To catch a Kingfish in Dreamlight Valley, you’ll first need to unlock the Dazzle Beach biome for 1,000 Dreamlight. Once you have access to the biome, you can catch it by fishing Blue ripples on the Dazzle Beach shoreline at night.

The in-game time for Disney Dreamlight Valley syncs with your local real-time or the timezone you selected on your platform, so you’ll have to play in the evening and at night to increase your odds of catching what you’re after.

It’s good to consider bringing along a fishing companion to maximize your efforts, as well, because they’ll drop extra fish as you catch them. Why catch one at a time when you can catch two or three? To increase a companion’s fishing level, you can craft Fishing Training Manuals by following these steps:

  • 5,000 Dreamlight
    • Find ways to collect Dreamlight in your menu.
  • 2 Swordfish
    • Fishing in Dazzle Beach or Moana’s boat.
  • 5 Bream
    • Fishing ponds in Peaceful Meadow or Moana’s boat.
  • 10 Herring
    • Fishing in Dazzle Beach or the Glade of Trust.
