They are unlocked at experience level 27 when players can repair the fishing boat and go to the lake.


Catching fish

Catching fish with lures
Catching fish with nets

Fish can be caught using lures crafted on the Lure Workbench and fishing nets and mystery nets made in the Net Maker.

Players can catch all different species of fish when fishing with lures but only three when fishing with nets (i.e. species which can otherwise be caught with red lures).

Catching a fish with a lure is instantaneous. Catching a fish with a net takes 20 or 21 hours.

Six very unique fish can only be caught during special fishing events: Carps, Giant Barbs, Lake Sturgeons, Nile Perches, Red-Tailed Catfish, and Zanders

Fish players have already caught can be found in the fishing book, which opens by tapping on the fishing hut.


Fish species

There are dozens of different fish species in the game. Each can be caught with one or two kinds of lures. While most fish can be caught in any spot, some do not and all fish have a favorite spot.

Here is a map of all the spots:
