In the fishing minigame of Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, you pay 10 rupees to play, get 5 back if you catch a small fish (net loss of 5) and get 20 if you catch a large fish (net gain of 10).
Now, I've managed to catch the large fish on the bottom left, but I now want to get the large fish in the hole on the right.
The fact you get a heart piece when you do is completely irrelevant ♫
However, no matter how I try to get the timing right and no matter how short I throw the reel (by holding right during the process), I can't just seem to get past the three small fishes. I've also tried going for the leftmost fish and then moving horizontally, but the other large fish won't let me do that.
