How To Get A Fishing Rod

The good news about getting a fishing rod is that you can’t miss it! Sometime in your first week on Coral Island, you will receive a letter from Sunny and Eleanor inviting you to come by their shack.

Head over to Sunny’s Beach Shack by the Beach and a cutscene will play showing the couple arguing about what to give you. You will then be asked to pick between the fishing pole and the bug net. You can pick either of the two as they will still give you both.

 

HOW TO FISH

Fishing in Coral Island is as easy as 1, 2, 3. First cast the line, second wait for the fish and third reel it in! We’ll go into it more here but it’s not too difficult.

1. Cast The Line

With the fishing pole on your hotbar selected, head over to a body of water and cast your line. This can be in the ocean, river or lake. When you cast your line a power meter appears. The longer you press the button to cast, the farther your line will be thrown.

Note: Cast length in our game impacts the size of fish you are likely to catch. For example, a shorter cast has a higher chance of catching a small fish like a goldfish.

2. Wait For A Bite

Wait for a few moments and a dark silhouette of a fish will appear and approach your hook. The silhouette will be the same regardless of whether it’s a fish or just junk. It will then start nibbling on the hook for a few times before it latches on with a bite.

Once a bite happens, push the reel button to hook the fish. If the line is reeled in before a bite happens, or if the fish is allowed to bite for too long, the fish will get away and you will have to cast again.

Step 3: Reel in the fish

If a fish is successfully hooked, you then have to reel the line back to you. Fishes are going to put up a fight however and they will start thrashing and splashing around as you try to pull them in. If you reel in your line while this is happening, two wriggly lines on the top and bottom of the meter will grow from the centre, indicating that the tension in your line is getting higher. If the wriggly lines extend to their maximum, the line will snap and the fish will get away.

The best time to reel in a fish is to wait for it to calm down. Reeling a fish while it is not splashing around will show the middle meter filling up and it will also show the silhouette being actually pulled closer to you. Continue reeling until the fish starts splashing again and until you manage to retrieve your line.
