LOST IN BLUE
Fishing & Hunting Guide
( version 1.0 )

=========================
[0.0] - WELCOME
=========================

Hello, welcome to my hunting and fishing guide for Lost in Blue. Overall, there
does not seem to be much information available regarding the specifics of what
wildlife is available and how to obtain them for the Scrapbook. This is my
first guide, so I apologize for my lack of experience in writing it.

Thank you, and I hope you find this helpful!

TIP: You can use ctrl+f to jump to the desired section.

1.0 - Guide Created (1/28/14)


=========================
[1.0] - INTRO
=========================

So, you want to fill up your Scrapbook and those blank spaces are driving you
mad? Perhaps you are only missing a few, but no matter what you try you cannot
seem to find the sneaky buggers. Perhaps you have only been able to fill in a
few spaces at all. Whatever the case, some of those animals and fish can be
tricky to find, and with trying to survive on an island who has the time?

This guide will provide detailed information on where, when, and how to obtain
all the animals and seafood available in this game. That does not mean that it
will be easy- you will still have to put in the time and effort, and most of
all patience, to find these critters. The guide will just point you in the
right direction. Plus, sometimes it helps to know that someone, somewhere, has
found it, so it must exist.

That being said, there may be some differences between each copy/file of the
game that I am not aware of. Assuming there is not, then all the provided info
should be correct for everyone. Also, as only Keith can hunt/fish, this guide
is tailored for his story mode.

******************
[1.1] - Tools
******************

You will need to make certain tools for hunting and fishing. For more info on
tool making and the necessary materials, refer to a walkthrough. For the
purpose of this guide, I will list only the tools most suited to hunting and
fishing, and why I recommend them above others.

Bamboo Bow (Bow 2) - Bamboo + Vine
   Lasts longer than wooden bow (bow 1)

(Arrow 2) - Bamboo + Feather + Sharp Stone
   Good aim & strength; for tougher small animals
(Arrow 6) - Twigs + Feather + Sharp Stone
   Good aim; for large trapped animals & birds

Bamboo Bone Rod (Rod 1) - Bamboo + Vine + Sharp Bone
   Sturdy; can catch rarer fish; recommended
Bamboo Stone Rod (Rod 2) - Bamboo + Vine + Sharp Stone
   Sturdy; can catch rarer fish; easy to make

Small Trap - Basket + Twigs
   Allows you to catch small animals, some which can only be found this way
Large Trap - Stick + Rope
   Allows you to trap large animals that cannot be killed with one arrow

******************
[1.2] - Cheats
******************

There are a few cheats/glitches in this game that can help with obtaining the
wildlife. You can find these and other cheats right on gameFAQs, I am only
listing them here for simplicity and because they are relevant. Note that the
use of these is purely optional, I will provide several methods in this guide
and using cheats is only one of them.

Food Dupe Cheat - Use to help get bones for tools
  Have the food item you wish to duplicate in the last available slot, with at
  least two food items total in your inventory. Ask Skye to cook, choose the
  item (with A or the stylus) and immediately start tapping the item next to it
  repeatedly, however many times you wish to duplicate; you must use the
  stylus. CAUTION: if you view Skye's inventory ( X ) you will undo the cheat
  and the game may freeze. Also, sometimes she will not run out of the duped
  item and you will have to manually reset it by taking something from her
  inventory; this reset does not always work right.

Trap Dupe Glitch - Very helpful; Use to help trap animals
  Make the desired trap and have it in your inventory, then go to the location
  where you want to place it. Open the menu screen, choose your inventory (with
  A or the stylus) and immediately press the A button. Keith should bend down
  as if he is searching the ground, or at least be starting to bend, when the
  inventory screen opens. Select the trap and use it as normal, close out of
  the inventory and Keith should appear to be picking it up right as he places
  it. It will seem as if no trap has been placed, but if you exit the area and
  return it will be visible; your trap should be in the last available slot in
  your inventory. You may use this glitch several times before exiting the area
  to make the traps appear, they will all appear. CAUTION: There can only be so
  many traps in use at one time (type does not matter), and once you reach that
  limit you will no longer be able to place traps. If you try to place one,
  with or without the glitch, it will simply vanish; I do not know what this
  limit is exactly. Also, glitched traps seem to take longer to disappear than
  traps that are placed normally.


