Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life Fishing Guide – The Basics

Yakuza 6 The Song Of Life Fishing Guide - The Basics
Fishing in Yakuza 6 is basically an on-rail shooter. The game automatically moves you through each area and you have to catch fish as you progress through. You use X or R1 to fire and either O or L1 to reload. Reloading manually is faster than having the game reload automatically, which happens when you attempt to fire when you are out of ammunition.

As you move through you’ll see fish coming across your screen. Always prioritize fish that have a glowing red aura around them. These are violent fish, fish that will attempt to attack Kiryu. If you take damage, your oxygen meter depletes quicker and the amount of time you have to catch other fish is lower.

There are also Treasure Chests scattered throughout each fishing level. You’ll want to shoot these when they appear as they can offer Catch Points or additional oxygen levels when opened. Catch Points act as the experience points for Fishing. You can use them to get better rewards, increase your oxygen levels and have longer runs.

Although player skill plays a large role in your ability to complete good fishing runs, even the best fishermen struggle without the proper equipment. Better Spearguns allow you to shoot and aim faster, reload less and do more damage per shot against the different bosses you can encounter.
