[Top 7] My Time at Portia Best Fishing Spots

My Time at Portia Best Fishing Spots
Something feels fishy...

Want to get rich in Portia? Go fish!

Fishing has been gaining popularity in the world of Portia. When I first started the game, I wasn’t much inclined to fish though I would check out the fishing spots occasionally. The revelation came when I was short on Gols. It’s such a pain when you have got all the materials for an upgrade and you realize there just isn’t enough Gols to pay for it.

Your answer to the financial conundrum, lovely people, is fishing! In My Time at Portia, the bigger and rarer your catch, the more money you can sell them for. Or even better, you can build some fish tanks and breed these fishes, so you don’t need to keep fishing. Although this method might take a bit more time investment to fish and put them in the tank, it is the most effective and lucrative business one can indulge in as a Portian. 

Each fishing spot will have 2-3 species of fishes to offer which will vary between normal, emperor, and king fishes. King fishes are super hard to catch but worth more than the others to breed and sell.

Pro Tip: Going fishing on ‘Fishing Day’ is recommended. The player can find rare catches on this day and earn relationship points with other residents of Portia who participate in the event!

If you want to be rich in Portia, I am here to help with this glorious list of the seven best fishing spots out of a total of ten:
