I've noticed that there are Miscelleneous items in the store in Ridiculous Fishing, but they don't really make it obvious what they do.

A screenshot of the Shoppe Ship, with the Fishopedia selected. The description reads, "#2 Best fishing guide of 1996."

So far I've seen a hat and a fish encyclopedia, but I assume that there are more. What do all these do?

The "Misc." category contains items that simply did not fit in any other categories. Most of these are equippable, and some have effects. Most of the items in the category do have descriptive enough flavor text, but as you have noticed, not all do.

Following is a complete list of miscellaneous items in Ridiculous Fishing and their effects, in order of appearance in the shop - spoilers included, of course.

  • Cap - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat. No effect.
  • Gnarkepi - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Jellmet - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Fishopedia - Catalogues which fish you have caught so far, and how many of them.
  • Suit - You earn 10% more for selling fish. Equippable as an outfit.
  • Wizard robe - You earn 20% more for selling fish. Equippable as an outfit.
  • Emperor's Suit - You earn 50% more for selling fish. Equippable as an outfit.
  • Paper Hat - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Pirate Hat - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Hunting Hat - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Frozen hat - Possibly used to get certain fish - there is no record, it seems, of anyone getting one or two fish without the hat on, but nothing has been confirmed. Equippable as a hat.
  • Hedjet - Used in the Home Waters in order to encounter five very rare fish. Without it, they don't appear. Equippable as a hat.
  • Cowboy Hat - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat.
  • Top Hat - Aesthetic, equippable as a hat. Adds a button to the fishing screen to pour money into it to make it grow taller.

Only one hat and one outfit can be worn at a time. If you try to equip a new one of either, the other of the same type will be automatically unequipped.
