How to Fish in 'Final Fantasy 15': Full guide, tips and tricks
Everyone in your party in Final Fantasy 15 has a special skill. Gladiolus' is survival, Ignis cooks those obscenely delicious-looking meals and Prompto takes a lot of pictures of Noctis looking uncomfortable. Noctis' skill is fishing. That's not a particularly useful skill in the game's first Cars-like desert area, but you'll find a good fishing spot at Galdin Quay, a location you'll visit as a part of the main quest line in chapter 1.
Here's everything you need to know about fishing in Final Fantasy 15 based on my experience playing the game so far..
How to fish in Final Fantasy 15
First off, let's discuss why you'd want to fish in the first place. Not only does fishing provide Ignis with ingredients he needs to cook meals for your squad at campsites but it also earns you ability points, which you need to gain new abilities in the "ascension" menu. If you're running low on Gil, you can also sell fish you catch to make some extra cash.
Okay, onto fishing itself! You'll know if you can fish in a specific area if there's a little blue fish icon on your map near a body of water. The first area you can fish is at the end of a dock at Galdin Quay, which looks like this:
Once you start fishing, you can choose where to cast your line with the left thumbstick. Make sure you throw it in an area populated with rarer fish, which you can check by referring to the mini map in the upper-right corner of the screen. (A guide for what the different dot colors mean is embedded below.) Additionally, the icon in the water itself will change color based on the rarity of the fish that occupy that area. When it changes from blue to gold, that means there's an edible fish in that area. Use both the mini map and this indicator to make sure you're casting your line in the right spot.
If you've thrown your line in a spot populated with fish, you should get an on-screen indication that a fish is interested in your lure. To get the fish to bite, you can lightly tap the right trigger to make the lure bob through the water in a jerky motion, which will entice the fish. You can typically see where the fish is in the water, so that should help you know how much or how little to move the lure. If you get too far away, the music indicating that a fish is nearby will fade out and you'll have to cast your line again.
Once the fish bites, you'll enter an automated mini game where you have to simultaneously move the left thumbstick in the direction indicated on screen while reeling in your line with the right trigger. Be careful, though. When the horizontal line on the bottom of the screen changes from white to red, that means your line is under too much stress and might break if you keep holding the right trigger. Only reel in your line when the indicator is white. If it changes color, back off for a few moments.
If you're following the on-screen indicators, eventually you'll reel the fish close enough to complete the catch.
Final Fantasy 15: Fishing tips and tricks
If you're having trouble getting a fish to bite, make sure you have the right type of lure equipped. Each lure is suited to catch specific types of fish, so check to see if the lure you're using corresponds to the type of fish that occupy that specific body of water.
If you're not sure which type of lure to use, look out for signs near bodies of water that indicate what types of fish are in the area and equip a lure that will attract those specific varieties. For example, a sign right next to Bob's Tackle Shop at Galdin Quay indicates that Giant Trevally and Galdin Trevally occupy the nearby waters, so the lure called "Poppeck: Chocobo" — which you can buy at Bob's Tackle Shop — would be a good option.
To equip a lure, just follow the onscreen instructions once you've started fishing, but before you cast your line. On PS4, you just tap the touch pad and select your lure.
If you're really having a tough time — or if you're just not great at paying attention to the stress on your line when you're reeling in a fish — you can also swap out the default fishing line for something sturdier. You can buy stronger fishing lines at Bob's Tackle Shop. You'll equip them in the same menu where you pick between lures.
That's all there is to it! Good luck!

Fishing is Noctis' Leisure skill. The primary use of Fishing is to acquire Ingredients not easily acquired in any other way.
In order to fish, you must have at least one Lure and at least one Fishing Line in your inventory. These Items can be purchased from specialty fishing shops, or less often from general shops, and sometimes found in the field. There are also Rods and Reels; using a higher-tier Rod and Reel will make it easier to catch better fish.
The first step during fishing is to find a place to fish. There are many fishing holes in the game, mostly in Duscae and Cleigne, and each has its own selection of fish to catch (you can also fish from the Royal Vessel). The next task is to look at the radar. Yellow marks on the map indicate fish that provide Ingredients; other fish are marked in blue. The double (larger) dots indicate rarer (though not necessarily larger) fish.
