You’ll never catch a fish without seeing the shadow, so no need to cast unless you spot one. When you do you just need to equip the fishing rod, face toward the shadow and hit A to cast. Your goal is to get the bobber to hit right in front of the fish’s shadow, or at least close enough that it sees your hook.
Press the A Button right when the bobber goes under, making a “kerplunk” sound. Timing is everything, so be careful not to reel in too soon. If you pull the bobber back in before it goes under, then the fish will swim away.
