To start fishing you need to talk to any fisherman guild member, they are located in each town grocery stores, magic shops or harbors.

Getting Ready

Before you can start fishing, you need to learn fishing skills: fishing, pumping, reeling and fishing experience. You can do it from any fishing guild member by clicking “Learn fishing skills”. It's a good idea to have the Pumping and Reeling skills the same level as your Fishing Expertise - if the expertise skill is lower level it will cause poorer fishing abilities WARNING: fishing skills cost adena not sp, the higher the level you learn more it will cost. In the table below you can see the cost to learn ONE fishing skill.

skill level price skill level price
1 10 adena 14 23.000 adena
2 50 adena 15 30.000 adena
3 200 adena 16 40.000 adena
4 300 adena 17 53.000 adena
5 500 adena 18 66.000 adena
6 800 adena 19 80.000 adena

9 4.000 adena 22 120.000 adena
10 6.700 adena 23 130.000 adena
11 8.000 adena 24 140.000 adena
12 10.000 adena 25 160.000 adena
13 16.000 adena 26 173.000 adena

Getting Fishing Rods

You should always have to have a rod that is your grade. The same is applied as to the weapon, you get penalty if you use higher grade that your grade, you make much lower damage than you would made with your grade rod. The higher grade the rod is the better damage you make and faster you are able to catch a fish.

You can buy fishing rods from any fisher guild member in grocery in any town. You can buy 6 different grade rods: none, D, C, B, A, S. Their price directly depends on tax rates.

Getting Lures

There are quite a few types of lures and they catch different fishes. Most of them you can buy from the fishing guild
member, but some can be obtained from the quests. Prices of lures directly depend on tax rate.
 

Types of lures:

  •  Beginners’ lures (beginner green, purple, yellow lure) – you can practice how to fish, you will have a tutorial when and which skills to use. The fish that you catch is low grade and you do not get many items from it. Youcannot use beginner’s lure to catch fish that is needed for the quests.
  •  Green lure – with this lure you can catch ugly and nimble fish. Fish color is random.
  •  Purple lure - with this lure you can catch fat and nimble fish. Fish color is random.
  •  Yellow lure - with this lure you can catch ugly and fat fish. Fish color is random.
  •  Green luminous lure - with this lure you can catch upper grade ugly and nimble fish. Fish color is random. You can use this lure only at night (in Lineage game is from 12 am until 6 am in game time. In real life it is 1h, and day is 3h.)
  •  Purple luminous lure - with this lure you can catch upper grade fat and nimble fish. Fish color is random. You can use this lure only at night (in Lineage game is from 12 am until 6 am in game time. In real life it is 1h, and day is 3h.)
  •  Yellow luminous lure - with this lure you can catch upper grade fat and ugly fish. Fish color is random. You can use this lure only at night (in Lineage game is from 12 am until 6 am in game time. In real life it is 1h, and day is 3h.)
  •  Prize winning beginner lure, price winning lure, price winning luminous lure – using this lure you can catch the price winning fish. You can claim price once a week, you can check winning list from any fisherman guild member. Prices are following:

    •  2nd place – 500,000 adena
    •  3rd place – 300,000 adena
    •  4th place – 200,000 adena
    •  5th place – 100,000 adena

Getting Shots

Very first quest that you should start is the quest for the fishing shots. When you start this quest you have to kill monsters around the town areas except dungeons, tower of insolence, Gracia area and some other areas. The list of mobs you can find by talking again to the fishing guild member: quest ->quest for fishing shot (if NPC has more quests) ->show me the list of monsters. You can find the list by territory and area.
After you have sweet fluid you can exchange it for shots that you need. How to exchange sweet fluid? Talk to fishing guild member, click on: quest ->quest for fishing shot (if NPC has more quests) -> Make one with the fluid I have. You will get an option to choose shots that you need. Here you can see the shot prices:

shot grade shots per fluid shot grade shots per fluid
none 66 B 8
D 40 A 5
C 25 S 4

How To Fish

1st step: After you have learned fishing skills place skills the most comfortable way to you. I prefer this way:

2nd step: Equip your road and lure (double click or right click in your inventory).

3rd step: Use “fishing” called skill to start fishing. Shots are cannot be automated so for every use of any skills you have to use shots (without shots damage is to low and you don’t have enough time to catch a fish).

4th step: Here comes a tricky question how to know which skill to use and when. After you used “fishing” skill it will appear a small window showing how you wait for the fish to bite. When it bites the lure you see in the window the time you have left until the fish escapes and a horizontal bar with the fish's HP.
In most of the cases you got 25s until the fish spits the hook. When you see that the fish's HP bar (blue bar in the picture) started to fill up and the fish is struggleing you use skill “Reeling” (for more damage use shots). If you see that the fish's HP bar doesn’t change and the fish is more calm and doesnt fight use skill “Pumping”.
You can train using “newbie lure”, but I am very sure if you follow what I wrote, you can do with other lures.

What To Do With The Caught Fish

When you caught a fish you can double click on it to open it. If you want to know what a fish will give you just use the search function on this website and choose the fish. Here is one example, Big Blue Fat Fish.

What for is used proof of catching a fish?
With a proof of catching a fish you can upgrade:

When I will start learning skills, I will update this table. Fish can be used for quests:

Another way to get proof of catching a fish (pocf) is to trade "fish items" for it:

Trade Item POCF you receive
1 fish oil 1
1 greater fish oil 5
1 premium fish oil 25
1 fish scale 4
1 shiny fish scale 6
1 fish gem 10
1 shiny fish gem 20
1 shiny fish gem 6
1 thick fish bone 9

After you reach level 40 you are able to start the quest from Helvetia in grocery store in Giran: “a special order”. When you start it randomly gives you a task whether to fish or to seed seeds. If you get a task for bring orange fishes (if you want you can start & cancel the quest until you get desired option).

How To Get Any Colored Fish

When you level up you are not able to catch lower grade level fish. From any fisherman guild member you can buy “fisherman’s potion – specific color”. These potions lower your mastery level; this allows you to catch fishes that you want. When you have bought the potion just double click on it and you can catch desired color fish. This potion activates like a skill for 60 minutes. In the table below you can see a description of these potions.

Potion Decreases fishing level to
Green 1-3
Jade 4-6
Blue 7-9
Yellow 10-12
Orange 13-15
Purple 16-18
Red 19-21
White 22-24
Fishing potion Restore your fishing level

Fishing At Night

Fishing at night is more difficult but you have better chance to catch your fish and to get better drop from it. To fish at night you need to use lures that are made only to fish at night: Green luminous lure, Purple luminous lure, Yellow luminous lure.

Thats it - Make a good catch!!
