To be able to catch an eel hook, line, and sinker, you’ll need to meet a few different requirements. Below, we have gone over everything you will need.

Where To Find Eel

Unlike some fish, Eel can be found pretty much anywhere in the ocean or at a beach farm if you have one. This means you can find it at any location along the coast. We especially recommend going to the eastern pier as this is where the most higher-level fish seem to appear.


You will also have to keep in mind that it must be either Fall or Spring to catch an eel, and it must be raining. They will only appear from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., so make sure to plan your trip to the beach wisely.

As we mentioned before, Eel can be found anywhere at the beach as long as you meet the season, time, and weather requirements. Catching them is a relatively simple task, as well.

Even though they are easy to catch, they are not an extremely common fish, so they won’t often appear on your line. However, to have a higher chance of reeling one in, we recommend using bait to attract them. You can either buy some from Willy’s Shop for 5g, or you can make your own.

We also recommend using a bobber to simplify the process even more. The best option for catching eel is the Cork Bobber, as it will extend your fishing bar size. This way, you’ll more likely catch an iridium-quality eel that will sell for a higher price.
