How to Unlock Fishing?

While on your initial crusades in the Darkwood region, you’ll come across a character called the Fisherman. He will show you the location of Pillgrim’s Passage on the map. You’ll be able to access this area as soon as you complete the expedition where you met the Fisherman.

The Rules of Fishing

Once you’re at Pillgrim’s Passage, head to the lake where the Fisherman is located. Approach the hunting point to the left of the Fisherman.

To catch a fish, you need to:

  1. Cast your rod – When you activate the fishery, a bar will appear on the screen showing the distance you can cast. Place the pointer where you want to cast (lower placement means farther distance).
  2. Wait – Nearby fish will see the bait and eventually one will take the bait.
  3. Pull out the fish – Your task now is to keep the hook icon within the green box on the bar using the appropriate button (left mouse button on PC, A on Xbox, cross on PS). It usually takes only a few seconds to successfully catch a fish.

List of All Fish

There are three groups of catchable creatures, represented by shadows visible on the water. Keep in mind that different fish have different chances of appearing.

  1. Small – Minnows
  2. Medium – Blowfish, Salmon
  3. Large – Squid, Crab, Tuna, Octopus, Swordfish, Lobster

To increase your chances of catching rare species, perform the Ritual of the Ocean’s Bounty. You can unlock the rite with a doctrine in the Sustenance section of the third level. The ritual also doubles the number of creatures caught.
