Am level 18 now and haven't spent a single penny on the game so it's definitely doable.
If you snap your lure off, or if your fish runs too far, you gotta buy new stuff! I don't wanna wait for a day or two to keep playing! That's another thing these devs always do, and I hate that, too! They're known for doing that. Any bigger fish require better tackle, and it's gonna cost you real money for it. All I'm saying is that's the way I feel about it and I don't want games that constantly want to drain my wallet like that.
