Tips

By now, you’re probably getting the hang of fishing and what good timing, as you’ll be visiting the Angler’s paradise: Port Puerto and its neighbouring area, Tortuga Archipelago.

Annoyingly, even though both areas are situated next to the sea, the fishing spots are still limited in number. However, especially in Tortuga Archipelago, you can find a lot more fishing spots if you keep hugging the shorelines.

We don’t need to give you advice for catching the common fish, like the Breams and Pufferfish, besides patience as usual. Just be aware that the Pirate Carp in Port Puerto and the Tuna in Tortuga Archipelago may take a while to find, like all rare fish.

Blue is good; Gold is... probably too strong for you right now.

To find the Swordfish , Tortuga Archipelago’s Lordfish, head for the centre of the archipelago and if you’re lucky this blue fish should be swimming at the end of the semi-circle shaped wooden pier, in a big whirlpool.

Be vigilant as the Golden Swordfish can spawn in the same location–this is the hardest Lordfish to catch in the non-DLC game, so don’t be confused if you do zero damage. If Goldie appears, rest in the inn or your house to try and get rid of it.

Having made as splash in Port Puerto, check out the Lava Cave , by heading south-west from the Crowned Champion’s house atop Mt. Snowpeak, to try you hand at fishing for… lava fish!?

That’s right; you can fish in the lava, mostly in the southern part of the cave, past the Lava Golem and the Dragon Scab, where you see bright-orange fish swimming around.

There’s boss fish here too–the Volcanic Tuna , usually swimming to the left of the wooden pier in the south-east corner, past the Sacred Fire Tree. If it’s not here, curse your luck and sleep for a day, then come all the way back to see if your luck improves.
