Tighten the drag star to expose the black ratch ring. Press the ratchet ring down towards the star drag as you turn the handle backwards to unscrew it from the crank shaft.

SOURCE: Rapala, problem netting fish

I don't have this game but I did some research on the internet and found a couple of things. One said to press A and then enter the numbers as shown on the screen. And I found this in another place. when the fish is at the boat, if it is 5 lbs or more you have to press a series of buttons as indicated above the circle. but first you have to get the net on the fish icon. Hope this helps !!

SOURCE: dishes smell like fish

   Hi, I've been scanning this for awhile as I have this problem on and off. I have watched what I have been cooking and have come to the conclusion it's to do with eggs.  I always noticed it when we had eggs ( they are fed with ground up fish) so changed to vegetarian  fed  chicken eggs and problem got better, I only notice it now if I use a salad cream or mayonnaise type products with egg added in the ingredients and I hand wash these away from all other items.  I have noticed many comments on hygiene, but if you have this problem you become a cleaning nut trying to get rid of it. I always clean with vinegar and bleach and it did not work with this one. Hope this helps

How to use the floats


Add the floaters to your bait sac to lift off the bottom away from weeds, rocks, and snags and raise bait sacs to fish feeding levels. Replace approximately 25% of bait with floaters.

I need directions on how to reel in a fish


The key is to watch the "fish mood"... watch for a "Yellow Heart" on the top of the screen as you reel in, this means a fish is lured by your bait... When you see this, stop reeling with the "A" button and begin using the control pad... up or down will just bounce the bait... it's a little counter-intuitive to "real" fishing, but if you stop reeling when you see this "Yellow Heart" and simply wait for the fish to swim around your bait, then bounce the bait with the up or down control buttons, the fish will usually take the bait. Then simply reel them in being careful not to reel too fast... using the "A" button, don't let the meter go to high or too low... simply let off the "A" button if the meter gets to high or low... eventually you'll be able to reel them in by pressing and releasing the "A" button. Likewise with the "yellow heart", also watch for a "red exclamation", this indicates the fish is trying to bite the bait. Use the same method simply waiting for the fish. If you never see either of the two fish moods (yellow heart or red exclamation), then you'll need to either change direction of your throws, or change bait. I've conquered a few levels with this method after many hours of not even a bite.

On pft for the ds, how do you actually CATCH the


It took me a while to figure this game out. I didn't even hook a fish for 2 days (about 4 hrs). Simply reeling in the line while glimpses of fish swam by wasn't my idea of a good fishing game. I looked for any reviews that gave me a clue how to play this game. There were NONE. I finally figured out on my own a basic strategy that seems to be working for me. Initially you can only fish in one location, one lake. And the object is to get a total catch of 5 lbs of bass or more. You can see this on the initial screen (it gives you your goal to get to the next level). The key is to watch the "fish mood"... watch for a "Yellow Heart" on the top of the screen as you reel in, this means a fish is lured by your bait... When you see this, stop reeling with the "A" button and begin using the control pad... up or down will just bounce the bait... it's a little counter-intuitive to "real" fishing, but if you stop reeling when you see this "Yellow Heart" and simply wait for the fish to swim around your bait, then bounce the bait with the up or down control buttons, the fish will usually take the bait. Then simply reel them in being careful not to reel too fast... using the "A" button, don't let the meter go to high or too low... simply let off the "A" button if the meter gets to high or low... eventually you'll be able to reel them in by pressing and releasing the "A" button. Likewise with the "yellow heart", also watch for a "red exclamation", this indicates the fish is trying to bite the bait. Use the same method simply waiting for the fish. If you never see either of the two fish moods (yellow heart or red exclamation), then you'll need to either change direction of your throws, or change bait. I've conquered a few levels with this method after many hours of not even a bite. It's a shame this game doesn't give you any of these hints. And even with the catches, the game is still quite lame. Graphics stink, realism is non-existent, and the game is counter-intuitive and though not quite as boring once you start to catch fish, it's still just a bit more exciting than watching paint dry. Hope this helps someone out there that was as lost as I was, and please, do yourself a favor if you haven't bought this game yet... don't.

The only place to get that screen is through a Furuno authorized dealer. The unit is sealed and gas filled to remain waterproof. You're best bet would be to send the unit in to Furuno for repair. You wont save much doing it yourself because the cost of the screen makes up most of the cost of the repair. They will also make sure that all the software is up to date for the new WAAS satellites that recently went on line.

Have you tried adjusting the contrast? On that model I believe you tap the power key while the unit is on and you will see 2 sliding scales on the screen, one for brightness and one for contrast. Up or down arrows select the scale and left or right arrows adjust it. If the contrast and brightmness aren't tied into the power key on that model, they're somewhere in the set up menu.

If adjusting the contrast doesn't help then the screen has most likely failed. This is commonly caused by old age, however repeated exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause premature failure.
