Fishing on Free Days

Fire Emblem Three Houses Fishing Guide

You can go fishing on free days to catch fish used in various dishes at the canteen. Fish can also be sold for gold at the shop. Head to the fish pond and talk to the fishkeeper to start fishing.

How to Fish

Before casting your line, you need to select some bait. This can bought at shops or obtained as rewards from quests. Note that fish are attracted to various kinds of bait. Try to stock up on as many different kinds as possible.

After choosing your bait, cast your line and wait. When a fish bites, press the A button to time your tug on the rod with the circular pattern on the screen. If done right, the fish will lose a portion of its stamina. You will lose some of your own if you do not properly time your tug. The fish will be caught once its stamina has been completely depleted but will escape if you wear yourself out.

While trying to reel in a fish, you can check its color. A red shadow signifies a big fish, meanwhile a blue shadow indicates a small one.

Spotting Rare Fish

Rare fish are indicated by either a red or gold shadow. You can also find a glimmering fish shadow, however we currently don’t know if it appears solely with Grade 5 bait.

If you’re aiming for a particular fish, refer to the event calendar to know the best times to go fishing.

  1. Fodlandy and Ancient Fodlandy have always shown up as purple shadows for me, distinctly different from the rainbow shadow for Goddess Messenger.
