Complete Fishing Hole Guide. All Fish locations and tips.

    3 years ago #1
    Well, I've now caught Every fish! And no, there is no reward of any kind. Now that I've got them all, here's the tips I can give you guys for getting them all!

    A word of advice, "Boss fish" seem to only spawn if you've done at least one "fishing session" and caught all or almost all of the fish during that session. Doing more sessions may increase the spawn rates, but this is all unconfirmed at the moment.

    For this reason, it is advisable to spend the first day or two catching as many fish as possible. Then spend the third day entering and exiting the fishing hole until the rare fish you're looking for spawns.

    If you need money, you should always grab the 2 silver rupees in Clock Town (The first is in the Bomber's hideout, to the left along the canal. You'll need an explosive of any kind to break the wall. Watch out for the Skulltula. The other is along the Rooftops in East Clocktown, all the way to the south end. )
