There are several locations in the game where players can throw their hooks and try their luck in this laid-back activity. But unfortunately, when I started my game eager to try it out, I found out that I couldn't go fishing immediately. Find out how to unlock fishing and where to set up a chair in this guide!

How to fish successfully in Destiny 2 and get a Perfect Catch

Once you reach a fishing location in Destiny 2, you can begin fishing. Press the button prompt to start the mini-game. Wait for the bobber to start going underwater. Timing is essential here; you need to catch the fish just as the bobber starts going down to get a Perfect Catch. To maximize the chance of a high-quality catch, ensure you have Bait in your inventory. You can still fish without it, but the possibility of catching a high-quality fish will be lower. There are 28 different kinds of fish of the following quality:

  • Legendary quality: 10 kinds
  • Rare quality: 14 kinds
  • Uncommon quality: 4 kinds

After you catch fish, you can place them in the tank in the H.E.L.M. Each new type of fish you put into the tank will give you cool rewards, including seasonal weapons, seasonal titles, fish tank decorations, and more.
