04.  L U R E S
================================================================================

01. Popper       : Lure that looks like a  small  fish or frog. It floats at the
                   surface of the water. Pull the force to make noise and
                   splashes to attract the Bass's Attention.

02. Pencil Bait  : It  floats  at the water surface. Use shorts, quick movements 
                   to mimic a small fish swimming.

03. Metal Jug    : A lure made of metal.  With it's high sinkability, it is very
                   effective  when fishing  at deep reservoirs and natural lakes
                   in winter.

04. Minnow       : Mimics a  tiny fish  swimming. This lure maintains it's level
                   underwater if allowed to drift and sinks slowly when you reel
                   in.

05. Crank Bait   : Lure that sinks  when it's pulled. The lure floats if allowed
                   to drift. Quick pulls make the lure zig zag underwater.

06. Vibration    : This  lure vibrates  when it's pulled. It sinks if allowed to
                   drift. When you pull, it moves with vibration and noise.

07. Spinner Bait : This  lure stimulates the Bass's Curiosity with it's spinning
                   blade. Reeling in steadily is crucial.

08. Jerk Bait    : Small fish  lure made  of rubber. When pulled, it moves as if
                   transformed.  Wait until  it sinks slowly to target depth and
                   then start pulling.

09. Worm         : Worm - like lure  made of  rubber.  Moves  up and  down as it
                   struggles  at  the  bottom of the lake and attract the Bass's
                   attention.

10. Grub         : Grub-like lure.  It's large  fin sways  back and forth in the
                   water. Attract Bass by pulling it along the bottom.

================================================================================

1. Edward & Teresa 
   For telling me that Livewell No. 06 is Catfish (BIWA) and where to found.


================================================================================
11.  L I S T  O F  T H E  D A M N E D
================================================================================

This list now contain two suckers.  I still hope that this list isn't growing so
fast.

1. Today,  I went to a game-shop,  and guess what?  I found that  my Dino Crisis
   walkthrough  has been published  without  my  permission.  That  sucker  only
   translate my walkthrough in Indonesian language and sell it for Rp. 12.500,-.
   That bastard  translate it words by words.  Itís title is GAME GUIDE Volume :
   9. And it has this statement on the back cover : ďAnggota IKAPI 106/JBA/10-08
   -99Ē. Some of my friends told me that it was made in Bandung by VEGA(the same
   store  that sell it). The  previous volume  of that magazine  is also ripping
   someone else's faq(especially from GameFAQs)and translate it into Indonesian.
   And I got some words for anyone that responsible for this :
   FUCK  YOU,  BASTARD.  I SWEAR TO GOD  THAT IF I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, I WILL TAKE
   CARE OF YOU. I'M NOT KIDDING. I WILL MAKE YOU PAY  FOR YOUR SINS.  So  if you
   happen  to read my walkthrough prepare to be scared. I mean  VERY SCARED (No,
   donít worry, I wonít take your pitiful soul from your brainless body,  I only
   make sure that you will  suffer till the rest of your life).
   And for you, dear readers, if you know anything,  anything about this asshole
   -person, please let me know about that. I will apreciate any infos about this
   animal.  His address, telephone, faxs, or e-mail.  I will  greatly appreciate
   it.
   Ah,  hah.  Finally I got that bastard's e-mail address : vdirect@bdg.centrin.
   net.id. So please send all your curse words and condemn to that motherfucker.

2. This magazine called Game Station and also made in Bandung. Well, he actually
   didn't stole my walkthrough, but he stole my friend's walkthrough. So I think
   this bastard  is  worth enough  to enter my list.  OK, here's the stat : Game
   Station, October 1999, third week, volume 21, Rp. 3.500,-. It's address is on
   Jl. Pungkur 155 Lt. 2, Bandung 40251. And, the best part is I know its e-mail
   address : gameguys@bdg.centrin.net.id.  And  this  magazine is also have some
   connection  to  VEGA  (the one that plagiarized my walkthrough).  So,  if you
   concern about this plagiarism problem, you know where to send your e-mail.

================================================================================
12.  I M P O R T A N T  N O T E
================================================================================

Hey,  faq-makers, you should read this section.  I just receive an e-mail and he
told me that  he has asking everybody  who made a walkthrough (including myself)
and  I'm the  ONLY  one that answered.  Have you all forgot the manner that your
father and mother taught you when you were kids? If someone asking for your help
and you can help him, then do so. If you don't want people to send you an e-mail
then said so  on your faq.  Don't let people disappointed.  I also have the same
experience.  I asked someone  and he didn't answered me.  I don't know if he's a
busy man or not,  but he didn't answered me. I'm very disappointed. Just because
you have made a great faq,  and a lot of people e-mail you,  it don't make you a
great man. What makes you a great man is your attitude.

And for myself, I guarantee that  I will answer  your questions, even if I can't
answer it.  And  if I haven't  answered your mail within a week , please mail me
back, because maybe I don't read your faq, or something like that.
