Complete Quests

There are quests that require you to fish. By fishing, you can complete these quests and recieve generous rewards.

What to do with fish

You obtain fish by fishing, and those fish can be used as ingredients when cooking. These dishes provide stat bonuses, and cooking a great way to get a little bit of edge over your opponents during battles.

How to Fish

Head to the Fishing Pond

You must first head to the lake and initiate fishing by talking to the man that manages the pond.

Prepare your Bait

You must first choose your bait before starting the mini-game. The bait you choose greatly affects the kind of fish you can get while fishing. It is greatly recommended to save high grade fishing baits for rare events.

Where to Get Bait

Time Your Hook

There will be a colored fish icon below the line when you start fishing. This indicates that a fish has bitten the hook. Tap the Confirm button to initiate the next step. Also note that the color of the fish indicates the rarity of the fish that bit, and you will have three tries to hook the fish that bites. If you fail to hook the 3rd fish, the bait is lost permanently.

Rare Fish

There are 5 types of fish, indicated by their color when fishing. These are Dark Blue, Light Blue, Red, Yellow, Violet, and Rainbow in order of rarity respectively, with Rainbow Fish being most rare.

Time Your Reels

FE3H Perfect Reels
A circle outline will appear once you finally start reeling a fish. Make sure to time your input when the circle is perfectly aligned with the circle outline on the screen. Hitting the timing perfectly will reduce the stamina of the fish, while hitting it wrongly will reduce Byleth's stamina.

Fishing Tournaments

Fish of Mystery Chance to find a rainbow rarity fish.
Fistful of Fish Catch multiple fish with one bait.
Lots of Large Fish Chances of catching larger fish increases.
