How To Catch Legendary Fish ‘Guardian of the Pond’

To prepare for catching the Guardian of the Pond, you have to buy the book titled ‘Essence of Fishing’ which can be bough from Shinjuku. This book makes it easier for you to see fish using your third eye and where the fishing line needs to land in order to catch them.

Once you have unlocked and improved your fishing skills, you will need to gain enough points, around 400, to purchase Top-class Boilie. You can gain these points faster by catching fishes with tags or by buying medium or large Boilie baits to catch fish that help toward reaching these points.

Once you have the required bait and the necessary skills, you will have to catch up to 6 fishes in order to get the Guardian to spawn in the river. It appears as a long gold fish if you use third eye so once you spot it, make sure to cast your fishing line so you can catch it. You will need to be careful as you have to make sure to trap it only when it closer to the surface so you can keep luring it with your bait until it gets closer and the reel it in, which will also require fewer button presses.

Persona 5 will be released on April 4th for the PS3 and PS4.