=========================
[2.0] - HUNTING
=========================

Ah, hunting. This is the only Lost in Blue game without the 'combat' aspect, so
the only way to obtain meat is through hunting or trapping animals. Sorry, no
wolves to fend off here! If you want your bones, you are going to have to work
for them. That being said, there are several areas and methods for hunting. I
will give a brief description of each, and will go more in depth on how to
hunt them within their respective sections.

For hunting small and large animals you will need a bow and arrows. If you
equip it and press the Y button, you will enter the hunting screen. You can
use the D-pad to select the arrow you want to use if you have different kinds,
and press and hold A to draw your bow and then aim with the D-pad. When you
release A you will fire your arrow, so make sure you are aiming where you want.
Unless the animal is caught in a trap you will only get one shot before it runs
away, so make it a good one!

--------------
Locations
--------------

The only areas in which you will really find animals for hunting are the
Plains, the beaches, the grassland, the jungle, and Lake Caldera. You may be
able to find animals in other places, but I will only touch on these as you can
fill your scrapbook just fine with them.

--------------
Small Trap
--------------

There are only two critters that can exclusively be caught in a small trap
(field mouse and squirrel), however several other animals can be captured and
it is easier than trying to spot them in the tall grass of the grassland; also,
you can only domesticate a chicken if you trap it. When you check the trap, if
you have an animal you will be able to tell right away (if your sound is on at
least). To collect it, just touch it with your stylus and slowly drag it to
your bag. No matter where you place a small trap, the animals you catch will be
the same, so I suggest just placing them near your home.

The animals you can catch using small traps are the Field Mouse, Squirrel,
Pigeon, Duck, and Chicken. Field Mice and Squirrels are, as far as I can tell,
exclusive to the traps. Pigeons are really hard to find in the normal hunting
screen in the grassland, so I suggest trapping them instead.

You can use the trap glitch if you want. I suggest only placing around five.
You can check a trap repeatedly and about every 5-10 times you should have
caught something. It is really a matter of luck and patience.

--------------
Ground
--------------

If you tap anywhere on the screen while your character is outside, they will
bend down and search the ground. Sometimes, in certain areas, when you do this
an animal will be there and you can slowly drag it to your bag just like you do
with small animals you trap. These cannot be caught in a trap though, and it
may take a while to find what you want, just keep at it!

--------------
Small Animal
--------------

These creatures are relatively small and can be killed with a single arrow, if
you use good arrows (bamboo+bone+feather arrows are the best, but you can kill
fine with bamboo+stone+feather arrows)! A fair few of these animals can also be
caught in small traps, and that is sometimes easier than trying to spot them in
the tall grass of the grassland. You must simple walk up to these animals with
your bow equipped and when close open the hunting screen (Y); you can even do
this while they are running away, so no worries.

--------------
Large Animal
--------------

These creatures are sturdier than their small counterparts, and it will take
several arrows to kill them, regardless of the quality. Unless you trap them
they will either run away, or, in the case of the boar, attack you once you
shoot them. So for these you must use a large trap. You can get bones from the
meat once Skye cooks it, and you can domesticate goats.

--------------
Domesticate
--------------

A word on domesticating animals- it does not serve much purpose, other than to
make Skye happy. Even if she has several bottles and the oil can is filled with
a water supply, she will not take very good care of the animals. At least, not
in my experience. She has never managed to obtain any eggs or milk, so only
choose to domesticate your catch if you want to raise her happiness. When the
animal inevitably dies, the first response will make her happy (I am not sure
if any other response will get her to take better care of it or not, but I will
assume not unless someone corrects me). Chickens and Goats can be domesticated
when captured in traps.

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

Hermit Crab
  An Odd creature often found when searching the beach. It lives in a top shell
  and when plucked out it tastes delicious in soup.

