Hello everyone! In this tutorial, we will introduce the simplest fishing start among the various fishing starts mentioned before as part of the millionaire brewing process in Stardew Valley.
Day 2: Fishing with the Bamboo Pole
We won’t discuss the first day, but on the second day, you’ll receive a Bamboo Pole. Head straight to the Mines Lake for fishing. Since the Bamboo Pole is slow at catching fish, you’ll only reach Level 3 in fishing by the end of the day. In the evening, go home and sell all the fish. In this example, we sold fish for 2000 gold.
Day 3: Upgrading the Fishing Pole and Fishing Tips
On the third day, you’ll have 2500 gold in the morning. At 9 AM, go to Willy’s to upgrade your fishing pole. If you’re skilled, you can buy Fish Soup and fish for Catfish in the river. Alternatively, you can choose to buy Bait and fish at Mines Lake. Here are some fishing tips:
- After reaching Level 4, you don’t need to cast at maximum distance. Just make sure the distance is sufficient to not affect your catch rate and save some time.
- Pay attention to the yellow exclamation mark above your character’s head and press the button immediately. The difference in reaction time can greatly impact your results.
- During the fishing mini-game, click quickly and lightly to keep the bobber steady, which is the most important aspect.
- Keep the fish in the green bar’s upper-middle area to increase reaction time. The rest is a matter of practice.
When you catch a fish, press and hold the left mouse button to cast as the fish flies towards you. Don’t wait for it to reach your character’s head before pressing. Aim for seamless transitions. Place the chest nearby to save time and switch quickly when eating. In the evening, carry the fish you want to sell and fish until 2 AM, when you’ll pass out. Your fishing level should be almost Level 6.
Day 4: Selling Fish and Continuing to Level Up
On the fourth day, sell the fish. In this example, all fish were sold, but you can actually sell only 2000 gold worth of fish and save the rest in the chest for selling the next day. Go back to Mines Lake and fish all day until the evening, reaching Level 7.5.
If you’re interested, you can try to reach the maximum level on the seventh day, but it’s challenging. The fastest attempt was still slightly short. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry if you can’t catch many fish at first.
Day 5: Reviewing the Earnings
On the fifth day, sell the fish from the fourth day, as well as any other Crystal Balls or items. With 2004 gold left after buying a backpack, sell fish in the evening for about 6800 gold. The next day, you’ll have 11000 gold.
Many players are confused about this amount of money, so we’ve detailed the earnings. In total, you’d have sold 8500 gold worth of fish the previous day, and including the 3000 gold in the chest, that’s already 10,000 gold in one day. It should be easy to earn more than 10,000 gold per day from fishing in the game, but it’s okay if you can’t catch that many fish initially.
