My Time at Portia Wiki
Main article: Fishing

In My Time at Portia, it is only possible to go fishing in certain places where fish are pooled together, swimming in circles. These are called fishing spots and are marked on the map with purple icons of a fish (Map Icon Fishing Spot.png). There are currently 10 of these spots to choose from, with a specific assortment of fish in each one. Some fishing spots are not available right away and require progression along the story missions to access.

All areas can drop a Golden Ring, which begins The Lost Ring. After the Golden Ring is found, another one cannot be obtained.

Bassanio Falls[]

The Bassanio Falls fishing spot is near the base of the falls, in the river that divides the fields of Portia from the Eufaula Desert. It contains an easy to catch and low value fish, the Golden Salmon; however, it also contains the Goliath, which is much more difficult and valuable, despite being available early. This fishing spot is accessible by default.

Western Beach[]

This fishing spot is west of Portia Harbor, past the beach where the Madcrabs can be found. It contains more difficult and valuable fish, but it can be reached early, as the Madcrabs, Snaillobs, and Sea Urchins there are not aggressive. This fishing spot is accessible by default, but is a fairly long walk.

Starlight Island[]

The Starlight Island fishing spot is just west of the starting dock, about midway across the north end of the island. Because of how far away the fishing spot is from land but the fact that the Gladiator Fish is by far the most common fish found at this fishing spot, this fishing spot is a difficult to get to but can still be profitable. The player can fish here after completing the mission Adventure on Starlight Island. This fishing spot can be reached in a fairly short time with the aid of the Portia Harbor Dee-Dee Stop and/or a horse.

Profit and experience comparison[]

Multiplying the appearance chance of each fish or item (minus the Golden Ring, which can only be caught once) by its sell price and Exp shows that the Eufaula Desert Oasis fishing spot gives both the most Gols and the most experience per bite, on average. Note that this is a per bite average: it assumes the player is catching everything that shows up on their line, and it does not account for the time required to make various catches.
