How to unlock fishing system in Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact players can only unlock the fishing system after they have reached Adventure Rank level 30. Besides, you have to complete the world quest Exploding Population. In addition, make sure that you have unlocked the Serenitea Pot Housing System.

Moreover, the Genshin Impact Fishing system also adds an NPC named Nantuck who sells the fishing supplies, such as bait blueprints and fishing rods. You can find him near the dock outside Mondstadt city. Players need to use the fish they catch to exchange for these supplies.

Genshin Impact fishing bait formula can be used in the Crafting Bench in your Serenitea Pot world or inside three cities.

How to catch fish in Genshin Impact

There are a lot of kinds of fish in three countries in different fishing spots added in the game after Genshin Impact 2.1. Those fishes will also be attracted by different kinds of baits which are very important to catch fish. That's why knowing exact Genshin Impact fishing bait recipes is of utmost importance for fishing in the game.

Follow these steps to catch fish in Genshin Impact.

  • Craft baits in the Crafting benches.
  • Go to the fishing locations.
  • Choose the rod and bait to catch the fish species you want.
Select The Rod And Bait

  • Hold the Cast Rod button to enter aiming mode and let go of the said button to flick your bait and hook out. Don't land your hook too far from the wanted fish.

Genshin Impact fishing locations & fish respawn time

There are fishing spots across Mondstadt, Inazuma, and Liyue. Luckily, you can use the interactive map to know the locations of all fish species in this game. Access Genshin Impact Interactive Map and choose the fish you want to catch. Then, pin those locations on the minimap and get there.

Tap On The Fishing Button
The fish will respawn after three in-game days.

The game has not provided any exact respawn time of fishes in Genshin Impact. However, many players claimed that it takes players three in-game days for the fish to respawn in this game. Then, you can count the night and come back to that spot to catch fish after three nights in-game time.

Besides, the Genshin Impact fishing system also limits the number of fish you can farm per day. Each day you can catch only 50 fish.

In short, Genshin Impact Fishing respawn time is 3 in-game days. You can catch fish in the water areas in all three countries.

Lunar Realm fishing event tips & rewards

When you mastered the Genshin Impact fishing system, you can complete all missions in the Lunar Realm Fishing Event quickly and get a lot of attractive Genshin Impact fishing rewards.

Here are some tips to complete Lunar Realm Fishing event missions in one day.

Quick fishing tips

After getting to Genshin Impact fishing spots in the quests by using the Teleport Waypoint system, you stand close to the fishing location. Don't jump into the water and swim to the circle where fish respawns. To catch fish quickly and complete missions fast, you need to keep some tips in mind.

  • Stand close to the fish spawn location so that you can catch the fish at the farthest points.
  • Throw the bait in the center of the circle to attack most of the fish and get a bite fast.
  • Only catch the easy fishes, such as Medaka fish to complete easy missions. Most of the missions require players to catch 2 to 6 consecutive Medaka fish or random fish within the given time. Just choose the Medaka fish to catch them faster and easier.
  • Throw the bait near you to catch Medaka.
