A.K.A. the impossibly big named fish.

I think he means the named fish. The trick is to find out the best bait for the type of fish that you know each named fish is and fish with that. They will only bite when you tempt them with their favourite bait and even then it is rare that they will bite, so the best way to catch them is to keep fishing.

If you complete the quest that the Old Man In the Lighthouse sets you, then the reward you get will give you a slightly better chance of hooking and landing a named fish.

ive caught the big catfish in the easiest pond you can fish in. he put up no fight, and I had no idea I caught him until it showed his name instead of catfish

Year everyones right. Basically, every spot has a named fish. All you do is use the best bait for the popular catch in that area, and I found every time I got the named fish it was a max cast. And it doesn't usually take long, a couple tries and you usally get it.

when you're doing a quest to catch a species of fish, before you complete it you can revisit the lighthouse and the old man gives you a hint, which is almost always what type of bait to use. Furthermore, as soon as you start fishing in a level, the default bait they start you with is usually the best bait to use for the popular catches... Makes sense bc that's what you're meant to fish for in that level.
