It's no surprise that the writers here at Picostyle love virtual fishing. You've read all about Cat and Peggy's adulterous relationship with Pigg, and even Ayu has been getting a little somethin'-somethin' on the side. A few weeks ago, I decided to finally try it out for myself. Once I got the hang of things, I was hooked! And yes, that pun was completely intentional.
Along the way, I've come across some strange glitches...
... I've won some amazing hats...
... I've lusted for the items in the fishing shops...
... but, more importantly, I've fished. As my friends have described it once before on the blog, it is such a serene and fun experience. There's nothing like relaxing to the sound of waves or the thrill of reeling in a brand new fish. My main goal, though, was to slowly work through each area by completing the cards for each skill level (beginner, intermediate, etc.) in that specific location before moving on. For a while, I had all but one rare fish caught in the "Sea of Japan" boat area. Today, though, all of that changed.
I was ecstatic after catching it. Not only because of the generous amount of fish points it gave me, but also because it meant that I had finally completed my card for the first skill level!
I've since moved on from the days of green buckets to the new era of yellow buckets.
All this time, I expected it to have the same fish from the previous skill class but with a raised difficulty level. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out there were entirely new fish to catch.
If you don't see me on Pico for a while, you now have a good idea of where I might be. I've gone fishing.
