How to Get the Fishing Rod In Story Of Seasons: Friends Of Mineral Town
What’s a simulation game with water bodies if there’s no fishing right? Well, you can start fishing in Friends Of Mineral Town, but you won’t have a fishing rod at the beginning. There are some steps to follow if you want to get your hands on the fishing rod. Here’s what you have to do:
Go to this location to meet a character called Zack.
Once you head inside the wooden house on Mineral beach, you can talk to him. He will tell you that he has a Fishing Rod that he wants to give away. Zack doesn’t fish but he wants you to have it instead of throwing it away. Simply take it from him and you will have your very own Fishing Rod in Story Of Seasons: Friends Of Mineral Town.
Note that you can interact with Zack from 11 am to 4 pm on any day apart from a holiday. Plus, you should have talked to Zack at least once before and he should be inside his house. There also needs to be space in your tool inventory to get this rod.
How to Fish in Friends Of Mineral Town?
- To catch some fish with the fishing rod, you have to equip the rod first.
- Then press the Tool Button to cast the line in front of your character.
- Now it’s a waiting game. You have to wait until a fish bites.
- When it does bite, you will see that the bobber will shake.
- At the right time, you need to press the Tool Button quickly to reel in the fish.
- Sometimes, the fish can escape but don’t worry, you can try again.
Note that some locations don’t have any fish at all, so fishing there will be a waste of time. During such situations, it is best to start fishing elsewhere.
The type of fish will be determined by the location of fishing and season. If you keep trying at different locations and upgrading the Fishing Rod, you might even end up on some rare items and Guardian-class fish.
