Black – Cuttlefish (Frozen Lake) or Octopus (Docks)
Blue – Blue Fin Tuna (Docks)
Brown – Urchin (Docks or Dark Forest)
Pink – Jellyfish (PM Docks or PM Dark Forest)
Rainbow – Rainbow Trout (Docks)
Red – Red Snapper (Docks)


Actual results are not limited to the table above, which reflects my own gameplay experience and measurements. I recorded morning + clear weather catches first which are reflected above as “Always” and only included special conditions such as “PM” (Afternoon/Night) or “Rain” afterward.

Weather (snow and rain) did not seem to make any meaningful difference for fish availability in any season. The above table uniquely notes Flyingfish as being available on the Docks in the rain, but that is only because the single time I caught one at the Docks while measuring, it happened to be raining. I suspect that they are actually just a rarer drop at that location.

For real, this suit itches like CRAZY.


Can I do anything with these squeezed fish?
No, you can safely sell them. I collected mine as a trophy.

What do I do with all these ******* bottles??!
You can cry into them and try to sell your tears at the Night Market.

What do I do with all these ******* wind-up fish toys??!
The fisherman will buy them from you in bulk at a decent rate at the Night Market.

Does the time of day matter?
Yes. Some fish (eg. Jellyfish) are only available later in the day.

Does the weather/year/Night Market level matter?
It doesn’t seem to.
