Whether you fish to make a living or for the simple pleasure of angling, the fishing system is the way to go.

Introduction to Fishing

In order to go fishing, you should know at least enough of the fishing skill to have some fishing abilities. Fish are animals like any other, except you can pick them up more easily and put them into containers, such as buckets of water, so that they might survive outside the water. They generally breathe only in water and require it to remain alive.

Different fish live in different environments and are active during different seasons, and prefer different types of bait.

If you bring up an actual fish, you will be able to GET it and PUT it in containers, but it's possible to snag different types of creatures as well, and the behavior of those will be more like other animals.

There are three ways to catch fish: pole fishing, spear fishing, and barehanded fishing. Each way depends on different stats and requirements for success.

Pole Fishing

The standard method of catching fish is by using a fishing pole. You can catch fish by BAITing the hook on a fishing pole and then CASTing the pole. You must be adjacent to a water room that you are casting into with this method, and it relies on strength, but is also the easiest method to bring in any fish -- unless the fish is very heavy. You can make a particular type of fish easier to catch by using a type of bait that it prefers.


  • BAIT <pole> with <bait>
  • CAST <direction>
  • REEL

Spear Fishing

The next method you can use to catch fish is by spearing them. With this method you can be inside the water, or directly next to it. It relies largely on intuition and is the easiest method for very heavy fish.



Barehanded Fishing

The cheapest and simplest way to catch fish, but also by far the most difficult, is to catch them with your bare hands. This method requires you to be inside the water, and relies mostly on finesse. It is very difficult to do with heavy fish, and also takes a lot of patience.



Once you've caught a fish

Once you have managed to catch a fish, you can THROW it BACK, or SLAP it to kill it, unless it is a very large and formidable sort of fish that you will have to actually fight.
