Fishing is an action using the Fishing Pole to cast in water to catch Fish. Fish are an ingredient type which can only be caught in pools of water when fishing. Fish can be used for cooking, consumed for Energy, sold for Star Coins or gifted to villagers to raise Friendship.

Even though fish are an ingredient for cooking, they're tracked in a separate section of the collection window labeled 'Fish'. The entry for each fish unlocks when they are first caught.

Moana's Boat is an important unlock to support fishing. It will provide free fish every few hours, but just as importantly will provide up to a 20% reduction in energy required for fishing which will allow more actions without needing to restore energy using food.

How to Fish

Casting anywhere into water can hook a fish, but specific (and more valuable) fish types can only be caught in 'Pools' which appear as ripples. Different colored pools denote rare potential fish.

To cast into a pool the player must position themselves so they are facing it, then charge the cast so the line drops into the pool area. If it 'attaches' to the pool the line will appear in the center of the ripple.

When a fish bites a circle will shrink around the ripple, when it enters the colored zone it will turn from white to green. When it's green, tap the action button to hook the line. If you miss the hook the fish will release (but still remain available to catch again). Some higher level fish require hooking multiple times before being caught.

There's a rare chance when fishing that Red Algae will drop, which is a rare resource used to craft fishing bait. By using fishing bait, any cast into a white ripple will turn into a gold ripple.

When fishing, if you are not currently Hanging Out with a Companion, a nearby Villager will often come to the Player's side and react accordingly to success or failure.

Energy Cost

Main article: Energy

At the start of the game, fishing requires Energy.png 150. The energy is deducted when the line is pulled or when the player misses the chance to pull, except the first pull after the initial bite costs no energy (missing the initial bite does cost energy). No energy is deducted at the time when the line is cast, but no fish have "bit" yet. Thus, it is possible to recast a line for no energy before any fish bites the line. Each upgrade to Moana's Boat reduces energy cost by 2%, capping at 20% reduction at level 10, reducing energy cost to Energy.png 120.

Villager Companions

When reaching level 2 Friendship with a Villager (aside from Ariel or Ursula), they can be assigned a Role. Villagers who have been assigned the Fishing Role will gain extra Friendship for every fish caught. They also have a chance to drop extra fish when any fish is caught while they're following. Extra materials they produce will be dropped on the ground, and can be picked up by running over them.

Each level of friendship increases the rate which extra materials will drop. It's not only effective for leveling up Friendship with these characters, but extremely helpful for offering bonus materials when fishing. Be sure to always bring a Companion along when fishing!
