If you thought fishing on an xbox controller was hard, think again.
When to use A, S, and d.
Once a fish bites the hook it will start to swim in different directions. The way to keep your line from breaking is by pulling the rod opposite of the direction the fish is swimming.
A- Pulls rod to the left (Fish swimming to the right)
S- Pulls rod towards the player (Fish swimming directly away from you)
D- Pulls rod to the right (Fish is swimming to the left)
This mechanic is a hold and not a toggle. Keep pressing the key that corresponds to the formula above.
Reeling is when you crank the handle of the fishing rod to pull a fish in. You can reel the fish in when the fish rests and, as a more advanced tactic, when it is still swimming.
Left Click- Pulls the fish closer
Right Click- Lets go of the line as well as the fish
Reeling in a Limp Fish:
When your fish lays limp in the ocean quickly hold down left click until it decides to start swimming again(No pulling on the line with A, S, or D is required while the fish is limp).
Example of a limp fish:
NOTICE HOW THE FISHING LINE IS LOOSE AND THERE IS NO WATER TRAIL BEHIND THE FISH; THESE ARE WAYS TO TELL IF THE FISH IS RESTING.
Reeling in a Swimming Fish:
While the fish is swimming you can hold down left click in small intervals to accelerate the rate at which you catch it. When doing this you have to still be pulling on the rod with A, S, or D(look at the section above on A, S, and D). In order to keep your line from breaking, you can only hold down left click until the rod begins to vibrate.
NEVER stop pulling on the rod to start reeling in a swimming fish.
When reeling in a swimming fish, your hand and the handle should not move that much:
Thank you for reading this! Being my first guide, I hope you liked it!
If you are reading this, you are a true pirate legend!!!
- Trophy fish take longer to catch and are more sensitive to mistakes in reeling and pulling.
- Your camera stays free until a fish bites. Once a fish bites the camera will focus on your rod.
- Grubs and areas affect the types of fish you will find.
HAVE FUN FISHING!!! I HOPE TO SEE YA’LL OUT THERE ON THE SEAS!!! 🙂
