You can try your hand at fishing, either for sport or for food, with the 'fish'
command. If you are already in water, you can just use the 'fish' command. For
fishing from a beach or the edge of water, you can specify a direction to fish
where the water may be found.
When you are fishing, you will have access to several commands that can influence
fish behavior. You can:
'bob' to attract more interest from fish. May scare off any nibblers present.
'jiggle' to entice a nibbling fish to bite. May scare off other nibblers.
'troll' back and forth to entice fish to nibble, but may lower attraction.
'tug' to set a hook in a fish's mouth.
'reel' in and recast or try to land a fish biting your hook.
Unlike other gathering skills, you must 'reel' in your line when you
have a fish on it. If you do not, the fish will get away.
Having the 'fishing' skill greatly improves the effectiveness of the various
fishing techniques, as well as the size of fish you can succesfully land.
You can use the 'fish check' command when fishing to gauge what kind
of interest fish have in your line or, if you have a fish on the line,
roughly how large the fish might be. If you are not fishing, fish check will
see if an area has been fished out or not. Gauging fish behavior and using
an appropriate technique can speed up fishing substantially.
Successfully landing a fish is dependent on your fishing skill, your
strength and the size of the fish you are catching. A tug to set a hook in
a fish's mouth greatly increases the chances of success, but takes extra
time that can be crucial when attempting to land a very large fish.
If a fish bites your line (not just nibbles), you must reel it in to catch
it. The fish will eventually break free of your line if you do nothing.
Experienced fishers have reported greater success when the light is dim,
though fish weighing over a hundred pounds have been successfully reeled in
at all hours of the day...