At this point, it's time to cast. Assuming you're near enough a fish and the conditions to catch it are met, there is a chance it will take interest in your Lure. You need to move the Lure around through a combination of directionals and reeling (different fish like different patterns) to hopefully get the fish to bite, at which point you will receive a button prompt to hook it. (If you don't want to catch that type of fish, you can ignore the prompt and the fish will swim away after a while without any sort of penalty.) Once the fish has been hooked, you'll need to follow the button prompts (generally directional button presses) while reeling in the fish; note that at this point, there's no way to release the fish without breaking your Line or catching it. Reeling while not doing the correct button prompt will wear out your line at a rate dependent on the difficulty of the fish and the Defense rating of your Rod. If the Line breaks, the fish will swim away, and you will lose your Lure as well (unless the Lure is one of the few that cannot be lost, which are mostly Lures given as unique rewards for completing certain quests). Reeling will move the progress gauge at the top of the screen at a rate dependent on the Offense rating of your Reel and the difficulty of the hooked fish.
Once the gauge is finished, the fish will be caught and you'll receive an Item (which depends on the fish) plus an entry for the fish in the Archives. If you have Angler Action you will gain 1 AP for catching fish, and Reel Experience grants EXP in addition. With the Sportfishing Node, you will receive the full amount of AP for catching a fish rather than the 1 AP from Angler Action (although many low-end fish are only worth 1 AP anyway).
As a final note, game time continues to run while fishing, except during the Liege of the Lake Tour.
The first thing you need to do is figure out what you want to catch, and get the right conditions for it to appear. Especially for those going for a complete list of fish, a common issue is how to manipulate time and weather. For Fishing Spots near a Haven it's no issue, but for those further away, you'll have to get more creative. The simplest way to do this is to camp at a Haven (anywhere is fine), then drive the Regalia to the Fishing Spot. From here, you can use the Haven (with Return to rest point in the Map menu) to advance time (which also can affect the weather), then use Return to car to quickly get near the haven. Just make sure to have Chocobos available as well, many Fishing Spots are far from the roads.
The Royal Vessel works a little differently. Instead of predefined Fishing Spots, you can fish from anywhere the Royal Vessel can go (except while it is docked). While sailing manually, you will have a fish radar. Blue means no fish, green means few fish, yellow means some fish, orange means many fish, and red means loads of fish. The chances of larger (and rarer) fish spawning also scale as you work your way up the color scale, so it's in your best interest to stick to orange and red spots most of the time. There are also fish exclusively available using the Royal Vessel; these only appear in specific areas, and then only on red spots.
Other than figuring out the conditions to catch the type of fish you want (which are given for all the game's different fish in the table below), the trickiest part about fishing is reeling in the tougher/better catches. As a simple rule of thumb, you should not reel unless the tension indicator is not being shown (regardless of its color) and the fish is not changing direction. Higher-end fish will wear down your Line very quickly if you reel while not pressing the correct direction. It may help you to watch the movement of the fish itself, or of the camera, rather than trying to follow the prompts themselves; this all comes down to personal preference. Another trick is that you can briefly (for a half-second or so) tap the reel button while the fish is struggling without penalty (but not while it changes direction). In the end, practice makes perfect, both to gain proficiency with the timing involved and to level up Noctis' Fishing Skill.
Tips for Specific Fish
- All Lucian Carp varieties: All the varieties of Carp in Saxham Reservoir (and the few found elsewhere, for that matter) have properties that differentiate them from most other fish: specifically, they're very picky about Lures (they won't take any except the exact one listed) and not at all picky about time or weather. In addition, Carp, like real-life fish but unlike most in-game fish, very frequently don't bite even with the correct Lure, meaning you'll probably have to cast at them several times. You can either try different Carp Lures in a crowd to see if anything reacts (you'll pick up some Dace as well, just catch them to get them out of the way), or look at the large fish here, whose names are descriptions of their appearance (Gold Lucian Carp is brilliant gold, Sunny Lucian Carp is a pale yellow with a red spot on its head, Bronze Lucian Carp is a deep reddish-brown, Marble Lucian Carp has multi-colored spots, etc.) and pick the correct Lure for the fish in question. Be sure your Line is in decent condition though; Carp have surprisingly high stamina, but thankfully they don't struggle too much.
