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 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:
/fish - Begins fishing while on a boat.
/fishinfo (/finfo) - Displays your Fishing information, including permit information, fish caught and record fish
/fishinventory (/finv) - Displays a list of the fish you are currently carrying
