| Why This Guide Exists
|
| Why a guide specifically on fishing? Can't most of this information be found
| in your huge Harvest Moon guide? Yes, most of the information here will
| eventually appear in my larger Harvest Moon FAQ, but a large portion of
| people loading an FAQ actually care about the fishing - and why force them to
| download what will eventually be a 1-megabyte file just for a small portion
| of that content? That's my reasoning behind all these spin-off specialized
| guides.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| What You'll Find
|
| Here you'll find everything there is to know about fishing, fishing spots and
| the fish themselves. That includes recipes they can be used in, fish
| availability, and when different fishing spots are available. Eventually,
| there will also be a thorough fish profit analysis.

| Obtaining and Strengthening the Rod
|
| In order to fish, first you naturally must obtain a fishing rod. Obtaining
| the fishing rod is very simple: meet Toby outside On the Hook, down the
| stairs from the pier. He'll give you one for free. Now wasn't that easy?
|
| As far as strengthening goes, however, there are two ways to strengthen the
| rod: you can 'upgrade' it and you can 'level' it.
|
| 'Levelling' your rod occurs just from standard use. Every time you catch and
| reel in a fish, your rod gains points towards its next level. Your progress
| can be observed on the Tools screen of the in-game status screens.
|
| When your rod reaches a new level, you'll be able to hold down A longer when
| casting to cast further. In this way, you'll be able to catch rarer fish.
| Certain fish cannot be caught at all until your rod has levelled up.
|
| The other method of strengthening is 'upgrading' your rod, which happens at
| either the Blacksmith's Shop or the General Store. At the Blacksmith's Shop,
| you can upgrade your rod by paying a fee and supplying a Metal corresponding
| to the next level of rod (Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold); at the General Store,
| you can upgrade your rod just by paying the fee, but the fee is three times
| higher than the Blacksmith's Shop.
|
| 'Upgrading' your rod makes it use less stamina when you reel fish in, but it
| also increases your odds of catching rarer fish. Your rod must be levelled
| to catch rarer fish, but once levelled, upgrading it is the only way to
| increase the likelihood of catching the rarer fish over the more common fish.
|
| For more detailed information on tools, levelling and upgrading, search for
| { UPG } without the spaces.

| How to Fish
|
| Fishing in Tree of Tranquility is a relatively easy process. Once you have
| your rod, simply go to one of the several fishing spots, equip the rod and
| use it by pressing A (motion controls are also available, though are not
| necessary). Then, when a fish bites (you'll be alerted by a sound, a visual
| change, and a controller vibration), press A repeatedly or hold the
| controller vertically to reel the fish in. Holding the controller vertically
| is obviously easier, but for the Classic Controller you'll have to press A
| as fast as you can.
|
| Unlike some recent Harvest Moon games, you won't actually see fish nibbling
| on your line in the water. Instead, you must simply wait patiently while your
| hook dangles until something bites.
|
| If you successfully reel in the fish, it will appear in your hands and you
| can either drop it or put it in your rucksack. If you fail, it will swim off
| and you'll have to cast again.
|
| If you have an levelled-up fishing rod, you can power it up by holding it
| vertical for longer (for the WiiMote), or by holding the A button longer.
| It's necessary to power your rod up to catch better fish.
|
| Only same-type fish will stack in your rucksack, but chances are you won't
| catch enough varieties of fish on a single trip for that to matter.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FST} _
| Stamina
|
| Stamina use while fishing is interesting. Casting your line will use no
| stamina, and neither will sitting there waiting for a fish. The only time
| stamina is consumed is when a fish is resisting and you're trying to reel it
| in.
|
| This makes for some very interesting strategy, because this is the only tool
| usage in the game where you can run out of stamina halfway through using a
| tool. With other tools, you know if one more use will deplete your stamina
| fully, but with a fishing rod it's dependent on how fast you reel in the
| fish (which itself is only dependent on the type of fish caught, not on your
| reeling skill).
|
| As mentioned above, better rods take less stamina to reel in their fish, so
| upgrade when you get the chance.
|

