Strategy


Bait
Choosing between Soft or Hard bait is the first and most important choice here. Once you choose Hard or Soft bait, then you can fine tune it with Type, Shape, Rig and Color. The bait goes hand-in-hand with location, so do lots of experimenting to find the best combinations.

Line
Gotta have some line to hold that bait!

Location
Eight types of locations and 3 different depths will keep you busy on the lake. Make sure to try different baits with the locations.

Catch
This is your anglers percentage chance to catch a fish. The higher the better!

Presets
You can save your strategy settings so they can be loaded at an instant. This is a great way to save the rigs you find work best to catch monster bass.



Fans
Kids
Kids like to eat, drink and have fun. They won't spend time shopping for fishing equipment. Make sure you have plenty of buildings to keep their bellies full and to keep them occupied.

Teens
Teens like a little bit of everything. They like to eat, shop and experience all the great stuff at the lake.

Adults
Adults spend most of their time shopping and visiting exhibits. But they will get hungry so make sure they'll be satisfied.
