There are four types of fish that you’ll be catching for this tournament in four different parts of the river: Cod, Salmon, Pike, and Sturgeon. Each of these fish belongs to a different weight category.
Before you can proceed to fish, the parts of the river must first be prepared. To prepare the area you’ll be needing Groundbait. Click on the “Prep Area” button to see how to use Groundbait.
You can get Groundbait by crafting them. There are 3 Groundbaits that you can craft and each will help you catch a specific number of fish: Catch 3 Fish using Premium Groundbait, Catch 2 Fish using Special Groundbait, and Catch 1 Fish using Basic Groundbait.
If you have the complete ingredients you need, you can start crafting by clicking on the Make button. However, do not worry if you lack the materials as you can easily get them. For the bait, you can harvest fertilized water crops. You can plant and dry Water Milfoils. While you can ask friends for help or buy the Butternut Flavor, and Coconut Creme Pop-Ups.
There is a waiting time for the Groundbait to be crafted. Take note that each fishing area differs in the amount of time it takes to craft the Groundbait.
While waiting for the crafting to finish, you can prepare another fishing area.
After the Groundbait is crafted, you can proceed to fish by clicking on the “Go Fishing” button.
