    Your progress for this can be checked in the dreamlight tracker, in order to count towards the achievement it must be fish that are caught and not seaweed or seafood (crabs/lobsters etc).

    The top left pond in the forgotten lands nearest the fast travel well appears to be the best place to do this as it has a single fishing node point that re-appears pretty much as soon as the previous one is used and being such a small body of water, has no travel time to get to the next node as you would have to in the other zones. It only saves a few seconds each time but that's a few seconds multiplied 1800 times.

    I'd personally avoid just fishing in open water as although the fishing QTE is quicker (needing only 1 tap instead of 3-5) this will frequently result in catching seaweed, clogging up your inventory and not helping with the achievement.

    Sepitax@ E vee dub :The Sunlit Valley was 'Dead' until the Scar update, when you do his quest you bring the life back to that biome.

    IndigroupieFugu can be fished at the beach, but it has to be orange bubbles when it is raining.

    Thanks for the responses, even though I answered them on my own.

    I caught my first FUGU fish today actually. It was orange ripples on the beach.

    George's guide is decent for finding the fishing pole, but doesn't really explain how to fish. I put together this alternate video that also tries to capture HOW to catch a fish in Dreamlight Valley.

    To catch a fish, approach a pond and press cn_X to cast your line, preferably towards a bubbling circle in a pond to guarantee you hit a fish. This will start a small circle moving away from you indicating where your lure will land. Once that small circle hits the larger circle in the pond, release cn_X to cast your line. There is a small period of waiting until a fish bites. When it does, press cn_A to start the actual mini-game. A large thin circle will appear and start shrinking towards a smaller, thicker circle. When the two overlap, the thicker circle will turn green. When it turns green, press cn_A again. This may repeat several times. If you keep timing it right, you will be rewarded with a caught fish.

    Simply repeat this 1800 times (or more if you catch seaweed or other items occasionally) and you should snag this very grindy achievement.

    I plan to make Goofy my fishing mate with him specializing in fishing. So maybe he'll give me extra fish more regularly and that will count toward the 1800, unless someone can confirm that we must be the person to catch all 1800 and the extra fish from Goofy don't count.

    UPDATE: 10 Sep 2022
    The fish count in the Dreamlight tab doesn't increase with the extra fish thrown out by the fishing partner. So maybe those don't count for this achievement and we'll have to fish for every one.

    If you think this fishing achievement is a grind, don't try becoming a master fisherman in Elder Scrolls Online (which I did, *pat on back*).

    Thumbs up #2 from me.

    When does the achievement unlock?
    Upon catching fish #1800? Or
    Is there a Dreamlight quest we must claim, and then it unlocks?

    HUN playmoreI tried to catch seaweed on the beach for several quests. I noticed I'll get fish most of the time despite I just threw the lure out randomly into the water. This probably needs testing but on average I got ~10 fish for every 4-5 seaweed. This seems much faster than finding ripples of guaranteed fishing spots. Also these fishes will be lowest quality and you don't need to waste time with the long sequence.

    ScuzzyBunnyMoana's boat doesn't seem to move the quest total either. That 20 at a time would have helped the grind.
