According to the official wiki certain locations in the game provide higher quality fish than others. Specifically, tiles far from land, near/in dark water, and near logs provide better results. On the new fishing based farm layout, what are the best locations, if any?

What about fishing spots on the other new layouts that have a decent amount of water (wilderness farm and maybe forest farm)?

    There is nothing special about those locations specifically, you just want to cast as far away from land as possible. Commented Oct 3, 2016 at 12:04
  • @DanmakuGrazer So the wiki is wrong on the other aspects? Do we have any confirmation of such? (And ofc, checking the game's source is the best confirmation of all. Or word from the dev) If so, post an answer saying so, and I'll accept. It'd save folks some time running to specific tiles to fish.

    I can go look at the code if you'd like, but it might take a while. I'll let you know. Commented Oct 3, 2016 at 12:50

Okay, I just finished looking at the code and I can confirm what I noticed while playing: the only factor that changes a fish's quality is how far from land you can get the bobber, in all directions.

From where the bobber (B) lands, imagine many squares centered on that tile. Any square that's completely free of land, or any kind of tile that the player can stand on, will change the odds to favour higher quality fish, with the max at 6 tiles in all directions.

3222223

321B123
3211123
3222223
3333333

Something like that.

    In the entire map? I'll let someone else do that. Commented Oct 3, 2016 at 18:08
  • Does the pier on the beach count as "land" for the purposes of fish quality?
