Well against my best efforts, I couldn't stop playing & now I've finished it. One question though... What was the point of the fish eggs, well & the fish inside it? If you put the eggs on your hook you can almost catch a fish, but it jumps back in. If you have the hints turned on, Guybrush tells you you need bigger bait. What is the point of this? It isn't necessary for completing the game. Is it just a red herring? If it is, it's an extremely elaborate one.
