The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley

Collectibles - Fishing

There are a number of obvious fishing spots around Sunset Valley, these are Crystal Springs, Pinochle Pond, Recurve Strand, Summer Hill Springs, Sunnyside Strand, Stoney Falls and other locations such as the pond in Pleasant Rest Graveyard and Central Park.

Night fishing is a great way to catch rare fish and relax.

Experiment with bait and increase your Fishing skill to get more lucrative catches. Maximum prices for fish you catch are listed below:

Largemouth Bass: 33 Simoleons
Jumbo Largemouth Bass: 61 Simoleons
Blue Catfish: 49 Simoleons
Rainbow Trout: 87 Simoleons
Jumbo Blue Catfish: 124 Simoleons
Jumbo Rainbow Trout: 221 Simoleons
Golden Trout: 518 Simoleons

You can also catch other items however, i.e. ones that are not fish! As well as the Death Flower, Bubble Bath, Rubber Ducky, Laptop, MoodLite Candle, Guitar, Birthday Cakes, Flame Fruit, Money Tree Seeds and the Mysterious Mr. Gnome (more below) can all be fished out of the pools of Sunset Valley. You can sell your fish to Everfresh Delights Supermarket, eat them yourself, or put them in a tank in your house.

Death fish can ONLY be caught in the Graveyard! Unless you wanted to stuff up your game by putting on the cheat! Smile If you do want to use the cheat open the cheat box, (Command; Shift; C) type in testingcheatsenabled true then press enter on your keyboard. (NOTE: this works for both Mac's and PC! Also works for Sims 3 to Sims 3 pets and more.) Then open the cheat box back up again, (Command; Shift; C) and type in buydebug, and press enter again. There's 4 types of options when you go onto buy mode it'll probably be on a type called Sort By Room (but you want the option under that called Sort By Function.) There should be a question mark close to the end of the box, click on it. It should then show you a whole heap of options up with lots of boxes, go to the first one with a fishing hook and diamond and choose the breed of fish (or other). Buy the one that you want, place it in your fish pond or where ever you want to put it, and you are done! :D
Happy Spawning!! :D :D

There is a cheat so you can get the death fish/ robot fish in your pond! Open the cheat box, type in 'testingcheatsenabled true' then press enter. Then open up the cheat box agen, and type in buydebug. Then go on buy mode and click on the question mark catogrey. It should show up with lots of boxes, named lafter the breed of fish. Buy one that you want and place it in your fish pond, and you are done!! Btw, I'm not sure but this may only work if you have the ambitions explanation pack Smile hope this helped!!

the deathfish apears in the graveyard any day at midnight. a mist appears on water and you can see a big fish moving around. You must use a angelfish as bite. at 2.30 or 3.00 the mist will banish so the deathfish.
ah! one more thing. better is the bite, better the fish you catch.
Sorry about my english, I dont write it very well jeje.

What tank do you put the fish in that you catch? I tried to drag the fish from my inventory to the goldfish tank but it didn't work..... And is there a cheat to make fish appear in a pond on a resident property?
