Default I want my character to reflect image plane

I have here my bullet. I have an image plane of an island. I want the bullet to reflect the island when I render it, so it looks realistic. How do I do this? Ty.

Check under the plane’s attributes, then check under render stats, and uncheck everything, but Visible in Reflections and Visible in Refractions.
