Fishing Unlock

Fishing is a game feature which takes place in the Fishing Lake once the fishing boat has been repaired. It can be unlocked from level 27 and up.

Players can catch fish with lures and nets, lobsters with lobster traps, and ducks with duck traps.

Catching fish with lures

Lure in water

Players have to play a mini game where they throw the lure into the water, wait for a fish to get hooked, then keep the fish within a small circle (called the fishing circle) for a certain time. Should the fish escape the circle and let go of the lure, players may try again with the same lure.

Cooldown bird

Once a fish is caught the spot gets into cooldown time and players must wait before they are able to catch a new fish. A spot in cooldown time has a seagull in its center (see the table below for cooldown time per spot).

Players can only catch one fish per spot. Fish give between 4 and 20 xpExperience points each.

Fishing with lures lets players catch all different types of fish and get fishing book rewards (see Fishing Book).

Catching fish with nets

Net in water

Players drop the net into the water and automatically catch three fish after 20 hours. The three fish give players 7 xpExperience points. There is no cooldown time.

Net with fish

Fishing with lures lets players catch 'red' fish only (i.e. the three species of fish one can caught with red lures). Moreover, they do not count for fishing book rewards or towards fishing tasks in derbies.

Players can also use mystery nets to try and catch rarer items instead or in addition to fish.

Catching lobsters and ducks

Main article: Duck Trap

Lobsters and ducks are caught with traps made in the Net Maker. Each trap can catch one animal and each animal is automatically caught after several hours (6 for lobsters and 3 for ducks). There are no fishing book rewards for catching lobsters or ducks.

Fishing spots

Fishing Spot Locked

Main article: Expansion

The lake contains twelve spots delimited by vegetation or rocks. When players unlock the fishing feature only two spots are unlocked. Unlocking the other spots requires expansion supplies.

Strategy tips

  • There is currently a bug/exploit where you can catch fish with lures as per usual even though your barn is full or over-full.

Easter eggs

  • During Halloween a ghost can occasionally be spotted over the lake. Tapping on it will give players random items (see Mystery Box for details).
  • During Winter, present boxes can occasionally be spotted over the lake. Tapping on them will give players random items. Firework barrels replace presents during New Year's and Chinese New Year's. See Mystery Box for details.
