If both you and the fish are pulling at the same time, chances are the line will break.

The game doesn't explain fishing well enough. When it's not struggling you mash the button, when it is you just tap it a few times per second or so. You can get away with a a quick burst of mashing during struggles but if you maintain it the fish will escape. On the other hand being too careful will just result in larger fish getting further away and escaping.

It doesn't take that long to experiment with the above method and find the right balance.

To be fair, I don’t think it needs to explain fishing for the simplistic way it’s presented. If two things pull hard on opposite ends of something, it’s more likely to break.
