Fishing requires that a decent amount of progress be made in the journal’s Milestones. By accomplishing these milestones in other areas, players can get a feel for their environment and its local wildlife, earning Permit Points along the way. Before they can start fishing, players must first obtain a Fishing License from Fletch at the cost of 255 Permit Points, then buy a Fishing Rod from John for 1,260 dinks.

Once they’re properly equipped for the task, the next step to catching a Marlin is locating the fishing spot in which it resides. Marlins, as difficult as they can be to track down, only appear in the Southern Oceans during the daytime before swimming deeper out to sea at night. To complicate the matter further, Marlins are a late-year catch, only available between Autumn and Winter.