- Morion Trout: This fish has a very low spawn rate, and seems to appear more often in the extremely late hours of the night. Simply enter and exit the fishing game until a double blue dot appears.
- Noble/Regal Arapaima: These fish have similar properties; the slightly easier Noble Arapaima is the fish targeted for the Liege of the Lake Tour, while Regal Arapaima is entirely optional though a great test of your fishing skill. Both fish struggle often, with incredible Stamina and high but not extreme Attack (that is, damage dealt to the line). Once you have the top equipment (Kupoberry Cheesecake is recommended but not necessary), go to the desired location and try to catch the fish. Once hooked, it's a question of patience; reel in short bursts, never when the fish is changing direction quickly (it will change 3-4 times before deciding on a direction)--the line drain per mistake isn't significant (about 50 with the ideal setup), but there are so many chances for error that avoiding unnecessary line tension is essential.
- Pink Jade Gar: Arguably the toughest of all fish (on the mainland anyway), the Pink Jade Gar has very low Stamina for a top-tier fish (300,000), but its attack is by far the highest in the game, checking in at a whopping 5.4 (for comparison, the next highest "normal" fish, the Mighty Barramundi, has 3.6, and Regal Arapaima and Barbaric Gar both have 3.5). Save before attempting to catch this. More than anything, you need to learn its attack patterns and reel in short bursts. PJG will struggle long enough for about 2-3 reeling bursts (remember that a white Tension indicator does not indicate line damage) before sinking down and changing direction (it can sometimes change direction during the struggle but it doesn't do so frequently). After this direction change, it can either struggle again (most common), change direction again (it will then change a third time very quickly, back to its original direction), jump, or remain still (rare). Wait a half second after the initial direction change before reeling; If it struggles simply repeat the struggle pattern; if it changes direction, wait for it to finish, after which it will struggle. In the rare event it remains still, you can hold down reel, but be ready to release the instant the white Tension indicator appears on screen. If it jumps, after the jump itself, it will either change direction once or do nothing; again, wait a half second. If it changes direction, it will go into struggle (or, rarely, jump) again, but if it doesn't, you'll have about two seconds to reel before it rises up to struggle again. Kupoberry Cheesecake and top equipment is strongly recommended, as is clear weather in daytime (makes it easier to see the fish); you should also try to catch it fairly close to you, to make it easier to see (it moves around a lot, so you can just drop your line about halfway out in its general direction and it will likely swim into your Lure). It will definitely take some practice, but with patience and perfecting your technique it can be done.
- Dread Grouper: Can only be caught with Big Master Typhon Lure. Otherwise, it is fairly standard for a high-end fish, and similar to the Murk Grouper caught in the Angler's Nightmare sidequest.
- Mummy Bass: To catch the Mummy Bass, after sailing to the map marker for Monster of the Deep (if you already completed the "quest" and wish to return, just check your completed quests to get the location), hook one of the single (small) blue dots where the Royal Vessel stops. (Lure should be Tidal Might Leviathan or Big Blaze Bahamut.) It will spawn anytime but it's easiest to start this in the morning, to avoid nighttime visibility problems. Reel in a little (to about 1/6th of the Stamina gauge or so), but nothing beyond that. Follow the button prompts and the Mummy Bass will eventually eat the smaller fish, allowing you to hook it in turn. (This can take several minutes, so be patient. If you've waited a while, reel slightly and you may trigger Mummy Bass's appearnace.) Be sure to continue following the prompts while waiting for Mummy Bass to bite to avoid wasting your line condition (you don't need to actually do anything else, it will always bite once it appears unless you catch the fish first).
