A bar will show up. What to do?

There will be a "Hook Icon" that's going to move left and right. You will need to press Space Bar to stop the hook. If the hook lands in the yellow box, you'll hook a Pokemon(see image 1). If the hook lands at the tiny green box, you'll *perfectly* hook the pokemon which will give you more Fishing XP(see image 2).
