Despite the new fishing system made it harder to fish Pokemons by using Rods, I liked it a lot because it turned fishing into something more realistic. Fishing is really that... you have to wait carefully and pay attention to the hook all the time.
I enjoy it as a gimmick that makes the fishing slightly more realistic, and slightly exciting. But I'm definitely glad they dumbed it down for all the other games. It wouldn't be as fun if it was like that in all of them.
I like it actually! I found it pretty fun, but apparently others found it too difficult. :( It was the first game I actually fished in though, so I guess that's why it wasn't too bad for me to adjust to, since I didn't have anything to compare it to.

It drove me nuts since it took a while, but... I honestly enjoyed the system sometimes. u~U Just felt like it would have been much easier if you only needed to wait until you had a bite, especially if you're playing on a sped up emulator.
I'll say the fishing system was retarded, but I mastered it nonetheless
When it says "Oh! A bite!" you should press & hold the A button, then when the phrase goes & appears again let go for a millisecond then press & hold again, repeat until the player realizes that "a Pokemon is on the hook!"
