The only fish that is larger than 5 kg is the Coho Salmon, which is only found in huts along Coastal Highway.

When catching a fish in one of these huts, a fish will be a Coho Salmon between 1/4 to 1/3 of the time. (The smaller Rainbow Trout is caught with the remainder.) The Coho ranges between 2.8 kg and 5.5 kg, so catching a large Coho is more rare among catches.

The best method of catching a Coho would be to take several Fishing Tackles (Line + Hook), saving your game, fishing for a long period of time, the quitting and loading your save if you do not catch a large enough Coho. It's a question of luck.

Hope this helps! toast
