Versions Definitely plan on updating this later when I find more fish, S rankings and appropiate quests descriptions, awards' rewards (this game doesn't record it!). Of course correcting some of my mistakes. Version 0.80 - Lots of errors, blame myself for not proofreading! And added some more fish and better ranking ANDDDDD better methods explanations. Version 0.75 - Finally decided to submit what I have to GameFAQs. :) II. Introduction to Fishing Resort This fantastic fishing game was released in North America just past November of last year and it was barely getting the word out that I wouldn't had spotted this gem if it wasn't for a thread on NEO-GAF. A XSeed employee trying to support this game with images and tales of fun to be had! While I was supporting the thread, I was also trying to help the game to gain more recognition for being a wonderful relaxing fishing game elsewhere. Meanwhile I quickly noticed how difficult some of the fish were to be found. I decided to do my fish list in an excel spreadsheet to keep track of rankings as well as locations. Soon enough, I saw I had plenty to share on a XSeed forum and sure enough, other members were graceful and were just as helpful later on! This fish list is to help others to find out where this fish is found, what size it is possible to fish with, and what number it is on the index for quick reviewing. Of course on occasion when its that rare enough, or gotten enough comments about its obscure location, it'll be included in how to find it as well as what methods to be used to capture it. III. Method of Fishing As I was making this guide, I must confess that I'm using the Zelda's Gold Motion Plus built in wiimote. :) Other members insist I have a platinum copy of this game lol but I assure you, I don't and I fish consistently and a lot. I'll now describe to you my methods of fishing. First and foremost, I went into this game with intention of finding every darn fish there is. Even if I'd have to spend 200 hours (of right now lol) to get it. I did just that with the very first area I'm in. I level up in rank quite a bit while gathering enough points to buy better rods and reels as well as better bait. Its pretty hard at times but keep at it and you'll have plenty of points in no time. Also, I don't know if this helps or not, but if you're still having difficulty playing this game, try the bait and lure tutorials or go to your laptop setting and make sure the tutorial setting is on for their functional prompts. Targets on the bulletin board will definitely help a lot in rewarding extra points along with better ranking fish sizes. I use this scale for the following: Small is anything less than 1.64ft. Medium is anything between 1.64ft to 3.28ft (although medium rod/reel will pick up smaller than that too). Large from 3.28ft to 6ft. Anything beyond that is a XL. But this is my own scale imho that works best for me in selecting my rod/reel for these said fish. So far only thing that is definite of size is by bulletin board measurements and bait. With all that said, I'm doing this by the order of appearance in the Fishing Photoguide that you have in your suitcase in your hotel room. However do keep in mind, some fish can be found in other areas and sometimes with better results! When in doubt, look on your bulletin board and see the target cards for the fish for specific spots and unknown fish you haven't acquired yet. The # reflects their order in the index to be more specific. Thought this would be extra helpful without any further confusion. And finally, S rank is just merely a few inches in difference even from A rank too, so you can count on that final fish you'd want to be in that size. Only huge huge fish can jump in feet in rank sizes, not super small ones so don't fret too much on what rod/reel on those. You may even catch much better S ranking fish than me. :) I only put in my own examples for what counts for S rank size in my game. Read from top to bottom of each page. I'd try to keep 3 fish per page (using the text blur on most cases) even with those annoying ones placed in the center folds lol. And to make sure, N = North, S = South, W = West, E = East. You also notice that there are some locations that are not found in that area, but in a later area you can access by buying a fishing license or moving from your hotel. IV.

The right area is easy to miss! Feest Cove is another area that easily missed if you're not careful to find its entrance. Its right next to Big Catch Rock a ways down but before the pathway to Golden Cliff. One of my favorite places for a seahorse and a Ocellaris Clownfish is the trio of small black rocks to the right near the entrance to the beach from the hotel/lodge path. You can cast at the main rock and let it bounce. You'd be only a feet away but you can at least see the tiny fish you need to catch! Pacar Beach Page 13 #194: Black Sea Bream - S rank 1.66ft - Villa Mirador #022: Dogtooth Tuna - B rank 3.77ft - Shallow Area #030: Thamnaconus Modestus - S rank 1.06ft - Villa Mirador Page 14 #066: Calfornia Corbina - S rank 1.48ft - Pacar Beach (E) #067: Mackerel - S rank 1.26ft - Villa Mirador #197: Clown Triggerfish - S rank 0.76ft - Pacar Beach (E) Page 15 #111: Trevally - A rank 3.20ft - Villa Mirador #182: Red Sea Bream - A rank 1.97ft - Villa Mirador (Kayak to the far left near the rock edge.)*Credit goes to PBGamer89 #038: Bluefin Trevally - A rank 3.63ft - Villa Mirador Page 16 #020: Rock Porgy - D rank 1.51ft - Pacar Beach (W) #170: Bonefish - A rank 2.44ft - Shallow Area (Try far east of the area.) #021: Striped Beakfish - E rank 1.40ft - Villa Mirador *Location Notes Villa Mirador is where you can fish from the dock but also to take out in a kayak and go as far as you can to the ocean.

