How To Catch An Oarfish

Can Be Caught Anywhere On The Beach

The Oarfish can be caught anywhere on your island's beaches! Its shadow size is Huge, so you'll want to keep an eye out for fish of that size!

Use Bait


If you want to catch an Oarfish quickly, bait is always an option. Go fishing after you've made enough bait - the manila clams needed to make the bait can be obtained easier on rainy days, so concentrate your farming on those days.

Catch On Mystery Islands

Huge Fish Island

By using Nook Miles to go on a Mystery Island Tour, you have the chance of ending up on an island with large fish! This is an ideal spot to catch large fish. If you've got miles to spare, try this method out.

To anyone discouraged about getting this fish, they’re actually really easy to catch if you have a few dedicated fishing sessions! Tonight I managed to get five over the span of around a two hour on-and-off stretch :)

While I was looking for an oarfish I got a blue marlin

Southern Hemisphere does not spawn?, but the time is given?
