Usage[edit | edit source]
Fishing is one of the main activities of the Hunter's Call. The reputation tab lists the types of Fish and conditions for catching them. Once the Fishing Rod is prepared, the line can be cast out to start fishing, even aboard a moving ship.
When a fish appears, the camera will lock and control will be shifted to the rod. The fish will grab the hook and attempt to flee, the rod must be aimed opposite of the direction of the fish or else the camera will shake and the line snaps. The line can be pulled in by a quarter turn after every time the fish switches direction. Once the fish stops struggling, it can be reeled in without risk of the line snapping as well.
If the line is not cast at maximum distance, a caught fish will always pull the line to maximum distance.
Functions[edit | edit source]
To fish, the player needs to equip the Fishing Rod and cast it into a water source. If the float collides with terrain, the line retracts automatically, ending the attempt.

Fish[edit | edit source]
Main article: Fish
There are 10 different types of fish in the game, dependent on location. The caught Fish can be sold to The Hunter's Call in trade for gold. The value of the fish depends on its size (Regular or Trophy) and cookedness. Fish can be cooked on a Stove and sold Raw, Under-cooked, Cooked or Burnt.
Treacherous plunder[edit | edit source]
In addition to fish, the player also has a low chance to catch different junk items. Despite its name, this plunder is far from treacherous. Treacherous plunder can only be caught without bait, making Pondie fishing spots ideal for finding these items. With the exception of Wooden Planks, which can be picked up into the player's inventory, all of the caught junk items are physical objects that can be picked up and sold to The Hunter's Call Representatives for a measly 10 Gold. The current known Treacherous Plunder are Wooden Planks, Old Hats, Old Boots, Old Skulls and Fish Bones. The only current purpose of fishing the junk items is to count towards the Hunter of Treacherous Plunder and thus the Legendary Hunter of the Sea of Thieves commendation and title.
Bait[edit | edit source]
Main Article: Bait
Some types of fish can only be caught with specific Bait, which are described under the Reputation page for The Hunter's Call. Using bait does not restrict the chance to catch other fish that are able to be caught.
There are currently three types of bait in-game:
- Earthworms - Can be dug from grass
- Grubs - Can be dug from sand
- Leeches - Can be dug from shorelines