The locations are pretty huge. I plan to update more on this. Especially on Acanthodes. Kanan Lake Page 27 #154: Brown Trout - S rank 1.05ft - Big Kanan (S)/Kerikil Calm (Downstream) #207: Lake Trout - A rank 2.05ft - Big Kanan (S) #027: Walleye - S rank 3.39ft - Foliage Gate Page 28 #044: Brook Trout - S rank 1.69ft - Big Kanan (S)/Kerikil Rapids (Downstream) #129: Burbot - D rank 2.60ft - Kanan Railway #041: Pink Salmon - A rank 2.04ft - Kanan Eyelet Page 29 #081: Steelhead - A rank 2.78ft - Big Kanan (N) (They look like large bullets with their round heads being slightly darker than their bodies.) #040: Cutthroat Trout - B rank 0.94ft - Reed Point #080: White Sturgeon - B rank 20.97ft - Emperor Hyde Hall (Middle of it) *Titan/Infinity/Rainbow; keep in orange range!* Even with rainbow bait doesn't attract it 100% of the time, so expect a few retries. Orange range part credit goes to Erdnuckel01. Page 30 #124: Rainbow Trout - S rank 1.68ft - East Sparse Rock/Kerikil Waterfall #181: Muskie - A rank 4.07ft - West Sparse Rock Page 31-32 #131: Hyneria - A rank 15.87ft - East Sparse Rock *Titan/Infinity/Rainbow; CORNER them and keep in green range!* *Location Notes Now you see I say keep in orange range for White Sturgeon? I meant it. Do NOT give that fish any slack, because it'll dive on you and just break the line. If you're struggling, make sure you have a good rank and a good rod/reel and finally a good fishing method (reel in short bursts works for me). Also take care to follow instructions in keeping your wiimote in line with the fish. As for the Hyneria, they love to swim near the shore. BLOCK their way to the rest of the water by facing the shore and making sure you're baiting in front of them too. It helps to cast close to your boat while you're not giving them any sort of marginal distance to escape from you. This is the best way to fish these. Green range is just advisory to keep from losing or breaking the line during their "escape". Keep in mind they'll fight for the first half and then finally get tired which you'll notice their lack of speed and you'll be able to reel them in short bursts. And you must notice the *Titan/Infinity/Rainbow, which is the best 3 star XL rod/reel with the best bait. CTRL+F "Help Master" for more info. Kerikil River Page 33 #028: Japanese Dace - B rank 1.08ft - Kerikil Rapids (Up & Downstream) #198: Japanese Salmon - A rank 1.21ft - Kerikil Calm (Both) Page 34 #091: Fat Minnow - S rank 0.51ft - Kerikil Calm (Both) #026: Japanese Char - B rank 0.77ft - Kerikil Rapids (Both) Page 35-36 #??? (Bothriolepis, a Medium sized fish found in both sections of the Calm) *Location Notes Obviously... I'm still hunting this rare Bothriolepis. Tidur River Page 37 #185: Yellowfin Goby - A rank 0.61ft - Villa Mirador/Southern River Downstream #153: Crucian Carp - S rank 1.05ft - Southern River Upstream/Northern River (Upstream) #024: Japanese Huchen - S rank 4.14ft - Northern River (Upstream) Page 38 #175: Striped Mullet - S rank 0.63ft - Villa Mirador/Southern River Downstream #180: Magoi - S rank 2.53ft - Southern River Upstream/Northern River Upstream Page 39 #078: Chum Salmon - S rank 2.47ft - Kanan Eyelet/Southern River (Downstream) #049: Silver Salmon - S rank 2.54ft - Reed Point/Southern River (Upstream) Page 40 #166: Sockeye Salmon (F) - A rank 1.99ft - Reed Point/Southern River (Upstream) #165: Male Sockeye Salmon - S rank 2.09ft -Reed Point/Southern River Downstream Page 41 #085: Grass Carp - A rank 5.71ft - Tidur Waterfall #002: Black Carp - C rank 5.34ft - Tidur Waterfall Page 42 #065: Bighead Carp - A rank 6.55ft - Northern River (Downstream) #133: Silver Carp - D rank 3.79ft - Northern River (Downstream) Page 43-44 #??? (Cheiracanthus, a Small/Medium fish found in Northern River's Downstream) *Location Notes Still looking for that rare Cheiracanthus. Panas Jungle Page 45 #146: Piranha - B rank 1.14ft - Rootroof Stream #201: Armored Catfish - S rank 0.64ft - Emerald Marsh #035: Cardinal Tetra - S rank 0.21ft - Emerald Marsh Page 46 #007: Apapa - A rank 2.58ft - Rootroof Stream #114: Peacock Bass - S rank 3.08ft - Panas Lake/Craigie Stream #163: Payara - B rank 3.05ft - Emerald Marsh Page 47 #010: African Pike - A rank 1.84ft - Rootroof Stream #158: Black Ghost Knifefish - C rank 1.07ft - Mangrove Pool*Credit to PBGamer89 #210: Redtail Catfish - S rank 4.16ft - Mangrove Pool Page 48 #132: Pacu - A rank 0.81ft - Rootroof Stream #015: Arowana - A rank 4.09ft - Emerald Marsh Page 49 #014: Alligator Gar - S rank 9.96ft - Mangrove Pool #156: Platinum Alligator Gar - B rank 9.31ft - Mangrove Pool #149: Pirarucu - S rank 15.24ft - Panas Lake/Panas Waterfall Page 50 #109: Dorado - E rank 2.94ft - Emerald Marsh Page 51-52 #152: Pteraspis - A rank 0.99ft - Emerald Marsh *Credit to Rouke *Location Notes Black Ghost Knifefish is quite small and fast. Watch out for them when you're in the area. Pteraspis was found between the two sand dunes on the right with a little water in between them. Yeah. My method is to turn the wiimote to the left with the buttons facing to your left and cast horizontally to the right. Take a few retries to get it down right, and when you do, expect to pull up a lot of armored catfish. I got mine after 3 ingame days, hope you have patience! Malam Jungle Page 53 #053: Guppy - S rank 0.21ft - Twin Rock Stream #157: Platinum Guppy - A rank 0.20ft - Twin Rock Stream #136: Butterfly Fish - A rank 0.81ft - Twin Rock Stream Page 54 #106: Betta - S rank 0.34ft - Twin Rock Stream #031: Elephantnose Fish - A rank 1.02ft - Shak Garden Stream Page 55 #160: Ocellated Snakehead - S rank 1.26ft - Shak Garden Stream #001: Channa Lucius - S rank 1.47ft - Malam Mountain (S) #107: Giant Snakehead - S rank 2.95ft - Malam Mountain (E) Page 56 #176: Polypterus - S rank 2.54ft - Malam Mountain (W)/Malam Mountain (N) #212: Royal Knife Fish - S rank 1.68ft - Malam Mountain (S) Page 57 #138: Papuan Black Bass - S rank 4.20ft - Malam Outlet #089: Tigerfish - S rank 4.93ft - Malam Mountain (W)/Malam Mountain (N) Page 58 #112: Nile Perch - S rank 6.25ft - Malam Mountain (W)/Malam Mountain (S) #140: Barramundi - S rank 6.29ft - Malam Outlet Page 59-60 #055: Climatius - B rank 0.38ft - Twin Rock Stream *Long Drive/Omega/Quick Hitter Regular* *Location Notes Barramundi looks a lot like Nile Perch except its white and Nile Perch don't hang out in Malam Outlet so you can be sure its a Barramundi. :) Climatius is easily can be seen and pull up. Just expect a rare fish to be.. well rare in appearance. :) There's no other fish in that area that fits its shape or color. Looks like a blue long bullet, and no smaller than a Butterfly Fish. The Oceans Couple of things; because there's a huge area we're fishing blind boat/ferry side with variety of sizes, I'll be sure to split rod/reel with a Heroic/Omega type (S/M) or a Titan/Infinity (L/XL). If its a small fish only possible to fish with the smaller rod, I'll make note with a *. Also, wide range bait yields pretty good results for me. Please use that bait and cast CLOSE to your boat to get much better results. Don't forget there's 3 different oceans for different fish. I'll make note of specific line in difference of fish on the map to tell you how far you can go for each area. Press + during Trolling to view the map during. Also take great care to notice that there are looped routes all over. I think maybe at least 10 of them and not all of them are loops. One actually went across to another loop, so take care to see where you're headed. Once you get your Cruiser, you can apply all 5 rods that you buy more from the shop. When trolling for a specific fish, I use all 5 rods and all 5 same colored lures for each one. If you're not sure, feel free to spread them out to see if you can attract another depending on your array of tackle(s). Because of the color of tackle is kinda a mix bag to differentiate on different monitors/screens, I'll number them instead 1-5 from left to the right. Finally, do NOT take my tackles to be 100% effective. I'm still testing this as I'm playing still and still learning better tackles to be used. And after checking out the map, Tropical ocean fish seem to takes up about 70% of the map from the bottom, and you have your Temperate and Frigid in the north which seem to bleed into each other quite often. IMHO anyway. Tropical Ocean - Pretty much anything west below from the sharp tip of the island (it is shaped like a Marlin!) to below far south of Tidur Area east.

