I'm usually spending half of my days fishing to get a little income every day while my crops are growing. I just realized that, as I'm fishing, I'm catching bigger and bigger fish and that I'm most of the time getting at least a silver star on each fish.

So, is there any difference between little fish and big fish? Are big fish more likely to be high quality?

  • I'm not sure enough of this to post an answer, but I believe fish size is loosely correlated to quality, but irrelevant to anything else.

Quality is determined by your Fishing Level and how far away from land you cast your rod, up to 6 tiles at 'MAX' throw.

At level 10 Fishing, if you cast into the Ocean with a MAX throw, you are guaranteed to get a Gold quality fish if don't get trash.

Size has no influence on the quality of the fish.

    In all my time playing, the size of a fish doesn't seem to influence anything, though this answer says otherwise.

    Yeah, the quality of the fish affects the size, not the other way around.
