For each location, there are initially 3 goals available. The other 2 are grayed out. You have to complete these goals first to open the 4th, then complete that one to open the legendary fish goal. You have to fulfill the requirement within one fishing session - so within the 5 casts. They are not cumulative across sessions.

It helps to use the right lure for each of the goals. While not all lures are available with the base game, the $1.99 for extra lures was well spent in my opinion to make everything else easier. I used Monster Spawner to get large/monster fish and Target Magnet to get bullseyes. Getting bullseyes guarantees at least one monster and usually other large fish as well so I stayed with Target Magnet for most of the game.

The goals listed are minimum requirements. So, if the goal is for a large fish and you catch a monster, that will count. Same for the target hits - a bullseye will meet any color target goal.

I found the most challenging ones to be catching a specific fish. For those goals, you may have to pass on the first fish (or 2) that come your way. Just make sure you're watching the status box in the upper right corner to make sure there are still fish in the size you need. The top line shows how many monster/legendary fish are in that area, large is next and medium is third. I haven't found catching the bottom ones to be useful to complete goals.

If you want to give up that cast, you can always hit the middle of the reel to autoreel. That saves time if there are no more available fish in the size you're looking for.
If you get enough fish/targets to meet your goal, you can pause the game and select "Weigh In" to end that session. Make sure you tap through the results screen so it registers that you've completed that goal.

For the legendary fish, use the Target Magnet and aim for the fishing spot that has the distance listed in red. I was always able to get the legendary to spawn with a bullseye on the red spot. If you don't attract and hook the legendary, just try again. It usually took me a few tries (and sometimes more than a few) to actually get it hooked. In those instances, autoreel was very handy to get to the next cast.

@PrimeBigTime - thanks for the suggestion. Hope this helps.

EDIT: QuickMythril pointed out that if you use the Speed Reeler, you can cut your playing time.
