NieR Replicant – 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

Blowfish*, Lure, Seafront: Pier

Rainbow Trout*, Lure, Northern Plains: Below the Junkyard Entrance

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 water.

Blue Marlin, Lure/Sardine, Seafront: Pier

Royal Fish*, Earthworm, Eastern Valley: Pond

Sandfish*, Lure, Desert: Sandpits

Hyneria*, Sardine, Desert: Sandpits

Dunkleosteus**, Lure/Sardine, Seafront: Pier

Rhizodont*, Sardine, Desert: Sandpits

  • * Fish required for The Fisherman’s Gambit quest.
  • ** Dunkleosteus is the only large fish that will come with three tugs.

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.
