Fishing is one of the most important activities in Raft. Catching fish is how you stay alive on the ocean, but ultimately you’ll want to catch fish for more than delicious meals. As you progress through the game, you will be able to collect new types of bait. Each bait moves you to a new “level” of fish rarity. Only the best fish can be caught with bait. And you’ll want to catch those rare fish to unlock everything the trading posts have to offer.

Rare Fish, Bait, and Trading Posts are all interconnected systems – yes, that sounds weird, and that’s only because they are. At Trading Posts, you can trade rare fish to increase your reputation, and the higher your reputation, the better levels of items you can unlock at the Trading Post. We’ll explain how it all works in the full guide below.
