One fish we know you're probably sick of hooking by now in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the sea bass.
According to a story over on Polygon, it has got to the point where a modder by the name of 'SmuggestGirl' has decided to eradicate this sea roach from the game. Their mod, simply titled 'No Sea Bass', reduces the spawn rate of this particular fish to zero percent. Here's some user feedback so far:
"Shucks, now [it's] all squids, olive flounders, and red snappers"
The same modder has also created the "complete opposite" of this - removing all other varieties of fish from the water but the sea bass. It left one commenter questioning what would happen if they ran both mods at the same time.
While the mod removing this fish from the game is definitely amusing, alternatively you could just learn to live with it occupying the surrounding waters of your tropical paradise. It still sells for 400 Bells!
Do you think the amount of sea bass swimming about in New Horizons needs to be reduced? Is there anyone out there who wants to catch more sea bass? Do you want them gone for good? Share your thoughts below.
Sea Bass... A lot here.
But i tried Fish Bait trick to trigger different fishes.
Doing God’s work.
I think mods (like these) are like piracy and cheating, and shouldn't be encouraged.
Sea bass? You mean that guy from dumb and dumber that got the salt shaker thrown at him?
What a lame mod. Why not just increase the value of sea bass to 10,000,000 bells instead?
@sanderev Bet you're fun at parties. /S
Ah yes, the mod that makes it impossible to complete your museum.
This isn't exactly a balancing issue, the point is that not all fish are valuable catches.
I'm sure they won't be missed
@Incarna *at least a C+
Horse Mackerel is another one.
Where do people play these mods?
Maybe its an ecological statement about the state of the global fish population. Atleast that how i would have sold it.
I think without the bitter, the sweet wouldn't be so sweet. I love it when I catch a Coelacanth or a Napoleonfish instead and it's so satisfying to see them instead. If it wasn't for the sea bass, they wouldn't be as beautiful to see coming out of the sea.
I thought the amount of sea bass has been lower in this game, and I've played all of the others.
My island has a decent mix of olive flounders, barred knifejaws, etc
I feel like all of these Animal Crossing "power gamers" have missed the point of the series.
@sanderev But animal crossing isnt an online, competitive game? I think that for more single player games like this, mods are fine.
@Laoak mods ain't fine for any game since the game is being broken and not play the way it was meant to be played
KILL THEM ALL
@Laoak Animal Crossing is, however, online. Or didn't you go to the dock on your Island?
we want ALL bass gone......................loach looking at me with reproach too
@Darkyoshi98 some people just use mods to mess around with and have fun! What’s wrong with that?
...What about the black bass?
@Joeynator3000 they say he's the most metal, but what can be more metal in those waters than mah boi tin can????
@sanderev What I mean by a competitive online game is that you aren't playing against nobody. Animal crossing is all about fun and playing your way. It isnt story-driven or competitive, so stop saying you must play one way or another.
@Darkyoshi98 Animal crossing is all about fun and playing your way. Don't try and say you can only play it the normal way. As long as the game is not competitive, you should be able to do whatever you want in the game.
Really never understand Nintendo life's logic at times , we have articles like this praising a mod and a few days later we have another and the pitchforks are out.
With how Nintendo are in surprised they let this stuff go on
Granted some games benefit from mods but this isn't one of them , they destroy the whole point of the game.
Wrong look at steam etc lots of games that benefit greatly from mods and improve on the base game, but as I said in my other post this really isn't one of them as most of the more just seem to be short cuts and bordering on cheats
(quote) Animal Crossing is, however, online. Or didn't you go to the dock on your Island? (end quote)
So what about those who do not have multiple system at home for local and NSO for online? You can't play the game anymore? they have to return for refund?

Says who? Source please.
there's a lot of sea bass cause it's the same as real life
@Darkyoshi98 Stardew Valley would love to have a word with you the developer supports people who use mods on it
Nintendo really need to reduce the Spawn Rate of Sea Bass, is so annoying have to catch a Sea Bass, when you want to catch rare Fish like Mahi-Mahi and Great Trevaly and the Shark when this Fishes come to my Island in decembre/january, Nintendo need urgently to raise the Spawn Rate of rare Fish and make Sea Bass extremely rare.
@Giancarlothomaz Agreed, all that really needs to happen is for Nintendo to change the spawn rates (and while they're at it, lower the rates for ANYTHING with "bass" in the name; I scarcely bother with river fishing anymore because it feels like Black Bass are what you get 95% of the time from large shadows). I wouldn't go so far as to make Sea Bass extremely rare, just get it to a sane point where players won't get fed up and go do other things.
That’s genocide! PETA will be all over this like a rash
Wow. The Mayor finally did it. He made sea bass illegal.
@Laoak @RPGamer Nintendo has already once rebalanced the amount of certain bugs appearing, also they reduced the interest you get from storing money in the ABD because of cheaters (time travelers). So yes, it does affect me.
True the game isn't competitive. But it is multiplayer and online. If you play online or not.
So long as people keep the cheating to themselves then I don't really care. But I also do not understand. This kind of thing just feels like you don't want to play the game.
