How to Catch a Squid in Stardew Valley – Guide

The Squid is one of the hardest fishes to catch in Stardew Valley and is not always easy to find either. And when you do find it, reeling it in becomes a challenge.

So to catch one, you should, first of all, get a fishing rod. This item can be gotten in the early stages of the game as early as Spring 2 once you’ve completed the “To The Beach” quest. However, we suggest using the Fiberglass or Iridium Rod with bait and tackle when attempting to catch a Squid because as aforesaid, they’re not easy to catch.


Now, after you’ve secured yourself a fishing rod a reliable bait and tackle, you’ll need to wait for the right time and weather conditions before attempting to catch a Squid. And like many other fishes in the game, the Squid also has its specific time and season of availability.

You can catch the Squid from the Beach or Beach Farm whenever it’s winter. The Squid is available from 6 PM to 2 AM and unlike most fishes that are only available to catch when it’s raining, you can attempt to catch the Squid in any weather conditions.

As a sinker-type fish, the Squid often drifts to the bottom of the water before aggressively swimming back upwards. Regardless of its behavior, you shouldn’t have much of a problem catching a Squid if you have a good fishing level and rod.