Sand Crab
  A small crab often found when searching the beach. Not much meat, but it
  tastes good when ground, shell and all, and used in soup.

Coconut Crab
  A crab with big claws that lives in tropical areas. Break the hard shell to
  eat the crab meat. It's delicious!!!

Land Tortoise
  Tortoise found in the Jungle. It moves slow and is easy to catch. Now, how
  should I cook it? Soup? Broiled?

Lizard
  Reptile that can be caught in the Jungle. I'll think of it as an important
  food source, so I'll do my best eating them. It is delectably delicious.

Snake
  A long, grotesque, wriggly snake found in the Jungle. Need to eat to survive!
  Soup or fried, who knows? Maybe it's delicious.

Boar
  Large animal found in the grassland. It eats roots and bugs by digging in the
  ground. It has a lot of stamina and is hard to bring down. Be careful.

Duck
  A water bird found at Lake Caldera. Located in the middle of the island. The
  meat is small. I'll boil it with vegetables and make stew.

Deer
  A large animal found in the grassland. The male has a branched horn. The meat
  is large.

Raccoon
  A very shy animal found in the grassland. It is nocturnal so you don't see it
  often during the day. The meat is large. Perfect for stew!!

Chicken
  A bird with small meat, found in the grassland. It will lay an egg every day
  if you can domesticate it. The egg is very high in protein and can be used in
  various recipes.

Rabbit
  It lives in burrowed holes in the grassland. The meat is very tender and
  light to the taste. Very delicious.

Field Mouse
  Capture it by placing a trap in the grassland. Although the meat is small, it
  is very tender and delicious. Even rat meat is an important food source. I'll
  eat it.

Pigeon
  A common bird found throughout the grassland. The meat is small and light to
  the taste. Tastes good broiled or simmered.

Goat
  Large animal found in the grassland. If captured, it can be domesticated and
  milked. The milk is highly nutritious. I'm going to try a recipe using milk.

Lynx
  A nocturnal animal found in the grassland. It looks like a large cat and
  lives off of smaller animals. The meat is large.

Squirrel
  A very cute animal that can be trapped and lives in the grassland. The meat
  is very tender and delicious.

******************
[2.3] - Ground
******************

There are six animals that can only be caught by looking at the ground and
hoping you are lucky enough to see them. This is all up to luck, you might find
everything very quickly or you might spend days in the game just searching the
ground. Good luck. There are only two locations for this method, and they are
the beaches and the jungle.

----------
Beach
----------

Crabs- that's what you will find on the sandy beaches. There are three crabs,
the Hermit Crab, the Sand Crab, and the Coconut Crab.

Hermit Crabs are somewhat slow, but I often found them on the edge of the
screen. You will need to nab them before they go off screen completely, but
this is not too hard to do. They have a cone-type shell on their back.

Sand Crabs are fast and small. They will scuttle quickly across the screen, so
you should be paying attention.

Coconut Crabs are slow and large. They have two big pincers, but are really
easy to catch. You should have no problem with these.

----------
Jungle
----------

Reptiles are found in the jungle. There are three critters, the Land Tortoise,
the Lizard, and the Snake.

Land Tortoises (turtle) are really slow and common. They are perhaps the
easiest to catch of all the ground creatures, but don't quote me on that.

Lizards are moderate in speed, they are not too hard to catch.

Snakes are fast and they wriggle all over the place, so they can be a challenge
to capture. If the tortoises are the easiest, these are the hardest.

******************
[2.4] - Small
******************

Mostly you will find these animals in the grassland; the only exception is the
duck, which can be found at Lake Caldera (the side with the hot spring).
Hunting in the grassland can be difficult, as the tall grass makes it difficult
to see the small animals. Some of these animals, the birds, can also be caught
in small traps, but you will have to hunt for the Rabbit, Raccoon, and Lynx.

----------
Trappable
----------

Pigeons are the smallest bird in the game, which makes them extra difficult to
see in the grassland hunting screen. I recommend trapping this one, though you
will not get feathers from it; feathers are easy enough to get anyway (they can
be found in the second plains/beach area, where you found Skye, by taking a
shortcut from the grassland and pushing logs to make it accessible).

