      I don't know if it's my slow reflexes, my mouse, my computer, or what. I don't even get to the minigame. I hear the cue, have tried everything I can think of. None of the tutorials say exactly what you have to do when you hear the little sound and the exclamation mark appears above your head. I've spent many days in game time this first year trying to fish and I don't catch anything. It looks like this will help with the minigame if I get to that, so thanks. I despair of having a nibble that counts for anything, let alone landing anything.....

        @SILKYM You click your mouse button when the exclamation point is over your head.

        You could just look at the Stardew Valley wiki for Fishing (source) that gives a guide on what you're supposed to do and what to expect.

          Does it matter which button (R or L) and where the mouse is when I click? If I'm doing it right, then I'm guessing that my wireless mouse may not get the signal over to the computer in time. I have lots of vision problems (retina damage) and nerve stuff especially in my hands. This fishing component is just defeating me--I've spend hours and wasted lots of trout soup. The other thing I really need is for the night scenes to be a little brigher and more contrasty. I get it that it's an extra challenge, but it's extra challenge for me in the daytime and indoor! :) But this game is so absorbing. I just want to catch fish. Like at all. At this point, just getting the hang of it...! getting to the mini game and getting that! Thank you. I did watch a half dozen tutorials on fishing in S.V. and I still just get my bobber back and nothing else. (That is called a bobber right?)

            @SILKYM You need to click your left mouse button I believe. Yes, it is called a bobber. If fishing is very difficult for you because of visual problems, there is another option, although it's cheat-y.

            CJB Cheats Menu (source) gives you an option under Farm & Fishing to remove the mini-game entirely. You would just need to wait for the fishing bobber to make a sound and pull. For me, it is easier to click once I hear the vibrating sound the fishing bobber makes than waiting on a visual cue from my character.

            The cheat menu also offers an option to cause instant bites as well, which you can toggle instead if you want to try your hand at the mini-game. You would not be able to miss catching a fish, outside of failing the mini-game, so there is still some form of challenge.

              Remember, to be able to download the updated version, you must make an account. This is because the new modder didn't think to use dropbox like the original modder did. *Exasperated Sigh*

                Not that making an account here is all that hard, to be honest. It is, however, MUCH easier for me to just update here as needed rather than going through some 3rd-party website.

                Is it really that difficult to make an account here, that people feel that it's such a bad thing?

                  the mod is not working on mine :( I feel get irritated on fishing in this game so I keep trying to search the easy mod but they aren't still working T_T

                    Are you using the English version of the game?

                    If not, sadly, the mod will not work.

                    EDIT: OH! I just realized that this isn't even on my mod... go here:

                    https://community.playstarbound.com/resources/easier-fishing-standalone-1-1.4226/

                    Try this mod instead.

                    The mod on this thread is outdated as it was released before the game added 2 new fish. Mine's updated, however it will only work on the English version of the game.

                      Yes I use the English version.

                      However, I downloaded the fish mod and replaced with the original one but how many times I tried it out it didn't work :(

                      I tried out to replace the file as 'fish.xnb' first but I tried out replacing it as 'fish.es-ES.xnb' too.

                        Because changing the easy mod as 'fish.xnb' is not working, I tried changing the name as 'fish.es-ES.xnb' either

                          Changing it to fish.es-ES.xnb will not work, because the game is expecting a specific format.

                          Basically, all of the files that are NOT "fish.xnb" have an extra field in them, having to do with translations.

                          It looks something like this:

                          number|nameoffish|season|strength|type|

                          in Fish.xnb.

                          In the other languages' Fish.xnb, it looks like this:

                          number|nameoffish|season|strength|type|translatednameoffish|

                          Note the extra variable on the end.

                          Without this variable, your game will hard crash, because it's expecting a value, and it's getting null instead.

                          And are you sure you renamed it to Fish.xnb and not Fish.xnb.xnb? Could you please open a command prompt (shift+right click inside of the correct folder) and type dir /w and go to Paint and then Paste, save, and upload to imgur (you can crop the rest of the image, I just need to see the Command Prompt window).

                          And you used my easier fishing mod and not this one, correct?

                            Oh I just reinstalled the game again and erased the original fish.xnb. Then I applied that the fishing mod file and it works! Thanks for your comments a lot! :)

                              Jeg vil gerne havde en hvor den selv trak fisk op også og man ikke behøver alt det med fiskeri

                                Dose this work on the beta or not because of the new fish? I really miss this mod.

                                  I’m finding no issue in using it in beta at the moment for general use, but haven’t tested catching the new fish yet.

                                      Wondering if you can put this on the Twitch app for easier installation. Windows 10 is a nightmare and it is making all my xnb files into wordpad and nothing works except the one mod i have loaded from twitch. Here is the link to the twitch app:
