This solution will provide you with the relevant information to help put you in the correct direction for obtaining this achievement. Please note that it will not be a particularly quick achievement to obtain due to the RNG of this game, however if you continue to put the hours into it, you will definitely manage to catch all the boss fish at least once.

As far as I am aware, changing the rod, reel and line to other than what I have listed below is not necessary as these are high spec items used to catch specimen fish - The only items that I believe will need to be changed to reflect catching different species of fish is the bait and rig. I will state the rig and bait used to capture each fish below the relevant names.

MAIN GEAR USED

Rod: Haichou 13ft Extreme
Reel: Sonik Tournos 10000
Line: Korda 25 Supernatural

*If you wish to fast travel to a different location or wish to change your gear without quitting out the game, you can do so by travelling to any of the Foundry Dock sign posts around the map and interacting with them.

LOCATIONS

The following image can be used in conjunction with the information below as a reference to each of the peg locations.

Also I have provided a screenshot to help anybody who is unsure where the gravel patch is. Simply cast out from peg 3 towards the windmill in the background at full(ish) power (you may need to reel in slowly if you go too far but it is there).

CONCLUSION
I found that while playing this game over the course of many many hours, I was in fact able to obtain every single boss fish with the exact same set up in the exact same location. I used the main gear listed at the top of this guide along with Korda IQ-D Rig 4 (Silt) and Korda Dumbell 18mm casting out from peg 3 aiming at different distances, but mostly all between the two cranes in the background. I have provided an image below showing you the general area I am referring to.

I never changed any of the settings in the game, meaning I always started at 07:00 hrs on a Long Day cycle (1 Day = 1 hour). Judging by some of the comments, this has been the most successful and most active spot in the game to catch boss fish.
If you find yourself at any point not catching fish in this spot or you continue to reel in the same boss fish multiple times, then it is recommended that you quit out and reload the map. This seems to reset the fish and should hopefully allow you to catch new ones.

Important Note: If your achievement does not unlock after catching you final boss fish, it has been confirmed that the achievement will actually pop on catching your next boss fish.

I do also recommend checking out the comments if you require additional set-ups on different boss fish etc as there is a great deal of information here that could prove useful.


I hope that this guide can help anybody going for the achievement and I wish anybody going for it the best of luck!
