Stardew Valley Albacore: How to Find It?

Before the end of your first year, Gus – the Saloon owner – will ask for help as he wants Albacore to be featured in his menu.

For that, you’ll need to find and fish one, but it can be tricky as the Albacore needs to be obtained before the Winter is over or it will only be available in two months – since it is a fish that only spawns during Fall and Winter.

The Albacore is an ocean fish, so you need to head down to the beach. Ideally, you should have a Fiberglass rod at this point – or an even better one.

Bait makes your job easier, but the fish can be hard to reel in, so you’ll do better having 2 or 3 levels on your fishing proficiency already.


Once you obtained the fish, you just need to head on over to the Saloon or wherever Gus is at that time to complete the quest.

Open your journal and you’ll have 400g waiting for you as a reward.