Ducks are really easy to spot and shoot at Lake Caldera, but you can obtain
them sooner and closer to home by catching them in a trap.

Chickens are fairly easy to spot in the hunting screen in the grassland as they
stand out and are a decent size. However, you can only domesticate them if you
capture them in a trap.

----------
Hunting
----------

Rabbits can be found in the grassland during the day. They are slightly rare,
but they are the only small mammal found during daytime so they are easy to
recognize. They are hard to see on the hunting screen, so they can be really
challenging to kill.

Raccoons can be found in the grassland during the night. They are pretty common
and are recognizable by their squeaky chatter. They are not too difficult to
spot, but like all the smaller animals it is still kinda hard.

Lynxes can be found in the grassland during the night. They are rare, and look
a lot like the raccoons in the dark, their tan golden color hard to distinguish
from a raccoon's gray coat. However, they do not chatter, they are quiet except
for their movement through the grass. They are also a bit harder to spot on the
hunting screen, and may make low growling sounds.

******************
[2.5] - Large
******************

There are only three large animals, and they all have to be caught using a
large trap in order to be killed. They are the Deer and the Goat during the
day and the Boar at night. Be careful, boars will attack you if you try to
shoot them when they are not trapped. Traps will take between 1-3 days to
disappear, though glitched traps can take longer.

There are three methods of trapping these animals, use whichever you like!

----------
Method 1
----------

(This method was adapted from Kayshabeast's FAQ.) This method takes patience
and requires you to pay attention. With a, or preferably several, large traps
on hand as well as your bow and arrows, walk around the grassland. When you
spot one of the large animals, be careful. Keep it in sight but stay far enough
away that you don't scare it off (you may want to experiment to find the best
distance). Watch the animal for a bit to figure out its path, they move in a
series of straight lines and turns, sometimes they will just keep moving in a
circle, but I have found that rare. Walk a bit ahead of the animal's path and
place your trap, then get out of the way, watch and wait. If you are lucky, the
animal will continue on its course and get caught. Even if they turn a little
they might still be close enough, but sometimes they make a sharp turn and
never make it to your trap- infuriating, I know.

Note that you cannot use the glitch when doing this method!

----------
Method 2
----------

(This method was adapted from Paul Acevedo's FAQ.) This method only takes
patience with repetitive boring actions and luck. Take your large trap and
place it somewhere in the grassland; if you have wandered around it enough you
should know some locations where animals show up often, stick it there
preferably. Then just go into the cave and come back out. If something has
been caught you will be able to hear it crying out right away (you may need to
step away from the cave if the water is too loud). If you don't hear anything,
just repeat the process of leaving and returning to the grassland until you do.
Pretty simple, but it can be annoying. When you do catch something you will
need to place another trap to continue hunting.

Note that you can use the glitch if you want.

----------
Method 3
----------

This method is very similar to method 2, but it does have some advantages and
disadvantages over it. With this method you should be able to catch animals
much more often, almost every time you enter the grassland. However, it can be
a lot harder to find the animals you have trapped. This method takes memory-
remembering where you set your traps. Pretty much you will be placing a lot of
traps (10+), which you can either make and have on hand or use the glitch. You
just place them around the grassland in areas where you see large animals
appear a lot, then follow the same exiting into the cave and returning to the
grassland procedure mentioned above. You should hear the animal's calls of
distress fairly often. You might also capture animals while just wandering
around the grassland looking for other prey, so this is useful for saving time.
But it can be easy to forget where you set your traps, and it is hard to tell
where the animal's cries are coming from so it can take a while to find them.
Place new traps as the old ones are used up.

Note that you can use the glitch if you want, and it is helpful.


=========================
[3.0] - FISHING
=========================

Fishing can be done with either a spear or a rod (or a trap, but other than to
save time or avoid the fishing mini-games, they are mostly pointless). You can
actually catch a lot of fish with the spear, but you can catch all the fish
with the best rod, so I am writing this guide for that.

