I cant seem to get the fishing spot southwest of Farmtown to appear. According to maps, and various faqs, it should be located on one of the small islands accessible by Jean, but battle, after battle, I see nothing. I am playing on my SNES, is it a game boy only add-on? Alternatively does the fishing spot only unlock after a certain event?
Apparently you can only trigger fishing spots if you are in the same enemy encounter section as the fishing spot. Even though the spot is connected to an island, it is technically attached to the landmass to the east.
