Core Keeper lets you fish for ingredients that can be used to create a variety of cooking recipes. Fishing works like a sort of mini-game. All you need is a fishing rod, the nearest body of water, and the patience to reel in a catch without breaking the line.
How to Get the Fishing Rod in Core Keeper
You can craft a fishing rod if you haven’t found one in the game. You will need to unlock the tin crafting level by mining tin in the clay caves biome.
Craft a pewter workbench by combining one wood, six copper bars, and fifteen pewter bars. Now you will need five wooden bars and four pewter bars to create a pewter fishing rod. Once you have the rod, head to the nearest body of water.
How to Fish in Core Keeper
Grab your fishing rod and head to a water source to start fishing in Core Keeper. The water source does not have to be the size of a small lake.
Any water source will work, however, larger pools of water have a greater possibility of discovering a particular fishing spot for single catches.
When you’re ready, right-click while holding the fishing rod to cast the line into the water. Now all you have to do is wait for the fishing rod to start moving.
To start the fishing mini-game, click the right mouse button when the fishing rod begins to vibrate. The object of this mini-game is to get the fish to the left side of the screen without breaking the line.
The key to beating the mini-game is to lightly press the right mouse button until the fish moves to the left. It will take a few tries to get the hang of it and it will be difficult to get some fish at first.
The more you fish, the more your fishing skill will increase. Improving your fishing skill will help you catch more fish and unlock new skills.
