It’s easier to miss common items in the process of hunting for rare ones in the overworld of Palia. The game has tons of resources and items to acquire, and there are quite a few valuable items that can be sold for a bunch. Gifting special dishes is also a very useful way to turn your romantic experience in Palia up a notch. While rare fish can make your wallet happy, there may be some common fish that are still unknown to your collection. That said, in this guide, we have shared details on how to get, find, and catch a common fish called the Fathead Minnow in Palia. So, if you are looking for this fish, consider reading until the end.
The Fathead Minnow is known for its big and fatty head. It’s small but can still fetch you up to 80 gold for its base version and 120 gold for its quality one. This yellow-looking fish can be hard to find, though. While other common fish can be captured by normal bait, such as worms or even no bait, this fish is quite picky.
Palia Fathead Minnow: How to get, find, & catch
Common or uncommon fish both have their own rankings. Some common fish can be sold for more than uncommon ones. This Fathead Minnow can be considered one of the top-ranking fish in the common category. Now let’s see where this fish can be located:
The location of Fathead Minnow
The Fathead Minnow can be found in multiple areas of the Bahari Bay region. Here are all the locations where this fish usually spawns:
- The small pond south of Central Stables.
- A small pond between The Outskirts and Thorny Thicket. To pinpoint the location, look for a water source that is right under a bridge, south of Tamala’s house.
- The river that is flowing between the Thorny Thicket and the Statue Garden.
That was a lot of territory to cover. Fortunately, you can head over to any of them and still be able to catch the Fathead Minnow at any time of the day. Yes, this fish is not time-sensitive. But as always, there are some requisitions to cover. First of all, this fish likes glow worms as bait. We know glow worms are mostly used for rare or epic fish. How can a common fish digest that? Well, we aren’t quite sure, but due to this, its value is also quite high compared to other common fish in the game. So, get some glow worms either from your glow worm farm or purchase them directly from Einar’s fishing guild store.
How do you catch a fathead minnow?
After you have the required bait, head to the locations mentioned above, and cast your line. Remember that it may take a while before the Fathead Minnow gets caught. There will be other fish that will be attracted to the glow worm bait. If a rare or epic one appears, then it is your choice to catch it or leave it. If Fathead Minnow is the only target, then it’s better to leave them and focus solely on this one.
So, this was our complete guide on where the fathead minnow resides and how to catch it. This is a common fish, so we expect that you can capture more than five in one run. So be sure to stock up on those juicy glow worms, and if you are lucky, some epic fish may also pop up. We hope that you find this guide informative.