Once you have the Mummy Bass on the line, you're in for a tough contest. Mummy Bass has the stamina of the Regal Arapaima and the attack of the Pink Jade Gar, although thankfully it's more docile than either of those two (though it's recommended to catch both of the prior two fish before attempting this, to practice technique). The overall strategy is similar to that of the Pink Jade Gar, but there are some key differences. For one thing, Mummy Bass changes direction much more frequently during struggle than PJG does, so be careful reeling during struggle. It will either do this about three to four seconds into the struggle or not at all (unless it hits one of the side barriers, which forces a direction change). Second, it sometimes (about 25% of the time, more often in the latter half of its Stamina bar) turns at the end of struggle, before dropping down. Finally, the Mummy Bass stays out of struggle far more often after dropping down or jumping than PJG does, either turning and dropping again, jumping, or remaining motionless. Because of this, you'll often be able to knock off significant portions of its HP in between its struggles. You still need to be attentive, after its drops it can (and often will) change direction, but especially when it remains motionless--which happens most often after a jump but can also happen directly after a drop-down--you can often get a couple seconds of quiet reeling in. Just be ready to lay off when the Tension meter appears. Otherwise, overall strategy is similar to the PJG--be aggressive, but smart and accurate.
- Styrial Bluefin Tuna: Catching this requires you to spawn Bismarck (to do this the first time, you need to do the A Second Sea God quest; after that, the quest will not repeat, but you can return to the same area after resting to trigger the scene again); once you leave the fishing interface (or the area) after triggering a Bismarck appearance, you'll have to re-trigger Bismarck for the Tuna to appear (rest anywhere that tallies EXP, then return). The best Lure for this is Big Blaze Bahamut but Tidal Might Leviathan also works. As to actually landing the Styrial Bluefin Tuna, it's a little easier than the Noble Arapaima (same stamina, but seems to have lower attack (line damage) and isn't as aggressive) and much easier than the "holy trinity" fish (Regal Arapaima, Pink Jade Gar, Mummy Bass) at any rate. Note that, as long as you don't leave the fishing interface (changing Line/Lure is fine), SBT will continue to spawn each time the fish refresh, allowing you to farm it quite easily assuming you have enough Fishing Line stockpiled.
Fishing Skill Levels
Noctis's Fishing Skill levels up as he catches more fish (better/more difficult fish level up the skill faster than easy ones). Each Level provides a bonus related to fishing. The Levels are listed in the table below.
|2||Long-Lasting Line||Fishing line receives 25% less damage when fish struggle|
|3||Tackle Discount I||Tackle shops offer 10% discount|
|4||Lure Allure I||Chances of hooking a fish increase by 25%|
|5||Able Angler||Medium-sized fish appear on the map|
|6||Tackle Discount II||Tackle shops now offer 30% discount|
|7||Longer-Lasting Line||Fishing line now receives 50% less damage when fish struggle|
|8||Lure Allure II||Chances of hooking a fish now increase by 50%|
|9||Tackle Discount III||Tackle shops now offer 50% discount|
|10||Ace Angler||All fish appear on the map|
Note that the Long-Lasting Line, Lure Allure, and Tackle Discount abilities do not stack with other abilities of the same type, and Tackle Discount only affects fishing shops, not general stores selling fishing gear.
List of Fishing Spots
This table lists all the game's different Fishing Spot. For each Fishing Spot, its Region and a more specific Location are marked, as well as the types of Fish found there and the colors they will appear as on the map. Fish with their names underlined will appear as double (large) dots. Fish exclusive to the Fishing Spot in question will be marked with a *.
Most Fishing Spots (except some located within an Outpost) have a random Lure and a spool of Fishing Line nearby, in case you forgot to get them before. Both of these will respawn, except for those in Outposts or Dungeons.
Leide Fishing Spots
Being an arid region, Leide naturally has few Fishing Spots, mostly along the southern coast.

