Want to get yourself a fishing rod and enjoy the calm streams and lakes of Shenmue III? In this guide we explain How To Fish In Shenmue 3 as you encounter fishing spots immediately after starting the game, but you cannot unlock fishing for quite some time.
Fishing spots are clearly marked in-game by small wooden sign posts that feature a picture of a fish, convenient eh? As previously mentioned, you can find these immediately. There’s one right by the bridge where you enter at the start of the game. Later fishing spots are marked in the same way.
How To Fish In Shenmue 3
Before you can fish you must progress through the main story. Eventually your main story objective will be to meet Shenhua at Ternary Spring. On the route to Ternary Spring, you can detour to a big lake. Here you will find Huang’s Tackle, a fishing shop. You can rent a fishing rod here and even participate in a competition. The rental is for a single in-game day, unless you participate in the competition, then the rod is returned at the end of the event.
Fishing itself is simple. Find a fishing spot, cast with X, then reel in with the right stick until a fish bites. Once it bites, constantly reel in with the right stick, using the left stick to move the rod when the flashing blue lights appear on the left or right side.
