How to Fish

① Approach the Pond

Choose the Best Spot.pngEnlarge

Once you are close to the natural fishing pond, a symbol will pop up close to your head accompanied by the word Fish. This symbol means that you can start fishing from the spot you are standing in.

Action Input

② Aim and Release

Shoot for the fish you want.png

Your HUD will change to an overview of the pond. From there, you can start choosing which fish you will be going for. You can adjust where you will cast your line as well as move the camera within a 360-degree rotation.

③ Wait Patiently

You can see when the fish is biting when the water above the fish is disturbed. That means that one of the fish is near your bobber and is taking the bait.

④ Reel Them In!

The fish will then start thrashing about in the water. This is your cue to rapidly tap the A Button as you fight for control of your rod. With enough taps, the fish will then lose this battle and eventually will end in your hands.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
