Notice the tiny fishing sign to the left of the Fisherman. That is your designated fishing spot. Move to the location to start fishing.

The fishing mini-game is pretty easy to learn. Once started, you will see a gauge that corresponds to the distance to which you can cast your line. Fill it up according to the distance for the line.

Once a fish gets hooked, a bar will appear on the right side of your screen. Your job is to keep the hook inside the green bar to successfully reel the fish in.

You will observe three types of shadow during the mini-game which correspond to the type of fish you will obtain. A small shadow indicates Minnows whereas, for a medium shadow, you are likely to get either Salmon or Blowfish. Lastly, large shadows indicate several fishes like Tuna, Squid, Crab, Octopus, Swordfish, and Lobster.

You can also perform the Ritual of Ocean’s Bounty that will increase your chances of obtaining special and rare fish and you will also be able to catch an increased number of fish than usual.