Sea bass and black bass are in the game to represent losing your RNG throw. And even though you do lose - they're not utterly worthless.
Looks like now...
It's a sea minus.
@Laoak Regardless of that, the game is meant to be played a certain way. Otherwise you wouldn’t need a mod to wipe something you don’t like out of the game entirely. You would simply be able to do it.
@noswitchbutidc Yeah, the people who mod things they don’t like out of games that are meant to be fun and ARE fun despite the sea bass “problem” are fun at parties too. /s
There’s really no point of playing a game that relies on chance/luck if you just get rid of the things you don’t want so you can get better stuff easier.
Yes, they appear way to often, just like the Black Bass (300 bells), the Carps, the Squid, the Ribbon Eel, et al ... the Sea Bass is a Big Shadow, however I fish everyday for at least 4 to 5 hours and even then I start releasing the "Trash" Fish for "Money" most especially if i receive some Rain (an awesome downloadable update from the developers for ACNH would be a Weather Forecast each day and a discernable Rain and Thunderstorm Sounds/Clouds n Lightning). Having a Weather Forecast could help the Devoted Players to plan their Day either around the puddles (hah) or in the Eye of the Storm.
Cooler still is probably too much Code, but if it could match the "Weather Channels Forecast" for your Town/City of Record would have the Industry very jealous. Simpler, have Isabelle do the Weather which will make her more interesting, especially when there is nothing going on in the island that day. This will make her a Valuable Animal by forecasting the Weather with maybe a Surf and Ski forecast for the day and maybe a fishing secret. Fishing to me is a Fun, Exciting, and Frustrating way to make Lots of Bells each day.
I want my game the way the developers want it and not hijacked by a hacker. As much as I hate when the 7 deadly 'Trash' Fish hit my line and scare away those rare fish, i rather be frustrated than a hack. The player is Very Smart to get into Code and Specifically get rid of the #1 Trash Fish and for a spin have the game only spit out that nasty Sea Bass.
Thx for the Opportunity to talk about the best Game and a Wonderful get away from the actions of 2020.
@UnknownReader Not having NSO only stops you from playing online multiplayer. You still get the updates and events. Also even if you don't, these cheaters all do. Which in fact affects the in game economy.
Sounds a lot like Morrowind mods that removed cliff racers.
@Darkyoshi98 Have you ever read anything regarding Skyrim? I hope you know that the developers actually freely gave out a tool called the Construction Kit, that gives you full access to literally every aspect of the game so that modders can do their thing. They also included mod kits for Morrowind and Oblivion.
Did you know that an old mod called Brutal Doom is the inspiration behind Doom 2016/Doom Eternal?
But yeah, no mods. Mods bad. Mumble mumble.
@KarmaGoona Why? It’s a game so the only thing you get out of it is some enjoyment. At the end of the day, you end up with no return on your time investment, regardless of if you modded something or not. Same outcome at the end, what matters most is did you enjoy it?
@SmaggTheSmug To be fair, Cliff Racers were incredibly inconsistent with their behavior, and if you had no way to levitate or use ranged weapons, they would basically murder you. Oh, and they also happened to be faster than the player character, especially at low levels!
@sanderev Nobody cares about a make believe economy in a video game.
@TG16_IS_BAE Murder you? I whacked at them with a sword and they would die. And I was very bad at Morrowind (had to slowly inch the slavers' cave near the starting town or I would be murdered). I thought the main problem with them was that they were very annoying, with their screech and attacks out of nowhere.
Praise Saint Jiub for removing the Cliff Racers from Vvardenfell
"mods ain't fine for any game since the game is being broken and not play the way it was meant to be played"
100% false. I made a mod that fixed a problematic DLC for Saints Row 3 on PC. Without it people weren't able to play the game as originally intended.
@sanderev "get the updates and events" does not equal to online play and definitely not what you said before "Or didn't you go to the dock on your Island?"
All games be it mobile to PC to console all have updates and most have event. Unless the game is dead ( still able to play but dev stop updating ) (edit to say: people can still update and do event without playing online. Airplane Mode )
And after months of playing +resetting my game, I did not encounter less spawning of bugs (at least not to a point that I only see them 1 spawn in days ) I like the spawning rate now. Bank interest? do you rely on that only? I get way more bells than what the bank game me. And that too balance out nicely for me. ( I have so much bells that if I trade something now, I only ask for NMT )
I really don't get the mentality of some of you. And if you so worried about they may break your game, then hang with the people on this forum ( you know that one thread Animal crossing New horizons ) Or ask the people you going to travel to if they TT or not before going. How hard is that?
@SmaggTheSmug Yep, that’s why there was the mod to remove them entirely. Ignoring the point that their behavior is inconsistent means you probably haven’t played in a while to remember. There are situations where they can be locked into a position where they can hit you and you can’t hit them. Depending on the character you roll, they can be impossible to hit due to their high agility. If you happen to roll a low agility character, you can be in a situation where you sit there swinging and missing while they just eat you. Don’t be dumb, you should know that your experience does not negate the experience of others!
@RPGamer me too
