However, this instance of the mini-game requires a little more attention, moreover, the type of fish, its size, and the appearance of the fields also influence the difficulty of the mini-game.
There is also a chance of catching Trophy crabs. However, this is completely random, as such sealife are caught through Pots, and everything depends on your luck.
You can recognize Trophies through yellow background of their icons in cargo. Additionally, when pointing the mouse to the catch, aside from standard information, you'll see a golden cup icon.
