Where to Catch Sardine

Now, Sardines might be small, but they’re not the easiest catch if you’re specific about seasons and timings. These silvery wonders can be found at The Beach, south of Pelican Town. But here’s the catch (pun intended): you can only snag them between 6 am and 7 pm during Spring, Fall, or Winter. It’s like a fishy rendezvous schedule!

For the impatient angler, there’s a nifty trick – Magic Bait. It’s your golden ticket to catching Sardines whenever you please. And hey, if you opted for the Beach Farm layout, you’re in luck – Sardines practically throw themselves at your hook right on your farm.

Not in the mood for a fishing expedition? No worries. Swing by the Traveling Cart; it’s like the Amazon of Stardew Valley. You might spot Sardines there, waving at you from the shelves. Oh, and here’s a quirky tip – check Garbage Cans around Pelican Town during Spring, Fall, or Winter. You might just stumble upon a hidden stash of Sardines. One man’s trash is another man’s fish, right?
