Fishing Kings question

Really thinking about purchasing this game, can anyone advise what fishes are in this game? Whats considered the best and biggest fish in the game and is it harder to catch?

If its about catching small goldfish then I don't think I will bother :P

It's kinda stupid. Yes, the underwater view is great but just go with Flick Fishing, enough said.

There is really a variety of different kinds of fish from the sea and lakes (look at the app-description) and they fight differently. It is very close to Sega´s fishing games for dreamcast, imo.

And there is a lite version to try, too.

Amberjack, Arapaima, Arowana, Barracuda, Blue Marlin, Bonefish, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Brown Bullhead, Brown Trout, Common Carp, Flathead Mullet, Golden Dorado, Grass Carp, Grouper, King Mackerel, Muskie, Piranha, Rainbow Trout, Salmon, Salmon, Tambaqui, Tarpon, Tench, Walleye, White Bass, Yellow Perch, Yellow Eyed Mullet. Theres two more fishes probably small ones that i haven seen.

The Blue Marlin is probably biggest fish at 72-168 inches in Size and 250-500 in weight. I suppose you could say some are harder to catch than others. At 99 cents you cant go wrong with this game, the gameplay is pretty good and graphics are probably among the best on the iDevice.

Puzzled me too. Switch to a spoon lure. Ignore the recommendation to use a jig lure unless you really enjoy catching brown trout.

Ah yes! My personal absolute favorite fishing game in the whole store! Love this game! I love saltwater fishing especially, and it's hard to find a good one let alone great one around here! This is IT!! Great mechanics, REALISTIC looking fish, and definitely NOT, repeat NOT--- catching goldfish or clownfish, tangs, angelfish, or other aquarium fish! To me, that's the one thing that pisses me off most is when I'm playing a fishing game and the game maker doesn't know any difference between freshwater and saltwater fish so you got bluegill and Marlin and goldfish in the same "lake"! Or sitting there and catching 8 pound clownfish, 7 pound crappie, and 10 pound yellow tangs that take a long time to reel in! Stupid and not realistic at all! That turns me off just-like-that! Know what I'm saying? It's an insult to my intelligence to see that, though I suppose lots of people may not know the difference. In any event, if you like ocean fishing in particular, I highly recommend this game! It's top notch, and I have tried just about every fishing game in the store at one time or another, so, with that being said, get this one!