List of Fish
This section lists the different fish in Final Fantasy XV. Some types of Fish have small and large variants with different properties--these will be listed separately in the table below. Map indicates how the fish appears on your in-game map (yellow fish provide Ingredients, while blue fish do not); remember that Noctis' Fishing Level must be high enough for a given size of fish, or the fish will not appear on the map at all (though it can still be caught as normal). Stamina is the stamina of the fish--higher Stamina scores indicate fish that take longer to reel in and give a rough guide to the difficulty of reeling in a given fish. Lure indicates the preferred Lure, if any, for that type of fish. Note that most fish can be caught with non-preferred Lures, but it will be more difficult. Fish without a preferred Lure can be caught with any Lure. Exp and AP indicate the Exp gained with Reel Experience and the AP gained with Sportfishing, respectively. If you don't have Sportfishing but do have Angler Action, you will simply be awarded 1 AP regardless. Item is the Item that is awarded for catching that fish; if you have Item Angler you will get two of the listed Item per fish caught, and with Expert Item Angler, three per fish. Fishing Spot indicates where you can catch the fish; all fish are available at any time of day anywhere they can be caught unless marked otherwise. If multiple conditions are marked, then all must be satisfied for the fish to appear there.
(Tip: If you're looking for a particular fish, use CTRL + F or your mobile browser's search function to find it in the table below.)

How To Fish In 'Final Fantasy 15' Skill Guide: Best Locations, Equipment And Bonuses To Level Fishing Fast
Now that Final Fantasy 15 is finally out, you’ll want to explore every nook and cranny of its densely-packed world. If you want all your achievements, you’ll need to master fishing, Noctis’s royal skill. Here’s our tips and tricks guide for how to fish in Final Fantasy XV.
First of all, Noctis starts off with everything he needs to get started fishing so you don’t need to buy anything. Position yourself at a fishing spot and use these basic commands:
L to aim, and then after casting, to pull the line in any direction
X (PS4) or A to cast
R2 (PS4) or right trigger to reel in
Circle (PS4) or B to quit
The start pad (PS4) or the menu button to open the Tackle menu and change your equipment
When you’re aiming, a blue marker indicates where your lure hits the water. Use the minimap in the top right corner of the screen, which is marked with colorful dots where you’ll find fish. Yellow dots indicate edible fish that provide ingredients Ignis can use in his meals, while blue are prize fish that yield treasures.
Cast your line and reel in with R2 or right trigger. Don’t just drag the line back in a straight line; you want to twitch the line around with L, tap R2/RT and pause every once in awhile to provoke a fish’s attentions.
The game actually measures a fish’s interest using a red bar at the top of the screen. You want to adapt the way you move and pause your line so that you build up the interest bar. Once that bar stretches to the whole length of the screen horizontally, the fish will bite.
Once the fish bites, you and your piscine enemy begin a delicate dance. While your goal is to reel in the fish, you’ll have to watch your line’s durability to do so. Here’s how:
When you get a bite, tilt L in the direction the screen instructs. If you don’t, the fish will just swim away. Then reel in with R2/RT, causing the fish’s stamina to decrease. The stamina can be seen on the top of the screen. Once the horizontal gauge is empty, you win the fish.
The fish will swim around randomly with your line suffering as a result, so you need to take aim. Tilt L to the left or right, wherever the fish is swimming, to keep your line intact. If you just fart around as the fish flails on your line, a hidden tension gauge will fill slowly , but if you aim in the wrong direction entirely, the gauge will start filling up fast. You can tell this is happening because your control will vibrate heavily. Tilting the stick in the right direction keeps the tension bar empty.
The tension causes damage to your line and when the line’s durability reaches zero, it breaks. That means you’ll lose both the line and the lure you had equipped. The key is to manage this tension by pushing constantly in the right direction, tweaking your aim sharply and quickly, and reeling in fish with short bursts while releasing tension the rest of the time so your line stays intact.
If a fish jumps in the air, it “attacks” you. Tilt L right away in the direction the screen says to cancel out the damage to your line as well as lower the fish’s stamina.
Lures : There’s lots of lures in the game. You’ll need to swap out which lure you use based on what fish you’re hoping to hook and where. Popper lures let you seek fish near the surface, pencil lures let you fish more effectively at dawn or dusk, swisher lures make boring fishing spots more lively, crankbait lures help you in rocky or littered waters, minnow lures work in clear waters, and vibration lures are best for wide areas.
Lure Weight : The heavier the lure, the deeper underwater it goes, and the bigger the fish it catches.
