Fishing in Don’t Starve Together is a great way to stock healthy food to satisfy your hunger and health. Although ocean creatures are the main ingredients for popular healing food such as Fishsticks and Wobster Bisque, fishing can be time-consuming and requires a lot of effort and resources. This guide will show you how to fish in Don’t Starve Together using different methods and techniques.
Using the Fishing Rod
Fishing with the Fishing Rod was the original way to catch fish in Don’t Starve Together. To craft a Fishing Rod, you will need 2 Twigs and 2 Silks, which can be obtained from harvesting twigs and spiders, respectively. Once you have the Fishing Rod, you can fish in various pond variants such as Green Pond, Blue Pond, and Purple Pond. Simply equip the Fishing Rod and left-click on the pond to start fishing. Wait for the fish, hook it when the line says “Hook,” and reel it in when the line says “Reel”. Keep in mind that the waiting time depends on the remaining number of fish in the pond.
Using the Sea Fishing Rod
In the Hook, Line, and Inker update, the Sea Fishing Rod was introduced, allowing players to fish in the ocean. To craft a Sea Fishing Rod, you will need 1 Board and 3 Silks. Look for the shadow of any school of fish in the ocean and right-click on the surface to cast the line near the shadows. When the fish bites the lure, right-click again to set the hook and start reeling it in. The Sea Fishing Rod has slots for Lures and Floats, which can enhance your fishing experience. Using Seeds as a lure and Twigs as a Float is recommended for beginners.
Using the Ocean Trawler
The Ocean Trawler is a device that automatically catches fish for you. Craft it with 2 Boards, 2 Ropes, and 6 Silks. Deploy it into the ocean, lower the net, and put Lures in its inventory to speed up the catching process. The Ocean Trawler will catch the fish, and you can collect them by raising the device. Don’t forget to check your Ocean Trawlers frequently, as they may break after catching a certain number of fish.
Using the Trident
If you want a fun and effective way to fish, you can use the Trident. Unlock the Trident recipe by defeating the Crab King boss and craft it with Gnarwail Horns, Kelp Fronds, and Twigs. With the Trident equipped, cast the Geyser spell on any ocean tiles to push the fish to the surface. This method can be expensive, but it gets the job done.
