Obtaining | the fishing rod is very simple: talk to Toby at the Fishing Co. He'll give | you one for free. Now wasn't that easy? | | A new feature in Tree of Tranquility (compared to past Harvest Moon games) is | that the fishing rod is actually upgradeable like the watering can, axe and | other standard tools. The fishing rod has 5 levels: starter, iron, copper, | silver and gold. | | In order to upgrade your fishing rod, you'll need two things: money (1000G | for iron, 2500G for copper, 5000G for silver, 10000G for gold), and the | corresponding mineral (Iron for iron, Copper for copper, Silver for silver, | and Gold for - you guessed it - gold). Minerals are obtained from mining | ores and having Mira appraise them. | | Alternatively, you can also outright purchase the next level fishing rod from | the General Store: but in order to do so, you must already have the previous | level (so the Copper rod is only for sale if you've already obtained the Iron | rod). You don't need to obtain all the levels the same way, you can purchase | an Iron rod, upgrade it to a Copper rod, then purchase the Silver rod if you | so desire. But beware - purchasing a new tool is three times more expensive | than upgrading (3000G for iron, 7500G for copper, 15000G for silver, 30000G | for gold). | | What good does upgrading your fishing rod have, though? It has numerous | effects: | | - Less stamina use for the same amount of effort (see stamina below). | | - Increased likelihood of catching higher-grade fish. | | - The ability to catch fish that can't be caught with lower-grade rods. | | - Easier to reel in the same type of fish (compared to lower-grade rod). | | - The ability to cast farther. | | There are several important fish that simply can't be caught without an | upgraded rod, so upgrading is crucial. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | How to Fish | | Fishing in Tree of Tranquility is a relatively easy process. Once you have | your rod, simply go to one of the several fishing spots, equip the rod and | use it by holding the WiiMote horizontally, quickly pulling it back to | vertical, then quickly flicking it forward, mimicking the actual act of | casting a fishing line. If you're using the Classic Controller, just press A. | Unlike some recent Harvest Moon games, you won't actually see fish in the | water. Instead, you must simply wait patiently while your hook dangles until | something bites. | | When something bites, you'll hear an audible 'splash' noise, you'll feel | a vibration in the WiiMote (if using it), and you'll see the hook start to | get pulled. When this happens, pull the WiiMote up vertically and wiggle the | nunchuk as fast as you can - or, if you're playing with the Classic | Controller, just press A as fast as you can. The WiiMote motion is intended | to mimic the actual act of reeling in a fish. | | If you successfully reel in the fish, it will appear in your hands and you | can either drop it or put it in your rucksack. If you fail, it will swim off | and you'll have to cast again. | | If you have an levelled-up fishing rod, you can power it up by holding it | vertical for longer (for the WiiMote), or by holding the A button longer. | It's necessary to power your rod up to catch better fish, cast further, or | to use less stamina. | | Only same-type fish will stack in your rucksack, so if possible ship | somewhere close to your house to have access to a fridge or shipping bin. | This especially applies if you're fishing for profit, not for a specific | type of fish. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Stamina | | Stamina use while fishing is interesting. Casting your line will use no | stamina, and neither will sitting there waiting for a fish. The only time | stamina is consumed is when a fish is resisting and you're trying to reel it | in. | | This makes for some very interesting strategy, because this is the only tool | usage in the game where you can run out of stamina halfway through using a | tool. With other tools, you know if one more use will deplete your stamina | fully, but with a fishing rod it's dependent on how fast you reel in the | fish. | | Stamina is consumed equally by time no matter what fish is being reeled in: | better fish just take more time to reel. Stamina is also consumed when you | catch a junk item, like a boot or a can. | | As mentioned above, better rods take less stamina to reel in their fish, so | upgrade when you get the chance. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Why Fish? | | Fishing has many important uses in the game. Its usage is not as varied as | mining and some other activities, but it is equally important: | | - Profit. Fishing is a great way to make some extra money. Many fish sell | for upwards of 200G, making it easy to make some extra cash in your spare | time. | | - Power Berry. Fishing is the only way to obtain a certain Power Berry. To | obtain it you must level your rod up to level 3 (note: you don't need to | upgrade it for this Power Berry, just level it through usage). The next | time you cast after that, you'll fish up this Power Berry. | | - Food. Fish make great dishes, and are the ingredients in dozens of the | game's recipes. | | - Completion. One of the items accessible on the information screens is a | "Fish List", which contains a list of all the possible fish obtained from | the rivers and ocean. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete | this too. | | - Goddess Recipes. By far the most important reason to fish is that every | single goddess recipe requires at least one fish: | - Carp (a fish) for Daren's (the first tree). | - Char (a fish) for Ben's (the second tree). | - Saury (a fish) for Collin's (the third tree). | - Wood Fish (a fish) for Alan's (the fourth tree). | - Tuna (a fish) for Edge's (the fifth tree). | Daren's tree also requires a Good Herb Fish, a fish-related dish that must | be cooked yourself. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Tips for a Successful Expedition | | If you're going on a fishing trip with the intention of bringing back a nice | haul, here are a few tips: | | - Choose your spot carefully. Some spots have much better fish available | than others, and there's no point spending all day at a spot when there's | better fish to be had elsewhere. Pay attention to your rod level when | checking spots - one spot might have better fish, but they might not be | catchable with your current rod. | | - Use the weather. Certain weather patterns are better for fishing, most | notably rain. This is especially convenient given that rainy days mean | no crop watering, adding to the time you can spend fishing. | | - Get there early, stay late. The best fishing times are early in the | morning and late at night, so either plan to spend all day there or do | your chores around mid-day when the fish are less active. | | - Bring stamina-restoring items. Fishing depletes your stamina fast, | especially before you get any Power Berries or upgrade the rod: restoring | items will help. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL, | any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails | or Chips). The best purchaseable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL | (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelette (550G from Pineapple Inn) and | Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets). | | - Decide whether to bring a match set. On the positive side, a match set | allows you to cook one of the fish you eat for stamina restoration. On | the negative side, it takes up a spot in your rucksack. If you're fishing | near the ocean, where all the bonfire pits are located, it's a good idea | to bring one; but it's useless if you're fishing in the river. | |\ | \___________________________________________________________________________ |_____________________________________________________________________________| #########################################################################[FCH]# _______________________________________________________________________________ \ \ \ \__________________________________________________________/ / / / \ \ \| |/ / / \ \ | The Fish Chart | / / \ \ | | / / \ \| "A bad day of fishing is better than |/ / \ | a good day of work." -Author Unknown | / \| ______________________________________________________|/ _________| | | ___________| | / |/This is a giant quick reference chart of every fish, its availability in | different seasons, its availability in different locations, and its sale | price.

_ _ _ {FCR} _ | Fish and Crustacean Recipes | | Many, many recipes involve fish. Dozens. And while in the above fish listing, | all the recipes involving specific fish are listed, there are a number of | recipes that simply require the use of any fish. These are listed here. | | Note that all of these recipes have a quality rating. For more information on | how the quality of a particular dish is determined, see the Fish Recipe | Mechanics section later in this guide. | | Recipes that can be made using any type of fish: | Marinated Fish | Herb Fish | Sushi | Sashimi | Bouillabaise | Meuniere | | Additionally, a few recipes involve crustaceans. Crustaceans are lobsters, | prawn and rock lobsters, and any of the three can be used in these recipes. | Note that some of these recipes have quality ratings, but the quality is | based