| Why Fish?
|
| Fishing has many important uses in the game. Its usage is not as varied as
| mining and some other activities, but it is equally important:
|
|  - Profit. Fishing is a great way to make some extra money. Many fish sell
|    for upwards of 200G, making it easy to make some extra cash in your spare
|    time, especially with a levelled and upgraded rod from the best fishing
|    spots.
|
|  - Power Berry. Fishing is the only way to obtain a certain Power Berry. To
|    obtain it you must level your rod up to level 3 (note: you don't need to
|    upgrade it for this Power Berry, just level it through usage). The next
|    time you cast after that, you'll fish up this Power Berry.
|
|  - Food. Fish make great dishes, and are the ingredients in dozens of the
|    game's recipes.
|
|  - Completion. One of the items accessible on the bookshelf screens is a
|    "Fish List", which contains a list of all the possible fish obtained from
|    the rivers and ocean. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete
|    this too.
|
|  - Goddess Recipes. By far the most important reason to fish is that every
|    single goddess recipe requires at least one fish:
|      - Carp for Daren's tree.
|      - Char for Ben's tree.
|      - Saury for Collin's tree.
|      - Wood Fish for Alan's tree.
|      - Tuna for Edge's tree.
|    Daren's tree also requires a Good Herb Fish, a fish-related dish that must
|    be cooked yourself.

| Tips for a Successful Expedition
|
| If you're going on a fishing trip with the intention of bringing back a nice
| haul, here are a few tips:
|
|  - Choose your spot carefully. Some spots have much better fish available
|    than others, and there's no point spending all day at a spot when there's
|    better fish to be had elsewhere.
|
|  - Use the weather. Certain weather patterns are better for fishing, most
|    notably rain. This is especially convenient given that rainy days mean
|    no crop watering, adding to the time you can spend fishing.
|
|  - Get there early, stay late. The best fishing times are early in the
|    morning and late at night, so either plan to spend all day there or do
|    your chores around mid-day when the fish are less active.
|
|  - Bring stamina-restoring items. Fishing depletes your stamina fast,
|    especially before you get any Power Berries or upgrade the rod: restoring
|    items will help. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL,
|    any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails
|    or Chips). The best purchasable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL
|    (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelette (550G from Pineapple Inn) and
|    Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets).
|
|  - Decide whether to bring a match set. On the positive side, a match set
|    allows you to cook one of the fish you eat for free stamina restoration.
|    On the negative side, it takes up a spot in your rucksack. If you're
|    fishing near the ocean, where all the bonfire pits are located, it's a
|    good idea to bring one; but it's useless if you're fishing in the river.

|/There are several places around the islands where you can fish, each with its
| own custom assortment of catchable fish. Some fish are only available in
| certain seasons, so each location's assortment of fish varies from season to
| season as well.
|
| Fish are listed in order of sale value and rarity (which are correlated).
| Fish marked with a * are ingredients in a goddess recipe; fish marked with a
| + are subject to a specific condition for catching (time of day, weather
| condition, etc.).

|/There are 41 different fish in Tree of Tranquility. All can be caught using
| some level fishing rod, and some can be purchased as well. Many can be used
| in recipes.
|
| 'Rarity' is my own device to describe how difficult it is to catch a certain
| fish - it is not actually a function in the game. Essentially, a fish with
| rarity 1 is easily catchable with the lowest-level rod, whereas a fish with
| rarity 4 requires a higher-level rod and a bit of luck. A fish with rarity 5
| requires a higher-level rod and also has some special condition associated
| with it.
|
| 'Presses' refers to the number of button presses are required to reel the
| fish in. Holding the controller vertically is easier, but the button presses
| give a general gauge for how difficult each fish is to reel.

|/There are 41 fish in the game, and six recipes involve one ingredient that
| can be any of these fish: Herb Fish, Meuniere, Bouillabaise, Marinated Fish,
| Sushi and Sashimi.
|
| Fortunately, the six fish recipes operate on a unified mechanic, and they can
| all be profitable when done properly. For all these dishes, the quality of
| the dish is based on the sale prices of the ingredients used.
|
| The qualities are based on three cut-off points that divide the dish into
| four qualities. If the total value of your ingredients is less than the
| bottom cut-off, the dish will turn out Decent. If the total value of your
| ingredients is greater than the top cut-off, the dish will turn out Shining.
|
| For example, Herb Fish's cut-offs are at 300G, 600G and 1200G. A dish made
| from ingredients summing to 150G would be Decent; 450G would be Good; 750G
| would be Perfect; and 1350G would be Shining. These are just examples: any
| sum less than 300G will be Decent; any sum between 300G and 600G will be
| Good; any sum between 600G and 1200G will be Perfect; and any sum above
| 1200G will be Shining.
|
| Below are the cut-offs and sale prices for the six fish dishes. Use these
| numbers to determine if it's worth it to cook your fish into the dish or
| just sell them outright. Note also that for dishes involving an ingredient

