To start fishing in the game, the player must find an appropriate bait first. Killing insects or smaller animals should provide the player with enough material to start a first fishing trip in the world of TESO. There is no need to buy a fishing pole, the player character already has one.


To use the bait, one must target an active fishing hole and press Q key.png to bring up the Quickslot Wheel, from which the bait can be chosen. To activate the bait, the mouse must be released.


Target the fishing hole and press E key.png to start fishing. The player should now wait a little while til a tug on the line can be seen. Then E key.png should be pressed quickly again to reel the catch in.


A more advanced fisherman will soon discover, which bait will be useful for the right fish.

Each zone also has twelve unique fish species.
