First of all, as of July 15, 2019, fish achievements seem to be popping at 150 fish caught. This may change.

Admittedly, I haven't gotten this yet, and may not play long enough to do so, but here are some tips I've found.

Many fish can be farmed at the Lone Star Lake, which has no travel cost so it is ideal for a lot of early fishing and farming for credits. You also don't have to have a larger keepnet since you don't have to pay to return to the lake.

I'm writing this guide as a potential credit farming guide. Catching bass and pickerel is a great way to get you more credits at little cost. This will help you move to higher level lakes without spending money.

Make sure you buy the Texas Advanced license for 200. Otherwise you'll have to throw back any Spotted Bass you catch, and those are your money fish. You'll also have to throw back your trophy fish.

Among the different types of pike is the Grass Pickerel, which is common near the pier at Lone Star. I stand on the left side, using a spinning rod. This may be the first upgrade to your tutorial telescopic rod. I bought the ValuSpin 6' 3", but have since upgraded to the FeatherLight 6' 3".

You'll need a spin reel, too. I started with a MiniSpin 800, but have since upgraded to an EspiraSlim 1000.

I highly recommend purchasing a casting spoon like the Casting Spoon 14 Oz. #1/0. Gold seems to work well. You have to be level 6 to buy this. I also upgraded my line to Mono .008".

First of all, make sure you fish at the right time. If you need to fast forward time, press X while standing by the lake. I seem to have had the best luck when the bite times are in the early morning.

I've caught about 20 pike so far by standing to the left of the pier. You want to cast across the lake between the lilies (not IN the lilies) and slowly drag (stop & go) your lure back to you. You'll get Spotted Bass bite further out, and Grass Pickerel closer to shore or the pier.

Using this method, I caught 6 fish with 6 casts (4 bass and 2 pike), and another time I caught 3 bass and 1 pike in 4 casts (3 minutes). I uploaded a clip of the 4 catches.

Edit: having spent some time at Lezlí Vila Fishery (120 credit travel cost), I can confirm that is also a great place for Northern Pike with the same spinner setup. I went feeder fishing for carp and used a spinner as a second rod, I was constantly alternating rods. The location I used was The Other Side, right of the spawn across from the house. Throw your line in around 110 feet toward the house and slowly drag it in. I didn't see much drop off in bites throughout the morning until my 22 lb net was full.

Can I guarantee these locations? No way. If you have better locations, please feel free to leave them in the comments.

Hope this helps! toast