Credit to sdw4572 for name/video; serenaz1 for reconfirming location and white tackle. *Location Notes The diary had Sepuluh listed as Spool for some reason. Just a FYI. Milkfish is rare for me for some odd reason. You can find it just straight west from the dock of Spool Island at least south of the south tip of the main island. Swordfish is pretty close to the mainland (Teman Beach) when I first got him. Temperate Ocean - Far south of Tidur area and above around to the north side of the tip of the island to the west but not beyond Sembilan Island horizontal line. But still, you'd find some trolling routes and their fish bleed into Frigid too or vice versa. Page 11 #019: Chicken Grunt - D rank 1.46ft - Ferry* #077: Japanese Whiting - S rank 1.24ft - Ferry* #141: Oilfish - S rank 5.92ft - Trolling and trolling you DAILY #068: Spanish Mackerel - A rank 3.06ft - Ferry Page 12 #161: Japanese Amberjack - A rank 3.97ft - Ferry #102: Rainbow Runner - S rank 4.20ft - Ferry Page 13 #183: Octopus - S rank 2.52ft - Ferry* #088: Giant Squid - S rank 23.22ft - Trolling East/Tidur Area #5 tackle Page 14 #058: Pacific Bluefin Tuna - S rank 10.28ft - Trolling (Frigid!) #1/5 tackle #169: Great White Shark - C rank 16.20ft - Trolling East #4/5 tackle Page 15-16 #097: Dunkleosteus - E rank 17.00ft - Trolling Sembilan Island Area #2 Tackle *Location Notes Great White Shark can be found from a route that is going south from Tidur's River area that loops around to the right and up and back. You'll hate that Oilfish with passion. But you'll soon learn that after you shake and flip that wiimote, you can just let it slack and lose it. I did this with most of the fish I don't even need. This helps save a LOT of time trolling. Thankfully most of the fish are unique in their appearance, how they battle, and how LARGE. Oilfish do NOT do anything special besides hiding. Marlins are obvious with their flipflops and their long noses. Sharks including the final fish for 3 oceans has water balls in front of them. Squids and Octopus are obvious by their color and tentacles. Dunkleosteus is special, it has a HUGE shadow! :D Dunkleosteus is best achieved by leaving south from the west side of Sembilan Island's coast (and I'm talking close here), you'll recourse to the west from the south and you should hit a spot to encounter this beast. Frigid Ocean -Anywhere above the horizontal line past Sembilan Island.

