How to Catch Pond Fish

Pond Fishing Locations

Bodies of water that are roughly the same length and width become Ponds, and all Pond fish can be found in them!

  1. Craft Fish Bait and throw it into the Pond to attract a fish.
  2. Check the shadow of Fish that appear to target the one you want.

Since Ponds don't have more than one type of location, fishing for Pond fish is a lot easier, as you only really need to check the shadow size and appearance times.
