On the Map, you can only Fish in locations that have the Fish Hook Icon above it. Go to that location in the game and you should be able to Fish there. You will have to just take out your Fishing Rod by pressing E (or whichever key you have it assigned). Before you do this, make sure you have the Fishing Rod equipped by selecting it from the Trade Skill Menu (press L). If you don’t have it then go and get it.


After that just go to the Pier or Dock and Press E to whip it out. There will be a floating Bait in the water, that is your Lure. After a few seconds, a white Fish will come near it. At a random moment, it will snag the Lure and prompt a ! mark over it. That is when you will have to pull it back. To do that, just press the same key that you used to equip the Fishing Rod in Lost Ark.

To Fish in Lost Ark, you will need to have Crafting unlocked. Don’t worry as it will get unlocked as you will progress through the Main Story, once you reach Lakebar Village. Once you unlock it, you will obtain 6 different Trade Skills with their Skill Trees, one of which is Fishing. Now, you can go fishing whenever you want if you have followed this Lost Ark guide correctly.
