Fishing is a minigame present in Secrets of Grindea. You’ll be able to fish from most bodies of water in the game. When you stand on a spot where you can fish, a little emote will pop up above your head, and pressing the action button will make your character enter the mini game. Example below:
For as long as you’re fishing, monsters won’t try to harm you, so you don’t have to worry about some ninja respawn ruining your day!
After you’ve thrown your fishing float out, you’ll just have to patiently wait a bit for a fish to bite. Fish in Grindea is always hungry though, so you’ll probably not have to wait for long!
When a fish does bite, you’ll enter a little minigame (Inspired by Suikoden II and The Witcher 2) You’ll control a little bar, that’s attached to a larger bar, and your goal is to keep a randomly moving fish inside it. If the icon leaves your bar, the fish will escape! If you want to see it in action refer to the gif below.
You win the battle when the fish reaches the shore. For your hard work, you’re awarded the fish itself! Of course, fishing is also a reliable way to acquiring some solid boots.
