This article contains information on the Fishing Mini-Game in Persona 5. It provides a summary on how to participate, how to catch a fish, which bait to use, and the corresponding fish that can be captured.
In comparison to Persona 4 Golden, there is no need to acquire a Fishing Rod to start Fishing in Persona 5. To start the Mini-Game, simply head to the Ichigaya Fishing Pond near Shinjuku and pay ¥3000. By paying the fee, you will obtain 7 “Small Bait.” When you reel in several Fishes, there is a chance to obtain prizes.
The best time to Fish is during the evening as the Spot offers a discount.
How to catch a Fish
The first step to become a good angler is to use the appropriate bait. The next approach is to determine which direction to throw the bait. Before throwing the bait, a Power Gauge will be displayed, and the distance covered depends on the force applied. After some time, it is possible to get a “Hit.” As soon as it reaches the red Gauge, pull it with the ○ button. Keep it aligned with the L button. To successfully catch it, you have to drag it all the way to the last tile just before you.
