    Saltwater night fishing

    If you prefer the coast, you can catch some of the most expensive fish in the game during night fishing. Even better, two are available all year round. Here's what you can hope to catch when fishing after 16pm:

    • Barreleye: available all year between 21pm and 00am. It sells for 4 bells.
    • Coelacanth: available all year round and all day, however it prefers rainy weather. It sells for 15.000 bells.
    • Great White Shark: available from June to September between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Saw Shark: available from June to September between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Hammerhead Shark: available from June to September between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.

    Night fishing in fresh water

    Things are a little more seasonal for freshwater fishermen. The best year round fish you can hope to catch is a Ranchu goldfish, but they are only available during the day. Night fishermen can expect to see Koi all year round or try fishing one of the many seasonal species.



    • Koi: available all year round in ponds between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Golden Trout: available March to May and September to November in Clifftop Rivers between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Stringfish: available December to March in Clifftop Rivers between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Arowana: available from June to September in rivers between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.
    • Arapaima: available from June to September in rivers between 16pm and 00am. It sells for 09 bells.

    There are dozens of seasonal fish for night fishermen to snag. Keep your eyes peeled for those shadows in the water and bring lots of bait with you - you never know what awaits you out there in the dark.
