calendar_todayPosted on 9th August 2022

Fishing is one of the main skills you can upgrade in Dinkum and this guide will give you all the details you need on how to catch all the Fish in Dinkum, the best fishing tools and other fishing tips and tricks.

To Fish in Dinkum you need a Fishing Rod and the basic Fishing Licence from Fletch.

How To Fish in Dinkum

Fishing is relatively easy in Dinkum and all it requires is the Fishing Rod tool. You can fish in any area on your Island where there is water. You can usually see all the Fish in the water that you might be able to catch, so you don't need to do too much waiting around to get a nibble.

When you see a Fish, cast your Fishing Rod. You can hold down the casting action button for a longer cast.

Fish will then head towards your Fishing Rod's Hook. The fish will then nibble on your hook, and you'll hear several splashing sounds.

Fishing Bobber

You'll only want to start reeling when you hear a large splash sound and the Fishing Rod's Bobber sinks deeper into the water. When you see this animation, start reeling in the Fish.

Reel Meter

Your Fishing Rod will have a Reel Meter on the side of it. If you hold down the Reel button as the Fish is swimming away, it will use up it's power. If the power reaches zero, the Fish will break free and get away.

One tip for is to spam-click the Reel button rather than hold it down. This will reel the fish in but not use up your Reel Power.

The different types of Fishing Tools will give you more power and faster ability to reel the Fish in.

When you catch a Fish, it goes into your Inventory taking up one slot. It does not stack, so you can easily fill up your Inventory quite fast.

You can either sell Fish for Dinks or store them in your Museum.

Fishing Tools

There are a few Fishing Tools you can use to catch Fish. Each Fishing tool will allow you to catch rarer fish that require more power to reel them in, so it's always best to upgrade your Fishing Rod when you can.
