Now I will guide you on how to fish and unlock the fishing rod in the game. Read carefully to make you easier to get the fish you need to survive in Atlas.
How to Fish in Atlas?
There are two initial methods to fish in Atlas, and they are:
- The easiest and simplest method is with craft a spear and then simply jump into the water and start hunting for the fish. You can get Lower level fish easily with just one or two hits needed to kill them. Then grab the fish’s body by pressing E, and carry it to shore, here you can use your Pickaxe or Axe (depending on which resources you need more of) to harvest it.
- Use the Fishing Rod, for this, you will have to unlock it first
How to Unlock The Fishing Rod?
You can unlock the Fishing Rod by unlocking the Advanced Tools skill. You’ll also need this skill if you’re looking to build your first ship, as it unlocks your ability to build the Smithy.
Then you will allow you to craft the fishing rod, for that, you need to gather the following items:
- 50 x Fibers
- 24 x Thatch
- 16 x Wood
Once you have collected all the items, then you can craft the fishing rod, but you won’t be able to use it at this time. You will need to craft some bait, which can be done by using Sap or Sugar, it will be pretty easy to find on most starter islands in the game.
Finally, you will need to craft a Wooden Chair, as you can’t just fish from anywhere, instead, you’re going to need to place down a Wooden Chair and sit on it. Now you can use your fishing rod to get some fish.