Lure Color : Fish like colors close to their own. Get a red lure for a red fish.
There are many lure possibilities, but pick the one best for the environment you’re hoping to catch the fish.
Lines: With only three types of line, you’ll mostly be purchasing these from shops. The higher the durability, the longer it can hold out against tension (aka damage) inflicted by fish.
Rods: Rods provide defense, which determines how much tension damage on your line they cancel out. You can get better rods from shops and by completing sidequests for Nayth.
Reels: Reels determine how fast you knock out a fish’s stamina bar as you reel it in - basically your fish attack stat. Tackle shops have high-quality reels, but the very best reel is called Llymlaen and is a reward in the Totomostro mini-game.
Here’s what fish you can find and where in the world of Altissia you can find them.
Gondola Marina : Cygillan Sea Bass, Lucinian Sea Bass, Tide Grouper
Vannath Coast: Giant Trevally, Galdin Trevally, Murk GRouper, GLowing Barrelfish
Crestholm Reservoir : Horned Bluegill, Lucian Catfish, Alstor Bass, Golden Catfish
Neeglyss Pond : Horned Bluegill, Chipped Bluegill, Lucian Catfish, Alstor Bass, Crag Barramundi, King Catfish
Swainsmere: Horned Bluegill, Chipped Bluegill, Lucian Catfish, Alstor Bass
Malacchi Pond: Alstor Bass, Lucian Catfish, Snakehead, Garnet SNakehead
Forgotten Pool : Horned Bluegill, Chipped Bluegill, Rainbow Trout
Daurell Spring: Snakehead, Garnet Snakehead, Jade Snakehead, Alstor Bass, Phoenix Bass, Pink Jade Gar
River Wennath: Cherrycomb Trout, Rainbow Trout, Callatein Brook Trout, Chrome Rainbow Trout
Rachsia Bridge: Chipped Bluegill, ZIpper Barramundi, Alstor Bass, Nebula Salmon
The Maidenwater: Rainbow Trout, Maiden Brook Trout, Nebula Salmon
Caem Shore: Striped Barramundi, Tide Grouper, Dark Allural Sea Bass
The Vesperpool - East Bank: Glimmering Bluegill, Phoenix Bass, Crag Barramundi, Golden Catfish, Sapphire Snakehead, Noble Arapaima
The Vesperpool - West Bank: Glimmering Bluegill, Fan Bluegill, Golden Catfish, Garnet Snakehead, Sapphire Snakehead, Vesper Gar
Myrlwood Falls: Cleigne Brown Trout, Platinum Myrltrout, Maiden Brook Trout, Callatein Brook Trout, Chrome Rainbow Trout
So what do you get in return for all this work?
Skill Level 2: Fishing line wear down 25 percent less quickly when fish struggle
Skill Level 3: Tackle shops offer 10 percent discount on all items
Skill Level 4: Chances of hooking fish are increased by 25 percent
Skill Level 5: Ability to catch fish up 31.5 inches
Skill Level 6: Tackle shops offer 30 percent discount on all items

Skill Level 8: Chances of hooking a fish increased by 50 percent
Skill Level 9: Tackle shops offer 50 percent discount

Best Fishing Gear
Top fishing gear for fishing in the game (Rod, Reel, Line, and Lure):
Pink Jade Gar
The Pink Jade Gar is the hardest fish to catch in Final Fantasy XV. Video shows pro tips on how to catch the Pink Jade Gar.
The Regal Arapiama is also one of the hardest fish to catch in Final Fantasy XV. It is tied with Pink Jade Gar in difficulty. This fish requires you to be defensive most of the time, and the fish is located in the hidden Fishing Spot at The Vesperpool - North Banks
Devil of Cygillan and Tranquility Rod
Catching the Murk Grouper in Galdin Quay will award you with the best Fishing Rod in the game (Tranquility)
The biggest (large, not long) fish in FFXV is the Dread Grouper. It is bigger than the King Catfish and the Pink Jade Gar (both of which are thin and long, rather than big). You can catch the Dread Grouper in Galdin Quay after you have caught the Murk Grouper.
