How to Catch Stardew Valley Crimson Fish

  • You need to be at the far east end of the beach (past the small bridge that requires 300 wood). Any location on the eastern pier will do or any location along the shore east of the pier.
  • The bobber must be positioned in water with a Fishing Zone of at least 3, which means it must be at least four tiles away from any land (including the pier) in every direction.
