I'd like to add a few tips to the other solutions that were not mentioned and may save you much headache.

As mentioned:
-Do this only after you've completed the final fishing quest for the Hyneria
-The dock I used is near the very top right part of the map. At the right of the Desert where the sandstorm is. It's right on the edge of the map and hard to spot but walk along the right side of the map where the sandstorm is to find a path down to the dock
-Bring a decent amount of sardines (about 20-25 should be safe)

Watching the Fishing Rod:
-Not many people notice, but the way the rod dips determines the type of fish caught. If you try to catch every long dip of the rod you will end up with a huge amount of cans/buckets/etc.

Fishing the Rhizodont made easier:
-When the rod dips short once followed by a dip long it's a can/bucket. To avoid wasting bait or catching a bucket simply wait until after the long dip and pull the rod back in. You will 'not even get a nibble' but at the same time won't lose your bait!
-What you are looking for is two short dips followed by two more short dips followed by a long dip. I have tested this successfully 3 times and can nearly guarantee it will be the Rhizodont on the line.

The fight:
-The Rhizodont puts up a very tough fight that may take 2-3 minutes. Be careful though, this fish loves to take your bait when it's near low stamina. The fish darts back and forth very quickly so be quick with your switches. The sweet spot for this fish is also very slim and often you will find you're not decreasing the stamina. The best tip I can give is to watch the fish position to the rod (not the characters actions). Move the stick as the fish moves from the rod orientation. It may take a few tries, but it can be done.

Good luck!
