The Cowfish is an early-game orange, slow-moving, large fish, and is often a player's first large fish.
The Cowfish's description reads "This lumbering fish sits around waiting for a snack to float past his face."
- Has a value of $2,500
- Is quite common, often found in shallow depths, and can even be caught from the shore, with the Basic Rod.
- Swims slowly, and will gravitate towards and eat bait of any size.
How to Catch
- Large Bait
- Huge/Mega Hook
- Medium Fish
The Cowfish is not especially difficult to catch, and players simply need to avoid attracting other, nearby fish to the lure (and in Realism Mode ensure the line does not break when hooked).
