Twilight Princess Secrets

You can get a free bottle if you go to the fishing hole and fish to the left of the bridge where the water is darker.

You can unlock the Frog Fishing Lure by beating all 8 levels of the Roal Goal mini-game.

If you check behind the sign at the fishing hole you’ll see three mounds of dirt. Transform into the wolf and dig for earth worms that you can use as bait.

In order to find all the Heart Pieces go to Fanadi’s Palace in Hyrule Castle Town and pay her 10 Rupees to give you a Love fortune. This will reveal the location of a Heart piece.

After you visit the City of the Sky it will always be daytime when you return.

Once you progress past the third dungeon donate 1000 Rupees to the Goron in the Malo Mart in Kakariko. Talk to the Goron elder outside the shop and if you complete his quest the second donation will be reduced from 2000 to just 200 Rupees.

You can make a quick bit of cash by visiting the Kakariko Graveyard. Take your lantern and light the two unlit torches to discover a chest with 50 Rupees. You’ll find another 10 Rupees under one of the pushable gravestones.

On the path from Kakariko to Death Mountain there is a secret cave with vines hanging from it. Use your Clawshot to grab hold and climb inside, quickly kill the rare chu and you’ll get an attack and health booster.
