Fishing is one of the more relaxing ways to earn money! You can have deep and meaningful conversations with other players while you fish. As a civilian, use /fish near any body of water to start fishing. Civilians can also fish from a boat by pressing the 2 button. You may also like to visit a Fishery to see which fish species are in season. 

Similar to the Bonus Game, there is a Bonus Fish. The Bonus Fish is announced each game day and the first one to catch the species above a certain weight receives a large reward.

To increase your chances of catching fish, you can purchase Fishing Bait at a General Store. You can also purchase a Fishing Cooler at a General Store to store more fish in your inventory. To fish legally and avoid a wanted level for fishing illegally, you can purchase a Fishing Licence at City Hall. These items may be removed if you are sent to jail. 

Fishing Tournaments
Fishing Tournaments are fishing events that randomly occur every couple of days, starting from 4:00 and ending on 20:00. You can type /fishinfo to check the status of fishing tournaments. The winner of the tournament gets a nice reward. 

There are quite a few different types of tournaments, which can include catching the biggest fish, catching the most of a specific type, catching the most fish in general and so on.
