Most of the campaigns are easy to complete and you should not have any difficulty doing them.

• The Tutorial
• Capt. Greenhorn
• Duel
• Season 4
• Bonanza
• Full Career
• Slim Pickings
• Stormy Seas
• Underdog

I think that Season 4 was the hardest and suggest saving that one for last till you have your mini games down pat. The crew that you use does not affect the total amount of money from crabs just the amount you keep for yourself. So if you have a all veteran crew you bring in less money and it may affect what boats you can buy in a couple of the campaigns.

I used the following crew though most of the campaigns: Neal (retrieving), Lenny (Sorting & Repair), Freddy (Unloading & Sorting), Lynn & Jonathan(Setting & retrieving when Neal was tired).

The most import thing when you are going to be playing is to try and get bonuses. It is important to fish in areas that are ½ crab and above but the stringing together bonuses is where you will get the extra cash you will need. When going for bonuses the crew will have stamina bars. The high the bar level for a crewman increases the amount of you have to get the next item in your streak. Any bars that are red decrease the crewman’s ability in maintaining streaks.

Setting: Try and get at least 10 pots set in a row and you will get at least 10k bonus.

Retrieving: This mode is the least bonus giving. You will need to get at or above 20 in a row to get over a 10k bonus.

Sorting: This is a high bonus mode. Try to get around 16 or better which is not hard to do with a person 4 bars or more. You can get a bonus in excess of 20k if you do it right. Easiest to get bonus in Opilio season. Try and get the crabs that are the least off the table then go to town on the ones left. Always save two crabs at the end to help and extend the bonus while the new pot is dropping.

Unloading: Always do unloading with a crew member that has at least 4 bars or better and is rested with none of the bars missing. Avoid the crane and get 30 or more and the bonus is high. I think my highest bonus with a streak of 85 at one point was over 80k.

Some general tips:
• Try to repair every time you go to port. Be sure that the port you go to can repair your boat.
• Pots are best left in the water for 40 hours but sometimes pulling them at 30 hours is a not a bad idea in heavy crab population areas.
• Don’t leave your pots in the water to far past 40 hours.
• Rest your crew for a couple of hours sometimes helps out a lot.
• Don’t unload crabs in hurricane weather the crane and pot swing a lot faster.
