While playing in tournament mode, you can get a lure in Farmington by the Waterfall. It is to the right of the waterfall, on the ledge. It is in the beach ball. You must catch the beach ball and reel it in. The best way to do this is to use a bottom lure, let it sink to the bottom behind the ball. You must line up with the ball first. Reel in slowly behind the ball and the remote will vibrate and pull up like you are going to catch a fish. Reel it in, and you will receive the shad lure. Its tricky, but take your time, you will get it.
Go to Hallstatt in March. The weather needs to be sunny. When you get there, get closer to the island straight in front of you. Aim at the second pole. Use a deep lure, and cast. Keep reeling until you hear the ladie say "Did you see that?" Then you stop reeling and there should be a big Albino that usually weighs in the 20's. You could end the tournament soon and just weigh that one in, but it's spring and fishing is really good. Happy fishing.
Go to Central Park. Go to the small bridge and cast to the left at the cut in of the land. Get in front of the cut in and cast. You will eventually run into a huge octopus.
