As you progress in the fishing skill you will have the ability to successfully fish in more difficult fishing spots. In the beginning of learning the fishing skill you will notice that sometimes your sim will get a message saying that the fishing that area are too crafty for your sim will stop fishing in that spot.

You also gain a few more abilities as you go through skill levels. Below is a table that lays out what you can expect at each level of the fishing skill.

What do you use angelfish for?

Angelfish can be used in any normal recipe that requires a fish to make, but Ambrosia requires you to have an angelfish whether or not you have the simple living lot challenge on. Ambrosia is the most expensive meal you can make in the game, you can sell it for up to $15,000 Simoleons.

If you want to do a rags to riches or become wealthy selling Ambrosia is a great way to earn a lot of money, you can learn how to run a successful bakery and sell ambrosia in this article.

To make Ambrosia you need to reach level 10 both Cooking and Gourmet Cooking, an angelfish, a death flower, and a potion of youth. You have to achieve level 10 in both Cooking and Gourmet Cooking otherwise the recipe for Ambrosia will not appear in the cooking menu.

You can get a death flower in a number of ways, you can use your gardening skills to graft a pomegranate and an orchid together. You can get a pomegranate by grafting a cherry and an apple; however, you can also fish for a pomegranate. If you have Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle, you may also find some success dumpster diving.

Angelfish are a great fertilizer for your garden, I create a guide for gardening that goes over how to best fertilize and graft plants plus other useful tips for your sim to have the garden of their dreams.

I usually choose to fish for pomegranates, especially if I am already trying to fish for an angelfish. It is likely you will catch a pomegranate before you catch your angelfish.

You can also use the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat and then search for a death flower in the buy menu's search bar. It cost $1,200 simoleons to buy, but can save valuable time. You can learn more about objects and all the objects cheats in my complete guide to objects.

You can get a potion of youth for 1,500 satisfaction points in the reward store. You can earn satisfaction points by satisfying Aspirations and whims. The potion of youth can be used to age down sims the potion of youth and aging down sims is covered more in depth in this article.

Where are the best places to find angelfish?

Simmers have had the most luck finding angelfish in is Willow Creek. You can find them in the rivers around any of the neighborhoods there, and you can also head over to Sylvan Glades to fish in the secret lot that tends to have a lot of uncommon fish. Players have also reported having success in Oasis Spring, Newcrest, San Myshuno, Forgotten Hollow, Brindelton Bay, and Sulani.

In my experience there has never been one go to fishing spot that always have angelfish. It's always best to examine the fishing spots and try and do your best to assess that particular spot using the methods I discussed in the next section of this article.

What is the best bait for angelfish?

You have the option to fish with or without bait. If you choose to use bait your chances of catching a particular fish go up. If you are looking for an angelfish it is best to use either a bass or frogs.

Bass are a common fish that requires a low fishing skill level to catch. You can find them in almost all fishing locations so they are not hard to come by. You can equip your fishing rod with bass by choose fish with bait and then selecting bass from the pop up menu.

Frogs are also quite a common occurrence, for angelfish the type of frog used does not matter. You can find frogs in the ponds located in Willow Creek at the Magnolia Blossom Park, in Oasis Springs, and Sylvan Glades. You can also find frogs by searching in logs that spawn across the worlds and at the water pump in Forgotten Grotto.

How to tell if a fishing spot has an angelfish

There are a few signs you can look out for to help you decide if an angelfish is likely to be at a certain fishing spot.

If you have not caught an angelfish before then you can go around and examine the water to help you determine the best spot to fish at. When you go to examine the water you will see one of two notifications pop up.

  1. Your sim examined the water and recognized a fish they have caught before, but didn't notice any new varieties of fish.
  2. Your sim sees unrecognizable shapes moving beneath the surface of the water. This looks like an excellent spot for a fisherman of your sim's caliber to try their luck with some different catches.

If you see the second notification appear you are more likely to catch an angelfish in that spot if you have yet to catch one.

Another sign appears once you reach level 8 of the fishing skill you will also notice that some of the fishing spot signs start to sparkle. This indicates that there are rare fish at that particular location. This comes in handy when deciding which fishing spot to use when looking for angelfish.

Lastly, you can also zoom in on the fish you see out in front of the fishing spot sign you can look for an angelfish spawning. This is not a guarantee that you will catch an angelfish but it is a good indicator that an angelfish is likely to be caught.

How to get an angelfish with cheats

If you don't want to take the time to fish for an angelfish there are some cheats you can use to get an angelfish. The old cheat that used to summon objects and collectables was removed from the game in 2018. You can no longer use the objects.gsi_create_obj cheat to summon any collectables.

If you use the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat you will notice an angelfish that comes up as a debug item. Unfortunately that angelfish does not allow you to interact with it. It is the fish that the developers use in the pond itself for the animation of all the fish swimming around in front of the fishing spot rather than the fish your sim will actually catch.

sims 4 angel fish cheats

While you there are no cheats you can type into the cheat bar, you can use the gallery to get an angelfish. Many simmers have uploaded a room that contains a single angelfish that you can take and place on your current lot. To get this room, open the gallery and do a search for angelfish, you will have multiple options some contain only an angelfish while others contain a room full of a variety of fish. Choose whichever room works best for your current lot, and you can easily get an angelfish without waiting around for your sim to fish.
