How to catch fish? I never read that in the tutorial. Dunno how you do stuff at all. Not sure what to rate :/

I'm going to have to agree with the comments Tommyboypsp made. The game is really good in many ways, but has some major flaws.
-My first issue is with the main park. The stands have tons of fish in them to sell, but even when the price is dropped to the lowest point it takes forever to sell any of them, and the fish are multiplying too quick to ever sell through.
-The ticket gate seems impossible to control since you can' advertise your park. Also once you start getting in a lot of fish and just set it so you have thousands of fish in the stand it doesn't matter about the gate.
-Money in the game quickly becomes useless once you purchase all the upgrades. Some of the upgrades are just terrible, and others make no sense at all (usually because they look like they're suppose to do something, but seem to do nothing. I'm talking about the radar devices.) Make it so you can upgrade your stands, your tanks, and be able to advertise your park.
-The fishing is also set up wrong since you have to navigate through horribly designed paths that make it very difficult to catch the fish and get it through the small openings. After playing for a bit you realize you don't want to cast your line out as far as you can because all the fish show up at the beginning just as they do at the far end. Get rid of the obstacles and try to design something more user friendly, even if it is challenging at the far end and easier close up. You should also place rarer fish closer to the end and more common fish up close. The rods should also make it so you can cast farther so you can catch bigger and rarer fish (The monster fish should only be caught with better rods)
-There needs to be more upgrades and better descriptions for those items. The goals wanted us to use items that didn't seem to exist.
-I still haven't made it to the ocean because it seems impossible to figure out the graphs you have. They look like they would be straight forward, but they are very difficult to read.
-You should be able to access the upgrade store, the breeding area, and the stands from the same location. The only areas that should be different are the fishing locations.
-Changing your gear should also be allowed within the fishing area instead of having to leave it each time.
While fishing it seems most of the fish just want to "Swim" down (Swim is a subjective word since all they seem to do is fall instead of trying to swim back). Instead of having all those obstacles maybe a tension meter would be better. Have the fish trying to swim back and you have to have a strong enough rod in order to handle the strain. This would also make it harder to catch the rarer fish further out without having the upgrades.

Overall, the game has the right concepts, it just needs some fine tuning in order to become a great game.

Have mercy on index fingers!! Make it so we don't need to click to set big amounts in quick stock: Put a slider or make it so we can keep the button pressed plz!

Nice concept of using flappy bird controls. imo, fits much better to fishing then flying!

Metal Jig seems to be the red bait
Meranti rod, the 2nd rod (meranti is a kind of redish wood)
Super rod... probably the 3rd? (tried the 4th and it wasn't that)

When you go fishing it's like the computer 'Flappy Bird' XD. But I like it very interesting
