Usage[edit | edit source]
A Fishing Rod can be used to catch fish. Fish can be caught in most waters in game, with the exception of a few man-made springs on islands. In order to catch fish, the player needs to throw the fishing line in water and wait till a fish appears in the water. The camera will pan towards the line and fish to notify the player of an approaching fish if the camera is pointed elsewhere. When a fish bites, the player will need to fight the fish by tiring it out. In order to tire out a fish the line needs to be pulled to the opposite side of the pulling fish. At the fighting stage, the player can still reel the fish in little by little, but needs to listen to the feedback or rumble to know when the line is close to breaking. When the fish tires out, the player can safely reel in the fish until it starts fighting again. When the fish is caught the rod will be raised and the fish will be available to be picked up by either the player or someone else. The player can also put different types of Bait on their fishing hook by using the equipment radial menu with the rod in hand and pressing the respective button to see the gathered Bait. Not all fish require bait to be caught, however if the location requirements are met, these fish will also appear with bait on hook. In order to see which conditions need to be met to catch specific types of fish, including their location and the type of bait they prefer, refer to the Hunter's Call Reputation menu.
