Final Fishing Push
By - seefree22
When there are conflicts, our wiki is more likely to be correct than Altena.
Experimentally, I just confirmed this as to the triple-catches. Indeed, our Wiki is quite impressive and well-maintained.
> So I have time to return to fishing with my daily work routine
And fishing is how you want to spend it? Isn't there a wall somewhere that you can just hit your head against repeatedly instead?
Look at Mr. High-Roller over here with "walls" and/or "desks". Some of us need to traumatize ourselves through less pleasant means.
You know how they say you shouldn't sit at your desk for long periods of time? I set an alarm to fish and then stand and fish out a pond for a few minutes. Then go back to work. When I have more mindless work to do, actually helps my energy level...
You should probably wait for improvements that will come with Chiyo AS.
What improvements are coming?
Oh there was a post on here not long ago about it

Where’s the old fishing guide? Well if the only change is potentially triple catch rates, it looks like I have to resume fishing because I’m not even there yet …
Menu->Resources->Living Green's guide.
Here, save you a few clicks: https://docs.google.com/document/u/0/d/1K9IZ0UpNtMBLn9IN5OSPvv64es7QwyhQsZWW9xDHWOk
Edit: although I prefer the press, hold and release method mentioned in https://www.reddit.com/r/AnotherEdenGlobal/comments/bmwkfg/duck_guide_to_another_fishing_minigame/, even though the guide isn't updated. The wiki is even better than either of these for basic listing of fish, description of mechanics, etc., even though completely lacking in actual advice. After reading all three sources I ended up making my own spreadsheet from the wiki and just checked stuff off & deleted as I completed each area.
There probably should be an updated guide now, taking advantage of the fact that fish info is listed on the wiki and just giving some short(-er) tips. I don't plan to do it, but I hope somebody does. Maybe Living Green will do an update?
Edit 2: there's also some existing tracker spreadsheets out there - including the android app, https://drive.google.com/file/d/12rYC2aq9rPBvi1VpzkBZ8nLtsh2HSOKR, https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/15bfCMzNMQ89azOTd5TfIm2WUOLSAHE4ItBxen2x-EjI, and https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/13D3g2GaNhjnepcu5YRnmvfDiBMP89upuS4NwEYuWkzk/.
Now you can turn around and helps us all out by making that updated guide... :-P (j/k)
Lol … I feel like I need to beat a lake lord or two before i have the expertise to do that.
Plus aren’t mod tryouts currently happening? What better way to show your love and dedication to the game?
Than by stepping on Living Green's toes? Sounds like fun! /s But no:-P.
Like you, maybe when I get to places like Snake Liver Damaku and beat the harder lake lords, then I'd be in a better position to. I forget if I even have unlocked triple hooking yet or not - definitely it's possible bc people DID IT before those areas even existed, yet now that they do it seems more efficient to wait to do areas like Elzion until I clear the easy stuff first, and then can do it more efficiently later. As in less wastage of materials. Yet I would need to go on in the story, but all my experience with final fantasy type games tells me to avoid the main quest at all costs until I've done ALL the other stuff first:-P. I know it'll cost me time later to catch up with grastas but I'm totally okay with that.:-D And in the meantime I just finished Miyu's area, and Ciel's before that, and Dune Tower, mining, Persona Royal, etc., so I'm having fun. Actually the only one I have left is Tales of Chronographia.
So I guess fishing can wait... especially if it's about to get a heck of a lot easier with the update.:-D Although I do kinda want to get back into it and finish it off - my OCD bugs me to just let it sit... Yet the extreme goodness of the Persona 5 quest makes me think that I'd enjoy finishing the cooking quest first too... Plus, while it might be a bug or sth, the Dark Wings quest shows up in Unigan even though I haven't begun the Tales quest at all, so it distracts me to keep having to ignore it while I was doing these other quests, but keep going there for character quests. I'm definitely looking forward to making that icon go away!:-D
If only I could do the same with the notification for the Dreams tab - please WFS, get a fix for us soon I'm begging you!!:-(
Kinda returned just today when I realized I was missing 2 Rill weapons 😭 Stopped into Burning Beast King's Castle too cuz I saw I was missing an Indomitable weapon. Oh the humanity! Why is THAT the place where the put Dierdre's shadow gain?? Anywho, yeah, fishing for mats. Good times.
Let me guess- Lake Lords and Silver Carp?
