=======================================================================
If you're looking at this guide then you probably already know what
fishing is for on this game, but just incase, let me explain. In Dark
Cloud, there is fun little side-game called fishing. Once you get the
fishing rod, a fishing spot, and some bait you can fish. By catching
fish you earn FP(Fishing Points) that can be exchanged for prizes.
While this may sound simple, it's actually pretty challenging and fun!

Read the next two sections to help you get the things you need to start
fishing and learn how to fish. After that, check out the other sections
of the guide to find out what fish you can catch and how, and when, you
can catch them. Thanks for checking out my guide and enjoy!!

The fishing rod is easy to obtain. All you have to do is find all the
Atla necessary for rebuilding Alnet's House and complete it. Here's a
list of the Atla pieces you'll need:

Alnet's House
Alnet
Cabin
Carl
Lamp
Llama
Stairway

Once you have gathered all the necessary Atla, open the Georama menu.
Connect all the pieces then place the house. Go inside the house and
Alnet will give you the fishing rod. Yay!


                *************************************
                *                                   *

                *************************************

This one is even easier to obtain then the fishing rod. Once you find
the Atla piece Pond open the Georama menu and place it. That's it! For
more info on this fishing spot and the other spots, see section "D.4
Fishing Spots".

Now that you've gotten everything, now it's time to get some bait to
fish with. Well, there are a number of ways to collect bait; Treasure
chests, defeating or stealing from enemies, and buying it from a shop.
you've most likelyalready gotten some fishing bait already, such as
Mimi, Prickly, Potato Cake, Carrot, Poisonus Apple etc. Any of them can
be used to catch fish (Though the Poisonous Apple and Carrot wont come
in handy until you reach Matataki Village). For more info on what all
can be used as bait, see section "E.5 Bait List".

=======================================================================
FISHING CONTROLS:
x        - Cast and hook fish
O        - Quit Fishing
Square   - Choose Bait
Start    - Pause

GOING FISHING:
Once you have a everything you need, you can start fishing. Go to a
fishing spot and look for a sign with a fish on it. While standing in
front of it press X and a list with a few options will appear. The
first one let's you fish, the second one let's you exchange the fishing
points you have earned for prizes, the third one let's you see the
twenty biggest fish you've caught, and the last one exits out of it.

CHOOSING BAIT AND CASTING OUT:
Press the square button to open your pockets and select what bait you
wish to use. I don't recommend Carrots or Poisonous Apples because only
certain fish will bite those. I wuold also recommend saving any potato
cakes you have for later.

Now that you've selected your bait stand in front of the water and
press X to  cast your line. My advice is to look around for some
fish and then cast out. That way you don't have to wait for a fish to
get close to your hook. Oh yeah, you cant decide how far to cast your
line. I know it sucks but you gotta deal with it.

REELING IN:
Once a fish gets interested in your hook it will start nibble and play
around with it. The key to it is to press X right when the bobber sinks
down into the water completely. If you do it just right you'll hook the
fish and he'll pull it in.

WHAT TO DO NOW:
When you catch a fish you'll see his name, how big he is, and how much
fishing points you got from him. Unfortunately, when you catch a fish
he let's it go but you get to keep the points you earned and you can
exchange them for prizes when you select FP Exchange from the fishing
sign menu. For a list of all the prizes, see section "G.7 FP Exchange
List".

D.4                      Fishing Spots                                |
=======================================================================
There are a total of five fishing spots in this game. This section is
meant to tell you how to get access to each one, what fish you can
catch at each one, what bait you should use, and an overall breakdown
of each of them.

                *************************************

=========================
   Norune Pond          |
=========================
HOW TO GET IT:
Find the Atla containing the Pond in the Divine Beast Cave, then place
the pond anywhere in the village.

FISH YOU CAN CATCH:
Gobbler, Gummy, Niler, Nonky.

RECOMMENDED BAIT:
Prickly, Mimi, Minon, Battan.

DESCRIPTION:
An okay fishing spot. It's the first one you get so of course it's not
going to be the best, but it's so small so it makes it hard to focus
only on one fish. The fish aren't really anything to brag about either.
The best fish is easily the Niler, but the rest of the fish don't give
many fishing points. I wouldn't fish here unless your learning how to
fish.

