I've added the weights and base prices for the various fish, as per the Fishing XML data in the GameplayData.package (at Instance 0x90142107481DE889 for those interested). However, I haven't located the modifiers based on the -Quality- of the fish caught, so if anyone is able to find this out... as it is, the upper and lower prices may be off based on the quality level of the fish caught. 188.8.131.52 08:18, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Omni plant seed impossible while fishing[edit source]
The XML shows <BoxItems>
<ItemDbName>OmniPlantSeed</ItemDbName> <Happy>True</Happy> <RelativeProbability>0</RelativeProbability> </BoxItems>
Hence, in an unmodded game it will be impossible to fish out the seed.
Ponds I stock on my lot never become active fishing spots. Anyone else?

I am SAD[edit source]
Hello folks... I totally disagree with the modification you made! I made the article "frog" and I was and am against "merge"... Why?! Why it merged? And the photographs, the factsheet? ChOm1 12:01, January 6, 2010 (UTC)
- Some of the information about frogs as been added to small pets. --a_morris (talk) 14:00, January 6, 2010 (UTC)
Vampire Fish[edit source]
It is so weird, the bait for vampire fish is garlic, but garlic should make them try to get away from the hook. I mean, I guess while trying to choose what a vampire fish's bait would be, they chose garlic because they thought it was the closest thing that has anything to do with vampires. They should make a patch that changes the bait to Plasma Fruit (adding the fruit, but not vampires to base game).--Eduardog3000 01:31, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
Are these weights accurate? The death fish is listed as having a max weight of 80, but my sim (angler, master fisherman, both challenges completed) has caught over 100 death fish, the heaviest of which is 109.93 kg.
Robot Fish[edit source]
How can a sim hold a Robot Fish if it weighs more than him or do Sims weigh 1250+ :D Contractas1 15:28, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
Fish table[edit source]
The table gets messier and messier... Should we divide it into 2 separate tables? Nikel Talk 12:17, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
IP Fish[edit source]
I don't know why fish from Island Paradise keep getting added over and over... We haven't had the exact information about the new fish in IP (the previews from various sites never bothered to find this out). We're not sure either if these fish are actually collectable or just plain accessories in the ocean (we know catchable fish like Tragic Clownfish appear in the ocean, but not the other way around). All the details are also conjectural. Nikel Talk – Vote! 13:01, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
Death fish level requirement[edit source]
When I edited the skill requirements for cooking an ambrosia, I forgot to reference the skill requirement for catching a death fish in this page; I used the information in ambrosia page instead. It turns out there was a little mistake on my statement. Cooking an ambrosia does require level 10 of Cooking, Fishing, and Gardening skills. I added that death fish can be caught with level 7 of Fishing skill, but as I checked the game files, it was actually 10. I think some information in ambrosia has been incorrect and misleading all this time. Nikel Talk – Vote! 14:45, April 25, 2014 (UTC)
Level to use bait[edit source]
I was able to use regular (not live) bait at only level 2 fishing. Either there's an error on the chart or my game is bugging somewhat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 17:06, September 30, 2018 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~
