Romantic Fishing

A screenshot of part of the Romantic Fishing sidequest

Romantic Fishing is a side quest in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Link has to find Joanne on Bannan Island, then catch a Loovar, a Toona, and a Skippyjack to get the Big Catch Lure, so that he can catch Rusty Swordfish, and finally find the Neptoona to get a Heart Container.

How to Fish

When a fish shadow is observed beneath Link in the ocean, select 'Fish' under the menu screen. Follow the on-screen directions for when to pull by drawing a line backwards on the touch screen. Watch the meter while pulling; when it reaches a high green level, make circles on the touch screen. Once the meter is in the red, pull back and maintain as straight a line as possible.