I found it an extreme halfway NE of the main island. There's two different routes for the Helicoprion and Dunkleosteus! Take the west going south route of Sembilan Island for the Dunkleosteus, take the east going south route of Sembilan Island for the Helicoprion. Helicoprion's loop is much shorter than Dunkleosteus whereas you would just better off restarting back when you start heading north outside of Sembilan Island range. Sembilan Island #016: Eastern Blue Devil Fish - A rank 1.63ft #128: Purple Queen - D rank 0.26ft #096: Giant Grouper - A rank 8.14ft #137: Pink Anemonefish - A rank 0.33ft #199: Red-bellied Fusilier - A rank 1.43ft #214: Rolfosteus Canningensis - B rank 0.58ft - THIS FISH IS TINY. *Location Notes Purple Queen was my last fish. Because of its size, I imagine its very very hard to spot. But I got it right after I got Rolfo. Dumb luck I know. As for Rolfo, I used Heroic/Omega/Rainbow near the pillar rock on the right of the deck but from facing north on deck, not on the right edge. Ditto with Purple Queen. Sepuluh Island/Spool Island #130: Permit - A rank 2.85ft #206: Rooster Fish - A rank 4.04ft Credit goes to serenaz1. #209: Red Emperor (Young) - A rank 0.99ft #087: Tarpon - S rank 8.30ft #074: Giant Trevally - A rank 4.01ft *Location Notes Because the compass (or my sense of direction) wasn't... my best suit, I made directions from your own perceptive as you get on the beach from the dock. Rooster Fish can be seen far from the beach far right of the dock of the island. You can't see their "rooster" fins but you can see their long bodies that no other fish has any similarity to. Tarpon was dumb luck on my part too. Similar to Rooster fish, I was casting far from the left part of the beach opposite of the dock of the island. Used Titan/Infinity/Rainbow. Giant Trevally can be found ferrying and from the dock of the island. Safir Cave #100: Football Fish - A rank 1.62ft #204: Frilled Shark - A rank 7.89ft #189: Goblin Shark - A rank 12.00ft Credit goes to sdw4572 #086: Pudgy Cuskeel - A rank 7.92ft #196: Flapjack Octopus - S rank 0.83ft #104: Barreleye - C rank 0.50ft - Credit goes to sdw4572 #205: King of Herrings - B rank 19.71ft *Location Notes Goblin Shark and Barreleye can be found at the same spot. They're found at the far right end of the cave CLOSE to the rock wall. You'll not spot them unless you're grinding against the rock wall, and they're picky eaters, expect a few to miss. Barreleye fish is the smallest and HARD to spot.

There are Common, Special and Miraculous type of awards. Common is tentative as I type this, because obviously getting S rank on all of them fish is going to be... INSANE. But as far as I know, Common Awards do not reward you anything...except for Miraculous. Special pretty much covers all of the things you have done for the first time except losing fish 100 times. :) And finally Miraculous Awards are special because they do reward you something. Unfortunately, just like with quests, I do not recall which ones rewarded you with what except a select few. They don't record that ingame, however, thankfully you can click on the questionable awards to see what you need to do to achieve it. *Common Awards Total Caught: Bronze = 10, Silver = 100, Gold = 500, Platinum = 1000 New Catch Total: Bronze = 10, Silver = 50, Gold = 100, Platinum = 150 S Rank Total: Bronze = 10, Silver = 50, Gold = 100, Platinum = 150 Sniper Casting Normal: Bronze = 400pts, Silver = 500pts, Gold = 600pts, Platinum = 700pts Sniper Casting Master: Bronze = 400pts, Silver = 500pts, Gold = 600pts, Platinum = 700pts Kayak Racing Normal: Bronze = 1:00, Silver = 0:55, Gold = 0:50, Platinum = 0:46 *Note: Inside means before these times.

If that list doesn't help you, you can go to http://xseedgames.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?35-Fishing-Resort for more info on hand and plenty of images are in there. I'll be in there trying to help as much as I can. :) 2. Where is the 3 star XL rod/reel? Do all of the side quests and the Help Master award will reward you them. 3. How do I get to Safir Cave? Do fish at all of 8 main locations and be sure to find 80 types of fish while saving up 100,000 points! Go back and talk to the guy to gain the Cruiser. Then you can sail on your own, its at the topmost part of the island, NOT the tunnel no, but go through it and go to your right. You should see a couple of orange floaters and a dock that you can get off at and talk to the guy for his raft to go inside the cave. :) 4. How do I catch fish in the ocean? While ferrying or boat side, you need Wide Range bait for effective results and be sure to cast close to your boat. Wide Range bait is available at fish shop. 5. How do you catch those Legendary last page fish??? I'm still not sure at this point but its really down to sheer luck that I've found and caught them. The only one I've seen was Hyneria. Rest was fished at random. 6. How do you catch that MONSTER Hyneria/White Strugeon/King of Herrings? Hyneria I suggest to keep in green range, White Strugeon in orange range, and King of Herrings... more of an orange range too. Remember they're fighting for their lives lol, so you should expect them to be fighting you for a while. They're big fish, and it takes a while for them to get tired (slow in speed) before you can reel them in. What I do is do a tug/slack method, whereas I reel/pull a block, then slack/wait for a block, and then repeat. I findit helpful if you're facing a closed off section where they cannot run far from you. This isn't effective 100% of the time though, but do the tug/slack a block method to keep that fish from "swimming" too much. Eventually they'll get tired and you can reel them in better in the second half. It is a bit long and exhaustive method but its a surefire way to ensure you keep your catch from breaking the line on you. It IS recommended that you have the best rod/reel and a very high rank. I got these guys with no problem at World Champion, a rank below Fishing King. IX. Legal Stuff This document property of Philiaravon/Philia. All rights reserved.
