So, i already saw some posts about this, but i thought nobody really got the same point as i. In my opinion, fishing is one of the best parts of the game, not because it's easy, but because it's hard! A real challenge in this game. Well, it starts out almost impossible, but after understanding how to fish and catching five or six fishes you will already know the basics, and that's enough to you to be ready... until you get to those fishes, you know which ones, right? The ones that jump up and down and never stay still. They drove me mad in the beginning, so i decided to ignore them and just move on to the next fish, i will come back and talk about them later in this thread. After you learn the basics, you will want to fish at least two fishes daily, they make a lot of money early in the game, in fact, fishes were one of the only things that gave me money in the start. Doing so will not only help you with money, but will level up your ability, that's when things start getting easier. You will want to upgrade your fishing rod as soon as you can, then, when you unlock the iridium rod, you will do that again. Remember to use bait always if it's possible. It will take some time, but you will get to a point where fishes that you struggled at first become easy. That's when you should stop ignoring the crazy fishes, those won't ever get easy, but they can be at least easier than in the start. You can and should learn the way that those fishes move, that can make you predict their next move. Other thing that you should do is always equip a tackle, i recommend the Trap Bobber. When you catch one of those fishes, you can consider yourself a real fisherman. Then we get to the legendary fishes, now, i don't wanna make it super easy for you, so, i have no tips of how to fish those, they are going to become a real challenge for you. The only thing i can say is, you can only catch one of those, so be smart of what you will do with it, i, myself, gave one to Willy, but when i learned he didn't actually like it, i reset my game and put in a chest. How to identify a legendary fish, you ask? Well, legendary fishes have little crowns in their heads when you play the fishing mini-game. One last thing, remember: You don't need to click your mouse like crazy, you can just hold the left click and it will work as well.
