Flick Fishing Major Cheat

As we all know, Flick Fishing is highly entertaining and with high replay value. This Easter Egg, is going to solve the problem of line tension with big fish and create very easy landing.

First of all, go to the desired Fishing Spot. (I would go to the Waves Of Doom if I were to catch the Smiling Ingo. Which is a named or monster swordfish.)
Cast normally, then, after you have a bite, quickly select 'Change Location' in the pause menu. Select the Old Pond. You will notice that there is still the tension bar and the Fish Strength bar on the top of your Iphone/Ipod Touch. Cast again. Your will notice that the previous fish is still on your hook!. But it has now NO strength and you will have NO line tension! (Although it will grow when your reel again) Reel in the remaining 15-30 ft. Ta-Da! Heres your monster fish!

Wow. That just worked on a 857 pound swordfish.
This trick is a bit too cheap for me to actually use, but it does work very well.
A simple fix would be not allowing someone to change location when a fish is on the line.

Yes, I know its a little cheap but, When your really trying to get a monster fish such as carpo marx and you always fail in the last moment, its really 'Reliefing' to catch it this way.

on specific game releases
it says right on the front page. This belongs in general game discussion.

on a side note I find it pathetic that first of all you names your account FlickFishingCheatbOt and second of all you need to cheat in an app about fishing.

yeah but your post is not a game, it is an aspect of a game that already has a thread, therefore you did not need to create a new thread just for this in this section. you could have posted this in the general game discussion that would have been fine, as glitch and cheats are often posted there.
