The Fishing mini-game starts by displaying a gauge that denotes your pull power and the fish's stamina. Pressing and holding Y moves the fish icon. To catch the fish, you must force the fish cursor to the top of the gauge. If the fish reaches the bottom of the gauge, the mini-game ends and the fish escapes.