When you equip a rod, press Y near any body of water where fishing is
available. It does not matter if you are on a ledge high above the water, and
in fact some fish can only be caught in such a place. When you press Y the
fishing screen will open. The bobber is easily visible and will bob slightly
no matter where you are fishing, but you will definitely know when you get a
bite. The bobber will sink under the water completely. When this happens you
should press A and use the D-pad to 'pull' in your line. If it is a more common
easier to catch fish it will not offer much resistance, you can usually just
pull straight to you. If it is a harder one you will need to pull the line
in the opposite direction that the fish is pulling- basically, keep it away
from the edges of the screen- while also pressing down to pull it to you. Some
fish can snap your line, though this rarely happens.

Skye mentions that the moon and the tides affect fishing, but I am not sure
how much if at all. If you are having trouble catching a certain fish, you may
want to try at a different time or when the tide changes, or even the moon's
phase. Some of these fish are extremely rare and you can fish a spot dry
several days in a row and still not catch it. Keep trying.

I have made up my own locations for fishing, based on my own experience. These
may not be quite the same for everyone, but should be at least close. I define
a 'spot' as when you fish one area dry (as in, fish stop showing up) you move
along and once fish are present again you have reached a new spot. I also
define it loosely by my finding a new fish there, although technically these
may not be spots on their own at all. Some of these fish may actually be found
in several other areas that I have not listed- this is simply because I have
not found them there. If anyone has any more info, please contact me.

Note: For the fish, I will only go into detail on the ones I found the rarest
      or the most difficult to catch.

******************
[3.2] - Text
******************

Abalone
  A large one-sided clam found attached on the rocks. It has a bumpy textured
  shell which is well packed and meaty. A delicacy with a wonderful crunchy
  texture.

Short-neck
  The most commonly found clam along the beach. I can make the best tasting
  clam chowder with these. I'm going to need milk, vegetables and spice in
  order to make it.

Clam
  The meat is plump and fleshy. It's on the large side for a clam but it should
  be good either grilled or in a soup.

Scallop
  One of the larger clams. It lives deep in the ocean and is hard to find. The
  best chance to get them is when the tides recede. There's a large piece of
  meat in the middle.

Oyster
  It's supposedly called the "milk of the sea." Tasty and full of nutrients. I
  heard that you can eat these raw, but is it really okay? I don't want to get
  sick so I'll cook them instead.

Freshwater Clam
  Seems you can find these a lot where the river and ocean meet. One of the
  smaller clams. It tastes good when made into soup. I wonder how many I need
  in order to be filled?

Seaweed
  Seaweed washed ashore. A rather easy food source to obtain. Full of fiber and
  minerals, it tastes good when added to soup.

Mackerel
  This fish doesn't have a strong pull so it is rather easy to catch. Tastes
  good when grilled or dried.

Rock Bream
  A fish that can be caught along the shore. It has a distinct white and black
  stripe and a strong pull when fishing.

Sillaginoid
  A commonly caught, nice looking small fish. It has a tasty, light, delicate
  meat, which is good grilled or fried.

Balloon Fish
  From the puffer fish family but without the poison. It has a lot of spines
  and is tough to prepare. Not much meat from it despite the effort spent.
  Tastes good as soup.

Moray
  It has jagged sharp teeth that can hurt you badly when bitten. Despite having
  a harsh and grotesque appearance, it has a light, delicate, tasty white meat.

Sardine
  It swims in schools close to the water's surface. It doesn't have a strong
  pull so it's easy to catch. It doesn't fill you much but it tastes good when
  dried.

Sting Fish
  A fish that bites bait often and lives along the shore. It has a large head
  and mouth with bulging eyes but it tastes quite good. It can hurt you if you
  get stung by its fin.

File Fish
  It has a hard, rough skin so you need to skin it before preparing it. It's
  tasty white meat is light and delicate. The liver tastes exceptionally good!

