Fishing Gameplay Overview

  1. Make bait
  2. Select the appropriate fishing rod and bait
  3. Cast your line and keep track of your fishing progress

If you see ripples in a nearby water body, this means that it is a Fishing Point. Get close to this Fishing Point and interact with it to start fishing. Each Fishing Point will be refreshed every 3 days. During this period, the alternation between day and night will influence the appearance of the fish.

Different water bodies contain diffrent species of fish. While preparing to fish, you can view the species that can be found here and select the appropriate rod and bait.

Travelers can make bait at the Crafting Benches.

Different are attracted to different kind of bait~

  • Fruit Pase Bait, suitable for: Medakas, Dawncatchers and Crystalfish
  • Redrot Bait, suitable for: Sticklebacks, Bettas, Venomspine Fish, Akai Maou and Snowstriders
  • False Worm Bait, suitable for: Shirakodai and Angelfish
  • Fake Fly Bait, suitable for: Koi and Pufferfish

You can exchange the fish you catch for various fishing rods at the Fishing Association in each region. Using the appropriate fishing rod for the area can increase your chances of catching fish.

Hold the Cast Rod button to enter aiming mode:

Let go of said button to flick your bait and hook out.

If your hook lands too far from the fish, its ability to attract them will greatly decrease.

If it lands too close by, the fish will be startled and will flee the scene.

When the fish are on the hook, press the Raise Hook button, or the fish might finish eating the bait and flee.

Once you've successfully raised your hook, the fish will start to struggle.

When the fish enters a struggling state, you can hold and release the Fish button to adjust your fishing line tension and keep it in the yellow Ideal Tension Zone.

Fishing progress will only increase if you stay in the Ideal Tension Zone. Otherwise, progress will drop.

Once progress is full, you will have successfully caught this fish.

Fish on the hook will sometimes enter periods of intense struggle. At this time, the speed at which line tension may change will be affected, and the Ideal Tension Zone will turn orange and start to fluctuate slightly.

If your fishing progress hits 0, the fish will try to escape. The Tension Zone will then turn red and start to fluctuate.

To make it easier for Travelers to record the location of Fishing Points, a pin for indicating Fishing Points has been added to the map. Travelers can place the pins as needed.

You can exchange caught fish at Fishing Associations in various regions. You can also use them as maeat in cooking.

You can check the species of fish that you have already caught in the "Living BEings" section of the Archive.

At the Inazuma Fishing Association, Travelers can Exchange for the "The Catch" (4-Star Polearm) and its refinement materials.

There are certain lively and more valuable specimens of each fish species known as Ornamental Fish, and Fishing Areas with such fish at them will have more obvious ripple effects.

You can redee the Furnishing Blueprint "Pool of Sapphire Grace" at the Liyue Fishing Association. Ornamental Fish caught via Fishing can be raised in this sort of pond.

That's all for now, but stay tuned for more information in the future, Travelers! See you next time~
