Hook, Line and Sinker is the 20th episode in Season 1 of H2O: Just Add Water.


Emma and Cleo help Lewis catch a huge fish in the fishing competition leading the judges to suspect he’s a cheat. Meanwhile Zane and Rikki are stuck together on a balcony of a fancy hotel where after much argument, they kiss again.


Lewis enters the fishing competition but the other competitors see him as a bit of a joke so Cleo swims out to sea to find him an impressive fish to put on his hook. Problem is, it’s a little too impressive. The judges suspect he’s a cheat. Lewis is forced out of the competition. In the meantime, Rikki and Zane get stuck together on a balcony of a fancy hotel. Zane has a fear of heights but Rikki is calm, until Zane points out it looks like rain. Neither happy to be there, they start to talk and find out they actually have things in common. They make a connection and are about to kiss when it starts to rain. Rikki freaks but luckily Harrison arrives just in time and lets them in. Zane and Rikki kiss. Cleo tries to help Lewis and takes Emma with her to search the sea for a school of fish just like the one he "caught" to bring back to the pier for everyone. Lewis is reinstated as the winner.
