Stellar Blade – The Complete Fishing Guide

Stellar Blade isn’t all just intense combat and saving the world. Sometimes, a weary adventurer needs a moment of peace, and what better way to unwind than by casting a line? Fishing in Stellar Blade offers a relaxing escape and a chance to snag some unique rewards.

This guide will equip you with everything you need to become a master angler, from acquiring your first rod to reeling in the elusive Whale Shark.

 

How To Start Fishing

Before you can become a fishing champion, you’ll need to progress through the story until you reach the Great Desert. Here, you’ll encounter Clyde at the Oasis. Talk to him to start the Looking Glass fishing tutorial and he’ll gift you your trusty fishing rod.

Once you have your rod, equip it and approach a body of water (remember, not all water sources are teeming with fish). Look for areas with visible ripples or shimmering effects – these are your prime fishing spots. Then start fishing.

  1. Cast Your Line: With the rod equipped, select the bait you want to use and flick the right analogue stick to cast into the water.
  2. Hook, Line, and Sinker: Be patient! When a fish bites, a prompt will appear. Press the indicated button to set the hook.
  3. The Reel Deal: Now comes the fight! The fish will tug and thrash. Counter its movements by steering the left stick in the opposite direction and rapidly tapping the designated button to tire it out.
  4. Reel It In: At intervals, you’ll get the chance to reel the fish in. Hold down the button, keeping the meter within the blue zone to avoid snapping the line.

Stellar Blade

The future of humanity hangs in the balance in Stellar Blade, an all-new story-driven action adventure. Ravaged by strange, powerful creatures, Earth has been abandoned, and what is left of the decimated human race has fled to a Colony in outer space.

After travelling from the Colony, the 7th Airborne Squad member EVE arrives on the desolate remains of our planet with a clear-cut mission: to save humankind by reclaiming Earth from the Naytiba – the malevolent force that has devastated it. But as EVE tackles the Naytiba one by one, piecing together the mysteries of the past in the ruins of human civilization, she realizes that her mission is far from straightforward. In fact, almost nothing is as it seems.

Stellar Blade is out now on PlayStation 5.
