If you are a fan of Stardew Valley, then you know there are times when things get boring, and you just want to give up the game. Well, that shouldn’t be the case since there are plenty of fun activities you can indulge in. Farming is great, but you can’t be doing that all the time.
Players have a luxury of options to explore regarding Stardew Valley professions and while at it, your character gets to master certain skills such as foraging, mining and slaying monsters. Furthermore, you can also unravel new and more effective gameplay strategies and even earn yourself more gold and other Stardew bundles.
Mini-games are a great way to go, and you can hardly do wrong in the Stardew Valley fishing mini-game; it’s comfortably the best of the lot. Fish live in water bodies such as in the Stardew Valley forest pond, lakes, rivers, and oceans. A wide variety of fish are available, and they differ not just in price but also in their craftiness. While certain fish make it very easy to catch, others are hard to come by and relatively difficult to catch. Certain fish can only be caught when it rains.
You can exercise your fishing abilities at the various water areas in the game. However, your chances of making a catch are higher at some levels than others. In fact, if luck decides to frown on you, all you’d get for your effort is junk.
Sounds terrible right?
Not quite! Junk can be useful too. If you’ve attained level four fishing skills, then you can recycle junk into a valuable item. Otherwise, you can sell it for a petty amount.
