How to Catch Sea Fish

Sea Fishing Locations

There are only two locations to keep in mind when fishing for Ocean fish.

  1. The Pier, which is the wooden bridge dock located somewhere on your beaches.
  2. Everywhere in the Ocean.
## Sea Fishing Guide ### Pier Fishing

Pier.png

  1. Craft Fish Bait and throw it from the end of your island's Pier to attract a fish.
  2. Check the shadow of Fish that appear to target the one you want.

Note that a lot of Pier fish are rare and that normal Ocean fish might also appear, so it might take quite a while to find the right ones. Prepare to use plenty of of bait and patience.

Also note that the bridge leading to the Airport does not count!

Most Ocean fish can be found everywhere in the ocean, even from your Pier, so it doesn't matter whether you fish from the dark rocky areas or your sandy beaches.