                *************************************

=========================
   Waterfall            |
=========================
HOW TO GET IT:
It's already available, just head over to the waterfall.

FISH YOU CAN CATCH:
Baku Baku, Baron Garayan, Gummy, Mardan Garayan, Nonky.

RECOMMENDED BAIT:
Battan, Mimi, Minon, Poisonous Apple(for the Mardans), Potato Cake(for
the Barons).

DESCRIPTION:
This one is better than the one in Norune but only for one reason; Mar-
dan Garayan and Baron Garayan!! These are two very rare fish and they
can only be caught here, and in Muska Lacka. Mardan Garayans can only be
caught with and Baron Garayans with Potato Cakes. They are well worth it
too! The Mardans are usually worth around or over 200 points, and Baron
Garayans which are usually worth around 500 to 900 points!! Other than
that, the fish are less then spectacular. We've seen the Gummies and
Nonkies before, and the Baku Bakus aren't that great at all. The Water-
fall is also too big, and you cant normally reach the areas where the
fish are. If you are going to fish here, throw in some bomb nuts and
if the fish is attracted to it, reel it back out. If they are not, it's
most likely a Mardan or Baron. You should already be able to tell the
Barons apart because they're so big.

=========================
   Peanut Pond          |
=========================
HOW TO GET IT:
Finish connecting the river from the Waterfall to where Treant is lo-
cated at to  make the river flow again. Then the pond will have water
again.

FISH YOU CAN CATCH:
Baku Baku, Gobbler, Gummy, Tarton, Umadakara.

RECOMMENDED BAIT:
Carrot(for the Umadakaras), Battan, Mimi, Potato Cake(for the Tar-
tons).

DESCRIPTION:
It's a pretty good spot. You get to fish for Tartons which are worth
a good amount ]of points, and Umadakaras which is the next best fish
to the Garayans. It's not too big or too small and the area is open
enough to let you go all the way around it. The trick to this fishing
spot is to only use Carrots and Potato Cakes. The only fish that will
bite the Carrot in the game is the Umadakara, and the only fish that
will bite the Potato Cake here at Peanut Pond is the Tarton, so it's
a sure thing! Also, if you wanna fish for the other fish use a
Battan or a Mimi and you'll hook 'em almost everytime! Plus, there's
still a chance it'll be a Tarton. Great place, ya!?

                *************************************

=========================
   Queen's Docks        |
=========================
HOW TO GET IT:
It's already available when you get there, just head to the port.

FISH YOU CAN CATCH:
Bobo, Bon, Hamma Hamma, Kaji, Piccolly.

RECOMMENDED BAIT:
Evy, Petite Fish.

DESCRIPTION:
The fishing will be a little different because you can't see the fish
here. So your gonna have to just throw it in there a wait for them to
bite. Keep in mind that it can take awhile sometimes, and I wouldn't
recommend fishing at night because I have yet to catch anything here at
that time. As for the fish here, they're pretty good I guess. The Hamma
Hamma and Kaji are worth it but the rest are not that good. Recommend
using Petite Fish instead of Evies to make sure you'll catch the good
ones only.

                *************************************

=========================
   Oasis                |
=========================
HOW TO GET IT:
Find the Atla containing it in the Sun & Moon Shrine, then place the
Oasis anywhere in Muska Lacka. It does need three trees to complete it,
but you dont need them to be able to fish.

FISH YOU CAN CATCH:
Baron Garayan, Den, Heela, Mardan Garayan, Negie.

RECOMMENDED BAIT:
Battan, Mimi, Minon, Poisonous Apple(for the Mardans), Potato Cake(for
the Barons).

DESCRIPTION:
This is a pretty good fishing spot, and it's my favorite. Not only can
catch MArdans and Barons here, but they appear more frequently. And
don't listen to those people who say you can only catch them at Dusk.
While I have only caught the Baron Garayans at Dusk or Night, I have
caught several Mardans at Night and Morning. This spotis about as big
Peanut Pond, and the only thing that should make you a little frustra-
ted is the shrubs that block your way on the right side making you have
to go all the way around. The good news about this spot is there will
always be four fish out there and you can see them right at the start
everytime you fish. And not only are the Garayans good fish to catch,
but the Den and Heela are worth a pretty decent amount of points too.
Usually over 20 FP.

