NieR Replicant ver.1.224 - Fishing Guide

Fish Type & Locations

Small Fish: These are standard fish that can be hooked after a few nibbles followed by the bob disappearing into the water, and generally require two or three tugs on the line.



Order by: Fish, Bait, Location

Shaman Fish, Lure, Seafront: Hidden Beach (Towards the lighthouse, where the seals are, as indicated with a red cross on the map while on a quest for this fish)


Sardine*, Lure, Seafront: Beach

Bream*, Lure, Seafront: Pier


Carp, Earthworm, Nier’s Village: Pond


Black Bass*, Lure, Nier’s Village: Pond


Giant Catfish, Carp, Eastern Valley: Pond


Shark, Lure, Seafront: Pier


Large Fish: A strong tug from the get-go indicates nibbles by large fish and typically you need to start hooking immediately. There’s no waiting for the bob to submerge into the water.


Blue Marlin, Lure/Sardine, Seafront: Pier


Royal Fish*, Earthworm, Eastern Valley: Pond


Sandfish*, Lure, Desert: Sandpits

Vendors sell baits, and some of them are low-level fish you can catch yourself.


Extra: Aquatic plants and dead branches are useless, rusty buckets and clumps are required for some weapon upgrades.
