Want to catch some fish for food or raise your blue Vitamin bar? This guide will tell you How To Fish In Atlas as it’s quite a unique combination of items and skills you need in order to craft a fishing rod and use it, or there’s an alternative method that’s much quicker and easier.
Firstly, it’s worth noting that at the moment, the actual fishing system seems bugged. So let’s dive into the method that works first. It’s simple, make yourself a spear. You can swim into the ocean with a spear and attack fish that way, before dragging them back to land to harvest their resources. This works easier from a boat as you tend to find fisher out in the deeper parts of the ocean but anywhere with an open body of water can contain fish.

To make the Fishing Rod, you need to unlock Tools of the Trade and then Advanced Tools in the Survivalism tree. You then need to unlock Construction in the same tree before unlocking Basics of Building in the Construction & Mercantilism tree.
Once you have those, place your chair. Now you need some bait for your rod. You can use sugar based items, such as Sugar Cane and Sap, found in abundance on the starting islands. Drag the bait to your rod. Now, place your Fishing Rod into slot 3 of your hotbar and sit on the chair. Look at the water, select your rod, a blue cursor appears. Left click to cast your rod.
There doesn’t appear to be any visual hint when you get a fish on the hook so the spear method is likely the easiest at the moment.
