Catching Fish is the 2nd of 3 parts to playing Ninja Fishing on the iPhone. Catching Fish begins after you first grab a fish or treasure chest when doing Part 1: Dropping Line. The object of this second part of Ninja Fishing is to catch as many fish as you can as your line is reeled back in. At the beginning, your hook only holds 25, so if you max out your line will suddenly be very speedily reeled in. You can upgrade the hook to hold 35 and then 50.
To Catch Fish you tilt the iPhone side to side just like when you are Dropping Line, but now you are trying to get the hook in the mouth of as many fish as you can. For the most part, the lower you get the more valuable the fish are. One new kind of fish starts appearing about every 50m and certain fish will disappear after you get too deep for it.
Remember to watch out for the mines on the side when going back up from below 300m. They will blow up your hook and you will lose all the fish catch. This actually can be a quick way to restart if you are going for the elusive Giant Squid and do not get deep enough before catching a fish.
There are a total of 22 different fish to collect in Ninja Fishing. There is only one Giant Squid and it is found near the bottom when of your max line length of 800m. Beware, that sometimes it ends up with its mouth off screen when you get down to it, so you might have to get down to the depth multiple times before you catch it.
