    RaginCajun928I don't know how to fix it; if you add me on xbox live I can show you the location and tell you the setup in party chat.

    My Setup

    The base rod you start off with
    Sonik 6000 FS Black Reel
    Korda 25 Supernatural Line
    Blowback Rig 4 Gravel hook
    and Korda Dumbell 18mm Bait

    Like the other solutions say i don think the rod,reel,or line really matter.


    So for this achievement i tried the other solutions for several days and i had 2-3 fish get on that could have been the main fish, but they would take me over 200yrds out and i'd lose the fish (Super annoying). So i tried the Peg that is by its self in the fork of the lake and would cast into the cove off to the right only a few yards away in the gravel. And if you are lucky enough the fish will just go to the end of the cove until it wears itself out like the fish i caught did and then boom achievement.

    Also would like to say that this was only the 2nd time i ever used this peg. The 1st time i caught a 65lb Carp. Then quit out after catching a boss fish and caught this fish like 15 minutes later.

    Then literally the next cast this was caught, so the big fish are for sure there, with some luck should get it quick.

    chaotikillaI upvoted because even though it didn't help me it should help others. I managed to catch puma using Haichou Ebisu 11ft, Haichou Specimen Reel, Korda 25 Supernatural line, Korda DF Rig 4, Korda Dumbell 18mm from the peg in the middle of the fork in the lake. Just cast into the little alcove to the right of you. Although using my setup allowed Puma to swim 187 yards away from me and took nearly 45 minutes to reel him in laugh I also recommend this spot for the topcat achievement too as it's prime catfish location

    At 16:00 hours on the upper right peg (farthest NE peg) in the small channel is where Megalodon always shows. If you walk along the channel after 16:00 hours you should see it's tail coming out of the water because it's so huge and the channel is shallow. If you don't see the tail in the water after a few minutes, reload the map.

    When you spawn at that peg just walk slightly right to the little edge that sticks out and cast from there. There is no peg, but one cast at 17-20 yards landing near the spawn sign is all that's needed. Use Korda 4 Silt hook and 18mm Dumbell. I caught him on 3 profiles quick and simple just like that. It will take off into the channel and hit the wall and hang there for about 10 minutes then reel it in. A few of the other boss cats are found there also at the same time that should net the achievement as well. Guaranteed to find it there at 16:00 hours and you will see it swimming before you cast. Super simple.
