It offers great rewards for every fish you catch - these rewards can range from small Runes to weapon upgrading Ingots!

Fishing Guide: How to Fish?

Fishing in itself is a simple task, but to fully unlock the potential of the activity, you must first build the Fishing Hut in your settlement.

From there, you can talk to young Arth about what fish you can get and for what reward.

Find a Place

When Fishing, find a river or a larger body of water to do it from. If you so wished, you can even do it from your Longship.

When you're comfortable, hold down 'L2' and tap 'R2' to cast your Fishing Line. You generally want to cast your line to where the surface of the water is disturbed by schools of fish.

Wait for the bite

There are two ways for you to know if a fish has bit your bait: when you see a fish from the surface swim towards where your hook is, and when you hear a sloshing sound and feel a vibration from your controller.

Reeling it in

Once a Fish bit your bait, reel it in by tapping 'X'.

The fish will try to break free and swim away, so be sure to mash 'X' while controlling your line so you can get your catch. This also creates line tension, which might break your line. So catch them quick!

Fish Locations
