How To Fish

Fishing in ARK is great for getting food but aside from that, you can find other interesting items.

You might even come across a blueprint!

Blueprints can be used to create items like saddles, weapons, armour and more.

To get started you'll need a few things.

Firstly you need a Fishing Rod, you can learn the engram for this at level 20, otherwise, you can find them in a supply crate.

Get yourself some bait, you can use Leech Blood or Sap.

Build yourself a Wooden Chair or Bench, you'll need this close by to where you intend to fish.

You have to be seated while fishing, standing will result in losing your bait and fish.

Lastly, you need to find a spot to fish, this will be a body of water containing Coelacanth, Piranhas, or Sabertooth Salmon.

Drag your bait onto your Fishing Rod to apply it, sit in your chair aiming wherever you want to cast and press left click, console players will need to use the right trigger.

When a fish bites you'll enter into a quick time event, press every key that appears, this will reel in the fish, if you don't do it correctly, the line will break.

The sequence can include any of the following letters, Q, W, E, A, S,D, Z, X, or C. 

If you press the correct keys you'll find a fish in your inventory!