The Best Lure is the Big Blaze Bahamut, which you can never lose, as it always comes back even if your line snaps.

I was hoping to see something epic. A mortal battle between man and fish.
Fishing(釣り, Tsuri?) is a minigame in Final Fantasy XV where the player can gather food ingredients for cooking at camp sites and prize fish that cannot be eaten. The player can catch fish of all sizes in bodies of water, using various different rods and lures. Upon catching new fish, the party can unlock new recipes. Fishing is an optional pastime, but some quests require one to fish.
How to fish
The fishing game minigame uses button prompts while reeling in a fish. The fish that appear blue on the radar are acquired as "treasures" in the item inventory; the yellow ones on the radar are "ingredients" that can be cooked at camp. Dots with an outer circle on the radar indicate the location of uncommon fish. Quitting fishing and restarting respawns the fish, so the player can keep trying for the specific fish they want. Sometimes the fish splash on the surface of the water to tip the player to an especially good spot to cast their line.
Fishing requires at least one usable fishing line and lure. Both can be purchased at shops, including tackle shops located near select fishing holes. As Noctis's fishing skill increases, both the speed at which lines deteriorate and the cost of lures decrease. Noctis can acquire new fishing rods and reels, boosting his fishing offense and defense.
To start fishing, the player must find a fishing spot in a body of water. They become marked on the map after being discovered, and the player can also learn about them beforehand from tipsters and from fishing magazines found lying around the world. Some fishing spots have signs that denote what kind of fish can be caught there, although these are not fully comprehensive. Fishing at different times of day and in varying weather may yield different fish. The player can't fish with Aranea in the party, or in Chapter 14.
When the player begins to fish, Noctis summons a rod to his hand. Entering the menu at this point lets the player choose their fishing equipment.
The player uses the action button to cast the line and the right shoulder button to reel the line. To get the fish to bite one must use a lure, and specific lures work for specific fish; if the player uses an incompatible lure, the fish will simply ignore it. When the lure is near a fish a red bar appears to the top of the screen and a sound cue will play, same as for initiating a battle on the field. The fish pulling on the line wears it down, and if it snaps and the fish gets away, the player will lose their lure (there is one special lure obtained from a side quest that cannot be lost, however). The line wear is depicted as a numerical value, and the player should replace their line from the equipment menu when it wears thin.
The player must follow the button prompts that appear on-screen to reel in the fish. The player should not reel when there is no tension on the line that makes the gauge go red, and when there is tension to push the analog stick to the direction the screen prompts to relieve it. At times fish jump out of the water with a button prompt to follow, which lets Noctis reel his catch a little closer.
There is a record of what kinds of fish have been caught. It is possible to catch fish up to one meter in length.
A good strategy is to not look at the strength of the line or the progress gauge at the top, as once a fish has been hooked the player is committed to catching it. Instead, the player can watch the fish to anticipate its movement, and move the rod the same way the fish is moving. If a fish is far away, the player can use its wake to determine movement. The camera always moves in the same direction as the fish and can thus also be easier to observe.
It can be a good idea to not reel when the fish is changing direction rapidly, and only reel when it is moving consistently in one direction. When the water splashes and the controller is vibrating, the fish is struggling. Reeling is much more effective when the fish doesn't struggle, and for the big fish it is advised to not reel when they struggle as it creates tension on the line. Tapping the reel button once, rather than holding, when the fish struggles, doesn't deplete from the line strength, but can slightly advance the progress bar at the top. For catching the big fish, repeatedly tapping the reel button rather than holding tends to work better to avoid wearing down the line.
For the superfish like the Mummy Bass in the Windows and Royal Editions that destroy the line fast, one may tap the pause button and adjust the reel/do not reel and direction as needed while paused, although it takes a long time to reel in a big fish this way.
The Booster Pack +, which is included in the season pass, contains the second most powerful fishing rod and reel, making it easier to fish and level up Noctis's fishing skills. This can enable the player to get fishes that yield tremendous status boosts early in the game to gain a huge advantage and level up efficiently as well as leveling Ignis's cooking skills from cooking complex dishes.
