Read the Wiki

  • Over 25 different fish to catch. Different fish can be found in different regions, time of day, and water depth.
  • Defeat each fish in a battle of wits and stamina - ensure the tension doesn't get too low or too high, and tire the fish out before you run out of fatigue yourself.
  • Fully animated fishing mechanics, including simulated line tension, player animations, and fish AI. 
  • Five legendary fish to catch. When harvesting a legendary fish, you will receive a trophy head that you can place on your wall.
  • Ashfall integration: bushcraft fishing poles, cook and eat the fish you catch.

Recommended Mods

How to play
  • Find a fishing pole and equip it.
  • Find some bait or a lure and equip it while the fishing rod is equipped to attach it to the rod.
  • Valid bait: crab meat, fish meat, or lures purchased from various merchants.
  • Spinner lures are best at catching small fish, bait at catching medium sizes fish, and baitfish for catching large fish
  • Shiny lures perform better during the day, glowing lures do better at night
  • Go up to a body of water and swing the fishing pole.
  • When you see ripples move towards the lure, attack with the rod the moment it strikes.
  • If successful, you'll enter the fishing minigame. The goal is to reduce the fish's fatigue to 0 before your fatigue runs out.
  • Increase tension by holding the attack button, reduce tension by releasing the attack button.
  • Tension will increase as the fish swims away, and visa versa.
  • If the tension enters the red zones, the fish will escape.
  • If the fish's fatigue reaches 0, you'll catch the fish.
  • Medium and large sized fish can be "equipped" to enter the fileting menu, where you can use a knife to carve it into fish meat.
  • Small fish can be equipped as live bait to catch larger fish.
