Fishing is a small minigame used for catching fish ingredients that can be used in cooking. Alongside farming, it is one of the primary ways of acquiring cooking ingredients.

How to fish[edit | edit source]

Ripples of water indicating a fishing spot

Fishing can only be done at designated spots, which are shown with circular ripples of water along the shore line. The player must be standing a minimum distance away from the spot before fishing, and then use the fishing rod on the spot. After about 10 seconds a fish will bite, and the player must use the interact key (default: Left, Space, or A) to begin pulling, and the again for each subsequent pull until the fish is pulled to the player.

When the fish is on the line, there will be two ripples, one static around the bobber and one repeatedly closing in. Pulling will be most effective when these two ripples overlap. Each pull costs energy, so rapid pulls that do not pay attention to these ripples will not pull the fish as far and the fish will require more total energy to catch.

Fishing spots refill when sleeping.

List of fish[edit | edit source]

The following fish can be caught:

Where to fish[edit | edit source]

There are three tiers of fish, with three fish per tier. Each fishing spot belongs to a tier (see icon color on the map) and will yield the same number of each fish of that tier if fished until empty. For example, the tier one spot right at Fritz's hut will yield each tier 1 fish once, while each of the two spots north of the wreck will yield two of each tier 1 fish. However, the order is random.

Tier 1 (blue fish on the map)

Bluefish, Clam and Mackerel can be found on the sandbank and main island.


Tier 2 (golden fish on the map)

Crab, Flounder and White Marlin are found on every of the 3 Islands to the west, southwest and south.

Upgrading your stew level to unlock Fritz's Pier will give you access to a tier 2 fishing spot at the beach. It yields 8 of each tier 2 fish (so it can be used 24 times before having to sleep).

After unlocking the Ladder, you will gain access to one tier 2 fishing spot in a cave on the northern half of the main island. You can get every tier 2 fish twice there.


Tier 3 (red fish on the map)

Lobster, Red Snapper and Seabass are found on the northeastern island.

After unlocking the climbing rope, you will gain access to one tier 3 fishing spot on the northern half of the main island. It has every tier 3 fish twice.