Flat Fish
  An odd shaped fish with both eyes on one side of it's body. This tasty
  delicacy has a firm flesh. Tastes excellent prepared as a meuniere.

Sea Bream
  A bright, red colored, prime grade fish. Makes you feel good when it is
  caught. It tastes good in any dish, simmered or broiled.

Parrot Fish
  A large colorful fish with a hard, strong beak. Sometimes it will cut the
  fishing line.

Sweet Fish
  It only can be caught in a clean river. The presence of Sweetfish is proof of
  a rich, natural environment. Good to broil with salt!!

Cat Fish
  It can be caught in a river. Seems like it lives in the mud under the water.
  Smells muddy. Should deep fry.

Black Bass
  This fish lives in still freshwater. Eats smaller fish. White flesh is light
  and delicious.

Arowana
  A big ancient fish that lives in rivers. Eats smaller fish. Very big. Filling
  but it does not taste very good.

Carp
  This fish lives in slow moving freshwater. Need to remove all traces of soil
  otherwise it smells like mud. Should boil when cooking.

Eel
  Long freshwater fish. Easy to catch at night. Hard to grab because its skin
  is slimy. Fat and very good skewer broiled. Highly nutritious fish.

Crucian
  This freshwater fish is relatively easy to catch. It is flat and has little
  meat. It is not enough to ease my hunger.

Japanese Huchen
  A rare giant freshwater fish that is very cautious and hardly caught. Main
  characteristics are a big, long body, and a huge mouth.

Char
  Normally hides in the rocks of mountain streams and becomes active on a rainy
  day. Should fish when it rains if I want to catch this one.

Salmon
  Relatively big fish that swims upstream to spawn. Flesh has a nice red color.

******************
[3.3] - Shellfish
******************

These 'seafood' items are all found without actually fishing, but they are in
the same scrapbook section, which is why they are here. These items can all be
found on the ground, though in slightly different ways.

---------
Mounds
---------

Freshwater clams and short-neck clams can be found in the little mounds in the
sand on the first beach. If you walk over the mound '???' will appear and you
can press the A button to search them. Dig in the sand to uncover them.

---------
Pickups
---------

Oysters and Scallops can both be found on the second beach. They look like pink
shells and you just walk up to them and press A to pick them up, like coconuts.
They can only be found at low tide- the oysters right on the beach, and the
Scallops in the little cove past the big rock on the right that you can reach
when the tide is all the way out.

Abalone can be picked up at the first beach, at the end of that rocky path you
can access from the leftmost part of the beach. It is brown and looks like it
is supposed to.

Clams are the only shell that can be found by looking at the ground (like the
crabs). They don't move, so don't worry. You can find them on the same rocky
path to the left of the first beach where you find the abalone.

[3.4] - Ocean
******************

The ocean spans from the first beach where you washed ashore to the second
beach where you found Skye. Obviously, the tides may very well have an effect
on the fish you can catch, so my apologies for not having more in-depth
information on that. I will try to find out more.

The fish I had the most trouble finding and catching were the Moray, the Flat
Fish, the Sea Bream, and the Parrot Fish. Other than their location, I really
do not have much information to help you find them at the moment. I will look
into the tides and times more if I get the chance. Just keep fishing!

******************
[3.5] - River
******************

The river spans from the plains, where you live, with both sides having the
same fish, to the grassland with the outside of the ruins and the animals. The
river is not affected by the tides, nor the moon that I am aware. However, it
does vary with the weather and time of day. Most fish seem to be available at
any time, but there are a few that rely on specifics.

Eels can only be caught at night. They might only be available when spear
fishing, because I have not tested them with a rod yet...

Char can be caught when it is raining. I caught mine when it was clear though,
but I had a very hard time finding it and have not tried the area in the rain.

Carp are one fish I am uncertain on. I caught one (my only one) during the day.
Since it is the only fish that shares a location with another in the river, not
counting the crucian which is everywhere, and the eel is found at night it
might only be available in the day.

Rare fish, like the Japanese Huchen, the Salmon, and the Arowana might be a
little easier to catch during the rain. I am not certain on this.