| What's the difference between a crustacean and a fish?
|
| Practically, the only difference between the two is what recipes they can be
| used in. In the real world, one has scales and one has claws, or something
| like that. But in Tree of Tranquility, the only relevant difference is what
| recipes they can be used in.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Where is the best fishing location?
|
| East Gull Island has the best fishing for profit, followed by Toucan Island.
| You'll need to fish in all the locations if you want to catch every type of
| fish, though.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| There's a cave-looking thing up by the hot springs. Anyone know what that is?
|
| It's a cave that's unlocked after you complete the main story quest. All
| that's in it is a lake for fishing, though.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| How do I make an Herb Fish of "Good" quality?
|
| In short, the sale prices of the ingredients must add up to 300G. Remember,
| you can use up to four fish. You can find the sale prices of the ingredients
| in the section labeled [ FRP ] above.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| I can't catch the Wood Fish!
|
| You have to fish at the goddess spring at night (between 6PM and 6AM), but
| even then it's hard to catch. Just keep trying, it takes a lot of luck.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
| Where do I find the tools at the start of the game?
|
| The Axe is obtained by meeting Luke at the Carpenter's Shop.
|
| The Hammer is obtained by meeting Owen near the Blacksmith's Shop.
|
| The Sickle is obtained by meeting Cain at Brownie Ranch.
|
| The Fishing Rod is obtained by meeting Toby down at the beach.
|
| The Watering Can and Hoe are obtained free during the opening sequence.

| To e-mail me, PLEASE preface your e-mail subject line with [ToT] in
| brackets. I get a lot of spam, so that will help me sort through it and
| find your e-mail. If possible, IM me instead of e-mailing me if you have a
| question, but e-mail me if you have a contribution or correction.
|
| If you are submitting a tip or correction, please include how you would
| like to be credited. Otherwise I'll credit you by your e-mail address or
| screenname.
|
| I'd hoped not to have to do this, but I also need to make a disclaimer about
| the type of communication I'll accept. But my old note scared people off, so
| let me make it more succinct.
|
| I'm more than happy to answer any questions about Harvest Moon: Tree of
| Tranquility, via e-mail or IM. However, please note the
| following:
|  - I am not interested in just chatting about Harvest Moon: Tree of
|    Tranquility. That means, don't ask me who I married, if I've finished the
|    game, how much money I have, etc. And I'm not all that interested in
|    hearing every detail about your farm either. Sorry.
|  - I am not interested in chatting about any other game, nor am I qualified
|    to answer questions about any game except for Harvest Moon: Tree of
|    Tranquility. That means, don't ask me about Spore, Gears of War,
|    Kingodm Hearts, Animal Crossing or Age of Empires. Don't ask me what other
|    video game systems I have. Don't list yours for me. I'm really not
|    interested in hearing about it. Sorry.
|  - If you ask me a question that is clearly stated somewhere in this guide,
|    I'll tell you how to find it. I won't look up the answer for you. I didn't
|    write this guide just so people could scroll to the bottom and find my
|    e-mail address. Don't be afraid to ask, but don't be upset if I respond
|    with a search code.
|  - Please type communicably. I'm not obsessed with proper grammar/spelling,
|    but if I can't understand what you're saying I just won't respond. And
|    this one is just a pet peeve of mine: I have no idea what any of these
|    "smileys" mean: ^^ ^^; -_- >> << <<; >>;; <_> >_< n-n n.n - and I have no
|    desire to know. So don't say anything that's dependent on me understanding
|    what these devilspawn illegitimate children of lolspeak and anime mean.
|  - I am not interested in just chatting. That means, do not send me videos
|    of sneezing pandas. Do not ask me what I look like. Do not ask me what
|    "IMing" is. Do not ask me if I know a good cheat site. Do not send me the
|    "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" video. Do not send me a "Kiwee Emoticon." Do
|    not ask me if I like Naruto. And do NOT write DetroitDJ fanfiction.
|    Seriously, creepy.
|
| And yes, every single thing I've listed above has actually happened.
|
| Basically, if you contact me and I don't answer, ask yourself one question:
| Am I asking a question about Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility? If the answer
| is no, then now you know why I'm not responding. If you have a question,
| don't hesitate to ask.
