Fishing Day

Fishing Day is a festival where the citizens of Portia compete in a fishing competition. It occurs on the 12th and 13th day of Month 1 between 08:00 - 15:00.

Prior to the festival, on Day 8, the player will receive a letter about the upcoming event. It reads:

Dear Citizen,
The annual Portia Fishing Day is happening in this Friday and Saturday! If you're interested in participating, bring your patience and fishing rod and register at the event!
— Town Hall

The player will keep all of the fish that they caught during the competition. These fish can be sold for Gols, donated to the Portia Museum's Aquarium for rewards, cooked or dried, or directly gifted to characters. Giving certain Emperor fish to Gale during Mission: Present for the Celebration for the Day of the Bright Sun is an easy way to gain many Relationship points with the town at once.

Festival preparation Edit

Fishing Day icon

Fishing Day map icon

At the start of the day of the festival, the player should check the map for the location of the Fishing Tourney, since it can be hosted at any fishing spot available to them. Reloading the day will reset the location of the competition, though once the first day has ended and saved, the location will be the same for both days. All locations have more types of fish and a higher rate of catching rare fish than usual while competing. To maximize the number of rounds competed in, the player should travel to the festival location immediately.

The player will need to bring a fishing rod as well as many Caterpillars to use as bait.

Additionally, the Fish Encyclopedia Skill allows the player to tell what a fish is before catching it, allowing them to skip over low-value fish and wait til a better fish bites. If the player does not have the skill but is of high enough level to have the skill points to get it, they can ask Phyllis for an Acupuncture treatment at Dr. Xu's Clinic to reset their skill points before Fishing Day.

Fishing in the competition

The player competes against three other random characters and has three minutes to catch as many fish as possible. Each fish is worth a different amount of points based on its type, length, and weight. All fish are kept once the festival is over.


All fish species can be caught in the event spot and the catch chances of all fishes are changed during the festival.

Fish Size Catch chance
Common 64.52%
Emperor 32.26%
King 3.23%

The following table's values are based on roughly 10 catches per fish type, excluding Kings due to their rarity.