on the fish used, not the crustacean. | | Recipes that can be made using any type of crustacean: | Bouillabaise | Seafood Doria | Seafood Fried Rice | Seafood Gratin | Seafood Pizza | Seafood Rice | Seafood Stew | Southern Fried Rice | Southern Omelette | Tempura Buckwheat Noodles | | For a full listing of the ingredients and utensils in every recipe, see my | Recipe guide at http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/wii/file/933022/53834 | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {BIT} _ | Beach-Related Items | | There are several items that can be picked up at the beach, and this seems | like as good a place as any to list these. | _ _ _ | Algae | | Obtained : Fished from the Ocean | Sale Price : 10G | Uses : None, but drains stamina when fished up | _ _ _ | Boot | | Obtained : Fished from the Ocean | Sale Price : 10G | Uses : None, but drains stamina when fished up | _ _ | Can | | Obtained : Fished from the Ocean | Sale Price : 10G | Uses : None, but drains stamina when fished up | _ _ _ | Clam | | Obtained : Found on any beach | Sale Price : 90G | Uses : Recipes (ingredient in Clam Soup, Grilled Clam, Sauteed Clam, | Seafood Doria, Seafood Rice, Seafood Stew) | _ _ _ | Coral | | Obtained : Found on any beach | Sale Price : 50G | Uses : None, besides sale | _ _ _ | Pearl | | Obtained : Found on beach | Sale Price : 300G (White), 800G (Black) | Uses : Jewelry, Journey Rucksack (Black) | _ _ _ _ _ | Seashell | | Obtained : Found on any beach | Sale Price : 70G (Common), 140G (Fancy) | Uses : Daren's Rainbow recipe (common), sale | _ _ _ _ _ _ | Sea Urchin | | Obtained : Found on any beach | Sale Price : 700G | Uses : Eat raw (restores 100 stamina), recipe (Grilled Sea Urchin) | _ _ _ _ | Seaweed | | Obtained : Found on any beach | Sale Price : 40G | Uses : Recipes (Potato Miso Soup, Seaweed Miso Soup) | _ _ _ _ _ _ | Swim Shorts | | Obtained : Fished from the Ocean | Sale Price : 10G | Uses : None, but drains stamina when fished up |\ | \___________________________________________________________________________ |_____________________________________________________________________________| #########################################################################[FRP]# _______________________________________________________________________________ \ \ \ \__________________________________________________________/ / / / \ \ \| |/ / / \ \ | Fish Recipe Mechanics | / / \ \ | | / / \ \| "Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish: |/ / \ | too much handling will spoil it." -Lao Tzu | / \| ______________________________________________________|/ _________| | | ___________| | / |/There are 41 fish in the game, and six recipes involve one ingredient that | can be any of these fish: Herb Fish, Meuniere, Bouillabaise, Marinated Fish, | Sushi and Sashimi. If I were to include all the combinations that result in | all of these dishes, it would add a ridiculous amount of stuff to this | document. There are 1,533,937 combinations for Sashimi. There are 652,732 | combinations for Sushi. Those two alone would add almost 36,500 PAGES to this | document. | | Fortunately, the six fish recipes operate on a unified mechanic, and they can | all be profitable when done properly. | | The reason for this is because the six fish dishes each have a quality rating | to them. Higher-quality dishes sell for more. The quality of what you cook is | based on the sale value of the ingredients you use. And in every case, the | sale value is higher than the minimum total cost of the ingredients you need | to use. | | The qualities are based on three cut-off points that divide the dish into | four qualities. If the total value of your ingredients is less than the | bottom cut-off, the dish will turn out Decent. If the total value of your | ingredients is greater than the top cut-off, the dish will turn out Shining. | | For example, Herb Fish's cut-offs are at 300G, 600G and 1200G. A dish made | from ingredients summing to 150G would be Decent; 450G would be Good; 750G | would be Perfect; and 1350G would be Shining. | | In every instance, the maximum profit will be garnered by coming as close to | a cut-off as possible while still being equal or greater. For example, if you | make an Herb Fish with ingredients worth 300G, you'll get a Good Herb Fish, | which sells for 320G - a 20G profit. However, if you make an Herb Fish with | ingredients worth 590G, you'll still get a Good Herb Fish, which still sells | for 320G - a 270G loss. | | So, try to come as close to one of the cut-offs as you can while still being | equal or greater to it. That means for a cut-off of 600G, shoot for something | in the 600-620 range. If you can't do that, it might be better to make two | lower-quality dishes. | | Below are the cut-offs and sale prices for the six fish dishes. Use these | numbers to determine if it's worth it to cook your fish into the dish or | just sell them outright. Note also that for dishes involving an ingredient | other than fish, the sale value of those ingredients counts too - so pay | attention to your ingredient qualities. Sale prices are listed below the | cut-off that leads to them - so if your ingredients add up to the cut-off | or more, the below dish price will result. | | Note that to the best of my knowledge, squids, octopi and eels can NOT be | used in the following recipes. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Herb Fish | | Ingredients : 1-4 Fish, 1 Herb (any color) | Cut-Offs : 300G / 600G / 1200G | Sale Prices : 260G / 320G / 630G / 1320G | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Meuniere | | Ingredients : 1 Fish, 1 Butter, 1 Spinach, 1 Herb (any color) | Cut-Offs : 300G / 600G / 1200G | Sale Prices : 280G / 420G / 640G / 1350G | Note : These numbers have not been 100% confirmed; if you observe | : something different, please let me know. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Bouillabaise | | Ingredients : 1 Fish, 1 Herb (any color), 1 Onion, 1 Crustacean, 1 Tomato | Cut-Offs : 300G / 600G / 1200G | Sale Prices : 360G / 450G / 540G / 1320G | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Sushi | | Ingredients : 1-4 Fish, 1 Rice | Cut-Offs : 600G / 1200G / 2400G | Sale Prices : 310G / 620G / 1240G / 2480G | Note : These numbers have not been 100% confirmed; if you observe | : something different, please let me know. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Sashimi | | Ingredients : 1-5 Fish | Cut-Offs : 500G / 1000G / 2000G | Sale Prices : 270G / 530G / 1060G / 2120G | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Marinated Fish | | Ingredients : 1 Fish, 1 Herb (any color), 1 Onion | Cut-Offs : 300G / 600G / 1200G | Sale Prices : 160G / 310G / 620G / 1240G | Note : These numbers have not been 100% confirmed; if you observe | : something different, please let me know. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | Ingredient Prices | | Below are the sale prices for all ingredients used in any of the above fish | dishes.

But my old note scared people off, so | let me make it more succinct. | | I'm more than happy to answer any questions about Harvest Moon: Tree of | Tranquility, via e-mail or IM. However, please note the | following: | - I am not interested in just chatting about Harvest Moon: Tree of | Tranquility. That means, don't ask me who I married, if I've finished the | game, how much money I have, etc. And I'm not all that interested in | hearing every detail about your farm either. Sorry. | - I am not interested in chatting about any other game, nor am I qualified | to answer questions about any game except for Harvest Moon: Tree of | Tranquility. That means, don't ask me about Spore, Gears of War, | Kingodm Hearts, Animal Crossing or Age of Empires. Don't ask me what other | video game systems I have. Don't list yours for me. I'm really not | interested in hearing about it. Sorry. | - If you ask me a question that is clearly stated somewhere in this guide, | I'll tell you how to find it. I won't look up the answer for you. I didn't | write this guide just so people could scroll to the bottom and find my | e-mail address. Don't be afraid to ask, but don't be upset if I respond | with a search code. | - Please type communicably. I'm not obsessed with proper grammar/spelling, | but if I can't understand what you're saying I just won't respond. And | this one is just a pet peeve of mine: I have no idea what any of these | "smileys" mean: ^^ ^^; -_- >> << <<; >>;; <_> >_< n-n n.n - and I have no | desire to know. So don't say anything that's dependent on me understanding | what these devilspawn illegitimate children of lolspeak and anime mean. | - I am not interested in just chatting. That means, do not send me videos | of sneezing pandas. Do not ask me what I look like. Do not ask me what | "IMing" is. Do not ask me if I know a good cheat site. Do not send me the | "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" video. Do not send me a "Kiwee Emoticon." Do | not ask me if I like Naruto. And do NOT write DetroitDJ fanfiction. | Seriously, creepy. | | And yes, every single thing I've listed above has actually happened. | | Basically, if you contact me and I don't answer, ask yourself one question: | Am I asking a question about Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility? If the answer | is no, then now you know why I'm not responding.
