How to catch bugs in Persona 4 Golden and where to get the net to do it

Role lovers have a new appointment on PC and consoles. This is Persona 4 Golden, the new version of Atlus’ JRPG, Now available on PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC. It is a remastering of the Golden version that we already saw on PS Vita and Steam a few years ago.

Persona 4 Golden is one of the best in the saga, which not only has a well-cared story and a very charismatic cast of characters, but also poses different challenges and mini-games.

One of the most interesting is insect huntingwhich is done with the butterfly net. Only then will you be able to get the best Persona 4 Golden fishing lure, as well as other prizes (such as a trophy or achievement).

Don’t you know how to hunt insects in Persona 4 Golden? Don’t worry, we’ll explain how to get the butterfly net, and also how this fun minigame from Atlus’ JRPG works.

Get the butterfly net and hunt insects

To get the net, an essential item to hunt bugs in Persona 4 Golden, you must wait until it is summer. Specifically, to what the date is after June 4 (June 5 at least).

If you meet this requirement, then head to Tatsuhime Shrine (day only)and when you arrive you will see that there is a child.

Talk to him. She will tell us that she is very sad because she has lost a butterfly net (or net) in the sanctuary. From now on our mission will be to find it, but you must keep a couple of things in mind.

First thing: to find the butterfly net you must go to the Tatsuhime Shrine at night. And second: you must have the necessary courage (remember that the maximum is 80 points).

Upon returning to the sanctuary at night, a Lady in White will appear. If you don’t have enough courage, your character will get scared and you won’t be able to talk to the specter.

Talk to the Lady in White. He will ask us to give him a gold fish, to which we must answer “No”, unless you have it in your inventory. Then he will tell us that let’s catch the butterfly netwhich is at the top of the arch of the sanctuary.

When you have the butterfly net in your possession, return to the Sanctuary by day, and talk to the boy. He will tell you that he has already found another network and that you can keep his. Now you can hunt insects.

To hunt insects you must go to the trees of the sanctuary. Once there, a simple minigame will begin, through which you can catch bugs like the Tatsuhime Ladybug, the Inaba Jewel Bug or the Genji Beetle.

Each of these insects not only has great value, but also allows you to make a special bait to catch fish. There’s also two books about insects that you can consult: Catching Bugs (June 11) for 1,800 yen, and World Class Bugs (November 1, 4,800 yen).

Persona 4 Golden is available on PS4 (backwards compatible on PS5), Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows, Steam, and PS Vita. You can also play it on Xbox Game Pass.
