Ariel Boost and Drag Up/Down combos, except when going for a high score. If you use most other combos it will take longer to land the fish.

2. Be sure to either cut the line, click , if you've hooked the wrong type or are making a long retrieve, or do not Sure Bite the fish to begin with.

3. After you have met the event requirements, use the remaining time to go for the Fish Connoisseur achievement (do not use Attract).

 

* Getting high scoring fish

Having trouble with those 15,000 point challenges? Here's what to do.

Points are gained by successful and unbroken combo streaks. The higher the level the longer and harder the button sequences and the more points you'll gain. You'll also get a small (100-250) bonus for the star reputation/size of the fish. Using this method I regularly catch 2200 - 4000 point fish.

 

1. Make a long cast (100+'). Although not critical it will allow a few more combo's in the last 20 feet.

2. After you do the Attract sequence, let the lure rest a while. More often than not the fish you're looking for will bite after a successfully Attract.

3. When reeling in, TAKE YOUR TIME. The longer the fish is in the water, the higher points you'll get. I found a pattern that really works for me.

 

> Stay out of the red. When retrieving I'll stop and let line out. eg: I use until the tension meter is almost to the red, then I use both and (going against the direction of the tension) until the meter almost hits the middle. At this point switch back to only to retrieve. This will keep you out of the red and seems to bring on multiple combos.

 

> Don't miss the combos. Breaking a string seems to really delay combos from reappearing. You especially want the Time Warp, Old Sage and Fish Hero. These give the fish energy and add time to the fight.

 

> Size doesn't matter. The difference in bonus between a 2 and 5 star fish is small (150 +- points), unless the fish is not legal and then nothing counts. I've thrown back too many 2200+ points fish because they were not legal .

 

* What fish count?

1. Only legal fish count toward the achievement totals. If it says it's not legal and you have to let it go on the summary screen, it will NOT count.

2. If you caught a fish that does not count toward event / challenge goals i.e. catch Smallmouth Bass over 12", the fish WILL count so long as it is legal.

3. If you fail an event / challenge all the fish you caught will NOT count. Bummer!

Quick Fishing Expert50
Successfully complete at least 30 Quick Fishing Challenges. (3) 

 

Complete 30 Quick Fishing Challenges. These challenges are much like the individual events in the tournaments. You have to return the one of the seven lakes again to do another challenge. You can keep returning to the same lake and doing only the challenges there to get the achievement. Once you get the hang of the game you'll not have too many problems here. Unfortunately after each challenge you have to go back to the Main Menu, enduring seemingly endless load screens. Good times!

 

I have now played through this game twice and both times my achievement came after 27 challenges.
