How does fishing work in Fortnite Chapter 2 – How to fish?

To fish in Fortnite Chapter 2, the first thing you need to do is get a fishing rod. There aren’t really any exact places where you can find them, but they’re not that rare. In fact, this is a common gray element, so you will come across them everywhere. You can find them on the ground as random weapons or from barrels. These barrels are in or around buildings that are near water. Again, these are hard to miss, as they have multiple fishing rods sticking out of them.

Armed with the fishing rod, go to the nearest body of water, such as a lake or a river, and look for circular ripples in the water. These circles mark the fishing grounds; in fact, if you dive under these rings, you will see a small school of fish. Either way, pull out your fishing rod and use left click to cast the lure. Just make sure to place the lure as close to the center of the circle as possible for best results.

After casting the decoy, wait a bit for the splash and the decoy to descend under the water. Left click again to draw the line, and voila, you have yourself a fish. There are several types of fish that you can catch and they will make you healthy if you eat them. There’s even one, the Slurpfish, which gives you both health and shield back. The results are random, so good luck. Incidentally, you can also catch weapons with the fishing rod in the same way. Oh, and by the way, you can apparently use the fishing rod to attract people as well, so that’s pretty fun.
