Cast Your Rod: A Guide to Fishing in FFXV: ANE

What you need to know about Fishing in EOS

Put on your waders and grab your tackle box, fishing has come to EOS! Fancy some quiet time on the lake? Lean back in your chair and cast your rod, as we discuss the new Fishing Mini-game!

What is Fishing?

Fishing in FFX is… exactly what it sounds like. There is now a building where you can fish for various types and levels of fish. Sometimes you will catch a fish, and something you will catch junk from the bottom of the lake. Bait increases your chance for catching something good, which we will go over later in this guide.

Where do I Fish?

In order to Fish, you must enter the Fishing Hut. All players have this new building unlocked for free. It is located to the left of the Casino.

Upon entering the Fishing Hut you will see four options.

  • Locations: This is where you will enter to Fish. Currently, there is only one location, but more are coming.
  • Fishing Level: This shows your current fishing level. You level this up by adding Fish EXP, which is currently earned by fishing. The higher the level, the higher your fishing boosts. The highest level is currently 50.

Fishing EXP

  • Fish Bait and Inventory: This shows your current Fish and Meat Items and Bait
  • Collection: Check out what Fish you have caught here!

How do I Fish?

Once you have entered the Fishing Hut and chosen your location, You will see your rod in front of you.

First, decide if you want to use bait. It is not necessary but increases your chances of catching something good. The Bait option is to the upper right in the above picture. Each Bait gives a boost to your cast, and those other than Royal Lake Bait are focused on catching specific Fish.

Once you have decided if you want to use bait (and equipped it if desired), cast your rod. When you catch a fish you will be prompted to “Reel In”. Once you do this a bar will come up with a green area that you must stay in to catch the fish. Press your finger down until you’re inside the green bar and then tap tap tap to stay there until the Fish (or junk) is caught (their Stamina bar will deplete).

Fishing

You can catch the following Fish in the Royal Lake;

  • Horned Bluegill
  • Lucian Catfish
  • Nebula Salmon
  • Pink Jade Gar
  • Tide Grouper
  • Snakehead
  • Golden Trout (most rare)

Each fish comes in Quality Level 1-6, with increasing rewards for each level.

Gear

What’s a good Fisherperson without Fishing Gear? Of course, there’s Gear, and it comes in the form of a Fishing Rod! The Fishing Rod is not sold complete in packs but rather crafted in the Armory. Catching Fish gives you materials for crafting this (if you’re lucky).

A Level 6 Rod gives the following stats:

  • 25% Successful Catch Chance
  • 30% Bait Efficiency
  • 25% Hook Speed

Moogle Market

The is a Fishing Moogle Market open to earn various items such as Fish Bait, Trusty Rod Gear Chests, Fishing EXP 10% Bonus and Fishing Avatars.

I think that’s enough baking in the sun for today. Time to head in for some water and a Golden Trout filet. Do you have any comments or questions about Fishing in FFX? Let us know in the comments below or join us on Facebook or chat with us on our Discord and Line channels!
