Puffer Fish

Does anyone know where to fish for the Puffer Fish? I need it to trade for the piece of wood that Dr. Feelgood has. I need that wood to make the hammer.

The pufferfish is located where you washed up only at noon(when the sun is highest).

do i have to perfect the mini game to trigger the fishes appearance?

kezzieByipee answered:

The best spot to get the puffer fish is at the bottom of the rock cliff that leads up to the doctor but I have caught one in the sea by the crafting bench, with an ordinary spear x

I have also caught one by my home, but it was later in the game. I guess that the seasons changed or something.

I caught one at night-ish time by where you get washed up! It takes a lot of trying and looks nothing like the picture!

The purple fish is called a sea chub

gotu308 answered:

Do I have to be perfect in the fishing to get it cause I can only manage to catch 2-3 fish so if I need to perfect the spear fishing mini game then this game goes back

What does the puffer fish look like?Does it look like a eel?

Guest answered:

Got one. Thanks for the tips. At around noon you must go to the place where you washed up. You need to use the spear. For those of you who don't know, the place where you washed up is the place where you find the crates.

is it the small purple fish

Guest answered:

I thin you must wait at night and when it's noon you must go to the place near your home

Guest answered:

Ok to unlock the pufferfish you have to get the medicine from Dr. Feelgood for Ms. Weeder’s plants. After that you can fish anywhere in the ocean during the day to get a pufferfish.
