Fishing is a gameplay mechanic that allows players to obtain resources and gain Mastery points through means of fishing in different liquid blocks and locations. Players can currently fish in water, lava, chocolate and plasma.
For players to start fishing, they need to have a Fishing Pole and Lures, both of which can be bought from the NPC Saltwater Sam. A Basic Fishing Pole costs 200 Glim, while lures cost 10 Glim each. Sam is located at the pirate area of the Hub World, northwest of the spawn point. Players can only fish when they have a fishing pole equipped and lures in their inventory. Not having any lures will not let the player cast, producing the message “You cannot fish without a lure”.
