Send your line deep

While your hook travels deeper into the depths, you'll need to tilt back and forth to avoid fish. Helpful items such as the toaster (pictured here) give you an extra chance to sink deeper by providing an electric shock to a fish instead of catching it. With your toaster used up, the next fish you touch will be caught, moving you to the fish-catching phase of the game.

Catch as many as you can

On the way back up, you'll need to tilt to catch as many fish as you can. You'll want to avoid jellyfish because each one takes away from your cash total at the end.

What do we do with fish? We shoot them!

Ridiculous Fishing is ridiculous for a reason. Once you've reeled in your haul of fish, they are flung into the air where you'll blast away at them with one of the game's many weapons.

Check your tablet for upgrades

The tablet is where you view the game menu. Here you can access the store, look at fish you've caught in Fish-O-Pedia, check the latest messages on Byrdr, and access the map.
