There are 70 fish althogether in these games, and every time you hit a milestone you will get a new colour of Leather Jacket.

You can start fishing after you have completed The Big Heist, when Victor has given you the Fishing Tackle. Fishing is required for some missions, such as First Fishing.

How to fish[edit]

First you need to be somewhere with a Fishing Pier. In some levels there is only one, whereas in others (like the Polar Fields) there may be many of them, and different fish can usually be caught at different piers. When you go to the end of a Fishing Pier, the words Go Fishing will come up on screen. Press A button to start fishing.

Your cat or dog will throw a fishing line into the water. The float may bob a few times, showing that a fish is biting it. When the fish is hooked, you need to pull up on the Wii remote. Then a metre will appear at the bottom of the screen with a bar in it. The bar represents the fish, and you need to continuously pull up on the Wii remote to reel it in. Try to keep it in the middle of the metre; if you pull too hard the line will snap, pull too soft and your fish will get away. You can see how much longer you need to pull by looking at the other metre in the top left-hand corner of the screen. Depending on the size of the fish, the bar may be bigger or smaller, and bigger fish are harder to pull in as it is harder to get your level of pull right.

As the types of fish come in all sizes, including the same kinds, it is impossible to tell which fish you've caught before you've actually caught it. If you have decided you want to exit, pull up on the wii remote, but this will only work before the fish has taken the bait.


Fish[edit]

In the Magic Encyclopedia, you can find a list of all the fish in the game. Fish you haven't caught yet will be black, and if they can be caught in places you haven't been to then instead of an area under the name of the fish there will be "???". Make sure the fish you just caught appears in the Magic Encyclopedia before sending it to the Aquarium. If you send it right away, it may not register.

Fish List[edit]

This list shows what levels a fish can be caught in. If a level has multiple piers, but the fish can only be caught at certain piers, then that pier is stated in the parentheses following the level name.
