How to fish in a sea of ​​thieves

April 8, 2024 by No Comments


I positively despise fishing mechanics in video games. They’re usually convoluted and tiring—a way to prolong hours of play. Sea of ​​Thieves isn’t unique in its fishing mechanics, but the beautiful scenery as you cast a line from the side of your ship at sea can’t be beat. This is how to fish in a sea of ​​thieves!

How Fishing in Sea of ​​Thieves Works

Fishing in Sea of ​​Thieves works like any other game in that you cast your line and wait for a bite. If you have fish on the line, your primary goal is to tire them out so you can reel in the line.

For example, if the fish is swimming to the left you pull your rod to the right. If the fish swims to the right, pull to the left. Pull your rod up if the fish is swimming straight ahead of you. Eventually, the fish will tire. When that happens, start spinning.

Unfortunately, it takes a while to turn a fish in Sea of ​​Thieves. On my most recent session, I went fishing exclusively from the dock side. The first fish I caught fought four times before succumbing to my intense agitation.

While you don’t need bait to fish Sea of ​​Thieves, it does help. When using bait you can attract a wide range of fish and more of them.

To find prey in Sea of ​​Thieves, start digging the terrain or inspect barrels on islands. There are grubs, leeches and earthworms; They all act as bait.
