There’s a thunderstorm today – likely the last rain of the summer.
After a harvest of radishes and hot peppers (and hops), I decided to make it a fishing day.
I still don’t actually know if the rain affects fishing at all, but I had a good feeling about it and I’m determined to catch an octopus before the season ends.
I packed one of my peppers to deliver along the way, along with a leek for good measure.
After buying some wheat from Pierre (because there’s nothing else I can plant until fall), I gave them to George.
Despite his impatience, he’s at 4/10 friendship now.
At the beach, I reset my crab traps and bought some trout soup to try to maximize my chances of catching an octopus.
After a bunch of red snapper and red mullet, I had my chance.
I wrassled with this thing for almost a full minute. At one point I came this close to reeling it in, but…
It got the better of me.
Frustrated, I gave up on it for today and moved on to a new fishing spot. I divided the rest of the day between the forest river and the mountain lake.
Here’s the day’s catch:
- 5 red mullet
- 4 red snapper
- 2 tilapia
- 1 tuna
- 4 pike
- 4 chub
- 1 dorado
- 1 shad
- 5 bullhead
- 3 chub
- 3 carp
I also stopped by the community center after noticing I hadn’t turned in a red snapper yet, and it was the last thing in the Ocean Fish Bundle.
As a reward I got an item that can warp me to one of those strange statues I’ve always wondered about. Neat!
They’re one-time use though, so not nearly as good as the mine carts unless I have a way to get or make more of them.
