    This achievement will require you to go fishing out front of Morning Glory but first go to the public market in Okinawa and buy 10+ shrimp bait just in case you don’t get lucky. Then go back to the fishing rod on the beach in Morning Glory. Keep entering/exiting the mini-game until fish spawn in the 140-150m range (Tuna will only spawn at that range). Cast your lure with shrimp bait ensuring it lands on the fish in that area. Don't touch the line and wait until A appears (it may take a few tries). It appears for less than half a second so be focused on that prompt.
    Once you've hooked the fish, it'll take 2-3 minutes to reel it in. Ensure the line doesn't go above 75% tension and point your rod in the direction the fish is moving (left or right). Just be patient and don't rush it while keeping an eye on the tension meter.
    Also, note the tuna you catch can be used for the sea bream sub-story so I'd recommend hanging onto it until then if you already haven't just paid the 300k for it.

    Conor MageeCan't seem to juggle the tension with the constant turning left and right. Getting frustrated with this one...

    OrpheusDeGrootI have been trying now all afternoon, and I have officially given up. Closest I got was 120 meters. I have tried different methods, but sometimes the tuna just flip flops from left to right without any time for adjustment. I have not been as frustrated with trying to get a so seemingly simple achievement for a long ass time.

    I Ebon Hawk IThis is ridiculously hard. I can’t even hook the tuna after I cast the line. Every single time no matter when I press A, it misses. I’ve tried waiting for the prompt and just pressing A when I see the splash. Neither option is working for me.

    Valnor2Forget this achievement, catching this thing is near impossible even if I can hook it, which 9 times out of 10 i cant even get a bite

    Ashley6200My advice is never to hold down RB, tap the button instead - it makes a massive difference. It doesn't have to be rapid, just a fairly regular rhythm will do the job. What this will do is allow the tension to slowly go down without having to use LB which will lose you progress. Once tension is in the green area you can hold for a while to build the tension up a little, then go back to tapping. Keeping your rod pointed in the same direction as the fish is still hugely important. You can still use LB if things get dicey, but once you get into it you should pretty much never need to.

    LordMakanakiI tried this countless time on the Series X and was never able to hook the tuna. As soon as I switched the One X I got 2 hooks in a row. Also listen for the audio prompt rather than rely on the visual one.

    DouchShnozleAshley6200's advice is by far the best while there is no way to help with the button prompt tapping only rb is by far the best method after switching to that method i did it second try with my first getting to 20m where the tuna goes berserk

    theslatcherFor the button prompt:

    Shortly before the popup your line will get pulled, use it to signal when to press A. Also, you can mash A, as there is no penalty for not doing so.

    Negao DouradoI got my early on chapter 3. Just throw the bait as far as possible and pay attention on the water, it will appears a few milliseconds before the "press A".
    And for fishing, you can hold the button at will, but only if the pole is in the same direction the fish is swimming. ALWAYS place the rod in the same direction where the fish swims.

    SoulyDconteWhat a stressful 5 minutes. I didn't have a problem with the prompt when I realized a second before the prompt there are bubbles coming up from where I cast the line and that's when you need to hit it
