Pro Trick: Wait for the bobber to bob and sploosh three times, signaling a fish biting. Click at the right moment to hook it. Remember, mistimed clicks won’t cost you bait.

Hold left click to reel and manage the bar below; don’t let it deplete. Keep the bobber within the brackets to prevent escapes.
