How To Fish

Fishing on Fern Island can be done in any body of water on the island and you’ll need to start is a fishing rod and some bait. To start off with equip the Fishing Rod and select what bait you’d like to use. There are several types of bait in the game from dough, worms, fish and plugs. Different types of bait will attract different fish. Then next you’ll need to cast your line into the water.

When you’re line is in the water it’ll start to attract fish, you’ll be able to see the fish tug at your rod. Once you get an interested fish, hit the action button to capture it. You’ll then enter a little fishing minigame. Two gauges will appear on the right, the blue one that represents the strength of the fish and the green one that represents the strength of your rod. Reel the fish in to lower the blue gauge, without lowering your own green one. This requires some patience and trial and error until you’re able to wear out the fish and reel it in.

If the rod strength drops down to zero, the fish will escape.

 

Fishing Rods

Primitive Rod (1,000g) – “Basic version of the rod, good for beginning anglers and amateurs.”

Great Rod (3,500g) – With a stronger and more stable design, it makes it much easier to catch even the most aggressive and large fish.

Master Rod (6,000g) – It increases the quality of the fish caught and greatly simplifies the fishing process.

The Witch of Fern Island

Welcome to the mysterious Fern Island! A lush temperate isle home to three great magical cultures – Boran, Apatut, and Kuqkwa – including one bright-eyed newcomer, Abrill. After crashing onto the island during her travels to a magical academy, the young witch makes the most of the situation, still eager to become a full-fledged Witch. Instead of waiting idly for her arrival, the Academy of Witches also decided to use this as an opportunity for young Abrill to demonstrate her mastery of magic and unveil the secrets of the mysterious island.

The Witch of Fern Island is out now on PC – Steam.