E.5                      Bait List                                    |
=======================================================================
Thirteen types of bait are available and they each catch certain types
of fish. This list is meant to tell you exactly what kind of fish each
bait catches, a description of how well it catches and it's purpose
other then fishing, and where you can find it at.

If I say steal it from another enemy, you'll need a weapon with
the 'Steal' ability. The earliest weapon your likely to find with the
steal ability is Xiao's Bandit Slingshot. If I say it can be found in
treasure chests, I mean any chests(Inside a dungeon or outside in a
village, town etc.).

NOTE:
I need help on what each fish bait catches, so if you know of any
other fish you can catch with them that isn't here, please send them
to me. You'll get full credit and it'll be greatly appreciated! Email
address is provided at the end of the FAQ.

their worth.

tween 75 to 100cm), Large(between 100 to 150cm), Huge(anything above
150cm). The fishing point range will be listed Low(Anything below 25
FP), Average(between 25 to 50 FP), High(between 50 to 200 FP), and
lastly, Very High(anything above 200 FP).

NOTE:
I need help with what fish can be caught with each bait, and what time
they can be caught at. Specifically need info on if you can catch fish
in Queen's Docks at night. I have yet to catch anything there at night
and any info you have would be greatly appreciated. You'll also get

H.8                      Catching The Rare Fish                       |
=======================================================================
There are 3 fish in this game that give you a great amount of points.
These fish are the Umadakara, Mardan Garayan, and Baron Garayan. This
section is dedicated solely to thiese fish and they are well worth the
effort it takes to catch them(especially the Garayans), so I recommend
reading this fully and trying your hand at catching them.

UMADAKARA:
The Umadakara is worth the least amount of points of the three, but is
still great considering the fact it's normally worth over 00 fishing
points. It can be found in the Peaunt Pond in Matataki Village and
can only be caught using Carrots. I've only encountered it during the
morning and afternoon time, and it could possibly be the easiest to
catch out of three, making it well worth going after. While I normal-
ly recommend going after the Garayans instead, this fish can be well
worth it considering you can always use Potato Cakes to catch some
Tartons while trying to catch it too, which also give a decent amount
of points. Since Umadakaras are the only fish who bite Carrots, and
Tartons are the only ones here who will bite Potato Cakes, you could
rack in a good amount of points!

MARDAN GARAYAN:
A purple-feminine looking fish that can be caught at the Waterfall in
Matataki and the Oasis in Muska Lacka by using Poisonous Apples. I've
caught them frequently at morning and dusk, and also at night. They
appear more often in the Oasis then they do at the Waterfall, and are
usally worth around 200-300 points. If you catch one there will be a
new sword available for 2500 FP for called Mardan Eins. Once you've
got the sword, you'll be able to upgrade the sword into Mardan Twei
by catching 10 more Mardans, and then into Arise Mardan by catching
15 more after that. Also after catching a Mardan Garayan if you try
to unlock a locked trasure chest by choosing to guess what trap is
set, Mardan will appear on the correct answer.

BARON GARAYAN:
The Baron Garayan is an enormous fish that appears at the Waterfall
in Matataki and the Oasis in Muska Lacka. It can be found in the dusk
and night, and can only be caught using a Potato Cake. It's normally
worth over 500 points! Making it the best fish in the game. It's easy
to tell it from the other fish becauseit's so big and can easily be
as big as Toan. The trouble your gonna have with it, is the fact that
it can only be caught with Potaton Cakes, and since other fish are
attracted by them, making hard to tell if the fish you are catching
is one or not. You should fish for them at the Oasis because I have
hardly ever found them at the Waterfall. The main thing to remember
when going after them is if your fishing for it at the Oasis, there
is a chance it could be a Den instead. But still, if you see a really
big fish take your chance and catch it.
