Hey there Underwater Sea Creatures!
Fish Heads, Fish Heads, Roly Poly Fish Heads…
Little Fish, Big Fish, Swimming in the water…
With the New Phase 2 just launching and more options of earning Materials/Currency for the Event… I wanted to go over one of the new elements added to the game, FISHING AT FISHERMAN’S COVE!
Let’s take a look at all that goes into this new option.
HOW DO I START FISHING?
In order to be able to get to the Fishing option, you will need to progress a bit in the Main Questline, Trawl of Booty Pt 5. At that point Chris will trigger the Questline that will give you access, Gone Fishing.
Gone Fishing Pt. 1
Learn About Fishing: Tap on “GO” to see the information
Have Quagmire Act Fishy: 6hrs, Earns $65 & 65xp
Completed Task Rewards: 5 Cursed Treasure
Gone Fishing Pt. 2
Earn 2 Fishbones: Fish to collect them, payouts vary
Place Skull Rock: Cost 30 Fishbones
At this point you have triggered the Fishing options, so you can go over to the Event Area to Fisherman’s Cove and start Fishing. Just tap on the area (I tap on the pillar under the Tent) and the Fishing Pop Up screen will Appear
After tapping on Fisherman’s Cove, the Fishing Screen will appear.
- You will see on the screen the Rewards you have so far as you Fish up top.
- The amount of Bait/Worms you have available in the Lower Left.
- The CAST button in the Lower Right.
- Then in the center, you will see the circle that is essentially your target that you will use to get the Fish.
WHAT DO I NEED TO FISH?
You will need the one thing that ALL Fishies just love to have, WORMS!! Lol.
Worms/Bait (Always): Quagmire Act Fishy 6hrs OR Meg Practuce Bird Calls 6hrs OR Mayor West Launching Cats 6hrs OR Clam Buy from Shopping Cart
HOW DO I FISH?
This is pretty straight forward. It is more of an “Aim n Shoot” kind of set up. You wait for a minute while the Koi swim around, the more that are close to each other the better as you want to get as many as possible with one CAST to save on your Bait and make it go as far as you can.
Put your finger on the Target in the middle of the screen and drag it around to where the group of Fish are that you want to get. You will see the circle turn from a RED/ORANGE to GREEN.
Once it is GREEN, that means you have Fish(es) in your target. Tap on CAST to try and catch them. (Better chance of capturing more if they are really close to almost on top of one another.)
Once you tap on CAST, you will see the Fishing Line and Hook tossed out at the area you targeted.
You will then be given Rewards depending on how many Fish you caught with your CAST.
WHAT REWARDS DO I GET?
It will vary on how many fish you snag at a time. Here are MY results, yours may vary.
Per Fish Caught
1 Fish Bone
1 6-Ring Plastic (Chance)
I know the Rings are an “Uncommon” but it seemed I got one every drop for quite some time in a row before skipping one. I am still playing around with it though. It really didn’t matter the color of Koi I caught either.
HOW MANY FISH CAN I GET WITH ONE CAST?
That will vary and depend on YOUR game and YOUR strategy. I do not know if there is a set number of them you can get at one time, but with patience in my game I have been able to capture up to 3 at a time.
- Get to Gone Fishing Pt. 2

There you have it, the Basics to Fishing. Another element added to the game to help you earn Materials to unlock Daggermouth and get other items in the game.
