Tales of Arise - All Fish Locations and Equipment Guide


Ready to do some fishing? 44 Fish to catch, 12 fishing locations! You will need to catch them all for a fishing trophy. You unlock the ability to fish automatically from story when you get to the 3rd region of the game, Menancia. When you need to exit via Talka Pond Road you will trigger a cutscene and unlock fishing, and you will get your starting rod + bait (after getting Dohalim).

Tips

To catch a certain fish, you will need a certain lure. Lures are unlocked by talking to Fishing Master, who is near the pond in the Talka Pond Road. He will reward you at certain points after you catch enough variety of fishs. You can also find lure in chests across the world, or buy from Inns.

How to catch a fish? Simple! When you fish, you can press triangle button to bring the menu and your cast setup. You can equip different rods and lures (every lure is for certain fish and when you equip one you can see for which fish it is suitable. I advise you to use different lure, otherwise you're going to have a hard time catching what you need). In lower right corner you can see which button combination is for which type of fish, so when you equip the correct lure, all you have to do is to fish, and use the buttons for fish you want to catch. When you are ready, throw your bait in the yellow circle in the pond (usually next to where you see some fish action) and use the button combination to catch a desired fish. 

When the fish is hooked (press R2 when prompt), you need to move left analog stick in direction shown on the screen (when prompted) and then you can tap X button to reel the fish. The cursor on the bar bar on the botton can't reach the right (red) end of the bar. The fish can also jump and move fast, and for that you will also get the button prompt, so by pressing the correct button you release the tension and drain HP of the fish. Repeat to catch a fish successfully.
