You can fish with Big the Cat to obtain exciting rewards in exchange for Gold Cards and Treasure Tokens!
Sonic Frontiers Fishing is a minigame that players can indulge themselves with, and Sonic has also quoted fishing as a method to “de-tense.” Similar to other games, such as Disney Dreamlight Valley, Sonic Frontiers also embraced the idea of implementing minigames inside a game.

Players will learn about fishing once they come across Big the Cat; a famous character in the Sonic franchise for its humorous memes. Despite being a hated character in the previous Sonic games, he has made his way into Sonic Frontiers, trapped in a cyber dimension.
You will need to find Big the Cat if you want to fish for some treasures and to get to one of the fishing spots, you’ll need to come across one of the portals that take you to the fishing point. Big will also be available at the fishing spot. But in order to fish, you will need purple coins that you’ll need to trade with Big for him to lend you his extra fishing rod.
You can borrow a fishing rod from Big the Cat for one Purple Coin.
To fish, simply swing your rod toward the pond and wait for a fish to grab onto the hook.
Once baited, a red circle will appear on the pond where the fish is, and you’ll need to wait for the white circle to overlap with the red one and immediately press the “Action Button.”
You will find, not only fish, but other scrap materials, treasures, and Gold Tokens.
Trading these Gold Tokens with Big the Cat will get you numerous rewards.
To trade tokens for items listed under Big’s collection of items, talk to Big and select “Trade Tokens.”
Sonic Frontiers Fishing Method
You won’t find any luck finding the fishing spots through the map, which is provided to you at the start of the game. Because the fog covers half of the map, you’ll need to engage in minigame activities to clear it up from blocking some of the points in the map.
On another note, the map will showcase a variety of collectibles and their locations. You will have to find and collect them either way. As for the fishing spot, you’ll find it somewhere in the Kronos Region, and by collecting some of the Chaos Emeralds, you’ll find your way entangled with Big the Cat as well!
If you’ve played Disney Dreamlight Valley before, you’ll find fishing to be an easier task. It only requires that you cast your rod out into the water and wait for the fish to bite the bait. A red circle or ripple as described by Big will pop up after you press the A button.
Another white ripple will appear and it will start to get bigger. You’ll have to wait for it to encircle the Red Circle to press the A button again. This will lift your rod up quickly and fling the fish or whatever you have caught from the pond, into the air, followed by the content revealed. Which in this case, will be a fish, treasure chest, scrap material, and many more!

Fishing Spot In Kronos Island
Earlier we discussed the Western Fishing Spot on Kronos Island. That’s where you’ll find Big The Cat. To reach the location, you’ll need to acquire the first Elder Koco, it will be signified with a big mouth on the map so you’ll identify it quickly. After collecting the Elder Koco, head West and search for the Portal. It will be blueish in color!
The Fishing Portal on Ares Island will be a bit dull, however, you’ll notice purple lines on its walls. It’ll be hard to get to this point on the map because of how isolated and separate it is from the rest of the land. There are two challenges you can complete in order to access the Northern Fishing Spot.
The third Fishing Point is on the Southeast side of the Island, again separated from the rest of the land, you’ll need to complete the M-068 puzzle which will also help you clear out the foggy bits of the Island!
To clear out most of the map in Ouranos Island, you’ll need to complete the M-082 Challenge which you’ll find near the south side of the island. As there are two fishing spots here, and your map will be unclear, you will have a hard time locating the points.
However, with each Island, I have added images of the locations to help you guys in pinpointing all of the fishing spots! On another note, you will not find any fishing spots on Rhea Island along with any challenges.
Rewards To Get For Trading Fish
Fishing in Sonic Frontiers is fun and quite frankly, addictive as well. You may find yourself indulging in the same activity for more than twenty minutes! While fishing, you will be able to catch scrolls such as the Elder Koco’s Scroll and Hermit Koko’s Scroll.
What are these scrolls for? If you happen to catch these scrolls, you’ll be able to unlock fast travel. It is a method to travel by using a Zip instead of running to a location.
Apart from that, Big will give you Treasure Tokens in exchange for fish. The Gold cards or Gold Tokens you have collected will be traded for some useful items such as Blue Seed of Defense, +20 Lost Koco, and Red Seed of Power.
Each of the mentioned items will cost one Gold Card and if you don’t have any Gold Card, you will still be able to buy them with Treasure Tokens.
Here are some of the following items you can fish;
A Wooden Treasure Chest will give you one Gold Card.
A Golden Treasure Chest will give you three Gold Cards.
You can fish all you want in exchange for one purple coin. However, as soon as you stop, you won’t be able to continue without having to give another Purple Coin to Big. Only then will he lend you his fishing rod! You can find the Purple Coins in your adventures across the world through basic exploration.
